NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The masterpiece painting collaboration between Drury High School and Cascade School Supplies has turned a corner.

Literally.

After five years of large artwork being displayed on the street side of the old Brown Street factory building, two years' worth of slightly smaller but still colorful paintings now hang on the south side of the building along Grimes Street, near Cascade's front entrance.

The second row of another 20 paintings was unveiled with a small ceremony on Thursday, marking the seventh year the students of Drury art teacher Phoebe Pepper

Point of disclosure: I am a lifelong, died-in-the-wool car enthusiast. As a child I spent endless hours on the floor pushing toy cars around, speeding under the kitchen table, through my mother's legs, around the linoleum perimeter, over the saddle leading to the foyer for the long straight to my bedroom. There, circling to the cheers of my other toys, I issued an acknowledging "zoom, zoom, rhoom, rhoom," then scooted back into the hallway and made a hairpin right into the carpeted living room, the off-road part of my imaginary Indy 500.   Thus I know and embrace firsthand the special, magical relationship some of us humans have with the spiritual successor to Old Dobbin,

The summer concert season is virtually upon us, and how lucky are we music lovers to be living right here, in the Berkshires, at what can only be described as "Music Central"?

With programs in Lenox and in Manchester, Vt., concertgoers will have a wide selection of music in a multiplicity of styles to enjoy in venues large and small: from solo jazz piano to the stellar Chris Botti with the Boston Pops, followed by a celebration of beloved show tunes by Rodgers and Hammerstein at Tanglewood. Added to this, Taconic Music offers a feast of chamber music by Strauss and Ravel, and a master class with the distinguished classical cellist/mentor Sharon Robinson.

I kept thinking, "It can't be that ... it's too obvious." Thus were my incredulous musings while trying to figure if Rachel Weisz's title character in director Roger Michell's "My Cousin Rachel" was the husband-murderer her newest suitor initially thought she was. You see, I'm terrible at unraveling mysteries. I've been trying to solve the meaning of life for decades, and still nothing.

So I had to question my suspicion, which in turn became the main reason why this otherwise average motion picture held my interest. That said, Weisz sure can sow the doubt.

Granted, it's possible that, like Sam Claflin's 24-year- old Philip, the wealthy

BCRC's Michelle Daly explains the upcoming events for the 10th season of DownStreet Art.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — DownStreet Art launched in the summer of 2008 with the goal of bringing people back to a deserted downtown with offerings of art, music and celebration.    In the decade since, the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts-sponsored program has drawn more than 150,000 people to Main Street for the once a month receptions and performances and has supported the work of 237 artists. The number of empty storefronts has dropped, forcing the project, in a good way, to utilize more outdoor and public space.    MCLA President Jamie Birge said at
