Holiday Shopping Party at IS 183 Art School of the Berkshires
An ordinary holiday crafts fair can be full of things you don’t actually want to buy, but that wasn’t the case at IS 183 Art School of the Berkshires’ Color A World Scholarship Sale, which featured ceramics, leather goods, fine art, photography, jewelry and textiles by students and teachers at the school. Guests (including writer Paige Smith Orloff and Margaret Lindemaier, left) nibbled on canapés by Pronto Cooking School as the holiday shopping season officially began.
