The early detection and reporting service was invaluable. Viewing sites for the towers at Balsam Lake Mountain are located at the scenic overlook at the top of Palmer Hill (along Route 28 between Margaretville and Andes); the top of Todd Mountain Road (Ulster County Route 49A), near the intersection with Kelly Road; and along Ridge Road near 1212 Dingle Hill Road, 629 Ridge Road and down Ridge Road for a mile (all are Andes addresses, off Route

Artists on Art tour at Olana this Friday

Antiques appraisal event in New Paltz on Wednesday

The Olana State Historic Site is offering special tours of the main house that are part performance, part interpretation and part radical departure from a traditional house tour. The Partnership Artists on Art series continues this Friday, September 1 with artist Maia Cruz Palileo. Team media artists Jacqueline Goss and Jenny Perlin will perform on Friday, September 15. The artists offer a unique lens through which to interpret Olana. Local artists are given freedom to experiment and invent with “poetic license” as they explore Frederic Church, Olana and this season’s exhibition. All Artists on Art tours end with wine and cheese on the piazza nearing twilight. The events are dynamic, complicated and stem from the idea that artistic storytelling is a compelling part of Olana’s ongoing narrative. The one-hour tour/ performances are followed by discussion. Multidisciplinary artist Maia Cruz Palileo utilizes themes of migration and the permeable concept of home in her

The New Paltz Historical Society will bring back an event that it first held last year. “What Is It? What’s It Worth?” will be offered on Wednesday, September 6 at 7 p.m. at the New Paltz Community Center at 3 Veterans’ Drive. Modeled after the enduringly popular PBS television series, Antiques Roadshow, the event offers the public the opportunity to bring their treasures in for appraisal by local experts. Even if one doesn’t have any items to bring in, it’s a lot of fun to see what others have had tucked away in their garage or attic. Walter Marquez of the Antiques Barn

presentations, paintings, installations, drawings and animations. Her work plays with the idea that stories and memories are subjected to time and constant retelling, and in that the narratives become questionable, bordering the line between fact and fiction. In addition to the September 1 tour, Palileo will present the October 13 program. Media artists Jacqueline Goss and Jenny Perlin focus on the intertwining of political and personal turmoil, the failures of standardization and the subtleties of collaboration. They will work in collaboration at Olana on September 15 and November 3. “Artists and cultural workers can teach us about Olana in ways we might not have even imagined,” says the Olana Partnership’s director of education, Amy Hufnagel. “They are, in so many ways, logical guides to understanding and ‘unpacking’ Olana to the contemporary audience.” Tours begin at 4:30 p.m. Tickets cost $20 for the general public or $15 for Olana Partnership members. The tours are appropriate for visitors age 10 and older. Tours begin at the Visitor Center outside the museum store. Meet 15 minutes before the tour begins.

WOODSTOCK-NEW PALTZ ART & CRAFTS FAIR THIS WEEKEND IN NEW PALTZ

L

abor Day weekend brings the return of the semiannual Woodstock-New Paltz Art & Crafts Fair to the Ulster County Fairgrounds in New Paltz, located at 249 Libertyville Road. The three-day fair will open Saturday through Monday, September 2 to 4. It features a selection of high-quality juried creations by more than 200 artists and craftspeople from across America. The show highlights furniture, architectural crafts, jewelry, demonstrations, handcrafted specialty foods, healthcare products and live performances by Hudson Valley-based musical talent. One of this year’s demonstrating exhibitors will be Chinese painter Zhong-hua Lu, whose remarkable life story and artistic work are documented in The Natural Laws of Good Luck: A Memoir of an Unlikely Marriage, a memoir written by his wife, Ellen Graf. Lu’s paintings contain many of the techniques and content of traditional brush painting blended with Western content gleaned from his past 20 years living in America. Zhong-hua Lu was born in 1958 in Shandong Province, China, at the time of the Great Leap Forward, a government program of industrialization and collectivization that resulted in a devastating famine. Beginning at age five, he learned the basics of traditional brush painting and martial arts from his father and five uncles. When Chairman Mao sent urban youth to work in the countryside as part of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), Zhong-hua was appointed to be a village schoolteacher at age 16. Traditional arts, philosophies and customs were maligned as counterrevolutionary, and those who carried this knowledge banished or killed; but Lu continued to practice painting secretly on scavenged bits of paper until Mao died in 1976. Lu now lives in upstate New York with his wife, artist and writer Ellen Graf. He has taught traditional Chinese arts at Mass MoCA, Williams College, the Capital Region Art Center, the Chinese Community Center, nursing homes, retreats and his home studio. He is also a Hudson Valley Seed Company artist for Nozaki Cabbage. Festival hours are Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Monday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission costs $9 for adults, $8 for seniors; children age 12 and under are admitted free. The event is held rain or shine. No dogs are admitted. Buses are welcome. More information is available by calling (845) 679-8087 or (845) 246-3414 or visiting www.quailhollow. com.

Learn how to identify animal tracks, paint rocks with local artist Susan Togut, work together to complete new interactive scavenger hunts and more. Tablers from local nonprofits will be on hand to offer information about other fun things to do in the Catskill region. The grounds are stroller-friendly, and well-behaved dogs are welcome outside. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it. This event goes on rain or shine. The Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center is located at 5096 State Route 28 in Mount Tremper.

KEN DREYFACK'S “SILENT STAGES” PHOTO EXHIBITION OPENS THIS SATURDAY AT WAAM

S

augerties-based photographer Ken Dreyfack will exhibit 16 black-and-white images in “Silent Stages” at the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum (WAAM). The show opens with an artist’s talk on Saturday, September 2 at 3 p.m., followed by a reception from 4 to 6 p.m., and will remain on view through Sunday, October 1. The photographs were shot over the past three years in New York City, Chicago, Albuquerque, Turkey and locally. Dreyfack says that in the photos, he is seeking to “spark viewers to conjure up a story: a tale laced with mystery, alienation and maybe even a touch of evil.” That’s why, he says, “I want the lighting to be dramatic, why I shoot in black-and-white, why my images often include elements that are too dark and/or fuzzy to see clearly.” Dreyfack is one of eight artists selected for solo shows at WAAM this year by juror Susana Torruella Leval, director emerita of New York’s El Museo del Barrio and chair of the New York City Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission. Three of his photographs were also chosen for the “Radius 50” exhibit at WAAM earlier this summer. His work has also been selected for 2017 shows at galleries in New York, Hudson, the Berkshires, Vermont and New Mexico. A New Yorker by birth and a Frenchman by naturalization, Dreyfack has divided his life between two countries, two languages and two cultures. He has been living in the Hudson Valley since 2008. Active as a hobbyist photographer since college, he worked first as a journalist (including briefly for the Woodstock Times) and later as a freelance writer and consultant. He has been seriously engaged in fine art photography since 2013 and did not seek to have his work exhibited until 2015. Ken currently serves as co-moderator of the Photographers’ Salon at the Center for Photography at Woodstock. Gallery hours at WAAM, located at 28 Tinker Street in Woodstock, are Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 5 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. For more information, visit www.kendreyfack.com and www.woodstockart.org.

Engage in a dialogue to learn how certain works of art are actually made and see many in production. And demonstrations will be ongoing in some studios throughout the weekend.” Participating artists in Germantown include Marie Cole (painter), Doris Cultraro

The monthly walking tour of the 1658 Stockade National Historic District will be offered by the Friends of Historic Kingston on Saturday, September 2 at 1 p.m. The tour departs from the Friends of Historic Kingston Gallery, located at the corner of Wall and Main Streets, opposite the Old Dutch Church. Reservations are suggested but not required. Following the street plan designed by Peter Stuyvesant in 1658, the tour walks the heart of the largest intact early Dutch settlement in New York State and the neighborhood where New York State was born in 1777. Included will be a tour of the interior of the circa-1812 Johnston House, the former home and showroom of nationally noted antiques dealer Fred J. Johnston, where his collection of 18thand early 19th-century furnishings and decorative arts, mostly American, are showcased in eight elegant room settings that he designed. Walking tour highlights include viewing the many 18th-century limestone houses still standing in the Stockade District. The group will also visit the site of the drafting of the New York State Constitution in 1777 and the gravesite of New York’s first elected governor, George Clinton, in the Old Dutch Church burying ground. Tour tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for children under age 16. Group tours on other dates can be arranged by request. For information, call (845) 339-0720 or visit www.fohk.org.

Talk on New Deal artist Olin Dows in Poughkeepsie Barrett Art Center in Poughkeepsie is exhibiting “Olin Dows & Thomas Barrett: Artists and Native Sons” through September 16. The show features historic paintings and prints from Rhinebeck artist Olin Dows (1904-1981) alongside the work of Poughkeepsie-born Thomas Weeks Barrett, Jr. (1902-1947). Both artists were printmakers, painters and muralists. Dows administered the Public Works Art Project during the New Deal, and worked closely with Franklin D. Roosevelt to design and create the murals at the Hyde Park and Rhinebeck Post Offices. Woodcuts and paintings from both Dows and Barrett will be shown together in the exhibition. The exhibit is co-curated by Peggy LaBelle from the Consortium of Rhinebeck History and Hudson Valley muralist Franc Palaia, along with Joanna Frang, the executive director for the Barrett Art Center. LaBelle will give an illustrated talk about artist Olin Dows on Saturday, September 9 from 3 to 4 p.m. A reception will follow. The event is free and open to the public. Artwork by Dows has been gathered

from private collections, including prints and paintings from his time in Mexico and South America and paintings rescued from a fire, complete with charred edges. In the 1930s, Dows headed the government program that commissioned artwork for post offices and courthouses constructed during the New Deal. To stimulate interest in this art, Dow’s agency encouraged artists to seek out local ideas and subject matter for their murals. Barrett was a muralist for the Treasury Relief Art Project and the WPA Federal Art Project in the early 1930s. When he came home afterward to his native Poughkeepsie, he expressed his idealistic nature and desire for a better society by creating a community art organization, founding the Dutchess County Art Association (DCAA) in his own home on Noxon Street. After his death, his sister Betty continued to live in the house until she died in the 1960s. She willed the house to the Dutchess County Art Association that her brother had founded, and it became the community art center that Thomas Barrett had envisioned. Today it is known as the Barrett Art Center and offers art exhibitions, lectures and classes. The exhibit is on view alongside solo shows and a juried members’ show with works selected by Hudson Valley artist

The audience is introduced to a crazy cast of suspicious characters, and Marcus must quickly determine who the guilty party is before the real detective arrives. The tuneful whodunit is a highly theatrical adventure, loaded with killer laughs. One actor investigates the crime, and the other plays all of the suspects…and they both play the piano.

street realities than with the political/ spiritual awareness of Marley, Tosh and Cliff. Yellowman’s prolific recording career extends back to 1982, his first singles released less than a year after the death of Bob Marley in a Miami hospital. Since then – surviving jaw cancer, no less – Yellowman has released no fewer than 21 records and countless singles. He remains a vital touring presence, and when he performs at the Bearsville Theater, it will not be his first stop at Woodstock’s surprising Mecca of contemporary and classic reggae music. Radio Woodstock presents reggae legend Yellowman at the Bearsville Theater on Thursday, August 31 at 8 p.m. Also appearing is special guest deejay GFunkChild, also known as DJ Dub. Ticket prices range from $20 to $45. For tickets and additional information, visit www.bearsvilletheater.com. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock. – John Burdick

f it hadn’t been for trumpeter Don Cherry, Karl Berger might not have come to the US. The two met in Paris in the 1960s, and after playing with Berger, Cherry urged him to try the American music scene. “Musically, he brought a real sense of joy and humor into jazz,” Berger says of Cherry. “He based his music on folk music from all over the world, so it was very accessible.” Eventually, Berger moved with his wife, Ingrid Sertso, to Woodstock, where they founded the Creative Music Studio. It brought many students and important musician/teachers here, and continues in operation today. Cherry died in 1995, but his music lives on. When Berger was invited to perform the closing concert of the 2017 Jazz at the Maverick series this Saturday, he decided to make it a tribute to Cherry. “Cherry’s tradition of playing is folksy and humorous, and gives off a very positive vibe,” Berger says. “And most of the guys in this concert actually played with Don,” including multi-instrumentalist Peter Apfelbaum (who toured with Cherry), tuba player Bob Stewart (featured on more than 80 recordings) and cornet player Graham Haynes, son of the legendary drummer Roy Haynes (currently a member of the Vijay Iyer Sextet). Others involved in the concert are

trumpeter Steven Bernstein, a member of the Lounge Lizards and of the Levon Helm Midnight Ramble Band; bassist Adam Lane, who recorded with Tom Waits and is winner of several Meet the Composer Awards; and drummer Tani Tabbal, who played with Sun Ra and has been on more than 70 CDs, four of them as leader. Vibraphonist Karl Berger, artistic director of the Creative Music Studio, is a six-time Downbeat Critics’ Poll winner. Vocalist Ingrid Sertso, co-director of CMS, has performed with Cherry, Eric Dolphy and Lee Konitz, blending jazz and worldmusic styles in her performances. “Some of Don’s pieces have become very well-known,” says Berger, mentioning especially “Art Deco,” dedicated to Billie Holiday. Sertso has written lyrics to that and many other songs of Cherry’s, and she will be singing some of them at the Maverick. Although eight musicians are involved, Berger says that they will be performing in various combinations, including possibly duets or even a solo. – Leslie Gerber

MUSIC

Sting at Bethel Woods this Friday

S

ting’s phony Jamaican accent on the first three Police albums, morphing gradually over the final two less-satisfying releases into something more like the serious highbrow persona of his grandly successful solo career, is one of the great mysteries and paradoxes in rock. Why he thought it was okay to sing like that is the mystery. The paradox is that Mr. Sumner has always sounded more natural, more comfortable and more real in character than when “playing himself.” The paradox gets loopy AF, as paradoxes are wont to do, on Sting’s strangely fine 2016 rock ‘n’ roll record 57th & 9th. This self-consciously rocking and modern record finds Sting as self-conscious, formal and stiffly deliberate and intentional as ever, playing the role of present-day Sting: a rock star in dotage, in reflection, really feeling the gulf between his public persona and his private self and understanding it as a resonant and troubling symptom of the culture of celebrity. This untenable identity that he bemoans is exactly what he bargained for back at the Crossroads, and he knows it. It is no surprise at all that “Sting” is yet another ill-fitting persona for Sting to play, resulting in a diction and inflection that could only be explained as a terminal case of identity discomfort; what is a bit of a surprise is how effective and affecting these songs are – and this is coming from someone who pretended to like The Dream of the Blue Turtles for about a month when it was new and who was never moved by him again. You need to accept – acquiesce to – Sting’s default pieties and pretensions. That’s just him. Get over it. Once you’ve done that, be prepared to be impressed both by the musical craftiness of these confessional songs, and ultimately, by their courageously awkward honesty. The ringleader of the daring and essential first three Police records needs no justification in my book, but it is a quiet thrill to see the guy getting himself into this kind of thematic trouble at this stage in his career. Supporting 57th & 9th, Sting performs at 8 p.m. on Friday, September 1 at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Reserved seat prices range from $75.50 to $197.50, and $48 for lawn seating.

WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE CREATOR JEFFREY CRANOR LAUNCHES NEW SEASON OF HIS OTHER HIT PODCAST, WITHIN THE WIRES

J

effrey Cranor remembers the first reactions to the podcast that he and a friend created in 2012. They collaborated on scripts that ran on Facebook and Twitter under the title Welcome to Night Vale. When they posted the inaugural episode, they got about 50 downloads the first couple of weeks it was up, “which meant that we had 50 friends,” Cranor recalls. The traffic picked up over the next few weeks. They were looking at a surprise success, but neither Cranor nor his co-creator Joseph Fink had any thought of quitting their day jobs. Welcome to Night Vale continued to gather attention, averaging about 1,000 downloads a month as Cranor and Fink wrote episodes that told the story of a small desert town whose radio broadcasts include community updates, local weather, announcements from the Sheriff ’s Secret Police and dark-hooded figures with unknowable powers. Its tagline was “Turn on your radio and hide.” A year after the first posting, Cranor was hoping for 100,000 downloads. The program received 140,000. Then, in the 13th month, as Cranor recalls, “Something happened.” Cranor is 42. He and his wife, choreographer Jillian Sweeney, moved to Saugerties a couple of years ago. He identifies primarily as a writer. He was born in Texas and studied Journalism at Texas A & M. After gigs at a few weeklies, he realized that it wasn’t journalism that he loved so much as writing for theater. When the couple moved to Brooklyn, he became involved with the New York Neo-Futurists in their long-running show, The Infinite Wrench. Members of the company would write, perform, produce and direct short-short plays. They’d be put on a one-hour timer. Every week, Cranor said, the group would create new works and throw the previous week’s efforts out the window. “It was always changing; we were writing for the now, for the moment. It really changed the way I looked at writing: It made it a lot more immediate, made the relation between actor and audience active rather than passive. It made me think about, ‘How do you connect? How do you tell a true story to an audience that’s hungry for a story better than their own lives?’” Ultimately, Welcome to Night Vale was his first attempt to answer those questions. Podcasts were just looming on the horizon in 2011. Both men were enthralled by the format’s possibilities, even though early podcasts weren’t much more than improvised chat shows between friends. “You kind of just got to know them; it was a feeling I had growing up: listening to the radio, how close I felt to the radio host, how connected I felt to their voices…. So, we said, ‘We should make a podcast.’” There were no fiction podcasts to speak of at the time, he said. Neither man felt capable of doing NPR-style journalism nor improvised comedy that was becoming common, so they decided to play to their strengths: “Both of us were writers. We made and told stories and we were into theater.” That “something” that happened in the 13th month of the show? “We had 2.5 million downloads. And in the 14th month alone, we had 8.6 million. It was really weird.” Weird, and gratifying, even shocking. Cranor said that he believes the program caught fire on Tumblr, and for whatever reasons, Welcome to Night Vale has been downloaded roughly 180 million times since it was first posted. The program has

media. For the sixth straight year, Basilica Hudson’s founders and creative directors Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone are working in collaboration with The Creative Independent editor-in-chief and former Pitchfork director Brandon Stosuy to program the weekend. At Basilica, the art begins in the environment. Auf der Maur says, “Every year we have invited a serious visual artist to activate our building at SoundScape. This year, we are honored to have the work of Marianne Vitale, Emma Kohlmann, Taeyoon Choi and Jesse Draxler on display. Their installations will be inside and outside the festival, spilling into each area of the weekend, filling the Main Hall and grounds.” Literary offerings this year include poetry by Morgan Parker, author of There Are More Beautiful Things than Beyoncé (Tin House Books 2017); readings by the

been performed on more than 200 stages in 35 states in 16 countries over the past three years. A print version of the program debuted at #4 on The New York Times best-seller list. Cranor has long since left his day job. What started off as something of a lark has become a juggernaut of creative energy. The success of Welcome to Night Vale culminated in the Night Vale Presents network last year. Its aim is to encourage independent podcasting from writers and artists who haven’t worked in the format before. To that end, Night Vale Presents has offered fictional podcasts by other artists including Alice Isn’t Dead and The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air). Each debuted in the Apple Podcasts Top 10. Cranor's latest hit podcast, co-written with Janina Matthewson, is called Within the Wires, and it is described as “found audio from an alternate universe.” Using the conceit of a recorded museum tour, the second season, titled "Museum Audio Tours," spins an allusive tale of a mysterious, sci-fi-flavored world that explores the complex relationship between the tour’s narrator and a renowned artist with whom the narrator has had a relationship. Cranor describes this season as “a bit esoteric,” in that it requires the audience to visualize and make decisions about artworks that they have no idea about. It’s also playful, inventive and immersive – a dramatic example of how Cranor and his co-conspirators continue to blend writing and performing and acting into this still-evolving world of podcasting. Within the Wires' "Museum Audio Tours" season premieres on Tuesday, September 5, with new episodes every two weeks through January 9. The season will be available for free on Apple Podcasts, RadioPublic and wherever listeners can access podcasts. Visit www.nightvalepresents.com for links to additional podcasts. – Jeremiah Horrigan

NOLS students learn not to try to conquer nature, but to respect her; and one of their first, most emphatic lessons is how to protect oneself from hypothermia. Cold will kill you out there with ease. But the Eastern S h o s h o n e and Northern Arapaho for whom the area is home face additional life-threatening challenges: poverty, drug and alcohol addiction and violent crime.

But no agency, Taylor Sheridan tells us in the closing shots of his new movie Wind River, even bothers to keep track of the numbers of Native women who go missing. That shocking non-statistic is about the only time that the film gets sociologically preachy, though Sheridan has said in interviews that it was a large part of his motivation in making it.

ALMANAC WEEKLY

August 31, 2017 screenwriting work on Sicario and Hell or High Water has earned him profuse praise and several major award nominations; some critics are pegging Wind River as the culmination of a trilogy about the bleaker side of the contemporary American West. It’s certainly dark and somber, merging the chilly anatomy lessons and bureaucratic frustrations of a police procedural with the morbid humor and grisly outbursts of Tarantinoesque noir and the frontier yarn-spinning voice of a Larry McMurtry novel (Sheridan has admitted to Newsweek that he was tonally inspired by Lonesome Dove in the writing of Wind River). But scratch the surface of this film and you get much more than a detective thriller. As crack Fish & Wildlife Service predator-culler Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner) and out-of-her-depth FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) try to find the killers of a young Native woman whose corpse Lambert discovers in the snow – far off-road and six miles from the nearest building – we see revealed the desperation of life on the “rez” and the ways in which the harsh environment drives people to

make bad choices. Banner starts out culturally tone-deaf and utterly unprepared for a Wyoming winter, but learns quickly, driven by her revulsion for the victim’s fate and her growing awareness that, as a sardonic, seen-it-all reservation sheriff played by the amazing Graham Greene tells her, “This isn’t the Land of Backup, Jane. This is the Land of You’re on Your Own.” Wind River has an excellent cast across the board (with people of genuine indigenous ancestry filling all the Native roles), notably Gil Birmingham as Martin, the father of Natalie (Kelsey Asbille), the murdered girl. But Renner’s remarkable performance as Lambert rightly dominates our attention. At first glance, at work in the wild, he seems a clichéd Western action hero: a man of few words, a stoic loner, a hyperfocused, hypercompetent tracker and marksman. Back home in Lander and out on the reservation, a warmer, more complex character unfolds: devoted father to his half-Arapaho son, empathetic friend to Martin, willing assistant and non-

judgmental mentor to the flailing FBI agent. Human connection, Sheridan’s smartly written script seems to be telling us, is the lifeline that keeps people from going crazy on this harsh frontier. But there’s also a grimmer layer to Lambert’s determination to help: His own teenage daughter mysteriously disappeared three years earlier and is presumed dead, leading to the dissolution of his marriage; the latest murder victim, Natalie, had been her friend. While seeing what drives him makes for a richer character study, it also steers the film’s denouement toward a vengeance scenario that detracts from its aspirations to avoid the tropes of Hollywood Westerns – in this case, the “noble vigilante in a lawless land.” Still, the relationships depicted here have enough nuance to make us forget that Renner and Olsen are usually seen onscreen together as Marvel superheroes. Wind River is a movie with a lot of strengths. Besides solid writing and some really fine performances, it boasts outstanding cinematography by Ben Richardson (Beasts of the Southern Wild)

NIGHT SKY

Who saw totality? Wrapping up the eclipse… and looking ahead

R

eports from countless readers and colleagues reveal the happy news that most people in the path of totality got to see the glorious event. But not everyone: Both coasts had various degrees of clouds, so that people in Madras, Oregon and Charlottesville, South Carolina watched the eclipsed Sun disappear and reappear. In Nebraska, some missed totality entirely. In Carbondale, Illinois, a huge cloudbank obscured the sun just before totality, but thankfully let the spectacle pop into the clear for the final ten seconds. In Casper, Jackson and Douglas, Wyoming, skies were generally clear to partly cloudy, and few if anyone missed it. Was traffic bad? In many places, yes. My tour group of 100 people sat on our coaches for 12 hours in an effort to get to Boulder, Colorado on a ride that normally would take four hours. The bright side This was the largest migration of Americans to a science event I have witnessed in my lifetime. It was gratifying to see how many were willing to inconvenience themselves for a celestial spectacle. Americans are often lazy, with one-third not bothering to vote, for example. And we are not particularly science-savvy. So being stuck in traffic revealed how millions did indeed take the trouble to witness the greatest natural spectacle they will ever see. And if a traffic jam was the price, so be it. The reactions They were exactly what I’d heard after all eight totalities I’ve witnessed, in leading eclipse tours for four decades. Many wept. Some said afterward that they were “not expecting such a powerful experience.” Many used the word “spiritual” instead of “powerful.” All felt that it transcended anything they had ever seen in their lives. How this compared This was one of my favorite totalities. But it felt very short. When the two-and-a-half minutes had passed and the second diamond ring appeared, it felt as if just 15 seconds had gone by. This was unique in that the chromosphere – the spectacular, narrow red band of solar atmosphere between the blinding photosphere and the wide corona – was very obvious for a few seconds around the time of the diamond ring, but not in the middle of the eclipse. I’ve not seen it so well before. What about the partial? Dozens of readers who had “stayed home” sent me photos of the partial eclipse. Thank you for taking the time to do so! Some of them were wonderful indeed! Being obnoxious But that’s not how I replied to those readers. Instead, I obnoxiously responded with sympathy messages. You see, totality is so spectacular that in all honesty, I say to anyone who merely saw a partial eclipse, “You missed it. You have my condolences.”

gion turn toward the prospect of the Woodstock Film Festival, which will lure hordes of glitterati and celebrity-watchers to the Catskills as surely as leaf-peepers in mid-October. But what if you don’t want to wait that long for a heaping helping of independent filmmaking? For you, immediate relief is at hand. All too many screen buffs forget that the eponymous fall event is not the only film festival in Woodstock’s neck of the woods.

The other one happens this very week, at the Woodstock Museum (technically located in Saugerties). The filmmakers may not be famous as yet, but you can’t get much more indie than this. And you can’t beat the price of admission, which is always free. This event runs evenings from Wednesday, August 30 to Sunday, September 3, plus daytime screenings on Labor Day. Two air-conditioned theaters run each scheduled film simultaneously. There are countercultural exhibits to view and grounds to stroll in the daytime and a café on-site that opens at 6 p.m., one hour before the evening movie programs get underway. There will also be music, light shows with Jim C., a bonfire and, weather permitting, access to a swimming pool with underwater stereo speakers. The independent films on view are submitted from all around the world. Many are short; some are animated; others are documentaries or capture live performances. Question-and-answer sessions with the filmmakers follow a number of the evening screenings. The unifying theme for 2017 is “Hope.” Here’s the lineup in brief: Wednesday, August 30: 7 p.m., “Parade” de Satie; 7:30 p.m., The Way of My Life; 8 p.m., Mining the Unconscious: Jung & the Artist’s Journey. Thursday, August 31: 7 p.m., Super Chef; 7:30 p.m., Mwah; 8 p.m., Stone Story. Friday, September 1: 7 p.m., Roll Call: A Dance Story; 8 p.m., Nocturnality; 8:30 p.m., Bride of Frankie; 9 p.m., The Bullish Farmer.

The Diamond Ring effect is seen as the moon makes its final move over the sun during the total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21 above Madras, Oregon. A total solar eclipse swept across a narrow portion of the contiguous United States from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. A partial solar eclipse was visible across the entire North American continent along with parts of South America, Africa, and Europe. Photo Credit: (NASA | Aubrey Gemignani)

Next time There are upcoming total solar eclipses in 2019, 2020 and 2021 in Chile, Argentina and Antarctica. But most Americans will wait until April 8, 2024, when a four-minute totality will sweep north from Texas and pass over Cleveland, Buffalo, Rochester, Burlington, Vermont and across Maine. Once again I (and others) will urge people to get into the path of totality. The big misconception Here’s the mistake newbies make: They assume that the draw here, the big deal, is “blackness at noon.” (Actually, totality isn’t very dark.) Thus, it seemingly makes sense that an eclipse that is 90 percent total must logically deliver 90 percent of the darkness and 90 percent of the experience. In reality, strange and wondrous phenomena unfold only at totality. Plus, there’s that otherworldly feeling or vibe. A partial eclipse offers none of it. (Actually, the amazingly odd light on the surrounding countryside in the ten minutes before totality is indeed seen for those who have at least an 85 percent partial eclipse, and also the strange sight of “crescent shapes” in the shadows of bushes and trees – but nothing else.) So what’s the difference? I’ll be blunt, so that in 2024 even more of our readers (hopefully) travel to the totality. The difference between a partial and a total solar eclipse is like the difference between falling in love and washing the dishes. Or the difference between the Greek island of Santorini at sunset versus visiting your dentist’s office. Or dying and going to Heaven versus dying and then sitting at an airport departure gate. Just ask anyone who has seen one. The point: They may each contain the word “eclipse,” but they are incomparable experiences. Sure, totality is inconvenient and maybe expensive. But do it anyway. You’ve got seven years to plan it. – Bob Berman Want to know more? To read Bob’s previous “Night Sky” columns, visit our Almanac Weekly website at HudsonValleyOne.com.

Legendary writer, natural performer, a formidable interpreter and kickass guitarist on a guitar that has truly had its ass kicked, Willie Nelson returns to Poughkeepsie. For this Bardavon-produced show, Willie forgoes the high theatrical setting of the Bardavon in favor of the more capacious Mid-Hudson Civic Center. Nelson swings through the Civic Center on Wednesday, September 13 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $98, $78 and $58 and

Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival takes Love’s Labour’s Lost on the road to Storm King Art Center this weekend

T

he King of Navarre and three of his young retainers, Lords Berowne, Longueville and Dumaine, make a vow amongst themselves to swear off women and other worldly pleasures for three years whilst they devote themselves to intellectual pursuits. Shortly thereafter, the Princess of France arrives on a diplomatic mission, accompanied by her three lovely ladies-in-waiting, Rosaline, Maria and Katharine. Predictably enough, the four male aristocrats are soon falling in love, sneaking around behind one another’s backs and spying on each other, abetted and/or hindered by the usual Shakespearean array of scurrilous servants, pompous prelates and simple rustics. Such are the bare bones of the plot of Love’s Labour’s Lost, one of the Bard’s earlier comedies, and also one of the least frequently performed in modern times. It’s dense with verbal brilliance, much of it utterly inscrutable to audiences born centuries too late to twig the fleeting Elizabethan poetic and rhetorical fashions that are being parodied therein. Consequently, however worthy a work of linguistic art, it’s usually heavily edited when it’s produced at all, nowadays. That’s a bit of a shame, since Shakespeare fans will find in Love’s Labour’s Lost the author’s rough drafts for characters much more sharply realized in Much Ado about Nothing: Berowne and Rosaline’s flirtatious banter anticipates the snarky verbal sparring of Beatrice and Benedick, while Constable Dull’s propensity for malapropisms reaches its full flowering in the form of Dogberry in the later work. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the process of a great author just beginning to refine his craft. Happily, this summer the talented people at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival (HVSF) have taken on the challenge of translating Love’s Labour’s Lost into accessible stage fare. It wrapped up its run at Boscobel in Cold Spring last Tuesday, but will reappear for two sunset shows this weekend in an intriguingly different (but comparably spectacular) outdoor setting: the grounds of the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville. Instead of a vista of the Hudson Highlands, West Point and Constitution Marsh, you’ll see massive sculptures by the likes of Mark di Suvero as a backdrop. Ian Belknap directs these two Shakespeare on the Road performances featuring the HVSF Conservatory Company. Showtime is at 6 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday, September 1 and 2, and the play runs about 90 minutes. This will be a “lawn seating” arrangement, for which you will need to bring your own blanket and/or folding chair. Come up to an hour early to set up, and enjoy picnic offerings from the on-site café and food truck. Tickets cost $35 general admission, $32 for seniors, $25 for youth aged 5 to 18, $15 for Storm King members; children under 5 get in free. To purchase tickets,

Pat Horner exhibit opens this Saturday at Hudson’s Orton Gallery An opening reception for an exhibit of work by Willow-based artist Pat Horner will be held on Saturday, September 9 at the Davis Orton Gallery in Hudson. The show will be on view from Saturday, September 2 through October 1. Horner’s collage and mixed-media works draw on her imagination, memories, dreams and beliefs. She works with photographic images gleaned from family, nature,

feminism and politics. “Collage is a form of visual writing,” Horner says. Strongly based on gender and particularly women, her collages cover topics that include relationships between the sexes, values, nature, war, history, fashion, indifference, blindness and power. She believes that mixed media are the best common language to express feelings and stimulate the viewer. Several pieces in this exhibit have added texture using fabric, thread, digital reproductions,

Puiatti/Gabel/Fairman show opens at New Paltz’s Gruber Gallery The Mark Gruber Gallery in New Paltz is exhibiting a trio of local talent in its new show: “Linda Puiatti, Tarryl Gabel and Marilyn Fairman: Recent Paintings” The show opens on Saturday, September 2 with a wineand-cheese reception from 5 to 7 p.m., open to the public. The exhibit will remain on view through October 7. Puiatti, Gabel and Fairman are awardwinning artists, well-established for their engaging inventiveness and sound painting techniques. Though rooted in traditional forms, their collective contemporary edge sets them each apart individually. With a bit of the classic Realist, Gabel paints intimate natural scenes that harbor Romantic ideals. A passionate outdoor painter, her oils are painted both en plein air and in the studio. Her works capture fleeting moments in time and the way light moves across a changing landscape. Puiatti portrays the vastness of our world, leaving the viewer embedded in a place where one can hear the quiet and feel the wind. Fairman’s Impressionistic approach to paint and color relays the energy and impermanence of existence while exploring familiar landscapes. The Mark Gruber Gallery is located at 17 New Paltz Plaza in New Paltz. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday and Monday by appointment.

S

ummer isn’t summer until you get to Nancy’s of Woodstock Artisanal Creamery. I am using words to describe this ice cream miracle, but don’t take my word for it; taste for yourself. Then let me know which flavor you just got hooked on. I found Nancy’s, located in the heart of Woodstock, very accessible: easy to park and walk to the shop. Literally everything is made on-site. From the chocolate sauce to the ice creams themselves to the temptations like Key lime pie, I have never experienced anything else like it. They don’t just make the ice cream; the ingredients are all locally sourced, such as milk and eggs. Owners Kathryn and Sam Spata live here, and every bite is like a celebration of Catskill country. I picked up a Key lime pie at my first visit to the Creamery, and a few hours later, my family had eaten the entire thing. My daughter said, “We’re out of Key lime pie, we need to get some more!” like it was suddenly a pantry staple. I asked a bunch of questions while I ate my way through the menu. Nancy’s of Woodstock Artisanal Creamery is located at 105 Tinker Street in Woodstock. For more information or special orders, call (845) 684-5329 or visit http:// nancysartisanal.com. See you there! What are some of most popular flavors among customers, as well as your own preferences? Customer favorites are vanilla, chocolate, and banana. Sam: “I love our milkshakes – thick and flavorful.” Kathryn: “I love our strawberry ice cream!”

can’t help but feel the happiness. We are fanatic about cleanliness. Our shop is airy, bright and kid-friendly. Our sunlit patio is a quiet place for friends and families to sit, enjoy and relax. Parking is easy at our end of Tinker Street; plus, we have our own off-street parking in the back. We love our customers as much as they love our ice cream! SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2

comparison with others. We think about our ice cream and treats as desserts we’d want to serve our friends and family at home. We make products that are: delightful, with unique and unexpected flavors, like strawberry balsamic ice cream and blackberry basil sorbet; authentic, where everything we serve – sauces, cones, cookies, cakes and ice cream – is made fresh in the shop every day and features local dairy, produce and artisanal favorites like Fruition chocolate; three dozen fresh bananas go into each batch of our caramelized banana ice cream; and healthy, using fresh eggs, heavy cream and cane sugar in small batches, and no artificial flavorings, colorings, stabilizers or preservatives.

I have heard rave reviews of the annual Iroquois Festival over the past few years, and while I haven’t yet made it to this particular event, I highly recommend the Iroquois Museum itself, where the festival takes place. Here’s why I love the museum: It’s about Iroquois history and contemporary culture. And it’s created by Native Americans themselves, not interpreted for them by others. The Festival brings together so many tribes and has fun, engaging hands-on activities for all ages; plus, you can hike the trails, view the exhibits and, of course, fantastic storytelling and dancing. I also heard that live animals will be on hand as part of presentations about wildlife conservation. You could even combine your visit with a stop at rustic, old-school Secret Caverns (or more modern Howe Caverns is nearby, too). The annual Iroquois Indian Festival takes place this Saturday and Sunday, September 2 and 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Regular museum admission costs $8 for adults, $6.50 for seniors 62 and older as well as students 13 to 17, $5 for ages 5 to 12 and is free for children 4 and under. The Iroquois Indian Museum is located at 324 Caverns Road in Howes

KIDS' ALMANAC ERICA’S CANCER JOURNEY:

“You’re doing it wrong!”

T

he fervor in some people’s cancer conversations with me over these past two years reminds me of the intensity some folks approached me with during my first pregnancy, from waxing philosophic about a particular OB-GYN or midwife to long diatribes about why it’s better for the Earth to use cloth or disposable diapers – all without my having posed a question, and well before the baby had even arrived! Some people are absolutely convinced that I should follow their lifestyle tips, adjust to their miracle diets or receive care at their preferred cancer facilities; but they don’t know my situation, or even the specific type of my breast cancer (there are many different kinds, just like tickborne diseases). The energy behind their words can feel like, “Erica, you’re doing it wrong!” Now that I’m expecting to pass away within a matter of months, the current static is more about my preparation for death and end-of-life choices, because it means less time for getting together. I am racing against the clock to complete my preparations. I’ve been the zealot countless times. I wish I could take back the moments I may have created these feelings of inadequacy and confusion in another person. I have traveled the world; I have seen, done, eaten and experienced a tremendous amount in my lifetime. My entire focus right now is fully living, and fully dying; so the kids still get their mac & cheese, and I am cleaning out my basement. It’s not everyone’s way, not everyone’s choice. And I resist offering advice now, more than ever. What might be a throwaway conversation to me could be a real curveball to you. My goal is simply to See You and to Hear You before sharing myself. – Erica Chase-Salerno

GARDENER’S NOTEBOOK

The seaberry shake There’s a trick to coaxing tasty juice from this thorny shrub

M

y successes with growing shiitake mushrooms emboldened me, this past spring, to venture further afield to wine cap mushrooms (Stropharia rugosoannulata). After all, they have been billed as “prized, delicious” and “edible when young.” Their quick production also prompted me to give them a try. As a matter of fact, my spring “planting” started bearing a couple of weeks ago. A bed can also be refreshed or a new bed can be inoculated from an old bed for repeat performances. Let’s go back to spring, to my planting. Wine caps grow very well in woodchip mulch, something that’s aplenty on my farmden. My berry bushes are mulched, my pear trees are mulched, as are the paths in my vegetable gardens. Why not do double-duty with those mulches? A few years ago, I attempted just that, laying a thick mulch of chips atop my asparagus bed in spring. Two problems: The thick mulch almost killed the plants, and the weather was very dry for weeks on end. Mushrooms need moisture. This past spring, I pulled back twigs and other debris from a patch of ground beneath a Norway spruce tree and laid down a few inches of hardwood-chip mulch. After sprinkling the purchased spawn over the mulch, I topped everything with another inch or two of, this time, wood shavings. For this spring’s planting, I also decided to water, so set up a sprinkler. Rain fell pretty consistently all season long, obviating the need for further watering. The tasting: To me, the mushrooms were tasteless. Sure, I could have sautéed them with butter and garlic; then they would have tasted like butter and garlic. (Disclaimer: Your results may differ from mine.) My taste for wine cap mushrooms went down another notch when I more recently read a caution to eat them moderately and not more than two days in a row. My yard abounds with plenty of other good-tasting, healthful food, so I’ll pass on the wine caps. On to more tasty items: seaberries (Hippophae rhamnoides). The harvest is in – the first harvest from my 2013 planting. I wanted them for juice and, on the recommendation of seaberry expert Jim Gilbert of www.onegreenworld.com, planted Titan, Leikora and Orange Energy. Seaberry plants are either male or female. Only female plants bear fruit; to do so, they need pollen from a nearby male, which I also planted. One male can sire up to eight females. In addition to yielding very healthful berries, seaberries further earn their keep as landscape plants. (I’ve seen them planted as ornamentals in New York City’s Battery Park.) The bush’s thin olive-green leaves are the perfect backdrop for the bright-orange berries, clustered thickly right along the stems. And there’s the rub: Long, sharp thorns also cluster along the stems, making harvest a potentially painful proposition. I used the method that Jim recommended for harvest, and that is to cut stems heavily laden with berries into six-inch-long pieces, put them into a covered plastic tub and then freeze them. The frozen berries came off the stems when the tub was shaken vigorously. All I had to do then was to pick out the stems, and then winnow the leaves from the fruit in front of a fan. The berries are now back in the freezer, to be made into juice at my leisure. That’ll involve cooking them in a little water, mashing them with a potato masher and then straining. My previous planting yielded a delicious juice once diluted with one-eighth part water and sweetened with one-eighth part maple syrup or honey. This season’s juice should be even better, because the berries taste better than the previous varieties I planted. Especially good – even straight from the bush – in the new planting is the variety Titan. Seaberry generally tastes, to me, like very rich orange juice

Painting of seaberry (Hippophae rhamnoides) by botanist C. A. M. Lindman with the addition of pineapple or passionfruit. Titan has more of a tangeriney flavor. Wine cap mushrooms and seaberries are both plants beloved by permaculturalists: the mushrooms for the little care that they need, and their use of mulched ground; the seaberries also for their low maintenance, their beauty and their enrichment of the soil with nitrogen. My seaberries are in a “permaculturalesque” planting, along with elderberry, highbush cranberry, nannyberry viburnum, rugose rose, Korean pine and aronia. They’re all easy to care for. They’re all very ornamental. The only ones that taste good or yield anything are the seaberry and the rugosa roses. – Lee Reich Any gardening questions?

Theater Fall Program. Youth Ensemble Theater (YET) has added an added Teen Theater Ensemble. A pre-professional theater institute for 10 through 18 year olds, and engages young people in a dynamic ensemble process to create and perform contemporary cutting edge theater. YET was founded and is directed by Amy Poux, a former professional actress and director, Poux is the current Director of Education at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and a Rosendale resident of 15 years. Diverse and divergent thinkers are welcome. YET does not require its members to have previous drama experience – just an interest in creating and performing– and working as an ensemble. YET Teens have traveled to NYC Off-Broadway theaters to perform, while younger YET kids are supported to collaborate, find new friends, and think outside the box - using different forms of expression as part of their theater-making -- like original video and recorded music. Each play is as different and unique as its members. YET enrollment is now open through the end of August and programs begin the week of September 14th. Each group is small – so spaces fill quickly. This year’s Institute will providetwo YET Teen Ensemble Groups (for middle and high schoolers), and one group for younger YETis (4th – 6th graders). YET takes place on the campus of High Meadow School at 3643 Main Street, Stone Ridge. To sign up or to learn more about Youth Ensemble Theater, go to the organization’s website: youthensembletheater.com. Monarchs in our Schools - An Exciting Teacher Training (9/6 or 9/7).
