BOLTON LANDING - Major artists for the past two centuries have toted pencils, charcoal, sketch pads, brushes, paints, palettes and easels up steep trails to hillsides overlooking Lake George at Bolton Landing. A string of small islands stretch like the gems of a necklace, offering a dramatic contrast to the panoramic vistas of the 32-mile-long "Queen of American Lakes." The inspiring setting fired the artists' creative imaginations as they rendered Lake George's sublime landscapes of water, forests, mountains and sky in styles that ranged from Romanticism to Abstract to Surrealism. One of the earliest landscapes is Henry Warren's 1817 painting of Bolton Landing as seen from Federal Hill, a western shoreline view depicting Sawmill Bay, Green Island and the Recluse Islands in an idealized, Romantic style. Warren's Lake George landscape predated Thomas Cole's founding of the Hudson River School by eight years and there are parallels with Cole's aesthetic. Cole also ventured to the North Country and painted the Lake George landscape, along with a long parade of famous painters. These and other surprising elements can be found in a new art exhibit, "Landscapes Lost and Found: Two Cen-

turies of Art from Bolton Landing," at the Bolton Historical Museum. It features more than 50 works of art from 19th-century painters to contemporary sculptors who found their inspiration in this picturesque Lake George setting. It is the museum's most ambitious undertaking and is on view through Columbus Day. "Each artist responded to the landscape in a different way and you can observe the major American art movements through these paintings of Lake George," said art collector Bernie Brown, who helped curate the show with his wife, Jeanne Brown, a museum trustee, and Lisa Hall, vice president of the museum. "The 19th-century artists considered Lake George's forests and mountains to be of transcendent beauty and painted them with a spiritual intensity," said Brown, a scholar of religious movements who has taught a course on the subject for two decades at Maria College in Albany. "This was a labor of love. It is a great source of pride for Bolton and the region and showcases our history through the artists who lived and worked here for more than two centuries," said Ron Conover, supervisor of the Town of Bolton, who provided financial support for the exhibit. The show fills a new wing completed in 2016 that has the feel of being inside a wooden hull of an Adirondack guide boat. The museum is housed in the former Church of the Blessed Sacrament, built in 1890. Glass walls of the gallery frame striking views of Lake George -- a few Please see GRONDAHL 12

Schumer backs Grant Cottage funds Senator urges landmark designation that would make site eligible for federal grants ByLINE: WENDY LIBERATORE
MOREAU - Grant Cottage, a state historic site that has been eking out an existence on memberships and admissions, could now have a chance to win federal grant money. On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York visited the bungalow where President Ulysses S. Grant spent his final days to announce
his push to designate the site as a national historic landmark. “This is part of American history,” Schumer said. “I’ve never seen a historic site with so many of the original artifacts. The chair Grant used, the bed he died in, all of that. They have done a great job. I believe the Grant’s Cottage deserves to become a national historic landmark.” The designation will allow the state historic site to apply for millions in federal grants that become available each year. Schumer said it will take time, but feels confident he can get it done. Please see COTTAGE 13

Tuition rising at UAlbany, SUNY For state residents heading to local campus, cost for school year will rise to $10,176 ByLINE: RICK KARLIN
ALBANY - Tuition and fees at the University at Albany will rise $420 this coming school year for New York state residents, bringing the cost from $9,756 to $10,176. That’s part of a tuition increase for all of the State University of New York’s fouryear campuses approved Thursday by the Board of Trustees. The tuition increases alone are going from $6,870 to $7,070 per year. The state legislature in 2017 allowed annual tuition hikes of up to $200 and the SUNY trustees have been raising them to that maximum each year.

They say it’s better to put in annual predictable increases than, as they have in prior years, gone for a long time with no increases, which necessitated large jumps of well over $200. As one of four SUNY research universities, UAlbany is also increasing its “Academic Excellence Fee,” by $150 from $375 to $525. That helps support master’s and doctoral students, but is paid by all with the thinking that all students at UAlbany are benefiting from the opportunities of attending a major university with a full plate of research as well as graduate programs. SUNY’s Binghamton, Stony Brook and Buffalo campuses are also research universities. Please see TUITION 14

Books For Troops Asks You To “Adopt-A-Box” CAPITAL DISTRICT - Books for Troops is holding a fundraiser called “Adopt-a-Box.” Held between our two most patriotic holidays, Memorial Day, (held this year on May 27th) and the 4th of July. In 2017 “Adopt a Box” was able to raise within a month’s time enough money to mail 165 boxes, although our goal had been only 100 within that 30 day period. To those unfamiliar with the term, coined by one of our original volunteers, “Adopt-a- Box” means to pay the postage of $15 to mail a box filled with books and other reading material to the deployed troops anywhere in the world or to 31 VA hospitals in the states or the one in Landstuhl Germany. Our goal this year is to have 150 boxes “adopted” within a 42 day period. In order to Adopt-Box, you simply make out a check to Books for Troops and mail it to: Books for Troops, 152 Oak Brook Commons, Clifton Park, NY 12065. We ask
you to write on the memo of your check the words adopt-a-box so that your donation will we recorded as part of our fundraiser. If you want to adopt more than one box at $15 a box, they, too, will be counted in the numbers. On July 5th we will record on Facebook the number of boxes that were adopted. What a patriotic way to celebrate our nation’s independence than to remember those who are sacrificing so much to preserve it? As always, thank you for supporting our troops and Books for Troops, now in its 10th year. - Ellen Keegan and Books for Troops Volunteers

All spring long we’ve had to mow our lawns at least once a week to keep up with its rapid growth. Like most of you, I’ve been mowing it low to try and gain some time between mowing. When the heat and dryness of summer arrive, we need to adjust our attitude and our mowing height. To help your lawn survive dry summer weather let it get taller…as tall as your lawn mower will adjust…4” Stop the low mow during the hot summer weather. to 5”. If you continue with the low mow, the sun will heat the soil to temperatures that will kill the roots of your grass. A lawn left long shades the soil. You may like the look of a shorter lawn, but if the soil temperature goes above 85° to 90° for three consecutive days, the root system dies. Once that happens, you’re looking at a lot of grass seed and a lot of watering in late summer and early fall to repair the lawn Raise your mower blade to its There comes a time when you just must water. highest setting. Traditional wisdom tells us that, for a lawn to remain healthy, it needs an inch of water a week. What you need to know, though, is that the lawn needs that inch of water all at once to get any real benefit from it. Water your lawn heavily then not at all for a week. With a limited amount of water available to most of us, we try and move the An inch of water once a week. sprinkler around the yard to make sure that we get the whole lawn watered at one time without any regard to whether it is getting enough water for more than temporary relief. If you have watering restrictions that only allow you to water every other day for two hours, let your lawn sprinkler soak one area for the full two hours. When your next watering opportunity arrives, move the lawn sprinkler to the next section and soak it with at least an inch of water. Folks with underground sprinkling systems need to follow the same advice. Set them up to soak one zone each day with an inch of water then do a different zone the next day. By putting an inch of water on the lawn, you’ll be soaking the soil to a depth of 6”. Water at this depth in the soil will not evaporate quickly, and it’s where the roots of the grass are located so it can be absorbed. Quickly spraying the lawn might perk it up briefly but most of that moisture is lost to evaporation and can never penetrate deep into the soil to get to the roots. At this point folks will ask, “How long do I need to leave the sprinkler on to put on an inch of water?” Since we all have different lawn sprinklers and water pressure, I can’t answer that question. This is something we must all determine on our own. You simply need to take a small, empty tuna fish can and place it in the area you’re watering. Don’t shut it off until it is full. Make a mental note of how long it took, and you’ll always know how long your setup takes to put out an inch of water. That’s it. Water deeply then take a break for a week. Thanks for the read.

hundred yards away. The town of Bolton was incorporated in 1799, its five main brooks providing power for sawmills and grain mills. After forests were cut down, agriculture supplemented the growing lumber industry. With the advent of steamboat travel in 1817, Bolton's unsurpassed beauty became accessible to New York City residents who fled the metropolis for a North Country respite each summer. Luxury hotels were built to cater to the tourists and wealthy families constructed mansions along a stretch of Bolton's shoreline beginning in the 1890s that became

“LOST WAGES” w/Rick Rourke on Sax
known as Millionaires' Row. The timeless beauty of the landscape and the lake's pristine quality drew painters who considered Bolton the perfect spot for plein-air painting and a haven for the nonconformist lifestyle of artists. "Here come those bohemians again," was the response of Bolton old-timers to a confluence of free spirits who joined Lake George's burgeoning summer arts community beginning in the 1920s. There is a 1923 painting of Lake George by Wilhelmina Weber Furlong, a swirl of vivid color and bold brush strokes from the first female painter of the American Modernist movement. She was an influential artist in New York City and Paris in the early 1900s, where she exhibited in the Paris Salon and befriended Pablo Picasso, Paul Cezanne and others. Beginning in 1952, she settled at Golden Heart Farm on a hillside above Bolton Landing where she drew a coterie of experimental artists, including the sculptor David Smith and his first wife, Dorothy Dehner. The work and spirit of Smith, a longtime Bolton resident and one of the most important American artists of the 20th century, dominate the exhibit. He was best known for his large-scale geometric steel sculptures and assemblages in the American Abstract Expressionist tradition. He came to Bolton in the late-1920s and built an anvil and forge in his studio at the farm on the hill above Bolton Landing. He and Dehner relocated from New York City to Bolton permanently in 1940. They dubbed their property Tick Ridge Farm. He worked with prodigious energy each day in his studio and completed an estimated 700 sculptures in his career. He dotted his farm's fields with dozens of his sculptures that he lined up in rows, like mechanical crops. Smith wrote wryly in a 1945 sketchbook entry: "The sculpture produces an environment in which the beholder can take part, usually on about three levels - to like, to pretend to like, to truly like - any of the three reactions being considered good." Smith's daughters, Rebecca and Candida Smith, who still own the family farm in Bolton and serve as co-presidents of the David Smith Estate, loaned works for the exhibit, including never-before-exhibited landscapes that David Smith painted in the 1930s. "Most people don't think of David Smith as a painter and we're pleased to be able to exhibit these landscapes," Bernie Brown said. Rebecca Smith also exhibited some of her industrial sculptures, clearly influenced by her father. "We've been weekend interlopers in Bolton Landing for nearly 30 years and we wanted to give something back," said Brown, a partner in a Colonie accounting firm and an art dealer by avocation. He and his wife live in Ni-
skayuna and have a condo on Lake George. This was the couple's first collaboration, the result of two years of sourcing and planning the exhibit. "I volunteered Bernie for the job," said his wife of 35 years. "Well, we're still married," he said, in response to whether they would do it again.

COTTAGE CONTINUED FROM 3
“I have a lot of success with landmarks, most recently the Harriett Tubman Home in Cayuga County,” Schumer said. “We will do the same thing here.” Tim Welch, president of Grant Cottage’s friends group, said that grant money will help preserve and interpret the property. He said one of the main things that the site needs is a fire suppression system that would cost $60,000 to $100,000 because the road to the cottage is impassible during the winter months. “The road is horrible,” Welch said of the Mount McGregor road up to the cottage. “It’s a man killer and a plow killer.” He also said the site needs new electrical lines that National Grid has estimated would cost $750,000. Welch said they are looking to install solar panels and that the state is gathering estimates now. Meanwhile, he said, the site survives on about $65,000 a year. While the state takes care of maintenance, he said, it does not provide employees. He said his friends group pays for four part-time employees and that the site is lucky to have “historically passionate volunteers” to help. Schumer, who got a tour of the house and walked to the site’s overlook, from which Grant said he could see American history -- the French and Indian War at Fort Edward and the Revolutionary War at Saratoga.
“Of course, he knew about the Civil War,” Welch said. The site, which is open from May to October, sees about 7,500 visitors a year. During his final days, Grant, who was suffering from throat cancer, wrote his biography “Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant.” The book, site manager Ben Kemp said, was sold door-to-door by Civil War veterans and was a huge seller. Schumer said Ron Chernow’s book on Grant is also a worthwhile read and since its 2017 release, he expects interest in Grant Cottage will grow. “I had the good fortune to read the wonderful Chernow book about Grant, which is a brilliant book and does more to restore a person’s reputation in history than any book I ever read,” Schumer said. Schumer said Chernow’s book “makes what we are doing here all the more important.” firstname.lastname@example.org - 518-4545445 - @wendyliberatore
