WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — "Autumn Fields," a new series by internationally acclaimed artist Barbara Ernst Prey, will be on view from Sept. 25 through Oct. 31 at the Barbara Prey Gallery in Williamstown.

The exhibit features a new series of never-before-exhibited “plein air” paintings, many of the Berkshires. At once stylistically innovative as well as cognizant of tradition, Prey’s work is celebrated for her use of strong colors and emotive, transcendent explorations of the contemporary landscape.

As one of the key figures of 21st century landscape painting, Prey was appointed by the president of the United States to the National Council on the Arts, the

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Freedom isn't free.

But thanks to the Clark Art Institute, a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see one of the founding documents of our freedom will be free -- if you have a child.   In response to overwhelming interest to the Clark's special exhibit, "Radical Words: From Magna Carta to the Constitution," the museum is offering free admission to adults accompanied by a child on Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m. through Oct. 26.   "We have had a lot of success with the Magna Carta show, especially with school groups," Clark Director of Communications Vicki Saltzman said this week. "We are actually at full capacity in terms of our

Seething is the word that comes to mind as writer Dennis Lehane's "The Drop," about very bad doings in the underbelly of contemporary Brooklyn, unfolds. It seethes with ill will.

But what makes it even more disquieting is that, lounging at Cousin Marv's neighborhood bar, you mightn't know at first blush what illicit things happen here. You wonder, perhaps having an innocent pint or two, how often you've unwittingly sat amongst those involved in the most perfidious of pursuits.

Cousin Marv's, you see, run by James Gandolfini's Marv, is a drop

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mount Greylock Regional School freshman Niku Darafshi knows about playing in orchestras with people of varying age groups.   When she was a kindergartener at Williamstown Elementary School, her mother lobbied to have the budding violinist be allowed to participate in school orchestra, previously an activity reserved for pupils in fourth, fifth and sixth grades.   "I was playing with all these sixth graders, and I was in kindergarten," she recalls. "I got to learn from them because I was so young. ... Now, there are kids in the orchestra from kindergarten all the way up to sixth grade. I'm happy about that."   And she was

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The nation's founding documents are being overshadowed by a far older declaration of rights.

The Magna Carta, dating to 1215, is on view at the Clark Art Institute until traveling to the Library of Congress in November.

"It's been called the birth certificate of democracy," said the Very Rev. Philip Buckler, dean of Lincoln, where this rare version of the "Great Charter" resides.

The charter, forced upon King John by his nobles, outlines some of the enduring cornerstones of democracy — freedom of religion, due process and justice that can't be sold.

"You can see how relevant Magna Carta is," he said.

It is to Oscar Jaenada's notable credit that his impersonation/depiction of Cantinflas completely convinces us that he was indeed Mexico's most famous and beloved comic film star, even if, unfortunately, much of the humor will be lost on English-speaking audiences.

We take the story's word for it that he was very funny, and recognize the characteristic angst he shares with our own Pagliaccis. But too little of the icon's pun-filled patter translates. Otherwise, director Sebastian del Amo's traditionally assembled biography is convivially entertaining and

  Eva Green is graphically nihilistic in the violently uncomical comic world of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'

Whether you call it beautifully ugly or repulsively beautiful, there's no denying that Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" is fanatically violent. That's doubtlessly the intent.

While some of the cutting-edge ideas and eye-popping visuals surely impress the gray matter, after a while enough is too much. I like to think I've evolved far and away from any distant ancestors' appetite for the random mayhem
