February 8 through March 9, 2014
A lively and diverse exhibition of original works by Berkshire County high school art students celebrating the region’s talented youth will be on view.
Students submit original works to the Berkshire County High School Art Show in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, photography, 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.
Participating schools in the 28th Annual Berkshire County High School Art Show include: BArT Charter School, Berkshire School, Drury High School, John Dewey Academy, Lee High School, Lenox Memorial High School, Miss Hall’s School, Monument Mountain Regional High School, Mount Everett Regional High School, Pittsfield High School, Renaissance Arts Center School, St. Joseph Central High School, Taconic High School, and Wahconah Regional High School.
Admission to the High School Art Show is free (does not include regular Museum admission). The exhibition is generously sponsored by Berkshire Bank.
