The Northampton Arts Council and Forbes Library are proud to announce the 2017 Northampton Biennial. This is the second Northampton Biennial to include both poetry and visual arts.
For the 2017 Biennial, the Northampton Arts Council asked artists and writers who live and work in Western Massachusetts to submit their best work created in the past two years which most closely represents their personal artistic vision.
The jurors selected work in a wide variety of styles and media from 32 artists, including painting, printmaking, book arts, photography, video, and sculpture. Their selections reflect their shared interest in experimentation, innovative use of materials, and an open-ended approach to narrative.
