ARTery Gallery, Milford: “Picking Up the Pieces”

“Dolls” by Bill Rabsey

The ARTery Gallery’s September exhibit, Picking Up the Pieces, brings together the work of creative designer Bill Rabsey, painter and collage artist Liza J. Smith-Simpson, and printmaker Carol M. Mainardi. Rabsey enjoys working with various metals in all types of conditions and shapes. Often his creations contain “found objects” that he’s discovered during his travels. Even a rusting and weathered object might catch Bill’s eye because he’s drawn to its texture, color, or shape. These elements or “pieces” form the raw material for Bill’s structural designs which he turns into wall art or freestanding creative statements. Creativity has always been second nature to Bill, who watched his grandfather paint and draw as a commercial artist. Smith-Simpson has painted since she

2022-2023 MISU Season Begins: New Classes and Two Concerts Music Institute of Sullivan & Ulster (MISU) and its Music On Market 20222023 concert series is off to an exciting start! “MISU has just hired a Suzuki instructor and a percussion instructor! We will be opening our doors again to begin the school year and have new teachers and therefore we’re offering new courses,” said MISU’s Anastasia Solberg. “Both children and adults, ages 3-99, are invited to take violin, viola, bass, guitar and piano classes and/or play in the community orchestra.” Jill Pruitt has taught violin in Suzuki programs in both Maine and Vermont before transitioning to a more individualized style of teaching based on what the children learning violin respond to best. She also offers lessons for students looking to improve their skills in orchestra. Paul Chambers is a percussionist and educator from Kingston, currently front ensemble director of the championship winning Arlington High School Marching Band and Winter Percussion Ensemble, and is in demand as a performer throughout the Hudson Valley. Paul won a position in the inaugural World Percussion Group of 2016, and

is an avid performer, researcher, and clinician of traditional African music. He studied abroad in Ghana on three separate occasions and, in 2016, was awarded a Fulbright grant to document and study traditional music in South Africa. The resulting research is published in the academic journal, African Music. Music on Market also offers an informal Coffeehouse Concert series in addition to regular concerts. Alana Wyld serves up blues with a generous side order of rhythm, heart and soul. Her menu is rich, reflecting a variety of Alana Wyld influences from classic and Texas blues, rock, boogie, R&B - even splashes of country flavor. From smooth blues grooves to full throttle overdrive, Wyld’s uncompromising passion as a songwriter, guitarist, and performer is the heart and soul of the music. Extreme musicianship and driving a high-energy performance takes traditional blues, boogie and blues-rock in a new direction. Blues-driven guitar

The Bush Brothers Perform in Walden

power combines with powerful vocals that transition from sweet, melodic and moving to outright grit and grind - a generous helping of fiery, ardent harp and funk-laced driving rhythmic attacks form the uniquely dynamic edge that defines Wyld’s compelling sound. A prolific and accomplished writer, her undeniable songwriting skills landed her two spots on the American Blues compilation album for Live Aid International based in Rome, Italy. A non-profit project, the proceeds support cultural and blues music education for children in developing nations. Wyld’s Music on Market Coffeehouse Concert is on September 3, at 7:30pm. Tickets at the door. Based out of Boston, 13 O’Clock takes its audience on a swirling musical journey harnessing the Fibonacci series and tuning to the harmonics of nature. A fusion of musical styles brings 13 O’Clock to the crossroads of blues, jazz, rock and the Justly Tuned Beyond inviting its audience into a deep musical experience. Fronted by microtonal guitarist and composer Jon Catler and multifaceted vocalist Babe Borden, they have been collaborating musically since 1994

13 O’Clock

when they met in New York City where Catler worked with the GrandDaddy of Minimalism, La Monte Young while Borden launched onto the European tour of Jim Rado’s American tribal rock musical, HAIR. In 2019, Catler and Borden christened WildHouse Studio on the south shore of Boston where they opened their doors to progressive artists of all sorts. Drummer Skip Fischer is a favorite of the Boston rock scene playing with artists like James Montgomery, while bassist Chris Roy’s career has spanned the U.S. as far as L.A. where he was the house bassist at the famed Baked Potato. This combustible act is not to be missed! They’ll be at MISU, 40 Market Street, Ellenville, on September 15 at 7:30pm. Tickets at the door.

“Belfast Girls” in So. Fallsburg

On a ship bound from Belfast to Sydney in 1850, five young women seek to become “mistresses of their own destiny.” Some find they cannot escape the Mekayla Rayne nightmare of the lives they are leaving behind. In the late 1840s, men largely outnumbered women in Australia, and there were not enough people entering the labor force. At the same time, the Great Famine in Ireland had left many young women destitute. Earl Grey, the British Secretary of State for the Colonies, sent “morally pure” girls aged 14-18 to Australia through the Female Orphan Emigration Scheme. All told,

between 1848-1850, 4,114 girls voluntarily boarded 20 ships to make the four-month journey and start new lives in Sydney, Adelaide, and Jaki McCarrick Melbourne. Belfast Girls by Jaki McCarrick was developed at the National Theatre Studio in London in 2012 and was shortlisted for the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn and the 2014 BBC Tony Doyle Awards. Directed by Mekayla Rayne, the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop will present Belfast Girls September 9-18 at the Rivoli Theater, 5243 Main Street, So. Fallsburg. 845 436-5336.

Musical Tribute to Ukraine at Pacem in Terris & Quartet Piece by McCartney

“The Serenade Quartet returns! What a wonderful concert this will be: Music by Haydn, Mozart and Bartok as well as Ukrainian Hymns, and more. A celebration - because we can!,” announced Krista Bennion Feeney. “Historically, a serenade (or divertimento) quartet consisted of two violins, viola and double bass, a configuration making for a broader palate of sounds and fills spaces, whether indoors or outdoors, with a warmth and fullness that is visceral, celebratory and thoroughly engaging.” The Serenade Quartet was founded in 2010, and has been delighting audiences with a virtuosity, style and robust sound that sets them apart from other quartets. Jessica Troy (viola) regularly performs with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, New York City Opera, Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, & Mark Morris Dance Group Music Ensemble. Equally comfortable on the stages of Carnegie Hall and the set of Saturday Night Live, violinist Keats Dieffenbach serves as violist of The Cramer Quartet and is a member of Orchestra of St. Luke’s and Mark Morris Dance Group

Music Ensemble. From 1979-1992 Krista Bennion Feeney (violin) was the founding member and first violinist of the Ridge String Quartet, recipients of the Diapason d’Or award and nominated for a Grammy for their recording of the Dvorak Piano Quintets with Rudolf Firkusny. She has served as concertmaster of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s since 1983. John Feeney is principal double bass of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the American Classical Orchestra and Opera Lafayette. A chamber musician and soloist of renown, he is first prize-winner of the

Concert Artists Guild and ZimmermanMingus International Competitions, & medalist-prize winner of the Geneva and Isle of Man Competitions. On September 4 at 5:00pm, the Quartet will perform a divertimento by Mozart, a string quartet by Haydn, Bartok’s Rumanian Folk Dances, and three short works by Ukrainian composers Mykola Lysenko (18421912) and Mischa Elman (1891-1967). Lysenko is often credited with founding a national music tradition during the Ukrainian national revival, in the vein of contemporaries such as Grieg in Norway, and the Russian Five, as well as Smetana and Dvořák in what is now the Czech Republic. His musical setting of a patriotic poem by Oleksandr Konysky, known as the Prayer for Ukraine, has become Ukraine’s spiritual anthem.

Krista Bennion-Feeney writes: “About a week ago I asked Paul McCartney for permission and his blessing to perform Haymakers and Midwife (the quartet he wrote for my Loma Mar Sir James Paul Quartet in 1999) McCartney CH MBE with bass instead of (b.1942) cello at our September 4 concert at Pacem (and another concert we have October 2 in Pleasantville). I just received an email from Paul this morning saying he would be SO happy to have us perform his pieces and that he likes the idea of having John play the cello part on the bass. “The former Beatle has enjoyed a surprisingly lengthy and successful postmop-top career as a composer of classical music. His first foray came in 1991 when he composed a work for the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra which told a musical story loosely based on his own life. The resulting 8-movement piece was a huge hit, topping the classical charts. After that, McCartney’s growth as a composer became ever more complex and interesting.”

Jazz vocalist Judi Silvano has recorded her own original songs in addition to classic standard songs in ensembles from duo (her 2014 release with Michael Abene: My Dance, and another with Mal Waldron: Riding a Zephyr) to trio (voice, piano and trumpet: Indigo Moods) to quartet (Women’s Work and Cleome), quintet (Songs I Wrote Or Wish I Did) and sextet (her 2018 most recent release, Lessons Learned). Musician, vocalist, songwriter, educator, and producer Teri Roiger began playing piano at age 5, and played church organ throughout her teens. When she discovered jazz in her early 20s - and soon after made her first demo with the legendary stride pianist, Butch Thompson - her musical path was set. Jazz guitarist Bruce Arnold’s passionate pursuit of new ideas and applications for his beloved six-string instrument has taken him to the hallowed halls of Princeton University, where he is on the faculty. Fred Jacobs is a trumpeter, composer and educator and has toured with jazz greats such as Lionel Hampton, Buddy Rich, Sam Jones/Tom

Harrell Band, Eddie Palmieri, Jimmy McGriff, Pucho and the Latin Soul Brothers. After having worked for several years on the Canadian Jazz scene, bassist John Menegon went on to hone his skills in NYC in the mid-80s. Since then John has performed, recorded, composed and toured with countless musicians. Lamy Istrefi is a drummer, percussionist and composer who was born in Kosovo, where he started playing percussion instruments of his native folk music at the age of 13. His interest in jazz music led, at the age of 16, to his enrollment at the University of Music and Dramatic Arts in Austria, where he studied drums/percussion. Retired public school music teacher and professional saxophonist since 1978, Mike Antonelli has always been passionate about sharing his love of music with those around him to combine the lessons of music with the lessons of life. These Jazz stalwarts make up Judi Silvano’s Zephyr Band, and they will perform at the Brewery at Orange County Hops, 771 Route 52, Walden, on September 4 from 2:00pm-4:00pm.

Grahamsville: Happy Herbs Soap Soap got its name from an ancient Roman legend about Mount Sapo. Rain would wash down the mountain mixing with animal fat and ashes, resulting in a clay mixture found to make cleaning easier. By the 7th century, soap-making was an established art in Italy, Spain and France. Soap opera is actually an Americanism dating back to 1935-50 - so named, because radio dramas were sponsored by soap manufacturers. Happy Herbs Soap, of Two Crow Cottage in Burlingham, participates in many area events and Farmer’s Markets where people seek out owner Anita “Nina” Casamento’s fragrant, herbal, hand-made soaps. “Vegetable oils, infused with my own herbs, are the heart of my cold process

soap. These herbs, along with exotic roots and resins are mixed for my incense. Visit me at events on the Grahamsville Fairgrounds and at local farmers markets!,” says Nina. Nina’s next stop? Grahamsville’s Tractor Fest on September 17 & 18. And then you can visit her and smell her fragrant soaps and magickal incense during the Giant Pumpkin Party & Children’s Parade the annual fundraiser for Grahamsville’s Daniel Pierce Library. Admission, parking, participation in the parade and costume march, and access to the musical entertainment are free. Food and refreshments are available for purchase.

Greater Newburgh Symphony Opens 2022/23 Season

The Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra (GNSO) opens its 28th season with a colorful concert themed After the Rain, featuring works by Beethoven, Judith Weir and Christopher Theofanidis, GNSO Music Director Russell Ger said, “Rain has long been my favorite natural element. It is so cleansing to see and hear the roar of water pouring from the sky, nourishing and nurturing all life. It is no wonder that composers have been inspired to incorporate it into their music. “Beethoven creates a wonderfully vivid storm in his Sixth Symphony, replete with audio lighting, and followed by a warm hymn of thanksgiving after its passing. Weir imagines an exuberant and dazzling soundscape, lush in its colorations and cascading torrent of notes, which she said reminded her of the onset of the monsoon season in India. Theofanidis produces a piece based on the Buddhist notion of a Rainbow Body, where the physical form of an enlightened being is absorbed back into the universe upon its death. It is wonderfully uplifting and a beautiful metaphorical conclusion to the concert.” Maestro Ger also noted that “this

concert exemplifies our desire to treat our wonderful audience to both classical favorites and exciting new pieces by lesser-known composers. This has long been a goal of the League of American Orchestras and we are proud that our musicians can rise to the occasion!” Beethoven, a lover of nature, said that his Sixth Symphony is “more the expression of feeling than painting.” The symphony has five, rather than the usual four movements. Each movement has a programmatic title, rare for his time. Frank A. D’Accone suggested that Beethoven borrowed the programmatic ideas (a shepherd’s pipe, birds singing, streams flowing, and a thunderstorm) for his five-movement narrative layout from Le Portrait musical de la Nature

ou Grande Symphonie, composed by Justin Heinrich Knecht in 1784. Judith Weir CBE (b.1954) is a British composer and the first female Master of the Queen’s Music. Weir’s musical language is fairly conservative, with a knack of making simple musical ideas appear freshly mysterious. She was commissioned by the Minnesota Orchestra for her work, The Welcome Arrival of Rain. Rainbow Body by Christopher Theofanidis (b.1967) was commissioned by the Houston Symphony. The piece is dedicated to the Texas lawyer and philanthropist Glen Rosenbaum, and is one of Theofanidis’ most-performed compositions. It won the 2003 London Masterprize competition. After the Rain will be presented September 10 at 7:30pm at Aquinas Hall, 330 Powell Avenue, Newburgh. For tickets: www.newburghsymphony. org or call 845-913-7157. Students are admitted free to open seating.

Needlework Demo

Needlework is defined as decorative sewing using a needle for construction. The variety of the many types of needlework is endless and timeless limited only by the imagination of the creator. Historically, samplers were intended to teach young women to sew, and used as well to teach young girls to memorize their alphabet and numbers, and a tool to teach moral values and memorize verses from the bible. On September 18 at 3:00pm, the Town of Deerpark Museum, 25 Grange Road, Huguenot, will feature a free program and demonstration about the history of needlework by Barbara Johnson, a gifted needlework artisan, known for her exquisite counted cross stitch samplers, some of which will be on display along with her other needlework. With the resurgence of interest in counted cross stitch in the 1960s, Johnson began teaching classes in the art of creating original embroidered historical art work. She will demonstrate some of her techniques during the program. This free program is made possible by funding from the Deerpark Heritage Fund. For additional information, call 845-856-2702 or 845-754-8070.

Jeanne MacDonald Returns to Bradstan Cabaret Series In 1984 Scott Samuelson began working as a singing bartender and discovered the world of cabaret and fell in love with the intimate style. Scott and Edward Dudek opened the cabaret room at Bradstan Country Hotel in White Lake in 1991, and they now host The Bradstan Coming Home Cabaret Series at The Eldred Preserve.

Zoom in to Become a Better Writer Would you like to be a better writer? How do you make a purposeful choice of vocabulary and tone into your writings? Using figurative language and imagery and most of all, showing your personality and passion in a compelling way empowers your creativity. Cuban-American poet and novelist, Cristina Garcia, will describe her method in her workshop/master class entitled, Cultivating Chaos: Craft Talk/ Workshop on September 26 from Noon to 2pm. During the afternoon session, she will discuss Craft Talk as “strategies for coaxing the strange, ineluctable, jagged-edged power of the wonderfully, dangerously unexpected into making a lasting, vivid difference in our writing.” She believes in “encouraging our work to unspool in unpredictable, organic ways; to welcome what surprises and disturbs us; and too harness wildness without domesticating its energies.” Garcia has had a varied career in writing having worked as a reporter for the Knoxville Journal, and then as a reporter and researcher, correspondent and bureau chief for Time Magazine. When she left journalism, she transitioned to

writing fiction full-time, a genre which she has embraced while writing seven novels and three books for young readers. She also has a collection of poetry to her credit, and she has edited two anthologies. And she is a playwright as well. García holds a BA in Political Science from Barnard College, and an MA in International Relations from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. Her work has been nominated for a National Book Award and translated into 15 languages. She has been honored with a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Hodder Fellowship at Princeton University, and an NEA grant, among others. She also has served as Professor and University Chair in Creative Writing at Texas State University-San Marcos. Since she now lives in northern California, Garcia will come to us via Zoom.

patron, Archduke Rudolf, and consists of only two contrasting movements. The second movement is marked as an arietta with variations. Thomas Mann called it “farewell to the sonata form.” Rhythmically visionary and technically demanding, it is one of the most discussed of Beethoven’s works. Le Tombeau de Couperin (The Couperin’s Tomb) is a suite for solo piano composed between 1914 and 1917. The piece is based on those of a traditional Baroque suite. Each movement is dedicated to the memory of a friend of the composer (or in one case, two brothers) who had died fighting in World War I. The word “tombeau” in the title is a musical term popular from the 17th century, meaning “a piece written as a memorial.” The specific Couperin that Ravel intended to evoke is thought to be François Couperin “the Great” (16681733). Ravel stated that his intention was to pay homage more generally to the sensibilities of the Baroque French keyboard suite, not necessarily to imitate or pay tribute to Couperin himself in particular.

12 Plays in 2 Evenings at SLPAC The annual OC International TenMinute Play Festival marks its return after two years of absence due to the pandemic. 434 playwrights submitted new, unpublished scripts. A distinguished judging committee consisting of theater professionals has selected plays that show originality and style. Twelve plays are being presented on alternating evenings. The plays run the gamut of comedic styles. Whether satire or farce, highbrow or lowbrow, these plays were selected to make us laugh! Featuring actors in a variety of plays, playing multiple roles adds another element of excitement. “The selection process this year was rigorous,” said Paul Ellis co-producer. “We had over 400 submissions from as far away as the Philippines and New Zealand, and as close as Washingtonville. There were so many good plays it wasn’t easy to pick these twelve.” Directed by Ellis, Gloria Bonelli and Paige Dillon, the winning plays and performance schedule is as follows: Program # 1: September 9 at 7:30pm and September 10 at 3:00pm. This program includes Monroe playwright Dan McNamara’s A Monkey Escaped the Lab. Program # 2: September 8 at 7:30pm and September 10 at 7:30pm. The Festival is produced by PEP Productions, a professional theater production company whose past productions include The Air Pirates Radio Theater, Confabulation and The Actors Workshop Ensemble. Actors include Bruce Gluckman, Fiona Hill, Susan Mormile, Ray Aponte, Bettina Skye, Erika Genovese,

Painting, Drawing, Printing & Photography in Youngsville Works in painting, drawing, eco printing, and photography will be on view at Domesticities for an exhibit featuring Miriam Hernandez, Marjorie Morrow, Alexis Siroc and Gail Tuchman titled, Four/For: Supporting artistic expression as a democratic principle. “Some of the artwork will address political themes but it is really a presentation of how artistic expression is a freedom, a “democratic principle” as per our subtitle,” explained Marjorie. “It represents what we, as artists, are FOR...and we’ve tried to remain positive about that in this fraught political environment. A portion of any sales will be donated to the Sullivan County Democratic Committee.” Miriam Hernandez started her art training in high school at age 14 and continued her art education in college and graduate school. “Putting hands and tools to a receptive surface, I employ the creative process as a way to mark time and events, in order to confirm my own impermanence. The goals and methodologies of my life, as an individual and as an artist, merge and blossom as I continue to draw on influences from political events, environmental concerns, and Buddhist symbology. “My work continues to change as

I let go of the work already created, not wanting to repeat myself, aware of its fragility, and of our own fragile existence,” states Hernandez.

She focuses on developing special projects and collaborations, including a multi-part 9/11 collaboration with Drew University and the John Street Church, NYC. Her ArtOrbit® is an online presentation she created featuring collectors of her work and is available on her website. While abstract, her work is inspired by diverse sources - music, literature, and the contemporary cultural and political environments.

As the free outdoor summer concerts around the Hudson Valley come to a close, the Town of Chester’s Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center will offer free indoor concerts, Thursdays at 6:30pm. The four September concerts begin with Backstage Pass, a high energy tribute band that delivers an arena style rock n’ roll show that will have you cheering for encore after encore, and end with Parrot Beach (pictured), who spread Jimmy Buffett’s laid-back tropical attitude covering the singer’s catalog while bringing their own unique flavor to the mix. See calendar page 18 for listings. www.sugarloafpac.com

Newburgh Chamber Music Celebrates 20th Anniversary! Join the internationally-acclaimed Harlem Quartet for a concert celebrating the 20th anniversary of Newburgh Chamber Music (NCM). “During our 20 years we have presented a rich repertoire of classical and contemporary music, drawing on the talents of widely-acclaimed musicians in the Hudson Valley and beyond,” said Carole Cowan, founder and music director of NCM. “This will be the fourth time that the Harlem Quartet will perform for us. We are so happy to have them back for this special occasion.” The quartet draws on a wide range of composers and eras, from baroque to modern, from jazz to Afro-Cuban, for its repertoire. This concert will include string quartets by Fannie Mendelssohn Hensel, Benjamin Britten, Dizzy Gillespie, Caroline Shaw, and Guido López-Gavilán. “It is hard to believe that Fanny Hensel needed a “craftsman’s approval” from her famous brother Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy in order to be allowed to publish some of her compositions under her own name.” - Fick’s Music.

“Into the Night” in Narrowsburg Artists were asked to share their unique vision of what happens when the sun sets. Some took a literal approach, finding beauty in the natural world after dark. Others found dialogue in events and celebration focusing on the human element as night fell. More still found a connection with the ethereal, energetic, and surreal as they worked in the darkened hours.

All perspectives were valid, inspiring and individual to the artist, creating a dynamic and creative group showing capturing the essence of what it means to go Into the Night. Curated by Jodi Sibilia, Into the Night is on view weekends through September 24 at Narrowsburg Union, 7 Erie Avenue. Visit NarrowsburgUnion.com

Venezuela to Canada, from Japan to South Africa. The ensemble has been praised for its “panache” by the New York Times and hailed in the Cincinnati Enquirer for “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent.” It has also won plaudits from such veteran musicians as Grammy-winning woodwind virtuoso Ted Nash of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, who declared in a May 2018 Playbill article, “Harlem Quartet is one of the greatest string quartets I have ever heard. They can play anything.” The Quartet members bring a broad range of backgrounds and experience. All have performed in major concert venues and with leading artists, from classical to jazz. The 20th Anniversary performance is on September 25 at 3:00pm in St. George’s Church, 105 Grand Street, Newburgh. Plenty of parking across the street in the library parking lot.

The Stylistics Perform in Middletown

The Stylistics were formed in Philadelphia in 1966 from the combination of two groups, “The Percussions” and “The Monarchs”. When members from each group were drafted into the Armed Services, the remaining members, under the guidance of their English teacher Beverly Hamilton, joined forces and changed the name to “The Stylistics”. After working locally for a few years, the group recorded their first song, You’re a Big Girl Now. The song was written by their guitarist at the time, Robert “Doc” Douglas and road manager, Marty Bryant. The song was soon picked up in the tri-state area, and before long, it became a #1 hit in Philadelphia and other cities. After the success of You’re A Big Girl Now, Avco Records wanted to follow up with an album release. Hit veteran producer Tom Bell was contacted and produced the group’s first album, and from that album came Stop, Look, Listen to your Heart, You Are Everything and Betcha By Golly Wow. The album’s

success was nothing short of phenomenal. The Stylistics were quickly becoming known as the Philly group with the sweet love songs. Friends since junior high school, Herbert Murrell and Airrion Love are the remaining original members of The Stylistics. Their newest lead singer, Grammy Award winning recording artist, Barrington “Bo” Henderson, began his professional career with groups such as The Dramatics and Lakeside. Later in his career, Henderson became lead singer of the world-renowned group, The Temptations. In 2018, The Stylistics celebrated their 50th anniversary and are going strong with Love, Murrell, Henderson and Jason Sharp. Together, they look forward to taking their musical journey to new heights. The Stylistics will perform at the Paramount Theatre, 17 South Street, Middletown, on September 10 at 8:00pm.

“Incorrigibles” thru Sep. 10, Newburgh Incorrigibles: Bearing Witness to the Incarcerated Girls of New York is a transmedia exhibit that gives voice to the untold stories of those sent to the New York Training School for Girls (19041975) throughout the 20th century. Located at Ann Street Gallery, 104 Ann Street, Newburgh, the Incorrigibles exhibit will be on view until September 10, (Saturdays & Sundays, 1:00pm5:00pm and by appt.) with closing events hosted throughout that day, September 10 from Noon-6:00pm, such as art workshops: wand-making, button-making, presentations by healers and historians, and much more. Ann Street Gallery Director Diana Mangaser stated, “With Newburgh being one of the main communities who sent ‘incorrigible’ girls to the Hudson School, it is a special honor for the gallery to host this exhibition in the heart of Newburgh’s downtown and share the Incorrigibles project with our community.” Cynthia Boykin, a Newburgh native who was sent to the Training School in the ‘70s, now works with the Incorrigibles team. She stated, “It’s been 50 years since my time at the Training School. This is an awakening for me, an opportunity to go back and reach the little girl I once was.

Incorrigibles was thrilled to have the exhibition contributors host workshops with Newburgh-based girls and women to exchange stories about youth incarceration & trauma healing practices. Contributors included (left to right): Kathleen Hulser, Alison Cornyn, Hilda O, Jackie Pucci, and Cynthia Boykin.

My story is one of many, so it is essential that our stories are told. Our voices need to be heard.” Cynthia and other women sent to the Training School participated in a community engagement workshop in July, connecting with young women through writing, art, and story sharing. A state-of-the-art audio recording booth has recently been installed at the gallery. The booth provides a space for visitors to leave their “Incorrigible” story; whether they were at the Training School, another institution, or just wish to leave their thoughts about what the exhibition’s stories bring up for them. The booth provides accessibility and privacy for those who, like Cynthia, may not have considered sharing their story until now. For more information: 845-541-5416.

Occupation Obfuscation What has become of the hairdressers, street cleaners, dressmakers and travel agents? Somehow we’ve become overrun with pompous job titles that camouflage what people actually do for a living. Here’s a recently compiled list of actual job titles: Print Traffic Associate, Non-profit Professional, Content Administrator, Owner Retention Department Manager, Dispatch Service Facilitator, Destination Counsellor and Loss Prevention Officer. Moreover, there are countless, very serious online tutorials for those who yearn to create such titles for their resumés and business cards. In The Long Run When England’s King George VI died in 1952, his daughter, Elizabeth, took over his royal duties and, 70 years later, still reigns as Queen of England. That same year, mystery writer Agatha Christie’s play, The Mousetrap, opened in London’s West End and can still be

An anachronism, one might think, until I read just now that it was Twain who created this baseball image: “He threw himself on his stomach to slide to his base. It was like an ironclad coming into port.” Julius Hare (1795-1855) offers this simile-rich advice for parents, teachers or any of us. “Discipline, like the bridle in the hand of a good rider, should exercise its influence without appearing to do so, should be ever active, both as a support and as a restraint, yet seem to lie easily in hand. It must always be ready to check or pull up, as occasion may require; and only when the horse is a runaway should the action of the curb be perceptible.”

Cornerstone Theatre Arts, Goshen: Pulitzer Playwright’s Play

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama, August Wilson (1945-2005), is best known for a series of ten plays, collectively called The Pittsburgh Cycle, which chronicle the experiences and heritage of the African-American community in the 20th century. Plays in the series include Fences (1987) and The Piano Lesson (1990), both of which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (1984) and Joe Turner’s Come and Gone (1988). The plays are each set in a different decade and aim to sketch the Black experience in the 20th century and raise consciousness through theater and echo the poetry in the everyday language of Black America. Wilson was born Frederick August Kittel, Jr. in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, the fourth of six children. His father, Frederick August Kittel, Sr., was a Sudeten German immigrant, and a baker/pastry cook. His mother, Daisy Wilson, was an African-American woman from North Carolina who cleaned homes for a living. His works delve into the African-American experience as well as examinations of the human condition, starting with Jitney (1982). Other themes range from

the systemic and historical exploitation of African Americans, as well as race relations, identity, migration, and racial discrimination. Viola Davis who starred in (“and gave a superb performance that I will never forget!” - Barry Plaxen) Wilson’s King Hedley II (1999) said that Wilson’s writing “captures our humor, our vulnerabilities, our tragedies, our trauma. And he humanizes us. And he allows us to talk.” Since Wilson’s death, two of his plays have been adapted into films: Fences (2016, starring Denzel Washington & Viola Davis) and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (2020). Denzel Washington has shepherded the films and has vowed to continue his legacy by adapting the rest of Wilson’s plays into films for a wider audience by saying, “The greatest part of what’s left of my career is making sure that August is taken care of.” The August Wilson Theatre (formerly the Guild Theatre, ANTA Theatre, and Virginia Theatre) is a Broadway theater at 245 West 52nd Street in Manhattan’s Theater District.

“Admissions” in Cornwall

Do our convictions apply in concept and only for others or across the board to include ourselves and those we love the most? Winner of the 2018 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Play, Admissions by Joshua Harmon (pictured) savagely examines this through one family. Progressive, white parents, Sherri Rosen-Mason and her husband, Bill, both work in education. She is the admissions officer at an elite boarding school. He is the headmaster. Although they proudly celebrate their labored efforts to increase acceptance rates of students of color from 6% to 18%, they bemoan that there is still so much work to be done. However, when their Ivy-league hopeful son, Charlie, faces rejection because of his privilege and race, their celebrations

of diversity, inclusion, and equity become much more difficult and are confronted with their inner hypocrite. Joshua Harmon (b. 1983) is a NYC-based playwright. His plays have been produced on Broadway, off-Broadway, on the West End and internationally in a dozen countries. Founded in February 2021, VetRep is a non-profit theater dedicated to bringing talented veterans and world-class artists and performers together under one roof to create compelling live theater and events. VetRep’s Staged Readings Series are held in a Parlor located on the first floor of an 1890s-era home directly across the street from DeCicco’s Grocery.

WRS: “Life and Love: Paintings by Clayton Buchanan” These days when pastelist Clayton Buchanan puts pen to paper it is to make poetry rather than the visual images he has long been known for. “Since Clayton has transitioned from a visual artist to a poet and writer, I am pleased that we can give gallery visitors a chance to see a selection of his paintings, drawn from his many years as an artist, in a single exhibit,” effused Sarah Fortner Pierson, executive director of the Wallkill River School (soon to be Wallkill River Center for the Arts). “I had long been fascinated with the Impressionist color concept and sought those moments that come and go in the blink of an eye. They were a challenge to capture,” recalls Buchanan. “Many of these figurative paintings are those moments, frozen in time, that capture life in movement, and give us a chance to recognize that fleeting beauty of light and color so easily lost forever,” stated Buchanan, about the works in the exhibit. Pastels are Buchanan’s medium. Brilliant colors, applied layer upon layer, mixed on the painting surface with energized strokes, enhance his visual imagery. His paintings are in private and

corporate collections in the United States and Canada. He has done numerous portrait commissions throughout the Northeast and South and regularly conducted demonstrations and workshops. He has won various awards on a regional and national level, and maintained a studio in Newburgh. Pierson concludes, Clayton Buchanan speaking at one of his many workshops. “Clayton’s work is well known locally, since it has regularly been featured on the covers of Hudson Valley Parent Magazine (and CANVAS, too!). We are happy to say that Wallkill River School will have a group of paintings from Parent magazine covers on offer via silent auction.” For information email: info@ wallkill.art “Potrait of a Lady” by Clayton Buchanan The once painter now poet takes us back for a look at his Life and from September 2 to October 9.

Neo Expressionism, Realism, & Sculpture in Port Jervis

“Chariot Race” by Gordon Graff

For UpFront Exhibition Space’s Fall Group Show, Rosalind “Roz” Hodgkins is showing a mini-retrospective of her 1980s Neo Expressionist paintings. The works are done on paper and executed in oil stick, pastel and pencil. The manner and furious palette explode in a fast and loose style with figurative elements dancing in and out of focus among the slashed paint strokes. By the 1990s, Hodgkins’ geometric abstraction paintings in gouache, also in this show, have became quiet, contemplative studies. These paintings appear to symbolize conversations between forms in a defined space. Her use of light and color with energized brush strokes create aesthetic dramas. Daniela “Dani” Cooney approaches her figurative paintings with a careful practiced eye. She chooses subjects that

“Day by The Delaware” by Daniela Cooney

resonate with her whether it is a local landscape, an animal or a flower - she is meticulous in her execution. The overall brushwork is smooth and detailed. Her ways of seeing often break out of realism and wander into abstraction with playful colors and forms. She is continually expanding her range of skill. Gordon Graff’s sculpture is a convergence of utility and art, the origins of the parts in each piece come with a cultural and worked history that Gordon expands into a composition of fiction. By placing these disparate objects together, they become characters in a conversation or drama, speaking from their cultural, utilitarian past. They ask

“E Base” by Roz Hodgkins

for interpretation by use of the viewer’s perception and imagination. Gordon has an active intuitive sense in his placement of these objects in his pieces while giving them a new life. The show is on view from September 2 to October 30. The public is invited to the artist’s reception on September 18, from 1:00pm-6:00pm at UpFront Exhibition Space, 31 Jersey Avenue, Port Jervis. For further info, call 845-754-1808.

Tavern: Skivvies The Skivvies are Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley, singer/actor/musicians performing stripped down arrangements of eclectic covers and eccentric originals. Not only is the music stripped down - cello, ukulele, glockenspiel, melodica - but the Skivvies literally strip down to their underwear to perform. The New York Times calls them “a hot musical comedy duo specializing in unexpected arrangements, incongruous mash-ups, and of course, highly toned displays of skin.” The scantily clad duo will be performing at the Forestburgh Tavern, 39 Forestburgh Road, on September 24 at 8:00pm. Doors open at 7:00pm for food and drink service. Complimentary cocktail is included with your ticket purchase. For tickets visit: www.forestburghtavern.com See ad page 32.
