Established in 1997 Anchor House of Artists  opens opportunities for artists  who have not had or have lost access to show opportunities, studio lives or career equity by reason of persisting mental illness that, in effect, compromises the competitive thrust required of artists in the mainstream artworld.

Housed for the past twelve years at 518 Pleasant Street in Northampton, Massachusetts, U.S.A.,  Anchor House artists have found platforms to exhibit and sell work far beyond the Pioneer Valley (Washingto D.C., New York City, Chicago, Boston, Baltimore, Boulder…), yet even more importantly the stable of artists here have found each other and have been supported as they emerge, redefined as the artists they always were.

The studio with a small gallery attached covers 2000 square feet of recovered industrial space, and is  1/2 mile north of Exit 18 off of Interstate 91 next to the Shell gas station.  Hours are Wednesdays from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.; Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. EST

Appointments to see the gallery are welcome, too. You can arrange an appointment at your convenience by calling the studio at (413) 584-4323 and asking for Michael Tillyer.
