Project Art was established by gallerist Leslie Ferrin and artist Sergei Isupov as a live-work space for the production of ceramic art.  Ferrin Contemporary maintains a library, archives, and gallery to support the activities taking place in the building.

Located in a fully renovated 19th-century mill building on the Westfield River in rural Cummington, Massachusetts, Project Art offers studio space,  workshops, and residencies for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers, curators, and critics. We offer support for the completion of research, artworks, and exhibitions.

Project Art is open to the public by appointment and for programmed events. Artist Salons feature resident and local artists, and visiting scholars who present their work, opening a dialog with the wider art community. Master workshops are offered to benefit artists working in clay. The public gallery hosts shows by residents and visiting artists as well as group shows. Many of these are held in connection with Ferrin Contemporary.
