Berkeley Arts Council Summer Members Exhibit

The Berkeley Arts Council’s first summer Members’ Exhibit opens Friday, July 10 and runs through Saturday, August 29, 2020 at the Berkeley Art Works gallery, 116 North Queen Street, Martinsburg.

The show features 42 works by 27 member artists, and includes 2- and 3-dimensional work in painting, photography, glass, ceramics, jewelry, fibers, mixed media and assemblage.  The Council is pleased with the variety of media represented, which demonstrates the high quality and sophistication of artwork being produced in our area!  The Council is also grateful for our members’ support so we could put the show together within a shorter-than-usual timeframe.

The exhibit is open during the Berkeley Art Works business hours, which are currently Friday and Saturday from 11am to 3pm.  Keep an eye on the Berkeley Arts Council Web site, http://www.berkeleyartswv.org and our Facebook page for more information.

The Berkeley Art Works Reopens in June!

We are pleased to announce that we are re-opening the Berkeley Art Works gallery to the public for limited hours starting Saturday, June 6.  The gallery will be open on Saturdays from 11am-3pm.

For the safety of our volunteers who sit the gallery, and our visitors, sanitization procedures are in place and the gallery has been arranged for safety and proper social distancing.  The number of guests in the gallery at one time will be limited and we will require our staff and visitors to wear masks.  We are monitoring Berkeley County Coronavirus information daily to determine whether we can continue to expand our hours and offerings in the coming months.

The gallery will be open for retail sales and visitors will be able to view the current exhibition, the 10th Annual Juried Art and Earth Exhibit, which will be on display until July 4.  The exhibit went “virtual” on the Web site, https://berkeleyartswv.org, in April.

While we have had to cancel exhibits scheduled for the summer months, we are announcing a special summer members’ exhibit for July, which will be followed by our Eighth Annual Eastern West Virginia Juried Exhibit in September.

Our regular classes have been cancelled for the immediate future; however, we are preparing virtual and limited attendance/social distancing solutions to continue to offer educational programs to the community.

Remember to watch your email or visit the Berkeley Arts Council’s web site and Facebook page for information on our activities and programming; questions can be directed to the Berkeley Arts Council e-mail address, berkeleyartswv@gmail.com.
