Ferrin Gallery in Pittsfield Being Sold at Auction

Staff Reports

The building at 433 North St. is being auctioned off in April.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Ferrin Gallery building at 433-439 North St. will be auctioned off at foreclosure on Tuesday, April 9, at 11 a.m.

Gallery has reportedly closed and moved to Cummington.

The gallery operated by Leslie Ferrin opened on North Street in 2007, after five years in Lenox, with much fanfare as a symbol of the city's resurgence through the creative economy.

Ferrin and business partner Donald Clark put the building on the market in early 2011 for $350,000, but she told The Berkshire Eagle on Wednesday that there have been no offers and the building was no longer "an effective use of our funds."

Back in 2011, in an interview with BerkshireFineArts.com, Ferrin said the gallery was no longer a central aspect for her business, saying "The biggest reason is that the business is growing in a different direction: Expanded partnerships, art fairs, and managing the artists' careers that are growing internationally."

The North Street building includes two commercial/condominium spaces on the first floor (Units 102 and 103), one of which was occupied by Ferrin Gallery, and 15 other units. The gallery was the only tenant in the buiding. The property was listed as "The 433 North Condominium Complex."

The mortgage holder is People's United Bank and Aaron Posnik Auctioneers will manage the auction.
