Storefront Artist Project 12 x 12 Auction

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsSince its founding in 2002 by the painter Maggie Mailer, the Storefront Artist Project (SAP) has been a cornerstone of Pittsfield’s reincarnation as a creative center, offering residencies and mentoring programs that support a diverse range of artistic endeavors. The annual 12 x 12 auction features 100 twelve-by-twelve inch works—paintings, drawings, photograph, sculpture, collage—by local artists.  Guests pay $25 each for a chance to choose the work they want as their number is randomly picked. You don’t necessarily get your first or second choice of a piece of art, but nobody goes home empty-handed or unhappy, especially when your prizes are hand-wrapped by good-spirited volunteers like Chris O’Gara and Davinica Nemtzow (above.)
