Beginning this weekend, there will be three weekends of art exhibits curated by Amber Scoon, who is an artist and philospher, held at The Pushkin on Main Street in Greenfield.

“Quantum Art: Becoming Infinite” begins Friday from 5 to 7 p.m with an opening reception and artist talk. On Saturday from 9 to 10 a.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

“The Greenfield Six: Mixed Media Exhibit” will feature six local artists who met at Greenfield Community College in 2016. Since then, they’ve worked together. They are Peter Fath, Johanna Hoogendyk, Hannah Chase, Rachael Waring, Hannah Hurricane and Lu Vincent. Their works include paintings, drawings, sculpture, prints, mixed media and performance.

On the second weekend, Sept. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. there will be an opening reception and artist talk. On Sept. 16 and 17, both from noon to 7 p.m., “Anna, Pina, Teresa”: The Films of Cynthia Madansky will be screened. Madansky is an award-winning filmmaker and painter. She is the current recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship and a past Rome Prize Winner. Her films integrate hybrid forms of cinematic traditions, including autobiography, experimental methodologies, cinema verité, scripted narrative, ethnographic observation, as well as dance and performance.

The final weekend, Sept. 22 through 24, will be The Sketchbook Library. On Sept. 22 from 5 to 7 p.m., there will be an opening reception and sketchbook making workshop with materials provided. Then, on Sept. 23 and 24, both from noon to 5 p.m., The Sketchbook Library will feature sketchbooks or artists and thinkers from around the world. Sit, relax and look through the sketchbooks.
