Berkshire Art Association Fellowships have been awarded annually since the early 1970s to encourage emerging college artists in their choice of visual arts as a means of expression. Fellowships are open to any enrolled college student majoring in art who either grew up in Berkshire County or goes to college in Berkshire County. Jurors are artists, art educators and other art professionals. They will award $5000 in prizes this year. Visit the BAA website to view recent BAA Fellowship Shows.
