Ferrin Contemporary specializes in ceramic art circa 1950 – present. Originally established in 1979 by director, Leslie Ferrin, the business began as a gallery program, evolving over thirty years at various traditional gallery spaces and through participation in international art fairs. As gallery director, Ferrin became known as a curator and project manager working in support of represented artists and in partnership with commercial galleries. Ferrin Contemporary has been the preferred source for artwork by established and emerging artists and designers whose primary medium is clay, for private collectors, institutions and the media. Based in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, Ferrin Contemporary is located at Independent Art Projects on the MASS MoCA campus in North Adams, Mass and maintains a business office, library and art warehouse at Project Art, an artist residence in a renovated, 19th-century mill building in Cummington, Mass. Ferrin, along with a team of art professionals, provides services to private collectors and project and career management to artists.
