The Sandisfield Arts Center Gallery is located on the first floor of the Arts Center and is available to local artists. We generally have shows each month during the season (May through November), beginning with an opening reception where you can meet the artist, view the work, and enjoy light refreshments. After the reception, the Gallery is open during performance dates or by appointment.
For 2021, we begin with outdoor receptions in June, with the Gallery open for small groups to visit. By October, we hope that the reception can be indoors in the Gallery itself, possibly with any necessary social distancing.
Please contact us at [email protected] if you are interested in having your work shown at the Arts Center.
To get a real-life sense of our gallery, watch artist J.D. Logan hanging his work for his 2018 show at our gallery (from his Instagram page with permission).

Paintings by Mel Feldman Mel Feldman began painting with watercolors and then took up acrylics, as he found acrylics are more forgiving, and it is easier to correct the work. He prefers to paint people and uses vintage photographs for inspiration, as these often tell a story. Most important to Mel is the light and the interplay with the placement of the figures. He is also inspired by Vermeer and his use of light. The impressionists — Monet, Renoir, Corot,…Find out more »
Photographs by Peter Baiamonte Artist’s Statement: “Into the Woods” is a photographic exploration of Sandisfield’s own Clam River Reserve, a part of the Berkshire Natural Resources Council’s preserved lands. I started making photographs in this park in 2017 and have continued to explore it through all seasons.

I use paint as my primary medium because the saturation of color helps convey the emotional feelings I put into the work. Color has long been a driving force in my pieces, and my interest in printmaking lies in the spontaneity and unpredictability of the medium. My current work explores what it means for a body to occupy space and how the body…Find out more »
