CANVAS!


Publisher’s Column by Barry Plaxen It’s our ninth anniversary. I was told to write something relating to that occasion. So I decided to look through our first issue, which was July-August 2004, 24 pages. In those early years we had collages on the cover - small photographs that depicted what was inside the issue, covering all the entertainment and arts genres. Today, with a small size newspaper (not our choice), collages don’t work as well. But I love them. The issue, edited by D.C. Henriquez of Swan Lake, is somewhat amazing, in that it contains articles on names and faces that are well-known today, some who were known before we began publishing and others who came into the spotlight later. The cover collage contained photos of folk duo Ken and Julie, Creative-TheatreMuddy-Water Players performing the farce Noises Off (see this issue about their farce Lend Me A Tenor), artwork by Shawn Dell Joyce and Roberta Rosenthal, artwork from Rock Hill’s Swarovsky Disney Gallery, Forestburgh Playhouse (with the headline “Goodbye Dolly, Hello Miss Saigon”), Dr. Woomyung Choe and the Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra, photos of Thrall Library, a Paul Taylor dance concert at Sullivan County Community College, and opera divas Claudia Cummings and Mongaup Valley’s gift to the Met Opera and the world, Stephanie Blythe. Some of those names are of people we here at CANVAS consider friends. Certainly friends in the sense of camaraderie within the arts and entertainment community, but most wonderfully some as real “friends”. Debbie (D.C) had gathered a small group of writers who also fit into the above

“friends” categories, names often seen throughout the year in recent issues: Robert Milby (the area’s poetry reading go-to person and writer of our first Milford story (the Waterwheel Cafe), Terry Schommer (from Weekend of Chamber Music), Gary Schuster from the arts-friendly law offices of Jacobowitz & Gubitz and a cohort of mine on both the Orange County Arts Council Board of Directors and a Sullivan County Arts Networking Group, and Roanne Patterson who found her NYC High School of Performing Arts classmate Debbie (D.C.) Henriquez for us. Others, some now friends too, mentioned in the first issue are Marge Bell and her ‘Handmade/Fairtrade” emporium Newburgh Artisans, present-day CANVAS columnist Susan Handler, artists Ann Higgins, Cynthia Harris-Pagano, Marie Liu, Robert Friedman, Kathy Jeffers, and Mary Mugele Sealfon, musicians Suzanne Clune, Sonando, Shallow Oldies, Little Sammy Davis, Chris Sullivan, the Swing Shift Orchestra, Robert Kopec and the Pine Bush Community Band, Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, Delaware Valley Opera, Catskill Art Society, Cultural Affairs at OCCC, NACL Theatre, Neversink Valley Museum, Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop, and Warwick Valley Winery. Almost all of these names can be seen somewhere in this or very recent issues. I think that’s pretty remarkable.

Celebrate CANVAS’ 9th Anniversary at the Fly Fishing Museum’s Summerfest/Jubilee

Music, Art, Environment & Dogs, Oh My!

CANVAS is 9 in July! Thank YOU!

CANVAS is sponsoring a Plein Air Paintout and Art & Craft Sale at the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum’s (CFFCM) Summerfest / Jubilee Weekend to complement the Museum’s 30th annual Summerfest and Anglers Market. CANVAS has invited artists and artisans from all over the region to participate. Artists will create a fishing themed art piece. The 1,000+ visitors throughout the weekend will vote on a “Best of Show” award, and the artwork created at the event will be on display in the Museum’s beautiful new Wulff Gallery from August 12 - October 18. The Hardy Cup, a bamboo rod casting contest bringing in casters from our backyard to as far away as Japan, will provide a pig roast barbeque, at no charge for all present. In the Wulff Gallery on Sunday at 3:00pm: celebrate ‘Doc’ Allan Fried who was very important to the Museum’s community, and organization. And the Annual Jubilee Day

Museum employee Agnes Van Put (with Joan Wulff) will be 97 in August. photo: Eli Ruiz, Sullivan County Democrat

celebrates events and special occasions that end in three (3) for anyone who has a birthday, anniversary, or other special day ending in a three. Cake will be served immediately following the announcing of the Hardy Cup winners. Present-day CFFCM employee, Agnes Van Put will also join in the festivities. She is always up for a party! For a summer day out, bring the whole family. Those not interested in fly fishing can roam the field at their leisure and visit with CANVAS’ artists and crafters. The Anglers Market runs August 3 & 4, Saturday from 8:30am-5:30pm and Sunday from 9:00am-3:30pm at 1031 Old Route 17, Livingston Manor. For more information, call 845-439-4810.

Music, art, and the environment are the primary themes of Narrowsburg’s Riverfest, presented by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and sponsored by Catskill Regional Medical Center, embodying the spirit of the Delaware River Valley and highlighting the artists who live and work in the valley. Riverfest’s distinguishing characteristic is the access it affords to the artists whose products are being sold. Everything at Riverfest is artist-made and the person who is selling it to you is the artist him/herself: broom makers; potters; jewelers; textile, wood, and glass artists; writers, and painters. Get a book signed or watch a chainsaw artist create a new sculpture, a potter throwing clay, or a fly tier making the perfect fly for the perfect catch. Music opens the festivities just before 10:00am, followed by the ever-popular River Dogs on Parade. Pooches and pups strut their

stuff at the bandstand, all hoping to win the “best of” awards, while emcee Kevin McDonough offers running commentary and the Dog Parade judges deliberate. Artists are highlighted most dramatically at the Riverfest poster auction that takes place at the bandstand at 12:30pm. The work of over five dozen artists, whose posters are created especially for the festival in every conceivable medium from watercolor to fabric to wood, are auctioned off by Jerry Malek. These beautiful interpretations are on display in the gallery windows of the Delaware Arts Center and National Park Service and can also be seen online at www.ArtsAllianceSite.org. The 23rd Annual Riverfest is on July 28, from 10:00am-4:00pm at the edge of the Delaware River on Main Street. Admission is free. For more information call 845-252-7576.

Wurtsboro Art Alliance: “We Call It Art”

Ceramics by Patti Anderson

The Wurtsboro Art Alliance (WAA) celebrates this year’s Founders Day with the opening of their exhibit titled, We Call It Art. WAA founding member Patti Anderson will be showing her ceramic pieces. Patti states, “My first experience with ceramics, aside from modeling clay in kindergarten, occurred in 1973 when I was given a gift of ceramic bisque, six acrylic colors, and one brush from a friend who realized I needed a hobby. One piece led to another and by 1977 I had a small ceramics business of my own mostly making slipcast pieces, teaching, and selling finished ware. In 1979 my life took me to a contracting site in the Venezuelan jungle, where, surprisingly, I was able to buy ceramic supplies locally and continue my business on a small scale.” Following his retirement from teaching, Gene

“All American” by Gene Weinstein

Weinstein continued his interest in outdoor photography, particularly bald eagle behavior. For 22 years he was a volunteer bald eagle monitor for the D.E.C. in the NYS Bald Eagle Restoration Project. Most recently, over $2,000 worth of his local bald eagle framed photos were donated to the Delaware Highlands Conservancy to support their efforts in preserving the environment. The gallery will be open all day on July 6, during Founders Day. Visitors to the gallery that day will enjoy an exhibit and sale of original works of art made by local area artists, art demonstrations, raffle drawings and vendor booths. The WAA members exhibit is on display thru July 28 at the Gallery, 73 Sullivan Street. Visit www.waagallery.org for information.

Town band concerts were once the main source of live entertainment in small towns throughout the country. With the advance of “talking picture shows” in the 1920’s, competition for audience attention increased. In many instances, the town band became less and less popular and in many communities, town bands disappeared altogether.

In 2012 the beautiful Arboretum became the new home of

the Newburgh Jazz Series,” she stated. Retaining the “name” of the original concert series because of her love for the City of Newburgh where it all began, she added, “we have carved out a strong jazz music presence in Orange County. Our events are tourist quality events that bridge all cultures and generations.” Indicative of that statement, the eclectic Wednesdays at 6:30pm Jazz series opens on July 3 with the Walker Valley Marching Band, classical baritone Jonathan Dobin singing God Bless America & America The Beautiful, and, as always for the opening event, Chiku Awali African Dance. Returning will be one of the best known and highly respected musicians of Afro-Cuban and Latin music today, the seven time Grammy nominee Bobby Sanabria.

July Art at the Wallkill River School & Art Gallery

Elizabeth Ocskay was born in Vienna, Austria to Hungarian refugees and spent her early years on a farm in the countryside. She began drawing animals, particularly horses, as soon as she was able to hold a pencil. Her family emigrated to America when she was five, and she continued to draw, studying watercolor at the Woodstock School and more recently pastels at the Wallkill River School (WRS). Ocskay has had several careers: travel industry and personnel, and is now a Social Worker at a drug rehab. Because she no longer has to commute to New York she has more time for art and is devoting herself again to this longtime love. She also has practiced yoga for years and finds spiritual strength in nature, meditation and the zen of creating art. Michael Piotrowski rekindled his passion for oil painting after a forty-year hiatus. For over thirty years his creativity found expression through light in his professional career as a Stage Lighting Designer. He received a BS in Art Education with additional graduate courses in Photography and Art History from SUNY New Paltz. Recalling his father’s lifelong passion for music, Piotrowski felt encouraged to return to painting. It all came together for him at an oil

“Double Vision” by Catherine DeMaio

painting workshop offered by William Noonan at the WRS. Michael dug out his old paint box, passed down from his mother, containing paint tubes so old and crusted it took pliers to open them! Soon, Michael’s creative energy also released, and he has produced a body of oil paintings ready to be exhibited. His passion for painting has been seen in group shows at the WRS, Gallery Warwick, and the Garrison Art Center in Garrison. Besides the “main” two solo members’ exhibits at the WRS, there is always a second themed all-members’ exhibit in the “hallway” gallery. Farms through July 14 and Orange County July 15 through August 14. The third monthly exhibit is in the “workshop” room and features an “emerging

artist”, exhibiting at WRS for the first time. A misnomer can be a word that is used incorrectly or misleadingly, as in the case of artist Catharine DeMaio. True, she is emerging as an exhibition artist, but she has painted all her life. Not only has she painted since childhood, but DeMaio has taught cartooning, drawing, watercolors and pencil art at SUNY Orange since 1990, in public and parochial schools in Walden, at Thrall Library (since 2000) for children and for adults, at the Interactive Museum, and at commercial establishments such as A.C. Moore. Not what one might call ‘emerging’. So, after so many years of painting and teaching, why is she finally ‘emerging’ as an

Carol Castel: Artistic Director of the DVO

“Eagles Will Soar With the High C’s.” There’s no misprint in that declaration! The Delaware Valley Opera (DVO) calls Narrowsburg its home and Narrowsburg is the renowned Eagle Capital of New York State. This relaxed hamlet, with a population of 400 hardy souls, sits seductively snuggled between the Catskills and the Poconos, overseeing the banks of the Delaware River on the New YorkPennsylvania border. Beyond symbolic wildlife and tantalizing vistas, there are multiple treasures to be found in this Western pocket of Sullivan County. Leading this writer’s list is Carol Castel, the energetic, gregarious Artistic Director of the DVO. Ms. Castel returned to the Opera in the spring of 2011, bringing with her a renewed sense of vitality and expansion. This season, Carol’s artful scheme continues its reaches beyond the confines of the Delaware River Valley, stretching the majesty of opera to neighboring counties and across the rivers, Hudson and Delaware. In addition to the Sullivan County venues of the attractive Tusten Theatre in Narrowsburg, the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts and the accommodating theatre at State University of New York at Sullivan, the company will journey to the Historic Village of Montgomery in Orange County, the Wallenpaupack High School in Hawley, PA and finally crossing the Hudson to Dutchess County where on October 20 La Traviata will be performed with the Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra at the Rhinebeck High School Theater. DVO’s presentation schedule is exciting and as well as celebratory. It’s the year of musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the bicentennial of the influential Italian romantic composer Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi. Aside from the indisputable genius of Mozart the concentration on his music creates a “festival approach. The three Mozart productions all together make an event.” remarked Ms. Castel. She stated further, “Some people may not want to come to this but want to come to that. I want to see all three together. I want to understand why they were chosen together. Like a sonata, you hear one movement fine but what about the whole thing?” With reference to Mozart’s comic Impresario, sometimes called the Battle of the Prima Donnas and the Seraglio, an opera singspiel in three acts, “There’s some incredible singing...,” remarks Carol Castel. She states further, “They’re not done that often so many don’t know them and the people who like Mozart will come and expand their musical experience while those not as familiar, will be shocked at 12

Delaware & Hudson CANVAS

how fabulous they are. The singing is absolutely astronomical!” A brief glimpse into the personal and professional development of the DVO’s Artistic Director, Carol Castel is to discover the relationship between events of youth and the activities of the adult. Ms. Castel’s reaction and comments related to this topic support the experiential school of development: “There is one musical event that changed me from musical theatre to opera.” She explained. “Opera was not anywhere in my home...it was not a part of my parents’ background or culture. I remember when I was at American University; I was a theatre major and I got some free tickets to see Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor by the New York City Opera Company. I tried to get rid of them but nobody wanted them. So I went and saw Beverly Sills and I heard Beverly Sills! It was the first time I heard the human voice live like that and I could not leave the theatre. I sat there and thought: that’s impossible. People can’t sound like that! I actually went back stage and told her she had changed my life”! It was the Beverly Sills’ experience that caused Carol to proclaim: “Now that’s musical theatre!” As soon as the semester ended, I promptly changed to a music performance major. My instrument? the voice.” “Eagles Will Soar With the High C’s.” To obtain additional information regarding the schedule of the DVO, visit its website: www.delawarevalleyopera.org In addition to pertinent times and locations, find what may be the grandest entertainment bargain of the year: the cost of a DVO season ticket!

NYC Cabaret Stars at SLPAC

SPOTLIGHT ON: SUGAR LOAF GUILD “Summer Sizzles” at Bliss Co-Op

Andrea McArdle (photo above) is best known for her portrayal of the original Annie in the Broadway musical of the same name. As a youngster, she was also involved in the superb 1978 TV movie Rainbow playing the young Judy Garland. McArdle’s big voice’ll come out to Sugar Loaf, not tomorrow, but on July 13 as the first of a new cabaret series in the Pavilion at Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center, Kings Highway. McArdle premiered her solo cabaret show 70’s and Sunny to sold-out houses at NYC’s 54 Below in late July 2012. She triumphantly retuned to the venue with an equally successful engagement in January 2013. The show captures her enthusiastically nostalgic and fascinating performances. As a voice that helped shape and define a decade, she humbly tributes other influential artists of the 70s by presenting audiences with music from the likes of Peter Allen, Stephen Schwartz, Billy Joel, Jerry Herman, and Marvin Hamlisch.

McArdle’s set list easily excites listeners with its familiarity and her skill to make each of these songs feel surprisingly novel once more. Hopefully, she will relate her most humorous tale about being scolded by Carol Channing when, as an adolescent, she derided the song Tomorrow from ANNIE while talking to a dancer backstage when she and Channing appeared in Jerry’s Girls, a revue of Jerry Herman songs which toured the USA for many years with many different stars. McArdle will be followed on July 27 by NYC cabaret star Karen Mason (photo above) who has starred on Broadway, Off-Broadway, television, and recordings, and is a ten-time MAC Award winner and has won the MAC Award for Major Female Vocalist of the Year for six consecutive years. She has also won the 2006 Nightlife Award for Major Female Vocalist and has three Bistro Awards. Both performances start at 8:00pm. Call 845-610-5335 for info and reservations.

Sugar Loaf Guild member Bliss Co-op is a women’s cooperative specializing in unique home and gift items handcrafted by more than 55 local women. Bliss will have a “Summer Sizzles” event on July 6 & 7 from 11:00am - 6:00pm. Saturday, July 6 Noon - 4:00pm: Bring the kids for face painting by Kate Stigdon of KAS Art, along with crafting projects. Free for all for the kids. Noon - 2:00pm: Author Wendy Oliveras will discuss her book Let’s Play SHESS, written to inspire women of all ages to play a fun game of chess and transfer those skills into real life including strategies for business development. Wendy will play chess with all challengers from 2:00pm - 4:00pm. 2:00pm - 4:00pm: Adrienne Butvinik of Catmaid will demonstrate her excellent tye dye technique. You can create and take home

your own tye dye t-shirt. $5 material fee. 2:00pm - 4:00pm: Author Taylor Sterling will present her book I Love You...Goodbye (How to Rid Your Life of Toxic Relatives and Friends Without Using Harmful Pesticides). Sunday, July 7 Noon - 2:00pm: Wendy Oliveras will again present her book Let’s Play SHESS. She will play too, from 2:00pm - 4:00pm. 2:00pm - 4:00pm: Taylor Sterling will read from and discuss I Love You...Goodbye described as “a road map on how to create positive, passionate energy...with a humorous touch.” 4:00pm - 5:00pm: Author and Illustrator Mary Bono of SnoozeCrafts will read from her picture books, Ugh! A Bug and Easy Street. Bliss is located at 37 Kings Highway, Romers Alley #4B in Sugar Loaf. For information, call 518-77-Bliss.

Great American Weekend 2013 Bring the family, your friends and everyone you know to experience Goshen’s true spirit of community, friendship and fun at the 31st Annual Great American Weekend! (GAW) Since the first patriotic celebration back in 1982 to help promote harness racing at the Historic Track, the races today are still an integral part of the activities. • 5k/10k road race • arts & crafts fair • food tent • harness racing at Goshen track • children’s rides • merchants on the square • rock wall • entertainment • strawberry festival and much more! Ted Spiegel described the goings-on in a June 2005 article in Hudson Valley Magazine: “Goshen is not only the Orange County seat, it’s also the site of the Great American Weekend, arguably the Hudson Valley’s liveliest Fourth of July celebration. Twenty thousand people a day will stroll through the nine-acre village green that surrounds the First Presbyterian Church, inspecting the offerings at 150 craft booths, grazing their way through a culinary snackopedia, and clapping approval for local entertainers.” According to former chairperson Wendy

Bynum-Wade, every event has a guardian angel and GAW over the years has had many. “We have lost a number of GAW individuals who gave a great deal of their time, resources and mostly of themselves to help this event grow into what it is today. Toni deGeode, Ruth White, Larry Meinwald and our beloved Police Chief John H. Egbertson, Sr. were all vital members of prior committees. Most recently, we lost Sarah “Sally” Wheeler who was an inspiration to all who knew her. “Today we miss them and will always be indebted to them for being the guiding forces behind Goshen’s beloved Great American Weekend.” Rain or shine, in Village Square, also known as Church Park, in the heart of Goshen at Route 207 (Main St.) and South Church Street: July 6, 9:00am-5:00pm, and July 7, 10:00am-5:00pm. Parking is available throughout the Village. Handicapped spaces are designated at the Berkshire Bank parking Lot at the corner of South Church Street and Route 207. Please, no dogs.

Pond Illuminated, Historians Honored

Mary McTamaney & Don Herron Herron photo courtesy of Jonathan Dobin

The Downing Park Planning Committee is holding its annual fundraiser to continue the restoration for the beautiful Vaux-Olmsted designed park in the heart of the city. Downing Park was actually the most-used venue for the magical and impressive June Newburgh Illuminated weekend with six bands performing from morning to night, lots of people on the stage, a marketplace, and Trestle, Inc.’s all-day kids activities culminating in awards for their artwork about the Illumination. The celebratory “electric” joy of the June weekend now generates over to the Committee’s July 20 fundraiser in The Shelter House and Visitors Center, 123 Carpenter Avenue. Besides a catered dinner, wine, and dancing, there will be a silent auction. The Polly Pond will carry on the new ”tradition” of illumination and its 26 lights, some of which were “bought” at past fundraisers, will illuminate the pond for evening boat rides. The colorful history of the park’s peacocks will be recognized during the evening’s festivities, and two Newburgh

historians Mary McTamaney and Don Herron will be honored. In addition to her role as Newburgh City Historian, Mary McTamaney also directs the Newburgh Heritage Center, is on the Board of the Historical Society, serves on the Newburgh Waterfront Advisory Committee and writes about Newburgh history for the Mid-Hudson Times. She was, of course, on the June Newburgh Illuminated Planning Committee. Don Herron was a freelance writer who wrote often on Newburgh’s history, and in fact, wrote about the creation of Downing Park for CANVAS in 2005. He was also an artist known for his sketches of Newburgh’s historic buildings. His home on First Street, where Thomas Edison stayed when he came to Newburgh to illuminate it, was one of the openhouse venues for the Illumination weekend. To order fundraiser tickets, call 845-565-5559 or mail a check, $60 per person, to Downing Park, PO Box 306, Newburgh, NY, 12550. Tickets may also be purchased online at www.downingpark.org - but be sure to send an email that “ticket payment” is forthcoming.

Pulitzer Prize-Winner John Harbison at “Transformations” Weekend of Chamber Music's 20th Edition

by Philip Ehrensaft

The likely musical highlight among multiple highlights at the aptly named Transformations, the 20th anniversary transformation of the Weekend of Chamber Music, is the world premiere of a violin and piano duet by the invited composer-inresidence, Pulitzer Prize winner John Harbison, performed by the eminent violinist Rose Mary Harbison, the composer’s wife and longtime musical partner, with Harbison himself playing piano (see photo). In its initial guise, the Weekend of Chamber Music was literally that: Judith Pearce, the festival founder, and one of the Big Apple’s finest flutists, used her networks to bring a summer weekend of A-level chamber musicianship to the Catskills. In 2009, Pearce brought the University of Syracuse-based composer, Andrew Waggoner, to the festival as the resident composer - and improvisor. Waggoner also plays a mean violin, and is at the forefront of a movement to return

Andrew Waggoner, Tannis Gibson, Caroline Stinson, John Harbison, Judith Pearce

improvisation to the core of classical music, as it was from Bach through Liszt. While staying on as the chair of the festival’s board of trustees, Pearce has passed on the artistic direction baton to a musical power couple: Waggoner and his wife, the cellist Caroline Stinson, whose repertoire runs from Bach’s suites for solo cello through the works of living composers. Their new artistic direction brings us two extra-long weekends of concerts and talks, July 18-28, prefaced by a free outdoor concert July 14. Reflecting Stinson’s wide mastery of the composed art music repertoire, old and new, Transformations will include music by Bach, Rameau, Haydn, Beethoven, Borodin, Maw, Martinu, Stravinsky, Sergei Wasilenko and, of course, Waggoner and Harbison. For an opening act for Waggoner and Stinson’s artistic strategy for this now 20

year-old chamber music festival, using the word coup is an understatement for bringing Harbison to the Transformations Festival. Bravo! When not doing the like of winning a Pulitzer Prize or a MacArthur Genius Award, he’s a prof at MIT, a jazz pianist, a conductor, and a poet. The general musical public knows Harbison best via his opera The Great Gatsby, commissioned by the Met to celebrate James Levine’s 25th anniversary, wielding the baton at the iconic venue. As a young composer, Harbison was drawn to both serial atonality and Stravinsky’s neoclassicism, and founded his first jazz ensemble when he was only fourteen. It didn’t take long for Harbison to change gears towards an artistic credo “...to make each piece different from the others, to find clear, fresh, large designs, to reinvent traditions.”

David St. George, writing in the New Grove Dictionary of Music, portrays Harbison’s work as “...eclectic, ever open to fresh sources of development in the music of any style or period, and always rigorously self-disciplined. Reveling in ambiguities of all kinds, it reveals further levels of meaning upon repeated listening.” To prepare your ears for Harbison’s music at Transformations, I suggest starting with the Met Opera Shop’s Great Gatsby CD, or listen online via the Met Opera On Demand site (www.metoperafamily.org). Or delve into one of the other 87 recordings devoted in whole or in part to Harbison’s music. Then I’d go to Bridge’s overview CD of both chamber and orchestral music, featuring Lorraine Hunt Lieberson singing Harbison’s settings of Eugenio Montale’s poems of memory and loss; Naxos’ 3-CD series of his chamber music; and the First Edition’s and Albany’s respective disks of Harbison’s orchestral music. These Naxos, First Edition, and Albany recordings can also be heard via subscribing to the invaluable Naxos Music Library. (www.naxosmusiclibrary.com) Tickets can be purchased online at www.weekendofchambermusic.com. For information: 845-887-5803. See ad page 33.

COMMUNITY BUILDING THROUGH THE ARTS with Susan Handler

Creating Community: The Life of Allan Bérubé Rarely do we have an opportunity to explore the birth of an activist and the impact that one person can have on society. This month the Liberty Museum and Art Center explores Creating Community: The Life of Allan Bérubé. He was devoted to providing a voice about the everyday lives of the women and men in our gay communities. Although he passed away in 2007, his voice as a community-based scholar, published author, social justice advocate, anti-war organizer, anti-AIDS activist, and visual artist, continues to have an impact on this country. At the heart of his life’s work were his efforts to communicate the human rights struggles in the American GLBT community. In essence, he was a sociologist bonding networks and building bridges. In his essay Intellectual Desire he writes, “I do my work in the borderlands between social classes, between the university and the community, between heterosexual and homosexual,

Allan Ronald Bérubé December 3, 1946 – December 11, 2007

between educated speech and down-to-earth talk, between Franco-American and Québécois, between my family and the gay community, between the past and the present.” As an awarding winning author and the recipient of the MacArthur Genius Grant Fellowship, his extensive research files, oral histories, and manuscripts have made a significant contribution to changing the political environment for the GLBT community. In his influential book Coming

Out Under Fire, based on the correspondence and interviews of dozen’s of men and women from all branches of the service, he explored the uneasy relationship between the United States military and its gay members. The documentation in this book provided Senator Ted Kennedy with the material to challenge the ban on gays in the military. From July 5-August 18 Hudson Valley residents are encouraged to attend the exhibit Creating Community: The Life of Allan Bérubé. This show is an opportunity to learn more about the community-engaged heart-felt temperament and contributions of the late Allan Bérubé. The Center is located at 46 South Main Street, Liberty. For more information call 845-292-2394 or e-mail LibertyNYMuseum@yahoo.com. Visit www.LibertyMuseum.com for more information. The Museum is also holding a three day forum “The Preservation Forum: The Great Catskills Resorts” from July 12-14 and The Great Catskill Resorts - photos and artifacts from the Ross Padluck Resort Collection, July 4-September 29.

The 20th Annual Liberty Festival Celebrating Liberty on the 4th of July will take place on Main Street from 10:30am-4:00pm with a classic car show, a parade at Noon, and music by the Carl Richards Band, Gary Cormier, and Whiskey Bent. A special tribute to Liberty’s Poet Laureate Walter Keller, (see photo) will be held at 10:35am. Pamela Murphy of Walden’s Hudson Valley Conservatory is bringing the Hudson Valley Fine Arts Singers to entertain on Main Street. Of course, there will be vendors and yummy food all day too. And don’t forget to find your creative side at the art-picnic (for all ages). Oh Yes! -- Get your frustrations out...take a shot at the dunking booth! For information call 845-292-9797.

Shandelee Music Festival’s 20th Anniversary For its 20th anniversary, the Shandelee Music Festival is collaborating with Bethel Woods Center for the Arts to present two concerts that feature Shandelee pianists from previous years. In 2004, 13 year old Allen Yueh was one of five solo pianists to perform at the Shandelee Music Festival. A former scholarship student of the Festival, he completed the gamut from child performer, advanced student and promising artist to concert pianist while still in his teens. Yueh’s upcoming performance on July 24 at 8:00pm is his fourth appearance for the Festival. (Editor’s note: Google “Ay, There’s the Rubato” to read Barry Plaxen’s review in the Catskill Chronicle of Yueh’s superb 2012 Shandelee concert.)

Four days after Yueh’s solo concert, audiences will have the pleasure of seeing and hearing three other graduates of Shandelee’s summer coaching program for young professional concert pianists, Doris Lee, Helen Shen, and Claudia Hu. A junior at Princeton University, Doris Lee has been regarded as “poised and elegant” by the Echoes Sentinel. Lee was a top prize winner

at numerous competitions, including the Young Pianist Competition of New Jersey (2004-2010), the Greater Princeton Steinway Society (2008), Piano Teachers Congress of New York (2010), and Goldblatt Scholarship Competition (2010), among others. Lee attended the Shandelee Music Festival (Shandelee, New York) in the summer of 2009 and 2011 where she studied with Alexander Shtarkman and Yong-Hi Moon of Peabody Conservatory, as well as Mykola Suk of Nevada University. At the age of 5, Helen Shen began to study the piano with Lana Ivanov, Shandelee Artistic Director. Within one year, Shen began to win competitions and at the age of 6, performed for the first time at Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie

July 2013

Hall as a winner of the 2006 Russian Music Festival Competition. Since then, Shen has performed with the Orchestra Sinfonica del Festival di Chioggia, (Chioggia, Italy) during the summers of 2008, 2010 & 2012. Manor Ink For those of you who are not aware, Manor Ink is THE newspaper of Livingston Manor and Shandelee. What is unique about this monthly publication is that the staff is solely comprised of Livingston Manor High School students. Reprinted from the August 2012 issue of Manor Ink by Gem Helper: “On Friday, August 3, 2012, Khris, Tyler, Hannah and Gem of Manor Ink went up to the Shandelee Music Festival site to interview that year’s class of five student pianists. Up and coming students are the heart of the piano festival. “Claudia Hu - Age 14, from New Jersey. “Claudia started playing piano at age 5. She

started playing as soon as she started to understand music. In the future, she wants to become a better performer. She has decided to make a career in music because it makes her happy to play and she likes to be challenged by harder pieces. “Claudia also plays the violin as well as the piano. She advises people to keep trying and never give up when you’re stuck on a problem. If you do this, you are sure to move forward, she says. To succeed in music, she believes that you need to understand the structure and practice. Her favorite composer is Chopin because she likes his nocturnes.” Claudia Hu has appeared numerous times at Weill Recital Hall, Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and Steinway Hall. The triumvirate pictured above left will perform Bach, Mozart & Beethoven at Bethel Woods on July 28 at 3:00 pm. For tickets: 845-439-3277.

July Art at The ARTery

Artist Debbie Gioello, who is passionate about her collection of bigger than life, realistic butterflies, states, “After a winter solace, spring brings life and brightness to the natured earth. For me, the life cycle of butterflies represents this beauty of metamorphisms. Emerging with their splendid color configurations, a butterfly’s beauty represents transformation at its grandest.” Gioello’s butterfly paintings are vividly colorful and were made using acrylic paints and varnish in a multiple glazing technique. The completed painting of the butterfly is cut away from the original canvas and superimposed on another painted canvas producing a layered, three-dimensional textured painting. Carol Margreither Mainardi has discovered a potent and transcendent metaphor for her life’s journey embodied in the image of

the mermaid. Using her own multi-texture self-developed collage techniques, lumiere metallic and pearlescent colors blend to inhabit their environment. The mixed media backgrounds, including suede board, fabric, and canvas embellished with materials found in nature books and decorative papers, are the essential ingredients of this enchanting archetypal alchemy. The exhibit is at the ARTery Gallery, 210 Broad Street, Milford, July 12-August 5. The Reception is during Milford’s Art After Dark, July 13, 6:00pm-9:00pm. 570-409-1234.

Tickled Pink: Beauty and The Breast

by Joe Di Bello

In a tumultuous world with an overabundance of emotional bombardments and a daily dose of frightful, horrific news casts, it seems one tragedy follows the other with monotonous and predictable repetition. Breaking stride, a personal event may interrupt a life with a terrifying roar of thunder and a searing bolt of lightning. Such an event crashed into the life of Marie Burger of Walden’s Tickled Pink, a fashion conscious boutique designed to meet post mastectomy needs. A mere seven years ago, Marie was confronted by her physician. With gentle eyes and an appropriately stern face, he looked at Marie straight ahead and convincingly stated, “You have breast cancer!” Fortunately, and in terms of friendship and support, Marie’s cousin, who was in fact more like a sister, confronted an identical predicament. Emotionally holding hands they embraced while each courageously braved the chemotherapy, the radiation and then the dreaded surgery. Completing the prescribed, arduous therapy each was unequivocally convinced: they had earned a vacation! However, the task of finding swim suits and

26

Delaware & Hudson CANVAS

sportswear to accommodate their now altered bodies proved Herculean. Marie recalls with fine detail the next chapter of her determined quest. “There was no type of boutique around here! In Manhattan they had them but there was nothing in this area and for us to go to the City to buy bras and things was not doable! I promised myself, once I made it through the three-year window, (the period of time required to determine if the cancer has been clinically eradicated) I was going to open up a boutique in this area, that’s on a smaller scale than the one at Sloan Kettering but with the same idea.” Emphatically, she continued, “So I decided I would carry top-of-the-line fashions: swimsuits, wigs, prosthetics, bras, and pocketed bras! I had to go back to school and become accredited by the BOC.” (Board of Certification / Accreditation, for orthotic & prosthetic certification. Marie went on to reference the LBBC’s (Living Beyond Breast Cancer) simple yet complex definition of breast cancer as follows, “Breast cancer occurs when normal breast cells

July 2013

grow and reproduce out of control, turning into cancerous (malignant) cells. These abnormal cells grow so much that they fill the ducts (ductal cancer) or the lobules (lobular cancer) of the breast. The lobules are glands that produce breast milk, and the ducts are the passageways that carry the milk from the lobules to the nipple.” A mastectomy calls for the complete removal of one or both breasts followed by options. The most common are reconstructive surgery or prosthesis, which is an artificial breast form that fits into the bra. Prosthesis is designed to present a breast shape under the clothing. The design and creation of a prosthesis or, as in numerous cases, prostheses have recently developed into their own art form. To follow Marie Burger’s recent training in the design and application of “custom prosthetics” is fascinating. “I actually do a mold of the chest wall, so if there’s any missing tissue or extra tissue, the back of the prosthesis will fit that person. It’s very realistic. First you do a mold of the chest wall. Then you fit that person with a bra and an

off-the-shelf prosthesis. Then you manually shape it and send it to an art studio in Detroit where they actually make the prosthesis that is very life like and the back wall of it is customized to fit that person’s chest wall. And I can also do custom nipples. For example, if someone comes to me before surgery, I can construct a mold of their nipples and place it in that individual’s file. Then after surgery, I can duplicate the nipple that was lost in surgery. The final product is very realistic, frequently with veins and beauty marks showing.” The molding referenced above is completed as an at-home-service, where the recipient will be most comfortable. It is after all a traumatic experience and most will be more at ease in a familiar setting, i.e., the recipient’s home.

Music in the Mill in New Milford

André George Louis Onslow (1784-1853) was an Anglo-French composer, widely recognized during his lifetime but virtually forgotten today. During Onslow’s lifetime and up to the end of the 19th century, his 36 string quartets and 34 string quintets were held in the highest regard, particularly in Germany, Austria and England, where he was regularly placed in the front rank of composers. His work was admired by both Beethoven and Schubert, the latter modeling his own double-cello quintet (D.956) on those of Onslow and not, as is so often claimed, on those of Boccherini. Robert Schumann, perhaps the foremost music critic during the first part of the 19th century, regarded Onslow’s chamber music on a par with that of Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. Mendelssohn was also of this opinion. For the July 28, 5:00pm concert at Pacem

in Terris in the New Milford area of Warwick on the banks of the Wawayanda Creek, the DNA Quintet (including Loma Mar Quartet) will Loma Mar Quartet perform music by Bach, Haydn’s Quartet Op 64 No 5 The Lark, and Onslow’s Quintet Op. 51, No 21 in g minor.

“Light as Medium” on Ann Street

In Light as Medium, artists using holographic and photographic techniques explore light as medium on their own terms. Works of particular interest are the holograms and laser works by Rudie Berkhout. Berkhout played a significant role in establishing holography as an art form in the 70’s and later became known as one of its foremost practitioners. Also on view in the exhibit are recent works by holographer Mary Harman and Susan Cowles-Dumitru. Harman uses the holographic image as a sculptural entity. Cowles-Dumitru concentrates on holograms using silver halide on glass, sometimes combining ink drawings on paper into her work. This exhibition also features the works of photographers Eric Anthony Johnson,

Amanda Mean & Sally Weber. Johnson is a photographer working in the wet-plate collodion Tintype tradition. Mean explores the creation of large-format Polaroid prints. Weber focuses on three-dimensional, large-format digital prints. The works in this show will be on view through August 17 at the Ann Street Gallery, 104 Ann Street in Newburgh. 845-784-1146.

Salon d'Arte, an exhibition featuring original art by Hemlock Farms artists and their friends, curated by Joan Polishook, will run from July 1-August 29. Polishook also heads the Come Paint With Me plein air events in Pike County. The opening reception is on July 5 from 5:00pm-8:00pm.

Catskill-area photographer Louis Jawitz’ work has been displayed at the Catskill Art Society, the Sullivan County Museum and is in the permanent collection of the Liberty Museum & Arts Center. “People might say a picture is worth a thousand words,” says Jawitz, “but from time to time, a single image can be more like several chapters in a long novel.” That’s the case with any number of his own photos, in which multiple subjects seem to each tell a totally separate story, while all contributing to the unified whole. “I look for clarity and individuality on the smaller scales,” Jawitz

explained, “but significant fusion when it’s viewed all together.” Jawitz returns to The Old Stone House of Hasbrouck this July with another collection of his images in a new show titled India that depicts the lives of everyday people in that vast and diverse nation. This is his third exhibition at the Old Stone House, each previous show having generated record-setting attendance. The opening reception is on July 7, from 2:00pm-4:00pm, at 282 Hasbrouck Road (Woodbourne) and by appointment throughout the month.

“Neo-Burlesque” at NACL

Henhouse Prowlers at Dancing Cat

James Habacker a.k.a. Mel Frye, Gal Friday, Mat Holzclaw and Ekatarina

When The Slipper Room, New York City’s renowned palace of variety, opened in 1999, neo-burlesque was in its infancy. Before that time there had been some random shows in lofts and bars around Manhattan, but the Slipper Room was the first venue built specifically to showcase the work of this burgeoning new collective. It was an art project in itself, an artist run venue designed to nurture emerging talent, and push performers to reach their true potential. The early shows were mostly comprised of performance artists, drag queens, experimental dancers, sideshow acts, and anyone who showed up with an idea, no matter how outrageous, messy, lewd, or illegal. Very often in the early days there were not enough performers to make up a full show, and producer James Habacker would ply his friends with drinks, dress them up in outrageous costumes and quickly concoct a plot before pushing them out on stage.

Delaware & Hudson CANVAS

It wasn’t long before word got around about this new artist collective, and enough young talent presented themselves at the Slipper Room to make it possible to put up high quality shows most every night. As master of ceremonies, James allowed performers a forum to push themselves and try out new work without fear of censorship. He also added comic relief with his wide variety of characters, his satirical wit, and love of Vaudeville. The Slipper Room, brings Mr. Choade’s Wilde Ride to NACL for one special night of cabaret, burlesque, magic and contortion. Hosted by “borscht belt legend Mel Frye”, the evening features burlesque legend Gal Friday, magic man Mat Holzclaw, go-go sensation Camillicious, acrobatic madman Topher, and contortionist Ekatarina. NACL Theatre is at 110 Highland Lake Road, Highland Lake. 21 and over? But, of course. For reservations: 845 557-0694.

After eight years of hard work and a relentless tour schedule, Chicago’s Henhouse Prowlers have gained a reputation for their highly original, tradition-inspired bluegrass built on a strong foundation of intricate harmonies and electrifying stage energy. The Henhouse Prowlers use traditional bluegrass as a base, and make it their own by providing a show that’s danceable throughout with uptempo drive and bouncing mid-tempo grooves, all while covering contemporary topics in a largely original repertoire. Their reverence for the forefathers of bluegrass is palpable as they push the music forward on their own path. The Prowlers wear the Bill Monroe mantle with spit and polish. They perform - and conduct media interviews - in suit-and-tie and work in a tightly choreographed, one-mic stage

setting, which adds a dynamic dimension to their shows. Combining passion, confidence, and flair with instrumental and vocal prowess, the Prowlers deliver bluegrass with an edge. With a PBS series soundtrack already to its credit and a critically acclaimed recording produced by Grammy winner, Sally Van Meter, and a new recording in production with Grammy Nominee Greg Cahill, Henhouse Prowlers have been barnstorming on to the red hot bluegrass scene. Not just another bluegrass band, Henhouse Prowlers are adeptly positioning themselves for nothing less than success. Listen to the Prowlers’ groove at the Dancing Cat Saloon, 2037 State Route 17B Bethel, on July 27 at 8:00pm. For more information, call 845-583-3141.


Groove to (U)nity’s Afro-Cuban Jazz in Parksville

The Dead End Café in Parksville was once a major Sullivan County restaurant/music venue. Everything was put on hold while our tax dollars went to work building the “Future 86” Parksville bypass and the I-86 contractor rented the restaurant space to house the construction crew. Now that the bypass is completed, the Parksville USA Music Festival will move into the Dead End Café, re-opening this favorite haunt of gourmands and music lovers for its July (U)nity concert. Festival producer and Dead End Café owner, basso Tom Caltabellotta, will serve food after the performance. (U)nity was conceived in 2006 by CubanAmerican drummer Amaury Acosta and Cuban pianist Axel Tosca Laugart, who aspired to create a completely original sound, fusing their Afro-Cuban roots with modern jazz and hip hop. Ironically, the group refers to this original genre, as “genre-less”, with each and every musical note and beat able to bridge what typically segregates music and people. As such, their music is able to reach each listener in its own unique way, regardless of age or taste. By doing so, listeners feel enlightened, refreshed and inspired by music again. At age 11, Amaury began studying privately with master drummer Alex Garcia.

Carol Nelson Falcone: Mother, Author, Artist, Sarcastic Humorist Carol Nelson Falcone is a bright, articulate humorist, enhanced with captivating wit and charm. Her appeal is contagious weather found over a cup of coffee or between the covers of her recent publication, Smirk, an intriguing compilation of humor, the joys of morning sickness and the inherent irony of those teeneyweeney blue pills. So what is humor? Can it be defined? Reportedly some of this world’s greatest thinkers - Plato, Socrates, Freud, et al.- have attempted without success to define the causal relationship of laughter to identifiable acts or events. For the academic, the quest isn’t even funny. If an author is able to judiciously employ the elements of humor and make people laugh, the plane of the goal line has been crossed. Simply score for the funny guys! Falcone’s academic background produced a writer well-versed in the fundamentals of writing humor. Not the least of her numerous fortes is the prudent use of hyperbole, an element of humor. Take for example her

Although a winning literary publication common, nothing-funny-abouttook Carol “under her wing” and it experience for mothers, Carol “inspired” her.

A Grand Rossini Spectacle in a Grand Sullivan Theatre

by Barry Plaxen

In 1580, Italian poet Torquato Tasso (1544 1595) wrote his best known poem, Jerusalem Delivered, a fictionalized account of the first crusade, circa 1099. Various sections (stories) of the poem were used as a basis for many operas, and in today’s world of opera his story of Rinaldo and Armida is somewhat known from performances of Handel’s opera Rinaldo. In April 2010, the Metropolitan Opera produced a version of the same story written by librettist Giovanni Schmidt that had its world premier in 1817. The opera was never done at the Met before, and after viewing it “Live in HD” on May 1 in the acoustically perfect Seelig Auditorium at Sullivan County Community College (SCCC) in Loch Sheldrake, one easily understood why. This adaptation by Schmidt of Tasso’s epic poem, titled Armida, was the brainstorm of Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868) and was composed during what might be called his “middle period”, after Barber of Seville and Cenerentola. Breaking with convention, Rossini created an opera with roles for - count them - no less than six tenors. “Rossini tenors” are hard to come by, but to find five of a high caliber for a production (one tenor sang two roles in this instance) is often almost impossible. His convention-breaking also includes - I know of

Backstage with Lawrence Brownlee and Renee Fleming

no other example - an outstanding trio written for three tenors. And expanding on convention, for his future wife, soprano Isabella Colbran, Rossini created one of the longest and most demanding soprano roles in the repertoire, containing extremely difficult coloratura passages along with both lyrical and dramatic passages of every sort. In general, most sopranos choose not to take on a role that includes these three different styles of singing: coloratura, lyric, dramatic. The story contains a combination of real and imagined historic characters, in addition to mythical and imagined creatures from the netherworld, which aid in the creation of a “grand” opera with scores of beings and the fascinatingly costumed creatures singing, dancing, running, jumping and pirouetting all over the stage and each other. (Yes, Armida has the obligatory fifteen minute ballet that grand

Onstage with Lawrence Brownlee and Renee Fleming

opera had to include in the early 19th century). The production under the helm of Mary Zimmerman was a spectacle. A grand entertainment. And necessarily so, because the cast of characters are all immersed in, and sing about, feelings of hate, rage, jealousy, revenge, pride, killing, manipulating, controlling, etc., and the performers were so perfect in their depictions of these unsavory qualities that it was difficult to find someone with whom to identify and to root for. So the viewer needed the entertaining spectacle to compensate for the lack of any ‘good character’ with whom to identify. And that also means the viewer had to be heavily involved with the music, more than with the usual combination of music and drama. Fortunately, that was easy to do. Though not as memorable as in the famous Rossini operas, the music was a joy to listen to. Highlighted by incredibly long melodic lines and tempestuously

difficult runs and glissandos (glissandi?), the audience thrilled to the technical perfection of the singing actors. And with the appearance of one tenor after another, it got better each time from superb performers such as John Osborn and then Barry Banks, to the magnificent and charismatic performance of Met star Lawrence Brownlee as Rinaldo. Which brings us to the other reason for producing Armida. Renee Fleming. Claiming not to be a coloratura specialist, or a spinto specialist, or a dramatic specialist, Fleming is capable of singing to perfection in all three styles. (Spinto, from the Italian, “pushed”, is a vocal term used to characterize a voice of a weight between lyric and dramatic.) As the only soprano in the cast, she “competed” with the tenors and with the massive production and “carried the show” with her technical abilities, her charm and her presence. And, once again, the Met chorus and orchestra need to be recognized for their contributions. Conductor Riccardo Frizza was shown to be “having a ball” conducting the riveting music and his enthusiasm was evident. I guess that’s who this viewer was rooting for. Thanks again go to SCCC for giving us the chance to see world class opera close-up. They will re-show Armida on July 10 at 7:00pm as part of the “Live from the Met in HD” series.

Holistic Happenings

But I WANT to Suffer! - Learning About Emotional Freedom Techniques by Debra Hollinrake

What would you say if someone offered you a chance to feel better and lead a happier life? What would you say if you were told it involved releasing stress, anxiety, grief, sadness, phobias, trauma, guilt, fear, chronic pain and more, quickly and permanently? Would you say, “Tell me more!?” Would you shake your head in disbelief and not pursue it at all? I am often amazed when the last reaction is the response I’ve gotten from many people. Why is it that many people would prefer to suffer? In other words, why don’t certain people want to live a happier life? Consider this. Over the last fifty to sixty years, western medical practitioners have embraced alternative methods of treatment that cause no harm and no negative side effects to the patient, i.e Reiki, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, Biofeedback, Acupressure or Meditation. These practices are non-invasive, safe and effective. No drugs are used for these methods and the only side effects are that you probably feel better and your life begins to move in a more positive direction. There is another method, however, that I have seen work almost 100% of the time. It’s called

Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as EFT, or “tapping”. EFT is based on 5000 year old research and study of the body’s electrical system, originally known as acupuncture. Acupuncture branched off into acupressure; no needles, and is quite effective on animals and humans. Then it evolved into EFT. With EFT, you use your fingers to lightly tap specific acupoints on your face and upper body to release negative energy. While you tap these points, you focus on the current disturbing issue while affirming something positive about yourself. Can it really be that simple? The answer is a resounding, “Yes!” I’ve seen people and animals alike relieved of serious physical and emotional pain within 20-30 minutes, often in less time than that. They’re relieved of pain and suffering that they’ve been walking around with for a very long time, sometimes for many years.

July 2013

Documented research now proves undeniably that soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and their families can go on to lead much happier lives with only a few sessions of EFT. A 2010 documentary, Operation Emotional Freedom, follows veterans through EFT treatment. The Veterans Stress Project with Dawson Church, Ph.D. is doing ongoing EFT work with veterans, producing positively life-altering results for many military families. EFT is proven to reduce psychological distress to the point where patients no longer meet the criteria for clinical PTSD - within just a few sessions. EFT works on animals just as effectively as humans. From eliminating fear of thunder, to separation anxiety to behavioral issues, EFT relaxes the animal to a point where they are well-behaved and calm. I recently saw a rambunctious puppy calm down and wait

patiently for her owner within 10 minutes of using EFT. Children experience the same results. Work with a child for a short time on anger, sadness or any negative emotion and they feel the difference immediately because they’re so sensitive. After they experience such results, children not only tend to use EFT, but they teach others how to use it as well! Why is EFT so effective? Because these techniques actually change the chemistry in your brain. Typically, when you respond to a given situation, you are responding from a past experience that is still alive and well in your brain. Following EFT protocol, within minutes your brain chemistry actually changes, and old response mechanisms are released. According to David Feinstein, PH.D., Donna Eden, Energy Medicine Expert and EFT Founder Gary Craig, “EFT frequently produces undeniable improvement in only one session and often works where other approaches do not.” Do you really want to walk around with pain, grief or stress hindering your true happiness? Or that of your child or your pet? The world can use a lot more happy people. With EFT, you can be one too.


PCAC’s 63rd Fine Art & Craft Show

by Tod Westlake

The Pike County Arts & Crafts Center (PCAC) will be hosting its 63rd annual arts and crafts show later this month, from July 17-28. PCAC has developed a devoted following through the decades and always attracts a large number of visitors every year. The membership famously transforms the Milford Borough Hall at 109 Catherine Street into a great gallery space, big enough to hold several hundred pieces! Matilda Gretch, one of the charter members of the center, says that the show will present a diverse selection of artworks, mostly by professional artists, but also including the works of talented local amateurs. “The PCAC will be exhibiting works from the whole area,” says Gretch. “This includes members of the North East Watercolor Society, Sussex County Art Society, River Valley Arts Guild and Middletown Art Group artists.” The center acts as nexus for local artists, giving people a chance to network with likeminded folks. It also works to broaden the experience of members by hosting demonstrations on the first Sunday of each

“Peacock” by Harriet Cotterill

month, providing a wide range of arts classes, and, of course, the once-a-year art show. “We have life classes, watercolor classes, oil, all mediums,” Gretch says. “And also workshops.” Gretch says that one of the center’s goals is to encourage the fledgling artist by providing a community through which someone who is just learning can grow. The center doesn’t jury the works that are submitted to the shop, so it’s really very open when it comes to those who are new to their craft. “People are really encouraged to enter the show,” Gretch says. “If you’re a beginning artist, we encourage that so you can show your work.” In fact, if you live in the area and are

interested in showing your work, you can download a copy of the prospectus off the arts center website. The center also gives away an arts scholarship to a local student each year. This $500 prize is named after Georgie Kiger, who was one of the founding members. “She was the moving force behind this [the center],” Gretch says, adding that the Kiger family provides the funds for the award each year. Gretch says that the show wouldn’t likely exist without Kiger’s tireless work, as well as the work of Ada and Gaetano Cecere. “The Ceceres, along with Georgie Kiger, they really started it,” Gretch says. One of Gretch’s other passions is her role as a founding member of the North East Watercolor Society (NEWS), another group that

has been going strong for many decades. Gretch says that several NEWS members will be on display at the Milford show, so visitors will also be seeing work by artists who do it for a living. “It’s a very professional bunch of artists,” says Gretch. “Whoever is exhibiting from the NEWS group, you are going to get some good work.” Harriet Cotterill is another fine artist who has been with the center since its very beginnings. She says that she really enjoys the camaraderie of working with other artists. “I enjoy the painting together,” Cotterill says. The center will be hosting an opening reception for the show on July 19 from 7:00pm-10:00pm. For more information about the center or the show, visit www.pikecountyartsandcrafts.org.

Born and raised in England, Houseago also lived in the Netherlands and Belgium before moving to Los Angeles in 2003, becoming a United States citizen in 2012. Houseago has taken a particular interest in outdoor sculpture, and as such Storm King Art Center is an ideal venue for an exhibition of his work. This exhibition includes indoor and outdoor sculpture in several media, including bronze, aluminum, wood, Tuf-Cal plaster, and charcoal, as well as drawings, displayed in Storm King’s Museum Building. Houseago began to create outdoor

sculpture in 2007, and this exhibition includes the earliest example of his large-scale work in bronze, and outdoor and indoor works completed as recently as 2013, and on view for the first time. As he has said, “In my approach to making sculpture, I try to be honest to the experience of looking and recording. You could argue that sculpture is a dramatization of the space between your eye and the world, between what you see and feel, and memory” David Brooks’ A Proverbial Machine in the Garden comprises a 1970s model Dynahoe tractor, complete with backhoe and front-end loader, that has been buried beneath Storm King’s iconic landscape. Brooks has selected visually arresting areas of the machine - including the excavating and loading buckets, and part of its cab - that are framed out in concrete shaftways left open to the sky, while the remaining body of the tractor is buried beneath the earthen hillside. Visitors are invited to stand on the shaftways’ steel grates and peer down into the exposed compartments of the tractor below the earth. The notion of a ‘machine in the garden’ is a cultural symbol that underlies the tension between the pastoral ideal and the rapid and sweeping transformations wrought by industrialized technology. The exhibit is on view until November 11

Bethel Woods Museum: Bethel The Woodstock Music and Art Fair was photographed by scores of professional photographers and photojournalists, but only Baron Wolman’s images of the festival told the story in Rolling Stone magazine immediately following the event. Wolman’s photos focus on the attendees and behind-the-scenes action, rather than the performers on the stage. “I spent more time photographing the festival ‘experience’ than I did the musicians,” Wolman writes. “I had shot most of the bands before so I thought why would I want to photograph them again? I didn’t need any more band pictures. But all those people...that was something else. I had never seen anything like this before in my life.” His iconic images helped to create the long-lasting, idealized myth of the festival. Museum Director Wade Lawrence explains, “Baron Wolman has been a pleasure to work with and we are honored that he has decided to donate his Woodstock festival images to the Museum. We are excited for the opportunity to share his extraordinary images with the public.” In conjunction with On Assignment: Woodstock, the Museum is displaying the first seventy-five covers of Rolling Stone magazine.

Woodstock by Baron Wolman

The covers feature the photography and artwork of Baron Wolman, Robert Altman, Annie Leibovitz, Jim Marshall, and Rick Griffin, among others, documenting the first five years of the venerable music, pop culture, and political newspaper/magazine. On the Cover of the Rolling Stone and On Assignment: Woodstock are on display until August 18. And along the entrance plaza...what better way to celebrate peace than with the deep, resonant sound of hand-crafted, large-scale bells? The Museum at Bethel Woods presents the 2013 outdoor sculpture exhibit, Shohola Bells: The Sound of Peace - a sculptural and aural art installation by renowned potter David continued on page 37

Seeing a Familiar Place for the First Time

Magic begins when the sun goes down and the lights turn on. Things that you are familiar with suddenly change and you see them again for the first time. “Sometimes after a concert on the waterfront we would drive up Broadway in Newburgh and notice how beautiful it was under the lights,” says photographer Tom Kneiser. “It wasn’t just Newburgh; it was in all the cities we traveled through. “With the perfection of the digital camera, I could capture that magic using the available glow from street lights. It was easy: mount the camera on a tripod, select the night exposure setting, aim and push the button. The camera did the rest. With a little help from PhotoShop the magic was enhanced.” An exhibit of Kneiser’s night-light photographs, in conjunction with the Newburgh Illuminated Festivities that took place in June, was inspired by Thomas Alva Edison. “It was Edison who gave light to the night when he perfected the light bulb and built generating stations like the one in Newburgh to supply the current.” Images are woven together to tell the tale of America’s most famous inventor coming to Newburgh in 1883 to personally oversee the construction of the Montgomery Street Power Station and the installation of the electric lines throughout the city. Edison wired the Deyo

house on Quality Row, where he stayed while in Newburgh and oversaw the electrification of the Calvary Presbyterian Church. His team of rivals (including George Westinghouse and Nikola Tesla) helped develop the electrical system we now enjoy. In our area, Central Hudson supplies the power to illuminate the night. “Thank you all - this exhibition is for you,” said Kneiser. The photographs have been hung at the Captain David Crawford House and will be on view through July 31. The Crawford House, 189 Montgomery Street, Newburgh, is open to the public Sundays from 1:00pm-4:00pm April through October, and by appointment. For information, call 845-561-2585.

“H” is for Lyrics in NewburgH and ForestburgH In the beginning God gave us these guys (along with many others) who honed and added to the art of great lyric writing, which began with W.S. Gilbert. Otto Harbach (1873-1963) lyricist and librettist of about 50 musical comedies is most remembered for being Oscar Hammerstein II's mentor and was one of the first librettists to believe that songs should be woven into a show, not just placed there. He is also considered one of the first great lyricists, because most of his contemporaries were considered hacks. This was because the shows usually didn’t focus on lyrics, just the music, the costumes, and the stars. Oscar Hammerstein II (1895-1960) collaborated with composers Jerome Kern, Vincent Youmans, Rudolf Friml, and Sigmund Romberg; but his most famous collaboration, as we know, was with Richard Rodgers after Rodgers’ earlier career collaborating with lyricist Lorenz Hart (18951943) who brought great character vulnerability and highly poetic verses to his painful lyrics that contain great depth and understanding of human nature. Isidore Hochberg (1896-1981) known as E.Y. (Yip) Harburg, wrote the lyrics for Bloomer Girl, Finian’s Rainbow, Flahooley (which introduced Barbara Cook to

Broadway) and Jamaica, as well as all of the songs in The Wizard of Oz, brought even more wit and humor to lyric writing, adding to the puns and cleverness of Gilbert, Porter, Berlin and Gershwin. Broadway lyric word play reached its peak with Alan Jay Lerner (My Fair Lady, Camelot). No one has Sheldon Harnick pinpointed when the Golden Age of Musicals ended. Though Fred Ebb continued writing into the 90s, this kind of lyric writing could be said to have culminated with Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Herman. THeatre at West SHore Station Moving forward from Alan Jay Lerner, Harnick continued to create songs that were even more heavily character driven yet still full of clever word play and unequaled alliterations in his three pre-Fiddler musicals, Fiorello, Tenderloin, She Loves Me Ed Romanoff (and later The Apple Tree and The Rothschilds). But for Fiddler on the Roof he plays second fiddle to his partner Jerry Bock whose music for Fiddler is generally given more prominence (“longer shrift”) than

Harnick’s lyrics. Starring Ed Romanoff as Tevye and Mary Ellen Nelligar as his loving and patient wife Golde, directed by Joyce A. Presutti, with associate director and choreographer Andrews Mary Ellen Glant-Linden and musical Nelligar director Scott R. Test, Just Off Broadway Inc. is presenting Fiddler on the Roof from July 11-28 at the Theatre at West Shore Station, 27 South Water Street, Newburgh. For tickets, call 845-565-3791. ForestburgH PlayHouse Whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, there’s no reason to miss the fun! If you don’t like to be out too late, Forestburgh Playhouse presents PRE-show cabarets with a delicious buffet dinner every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening at 6:00pm. Still a night owl? Friday and Saturday night they present POST-show cabarets - with special favorites included in the Late Night Cabaret Menu. The Playhouse has welcomed Jill Padua, caterer and former owner of the awardwinning Jill’s Kitchen and the original Chatterbox Café of Narrowsburg. Her talent for making her customers happy has given

her a reputation for being creative as well as offering up delicious meals. A few menu items she is well known for are her Spanakopita, Sesame Noodles, and TurkeyCranberry Wrap. Jerry Herman Though songs like Hello Dolly, If He Walked into My Life and I Am What I Am are what Jerry Herman is most well-known for, he also continued in the Lerner-type lyric tradition with musicals such as Mame, Mack and Mabel and La Cage aux Folles for which he conceived character driven, clever lyrics, inspired never-before rhymed words, and brilliant word play. Hello Jerry! at Forestburgh Playhouse, July 2-13 is the cabaret show with Dolly Parton’s Nine to Five on the Main Stage. July 16-27 features a Doo-Wop cabaret (with Spamalot on the Main Stage) and from July 30-August 11, running with Grease, is a fun cabaret based on a musical sing-off between good and evil: Broadway songs from heroes and villains, heroines and villainesses. Don’t forget to make your reservations for before-or-after viewing of the Main Stage show. Call 845-794-1194. You’ll be happy you did.

Kirson in Eldred for The Laugh Tour

Comedian Jessica Kirson’s unique style and stage presence captures the attention of audiences and club bookers everywhere she performs. Her wide variety of characters brings a diverse energy to her routine. Kirson grew up in South Orange, New Jersey and attended the University of Maryland. She was in social work before she considered comedy as a career. “My mother is a therapist. She had clients in the house, so I always had to be quiet. I was like Anne Frank in my own house,” says Kirson. She has performed on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, seasons 2 and 3, NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and is coming back to Sullivan County and performing for The Laugh Tour, this time at Henning’s Local at the Eldred Preserve.
