West Stockbridge, MA--The No. Six Depot Gallery is pleased to announce the second annual 30under30 multimedia exhibition featuring the work of thirty young artists connected to Berkshire County. The Berkshires, at large, are replete with young talent that goes underrepresented in the public sphere. This show creates a forum for this work to be shared. The show will run from February 20th, 2018 - April 20th, 2018, with an opening reception on February 25th from 4-5:30 p.m.

Twenty-one visual artists will be featured in the show: Molly Ann AlmeidaSam Backhaus, Lee Blackmer, Brielle Collings, Wes Elliot, John Humes, Amy InglisSydney KeyesSam Laiz, Daniel Lowenstein, Fiona McTeigue, Dana Miller, Mika MintzDana PiazzaErin Potter, Emma Sims-Biggs, Ruslan SpragueIsabella Tobiason, Rebecca van der Meulen, Olivia Wade, and Fiona Wood.

During the show, several live events will be held including:

  • INKLESS Live Storytelling on Saturday, February 24th at 7pm. Dinner (empanadas, salads and soups) starting at 6pm.
  • A night of poetry, music, and the spoken word created by Conor McCaffrey and performed by Conor, Rachel Coopersmith, Michele Hatchette, and Lia Russell-Self (Alternative Facts) on March 24th
  • A collaborative performance on April 7th that exposes vulnerability through dance (by Anna Masiero), film (by Marc Zambrano), and light (by Isabel Filkins). There will be two showings: 6pm and 8pm.
  • A film screening featuring work by Jane Burns, Jordyn Cormier, Sam Laiz, Mika Mintz, and Marco Zambrano on April 14th.

30under30:2 is a colorful display of the young talent found right here in the Berkshires. The show exhibits a vast spectrum of creativity via a motley collection of artists and art forms including photography, painting, sculpture, woodwork, film, dance, poetry, lighting design, and more. The work ranges from an investigation of “the strangeness inherent in being human”, to a “pursuit of childlike curiosity”, to “self-determining progression, growing freely like ivy.” Some work is born from somewhere in between uncertainty and rigid measurement, trauma and healing, absolutely bizarre and laughably mundane. Some work dares the onlooker to be intimate. As a whole, 30under30:2 showcases the remarkable creative versatility of our local youth.

30under30:2 will run through April 20th, 2018. Most of the artists (including the curator, Mika Mintz) will be present at the opening reception on February 25th, from 4 - 5:30 p.m. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. every day. For additional information, please contact Mika Mintz by email at, or by phone at 413.717.0384; or Lisa Landry at or by phone at 413.429.7929. You can also visit our Facebook page (#30under30).
