NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — "I'll Drink to That" is a veritable wonderland of handcrafted vessels: delicate celadons, chunky tankards, prim porcelains, bowls with heft and inventive shapes.   The group exhibition at the Eclipse Mill curated by potters Gail and Phil Sellers and Arthur De Bow, gallery manager at MCLA Gallery 51, features more than two dozen artists who sculpt functional art out of clay.     "I think it's really cool when you have an exhibit of something that's as simple as a cup and then you get to see so many interpretations of what a drinking vessel is,  is just amazing," said Stephanie Boyd of Williamstown, who

At best, director Nikolaj Arcel's "The Dark Tower," a sci-fi, fantasy western gleaned from Stephen King's best-selling, eight-volume series, might serve as a vicarious mitigation of the horror currently befalling America. The film is clearly about the war between good and evil, albeit related only coincidentally to the nightmarish battle between those forces now commanding our national stage. Whereas our real fight waits for afeared and hesitant patriots to awaken, the movie provides a quick fix of honesty and justice.   But otherwise, while fans of the horror meister's franchise might be pleased to see the saga all gussied up in celluloid, the great unwashed will

Come late August, classical aficionados are grateful for the cornucopia of musical riches the Boston Symphony bestows to rapt audiences within the incomparably bucolic setting that is Tanglewood. Many of those superlative concerts will reside in our collective memory for a long time.

During this penultimate week of the Tanglewood Festival, the spotlight will focus on a range of classical fare in varied genres: from chamber and vocal music by Bach, Dvořák, Schubert and Mahler to symphonic works by Beethoven, Brahms and Richard Strauss.

Looking ahead, these last two months of magnificent music making are but a prelude to the fall array of area classical offerings on the

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Hugh Jackman has it. The young Robert Redford had it – that preternatural ability to exude charisma and magnetic sexiness even when standing stone still. Aaron Tveit has it, too, in addition to his impressive singing, dancing and acting skills.

Tveit is the star of Barrington Stage's "Company," one of Stephen Sondheim's biggest hits, and he is just the tip of the talent iceberg in this simply fantastic production. "Company" premiered in April of 1970, and while it's not quite as relevant today as it was back then – when marriage was more de rigueur – it still resonates with its humor and irony. Practically the

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Truly Independent Wrestling is having trouble settling into its new home.   The fairly recently formed company is planning to hold monthly wrestling shows and workshops teaching sports entertainment. The independent promoters formed last year and held shows in Pittsfield and recently signed a lease at the Berkshire Mall, utilizing space in the former Old Navy store.   But the building inspector has concerns and wants more documentation filed before the next show on Aug. 26. The wrestling promoters say they did what he asked. Both claim the other hasn't been responsive to requests.    The organization moved to the mall and scheduled its

The group of citizens are hoping to put a halt on the sale of the artwork and engage in a larger conversation about how to fix the museum's financial woes. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Save the art, pause the sale. Save the art, pause the sale.   That's what was chanted outside of the Berkshire Museum on Saturday morning by close to 50 community members who want to halt the museum's plans to sell some 40 pieces of artwork in an effort to straighten its finances.   The Berkshire Museum has averaged a $1.1 million annual deficit over the past decade and has crafted plans to completely revamp the museum.   That, however, includes auctioning off some $50 million

Tanglewood this week will be very rewarding and diverse, with spectacular musical riches across the centuries, representing the progressive continuum of styles: music that's both ancient and new, and everything in-between.

Tanglewood continues its classical programming into mid-August, featuring powerful symphonic works – all audience favorites - performed by the Boston Symphony. The "heavy hitters" are: Stravinsky (the primordial "Rite of Spring"), Beethoven's exultant/tragic Seventh Symphony, Brahms (the magisterial Double Concerto for violin and cello and the Violin Concerto, and Schubert's C Major Symphony No. 9 ("Great"), among

Faced with reviewing writer-director David Lowery's supernaturally obscure "A Ghost Story," my first inclination is to ask myself, 'Why didn't I just see some nice, old-fashioned cowboy movie?' Y'know ... something about the waning days of the Wild West, where there's nothing more symbolic to scrutinize than the ubiquitous tumbling tumbleweed. How nice, how tranquil, how straightforward. But nooo, I have to complicate my life by trying to describe in normal human words a film preoccupied with no less than eternity and the meaning of life.   Were I back at Olde Ivy Film Criticism College, still bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and "A Ghost Story"

With the arrival of August, we are at the height of the classical music festival season. Programs this week at Tanglewood offer a diverse and intriguing mix of symphonic music by Mozart, Mendelssohn and Rachmaninoff. The prodigious pianist Garrick Ohlsson has a busy week in store: He will perform Chopin's two piano concertos on successive evenings, and will offer a solo recital of works by Schubert and Scriabin on Tuesday evening in Ozawa Hall. Added to this, programs 4 and 5 in the special series "Schubert's Summer Journey," featuring Emanuel Ax, Yo-Yo Ma and Mr. Ohlsson, will surely be not-to-be-missed musical high points.

Enhancing the offerings above, be sure to
