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

ADAMS, Mass. — The state's highest peak was revealed on Tuesday to be the location of a school of wizardry.

J.K. Rowling, author of the immensely popular "Harry Potter" series, released a short story on Tuesday on the history of Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at Pottermore.com.

"It stands at the highest peak of Mount Greylock, where it is concealed from non-magic gaze by a variety of powerful enchantments, which sometimes manifest in a wreath of misty cloud," she writes of the hidden granite castle.

The North American version of Hogwarts was founded by Isolt Sayre, an Irish woman of wizarding heritage, who fled to the New World on the

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The technique of paper quilling isn't a common one in the contemporary art world, but North Adams resident Lisa Nilsson embraced the antediluvian medium and elevated even beyond her contemporaries to her inventive and intricate — and almost obsessive — images that stretch the form to its limits.

Quilling is a hundreds-of-years-old paper craft that involves rolling strips of colored paper into formations to create images with a three-dimensional quality.

Nilsson had previously worked in the format of box assemblages, which allowed her to create in a variety of mediums and she was always on the lookout for something new to add. After becoming

Watching "Finding Dory," the sequel to the 2003 megahit "Finding Nemo," it occurs that perhaps even children of John Birchers and Ku Klux Klan members exposed to the high-minded sentiments of this sugary tutorial in liberalism will leave the theater a bit more tolerant.

However, while colorful, intelligent and starring the witty articulations of Ellen DeGeneres as the winsome title fish, Andrew Stanton and Angus Maclane's undersea metaphor could have better tickled its target audience's funny bone. I laughed more than the kids did.

Granted, my observations are anecdotal. Maybe it has something to do with cell phones and unconscious multitasking. But the mostly

ADAMS, Mass. — The signs have been around the area for weeks: tiny doors to enchanted realms, fairy princesses, visits from the Fairy Queen Deidre and wardings from the Wizard Grulaach.

It's all leading up to the Berkshire Mountains Faerie Festival this Saturday at Bowe Field for a day filled with music, magic, parades and activities that will be capped off that night around a dragon fire pit. And, of course, fairies.

The idea for those tiny doors that have been appearing in businesses and municipal buildings around the area literally opened the way for the festival that organizers are hoping will become at tentpole attraction for the area on par with the Massachusetts

In the three preceding weeks, I previewed the musical offerings at six leading music venues: in Massachusetts: Tanglewood (Lenox,) Mohawk Trail Concerts (Charlemont,) and the Bang On a Can Music Festival at Mass MoCA (North Adams); in New York: Tannery Pond (New Lebanon); in Vermont, there’s the eponymously located Manchester Music Festival and Marlboro Music.

This week, I’ll turn the spotlight on three more: South Mountain Concerts in Pittsfield, Music Mountain in Falls Village, Conn., and the Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, N.Y.

If, like me, you’re a devotee of the string quartet, you’ll want to attend programs at the two preeminent venues in the region that
