PRESS RELEASE- Downing's Local Artist Exhibition Program Features Sandisfield's Tina Sotis
March 21, 2008

Pittsfield- State Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D-Pittsfield) is pleased to announce the opening of  local artist Tina Sotis’ exhibit in his district office, located at 20 Bank Row in Pittsfield.  


“Each artist has their own unique gift and I love seeing the vast array of talent we have here in western Mass.,” said Downing.  “I’m lucky to have such beautiful works displayed here in my office.  I welcome everyone to stop by and check out Tina Sotis’ paintings.”


Fourteen of Tina Sotis’ pieces will be on display throughout the months of April and May.  From her studio in Sandisfield, Tina Sotis uses oil paint on canvas or wood to convey subtle moments that seep between an unfolding or unseen drama.  Sotis relies heavily on her inner vision to guide the composition of her works saying, “I have always questioned superficial truths and am drawn to situations that depict a quiet revelation of deeper meaning.”  Her paintings are introspective and compelling.


Downing’s Local Art Exhibition Program provides artists from Berkshire, Hampshire and Franklin Counties a public venue to showcase their works.  Local art is typically on display for two months; all are welcome to visit during normal business hours to view the rotating collections. 


Local artists interested in displaying their work in either of Senator Downing’s offices may contact Allison Johnson at (413) 442-4008.
