“Mountain Orchard” by George Bellows

“Woodstock is a group of idealists…we do not vastly differ from the denizens of the city. We are selected from the city—that is all. Self-selected and of course, well selected.” —Hervey White, in the 1st issue of Plowshare

While women suffragettes were marching down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC for the right to vote and Grand Central Terminal had just opened, two other important events took place a century ago that would change lives. The 1913 show at the 69th Regiment Armory was organized by a small group of American artists in New York City to introduce avant-garde European work to a public that both applauded and criticized it. Perhaps the single most important art event in the history of American art, the exhibit brought new ways of seeing, introducing abstract art, Cubism, Fauvism, Futurism, all -isms. For artists of the time, it was a revelation. Complacency was shattered and a modern era had begun.

Many Armory Show exhibitors had ties to Woodstock and/or became “Woodstock” artists

“Rocks” by Bolton Brown

Many Armory Show exhibitors had ties to Woodstock and/or became “Woodstock” artists. Alexander Archipenko, George Bellows, Bolton Brown, Myra Musselman Carr, Andrew Dasburg, Robert Henri, Grace Mott Johnson, Gaston Lachaise and Jules Pascin were among those who exhibited in this sensational show on Lexington Avenue and 26th Street. An editorial in The New York Times the day after the show closed reported, 3


“It should be borne in mind that this movement is… to disrupt and degrade, if not to destroy, not only art, but literature and society, too.” Others thought it the most thrilling event of the time and a great force for the development of humans, setting fire to the spirit. Woodstock had been established 10 years earlier as an Arts and Crafts artists’ colony when Byrdcliffe (now the oldest running art colony in the United States) was formed by Ralph Radcliffe Whitehead, Hervey White and Bolton Brown. The Art Students League of New York summered in Woodstock and Hervey White started another artists’ colony, the Maverick, in 1905, which today celebrates 98 years of chamber music concerts in the woods. In 1913 Ralph Whitehead called a group together to form the Woodstock Club and that became the library. His 10-year-old art colony had begun to disperse and writer Walter Weyl with his wife Bertha Poole had left Byrdcliffe to build their own house nearby. They, along with Carl Lindin and his wife, Louise Starr, and Dr. Mortimer Downer with his wife, Lillian, agreed to select charter members from the community for a first meeting. Artists and villagers turned out in great numbers and they collected $40.

During the summer season, many residents had been taking in “paying guests” who had traveled several hours from New York City by ferry, train and/or open bus drawn by a pair of horses on the long, sooty ride. Henry Ford had made his first assembly-line car in 1913, but owning a car was a luxury few could afford. The Story of a Small Town Library by Frances Rogers with an introduction by Alf Evers describes in detail the history of the development of the Woodstock Library. This year, the library will be building a much-needed annex, creating an environment for the community across Library Lane, on Tannery Brook. Curl up in a comfortable chair, read Hervey White, Alf Evers or Charlotte Perkins Gilman (who was a frequent visitor at Byrdcliffe) and be transported to 1913 life in Woodstock. — Pat Horner Pat Horner Reidunn Fraas

Andrew Dasburg

One hundred years ago, the thriving Woodstock Colony of the Arts was perfectly aligned to influence and be influenced by the most impactful art event of the 20th century—the 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art, better known as the Armory Show. The nowinfamous exhibition, created by a small cadre of artists with revolution on their minds, displayed over 1300 works of avant-garde European and American art including paintings by Woodstock artists George Bellows and Andrew Dasburg and sculptures by Alexander Archipenko. To say that the American public was shocked by the radical, incomprehensible work of Marcel Duchamp, Henri Matisse and Constantin Brancusi would be an understatement. The critics were universally appalled. With its monochromatic palette, Matisse’s “Red Studio” seemed freakishly incomplete to conventional eyes. And Duchamp’s Cubist tour de force, “Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2,” was derided by an especially perturbed critic as “an explosion in a shingle factory.” Audience and cultural arbiters alike rained disdain upon the radical show, citing its “eccentricities, whimsicalities, distortions… and madness.” Yet the 1913 Armory Show was far more than a bold spectacle of aesthetic culture shock. It stood at the vanguard of a truly revolutionary impulse, favoring the individual artist as the sole arbiter of meaning, artists that no longer gave sway to the staid and stultified academicians that held a stranglehold on artistic taste and value. One of the instigators of the Armory Show—Woodstock artist George Bellows—was instrumental in establishing


new opportunities for artists to exhibit unconventional, innovative work. When the Armory Show organizers sent out their open invitation for American artists to exhibit, they flew in the face of conventional standards, seeking out “nonprofessional as well as professional artists to exhibit the result of any selfexpression in any medium.” The result was an unprecedented exhibition blending and contrasting the works of both traditional and Modern artists. This recognition—that all styles of art could exist and thrive side by side—has informed the art colonists of Woodstock since its inception. The more traditional forces of the Byrdcliffe Colony have been shaped and influenced by the progressive exploits of the Maverick and vice versa, forging the dynamic art scene that characterizes Woodstock to this very day. The aesthetic impact of the Armory Show, most particularly the influence of PostImpressionism, Cubism and Fauvism, would be felt and seen in Woodstock studios and galleries for decades to come. The stylistic impulses of Woodstockers George Bellows, the realist master of the Ashcan Style, and early Cubist experimenter Andrew Dasburg, took flight in the wake of the Armory Show. The bold color, steamlined forms and loose brushwork of the European Modernists found their way onto their canvases and into their classrooms. In the decade to follow, Post-Impressionist painter Konrad Cramer would join sculptor William Hunt Diederich in advancing a streamlined Modernism in

their work. And the rise of the Abstractionist “Rock City Rebels,” Dasburg, Cramer and Henry Lee McFee, kept the new spirit of the Armory Show alive in their enthusiastic experimentation with Analytic and Synthetic Cubism. Karen St. Pierre

The Armory Show drew an unprecedented 75,000 patrons in New York and launched the age of Modern Art in America. A true American creation, the show itself was nothing less than an extravaganza of vision and idealism on the part of a small band of revolutionaries. Utilizing a symbol of the American Revolution, a Pre-Modern pine tree, on their promotional flyers and as part of the decor of the cavernous exhibition hall, the Armory Show was fully intended and fully succeeded in establishing a “New Spirit,” a progressive art movement which flew in the face of a reactionary past. Throughout the 20th and into the 21st century, the Woodstock Art Colony has grown and now thrives in homage to the open-minded, undeterred forces of cultural and political change that the 1913 Armory Show embodied. Its descendants are the creative spirits and cutting-edge makers who are the lifeblood of our village and home. From the world-changing 1969 Woodstock Festival, to the multitude of galleries, studios, theatres, festivals and cultural events that define Woodstock, the New Spirit of the 1913 Armory Show lives on! — Karen St. Pierre 9


THE WOODSTOCK LIBRARY:

100 Years of Books & Democracy

Thomas Whigham

This year Woodstock is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the beginning of its library. In 1913, Ralph Whitehead, Walter Weyl and Dr. Mortimer Downer formed the Woodstock Club to establish a fund for a nurse (made necessary after the flu epidemic) and to create a library. Walter Weyl was a political philosopher who co-founded The New Republic Magazine. He was a protégé of John Mitchell of the United Mine Workers of America and follower of the Populist Robert La Follette. He opposed the robber barons in his book The New Democracy, asserting that the “engine of taxation [which was newly enacted] . . . will be used to accomplish great social ends among which will be the more equal distribution of wealth and income.” He expressed the hope that Progressivism would spark the evolution of Democracy to Socialism. It is no wonder that Paul Krugman, New York Times economist, recently called Weyl his intellectual great-grandfather. Weyl met Bertha Poole (labor organizer/socialite), whom Whitehead brought to Byrdcliffe from Hull House in Chicago. They settled on a farm in Woodstock and began transforming this community into a unique place where ideas are as important as food and water, which led to their work to establish a library. By 1917, 20 volumes were taken out in a day. In 1919 on his death, Weyl bequeathed to the Woodstock Club money to purchase a permanent home for the library, which was completed in 1927. The land and building that it is occupying today was later deeded from the club to the library in 1934. In the librarian’s office a brass plaque hangs to attest to his generosity. 10


Mrs. Walter Weyl continued to be at the library and helped make it an egalitarian enterprise, offering residents access to books they could not afford. In the 1940s the first addition to the building was completed and in 1955 the “Book Barn” was erected. In the 1980s further renovations created the space we see today. In this centenary year the library will be moving to the next phase with its acquisition of the former laundromat across the street. This will

be a building for the 21st-century mind with adequate space for programs and forums, access to technology with classes and a mobile computing lab and more. Walter Weyl’s forward thinking in forming the Woodstock Club helped nurture the “democratic” spirit of Woodstock. His railing against the “plutocrats” of the early 20th century echoes in the acts of the Occupy Wall Street movement today and its opposition to the wealthiest 1% in America. We have a special heritage in Woodstock, and on this 100th anniversary year we stand with our intellectual ancestors to exclaim proudly our belief in access to knowledge and information. Come join us in the task.  — Barry Samuels  Trustee, Library Board   11

Now, I know one should not judge a book by its cover alone, and likewise a town by its store signs. That said, there are few villages you will drive through and see an array of signs to match Woodstock, New York’s: Freestyle Realty, The White Gryphon, Euphoria Yoga, Not Fade Away, Inner Space, Talisman, Timbuktu, Pondicherry, ‘Calm’ this way, Dharmaware, Evolve, Illuminated Baby, Changes, Flowing Spirit, Peace, Love & Cupcakes, Woofstock and a “head shop” with lifelike statues of the Blues Brothers sitting on its porch, just to mention a few of them. Additionally, there are plenty of village greens in the world where you will be entertained by street performers, but not many that have weekly drum circles packed with participants and instruments. Looking deeper then, you could walk past the giant guitar sculpture in front of the Landau Grill sign, which for some reason is translated underneath in Tibetan, and stop in at the Bread Alone Bakery/coffee shop and mingle with some of the residents. The problem with that approach is it doesn’t take long sitting among their customers to feel like you’re in a secret neighborhood of Manhattan, with several copies of The New York Times scattered about, and self-absorbed people ordering such drinks as a completely dry soy cappuccino, or a lactose14


I decided to view the Town of Woodstock’s website, which is subtitled: “Colony of the Arts”

I would like to humbly suggest placement of an additional historical sign stating: NORMALS C 1751 AD – 1971 AD. Built and populated nearby shelters in this area year-round. — Sean O’Connor 15 7

free latte, or a peppermint mocha macchiato with an extra shot, along with a Nantucket lemon poppy seed pound cake. Placing that distraction aside, I decided to view the Town of Woodstock’s website, which is subtitled: “Colony of the Arts.” Its homepage is covered with five paragraphs elaborating on why Woodstock is the Colony of the Arts. One of the historically important milestones mentioned in this introduction is the establishment of the famed Byrdcliffe Arts Colony in 1902. Speaking of Byrdcliffe, the first Byrdcliffe Festival was held the weekend of July 13th through July 15th, 2012. A few examples of what you could have seen there are: a play, Hedgerow Specimen, starring a talking snail; a film starring wild man Tracy Morgan; and a writers’ workshop titled “Memoir A-Go-Go.” Looking further into the town website you’ll see the writer states that not everyone who lives in Woodstock, New York is an artist. Though after reading it I was not convinced that any regular people actually still live there. So next I took a drive into the hills outside the village center, where at the corner of Rock City Road and California Quarry Road I found a sign: INDIANS C 2000 BC – 1750 AD. Used the nearby rock shelters as autumn hunting bases where they prepared game and clothing.

Elin Menzies

“I go into my library, and all history unrolls before me. I breathe the morning air of the world while the scent of Eden’s roses yet lingered in it, while it vibrated only to the world’s first brood of nightingales, and to the laugh of Eve. I see the pyramids building; I hear the shoutings of the armies of Alexander.” — Alexander Smith
