World Class Musicians in Orange and Sullivan Warwick The August 14 concert at Pacem in Terris in Warwick features oboist Karen Hosmer and harpsichordist Gregory Hayes in works by Bach, Handel, Telemann, Ligeti, Robert Fleming and others. It is a tribute to oboist, musicologist, and publisher Josef Marx, who was an important presence in the early years of concerts at Pacem in Terris prior to his death in 1978. Marx was also an important presence in the New York City new music community, as a publisher, recitalist, and member of the Group for Contemporary Music. On August 28 guitarist Scott Jackson Wiley performs music by Villa-Lobos (photo) from The Compete Published Works for Solo Guitar. Both concerts are at 5:00pm at 96 Covered Bridge Road in Warwick.

Destination.............................................................................. Gallery to Re-O Open with New Name

“Sunday in the Park with Jazz” by Mary Sealfon

After the Yellow Bird Gallery building was sold to the architectural firm CS Arch, the exhibit area was not used except for special community events and for the Downing Film Center which is located a few steps down from the gallery space. On September 2 the gallery will re-open with the 48th Annual Exhibit of the Orange County Art Federation (OCAF).

Established in 1963, the OCAF is a notfor-profit volunteer based organization whose mission is to promote the active association of practicing artists, art students, supporters of art and to heighten the awareness of the role that art plays to enrich the local communities of Orange County. OCAF president Sarah McHugh has announced that the exhibit will be juried by Timothy John-Luke Smith. The new CS Arch Gallery is located at 10 Front Street and will be open to the public Monday thru Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm weekdays and on weekends when the Downing Film Center is open. The reception will be on September 10, from 6pm-9pm. For information, call 845-987-8748.

Synchronicity? The Downing Film Center and I

Some of the area's most talented outdoor painters will bring their paint boxes and easels to the Newburgh Campus of SUNY Orange on September 10, to participate in the 10th Annual worldwide "paint-out" sponsored by the International Plein Air Painters (IPAP) and SUNY Orange. From 9:00am to 1:00pm, the public will be able to join in the fun by watching individual artists work, moving from painter to painter. This year's "Paint in Newburgh" plein air painting event is coordinated by adjunct art instructor and regional ambassador for IPAP, Linda Richichi, as well as Dr. Nicole Shea, Cultural Affairs Coordinator at the SUNY Newburgh Campus.

Event organizer Richichi says, "There is a joy about paintings outdoors, and this is a chance for people to see professional artists at work, developing their paintings in response to the beauty in nature." A drumming circle will take place from noon to 1:00pm where the participating artists are invited to show their day's work while they picnic on the green lawn behind the new Kaplan Hall on Grand Street. In case of rain, the event will be moved to September 11. IPAP, who has members residing throughout the world, is the blanket organization for individual plein air groups and was created for the sole purpose of advancing the execution and enjoyment of plein air painting without limitations of borders or regions. This event is happening simultaneously at international locations around the globe. You can learn more about the group and see some of the many events happening posted on the website at www.i-p-a-p.com.

Marist Artist At SUNY Orange thru August 11

Playwright , Mart Crowley

Bel Kaufman and Sholom Aleichem

by Barry Plaxen In addition to its regular features, Downing Film Center always has “special” showings. This month, two of the special films have relevance to my earlier life in high school and working in the theatre in NYC. From 1963 to 1970 I worked for a very prolific producer, Richard Barr, a coproducer of the off-Broadway smash hit play The Boys in the Band. I was the company manager, a front of the house job. Downing will be showing Making the Boys, a film about the making of the movie version - which by the way is one of those rare film adaptations of a play in which the entire original NY cast repeated their roles. - on August 7 & 8 at 7:30pm. The film recounts the rise, fall and redemption of the groundbreaking and controversial play. I will be participating in the Aug. 8 post-show discussion. (No autographs, please :-) One of my high school English teachers,

Bel (Up The Down Staircase) Kaufman, was the granddaughter of Sholom Aleichem. In reference to the fact that in the story of Tevye and his Daughters (Fiddler n the Roof), whenever marriage tradition was broken, everyone was happy. When Tevye and his wife followed tradition and would not let their daughter marry a Gentile Cossack, they were all miserable. At a celebration of her recent 100th birthday I asked Kaufman if her grandfather meant to say, that, if we follow traditions created by others, we will not be happy. With her lifted hand, she waved my question away and said, “my grandfather only wanted to make people laugh.” (Kaufman is still tangoing once a week.) Downing is showing the film Sholom Aleichem: “Laughter in the Darkness” from August 20 thru August 30. It is a riveting portrait of the great writer, telling the tale of this rebellious genius who created an entirely new literature. Reservations for both films are suggested. Phone: 845-561-3686.

Website Puts Artists ‘On the Map’

Zoom in on Orange County

Jonathan Talbot

by Tod Westlake If you're an artist living in the Hudson valley, or anywhere else for that matter, you should take a look at theartsmap.com. This website - which is the collaborative brainchild of Warwick artist Jonathan Talbot; and Rockport, MA, artist Robin Colodzin - provides detailed listings about artists, and arts-related activities, in approximately 90 different countries, including a high concentration here in the northeast. Talbot says that the site began as a simple way for the general public to locate artists' studios. But has since evolved into a database that includes approximately 7500 different "artists, galleries, museums, public art, arts organizations, art schools, art

services & supplies, and more," according to the website. "I realized that if someone were coming to Warwick, the odds of [him or her] finding my studio were minimal," Talbot says. "Now, I have a shingle outside my house that says 'Talbot Studios,' but that doesn't mean that [a person] is actually going to get here, right?" Talbot says that he knows from experience how hard it is for individuals interested in the arts to find good information on the arts community. The website, therefore, is filling a need that had apparently existed for many years. The advent of the internet now means that such information is much easier to compile and disseminate - with perhaps the strongest testimony coming from the fact that more than 7000 artists have signed up in the short time it has existed (the site was rolled-out just last year). What is perhaps most interesting about the website is its 'open source' nature. Put simply, each database entry is actually maintained by the artist, her or himself. While the website lacks the social networking aspects of popular internet

destinations such as Facebook or LinkedIn, there are definite similarities, in that it is the users, themselves, who ultimately create the community. Talbot says the site’s original concept has expanded since it was first brainstormed, and that it is quite eclectic when it comes to the variety of different types of artists listed. The map includes musicians, media artists, and even those in the literary arts. "At first we thought we would make a map that was just (visual) artists' studios," Talbot says. "But then we realized that if someone were coming to Warwick [for example] and they were interested in the arts, would they come to a map of just of studios, or would they like a map that dealt with all of the arts?"

World Premiere in Liberty

Rilla Askew & Paul Austin The Abusers

The Abused

WHO: Air Pirates Radio Theatre actors Brian Nieves (top) Alan Andrews, and Ian Murphy, (one and all, members of the Air Pirates Radio Theater repertory company) fully intend to “celebrate and abuse a dead playwright”, courtesy of King’s Theatre Company. Observing them do it is “not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders and/or people inclined to motion sickness”. HOW: By performing all of Shakespeare's plays in one hysterical, irreverent, fast-paced romp, by out Pythoning Monty, out-Simpsoning Homer, and out-Stooge-ing Curly, Larry & Moe, with Titus Andronicus as a cooking show, Othello as a rap song, all sixteen comedies rolled into one, the history played as a football game, and Hamlet-fast, faster and backwards. That's 37 plays in 97 minutes! A brazen blend of the best of the brilliant Bard with the bottom of the absurdity barrel, is this farcical feast of inspired lunacy directed by Paul Ellis.

Knowledge of Shakespeare's works is helpful, but not at all necessary. Get lucky and they may even do it backwards! WHERE: At Lycian’s fully enclosed venue On The Wharf Theatre in Sugar Loaf on King’s Highway. WHEN: The show is scheduled for August 12 through 21. Call the Lycian Centre Box Office at 845-469-2287.

August 2011

The Liberty Free Theatre is presenting the world premiere of Strange Business, a new play by award-winning novelist and playwright, Rilla Askew, through Sunday, August 7. The play was adapted for the stage by the author from the title story in her short story collection. Author Rilla Askew and Artistic Director and founder of The Liberty Free Theatre, Paul Austin, are featured in the cast. Alexis Siroc designed the set, Jon Jon Thomas designed the lights, Daniel Ramos is the stage manager. Mr. Austin directed. The play examines the difficulties of facing old age and mortality in the hardscrabble life of small, rural towns with humor, sorrow and compassion. Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm with Sunday matinees at 3:00pm. Admission is free. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. The audience is invited to gather after the performance for food, drink, and music. The theatre is located at 109 South Main Street, Liberty. Call 845 292-3788 for reservations and information.

It should be noted, however, that the map is in no way comprehensive when it comes to the artists' listings, as individual artists must themselves sign up. Talbot says that he receives occasional emails from people who asked to be added, not realizing that they themselves have control over placing the listing. Needless to say, Talbot is encouraging artists who happen to read this article to please sign up if they're interested in experiencing this powerful networking tool. There is no cost to join. Please visit www.theartsmap.com to sign up. The site can also be followed on Facebook and Twitter.


Destination.............................Walden..................................... ..............................Meet David C. Lustig, Author.......................... Two months shy of the calamitous events that turned the world inside out and upside down, the Walden High School, Walden, NY graduated an exceptional class, the class of 1939. As was expected, hot humid days accompanied by refreshing summer thunder storms hugged the Shawangunk Ridge before bringing relief to the Wallkill Valley below. Walden, a river town in the Valley was similar to others of like composition and size but also very different. It was a place where children walked to the schoolhouse in the mornings and frequently would engage in such misadventures as placing a Lincoln penny on a railroad track. Retrieving a misshapen, distorted Abe after school was part of the game. This village, the largest in the Town of Montgomery, is where memoirist, David C. Lustig, Jr., once an annoying and persistent wise-ass child, became a man. Fortunately, for us mortals, David is gifted with an acute memory and the learned skills of a seasoned writer. Communication skills he appropriately attributes to his high school English teacher, Miss Theda Gillespie, a much feared "ogre" and "... probably the best darned high school English teacher a diffident young high school student could ever have

David C. Lustig, Jr.

had," relates David fondly. Currently the library at the Valley Central High School is named in the memory of the notorious Miss Theda S. Gillespie. If this writer were in charge of anything other than a keyboard, the four paragraph chapter memorializing Miss Gillespie would be required reading for all who entered. His personal memories and anecdotes of the days preceding World War II are priceless

and are preserved for posterity in his just published Capers and Cameos. The words printed here are not intended to be a review or critique of the book, but instead the intention is to offer a glimpse of the man, David C. Lustig, Jr. It is so remarkable and so fortunate that he is one who possesses the skills necessary to transport a reader into the world of his youth. Although the time is removed, the qualities of human nature remain. The human qualities of love, passion and humor, tempered with a sprinkling and sometimes a torrent of reality existed in all towns and villages that had a railroad, a school house, and children who went to war. Characters of Dave's book could easily have lived in Middletown, Port Jervis, Altoona or all the way to Homer's Ithaca in California. To spend any amount of quality time with author David C. Lustig, Jr. is a treat to be savored. He is a man who justifiably recognizes his abilities as a communicator. As an aside, worthy authors, such as David, must exhibit those skills with a justifiable sense of one's worth. They are the truth tellers and the truth is needed. Fortunately, feedback has let it be known that his written recollections are not only humorous and poignant but a serious part of antidotal history.

His instinct is to share crisp recollections of events and individuals that for others may have faded or totally vanished. What he has come to realize is a personal history of an American town told with honesty and dignity. David is a free-thinking historian with an appropriate disregard for the "political correctness" that has infected and distorted the integrity of contemporary exposition and narrative. David Lustig's Caper and Cameos is a first person narrative, in the genre creative non-fiction. It's a celebration of the human spirit and when the dust is swept clean, reflection and innuendo will reveal what was identified by a different author at an earlier time: The characteristics that allow mere mortals to assume historical significance remain The Human Comedy. The Historical Society of Walden and the Wallkill Valley will sponsor a booksigning and sale on Wednesday evening August 17 at the Jacob T. Walden House, 34 North Montgomery St., in Walden. The event will begin at 7:30pm and David C. Lustig will be available to discuss and sign his awaited Capers and Cameos. A generous portion of the proceeds from the sale (one-third) will be donated to the Historical Society. Refreshments will be served.

It was here, through the efforts of the Immigration Naturalization Services (INS) he became John Spanos, American (1908-2001). His origin: Karavas, Cyprus, at the time, one of the Greek Isles. His destination: Walden, NY. The new American brought with him a demanding work ethic, an enviable entrepreneurial spirit and an overwhelming respect for the value of an American education. John Spanos was already a trained and skilled tailor and an accomplished cook. While working in New York City and living in New Jersey, a new phase of John's American experience began in the spring of 1942 when he received an invitation from his newly acquired uncle, Uncle Sam. As the war raged through Europe and across the Pacific, John Spanos was drafted into the U.S. Army. Before he knew it, he was headed back to Europe with the Third Army to join a one time Orange County, NY college student in the race across central France and to be a participant in one of the war's most notorious battles. The battle: The Battle of the Bulge, December 1944. The Orange County college student: George S. Patton, USMA

Savos & Spanos 1948

at West Point, class of '09. With the war behind him, John Spanos was destined for Walden, NY with his wife Katina. As fate would dictate, John had a classmate, John Savas who was from his village in Cyprus, Karavas, and owned two clothing/tailoring businesses, one in Newburgh and one in Walden. Although the Walden enterprise was not as profitable, John was quick to recognize its potential and immediately bought the business. John's LTD, Quality & Clothiers & Tailors quickly became an integral part of Walden's multiethnic business community.

August 2011

Clothing, styles and work ethics have changed since John Spanos first greeted the public on Walden's Main Street. Fortunately, John's Clothiers & Tailors remains a vibrant part of the community, as it is now in the diligent hands of Christos, John and Katina's son. Christos, a graduate of the State University of New York at Albany, is one who keeps abreast of trends and the techniques of successful marketing. Initially targeting the local business man and a dress-for-business clientele, the sales approached has been modified to accommodate a more casual business attitude and style. Current trends represent a casual acceptance of semi-work clothes, once reserved for those who literally labor, and has gained acceptance as a dominant portion of the market. It is not unusual, today to observe a working business person attired in freshly pressed Levis and a seventy dollar Carhartt shirt! As mentioned earlier John Spanos was a great believer in the American system of education. He and wife, Katina, helped to support the local scholarship organization (Valley Central Scholarship Council) with a specific night called John's Night or Valley Central Scholarship Night. Key to that special offering, 10% of the gross sales was donated to the scholarship council. In those days the Vally Cecntral community, through the efforts of council members, was proud to offer in excess of $20,000 in scholarship

funds to the graduates of the Valley Central High School. Civic minded residents flocked to "John's Night," not only for the fine quality of clothing and the opportunity to contribute to the scholarship fund, but to get a taste of fine Greek delicacies e.g., grape leaves stuffed with ground meats and Mediterranean spices and a special pastry made with filo, nuts and honey meticulously prepared by Mrs. Spanos. The unstated, implied watchword of Goannis Spauoulos: What a wonderful country. What a wonderful Walden.

“Narcoonah”

Water to Flow Through ARTery’s Veins

watercolor by Linda Barboni “Shohola Falls” by Marie Liu

Milford’s ARTery Gallery’s a new exhibit in August is titled Fluid By Nature. The natural fluidity of water creates everchanging motion, still one moment, turbulent the next; quiet on the surface, yet with activity below. Marie Liu and Linda Barboni have attempted to express in oil, watercolor and pastel, the dynamic properties of water, both as a medium and as a subject. Marie will be exhibiting a new series of

paintings inspired by the numerous creeks and waterfalls in Pike County. “This landscape has a magical and powerful quality which I find very inspiring. That and the vast state and federal lands that are accessible to the public, make this a great place for me and I’m creating my best work here.” Linda will be showing watercolor and pastel paintings that feature scenes of the Hudson River valley, from the Bashakill Preserve to the Hudson River and

Homestead “Home” to River Valley Artists Guild Cover:Photo: “Sergeant” by Dani Cooley

Manhattan skyline. Someone once asked her, "When you paint, what are you thinking?" "I realized it's what I'm feeling that propels and transports me." Barboni's loose painting style lends itself easily to all things natural, especially bodies of water. Whether tranquil or dramatic, her characteristically loose, fresh style of ‘wet in wet ’ watercolor paintings are a result of her sensitivity to the loose-flowing pigment moving within the water. Her latest work incorporates pastel onto the watercolor painting. The exhibit runs from August 11 thru September 13. The reception is during Milford's Art After Dark event, August 13, 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Gallery hours are Thursdays thru Saturdays from 11:00am to 6:00pm and Mondays from 11:00am to 3:00pm. 570 409-1234. arteryonline.com.

"Narcoonah" means seeing or to see differently in an Australian Aboriginal language. Narcoonah is a two person show featuring the work of Joni Wehrli and Dana Duke. Joni Wehrli's drawings, from the Different Anatomy series, were executed over three consecutive summers in Livingston Manor. They are composed of cut sections of gouache and watercolors, and take off from illustrations in medical textbooks as a way of capturing the vitality of the body's organs and their liberation from their normal context. Dana Duke's paintings were created, then the reflections in the water of those paintings were photographed to heighten the abstract possibilities and color juxtapositions. The exhibit runs though August 28 at the Catskill Art Society in Livingston Manor. Phone: 845- 436-4227.


Nine Photographers at Old Stone House

Wakefield Exhibit ends August 5

“Figuration” by Steve Dansky “Potted Cat” by Garrett-Waldmeyer

An extraordinary array of images “to Amaze and Delight” from some of the country’s top photographers will be on display starting August 7 at the Old Stone House in Hasbrouck. The photo exhibit, titled Our Worlds in Focus, includes the work of nine professionals in photography, film-making, animation and related fields. Their images span the gamut of what a camera can produce. Some demonstrate acute realism. Others result from digitized enhancement, or unusual camera techniques that blur and blend the main subject. Some photos confound the sense of color, or subtly alter common shapes to hide their origins. An opening reception is set for 1:00pm-

4:00pm on August 7. After that, the Old Stone House, will maintain regular Sunday hours, 2:00pm to 4:00pm, through August 28th. Photographers are Michael Arisohn, LaVerne Black, Steven F. Dansky, Michal Heron, Louis Jawitz, Miriam Rayevsky, Jesse James Wall, and GarrettWaldmeyer (Ursula Waldmeyer and Robert Garrett). The Old Stone House is located by the Neversink River, 282 Hasbrouck Road in Hasbrouck, a short distance from the Route 55 Neversink reservoir, with a Woodbourne zip code, NY 12788.

Harriet Finck “Returns” to Orange County

“Train with Hotel ”

“Coal Boats to Tidewater”

The Artwork of artist-educator-historian Manville B. Wakefield, is currently on view at The Time and the Valleys Museum in Grahamsville. "Wake" came to Sullivan County in 1953 when he took the position of art instructor at the Tri-Valley School. Before his arrival he was well known for his black and white illustrations of trains, which appeared on covers of several train magazines and in books by Lucius Beebe. His love of trains took him one step further into model railroading, where his art became three dimensional. In 1953, Wakefield started painting in oil and continued until his death in 1974 at the

age of 50. In twenty short years he produced a legacy of art through outstanding murals at Sullivan County Community College and the M&T Bank in Liberty, books on the O&W Railroad and the Delaware and Hudson Canal, several slide shows on local history and over 200 paintings. During that time, he continued to inspire students in Grahamsville and moved on to head the Commercial Art Program at Sullivan County Community College as well as becoming Sullivan County Historian. Wakefield had proven skill at watercolors, scratchboards, ink wash, etching, woodcuts and oil painting. A large sample of those skills are in the exhibition which runs through August 5th. The museum is located at 332 Main Street in Grahamsville. Phone:845 985-7700.

Harriet Finck explains, “I lived in Orange County for many years until I moved to New Jersey eleven years ago. We still have a cabin on Round Lake outside of Monroe. I had also shown at the UUC back then and the new curator Peggy Landrum contacted me to see what I was up to.” Based on Hebrew letters and Jewish themes (mostly biblical), her new work on paper is large, bold and colorful. “My work is often a quote from Hebrew text. My motifs are usually from deep nature - from either micro or macro nature. I am interested in the way shells work and the way the stars work.” Her exhibit at the Universalist Unitarian Meeting House, 9 Vance Road off of Route 207, a few miles from Route 747 (Drury Lane) in Rock Tavern, runs through August 30. Open on Sundays, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm or by appointment. 917-613-3489.

Holistic Living About Crystals by Cephora Crystal Skulls About Crystals is written by Cephora from Crystal Connection in Wurtsboro

The crystal skulls are a mystery as profound as the Pyramids of Egypt, the Nazca Lines of Peru, or Stonehenge. Many indigenous people speak of their remarkable magical and healing properties, but nobody really knows where they came from or what they were used for. According to a Mayan legend, once one of the most advanced cultures of the ancient world, when mankind is at the brink of destroying itself and the planet, thirteen Crystal Skulls will come together with the purpose of giving humanity an ancient message to prevent humanity from annihilating itself and the world. It is no coincidence then that another Ancient Crystal Skull has recently surfaced. This Skull is from Mexico and is considered to be at least 2,500 years old.

Challenge and Change by Chief Joseph

We have said this so many times, but it always bears repeating. You create your own realities. It is particularly important for you to acknowledge and accept that fact. Especially during these challenging, changing times on your planet. Challenge and change are not "bad" things, even though many of you consider them undesirable, to say the least. When you're faced with challenges and changes, it's a positive sign you are growing and evolving as you intended when you incarnated. In fact, you cannot NOT grow Come and make your own decision.

You are in the final stages of the old paradigm, the old ways that served you well for a time, but no longer do. This is the time to reclaim your power. You are God. You are divine. Each of you possesses all the power that goes along with being God. It's that simple. It's time to take full responsibility for your lives. It's time to be your own creators and to own all of your creations, "good" and "bad". Of course there are no good or bad creations. There is only experience. Your higher selves see nothing in you or your lives as good or bad. All your higher selves care about is your experiences as conscious creators. Your higher selves do not care about anything else. However, they are not uncaring, for they love you totally and unconditionally. They applaud your courage in facing all the changes you are all experiencing right now. They want you to see yourselves as powerful as they see you. It's time to quit blaming -- blaming your past, your mistakes, your parents, your teachers, your governments, the economy, swine flu, etc. etc. ad nauseam. You are in control! As God, you create every part of your earthly experiences. You are not victims. You are God. http://www.greatwesternpublishing.org/ar ticles/2009/050509.html.

“Mystic Whaler by the Palisades” Oil painting by Mike Jaroszko

Fresh paintings by Orange County artists Mike Jaroszko and photos by Cornwall photographer Tom Doyle, with emerging artist Marguerite Violente, are on display at the Wallkill River School and Art Gallery (WRS) for the month of August. Mike Jaroszko is a Montgomery-based oil painter and illustrator. His paintings grace the pages of many magazines like Cricket and publications by Scholastic, as well as other national and international venues. His artwork is reminiscent of the Hudson River School, with high realism, luminist light and lush landscapes. He also teaches luminist oil painting classes at the Wallkill River School in Montgomery. Tom Doyle learned to love photography while spending thirty- odd years ago while assigned to the NYPD Intelligence Division. Doyle was assigned to do surveillance photography, during which he learned the technical aspect of the craft. Landscape photography became a full time pursuit after retirement. It was soon

apparent that while technical competence was essential, there was much more to landscape photography. Simply put, this new craft required some understanding of ambient light and graphic composition. He has since been pursuing the aesthetic side of landscape photography for ten years. Doyle says; “Most of the time, scenic photography involves waiting - waiting for the light - the sun - the clouds - the moon - the tide That said, it is an incredibly rewarding way to spend time.” Marguerite Violante grew up in Ohio with nine brothers and sisters. She received a B. S. in Education from Youngstown State

University, Ohio, and earned a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from SUNY New Paltz, Summa Cum Laude. After a 34-year profession of teaching, Marguerite pursued her love of painting. Besides studying under Louise McCutcheon, George Hayes, and Marge Morales at the Wallkill River School, Marguerite has also painted under the direction of Carol Galietta in New Windsor. As a member of the Ulster County Vicariate Choir, and the St. Patrick’s Cathedral Choir in New York City, Marguerite has sung for Blessed John Paul VI, and Pope Benedict XVI on the occasion of their visits to New York. Marguerite has also traveled to Rome to sing several times at St. Peter’s Basilica in the presence of Pope Benedict XVI. A reception will be held on August 6, 5:00pm-7:00pm, which is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 9am-6pm, Tues.-Sun, at the Wallkill River School located at 232 Ward St. (same as 17K) in Montgomery. The Wallkill River School is a nonprofit artist’s cooperative that runs an art gallery and a full-service art school in Montgomery, NY. The WRS promotes local artists and integrates art into the people’s daily lives. Part of the organization’s mission is to preserve dwindling open spaces and promote small scale farms and our

agricultural heritage. The WRS published a local foods cookbook based on what our farms grow, in season, and where to find them. The WRS offers plein air workshops on location throughout Orange County from May-Oct, and year-round art classes in the Montgomery gallery. The WRS is committed to buying local, and all our events strive to be zero waste, handicappedaccessible, and carbon neutral.

Walden Secrets Unveiled in Montgomery! Lisa Melville has revealed secrets of Walden in her book The Grace Murder Case. Set in the Hudson Valley of 1912, this unique look at a salacious historical murder offers a fascinating snapshot of a village's past and chronicles one of the most infamous crimes. Murder was a rare occurrence in the small village of Walden, and the Grace case was scandalous, involving sex, bigamy, robbery, lies and a violent murder which rocked the small riverside community. Melville grew up in the village and is also a local historian who completed her Master’s degree in Public History. She will sign books at the Wallkill River School on Sunday August 14, from 3:00pm until 5:00pm.

Destination................................................................................... Green is the Color of My True Love’s Village The three villages of the Town of Montgomery: Montgomery, Maybrook and Walden, have united in support of a Save Energy Movement. It is a growing grass roots campaign that includes 12 local governments representing nearly 90 thousand individuals. It is called the 10% challenge and is represented by a green colored foot print. Efforts will include a pledge by individual households to reduce energy use by 10% or more in the next year and to recruit 10 % of friends and acquaintances from the community to join together and answer the challenge. Kick off days will coincide with the major late summer early fall events in the villages: Montgomery Day, Maybrook Day and Walden's Harvestfest. Information will be made available at these events to explain in greater detail the advantages of group actions and a community plan. Households will be asked to sign a pledge card indicating their commitment to the reduction of energy consumption. Strategies include submitting to a home energy audit, abandoning incandescent lighting, the promotion of water efficiency

The first engine-powered farm tractors used steam and were introduced in 1868. These engines were built as small road locomotives and were operated by one man if the engine weighed less than 5 tons. There are now tractor museums all over the US and Canada. Today you can drive a tractor without any gas. Go to tractorgames.online.com. You can load your tractor with cargo and deliver the goods, drive the bulldozer, control the blades, and choose from one of the 5 tractors and go racing on 20 different tracks.

With the "economic downturn," "slow down," "quasi depression" or a variety of miscellaneous and other unprintable descriptors, it is refreshing to see two new businesses opening in the Village of Montgomery. "Buy Local" is a concept worthy of residents in all areas served by this publication. It affects the quality of life and the environment that surrounds local businesses. The Café Internet, a creation of Krista Wild of Montgomery, is brand new, located on Union Street in the Village. It features free wire-less internet connection, freshly blended coffees from the Noble Coffee Roasters in Campbell Hall and locally created art work. Krista's pastries, of course, are always tempting. They're freshly baked and attractively presented for anticipated consumption.

Tea for Two is a new tea shop on Clinton Street directly facing the Montgomery Luncheonette. Although the proprietors were not available on premises for comment, it’s opening is anticipated with interest. Blended coffees, tempting pastries and various assortments of interesting teas, combined with local art, will increase what is advantageous to all small businesses in the Village of Montgomery: street traffic in the form of pedestrians. Individuals free to roam from store to bank, from restaurant to bakery or from shop to shop will only increase the benefits of downtown Montgomery's business environment.

August Strindberg Play Playing in August (at Playhouse) in First English Translation

Malin Tybahl

Laurence Carr

Malin Tybahl’s resume reads impressive! Actress, Theater Pedagogue, Drama Teacher, Energy Healer, Interfaith Minister, Swedish Instructor & Translator. Tybahl has joined forces with SUNY New Paltz English Instructor, Playwright and Author Laurence Carr for a most important world premiere play adaptation of August Strindberg’s Mr. Bengt’s Wife.

character is a young strong, spirited woman called Margit. She escapes the convent life and marries her hero Mr. Bengt, a knight and nobleman. “However, married life is not at all what Margit had expected and all her illusions come to an abrupt awakening when she finds out they are bankrupt. Her old childhood friend, the bailiff, comes to her comfort but everything is not what it seems. Margit is very much a modern woman of today, who even asks for a divorce from the King of Sweden.” In this play comparisons and answers to Ibsen’s A Doll's House can be seen, as well as certain elements of the absurdity that later comes to full bloom in Strindberg’s A Dream Play.” The world premiere will be at the Railroad Playhouse, directed by Artistic Director Seth Soloway, on August 26 with a pre-play discussion at 7:00pm and a staged reading at 8:00pm. The playhouse is located at 27 South Water Street in Newburgh. Phone: 845.565.3791 or rrplayhouse.org.

August Strindberg (1849-1912)

Written in 1882, this is the first time this romantic comedy in five acts has been translated into English. As Tybahl describes, “the play takes place during the Swedish reformation, when all convents were closing and the Church became Lutheran. The lead

Dada Ghosts to Appear in Book Store According to author/poet/educator William Seaton, the Dadaists originated much of the repertory of modernist technique. “They pioneered the artistic use of abstraction, fragmentation, collage, performance art, conceptual art, aleatory work, simultaneity, sound poems, objets trouvés, ethnological and popular culture, and even pranks, anticipating the most contemporary practice.” Seaton is presenting a program evoking the “ghost voices” of Dada poets of almost a hundred years, introducing the Dada scene

in Zurich through the words of participants and reading his translations of poets of this ultra-avant-garde movement. Seaton’s Dada Poems from the German, translations of four poets with essays and commentary, is forthcoming from Nirala, and his translations of Dada and German Expressionist poets have appeared earlier in Chelsea, Maintenant, Mad Blood, Read and Destroy, and the Adirondack Review. The readings will be at 7:00 p.m. on August 19 in Utopian Direction Books and Art, 7 West Street, in Warwick.

Broadway Musical Comes to New Windsor The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, comes to life in a musical parable of a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles by Broadway composer Andrew Lloyd Webber (Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar), from country-western and calypso, to bubblegum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. Joseph was first presented as a 15-minute pop cantata in London in 1968 and was recorded as a concept album in 1969. After the success of the next Lloyd Webber and Rice piece, Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph received stage productions beginning in 1970 and expanded recordings in 1971 and 1972. While still undergoing various

transformations and expansions, the musical was produced in the West End in 1973, and in its full format was recorded in 1974, but did not open on Broadway until 1982. This production stars local favorites Mary Ellen Nelligar as the Narrator, Nick Butler as the Pharaoh, Rich Hotaling, Jim Pillmeier, and introducing James Kastenblatt in the title role. A youth choir and performers from the Orange County area will complete the cast of 30. The show is directed and choreographed by Joyce A. Presutti, Executive Artistic Director of Just Off Broadway, Inc, . music director and conductor is Paul O. Davis with Hannah Blair Butler music directing the Youth Choir. Joseph is at Saint Joseph’s School Auditorium, August 4 thru 14, 148 Windsor Highway (Route 32 and Union Avenue), New Windsor. Tickets will be available at the door.

Bach’s English Suites come to Cornwall-o on-H Hudson

The English Suites (BWV 806–811) refer to a set of six suites written by Bach for harpsichord and generally thought to be the earliest of Bach's 18 suites for keyboard, the others being the French Suites (BWV 812–817) and the six Partitas (BWV 825–830). Originally, their date of composition was thought to have been between 1718 and 1720, but more recent research suggests that they are likely to have been composed earlier, around 1715, while the composer was living in Weimar. Bach was obliged to write a new cantata every week during his time at the Weimar court, and the English Suites he composed at this time express Bach's longing for new, instrumental music and therefore held a very special place in his life and work. Later in Köthen and Leipzig he worked on a full-time basis with professional orchestras, providing him an ideal context in which to create orchestral and purely instrumental compositions. Like the French Suites, the use of the

Once Again, The Farce is With Us in Ellenville

Charles Morey is the author of nine plays including adaptations of the 19th century classic novels, The Count of Monte Cristo, A Tale of Two Cities, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Dracula and The Three Musketeers. His original plays include Laughing Stock, Dumas’ Camille and The Yellow Leaf. His adaptations and original plays have gone on from their Pioneer Theatre Company premieres, in Utah, to successful productions at professional theatres across the country. His play The Ladies Man is freely translated and adapted from Tailleur Pour Dames by Georges Feydeau. For some theatre enthusiasts, farce begins with Feydeau. For the uninitiated, in theatre, a farce is a comedy which aims to entertain the audience by means of unlikely, extravagant, and improbable situations, disguise and mistaken identity, verbal humour of varying degrees of sophistication, which may include word play, and a fast-paced plot whose speed usually increases, culminating in an ending which often involves an elaborate chase scene. Farce is also characterized by physical 18

Delaware & Hudson CANVAS

August 2011

humor, the use of deliberate absurdity or nonsense, and broadly stylized performances. Some say Farce began with Chaucer and his 14th century Canterbury Tales. Others say farce began in Feydeau's country in the 13th century. Farce, in general, is highly tolerant of transgressive behavior and tends to depict human beings as vain, irrational, venal, infantile, neurotic and prone to automatic behavior. In that respect, farce is a natural companion of satire. Farce is, in fact, not merely a genre but a highly flexible dramatic mode that often occurs in combination with other forms, including romantic comedy. Following in the ‘door-slams’ and ‘blackouts’ of its recent side-splitting farcical productions of Noises Off, Black Comedy and Lend Me A Tenor, Shadowland Theatre in Ellenville is presenting The Ladies Man from August 19 thru September 11. It will be directed by Artistic Director, Brendan Burke. What’s more, unlike many farces, French or otherwise, this one is rated PG. For tickets: 845-647-5511.


..................................................Meet Larry Smiglewski, Director / Manager / Teacher All of my love All of my kissin' You don't know what you've been amissin'. Director Larry Smiglewski is an artist with communication on his mind. A native of New Jersey, graduate of Mary Mount Manhattan College in New York City and the University of Texas at Houston, Larry is intelligent, well-spoken and acutely aware of the communication barriers that exist in theatre. After all Larry is a professor of theatre at the West Chester University of Pennsylvania. And quite positively, he is able to perform with quality that which he teaches: Good Theatre. Larry's road to the theatre is highlighted by many factors, but dominant in his recollections is the influence of an "amazing" high school drama teacher, Miss Gray. Larry fondly recalls that it was she who "nurtured us." It was in a public high school populated with exceptional adolescents. One individual became a Miss America contestant and another played the lead in the road show Evita and of course, there's Larry Smiglewski. The opportunity to direct presented itself when Larry's off-campus acting commitment prevented his participation in

Todd Meredith (right) as Buddy Holly

the high school's play. Not wanting to miss anything theatrical, he asked Miss Gray for the opportunity to direct a one-act, written by the well-known dramatist Jerome McDonough and known to many as the Father of Young Adult Drama. The play was the frequently performed Alki. That was it! "It was years before I acted again," Larry exclaimed, as he modesty points out that he received an encore at his directing début. A major barrier in all theatre is the creation on stage of a controlled state of credibility. There's a sound tech, the lighting designer, the set designer, make-up artists, props and costumes, but the development and preparation of fictional

“Double Visions” in Executive Suite

characters lies in the hands of the director. The audience will know only what the director has gathered from the script and implemented through orchestration and subsequent presentation on stage. When the characters are vividly real and legendary, complications begin to multiply. Credibility is Larry Smigleswki's current assignment as director of the musical The Buddy Holly Story, a production of the Forestburgh Playhouse. This show is a musical that presents characters, settings, music and story familiar to a significant number of theatre-goers. They know what the characters looked like and what they sounded like. The legendary music of the late fifties has risen to near mythical status and remains a product of reality spiced gingerly with glorious fantasies. So many lived it, breathed it and slept with it. There are others who wished only that they had

paid attention. The audience will consist of adventurous souls whose vital quest includes a time machine designed to lift them gently into the glorious days of Richie Valens' folksy, spiced-up La Bamba, coupled with its flip side's soul searching lament Donna. And for those with flirty inclinations there remains the Big Bopper's "Chantilly lace and a pretty face; And a pony tail a-hangin' down." Larry's approach may appear simplistic at first glance as he employs the time-tested concept of "honesty." American legends Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper can be faithfully represented but never duplicated. Fortunately, through the process of casting and auditions Larry will be working with Todd Meredith an accomplished musician and actor, who has played the role of Buddy Holly in nine different productions. As a musician and central character Todd is a true leader and fully cognizant of the realities of theatrical presentation. To step aboard that time machine and relive or discover "what you've been a missin...," clap your hands and stomp your feet with Buddy Holly. The adventure, The Buddy Holly Story, is a credible and truthful theatrical presentation by Director Larry Smiglewski. Consider too Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the big Bopper? Real rock and roll?

“Every Day Monet” by Pat Mohr

The Executive Suite Gallery in the Orange County Government Center is hosting an exhibit showcasing the talent of Pat Mohr from Central Valley and Tom Spisany from New Windsor. The two artists are dedicated and inspiring local artists whose diverse works include still life, landscapes and portraits in an array of media including oil, pastel, watercolor and pen and ink. An inherent and shared passion for creativity and expression unites Mohr and Spisany, which is evident when viewing their artwork side by side. Both artists had an early love and appreciation for the unlimited beauty, obvious and obscure, in our midst. Another common thread between the two is that they were both teachers with a desire to impart their knowledge of various subjects. They currently work at Brotherhood Winery in Washingtonville. "The reservoir of artistic talent in Orange County is astounding. I'm honored and pleased to be able to showcase our local visual artists and provide an opportunity for the public to be inspired as they experience the work of these two fine artists," said County Executive Edward A. Diana. The show is located on the third floor at 255 Main Street in Goshen, and is open to the public during business hours. All are

“Artography” in Milford

“Dance of the Shawls” by Linda Bock-Hinger

To understand more about their current life and customs, Linda Bock-Hinger, a Bedminster, NJ photographer, attended the Gathering of Nations in Albuquerque and photographed Native Americans in tribal dress performing traditional dances and rituals. The "Great Chief" led several thousand Native Americans from all over North America in the Grand Entrance of the PowWow. Their attire, in bold colors, elaborate feathers and exquisite beadwork, was designed to tell their story. The architecture of our American Southwest owes its heritage to Native Americans, Mexicans, Spaniards, and influences from the early settlers who used whatever materials were at hand. The use of natural building materials and environmental orientation reflected the unique method of the Pueblo Indians. These qualities of Native American tribes

Times to Remember & Reflect in Middletown

inspired the Spanish settlers who entered the Southwest in the 16th century. Bock-Hinger went from photography as an avocation to a profession after her retirement in 2000 from a career in education. She has studied photography and art and now combines them into “artography”, which uses photographs as the cornerstone of her mixed media work. Currently both of her art forms may be seen and purchased in various solo and group art shows such as at the Highlands Photographic Guild, 224 Broad Street in Milford, from August 8-September 4.

“Life on the Erie” by Walter Bill Haskin’s Shop” by Robert H. Score

Watercolors of Times to Remember, paintings by Walter Bill and A Nostalgic, Pen & Ink Reflection, drawings by Robert Harry Score, two solo shows that complement each other, are on view in Orange Hall Gallery & Loft at SUNY Orange in Middletown thru September 15. The exhibits are free & open to the public.

UpFront Exhibit in Port Jervis Born in the United States, in 1958, Paul Thomas currently resides in NYC and Dingmans Ferry. His love of art started when he was a young man living in Paris and continues to this day. “My goal is to paint emotion, eternity, imagination while remaining close to the principles of abstract expressionism. The lack of identifiable objects and defined boundaries combined with multiple vales of color provide the paintings with a sense of depth and space that allows the viewer to establish what emotion each painting has to offer.” Thomas’ work (photo left) is part of an exhibit of over 25 artists at UpFront Exhibition Space, 31 Jersey Avenue in Port Jervis. Reception is August 20, 6:00pm9:00pm. Phone: 845-856-2727.

Walter Bill’s paintings hearken back to a bygone era. Several of the works depict Orange County buildings while many others are remembrances of his native New Jersey where he lived most of his life. The 64 works include street scenes, Victorian homes, churches, old farms, railroad stations and a boxcar-turned-house, plus a variety of other subjects. His works make the viewer feel like he/she is accompanying the artist through nostalgic America of New England and Pennsylvania as well as New York and New Jersey. For thirty-four years, Robert Score states that he has been drawing images “of barns, machinery, fields, and people now forgotten and buried under the pavement of progress.” Many of the barns he has drawn in ink are gone as well as the fields around them. Much of the machinery is scrapped or hidden away. The men and women who worked all of it, he continues “lived all of it -- all are gone, too and nearly all forgotten.” With this exhibit comes not only the artist’s renditions but his feelings towards an important era in Orange County heritage and history–what he terms the “Golden Age of the Family Farm”. Questions may be directed to Cultural Affairs at 845-341-4891.
