Hello PRESS readers! My name is Kate and I am the 2015 BHIP intern for PRESS this summer. Today is my third day in the gallery and my first day opening by myself, so come on down and visit me on Main Street! I am a rising senior at Davidson College in North Carolina where I am studying for a BA in Art History with a minor in Mathematics (something most people call an unusual combination but it makes perfect sense to me!). So far, I have had the chance to meet not only the other memebers of my BHIP cohort (pictured left visiting The Mount during orientation), Melanie and Jonas but also Nicole, last summer’s BHIP intern. Orientation and my introduction to PRESS has been a whirlwind with Jonas’s show Amalgam opening on my first day at work. It was exciting to get to meet the North Adams community and PRESS fans! I am excited to see what this summer has in store for me and to learn more about PRESS, North Adams and Berkshire region and the work it is doing with creative place making!
