Enjoy an afternoon in celebration of the talented young artists from Berkshire County high schools. The opening event will include refreshments, the chance to meet the artists behind the works on view, as well as a special 2 p.m. lecture for budding artists and their families, provided by Massachusetts illustrator/cartoonist John Roman.
This year the High School Art Show showcases 118 works of art from 14 different schools in Berkshire County. Students submit original works to the yearly exhibition in a variety of media, including painting, drawing and sculpture. The young artists learn how to prepare their work for a gallery show, acquire a personal understanding of the exhibition process, and have the opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional museum setting.
Admission to the High School Art Show is free for all Berkshire County high school students and their families and teachers, and to others with regular Museum admission. The exhibition is generously sponsored by Legacy Banks and The Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Participating schools in the 24th Annual Berkshire County High School Art Show include: BArT Charter School, Berkshire School, Drury High School, Lee Middle and High School, Lenox Memorial High School, Miss Hall’s School, Monument Mountain Regional High School, Mount Everett Regional High School, Mount Greylock Regional High School, Pittsfield High School, St. Joseph Central High School, Taconic High School, and Wahconah Regional High School.
