Additional specific exhibition opportunities occur throughout the year.

Special Opportunities

Artist Honorarium Fund: Every season the CAC chooses one artist to create a new piece specifically for exhibition in North Adams (CAC Project Space, performance, or site specific). The artist will be awarded between $500-$1000 and an optional one to two week residency to complete this work.

Project Space: This gallery is set aside specifically for artwork proposals of an experimental nature. The space is particularly suited for installation and time based work.
