The Guild of Berkshire Artists is thrilled to announce that it is mounting its first in-person show in two years at Arrowhead, the bucolic home of Herman Melville in Pittsfield. The show will take place outdoors under a large white tent – think white whale! – on Saturday and Sunday, July 24 and 25, from 10 am to 5 pm each day. The location is Arrowhead, 780 Holmes Road, Pittsfield, MA. The show is free and open to the public.
In making this announcement, the Guild’s President Margie Skaggs said: “Arrowhead represents the intersection of the arts, culture and landscape of the Berkshires. Our Guild’s visual artists have often gained inspiration from these surroundings, as did writers such as Herman Melville, who spun his tale of the great white whale while gazing from his studio at the snow-covered eminence of Greylock Mountain."
Approximately 40 artists from among the Guild’s more than 170 members will be exhibiting works in oil, watercolor, acrylics, sculpture, ceramics, stained glass, mixed media and wood working.
During the pandemic, the Guild had a number of virtual on-line shows and one major in-person outdoor show, entitled Six Feet Apart, Zero Degrees of Separation , which ran during October in cooperation with the innovative TurnPark Art Space in West Stockbridge. Margie Skaggs added, “This new Guild event, following the long period of isolation, feels like a coming-out-party where we will joyously partner with Arrowhead to mount a public exhibition of our artwork.”
