PARTY WITH REAL ART AND TAKE A PIECE HOME FOR JUST $25 AT THE 10×10 RAP

Artists from the Berkshires and beyond are contributing 10×10 inch original works of art to be given away for just $25 each at the 10×10 RAP (Real Art Party) at the Berkshire Museum on February 19.  The art show and party will benefit Berkshire County art students through BAA Fellowships for college art students, art field trip awards to Berkshire high school art departments, and free admission for art students to the Berkshire Museum.

A $25 ARTtix guarantees the buyer to a work of art to take home.  ARTtix may be purchased beginning on February 10 at the Berkshire Museum admissions desk through the night of the 10×10 RAP, if available.  Tickets often sell out, so be sure to buy early and often!  The doors open for the party at 5:30 pm and the drawing begins at 7 pm.  Tickets will be chosen in a random order and the bearer will be able to choose any work of art that is still on the wall to take home.  Admission for the evening is free.  “It’s always a fun community event that brings out the best of our local artists as well as some friendly competition from the crowd!,” says BAA vice president Danielle Steinmann.

Interested buyers can start to pick their favorites when the 10×10 RAP show goes on view at the Berkshire Museum on February 14 through the February 19th culminating art party.  Donated work will also be posted online at berkshireartassociation.org and the Berkshire Art Association’s facebook page, facebook.com/berkshire.art.  The show will include work in many mediums:  drawings, prints, textiles, photography, collages, and ceramic art.  In the words of BAA president Mary Rentz, “The cost makes REAL ART affordable – art in every home!”

The 10×10 RAP is a collaboration of the Berkshire Art Association, the Storefront Artist Project and the Berkshire Museum.  Artists interested in donating to the event can find details at berkshireartassociation.org.

The 10×10 RAP is being presented as part of the Pittsfield’s 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival coordinated by the City of Pittsfield’s Department of Cultural Development and sponsored by Berkshire Gas.  For additional information, visit berkshireartassociation.org or contact Mary Rentz at berkshireart@gmail.com.
