      Van Gogh and Nature

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Daily until August 31, 2015

      From his earliest letters to his last great works of art, Vincent van Gogh showed an extraordinary fascination with the natural world. Youthful studies of trees, flowers, and heath-land were accompanied by verbal descriptions of the changing seasons, while increasingly ambitious pictures showed the Dutch landscape in all its aspects. His travels to England, Belgium, and France brought new encounters with nature and a shift from biblical perspectives to modern attitudes influenced by contemporary literature and science. Van Gogh and Nature will be the first exhibition to explore this subject in depth. Some forty oil paintings and ten drawings will survey the artist’s developing relationship with his natural surroundings.

They have continued to use Marriages of Reason as a broad classification for all of their subsequent unique and variable edition prints.

      Andy Warhol lived and breathed books. From his student days in the 1940s to his death in 1987, Warhol experimented wildly with form and content, turning traditional notions of media and authorship on their heads. He co-produced a satirical cookbook mocking fashionable French recipes; held coloring parties for crowdsourcing his own promotional books; and designed a pop-up “children’s book for hipsters” featuring sound recordings, holograms, and a do-it-yourself nose job. Warhol by the Book is organized by The Andy Warhol Museum, one of four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.

      Van Gogh and Nature

      Clark Art Institute

      225 South Street, Williamstown MA 01267

      Daily until September 13, 2015

      From his earliest letters to his last great works of art, Vincent van Gogh showed an extraordinary fascination with the natural world. Youthful studies of trees, flowers, and heath-land were accompanied by verbal descriptions of the changing seasons, while increasingly ambitious pictures showed the Dutch landscape in all its aspects. His travels to England, Belgium, and France brought new encounters with nature and a shift from biblical perspectives to modern attitudes influenced by contemporary literature and science. Van Gogh and Nature will be the first exhibition to explore this subject in depth. Some forty oil paintings and ten drawings will survey the artist’s developing relationship with his natural surroundings.

      musicinnlenox1For nearly thirty years, from 1950 to 1979, just down the road from Tanglewood, was a place dedicated to the presentation and perpetuation of the American musical tradition. Over the course of three decades Music Inn presented hundreds of concerts, many boasting the greatest names in jazz, folk, blues and rock music. From its very inception in 1950, it was a place where jazz along with folk and blues could be enjoyed as well as investigated, created, discussed and dissected. Music Inn was no mere concert venue. Rather, like its neighbor down the road, it was the setting for some of the most remarkable music ever made in the Berkshires. A stage where some of the most significant social and cultural transformations of the postwar era were played out in all their triumph and tragedy. Event is free. 6:00 – 7:00pm.
