Art, Antiques, Food And More In Sharon

There really is a lot to do in Sharon on Labor Day weekend. 
Theo Coulombe is a photographic artist who will be offering his own art at 147 Main St. in a business called Standard Space. This is one of the two Greek Revival buildings standing sadly side by side for about the last 10 years, waiting for someone like Coulombe to come along and buy one of them, save it and put it to good use, living in it and having a business with class and charm.

Festival: 12th Annual Rock, Rattle And Drum Pow Wow

The 12th Annual Rock, Rattle and Drum Pow Wow will be held at the Great Barrington Fairgrounds Aug. 12 and 13, and Falls Village resident Sandy Rhoades couldn’t be more excited. In fact, the festivities will be part of his birthday celebration.
“There’s nothing I enjoy more than dancing on my birthday,” said Rhoades, who is about to turn 78.
