Join us for Berkshire Art Association’s annual 10×10 Benefit Event! The 5×5=10, an exhibit of work by Young Artists under the age of 10, will also be on view at the Berkshire Museum, our co-host for this event.

We hope you will purchase a raffle ticket in support of this benefit. 

ARTtix may be purchased on the Berkshire Museum website through the night of the 10×10 Art Show Benefit. ARTix will also be sold at the Berkshire Museum front desk during the exhibit and the night of the party. Admission to the event is free.

Tickets sell out, so remember to buy early and often. Show your love and support for BAA by purchasing MORE than one ticket.

Artists from the Berkshires and beyond have contributed 10×10 inch original works of art to be raffled off for just $25 each. Young Artist have donated 5×5 inch works to be raffled for $10 each.  

“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 President Mary Beth Eldridge. Long-time attendee and contributing artist Jesse Tobin says, “It’s my favorite art event of the year! I donate and buy a ticket so I can win a piece of art that would normally be out of reach!”

This annual benefit supports Berkshire County students through BAA College Fellowship awards, provides art project awards to county art teachers and students, grants free student admission to the Berkshire Museum, and more.

The BAA launched the 10×10 RAP (Real Art Party) — now the 10×10 Art Show Benefit — in 2013, a fun(d) venture with Storefront Artist Project and the Berkshire Museum to benefit Berkshire art students. Art is donated by artists, shown at the Berkshire Museum, and sold via ARTix at a culminating party during the City of Pittsfield’s 10×10 Festival in February. The $25 ARTtix guarantees the buyer to a work of art to take home the night of the party.

Proceeds from the 10×10 Art Show Benefit will benefit Berkshire County: BAA Fellowships for college art majors • Art field trip awards for high school art classes • Free admission for art students to the Berkshire Museum.

This event is part of the City of Pittsfield’s 10×10 Festival.
