"Ferrin Gallery’s investment in regional artists and its impact on the local tourism industry as well as the critical mass of creativity in the Berkshires has been and continues to be significant." Cathy Deely/ Berkshire Creative Economy Council/ Excerpt - Berkshire Eagle Letter to the Editor
HIKING THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL Section by section, Leslie Ferrin is hiking the Appalachian Trail this summer. We're following Instagram's #whyiliveinwesternmass where you can find her photos and updates on hikes, such as "FIELD OF FERNS more from fourth day hiking the AT this summer CT to VT in sections heading to a leg South of Becket this week and combining dinner at Dreamaway and Jacobs Pillow in the evening - It wasn't so far yesterday but very muddy - and yes, feeling it in my legs today."

Leslie, a specialist in contemporary ceramics, is based in the Berkshires at PROJECT ART in Cummington, MA, and FERRIN CONTEMPORARY on the MASS MoCA campus. Both the gallery and artist residency program showcase top local, national and international artists whose primary medium is clay.
