Seven galleries, a number of open studios, and Berkshire Pulse Dance Studio are inviting all to drop on by Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21, from 11:00-6:00. This year’s aHa! Art Walk also includes several special shows and events, including a group show of a dozen local artists being presented at Berkshire Pulse, at 410 Park Street.
Housatonic, a village of Great Barrington, MA, has long been the home of galleries and artists’ studios. Art Walk, by aHa!—the Association of Housatonic Artists—has been produced for dozens of years to celebrate the galleries and artists of Housatonic.
New with this year’s aHa! Art Walk is a group show highlighting Housatonic artists whose studios are too far flung to be part of a convenient open studios route, and these artists will exhibit at Berkshire Pulse during the Art Walk. In addition, Berkshire Pulse will be presenting the works of several other artists.
Other shows, to be seen at ad hoc gallery space at the corner of Main Street and Front Street, include watercolors of the Berkshires, by Bob Taylor; sculpture by Peter Barrett; and furniture, by Chris Hogan. Also being shown in this space is work by Dan Mead and Sally Eagle, widely published travel and nature photographers, whose stunning work has gained wide recognition, including, most recently, as a finalist in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010 category, from the Natural History Museum, London, England.
Special and ongoing shows from Housatonic galleries and studios, include Lauren Clark Fine Art; Deb Koffman’s Artspace; Kate Knapp’s Front St Gallery and Studio; Lorimer Burns’s Ceramics/Borealis Studio; and Mimi Hassett’s Porch 204.
