Daymark
Friday June 15
8pm $15

Daymark is an international trio performing traditional Irish music infused with infectious energy, raw power, and Northern swagger. Fusing the talents of Will Woodson (flute, uilleann pipes), Dan Foster (fiddle) and Eric McDonald (guitar, vocals) the group presents a classic blend of wind and string as driving flute meets virtuosic fiddle, underpinned by well-considered and expertly delivered guitar.

 


As the days are getting warmer you can be a cool cat in the trees at Catamount. If you are looking for an awesome time with your dad Fathers Day weekend you definitely want him to look cool at Catamount while soaring on zip lines or crossing aerial bridges high up in the trees. Located on Route 23 in South Egremont, Catamount is offering a FREE aerial park ticket to dads on Father's Day weekend, June 16th and 17th, when a full price son or daughter park ticket is purchased. Reservations are not required and registration begins at 9:30am. Visit   www.CatamountTrees.com for more 
information and to complete your participant waiver forms in advance.

 






Chesterwood Collaborates
with IS183 Art School


Painting Early Summer Blooms  and 
Summer Plein-Air Painting


PAINTING EARLY SUMMER BLOOMS

Gardens are blooming! The wonders of flowers offer terrific subject matter for the painter of all levels. In this workshop, we will paint on site in Chesterwood's gardens and capture our own interpretations of flowers, using both representational and abstract approaches. Our focus will be on using color and shading to capture the essence of flowers through light, shapes, and texture. No experience necessary, though we encourage you to select only one medium with which to work- acrylic, watercolor, or oil.

Saturday and Sunday, June 16th and 17th, 10am - 4pm 
weekend workshop with Wednesday Nelena Sorokin


 








EVENTS BEGIN AT 9AM






FATHER'S DAY @ THE CLARK
SUNDAY, JUNE 17, 1-4 PM



The Clark invites you to spend quality time in our galleries during an afternoon of close-looking and Father's Day art-making. Spark conversation with the help of a special Father's Day gallery guide, and make a special nineteenth-century style Medal of Honor inspired by the museum's newest addition, Portrait of Achille Deban de Laborde. While you're here, pick up a picnic meal from Café 7 and enjoy lunch while you relax by the reflecting pools or explore our hiking trails.
