What the Artists Have to Say About the Berkshires Arts Festiva

“I have many years of showing with American Art Marketing, specifically the Berkshires Art Festival. This show has equaled or exceeded my expectations and experiences with other top shows in the country.

This gem of show, nestled in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains, draws art savvy collectors and patrons from the Boston and New York areas, Tanglewood regulars, and the affluent summer season communities of Lenox, Stockbridge and Great Barrington. I can highly recommend the Berkshires Art Festival for someone looking for an alternative to the high-pressure, high stress, high cost of other 4th of July, holiday shows.

It's laid-back, in a beautiful setting, well-run, positive and attracts appreciative buyers. It has been a successful pleasure to be a part of this show for many years.. The artist/exhibitor can rely on a well-rounded, well-run, excellent show on all levels. The show lay-out and the selection of booth options is very artist friendly.

There are many types of booth options to accommodate a diverse selection of high quality work at reasonable cost. I've done the show for thirteen years and look forward to it every year as an anchor show for my summer. Since I first exhibited, many years ago, my booth has always been located close to the entrance/exit areas of the show.

And one observation that I can report year after year is that, from watching the crowd, all come and pass my booth at least twice. I would estimate that 75% , maybe more, of the people who come to the show, leave with something they have purchased. I see the packages! And that of course is not counting all the packages I don't see, and deliveries of large art. The percentage of people who come to buy is high…

They all come wanting and ready to purchase something fantastic, beautiful, and intriguing! The Berkshires Art Festival is a wonderful, independently run show that has been successful for me for many years. I am honored to be apart of it again!”

Richard & Joanna,
Just wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to participate in the weekend’s Arts Festival! I got off to a wonderful start on Friday selling my glass art panel “Sunflowers” and then on Saturday and Sunday, meeting several other “very interested” art lovers giving me potential buyers to follow up with.

I was particularly impressed with the caliber of people coming to the Festival who showed such appreciation and knowledge of art, definitely a booster for us artists! It was a pleasure engaging them when they showed such an interest in my work.

I loved my booth location! I loved my booth neighbors! Everything went very smoothly. And, I certainly look forward to being a part of it again next year! Also, can you please pass on my thanks to Heidi for her fabulous Facebook post on me… that was very cool. Again, thank you for your support.

All the best,
Iva

Hi Richard,
I know this is a little delayed, but I wanted to say thank you for a successful Berkshire Arts Festival. We loved everything about the event. We loved our space in the lower lodge, thought traffic and sales were great and we appreciate all the hard work you and your wife and team did to make the event a good one.

Thank you again. Hope to see you again next year!

All the best,
Donna and Larry Roy
