Mark your calendars for 10 days of county-wide creativity
ArtWeek Berkshires returns this fall featuring a fresh slate of local artistic talent. From September 15th through the 25th, residents and visitors alike are invited to explore open studios, art galleries, business lobbies, and more where the creative endeavors of Berkshire artists will be on display.
1Berkshire and the five Cultural Districts of Berkshire County (Great Barrington, Lenox, North Adams, Pittsfield, and Williamstown) are collaborating for a second year on this 10-day, cross-discipline festival.
“ArtWeek Berkshires 2022 is not your everyday art fair or music festival,” said 2022 committee co-chair Cecilia Hirsch. “With nearly 70 artists registered and many more expected by the August 9th deadline, this county-wide event encompasses everything from painting and African dance to theater and pottery, with activities that appeal to kids, families, and adults alike. There will be open studios, demonstrations, and hands-on events. It will truly capture in 10 days why the region has always attracted the world’s great creative minds, including the next Edith Wharton and James Van Der Zee.”
Patrons can experience Janet Pumphrey’s realistic-turned-impressionist photography in Lenox, learn about the role of candy in the arts (and have a taste!) at Robin’s Candy in Great Barrington, or visit artist Richard Haskins in his home studio in North Adams. Enjoy the Festival Latino of the Berkshires, SculptureNow at The Mount, Plants and Art Experience at The Plant Connector, and so much more. Check out the growing list of participating artists on Berkshires.org and mark your calendars now!
