Thanks to Richard and Joanna Rothbard, founders of the Berkshires Arts Festival who kept the faith during the struggles of the pandemic, as soon as it was safe, they quickly got it all together!
Through all the nasty drizzle came the crowds...art enthusiasts who braved the weather to support us! What really impresses me are the people who come, so appreciative of art and artists, so many want to know about the work and my guest book is now full of potential commissions. Looking forward to next year!

Featuring 175 jury selected artists from across the country, the Berkshires Arts Festival is recognized nationally as one of the most respected summer art events in the country.
Founded by the husband and wife team Richard & Joanna Rothbard, the Berkshires Visitors Bureau rates the Berkshires Arts Festival as one of the top ten "Hot Spots" in Western Massachusetts. With its relaxed atmosphere, great food, exceptional art & fine crafts, puppet shows, and live music, it's a great weekend for the entire family.
A wonderful weekend in the Berkshires, this event was fabulous! Met fantastic artists from around the country and was impressed by the knowledgeable art enthusiasts coming to the show. I look forward to being a part of it again next year.
