Berkshires Arts Festival to be held August 21-23
Lenox Show Cancelled until 2021
The Town of Lenox and the Producers of the Berkshires Arts Festival, Richard & Joanna Rothbard will launch the first Art+Design + Fashion Fair in 2021. This will be a juried event taking place in the Town Center Parking lots and various other locations downtown. Categories of art to be included in the fair will be Sculpture, Textiles, Furniture, Ceramics, Wood, Fashion, Glass, Painting, Drawing, Jewelry, and Leather.
RECYCLED ART MARKET
The Fair will feature a special "RECYCLED" Market Place. All makers of recycled or repurposed artworks are invited to exhibit.
We invite everyone who is inspired to create or has created original recycled works to exhibit in our Recycled Market Place.
The Recycled Art Market's mission is to educate and excite Berkshires County residents about waste reduction, reuse and recycling and to inspire them to see the things they may otherwise consider trash in a new, beautiful way. It’s amazing what can be created with a bit of metal salvaged from a riverbed, broken glass, a mis-matched kitchen spoon and some imagination.
Artists successfully upcycle trash into treasure, combining recycling and innovation to show creative ways to save our resources, while making one of a kind art. The event demonstrates the resourcefulness of the artists and has grown into a powerful economic development tool for existing and emerging artists.
A minimum of 75% of each piece must be recycled materials. It is the unique creativity of these works that inspires people to think twice before tossing out unwanted items.
