Just minutes from Hampton Terrace, a first Friday tradition lets you enjoy the summer air and enjoy the arts all at once: The First Friday Artswalks in neighboring Pittsfield.
First Friday Artswalks fall on the first Friday of each month on North St. Pittsfield, in the Upstreet Cultural District. These Artswalks feature gallery exhibits, work from individual artists, and displays by the hospitality businesses along the corridor as well. You will find art everywhere – in galleries, bars, restaurants, even medical centers and real estate offices.
The monthly Artswalk kicks off the month’s exhibits for the participating venues, and each month the exhibits change.
This sample program from the June event gives you an idea of the layout, the diversity of the destinations, and the density of the offerings. The July program will be posted shortly on the event site.
A variety of artistic media are represented each month – photography, sculpture, paintings, and more await your discovery. Live music is also featured as part of the Artswalk experience, depending on the month. Both local/regional artists and artists from further abroad are invited to show their work.
