Gallery Hopping in Lenox

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings
Church Street in Lenox was hopping early Saturday evening, thanks to a well-attended gallery crawl that had crowds spilling out of the galleries onto porches and sidewalks.  Church Street Gallery was featuring the work of outsider artist James Martin, an 81-year-old Seattle recluse who, regrettably, was not present for his first East Coast show.  Sienna Gallery‘s show of inspired knitwear and jewelry by the Northern California-based artist Raissa Bump drew art lovers, fashionistas (including Church Street Gallery co-owner Denise Ulick, left, whose own ensembles never fail to entertain) and an extensive network of friends-and-family of the artist, who, when she lived in the Berkshires, worked at none other than Sienna Gallery.
