A Celebration of Modernism at Stonover Farm
Artists, artisans, art-lovers, craft collectors, and furniture fetishists from the Rural Intelligence region and beyond gathered at The Barn Gallery at Stonover Farm on Friday, August 6 for the opening of 20/21 Modern Style + Studio Craft. Innkeeper and gallery owner Suky Werman (left, with her brother-in-law Chris Sallom) engaged Sarah Archer of Greenwich House Pottery in NYC as a guest curator to create a series of domestic vignettes in her 110-year-old barn. The exhibit, part of the new ArtBerkshires initiative (spearheaded by Leslie Ferrin and Sienna Patti), blends mid-century modern art, decorative objects, and furniture with contemporary pieces to create a vision of a Berkshire bohemian hideaway. The show remains on view through October 17, by appointment only.
