ince the mid 1970's The Housatonic Valley Art League, formerly the Sheffield Art League, has had at least two summer art shows, first for a long time at Dewey Hall in Sheffield, MA, and then in different locations in Great Barrington and Lenox, MA.

The "Our Berkshires" themed Juried exhibition was scheduled to open on July 2, in Great Barrington, but the Corona Virus Pandemic has forced us to cancel those plans and find another way to exhibit while keeping viewers safe.

So, here it is, our maiden journey into the realm of virtual reality. Please venture in and enjoy the show. You will see how 32 local area artists and beyond, exhibiting 51 works of art, are inspired by the beauty that surrounds us here in the Berkshires.

We would like to give special thanks to our jurors, Ann Getsinger and Julie Shapiro, for their hard and diligent work. Besides being the final word on which artworks made it in to the show, they also bestowed awards on six outstanding works that stood out from the rest. Take a look and judge for yourselves.

Note: All works are for sale. If you are interested in purchasing an artwork or have a question, please send your inquiry to info@hvart.org, with your name, email, phone number, the title of the work, artist's name, and any questions you might have. Either the artist will get back to you to answer your question, or our treasurer, Elsa Karr, will contact you with "how to purchase the art".
