Online Art Show to Benefit COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

Guild of Berkshire Artists pledge partial proceeds from Summer Celebrations sales

The Guild of Berkshire Artists announces its second online art show, “Art in the Time of the Pandemic,” to benefit the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund for Berkshire County. The show is viewable now on the Guild website, A reception will be held via Zoom at a date to be announced.

The Guild invites you to contact individual artists to chat or buy a piece that you see in the show. The artists are generally available to give a brief overview of their work, perhaps highlighting a particular piece, and can also offer additional works that are not online.
