The artist members of the Housatonic Valley Art League mostly reside in the Berkshires, nearby New York State, and Connecticut, but because of the popularity of their shows, the membership has spread across America and even as far away as France. 73 recent original artworks, by 26 artists, are in the show including oils, acrylics, watercolors, photography, and mixed media..
The show is timed to capitalize on the holiday season as all the artwork is for sale.
