“This is a great chance for the public to meet artists in the studios where they work,” said Gail Sellers, one of this year’s participants.   “There are so many different types of artists here, from painters, sculptors, potters and fiber artists, to collage artists and printmakers. It’s an opportunity to meet with them, learn about their work, and purchase work directly from them.”

The Eclipse Mill, a former cotton mill built in 1896, is home to a variety of artists and creative businesses, including G.J. Askins Bookseller, River Hill Pottery, and Brill Gallery. There is artwork on display throughout the Mill.


The annual North Adams Open Studios has been supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, with additional support from MASSMoca, the City of North Adams, MCLA’s Berkshire Cultural Resource Center, and Beck’s Printing.
