It’s summer in the Berkshires, and after a year of isolation, crisis and uncertainty, all are looking forward to what new opportunities for connection and celebration summer 2021 will bring. Those in the art world who made it through closures and Covid protocols have had no time to spare patting themselves on the back nor reveling in their hard work and good fortune. Instead they’ve been busy curating, creating and organizing shows for all of us art-lovers to enjoy. For those overwhelmed with this newfound freedom to enjoy local and distant art scenes once more, it may be wise to plan ahead. Of course, when visiting an exhibition or performance one must leave room for spontaneity — what is art without a little chaos — but there’s no better way to invoke serendipity than to choose a few destinations and see what happens when you get there.
