2 Harris Street
After a two-plus-year hiatus from the stage, Bazaar Productions has taken up residence at The Foundry, a visual and performing arts center on Harris Street that local teaching artist Amy Brentano now owns and manages. Bazaar's signature project, The Berkshire Fringe Festival, will return in 2020. Amy is thrilled to be bringing a new arts venue to West Stockbridge. She expects a black box setup - seating no more than 99 - to be completed by July 1, 2019. The Foundry will also serve as host to music, comedy, spoken-word, educational and community events.

When customers approach Hoffman Pottery, they cannot stop smiling due to the overwhelming whimsy in the gardens! Elaine Hoffman enjoys making a variety of different kinds of pottery. She loves to throw on the potter’s wheel, which she finds wonderfully meditative. She also does hand building with slabs of clay and hand rolled coils - braided and woven to create asymmetrical works and pieces that are askew. Elaine has an appetite for color, and enjoys putting the same color next to different colors and observing how the color changes. Her showroom is a vibrant feast of hues.
