Like a marble in the sun — Glass art gleams at Chesterwood

Glass art gleams in the woods and gardens at Chesterwood, the historic house and studio of Daniel Chester French in Stockbridge. On a bright afternoon this week I got to walk around the show with executive director Donna Hassler and the show’s curator, Jim Schantz, owner and director of Schantz Galleries Contemporary Art in Stockbridge, and talk about the young, experimental glass movement in the U.S. The show opens tomorrow, and you’ll see the story in the Eagle next week.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
