Schantz Galleries, in Stockbridge, MA is home to some of the most stunningly beautiful pieces of art glass you’ll ever see. The expansive, two story gallery displays works from more than 60 talented artists.
The sparkle, shine, and transparency of glass gives it a liquid, magical look that is perfect for catching the eye and expressing the soul. Very few other forms captivate like glass art can. The way it catches the light and takes on liquid forms, the shifting tones of its multi-hued transparencies. So unique and beautiful.
If you agree, then you’ll marvel at Schantz Galleries’ museum-like collection in Stockbridge – less than 10 minutes drive from our Berkshires inn.
Visiting the Gallery
With its entrance hidden away down an alley, you may fear they’ve been duped into visiting just another gift shop. One step inside, however, and all your misgivings will be dispelled.
Schantz Galleries are a cornucopia of technique and imagination, with works by more than 60 artists on display. The galleries feature sculptures and installations by Dale Chihuly, Lino Tagliapietra, Bertil Vallien, and many other internationally-known artists.
Awe inspiring masterpieces in every style imaginable fill each gallery with wonder and beauty. While virtually every piece on display is for sale, the atmosphere at Schantz is that of a world-class art museum – not a retail gift shop.
The gallery works with private and corporate clients on architectural installations of all scales. It also curates exhibitions at places like the Bergstrom Mahler Museum of Glass, the New Britain Museum of Art, and the Morris Museum.
