PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Art Gallery at Bagels Too, 166 North St., for the month of July, will be showing the most recent series of artworks by beloved and powerful Berkshire artist Anne Pasko of Lanesborough.

Last summer, Pasko was diagnosed with and told she had inoperable pancreatic cancer. After her immediate shock, disbelief and despair, her feelings drove her into her studio to experience, express, work through and, ultimately, emerge as herself with new depths from the life-altering digression she was now enmeshed in.

As her feelings surfaced, she created collages to make them visible, one by one, for herself, the people most closely surrounding her, others who have gone or are

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Drury High School Marching Band will head to Washington, D.C., this weekend to represent Massachusetts in the National Independence Day Parade on the Fourth of July.

And although the school year may be over, the band was hard at work marching laps around the track this past week.

“The band is prepared; this is just getting them back in shape. It is a parade, and it is going to be hot weather,” Band Director Christopher Caproni said. “We are going to play the song 25 times, so this is just getting them used to playing for that long again.”

More than 50 members of the marching band met at the track over the past week to practice turns,

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — DownStreet Art opened for its eighth year on Thursday, ushering in a summer of exhibitions and events in the city's downtown and four monthly downtown openings.

As in the past, empty spaces are being filled with pop-up galleries and studios. But what's new is a targeted approach to help some of these initiatives endure beyond the summer and activities to bring the community and artists closer together.

"We're very excited for what's being planned," said Mayor Richard Alcombright at this year's kickoff. He sees opportunity in the "Meet Your Neighbors" theme of partnering artists and non-artists at community events like

In one scene of director/co-writer Roland Emmerich's "Independence Day: Resurgence," brainy scientist Julius Levinson, played by Judd Hirsch, berates his equally brainy scientist son, David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum), thusly: "So, it takes the end of the world for a son to visit his father?" It is but one of a long list of clichés the filmmaker surmises would attend a planet facing Armageddon at the hands of alien beings. Uh, well, more correctly, it's not at the hands of, but at the tentacles of, which of course is much scarier.

Skipping my usual diatribe and head-scratching inquiry as to why folks would want to see a film about our threatened

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Before Mass MoCA, before DownStreet Art, the Contemporary Artists Center was a converging point for the creative.

The Beaver Mill center hosted a plethora of artists — from the established to the up-and-coming, from the home-grown to the international. Now selected works from nine of those artists will be on display at the Berkshire Art Museum in "Berkshire Artists of the Contemporary Artists Center 1990-1999" as part of the DownStreet Art season that kicks off Thursday evening.

Eric Rudd, the center's founder with his wife, Barbara, and its original director, said the focus of the retrospective is on CAC artists with a strong connection

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Common Folk will unveil its new home Thursday evening during DownStreet Art with a gallery opening and live music.

Common Folk, the local artist collective, has never really known a sense of permanency throughout its existence. The group has moved from location to location throughout the downtown as it grappled with funding challenges or compatibility issues.

However, co-founder and creative director Jessica Sweeney said Common Folk may have found a more lasting location at 33 Main St. that is almost 2.5 times the size of its last home on Holden Street.

"Holden Street was not working. There was the noise and we needed more space ... we moved here and we are
