WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- The Williamstown Cultural District will hold the first of two Summer Sundays events on July 17 from 2 to 5 p.m.
The event, which has appeared in various incarnations over the years, will, this time around, showcase local performers, artists and vendors this weekend and again on Sept. 18.
The festival will be held on Spring Street, rain or shine with a full range of entertainment and activity, indoors and out. Highlights for July 17 include:
♦ Artist Jared Gelormino creating a sculpture onsite, using found objects, original ceramic pieces, paint and foam. At 4:30 p.m., he will present a “talk back” for any curious onlookers. This Artist-in-Action activity is funded through the Cultural Council of Northern Berkshires.
♦ Amrita Lash Pottery, selling handmade ceramic mugs and serving bowls
♦ Mandolinist Jean Imelda, playing a solo show of Brazilian choro, a joyful and sophisticated musical genre from the late 19th and 20th centuries.

♦ Studio visit of works by artists Alyssa Sakina Mumtaz and Murad Mumtaz in Studio B, above the Printshop Williamstown.
