First Fridays ArtswalkBack to Calendar
Pittsfield’s First Fridays Artswalk is the largest year round monthly visual arts event in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Following a successful kickoff in May 2012, Artswalk’s first full year of art shows, openings and events in downtown Pittsfield’s Upstreet Cultural District begins in 2013, recurring on the first Friday of each month, from 5pm-8pm.
Each month, local artists display their work in unique exhibits ranging throughout all art forms, including visual and performing arts. These exhibits are shown in venues throughout downtown Pittsfield in established art galleries as well as spaces you may not think of intuitively. Partnering venues include Gallery 25, Lichtenstein Center for the Arts, The Marketplace Café, Bagels, Too and Aerus Electrolux among many others. Opening receptions for these various exhibits typically take place during Artswalk; Exhibits usually run throughout a given month.
The lead sponsors of First Fridays Artwalk are Berkshire Money Management, Gallery 25, the Berkshire Art Association, The Berkshire Eagle and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Other sponsors include Berkshire Bank, Berkshire Medical Center, Downtown Pittsfield Inc., WJ Blueprint and the City of Pittsfield.
