PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Art Gallery at Bagels Too, 166 North St., for the month of July, will be showing the most recent series of artworks by beloved and powerful Berkshire artist Anne Pasko of Lanesborough.

Last summer, Pasko was diagnosed with and told she had inoperable pancreatic cancer. After her immediate shock, disbelief and despair, her feelings drove her into her studio to experience, express, work through and, ultimately, emerge as herself with new depths from the life-altering digression she was now enmeshed in.

As her feelings surfaced, she created collages to make them visible, one by one, for herself, the people most closely surrounding her, others who have gone or are

In one scene of director/co-writer Roland Emmerich's "Independence Day: Resurgence," brainy scientist Julius Levinson, played by Judd Hirsch, berates his equally brainy scientist son, David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum), thusly: "So, it takes the end of the world for a son to visit his father?" It is but one of a long list of clichés the filmmaker surmises would attend a planet facing Armageddon at the hands of alien beings. Uh, well, more correctly, it's not at the hands of, but at the tentacles of, which of course is much scarier.

Skipping my usual diatribe and head-scratching inquiry as to why folks would want to see a film about our threatened

ADAMS, Mass. — The state's highest peak was revealed on Tuesday to be the location of a school of wizardry.

J.K. Rowling, author of the immensely popular "Harry Potter" series, released a short story on Tuesday on the history of Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at Pottermore.com.

The North American version of Hogwarts was founded by Isolt Sayre, an Irish woman of wizarding heritage, who fled to the New World on the

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The technique of paper quilling isn't a common one in the contemporary art world, but North Adams resident Lisa Nilsson embraced the antediluvian medium and elevated even beyond her contemporaries to her inventive and intricate — and almost obsessive — images that stretch the form to its limits.

Quilling is a hundreds-of-years-old paper craft that involves rolling strips of colored paper into formations to create images with a three-dimensional quality.

Nilsson had previously worked in the format of box assemblages, which allowed her to create in a variety of mediums and she was always on the lookout for something new to add. After becoming
