September 1 - October 6   GREAT BARRINGTON ARTS MARKET
Downtown Great Barrington Alongside The Great Barrington Farmer's Market
18 Church Street
- Great Barrington, MA (413) 429-6830

A curated outdoor market featuring local and regional handmade gifts and products. Announcing the opening of the 6th annual Great Barrington Arts Market (GBAM) alongside the Great Barrington Farmer’s Market and their new expanded season that runs from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day weekend. Every Saturday from 9 -1, GBAM offers visitors the opportunity to buy unique art and craft made by local artisans in a variety of media and price ranges. Great Barrington Arts Market is on 18 Church Street, just outside the Great Barrington Farmer’s Market. The Farmers Market is celebrating 28 years, with 36 local vendors from across Berkshire County, live music, ready to eat food and community events.
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 Kathyn Burkle and Molly de St André are both artists (of KathrynBee Designs and Moho Designs/Petit Pilou) 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 sister market for the Farmer’s Market. In a community where so many residents believe in the importance of keeping dollars local, GBAM and GBFM offer locals and tourists another fun and interesting weekend activity and is quickly becoming a summer Saturday tradition.
The Market will be held every Saturday, May 26 through October 6, and will feature 10 local artists each week including Petit Pilou, JK Custom Furniture and Design, Berkshire Four Poster, Ben Evans, The Peach Tree Jewelry, Aubry Woodworks, KathrynBee Designs and many others in media including ceramics, jewelry, textile/clothing design, woodworking, painting, printmaking and fiber arts.

- Pittsfield, MA (617) 750-5003

Four NUarts Studios & Gallery artists ~ Laura Didyk, Caroline Kelley, Peggy Morse, and Sally Tiska Rice ~ participated in this year's social media challenge known as #The100DayProject. Each artist chose a specific creative focus and posted new work daily for 100 consecutive days. This year marked the fifth year of this amazing project as a “free global art event that anyone can participate in.” The project has exceeded over one million posts at the hashtag #the100dayproject on Instagram.

To celebrate this accomplishment, NUarts Studios & Gallery will highlight these artists during First Fridays Artswalk on September 7 from 5:00 - 8:00pm, and share their projects with the community. NUarts is also taking this social experiment even further by hosting a 100-Day Project Global Meetup during FFAW. This will provide an opportunity for other artists in the region who participated in the #the100DayProject to present examples of their projects on some of the gallery walls of NUarts!

"This is my third year participating and it's been one of the most formative, difficult, and rewarding things I've done as a creative person. At the end of each project, I have a huge, new, surprising body of work, and I've improved and grown as an artist in ways that keep revealing themselves." ~ Laura Didyk

September 14 - 16   FRESH GRASS FESTIVAL 2018
MASS MoCA
1040 MASS MoCA Way - North Adams, MA

An opportunity for enthusiasts to both appreciate and participate, FreshGrass is a family-friendly festival, brimming with bright talent on four stages, and also in our galleries, brick-lined courtyards, and grassy field, produced in partnership by MASS MoCA, the FreshGrass Foundation, and No Depression.

Music starts early in the museum courtyards, moves to our spacious (and grassy!) urban concert meadow, and then continues until past your bedtime with wild and woolly late-night barn dances in the Hunter Center on Friday and Saturday nights. The lineup is jam-packed with guitar gods and banjo gurus, traditionalists, and trailblazers — artists you already know and love interspersed with FreshGrass discoveries. Taken together, it’s an expansive group of performers who both draw on the past and look to the future. We like to think of it as “great music uprooted.”

The FreshGrass Award celebrates new talent, with cash prizes to the contest winners. Finalists in the band, banjo, fiddle, and the No Depression singer-songwriter categories perform for a panel of industry professionals on Saturday and Sunday of the festival, with winners announced on Sunday afternoon. Open to all festival-goers, the contest showcases the future of bluegrass and roots music when the bands play original and traditional tunes. With prizes totaling $25,000, grand prize winners receive a performance spot at next year’s festival, recording sessions at Compass Records, and handcrafted instruments from festival sponsors.

Kripalu Center For Yoga & Health
57 Interlaken Road
- Stockbridge, MA (413) 931-5230

2018 Erikson Institute Fall Conference for Scientists, Researchers, Scholars, and Clinicians.

This conference is generously sponsored by Bill and Deborah Ryan.

This conference offers an exciting opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange between the psychology and cognitive science of representation and the rapidly growing field of computational psychiatry. Ultimately, we seek to better understand the mind-brain connection in health and disease, moving toward an end to the enduring mind-brain dichotomy in the conceptualization and treatment of mental illness. This conference brings together, for the first time, these two important areas of cognitive science and synthesizes their differing perspectives in a way that is clinically meaningful.

Tuition: $295/person (if lodging at Kripalu); $405/person (if lodging off-site).

From the low-fi, sparse folk-melancholy of her 2010 EP, Strange Cacti, to the electrified, polished rock ‘n’ roll bursting from 2016’s beloved and acclaimed My Woman, Angel Olsen has refused to succumb to a single genre, expectation, or vision. Singing her precise, often revelatory lyrics with a warbling wild voice that blends Dolly Parton and Patti Smith, Olsen swirls sun-kissed dream pop and brooding garage rock into something whole, impressionistic, and new. On the heels of a jam-packed summer of music Olsen rolls into town, along with the electronic music artist Julianna Barwick whose hypnotic, otherworldly sounds open the show.
