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).
