NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A new collaborative artist venture is expected to open on Main Street by the end of June.

The Maker's Mill, a textile and paper shared-creative space, was approved on Monday night by the Planning Board to open at 73 Main St., in the former I've Got Goodies chocolate shop, owned by Scarafoni & Associates.

"This will be the first maker space of its kind in North Berkshire County," Kate Barber, chairman of the nonprofit's board and a paper maker and printer, told planners. "It will be reserved for artist and makers to collaborate, share their ideas, learn ...

"We hope that its location on Main Street will help bring vibrancy to

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Jennifer Crowell has joined the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts community as the director of the Berkshire Cultural Resource Center, housed at MCLA Gallery 51 in downtown North Adams.

Crowell previously worked at BCRC as its program coordinator, from 2013 to 2014.

“I could not pass up the opportunity to work with the students at MCLA once again,” Crowell said. “Every time I saw a student that I had worked with, or a MCLA faculty or staff member, I realized how much I missed the community there, and the community of North Adams.”

Crowell said she is happy to be back at BCRC as the organization continues to provide leadership

I soon found it wise not to check my watch while viewing director Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Hoping that a sizable chunk of time was bringing me nearer to film's end, I inevitably learned that scant milliseconds had passed between inquiries, which only added to the despair and boredom. Admittedly, there are a few good moments.

But then a true optimist could probably say the same about a stay on Devil's Island. So the short review is, unless you're a diehard fan or video games are your second language, save yourself.

It was in a diner late at night in a time long, long ago, after the bars had closed, when, opining about current events and the perceived circumstances of my reality, a waitress pressed her hands onto the counter, peered deep into my eyes and asked, "Who's to say what's real?"

Oddly, while he was doubtfully privy to said event, writer-director Alex Garland nonetheless expounds on the waitress' provocative query in "Ex Machina," his hypothetically enticing foray into artificial intelligence. It's the best science fiction to come down the cinema pike in a

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — French artist Henri Matisse once said "creativity takes courage." In the case of a new Berkshire County endeavor, some courageous and creative minds have come together to solve a pressing problem.

The problem? The lack of safe, fun, convenient places for single people to find potential partners. The solution? BerkshireFlirt, which seeks to connect Berkshire singles through events and social networking.

The creative minds behind BerkshireFlirt are, not surprisingly, creative people. Noel Henebury and Stephanie Mendoza both work at Barrington Stage Company. Julia Dixon is managing director of Berkshire Creative. And Jenn Gomez works for College

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — In the first part of the 20th century, Claude Flight and his disciples were doing some cutting edge work.

Literally.

Flight is an innovator and leader of a short-lived boom of linocut printmakers that thrived in London in the 1920s and '30s.

He and his contemporaries are celebrated in the Clark Art Institute's exhibit "Machine Age Modernism," on view in the Clark Center through May 17.

The show features colorful, intricate and often highly abstract images of everyday life in England between World Wars I and II. It also gives a sense of the political sensibilities of Flight and artists he mentored at London's Grovesnor School of Modern

Mrs. Goldberger taught me nothing if not to be a snob. But I think if I were sitting at her kitchen table, having endless cups of coffee, puffing on cigarettes (we all smoked then) and discussing "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," she'd laugh and, in her European accent, say, "He's so silly, and he needs to lose weight badly. But he's brave, and he loves his daughter so much. She's a little overweight already, too. She should watch. The second wife left him after six days, no? Poor guy. He's not a real policeman, you know ... just in the mall. You
