Berkshire Creative SPARKS! at the Red Lion Inn

Fiona Breslin reports from Stockbridge.
Berkshire Creative’s SPARK! can be described as a night time networking event that feels more like the most perfect cocktail party. It is always hosted in a new and different divine atmosphere among the eclectic company of interesting and talented individuals with a charming and enthusiastic host (Berkshire Creative board chair Cathy Deely, left, pictured with gallerist Lauren Clark, underneath a wall of art deco, Vintage T.V. Lamps) there to greet you.  The Tuesday, February 26, SPARK!, was no exception. The always free event was hosted at the newly renovated Maple Glen house, at the Red Lion Inn and included hors d’oeuvres, an educational speed-speaker series from potter Daniel Bellow , G + R Consulting’s Michelle Gillett, and artist Ken Green of Museum Facsimiles. There was also the opportunity for guests to peek around the rooms and chat, which unfolded naturally as everyone from local writers, designers, business owners, and more were in the house to learn and participate in the event that aims to SPARK! community and collaboration among Berkshire creatives.
