TKG Art Opening - First Fridays Artswalk  
Friday, December 2, 2022 5:00 PM Eastern Time (Eastern) - 8:00 PM Eastern Time (Eastern)
Downtown Pittsfield, MA

The Guild of Berkshire Artists features member artists every month at
TKG Real Estate 137 North Street, Pittsfield, MA 01201.

To show as an artist: REGISTER HERE

First Fridays Artswalk is a monthly program in Downtown Pittsfield that connects businesses, galleries, artists, and the community in an effort to put on an “Artswalk” on the first Friday of every month from 5 to 8 pm.

Businesses and galleries join the program and agree to host a different artist in their venue every month. The Artswalk committee distributes a monthly brochure/map featuring all venues and artists for the current month, as well as coordinates a wide array of other advertising.

On the first Friday of the month, venues stay open during the 5 to 8 pm time frame and host their featured artist at a reception with food/drink provided by the artist. The Artswalk is self-guided; however, there is also a guided walking tour that takes participants through all of the venues for free!

Venues enjoy increased traffic to their locations by people on the Artswalk and the artists enjoy the opportunity to display and sell their work.

The community is encouraged to not only come out on the first Friday of the month, but ALL MONTH LONG to see the art!

Password: 926317​
 

Artists are invited to a panel discussion led by Susan and David Honneus  on zoom BEST Practices (Professional/Development). What topics would you like to consider in future seminars and panel discussions? Bring your ideas!

Possible topics which have been proposed include:
“licensing our art”
“What happens to our art when our heirs get it?”
“how to ship large art works?”
“What did you learn The hard way and can share with other artists”
"to lease or not to lease"

Please share with us any answers you have to this question as probably most folks would be interested in what you learned.

One offering is “Color Interaction using Josef Alber's course"  (five of us met weekly  from January to June, learned a lot and plan to continue this fall and want to share this with other interested artists willing to work in small groups (we zoomed!).

What are YOUR ideas?
