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

'Maggie's Plan': Has a Comic Twist

Because it is very New York, sophisticated, intelligent, witty, provocative and well written, I think Woody Allen would like director Rebecca Miller's "Maggie's Plan," just in case he's reading.

It is of course about love among the scholarly and introspective, the whys and wherefores therein, with a smart meditation on that emotion as life's essentially indefinable motivator. Though Miller, who wrote the screenplay with Karen Rinaldi, doesn't add to anything Shakespeare has already apprised us of, she gives it a good, seriocomic rummage.

Meet Maggie, the sweet, unassuming administrator at The New School in quiet, innocent and hopeful search of her destiny.

Concert venues in the Berkshires and southern Vermont will provide a dizzying mélange of classical programs across the full musical spectrum this summer. From early music to avant-garde, from Bach to Beethoven, and light years ahead to the Bang On A Can Festival at Mass MoCA, there’s music in practically every style to stimulate and please all tastes.
 
Last week I highlighted three major venues where classical music rules: Tanglewood (www.bso.org), Manchester Music Festival (www.mmfvt.org) and Tannery Pond (www.tannery-pond-concerts.myshopify.com). For complete concert schedules, information and to purchase tickets, visit their websites.
 
And that’s not all.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — In 16th and 17th century Spain, many of the masterworks of Titian and Reubens were available only to the privileged few.

Starting Saturday, visitors to the Clark Art Institute have the privilege of seeing several of their important works, on loan for the summer from the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid.

"Splendor, Myth, and Vision: Nudes from the Prado," on view through Oct. 10, explores the relationship between Flemish master Peter Paul Rubens, his predecessor, the Italian Tiziano Vecelli (Titian) and their respective patrons, Spanish monarchs Philip IV and Philip II.

The relationship between Rubens and Titian is obvious. The former emulated,
