Berkshire Museum

Pittsfield, MA

Explore the work of three unique artists with disabilities who have created large-scale paintings in CATA visual arts workshops throughout the year. The paintings in the exhibit were created in CATA’s Artistic Realization Technologies (A.R.T.) painting workshops. Developed by artist Tim Lefens, A.R.T. is an adaptive painting technique that allows individuals with significant physical disabilities to precisely execute their creative vision with the help of a trained tracker, who acts as the hands of the artist.

“Each of the artists in this exhibit [,,,,] has worked with CATA for a decade, using the A.R.T. technique to develop their own signature style. This innovative approach has opened the door for each of them to share their considerable artistic talents–to communicate to the world something that might otherwise have gone unsaid or unseen. [....]

All three CATA artists featured in this exhibit were recently recognized in a grant from the Artist’s Resource Trust, a fund of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
