Opening Reception: December 1, 5-7pm

The “99 Cents Affordable Art Show” celebrates the artwork of local and previously featured artists at MCLA Gallery 51 and includes sculpture, ceramics, watercolors, jewelry, paintings, postcards, collages, photography, printmaking, handmade books and stationary, and more! You’ll see several past DownStreet Art artists in the mix as well.
All artwork can be taken from the gallery when it is purchased and is priced between $1.99 and $99.99.  This year’s participants include Derick Belford, Stephanie Boyd, Kathline Carr, Valerie Carrigan, Paul Chojnowski, Carrie Converse, Arthur De Bow, Zoe Doucette, Peter Dudek, John Estes, Richard Harrington, Sarah Haze, Jennifer Huberdeau, Ellen Joffe-Halpren, Amrita Lash, Corwin Levi, Larry Lorusso, Petrea Mannello, Jonas McCaffery, Julia Morgan, Melanie Mowinski, Josh Ostraff, Wilma Rifkin and Mollie Trova.

We’re celebrating another holiday tradition with the 3rd Annual Unsilent Night North Adams. Organized by MCLA Berkshire Cultural Resource Center and Frog Pond Creative, Phil Kline will be joining us to kick off the 25th Anniversary season of Unsilent Night performances.
For the North Adams, MA edition, participants will gather in the MASS MoCA parking lot beginning at 5:15pm for distribution of a limited number of boomboxes and cassette tapes, as well as technical assistance as necessary. At 5:30pm, Phil Kline will lead the group chorus of boomboxes and other devices on a 40 minute walk, ending at MCLA Gallery 51 for the opening of the 99cent show.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own boomboxes or other sound-making devices (the louder the better!) and to prepare a cassette tape, CD, or download the mp3 or Unsilent Night app before arriving. Tracks can be downloaded or streamed at
