Berkshire Art Gallery Great Barrington, MA
Established in 1995, the Berkshire Art Gallery, located at 80 Railroad Street, Great Barrington, MA, 01230, features a wide range of American and European paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries. The Gallery specializes in works by artists who achieved great success in their lifetime, but whose accomplishments may not be reflected in today’s marketplace considering the quality of their work. Many studied in Europe or were associated with prestigious teachers or museums, such as Robert Henri or William Merritt Chase, or the National Academy of Design, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Their works can be found in museums and important private collections.
Paintings by National Academy Members such as Guy Wiggins, Karl Schrag and Philip Jamison also can be seen, along with works by March Avery, Leo Blake, Joan Potter, Richard Mc Andrew, David Bareford, and many others.
The beauty of the Berkshires has long been attractive to artists. Consistent with this tradition, the Gallery shows representational paintings by select contemporary artists who live or work in the area or are inspired by its natural beauty. Sculpture and works on paper also are exhibited. Beginners and seasoned collectors alike will find an aesthetically enriching experience in a Gallery that one reviewer said specializes in “paintings that sing”.
Parking for patrons is available in front of the Gallery. For information, contact Jack Wood, (413) 528-2690.
