From junk metal to sculptures

MISSING METADATA

W

ith his well-worn engineer hat, old stogie and deep bright smile, Thomas Malloy is a man all set to take off on his latest adventure. Though his bearing might give the impression of his being a well-seasoned LIRR iron bender, he’s not — he’s a sculptor and the only iron he bends makes sculptures and has nothing to do with tracks. If you’d like proof of that, all you need do is drop by the Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium to witness the results of the artist’s most recent creative adventure. Massive shovel birds and giant riveted finned fish not only cause visitors of all ages to scratch their heads with wonder and delight, but also playfully compete for attention with the live herons and fish that can be seen at the Hatchery. Malloy works with junk and he’s proud of it. Salvaging old machine parts, farming equipment and all sorts of scrap iron, the longtime Glen Head resident welds his magic not only by creating works of art, but also protecting the natural environment. “The nature of his work is right in tune with the Hatchery’s environmental mission to preserve and protect our natural resources,” said Steven DeSimone, Hatchery director. “By using recycled materials to create his sculptures, Thomas helps conserve resources while at the same time enriching our lives.” The exhibition of Malloy’s sculpture can be seen now through September at the Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium, located at1660 NY-25A in Cold Spring Harbor. For further information about the artist, you can visit his website at www.thomasmalloy.com. The Hatchery is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., during July and August, and Saturday & Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.For information call 516-692-6768 or visit www. cshfishhatchery.org

DIRECTIONS 1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put half a cup of marinara sauce into a sprayed baking dish. 2.) Spray a large baking sheet and place zucchini slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper on each side. Bake 8-10 minutes until the zucchini is soft and pliable. 3.) Meanwhile in a small bowl combine ricotta, 1/4 of the Parm, seasoning blend and egg. Spoon one Tbsp of mixture onto an end of each zucchini piece. 4.) Gently roll the zucchini into small cylinders and place each one in marinara sauce tightly together. Top the zucchini with remaining sauce, mozzarella and Parm. Cover with foil and bake 1 hour.

Learn about nature at Sands Pt. walk Most medicines we know today were inspired by active ingredients found in the natural world.Locally, we are surrounded by health promoting agents. Do you know what sassafras looks like? What gives black birch it’s fragrance and flavor? Did you know that the sap from the birch tree has functional uses? You will harvest much wisdom on these and other topics at the Guided Nature Walk: Wisdom & Folklore from Native & Exotic Plants that the Sands Point Preserve Conservancy will be hosting on Sunday, Aug. 12 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. On this guided walk with Tree Sister Hildur Palsdottir and Port Washington Monarch Alliance founder David Jakim, you will explore the cultural and traditional uses of native and exotic wild plants. Participants will learn about the physical and chemical properties that give these plants their smells, flavors, and textures, drawing on the tour guides’ knowledge of plant similarities, patterns, and family relationships. At the same time, you will also learn to look through the eye of an indigenous person as he or she comes to grips with the perceived properties of these plants. The Sands Point Preserve Conservancy has invited the Romanian herbalist Adina Dabija of Sol Center to walk with the group and share her insight into nutritional and medical uses of local flora. Wild Child Organic Artist Antonia

Fthenakis, who brings her Greek heritage to all she touches, will join as well and share how she uses local plant materials for her Diadiii skin care line and creative adventures.

Admission to the event is $10 per car for members and $20 per car for nonmembers. The fee includes parking and payment may be received at the gate. The location of the tour is Sands Point

Do you have what it takes to make a movie in only 48 hours? Simply put, filmmaking teams will have just one weekend to make a short film as part of the Cinema Arts Centre’s 7th Annual CAC 48 Hour Film Competition, which commences Friday, Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. and ends at the same time on Sunday, Aug. 19. The CAC 48-Hour Film Competition is a filmmaking competition that just has to be experienced. Filmmakers don’t know what genre they will be shooting until the start of the competition. All creativity — writing, shooting, editing and adding a musical soundtrack — must occur within the 48hour window beginning Friday evening. Teams will gather at the Cinema Arts Centre’s Sky Room on that night to receive instructions, genre of film, and necessary elements. To add to the mayhem, filmmakers must also include random elements that they will just find out about at the starting line. The entire content of the short film, whichwill be between one and five min-

utes, including titles and all end credits,must be shot within the 48 hours of the competition. Reasons to compete include getting to see your creation on the big screen at the CAC, adding a new film to your portfolio, and being in the running for a cash prize. The winning team will receive $500 and the winning film will be shown for one week at the Cinema Arts Centre, beginning on Monday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. To register, you must complete the registration form that can be found on the Cinema Arts Centre’s website www. cinemaartscentre.org, where there are additional rules, requirements and tips for the competition. The form must be completed before arriving to the competition launch at the Cinema Arts Centre, located at 423 Park Ave. in Huntington. The registration fee is $85 per team, which can be paid online or at the CAC box office. So for all of the budding filmmakers out there who wish to participate in this local competition, break a leg!

All you need to do is shower and show up to your special event.

An evening with CAKE and Ben Folds Forest Hills Stadium is set to host alternative rock band CAKE and alt-rock singer and songwriter Ben Folds, who will take the stage together on Friday, Aug. 17 at 6 p.m. Since forming in Sacramento, California in 1991, CAKE has had studio albums that have gone platinum.  Their most recent, Showroom of Compassion (2011), touted by The New Yorker for its “deadpan brilliance,” became their first album to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Top 200” chart, selling 44,000 copies in the first week after release. Today, CAKE’s original guiding principles have only grown stronger. Originally formed as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE’s democratic processes, defiant self-reliance, and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves. In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer and produce their recording projects in their own solar-powered studio in Sacramento, which actually generates more power than is needed to run it (causing the building’s electrical meter to run in reverse). Additionally, CAKE’s go green advocacy continues with the band giving away a native tree at every performance, and have done so for the past 12 years. When you attend a CAKE concert, there is always a tree on stage throughout their performance, and at some point during

the evening one lucky audience member (who is willing the make the commitment to be a lifelong steward for the tree) gets to take it home. The band is currently in the recording studio working on their ninth album, due for release later this year. Folds is widely regarded as one of the major music influencers of our generation. He has created an enormous body of genre-bending music that includes pop albums with Ben Folds Five, multiple solo albums, and collaborative records with artists including Sara Bareilles, Regina Spektor, and William Shatner. Folds’ most recent work, 2015’s “SO THERE,” blended original songs with his critically acclaimed “Concerto For Piano and Orchestra” and soared to No. 1 on Billboard’s “Classical” and “Classical Crossover” charts. For over a decade, Folds has performed with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras. In 2017, he was named as the first-ever artistic advisor to the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. Folds continues to perform with symphonies and also recently returned to solo touring, delivering a high-energy rock show with the intimacy of a solo piano performance. To get tickets to see CAKE and Ben Folds in concert, go to www.foresthillsstadium.com or call 888-929-7849. Forest Hills Stadium is located at 1 Tennis Place in Forest Hills.

We will create and design a menu tailored to make your next event unforgettable! Montauk to Manhattan.
