      sound #1 (2)The prints in this exhibition are titled Marriages of Reason since obvious compositional necessities required Blasdel and Koch to unite two images onto one surface. “As we have continued to work together, our joining of ideas and image has become more homogeneous and compositional issues have become more natural to our process,” states Blasdel. They have continued to use Marriages of Reason as a broad classification for all of their subsequent unique and variable edition prints.

      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.

In this clinical romance two young volunteers, Tristan and Connie, agree to take part in a experimental drug trial. Succumbing to the gravitational pull of attraction and love they manage to throw the trial off-course, much to the frustration of the clinicians involved.

      The History of the Music Inn

      Mt. Greylock State Reservation, Adams MA 01220

       

      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.

Partipants will learn the history, methods and tools used in bonsai, with a focus on basic pruning, styling, potting and aftercare for cold-hardy bonsai. This plant will need a cold place to be stored for the winter so it will not be happy living inside your home. Using your newly minted skills, practice with your own tree to begin a bonsai collection. Instruction, bonsai plant, tools, soil and pot are all included in the cost of this class. We will be working with Japanese Garden Junipers for this class. Members $145; Nonmembers $155 (fee includes all materials). 10am – 12pm.
