HEUER The tenants at Atlas Studios cover a range of creative disciplines, from bookbinding and sculpture to clothing design and photography. Most of the spaces are private,MEREDITH but the Newburgh Pottery is an exception. The community ceramics studio offers kids’ pottery workshops on the last Saturday of each month and eight-week courses for adults, along with onetime workshops.

A world of art Former Newburgh yarn factory transformed into creative beehive Atlas Studios

F

rom the outside, the building looks like what it once was: a circa-1920s industrial factory built to manufacture worsted yarn. From the inside, it’s all industrial modernity and light-filled workspaces. Located a stone’s throw from Washington’s Headquarters in Newburgh, a block or so uphill from the Hudson River, the historic 55,000-square-foot structure now christened Atlas Studios houses working space for artists and other creatives, and a gallery space suitable for hosting

Atlas Studios contains 42 workspaces ranging in size from approximately 200 to several thousand square feet. art shows and other cultural events. The gallery may also be rented for private functions. Atlas Studios contains 42 workspaces ranging in size from approximately 200 to several thousand square feet. Fourteenfoot-high ceilings on the top two floors feel even taller with the plentiful natural light illuminating the spaces. Tenants have access to freight elevators, a loading dock, a common-area kitchen and a photo studio. The building is currently at full capacity, according to Thomas Wright, who, along with business partner Joseph Fratesi, is behind the factory building’s transformation. A waiting list is available on the website. Fratesi and Wright are also the building’s main tenants, housing the offices and production space for their design and manufacturing firm, Atlas Industries, on the premises. They specialize in custom cabinetry and millwork, modular office design and handmade furniture. At some point on the horizon, the two would like to turn a portion of their space at Atlas Studios into a retail shop.

WOLFGANG WESENER

Joseph Fratesi and Thomas Wright, the team behind the building’s transformation

Atlas Industries originated in Gowanus, Brooklyn, in 1993. Looking for more space and a conducive atmosphere to continue what they were doing, but on a larger scale, they bought the property in Newburgh in 2012 and began the process of renovation, moving their business up the following year. The tenants at Atlas Studios cover a range of creative disciplines, from bookbinding and sculpture to clothing design and photography. Most of the spaces are private, but recent Brooklyn transplants David and Jennifer Moldover’s 2,500-square-foot space, the Newburgh Pottery, on the ground floor of the building, is an exception. The community ceramics studio offers kids’ pottery workshops on the last Saturday of each month and eight-week courses for adults, along with one-time workshops. Classes are for all levels of experience, and the fee includes materials and open studio time to practice. The Newburgh Pottery also offers a studio membership for experienced potters and ceramicists. A monthly fee allows access to the workspace and equipment during business hours (24-hour access after two months of membership), and membership includes a private shelf to store works-in-progress.

House clays and glazes are included at no extra cost. For more information, visit https://thenewburghpottery.com. The gallery at Atlas Studios hosts a jazz series every other month. The next “Jazz at Atlas” evening will be held on Saturday, March 30 at 8 p.m., featuring Thumbscrew: guitarist Mary Halvorson, bassist Michael Formanek and drummer

and percussionist Tomas Fujiwara. The trio will perform their own compositions and selected standards. Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Advance tickets are available at https:// thumbscrew.brownpapertickets.com. Following the success of its inaugural Winter Market, Atlas Studios will host the Atlas Spring Market 2019 over Mothers’ Day weekend: Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will celebrate the opening of a new neighbor, the 17 Spring Street Garden, which has a focus on garden culture and sustainable systems. Vendors are being encouraged to include interactive elements to their booths, so visitors can expect a variety of activities, educational material and live demos. A talk and book-signing with noted gardening writer Margaret Roach will be held for her newly revised book, A Way to Garden. A raffle with prizes donated by local businesses will be offered, with winners announced at a garden party to be held on Saturday evening. All proceeds from the raffle and ticketed events through the weekend will benefit the Hudson Valley Seed Company and the Newburgh Urban Farm and Food Initiative. Vendors will include makers, artisans, vintage collectors, floral designers, local farms, organizations, community gardens and growers. In an effort to provide a lowwaste event, “Zero to Go” will be on-site. Vendor applications will be taken through March 25; visit www.atlasnewburgh.com/ market for more details.

Asperger’s Are Us comedy troupe at BSP on Friday

BSP in Kingston presents the Asperger’s Are Us comedy troupe on Friday, March 15. The Boston sketch comedy troupe made up solely of artists on the autism spectrum has captured the attention of the national media and earned kudos for their rangy, experimental oddball comedy, not for the identities of the performers. “Their show is not an autism awareness campaign, they say,” wrote The New York Times. “They want people to laugh simply because they’re funny.” Tickets for this seated show cost $10 in advance, $12 on the day of the show. Asperger’s Are Us comedy troupe Friday, Mar. 15 7:30 p.m. BSP 323 Wall St. Kingston www.bspkingston.com

sight to behold: The woodcock first attempts to impress his ladylove with his earthbound dance moves, bobbing up and down on his spindly legs. Then he’ll suddenly rocket straight up into the air and zigzag crazily about, making odd whistling and “kissing” noises before settling back down. This courtship display can go on for hours – typically at dusk, so it’s not easy to observe or photograph. Lucky you if you know where to lurk and await this weird avian rite of spring. The uninitiated might want to join an organized group: Check out the Vernal Equinox Woodcock Walk in the Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge, located in Galeville in southern Ulster County, happening on Wednesday, March 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. Christine Guarino leads the expedition, which will gather at the refuge entrance on Hoagerburgh Road (County Route 18). Besides woodcock courting flights, participants should hear early amphibians, and maybe an owl or two as well. E-mail chrissy.guarino@gmail.com to join the party.

If you live near a wetland in the Northeast, you certainly know the UFO-landing sounds of a population of spring peepers emerging, hungry and randy; and you may also be familiar with the mating call of the male American woodcock, popularly described by birders as a “buzzy peent.” What comes next after that call is a

     

The new Denizen Theatre in New Paltz goes off script on March 21 and 22 with a pair of performances by the innovative tap dancer (and Hudson Valley native) Jared Sprague. Sprague’s novel technique combines dance and music (no strangers, of course) with a surprising third medium: painting. Sprague, who is completing his BFA in Commercial Dance at Pace University, places canvases with dabs of colorful paint on the floor. As he performs his various tapdance phrases on the canvases, his shoes spread the paint and create a vibrant visual representation of the movements. Sprague’s “Capture the Tap” technique has been presented at tap-intensive programs such as the DC Tap Fest in Washington, DC and Tap Kids in Burlington, Vermont. Tickets to this performance cost $25.

Drawdown Challenge at Rhinebeck’s Starr Library on Saturday The Starr Library in Rhinebeck presents a Drawdown Challenge Program on Saturday, March 16. Drawdown is a book by Paul Hawken and a blueprint for reversing global warming and leaving a better planet for future generations. Along with other libraries and communities in New York State, the Starr Library will look at so-

ou know these little suckers (literally). They creep into the nooks and crannies of your house, seeking winter shelter during the fall, then fly out to plague you on warm, sunny days. If you suck them up with a vacuum or Dustbuster, you’ll have to live with their malodorous presence for days thereafter. Yes, we’re talking about stink bugs, those shield-shaped pests who come by their common name honestly, emitting a foul odor as a defense mechanism when threatened or disturbed. More specifically, we mean the species that has become common in the Hudson Valley in recent years, having arrived in the US from East Asia around 1998: the brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys. As much of an unwelcome guest as it is in the home, stink bugs can inflict significant economic damage on farmers and affect home gardeners. Stink bugs cause the deformity to apples that’s known as “catfacing,” and they also attack peaches, apricots, figs, mulberries, citrus fruits, persimmons, beans, corn, tomatoes, soybeans, peppers and okra, not to mention a variety of ornamental plants. Strategies for controlling stink bug invasions include caulking around cabinets, light fixtures, pipes, exhaust fans, baseboards and window frames, but they are not easily controlled by pesticides. The Hudson Valley Research Laboratory, associated with Cornell University, has been doing research on ways to stop the pests at the source: targeting stink bug egg clusters when they appear, from May through August. To learn more about this unwelcome visitor and how to discourage it, come hear entomologist Amy Walker, who has been assisting Hudson Valley Research Laboratory scientists in their fight to control the stink bug invasion, at 1 p.m. this Saturday, March 16 at the Plattekill Historical Preservation Society headquarters at 127 Church Street in Plattekill, just off Route 32. Admission and parking are free, and light refreshments will be served. For more info, call (845) 883-6118 or (845) 401-9469.

lutions that each of us can apply to our daily life to make a difference. The March 16 program explores how eating a plant-based diet helps heal you and our planet. A meat-based diet comes with a sharp climate pricetag: one-fifth of global emissions. If cattle were their own nation, they would be the world’s thirdlargest emitter of greenhouse gases. Coach Sande Nosonowitz will discuss the global and personal healing properties of plant-based diets. Then participants are encouraged to sign up for the Meatless Mondays Challenge.

LEVIN BROTHERS PLAY SENATE GARAGE ON SATURDAY

T

he Levin Brothers are co-fronted by bassist/Chapman stick player Tony Levin and his brother, keyboardist Pete Levin. While Tony made his name playing with Peter Gabriel, King Crimson and David Bowie (and John Lennon and, and, and), Pete’s thing has always been jazz and its derivatives. A New York session ace who has recorded or performed with Miles Davis, Gil Evans, Jimmy Giuffre, Dave Brubeck and Charles Mingus, Pete’s résumé is hardly less impressive than his rock-star brother’s. In 2014, the Levin Brothers released their first record as co-leaders: a set of jazz originals inspired by the accessible, melody-based and unfailingly groovy cool jazz of the 1950s – the music they grew up loving together. Since then, their repertoire has expanded to include pieces by Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Ennio Morricone, Ralph Towner, Astor Piazzolla, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Giuffre and others. The Levin Brothers, accompanied by legendary guitarist David Spinozza and drummer Jeff Siegel, perform at the Senate Garage in Kingston on Saturday, March 16. Tickets cost $25 and are available online and at Rhino Records at 6 North Front Street in Kingston. – John Burdick The Levin Brothers, Saturday, Mar. 16, 8 p.m., Senate Garage, 4 North Front St., Kingston, (845) 802-0029, http://jazzstock.com

The addition of Francine Hollander as a regular member has added a new dimension to the music, softening the focus, making the grizzled trio of instrumentalists appear positively youthful and adding great depth to some fine, heartbreaking old country tunes, as well as an original or two. Tickets at the Rosendale Cafe cost $10 for this show, and are available at the door. Seating is first-come, first-served, and the club does serve fine vegetarian food.

availability, may be the variable that needs to change. Alfonso Cuarón’s 2018 opus Roma should’ve been more widely seen in moviehouses, but the moviehouses didn’t want to play ball with Netflix, the film’s US distributor. If you do Netflix, where it has been available since November, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen Roma. If movie theaters are more your speed, catching a screening of it has been much more of a challenge. I caught it at the Moviehouse in Millerton last week, and the Rosendale Theatre will be showing it from March 15 to 21.

Shocking as it may sound to those of us who still cherish the social experience of watching a picture show in a big, gloriously appointed cinema, there’s a growing demographic, trending young, for whom the line between watching TV and going to the movies has grown vanishingly slender. Steven Spielberg isn’t the only graying cinephile to express alarm over this trend to turn moviegoing from a special night out into a form of cocooning. In calling for movies distributed primarily by streaming services to be disqualified from consideration for Academy Awards, however, he may be going about it the wrong way.

NIGHT SKY

What’s the (dark) matter?

W

hat sort of stuff makes up our universe? The question is almost a throwback to the ancient Greeks, who first coined the idea that everything is composed of tiny units called atoms, or the later erroneous view that an “ether” fills all of space. And here we sit, asking the question anew. On March midnights, a vast emptyish zone fills the southern sky between the constellations of Leo and Virgo. The identity crisis manifests in this area, found by following the Big Dipper’s arc in an enormous looping curve toward the blue star Spica. This region is home to the nearest large cluster of galaxies, the Virgo group. Virgo galaxies sit about 60 million lightyears away, which is why there’s no trace of them to the naked eye. Thousands of cities of suns lurk here, and show themselves through backyard telescopes as smudgy blobs peppering the Leo/Virgo boundary. Each has billions of stars. It’s the Times Square, the Main Street of our part of the universe. The problem is that each galaxy moves so fast that it should easily escape the gravitational clutches of the group as a whole. The galaxy cluster should have dissipated long ago, like a crowd dispersed by the police. It shouldn’t be there at all. While we’re at it, neither should our own little knot of 30 galaxies that lies at the distant fringes of Virgo’s influence. Nor should any of the other more distant galaxy clusters. Either gravity is oddly weak at great distances, or some unseen glue is holding all these galaxies together. This is the “dark matter” that everyone’s searching for. To supply this much gravitational attraction, there’s got to be six times more stuff in these galaxies than meets the eye. They can’t be stars, because we’d see stars. They can’t be dusty nebulae, because they’d block the light of the stars. They can’t be black holes, because that would influence motion. The dark area of Virgo, so initially uninteresting this month, proves a metaphor for one of the greatest celestial mysteries: If 85 percent of the cosmos is made of unknown stuff, then we (Sun, Earth and its tormented inhabitants) are an odd, atypical cosmic item – a minority substance in the cosmic census. Everyone has a different guess. Maybe it will really come down to some fundamentally strange aspect of gravity. But recent evidence indicates that some types of subatomic

If the dark matter is an entirely new form of material, unlike the baryonic matter that comprises our bodies and our planet, then we have been demoted once again, big-time.

terms of narrative pacing, Roma is not for everyone. Long attention spans are required to follow a story that is only very sporadically eventful. Cuarón’s highly personal screenplay about a middleclass family much like his own, leading a sheltered existence in a gated compound in Mexico City’s Roma neighborhood in 1970-71, draws the viewer in very gradually. The protagonist is a Oaxacan housemaid named Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), the scope of whose existence is defined almost totally by the minor daily dramas of the family who employ her – until she becomes pregnant by a young martial arts expert, Fermín (Jorge Antonio Guerrero), who flees from the news that he is soon to become a father. Cleo isn’t the only character with a problem with avoidant males. Sofía (Marina de Tavira), the mother of the household, spends most of the movie pretending to her three sons and one daughter that their father Antonio (Fernando Grediaga), a doctor, is in Canada doing medical research when he has in fact left her for another woman. Cleo is the rock who holds them all together through their time of marital stress, asking little for herself but finding bonds of mutual affection with the four children. In many ways a microcosm of class privilege, this family seems to move in a dream through a time of social and political unrest, curiously detached from swirling rumors of government land seizures and violent clashes between student protesters and right-wing militias. The boys play with guns, as do older relatives during a New Year’s visit to their hacienda in the country, with little awareness of the real-world implications of their actions. Cuarón lifts us out of the grim subtext of his story at intervals with flashes of magical realism: a young boy’s matter-of-fact recollections of what he did in a past life, the ill-omened wreck of a glass raised to toast the health of an expected baby, Cleo’s spontaneous ability to hold a difficult yoga pose with perfect balance. Roma is a beautiful work of visual and sonic art, but on many levels, an oddly opaque piece of storytelling. Your

level of emotional engagement may vary depending on how comfortable you feel with the trope of an indigenous woman as stoic, hardworking and undemanding, never taking the indignities of domestic work personally. Though we see this story through Cleo’s eyes – and imbibe heaping helpings of the director’s gratitude for her model, the Mixtec woman who mostly raised him – we don’t get that far inside her head. Her heart is showing for sure, and for many, that will be more than enough. – Frances Marion Platt

Verjuice workshop in Highland Verjuice, also called “verjus” or “ghoreh,” is the sour (and bitter) juice made from grapes that are harvested while still green and unripe. The juice is used in many culinary creations

neutrinos may have a bit of mass. Even if so, there wouldn’t be enough of them to add up to all the missing gravity. Maybe there are a nonillion baseballs out there, or comet nuclei. Every idea has problems. Many can supply some of the dark matter, but not all. It has to be something we cannot see, yet which exerts a gravitational pull. If the dark matter is an entirely new form of material, unlike the baryonic matter that comprises our bodies and our planet, then we have been demoted once again, big-time. Long ago we were displaced from our assumed position at the center of the universe, then nudged from the center of our galaxy. Now it may be that we are made of material that is not even representative of most of the universe. If you’ve been feeling odd, maybe that’s the reason. – Bob Berman Want to know more?

and is common in Persia, France and Australia. Verjuice can be used to add acidity in everything from baking to vinaigrettes. Also, because it is made from grapes, it doesn’t interfere with the flavor of an accompanying wine. The Hudson Valley is abundant in wine producers, and yet the commercial production of verjuice is scarce. Ali Yaghoubi, a grape-grower in Stormville, has two acres of table grapes in production and believes that table grapes make the best quality verjuice. In Yaghoubi’s home of Persia, verjuice is a popular commodity, and he is now looking at verjuice as a potential successful business venture. In the spring of 2018, he obtained funding through a SARE Farmer Grant proposal and with that, approached Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s agriculture senior resource educator, Jim O’Connell, to be his technical advisor. This grant concludes on March 31,

2019. Before it ends, Jim O’Connell and Ali Yaghoubi will present their results at a workshop on March 15. The workshop will begin at 1 p.m. Samples of verjuice will be available to taste.

farm-to-table foods, expertly whipped up into delectable appetizers, soups and salads, and main course entrées. From a Roasted Sage Kabocha Gnocchi starter to Grilled American Beef Wagyu Culotte with Ancho-Parsley Root Purée, the American Bounty menu reflects the abundance of seasonal dishes. The mission of Waldy Malouf “My idea for this campus is to change the restaurants’ reputations from fancy and stuffy and hard to get into and expensive,” says director of Food & Beverages Waldy Malouf. “They’re not. We usually take walk-ins, with no dress codes. Also, we’ve opened a tavern in American Bounty. We turned the old bar into a casual tavern where you can get salads, soups, sandwiches and burgers – to make it more appealing to a different clientele.” Indeed, the Tavern at American Bounty (open from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday) has been transformed into an inviting spot for drinks, a quick meal and a meeting with friends. From amazing bar snacks (no dry popcorn here) to burgers, the Tavern has become a destination for hungry locals. Malouf has been at the CIA for five years, initiating and overseeing big changes on

campus. He says that the college has worked to develop its relationship with the community on both sides of the river, to be less imposing. “We’ve opened the Post Road Brew House, which is a pop-up restaurant, but it will be full-time in the future; and, as we change our curriculum a bit, we’ll need a fourth restaurant for our students year-round. It’s closed right now, but will reopen in the summer or fall. It’s off-campus and still student-run, but with very high-quality food. “Bocuse was our first reinvention, and that’s doing really well. Next is Ristorante Caterina, our Italian restaurant. We’ll be doing the same thing there that we did in American Bounty, with a more casual bar setting. We’ve redone the Apple Pie Bakery Café completely. One area is now a grab-and-go for pastry, coffee and bread from what’s basically a takeout kiosk. We created a separate entrance for the dining room, which eliminated the lines. You used to have to wait to get in. We’ve lightened it up completely.” The college now runs a brewery on campus, which is part of an advanced beverage class. “We have one of the best brewmasters there,” Malouf says. “All the beer produced is sold in our restaurants and at our events. We just got a wholesale license in partnership with Brooklyn Brewery. We only do kegs, but you can buy a 32-ounce can, a growler, to take home.” The Egg, the Marriott Pavilion, dinner and a movie series Another relatively new addition to the campus is the Egg, a student dining facility on the riverfront that seats

Sweet retreats Watch syrup being made at a farm near you during New York State Maple Weekends

Y

ou’re not the only one whose sap starts running when the hours of daylight grow longer and the angle of sunlight rises higher. Bright, clear days, with some snow still covering the frozen soil, air temperatures creeping above the freezing mark and dropping below it again at night: We’ve got optimal conditions right now for harvesting maple syrup. With the largest resource of tappable maple trees within the US, and more than 2,000 maple sugarmakers, New York State is a powerhouse in the production of this sweet treat. Not only is maple sugar one of the purest sweeteners available – nothing is added, after all, only the water subtracted from the sap – but it’s also sustainably harvested. Being tapped doesn’t weaken the trees. Maybe it’s time to start thinking about ways to incorporate more maple syrup and sugar into your family’s diet in place of other, less health-friendly sweetening agents. March 23-24 and 30-31 are the official New York State Maple Weekends for 2019. Sugaring operations all over the state are inviting visitors to come witness the process of tapping the sap, boiling it down into syrup and making the sugar into cakes in whimsical shapes. Tastings and pancake breakfasts can be found somewhere near you. Here are some mid-Hudson Valley sugarhouses offering sugarbush tours, demonstrations and community activities during the next two weekends:

500. “It’s also open to the public – although I recommend the public comes on weekends, when the population of the school drops from 2,000 to about 700. During the week it’s busy. There’s outdoor dining in good weather. The food is great and very inexpensive.” The grandest accomplishment that Malouf has overseen is the Marriott Pavilion, a 300-seat conference center with an 800-seat theater, the Ecolab Auditorium. Unveiled in 2014, the facility has expanded the CIA’s ability to advance culinary education. Hosting various gatherings to promote industrywide innovation, the space allows for special events such as Menus of Change, coming up in June. “In partnership with Harvard, we invite about 500 people from all over the world to this event to explore changing the way people eat to a more plant-forward emphasis and not quite so heavy on the animal protein. So, instead of a 32-ounce steak and some creamed spinach, you do a lot of sautéed spinach with a smaller steak, for example. We’ve also hosted the Hudson Valley Economic Development Beverage Summit [this year on Tuesday, May 14] and others. “We’ve opened the campus for special events, corporate events, weddings, catering on-site events, which we haven’t done for years. Other special events are scheduled for this spring and summer,” says Malouf. “We’re doing a lot with Women’s History Month right now. On three Friday nights, we’re doing dinner and a movie. For example, at Bocuse, we

screened Julie and Julia in the theater. “We’ll be in American Bounty on Friday, March 15, and the movie will be Commanding the Table, highlighting the life and influence of Ella Brennan, who had Creole restaurants in New Orleans, the most famous of which was opened in 1948. It became a huge institution. Emeril Lagasse was a chef there, and Paul Prudhomme. Ella was the queen of the dining room. In a man’s world, she really took over.” The film series will end on Friday, March 22 at Ristorante Caterina de’ Medici with The Goddesses of Food, which documents the many female chefs around the world. Dinner at 7 p.m. and the movie at 9:30 cost $55 per person; a discussion follows each screening. A l s o happening this month: Awardwinning chefs Lidia Bastanisch, Melissa Kelly and Eugenie Brazier are honored by their signature recipes being served in the three main restaurants. In 1938, Brazier became the first female chef running a three-star Michelin restaurant, La Mère Brazier, in France. Kelly, a CIA alumna, co-founded the Primo Restaurant in Maine and is its executive chef, specializing in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. Bastianich, beloved celebrity television host, author of multiple cookbooks and restaurateur (four New York City restaurants: Felidia, Becco, Esca and Del Posto, and Lidia’s in Pittsburgh and Kansas City), was recently the keynote speaker at CIA commencement ceremonies.

“The building, the whole campus can be a little intimidating. The reality is that we see about 300,000 visitors a year. The CIA is the largest tourist attraction in this region.”

“The dedication and passion to food and drink – it has become huge in this region,” says Malouf, who wrote The Hudson Valley Cookbook 25 years ago, before the words “farm-to-table” were uttered. “At that point we were saying how this region was going to change into a food destination, with agricultural tourism, all that stuff. It didn’t happen as quickly as we thought it would – I guess I was a little ahead of my time – but it’s certainly happening now.” “On June 1, we’re doing a Movable Feast for our fourth year. In the big chapel at Farquharson Hall, we’ll have a reception for about 275 people, then we divide them into groups of 80 to 85. One group goes to each of the restaurants, has one course, then they all get up and go to another restaurant, with ten minutes in between of entertainment – music and a magician – which gives the staff time to clear and reset for the second course, and at the third restaurant you have your main course and dessert. We get people to sit with different people at each seating. It’s a fun thing. CIA students need the community to come to campus restaurants “Doing these types of events helps us reach out into the community so they’re not scared of the ‘pearly gates.’ The building, the whole campus can be a little intimidating. The reality is that we see about 300,000 visitors a year. The CIA is the largest tourist attraction in this region. That’s how we keep the restaurants open. We need the community to come to the restaurants, each averaging 80 to 100 seats. We need customers in order for the students to run the restaurants. If a restaurant is empty, they’re not getting the education that they’re supposed to. It’s been my goal since I’ve been here to do things that attract the community.” Malouf has come up through the

culinary trenches, opening and operating seven restaurants of his own in the past. “From an operational side, when you’re a chef/owner it’s different than being an executive chef. You have to run the restaurant business, too. So I understand the finances, work with accountants, point-of-sale systems, servers, buying china/glass/silver, chairs and tabletops, setting up bars, hiring and firing and scheduling. That’s actually what this school teaches now. Cooking is what we started doing [in 1946], and you still get a very good base of cooking training here. But we’ve become a hospitality college offering a BA degree and a Master’s in Food Business and Wine Management.” As for those other prix-fixe options now running at the French restaurant Bocuse (open Tuesday through Friday) and the Italian Ristorante Caterina (open Monday through Friday), check the website for full menus at www.ciarestaurantgroup. com.

ART The Dorsky begins a new chapter Change in personnel at New Paltz museum takes advisory board by surprise

T

he February 15 announcement by SUNY-New Paltz provost Lorin Basen Arnold that Sara Pasti, the Neil C. Trager director of the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, was moving into a new role in charge of the museum’s external relations and advancement took the university community by surprise. The members of the museum’s Advisory Board hadn’t been sent the provost’s e-mail, which went to faculty members and college staff. When they got the message, board members expressed shock. Pasti had been director of the museum for a decade. Arnold’s e-mail had noted that Wayne Lempka, the museum’s manager of art collections, was assuming the position of interim director. Curator Anastasia James, a year on the job, was leaving. “The fact that the museum Advisory Board was not consulted or informed prior to the action, and that it was sent out to the college community in a mass e-mailing and not to the Advisory Board ahead of time, was very disturbing,” wrote board chair Ward Mintz in an e-mailed statement. “Since then we have received sincere apologies from the administration for what happened.” President Donald Christian and provost Arnold have since had two meetings with the Advisory Board. Noting “the considerable financial support the Dorsky Advisory Board has provided to the college over the years,” Mintz concluded that he and his colleagues were “committed to continuing our constructive conversations

The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art features more than 9,000 square feet of exhibition space in six galleries. Its permanent collection comprises more than 5,000 works of American Art (with emphasis on the Hudson Valley and Catskill Regions), 19th, 20th and 21st century photography, metals, and a "world collection" of art and artifacts dating back to ancient times and representing diverse cultures.

with the administration and working together to assure the museum’s excellence.” Statements from the college and Pasti herself indicate that she will now be working part-time for the museum in a phased-out retirement. Did Pasti choose to step down as director, or was she forced out? If Pasti stepped down, why wasn’t a succession plan in place? Was the concurrent departure of curator James, who left to accept a position at the Lucas Museum of Art in Los Angeles, a coincidence, or was it connected to some breakdown in relations with Pasti? Pasti e-mailed a statement indicating that she was amenable to her new role focusing on museum development and external relations (“two areas I love”), and noted that her reduction in hours and pending retirement “allow me to slow down from the day-to-day rigor of administering the museum and allow me to use more of my expertise to support it,” as well as give her the opportunity “to return to the consulting practice” that she had prior to her tenure at the Dorsky.

the college plans to have a new director in place by the summer of 2020. In the interim, “We anticipate hiring a consultant with curatorial experience and perspective to assist with future major exhibitions, aid in facilities and other planning.” In addition, “ S a r a [ Pa s t i ] will provide information and consult with Wayne during this transition period and assist the campus as we move toward hiring the museum’s next director.” A part-time staff member will also become full-time, the e-mail noted.

Mending museum fences The two meetings of the Advisory Board with Christian and Arnold resulted in a “robust” discussion, according to board member Arthur Anderson. There is now a better understanding about the crucial role played by the Advisory Board in the museum’s functioning. Anderson reported that the “venting” by board members at the first meeting was followed by more constructive discussion at the second session, focusing on “the direction we want the museum to take and defining the roles and responsibility of the Advisory Board.” “After the sturm und drang, the good news is that, except for the limitation of what the administration could say about the personnel decision” – it is a unionized campus – “we have the opportunity to develop a more open and robust communication between the Advisory Board and the president and provost,” Anderson said. The provost, he added, was relatively new, “and we hadn’t seen much of her except at openings. Now we have a direct line of communication.” P a s t i previously dealt directly with the administration. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that the museum began reporting to the provost, according to Neil Trager, the museum’s founder and first director (he retired in 2008 and now lives in New Mexico). Trager said in a phone interview that he reported to the dean of the School of Fine and Performing Arts when he was director. “There were six departments fighting for the same pool of money,” he said. “The provost has a bigger pool,” which means that reporting to her “in the long run is a good thing.” For his part, Trager conceded that he

The opening of the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY-New Paltz in 2001 transformed the original College Art Gallery into one of the leading art museums in the region. Neil Trager is digging with the sixth shovel from the left.

The founding: Neil Trager’s dream

T

he Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art started out as a dream. It was a dream that Neil Trager had shortly after he was hired to direct the college art gallery at SUNY-New Paltz, in 1982. Trager was a photographer who had left New York City to work as a curator and teacher at the Catskill Center for Photography (now the Center for Photography at Woodstock), which led to a position teaching photography at SUNY-New Paltz, which in turn led to the gallery gig. Trager discovered that he really liked running the gallery, and got a certificate in museum management. In the mid-1980s he met Samuel Dorsky, who’d made a fortune in the garment industry and ran a gallery in the City. After the two men became good friends, Dorsky started loaning work to the college gallery. Trager was frustrated that the gallery didn’t have enough space to show the permanent collection on a regular basis. Nor could the art be used for teaching purposes. “Five or six years into my tenure, I went to the college president Alice Chandler and said, ‘We need to change the name to the College Museum, because we have a collection of 1,500 good-quality objects.’ She said, ‘It’s not a museum,’ and I said, ‘We are.’ I thought, ‘We’ve got to build a museum.’ It’s like a spirit went through me.” After introducing Dorsky to Chandler, he and the president “decided to cultivate Sam further and invited him to a dinner. Alice made her pitch, and then he turned to me and said, ‘If I gave you a lot of money, what would you do with it?’ I told him, ‘I have a dream for a museum.’ “A few months later, at the gallery’s annual fundraising gala – it was in 1993 – Sam called me up before the event and asked to go for a ride in the countryside. He said, ‘I know you want money, but if you want to build this wing, you have to prove three things to me: that the college wants it, the college will support it and the community will support it.’ I didn’t answer him at the time, and at dinner I told the president the three conditions he’d asked for. She responded, ‘I’ll swim to Great Neck [where Sam lived] with the contract in my teeth.’ She asked what I needed and I said a curator and she said, ‘You got it.’ To prove community support, I suggested starting a Friends group.” That night, Dorsky pledged $350,000, but unfortunately he died before the contracts could be drawn up, which meant that Trager had to get his four children on board. “While we were negotiating, the college’s vice president of finance discovered a state initiative to promote public/private partnerships for construction, resulting in a seven-to-one matching grant for Sam’s money.’ The wing was now a 9,000-square-foot museum, but other challenges arose. The contractors walked off the job in the middle of construction, and the architect’s design resulted in a building $1 million over budget. Trager raised a third of the money “pretty quickly,” and the college came up with the remainder. The museum opened in November 2001, and to commemorate 9/11, one of the exhibitions featured a series of lithographs by George Bellows called the War series, recalled Trager. He served as director, hired a curator, collections manager Wayne Lempka and in 2007, an assistant, Sara Pasti, who became director after he retired in 2008. The Friends morphed into an Advisory Board “that was directly related to museum management and programs. I recruited people for the board I knew through the art, university and business worlds, trying to build a diverse group with expertise to share.” Six of the original members continue to serve today. “I established a really solid foundation,” Trager said. “Sara did a good job and built on that foundation. I’m proud of what the museum has become, and I just hope it continues to grow.” – Lynn Woods

had been “shaken a little bit” when he received the provost’s e-mail, especially since the directorship was endowed in his name. “It was a great honor when this board created that when I retired, and it’s my legacy,” he said. The turn of events that transpired “seems a little strange, since there was no hint Sara was going to retire,” Trager added. Further, it had been “upsetting” that the curator, James, had left after such a short tenure. Trager believes, however, that the plan going forward is sound: “Wayne is a veteran, and the college is stepping up with more staff, which should get them through this.” Time, talent and treasure The Dorsky has a collection of 6,000 objects and is dedicated to showcasing both important contemporary and modern art, as well as the region’s historical legacy. Major shows have included retrospectives of Hudson

Valley painter Jervis McEntee and Woodstock artists Eugene Speicher and Eugene Ludins, as well as work by Alice Neel, Judy Pfaff, the recently deceased Robert Morris and Carolee Schneemann and other distinguished contemporary, locally based artists such as Andrew Lyght and Linda Mary Montana. The museum has also had exhibitions of contemporary art reflecting other cultures, including Native American (with works borrowed from the New York State Museum), African and Tibetan. Its photography gallery, currently showing the recently donated collection of Marcuse Pfeiffer, has had several shows of photographs donated by Howard Greenberg, a major supporter. Unlike most college galleries, the Dorsky is supported not just by a Friends group (although there is a such a group, which oversees membership), but also by the Advisory Board, whose members

contribute what Trager said were “the three key Ts: time, talent and treasure.” “Our purpose is to act as an external advisor and support group, to provide useful and independent expertise and perspective,” which touches on every aspect of the museum’s operations, said Mintz. It includes “long-range and institutional planning, advising and assisting the museum audience by building up the public relations, marketing, fundraising and programming. The Advisory Board endeavors to promote collaborative relationships between the museum, college, community and other stakeholders as a leading cultural institution.” The Advisory Board includes museum professionals, collectors and members of the Dorsky family. It works with numerous committees addressing education, programming, exhibitions and fundraising. Outside participants include retired curators from the Metropolitan

Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, El Museo del Barrio and the Jewish Museum, as well as experts such as Dr. Linda Ferber, chair of the American Art Department at the Brooklyn Museum and director of the museum division for the New-York Historical Society, and Tom Wolfe, who teaches at Bard College and is an expert on the early years of the Woodstock art colony. “We’re unusual in that we’re so active and bring in a good deal of money. We’re also collectors and know collectors,” Mintz said. Mintz’s resume includes launching the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning in Queens and founding the Nassau County Museum of Art. He was head of museum programming for the New York State Council on the Arts, and deputy director at the Newark Museum and the Jewish Museum. The Advisory Board also attracts significant funds to the college. According to Mintz, in the last 20 years it has raised a third of the donations to the SUNYNew Paltz Foundation, the college’s main vehicle for attracting private money. Last year, the board raised more than $112,000, the bulk of it from its annual Art Uncorked fundraiser, with Karen and Noah Dorsky, two of Sam’s four children, playing a major role. (Brother David was chair of the board until recently, and sister Sara endowed one of the galleries.) An opportunity for a reset According to Kaczmarek’s e-mail, the college and state provide $600,316 in salaries and benefits for six staff positions as well as $55,000 in student employee salaries and other expenses. State funds funneled through the college pay additional expenses in excess of $1 million. Last year the museum received a $1.5 million bequest from the Susan Wisherd estate, two-thirds of which will be put in an endowment fund. The remaining third will pay for an upgrade of the storage facilities for the Dorsky’s collection, to be completed this summer. Anderson is hopeful that the storage upgrade will enable the Dorsky to receive accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums. Membership “is a seal of approval, and it could help attract funding,” he said. The initiative has the support of President Christian and provost Arnold. Trager is also supportive: “The museum is approaching its 20th anniversary, and this would be an important recognition

that implies a major commitment to best practices in the field.” Mintz noted that the other three art museums in the SUNY system – the Neuberger at SUNYPurchase, the University Art Museum at SUNY-Albany and the Museum at FIT at the Fashion Institute of Technology – are all accredited. “We will continue our conversations with the administration, and we have offered our help and expertise as the museum goes forward,” concluded Mintz. “We want to be of use in a really substantial way, as has been the case in the past. We’ve made a lot of suggestions about what steps to take as far as the staffing is concerned. The president is committed to good communications and having the best relationship with the Advisory Board.” What happens next? “We’ve asked for the provost to get back to us in a couple of weeks with suggestions on how to move forward in all these areas, including the

direct involvement of the Advisory Board in defining the role of the new director and curator,” Anderson said. “We will be involved in that process, rather than have it be primarily an academic decision. It’s an opportunity to reset how we want the museum to move forward. Neil initially did everything; he was the director and hired independent curators. Sara came in with more administrative experience. Now we’re beginning the third chapter.” – Lynn Woods

Coming to an envelope near you US Postal Service to honor Ellsworth Kelly, major 20th-century artist from the Hudson Valley he US Postal Service just announced it will release a new set of stamps, on a date yet to be announced, honoring a major 20th-century artist from the Hudson Valley, Ellsworth Kelly. The series of ten stamps includes reproductions of the paintings Yellow White (1961), Colors for a Large Wall (1951), Blue Red Rocker (1963), Spectrum I (1953), South Ferry (1956), Blue Green (1962), Orange Red Relief ( for Delphine Seyrig) (1990), Meschers (1951), Red Blue (1964) and Gaza (1956). Characterized by bright-colored, crisply detailed geometric forms, Kelly’s paintings are often classified together with the Color Field school of Abstract Expressionism and the later Hard-Edged school. But he worked independently from both movements, spending the New York heyday of the former studying in Europe

and Barnett Newman were among his downtown neighbors. Kelly decided that what he had to contribute to the Manhattan art scene was a return to the vivid use of color. By 1956 he’d had his first solo show in New York, at the Betty Parsons Gallery, and three years later he was included in “16 Americans” at the Museum of Modern Art. He began to experiment with sculpture, which bled into his painting work in the formed of shaped canvases. Among his best-known works in that category are the ell-shaped “Chatham Series,” a product of his move upstate in the early 1970s. Seeking a large,

He spent a lot of time looking at the shapes of shadows and windows, studying Romanesque and Byzantine art and architecture, experimenting with automatic drawing. Before long he had left representational art well behind. But Kelly never managed to master French, which hampered his ability to get his work shown, and by 1953 he had been evicted from his Paris studio. He decided – with some trepidation, as he wasn’t a fan of the Abstract Expressionism then exemplified by the likes of Pollock and De Kooning – to return to New York, with some financial assistance from his friend Alexander Calder.

pedestrian bridge adjacent to the existing bridge structure, and extending north approximately 0.77 miles along the east side of US Route 209 to the intersection of the County-owned Ulster & Delaware (“U&D”) Railroad corridor. The trail would then extend approximately 1.0 mile eastward along the U&D corridor to Washington Avenue. This alternative was not considered feasible as it increases exposure of trail users to the traffic along the highway, requires the construction of two (2) new bridge structures crossing the Esopus Creek, creates a more indirect route to the City of Kingston, and is in conflict with the operation of tourism railroad operations on the U&D corridor in this area. The alternative was deemed as not meeting the public purposes of the Project. THE GENERAL EFFECT OF THE PROPOSED PUBLIC PROJECT ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND RESIDENTS OF THE LOCALITY: State Environmental Quality Review Act Classification: The Project as proposed is classified as an Unlisted Action per 6NYCRR Part 617, Subpart 4(b)(6) of Title 6 of the Implementing Regulations of the Official Codes, Rules, and Regulations of New York State (“SEQRA”). The County of Ulster conducted uncoordinated review as permitted under SEQRA. After review of the Environmental Assessment and Draft Design Report prepared by the County’s consultants, the County Legislature pursuant to Resolution No. 168 of March 15, 2016, issued a determination of non-significance (“Negative Declaration”) in accordance with SEQRA, identifying the Project as one that will not have a significant adverse effect on the environment. Nationa l Env ironmenta l Polic y Ac t (“NEPA”): The project is a C-List Categorical Exclusion under NEPA. Pedestrian facility projects are actions listed under the C list in 23 CFR 771.117 (c). The federal Environmental Approval Worksheet was completed for the project. The NYSDOT/FHWA acted as the lead agency for the final environmental determination under provisions of NEPA concurrence, which was made on April 3, 2018. The proposed Project has been designed to minimize environmental impacts to the greatest extent possible and maximize positive impacts on the local community. The proposed Project will have no adverse effect on the residents of the locality, cultural resources, or the environment.

LEGAL NOTICE SY NOPSIS OF EMINEN T DOMAIN PROCEDURE LAW DETERMINATION AND FINDINGS KINGSTON RAIL TRAIL- PIN 8758.04 In accordance with Section 204 of the New York State Eminent Domain Procedure Law, a synopsis is hereby given of the Determination and Findings regarding the acquisition of real property rights required for the Kingston Rail Trail, PIN 8758.04, City of Kingston, Town of Ulster, and Town of Hurley, County of Ulster, State of New York. The Determination and Findings were adopted by the Ulster County Legislature pursuant to Resolution No. 55, dated February 19, 2019. Copies of the Determination and Findings will be forwarded upon written request without cost. THE PUBLIC USE, BENEFIT, OR PURPOSE TO BE SERVED BY THE PROPOSED PUBLIC PROJECT INCLUDE: Further develop an interconnected rail trail system connecting the City of Kingston and Town of Ulster to the existing O&W Rail Trail in the Towns of Hurley, Marbletown and Rochester by closing a critical cap in the existing system between the City of Kingston and the O&W (Hurley) Rail Trail. Provide safer pedestrian and bicycle access across the significant barriers that include the Esopus Creek and the NYS Thruway. Expand recreational opportunities for local residents and visitors, including for persons with disabilities and for those of all skill levels and age groups Increase tourism and economic development in Ulster County Improve the quality of life for local residents THE APPROXIMATE LOCATION FOR THE PROPOSED PUBLIC PROJECT AND THE REASONS FOR SELECTION OF THAT LOCATION: The proposed public Project is located in the Town of Hurley, Town of Ulster and City of Kingston extending from the existing O&W (Hurley) Rail Trail along U.S. Route 209 eastward to Washington Avenue in the City of Kingston following the general alignment of the abandoned Ontario & Western “O&W” Railway right-of-way. The alternative for “Reconstruction- Utilizing O&W Railroad Corridor terminating at Washington Avenue” (Alternative B, Option B-1) is considered the “Preferred Alternative.” The alternatives considered for the proposed public Project are as follows: Alternative A: The No Build “Null” Alternative proposes no action. This alternative does not address any of the Project public purposes. This alternative was retained only as a baseline for comparison to the preferred alternative and does not meet the public purposes of the Project. Alternative B (Option B-1): The “Reconstruction- Dedicated Multi-Use Trail along O&W Railroad Corridor” Alternative would construct the Multi-Use Trail along the abandoned Ontario & Western (“O&W”) Railway corridor for 1.8 miles from the existing O&W (Hurley) Rail Trail along US Route 209, through the exiting I-87 underpass, to Washington Avenue (State Bicycle Route 28) in Kingston. This alternative maximizes the use of the abandoned and unimproved O&W Railroad right-of-way, has logical access points and links, is not overly complicated from an engineering and construction perspective, is the most direct route from the City of Kingston to the exiting Hurley Rail Trail, and considers local land use plans and projects. This alternative best satisfies the project objectives and is considered the Preferred Alternative. Alternative B (Option B-2): The “Reconstruction- Dedicated Multi-Use Trail along U&D Railroad Corridor” Alternative would construct the Multi-Use Trail starting at the existing O&W (Hurley) Rail Trail along US Route 209, crossing the Esopus Creek via a new

This pure modernist home is jaw-dropping, inside and out, clearly having been designed to take full advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings. As you step inside, you immediately notice a sense of expansiveness and the quality of the light streaming in from the massive windows. Built in 2012 to the highest speciďŹ cations by noted builder Shawn Delisio of Greenland Building, the mechanicals are topend, including geothermal radiant heat throughout and owned solar panels (with backup propane) that power the entire house - and dramatically reduced utility cost. The location between Woodstock (6 miles) and Kingston (15 miles) is easy to from NYC and perfectly positioned to take advantage of everything people love about this area: hiking, skiing, biking, or simply exploring all of the little villages and towns nearby. The existing structure and location would make realizing your dreams more than worth the investment! .........................................................$1,150,000
