In a difficult year, the BAA board hopes to award at least $5000, especially knowing that during this pandemic, many students have found themselves isolated and challenged to gather sufficient supplies to pursue their projects. ~ BAA President Mary Beth Eldridge


A gallery of recent BAA Fellowship winners may be found at berkshireartassociation.org.

The mission of the BAA is to connect artists and the community in order to inspire creativity and increase access to the visualization arts. The BAA Fellowship is funded in part by the Norman and Rose Avnet Fellowship Endowment and private donations. Additionally, local artists support the Fellowship through their 10x10 inch art donated to the 10x10 RAP (Real Art Party) at the Berkshire Museum. This year, the 10x10 RAP will be held virtually on Thursday, February 18th, 2021 as part of the City of Pittsfield’s 10x10 Festival.
