GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass.— The Housatonic Valley Art League (HVAL), one of the area's oldest and largest non-profit art organizations, is having its Members End-of-Year Art Show online from Nov. 15 through Jan. 3, 2021.
HVAL held its Juried Art show online back in July, and since the health concerns have not changed, the Members show can only be seen on HVAL's website www.hvart.org.
The artist members of the Housatonic Valley Art League mostly reside in the Berkshires, nearby New York State, and Connecticut, but because of the popularity of their shows, the membership has spread across America and even as far away as France. 73 recent original artworks, by 26 artists, are in the show including oils, acrylics, watercolors, photography, and mixed media..
The show is timed to capitalize on the holiday season as all the artwork is for sale.

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Lake Mansfield Task Force plan for a recreational pathway and other lake area improvements is coming to fruition.
"We hope everyone will take a look at the designs and help us work out the details," said Chris Rembold, assistant town manager and director of planning and community development. "In the meantime, the existing one-way road scenario will remain for the next year or two, or until we can get enough funding to construct the improvements."
The 25 percent design concept can be viewed at lakemansfieldgb.org. Anyone who reviews the plans is encouraged to complete a survey.
The Selectboard, in June 2019, voted to close Lake Mansfield Road to vehicle traffic between the boat launch and the beach area due to erosion and poor road condition alongside the lake. As a temporary measure, the Selectboard reduced this portion of the road to one lane, which is how it will remain until the full closure can be implemented.
