ABOUT

FERRIN CONTEMPORARY AT PROJECT ART


Visiting Hours: Open Weekdays by Appointment

OUR HISTORY

For more than 40 years, Ferrin Contemporary has been a leading source for contemporary and modern ceramic art. 
Ferrin Contemporary serves as both a project incubator and traditional commercial gallery program.
 
Curated exhibitions are presented by the gallery and in partnership with galleries, museums, and educational institutions throughout the country.
 
In addition to creating opportunities for artists whose primary medium is clay, the gallery also works with private collectors, estates and archives to offer secondary market works for sale and gift to public collections.

THE GALLERY’S MOVE

For the last 9 years, Ferrin Contemporary was located on MASS MoCA’s 16-acre campus in North Adams, MA producing solo and group exhibitions, public programs and special projects related to  contemporary ceramics. As of September 2023, the gallery will be open by appointment and welcoming the public for scheduled events. The move brings together the office, library, archives and warehouse at one location at PROJECT ART, a renovated mill building located in Cummington, MA.
Works from recent projects by gallery artists will be open to the public at Project Art by appointment only. Email info@ferrincontemporary.com to schedule a day/time to visit. 

WHERE TO FIND US

Ferrin Contemporary has moved to Project Art at 54 Main Street, Cummington, MA.

We are open for visitors weekdays by appointment.

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.
