MEET THE ARTISTS is a series of 3- minute video profiles of Western Mass area artists and musicians. These videos put faces to the statement that Northampton is the “Number One Best Small Arts Town in America.” They will promote work at local galleries, open studios, be welcoming for potential visitors — and be fun to watch.
Seeing how artists set up their studios, learning about why and how they do what they do, will connect people to the local arts community in new ways.
Personally, I know I’m more likely to go to an opening of a photo exhibit if I’ve met the artist or feel connected to their work. Showcasing process and passion, the MEET THE ARTISTS series will connect people to the astounding talent in this area on intellectual and visceral levels, and open up the art world to expanded audiences.
