L’Atelier Berkshires Joins The Art Community In GB
Lisa Green reports from Great Barrington. It will please many to learn that the jewelbox building on Main Street that formerly housed McTeigue and McClelland’s showroom has been inhabited by another artistic venture. Bronze and glass sculpturist Natalie Tyler has opened L’Atelier Berkshires, a contemporary art gallery and working sculpture studio in the iconic yellow house. On Saturday, Feb. 20, Tyler held an opening for Diapause, a mid-winter interactive art event, which features her installation of human-sized cocoons that create an environment of introspection through illumination. The cocoons brighten and dim in response to the movement of the viewers. Also exhibiting were works by artists John Ratajkowski, Sarah Logan and Eva Connell. Diapause will be on view through March. Above, Wayne Eline and Mary Jane Eline, owners of Les Trois Emme Winery in New Marlborough, Mass., flank galleriest Natalie Tyler and Barnbrook Realty owner Mary White.
