Sheffield, Mass. — Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation’s Artist’s Resource Trust Fund awarded $138,400 to 20 individual artists and eight organizations in New England, Columbia County, N.Y., and northeast Dutchess County, N.Y. Included is Waterfall Arts in Belfast, which received $3,000 to exhibit the work of Maine-based artists Anna Hepler and Karen Gelardi in May.

Established in 1996, the A.R.T. fund supports mid-career visual artists, age 35 and older; and nonprofit organizations that purchase, exhibit or commission work by regional artists. Since its inception, A.R.T. has awarded more than $2.6 million to 500 artists.
