A portrait of the artist as a young man – in Dalton


DALTON — Raised in Dalton, Brian DiNicola is Berkshire grown. But his paintings, which have been displayed in galleries from San Diego to Boston, haven’t made their way into the county’s art scene.

“In a way, I feel like I’m foreign to the art scene here,” DiNicola said in his studio on Wednesday night, three days before his 29th birthday.

DiNicola’s efforts to change that began when he displayed portraits at the Saint Francis Gallery in Lee last year, and now he’ll be one of six artists with Berkshire roots whose work will be highlighted in a new exhibit at The Stationery Factory.
