An Elegant Way to Shop Local in Lenox

On Saturday night, Michele O’Hana unveiled LOCAL, her sophisticated new shop in the Lenox Commons. A combination gallery, workshop, salon, and meeting place, it features handcrafted work by dozens of local artisans, including paintings, photographs, jewelry and ceramics. Some of the most beautiful objects are the ethereal porcelain pieces that O’Hana makes herself, and many guests snooped around her workspace with its kiln in the back of the the store. LOCAL (55 Pittsfield Road/Route 7; 413.553.3557) will be open seven days a week through Christmas Eve.
