On Sunday, players from the Boston Symphony Orchestra will be in Pittsfield to perform a free chamber music concert at the Colonial Theatre.

It was truly a Rural Intelligence party weekend: Mezze Bistro hosted Carhartts + Cocktails for CSA farmers (and friends), the Norman Rockwell opened its J.C.

These days, there’s no one type of condo residence, especially in our region.

A week-long residency at the Spruceton Inn near Hunter Mountain reminds Alana Chernila of the joys of cooking for one. As the only grapefruit fan in her family, she takes this mini working vacation as an opportunity to create a special little treat for herself while enjoying the peaceful and majestic beauty of the Catskills.
While parts of our region are covered in snow, others are beginning to sprout blooms in the forests and flowerbeds, and all areas are feeling a bit spring feverish. It’s the perfect time to leave the house and attend a talk about art, rivers or history; or go hands-on with Slavic Easter egg decorating or a photography workshop.
Easton+Combs, the internationally recognized architectural studio located in New Marlborough, is headed up by husband and wife team Rona Easton and Lonn Combs. Here, Rona discusses how time spent in Rome led to her family's Berkshires relocation, and describes the duo’s plans to bring energy efficiency to the area.
