Goin’ to Town: Townscape Valentine’s Party at Gilmor Glass

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Fiona Breslin reports from Millerton.
Millerton’s Townscape Valentine’s Day Party had a special, grateful air; a grouping of the town’s lovers eager to finally get out on a Saturday night (February 9) post Nemo. The evening was, pardon the pun, chill, with everyone relaxing with a glass of wine. The cause, however, was grand: in support of the civic-minded organization Townscape (the beautification group that has volunteered to do everything from plant more trees on Main Street to fighting for state and national recognition of Millerton as a historic district). The party was hosted in the factory space at Gilmor Glass; work equipment was everywhere, as was bright red and blue colored glass by Dean Smiley, which contrasted brilliantly against the results of the blizzard outdoors. Given the improvised workshop environment, the night evoked a downtown artist’s loft gathering kind of mood. Live music, dinner, and friendly chatting also contributed to the arty vibe. Guests included Gilmor Glass owner John Gilmor, The Moviehouse’s Carol Sadlon, and Berkshire Taconic’s Jennifer Dowley (all pictured above).
