The North Adams Artists' Co-Operative Gallery, otherwise known as the NAACO Gallery, is an independently member-run organization of nearly 40 active and talented, primarily regional, artists exhibiting works in the fields of fine and applied arts.
NAACO had been born out of the larger city-wide "Downstreet Art Project", a public art project of MCLA's Berkshire Cultural Resource Center which featured galleries, museums, and other arts destinations throughout the city during its tourist season, beginning in 2008. Upon seeing the success and impact of the 2009 season, the gallery chose to keep open its doors year-round.
Located at the prominent location at 33 Main Street (at the corner of Main & Marshall Streets/Route 8) The gallery is open Monday, Thursday through Saturday from 11 to 6 and on Sundays from 12 to 4. Summer hours: Monday through Friday, 11-6, Saturdays, 11-6 and Sundays, 11-4 (late June through October 25th).
Directed by North Adams artists, Colleen Williams and Nestor Valdes, this year’s membership is a creative and outgoing group of artists with many ideas for promoting the arts and its community within North Adams.
Openings of new exhibitions take place on the final Thursdays of the month. Please see the HOME PAGE for a list of upcoming events and exhibitions.
"An art gallery with a little for - and from - just about everyone. Next time you're in North Adams stop in and have a look around."
