The Hyde Collection

Ellsworth Kelly created Diagonal with Curve XII, Blue #611 for his friends, Werner Feibes and James Schmitt. In conjunction with the opening of the Feibes & Schmitt Gallery, this exhibition of more than 70 prints examines Kelly’s experimentation with curved fields of color, from tight ellipses and shapes with rounded corners to broad arcs and segments. Many of these geometric shapes derived from his simple line-drawn images of nature. Twenty-six prints from his Plant Series will form a small companion exhibition in the Whitney-Renz Gallery. All the works come from the extensive collection of Ellsworth Kelly prints belonging to the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation in Portland, Oregon.

August 1 - September 9    GREAT BARRINGTON ARTS MARKET
Church Street - Great Barrington, MA
Announcing the opening of the 5th annual Great Barrington Arts Market (GBAM). GBAM offers visitors the opportunity to buy unique art and craft made by local artisans in a variety of media and price ranges. The market has a new home on Church Street, just outside the Farmer’s Market from 9am-1pm on Saturdays this summer.

GBAM seeks to bring local artists directly to market with potential customers and adds another exciting destination to Great Barrington’s already vibrant Saturday mornings. Our new location makes it even easier and more convenient to enjoy shopping for local gifts.

Market founders Kathryn Burkle and Molly de St André are both artists (of KathrynBee Designs and Moho Designs) who loved the idea of helping connect other local craftspeople with a viable market opportunity and wanted to see Great Barrington’s outdoor Saturday market expand. They believe that the Farmer’s Market shopper recognizes how important it is to support the local economy and that a venue for artists to sell their work directly to the community is an obvious match to the Farmer’s Market. In a community where so many residents believe in the importance of keeping dollars local, GBAM offers locals and tourists another fun and interesting weekend activity and is quickly becoming a summer Saturday tradition.

The Market will be held on every Saturday between June 17 and September 9th, and will feature 8 local artists including Dan Bellows, Crispina ffrench, Berkshire Four Poster, JK Custom Furniture & Design, Ellen Grenadier, Aubry

Shakespeare & Co

- Lenox, MA 
(413) 637-3353
"...as sharp cut as a diamond and as hard of surface.”
—New York Review of Books

”Forty years ago R. W. B. Lewis won the Pulitzer Prize for his biography of Edith Wharton, and in our 40th Season we celebrate her heritage and Dennis Krausnick’s many adaptations of her works with these two delightfully pointed and charming social satires. In Roman Fever, Grace and Alida reminisce about the Colosseum, having known each other so well for their entire lives, or so they think. The Fullness of Life unveils in charming fashion that the afterlife, while enchanting, may not be all that it's cracked up to be.

Come relish the language and perspective of this brilliant writer and her faithful adapter. Tea and levity shall be served.

August 25  THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MUSIC INN
The Mount
2 Plunket Street
- Lenox, MA 
(413) 637-8242
Lenox, MA - - As part of the year-long Lenox 250th Celebration, The Life and Times of Music Inn will take place on August 25 3:00pm at The Mount in Lenox. The event will feature stories, video, audio tracks, memorabilia, and other Music Inn memories. Tickets are $10 (free for The Mount members) and will mutually benefit The Mount and Music Inn Archives and its upcoming book project.

From 1950 – 1979, The Music Inn, situated just east of Tanglewood in the former barns and outbuildings of Wheatleigh, was home to a dynamic music scene that can rightfully be called legendary. It existed in several iterations, from the original Lenox School of Jazz to the Music Barn to Lenox Arts Center, and performance stages for those who were or would become music icons. Presenting performers, Louis Armstrong, Pete Seeger, and David Brubeck to Muddy Waters, The Band, Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, The Kinks, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley and many, many more, Music Inn remains a piece of Lenox’s heritage.

David Rothstein, who with partners Bob and Olga Weiss, took over the Music Inn in 1969, embarked on a mission in 2010 to capture the story and spirit of Music Inn that still resonates in a wide community of people who played, worked, and attended concerts there.

Rothstein enlisted Lee Everett, photographer/graphic designer, and Lynnette (Lucy) Najimy, multimedia producer, to research and build the Music Inn Archives Website. The website is a rich collection of articles, stories, images, live audio recordings, and memorabilia contributed by hundreds of people connected to Music Inn. In the 7 years since, there has been a steady stream of regards, stories, images, memories, and inquiries from people around the world, including media, publishers, and American music researchers.

In 2007 Ben Barenholtz, George Schuller, Benjamin Barber, Casey Meade, and others collaborated to produce Music Inn, a documentary film. The film has been highly requested and screened privately, but not yet been made available publicly.

Several Music Inn Reunions and Meet-ups have drawn folks from around the Berkshires and across the country. These included a Shenandoah Reunion in 2010 at Racebrook Lodge, a Good Friend Coyote concert at The Guthrie Center in 2012, a Jay and the Americans concert at the Colonial Theatre in 2014, several lively meet-ups at Bascom Lodge and around the County, and other gatherings.

As the enthusiasm and momentum for Music Inn show no signs of slowing down, the Lenox 250th Anniversary Committee invited The Music Inn to participate in its 2017 celebration. As a mutual benefit for The Mount and Music Inn Archives, “The Life and Times of Music Inn” on August 25 at The Mount will include a remembrance of Benjamin Barber who was an active and enthusiastic contributor to the documentary film and to the Music Inn Archives until his death in 2016. His mother Stephanie founded and ran Music Inn in the 1960s.

The August 25 event will also mark the launch of the Music Inn Book Project, which will be a physical interpretation of the digital archives including stories, clippings, memorabilia, and images from the three decades of Music Inn.

The organization seeks funders, volunteers, and content contributors to be involved in the upcoming book and encourages submissions of stories, memorabilia and photographs at www.musicinn.org, or Music Inn on Facebook.
