In collaboration with the Berkshire Museum and Pittsfield's 10x10 Festival in Feb., the BAA welcomes submissions from young artists from the Berkshires and beyond. Art work should be 5 x 5 inches, and prepared for hanging.
As a part of the "I Am Water" exhibition by ecoartspace and Our Humanity Matters, five billboards featuring artwork that speaks to the power of water will be featured in Berkshire County and one over the state border in New Lebanon, N.Y.
The theme suggests a feeling of belonging — whether it is to a household, a neighborhood, or a town — and how a sense of place can invoke feelings of security and inclusion while lacking that can cause anxiety and a sense of exclusion.
Artists Peter Vacchina and Robert Markey will be creating works of art made from ice in front of the Berkshire Museum on Thursday, Feb. 24. Look for Facebook and Instagram updates and live footage of this event
The exhibition consists of two galleries: one that explains the technology associated with the art on display, including woodblock printing, cels from anime series and films, and a 3D printer, and one that houses the visual art produced from the technology, placing very different works next to or within sight of each other so visitors can discover the connections between the works.
