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, Assets for Artists provides professional development workshops, business coaching, grants, and an artist residency program with monthly open studios.
And that’s only the beginning.
