In a loft in a mill in North Adams, local artists are elbow-deep in clay. In a cow pasture in Vermont, a plein air painter sets up an easel. As our museums and colleges have grown, a vibrant arts community has grown around them.
- Berkshires-based painters show at art spaces across the world. John MacDonald catches the light on winter trees. Stephen Hannock’s landscapes open into endless skies, and Jessica Parks sees architecture through prisms and rainbow light.
- Indoors and out, regional sculptors, ceramicists, fiber artists, and metalsmiths explore our world in three dimensions.
- Open ridges and the beauty of our natural surroundings inspire the work of top photographers including our own Carol Stegeman.
- Within the Mass MoCA complex, the Artist Book Foundation, co-founded by publishers who have worked with some of the most respected museums in the country, creates books that artists and art-lovers value.
And that’s only the beginning.
Assets for Artists, a project of Mass MoCA, helps artists in many disciplines to find and build financial and business resources and supports artists in moving to the area. Resources can include a matched savings grant program for individual artists, professional development workshops and one-on-one coaching, a residency program at Mass MoCA and more.
The artists listed here live and/or work in the Williamstown region. Their presence reveals the rich artistic atmosphere inspired by our community.
