The 174 Dutchess County Fair

W

hat’s that you say? Nothing ever changes at the Dutchess County Fair? Well, in all fairness – no pun intended – that’s kind of the point: generations of families, one after another, all attending the same annual agri-tainment spectacular that is the Dutchess Fair; New York State’s second-largest, drawing half a million people over its six-day run on 162 acres. The 174th Dutchess County Fair will open on Tuesday, August 20. Fair hours are from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day through Sunday, August 25. Opening day is “$10 Tuesday,” when visitors all day are offered $10 admission. For the remainder of the fair, admission costs $15 for adults, and kids age 11 and under get in free. And what do you know? There is something new at the fair this year, with the admission price for seniors (over age 65) and military personnel with ID (active or retired) dropping a few bucks to just $8 every day. And wristband days, on which visitors pay $25 for unlimited rides all day, have been extended to Wednesday and Thursday. The buy-one, get-one-half-price ticket promotion for Sunday has been eliminated this year, but on Thursday, the budget-conscious will get in for $7 if arriving after 5 p.m. Advance tickets are available online for regular adult admission only, offering a $3 discount but with a convenience fee applied. Ten-ride tickets cost $20 (a 50 percent savings) if purchased by midnight August 20, available online or at select retailers (a list is available on the event

website). A six-day admission pass for $50 is also available if purchased in advance by that same date. The first four nights of the fair feature a grandstand concert at 7:30 p.m. An advance combination ticket that includes admission to the fair and the concert is available for $35, or $40 on the day of the show (slightly higher for Friday’s concert by Daughtry). Opening night on Tuesday, August 20 features LANCO, a country music band signed to a Nashville label. Wednesday, August 21 brings Dylan Scott with the Cadillac Three to the stage. LoCash, a country music duo formerly known as the LoCash Cowboys, will perform with special guest Ross Ellis on Thursday, August 22. On Friday, August 23, the performance is by Daughtry, a rock band whose frontman was a finalist on a season of American Idol. Tickets for that show cost $37 in advance, $42 on the day of the show. The first Dutchess County Fair was held in 1842. (For those doing quick math in their heads who see a discrepancy here with this being the 174th fair, the 1916-to1918 fairs were canceled due to finances and wartime issues.) The county fair came to Springbrook Park in Rhinebeck, the site now known as the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, for the first time in 1919. County fairs were initially all about showcasing the talents of the farmer and bringing farmers together. But, while the entertainment and midway rides of the modern county fair have become an integral part of the picture, the Dutchess County Fair, at its heart, is still about its

origins. Visitors to the current iteration will see thousands of exhibits celebrating our agricultural heritage. Twelve acres of the site will be given over to Livestock Hill, where 12 barns will house dairy cows, beef cattle, sheep, goats, poultry, rabbits and more. Three show arenas will host full daily schedules of judging, and milking demonstrations, a wool workroom and sheepshearing will be on view. The Salute to Agriculture tent includes the Dairy Birthing Center, which allows spectators to witness the live birth of a calf, along with displays of award-winning crops and produce. Kids (children, that is, not baby goats) can visit the AgVenture Kids’ Activity Tent where youngsters aged 3 to 10 can dig up potatoes from a sandbox, shear a JOHN HAYES

wooden-and-woolen sheep, pick apples from a plywood tree and “milk” Dutchess the cow before taking their products to a warehouse, where they will sell their efforts for “funny money,” their work earning them a half-pint of milk or carrot sticks. (The idea is to show them that food doesn’t just appear on grocery shelves.) The complete list of activities is far too numerous to cover in detail here, but it’s safe to say there is something for everyone. Racing pigs, stiltwalkers, two horse show rings, equestrian events and a farrier competition, an antique tractor pull, a mentalist demonstration, strolling musicians, a scavenger hunt, Frisbee dogs, selfie spots, a petting zoo, a fiddling contest, police K-9 demonstrations and a butterfly encounter are just the

sellers willing to hold purchases until weary fairgoers are ready to go home for the day. And then there’s the food.

Its members include an engineer, construction manager, logistics professional, visual artists, educators and restoration ecologists drawn from the not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) Arm-of-theSea Theater’s staff, board and associates. Anybody wishing to contribute to the project may find out more by e-mailing saugertiestidewatercenter@gmail.com. Arm-of-the-Sea was founded 37 years ago as “an experimental hybrid performance group combining art, ecology and social action,” and according to its founders, the group continues to experiment with performance art as “a symbolic visual language.” But reading about the group or even watching its videos and seeing a live performance are decidedly two different things, Wadden reminds us. “The website is just a shadow on the cave wall.

nder the artistic direction of co-founders Patrick Wadden and Marlena Marallo, Arm-of-the-Sea Theater creates contemporary works of mask and puppet theater in the style of magical realism. The performances fuse live music with larger-than-life puppet characters, shadow projections, masked dancers and low-tech theatrical devices to tell “true tall tales” inspired by regional history, ecology and current events. The Saugerties-based ensemble has toured the Northeast since 1982, performing at schools, festivals and community cultural centers, but every August it comes home for its annual outdoor summer production, the Esopus Creek Puppet Suite. This year’s show, “Keep that Lamp Trimmed ‘n’ Burning,” is inspired by the 150th anniversary of the Saugerties Lighthouse. The three-day run of performances at Tina Chorvas Waterfront Park on East Bridge Street in the Village of Saugerties will take place Friday through Sunday, August 16 to 18 at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $12 for adults and $5 for children, available online at https:// bit.ly/2P3AsFc or at the park entrance each night. Audience members are encouraged to arrive early and bring lawn seating. In the event of inclement weather, the performance may be moved to St. Mary’s Church Hall at 23 Cedar Street in Saugerties. Tina Chorvas Park is adjacent to the site of what will be – at long last – Arm-of-theSea’s permanent home. When completed, the Tidewater Center for Hudson River Arts and Science will be a multifaceted cultural park and performance center with a 100-seat outdoor amphitheatre and facilities for river-related programs and citizen science projects. Built on a neglected, much-graffitied industrial site on the Esopus Creek, once home to the circa-1880 Sheffield Paper Company, the Tidewater Center will also host a waterworks playground related to

It will be all of those things and more.” The site was acquired in 1999 by the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, who

I

t has been a tumultuous 50th anniversary for the cultural landmark that is the Woodstock Festival. The date is now upon us and the picture has settled: It’s sold out Ringo, Santana and Fogerty shows at the original site in Bethel and a Balkanized spate of micro-observations elsewhere. Right in Woodstock, however, Radio Woodstock has ambitious plans for the weekend. WDST is famous as one of the pioneers of independent radio and the adult alternative format in particular. But that very independence is what allows the station to shift gears when required. On the weekend of August 16 through 18, Radio Woodstock is all about Yasgur’s Farm. Starting at 5:07 p.m. on Friday, August 16 with Richie Havens and ending Monday morning with Jimi Hendrix,

We are thrilled to offer our listeners the ability to experience the music and the sounds from Yasgur’s Farm

Colony hosts Eric Squindo’s Basement Tapes tribute on Sunday Historically s p e a k i n g , Dylan was a house guest in Woodstock; but the Band, they were the house band. While the Band backed Dylan on several records and tours, nothing better cap-

tures the intensely collaborative and equal nature of the relationship better than The Basement Tapes. Released in 1975, The Basement Tapes incorporated original compositions, contemporary covers and traditional material drawn from many styles of American music. It reveals Bob, Rick, Levon, Richard, Garth and Robbie as part madmen, part downright scholars of the tradition, and it remains a high point in unfettered, fecund creativity and rooted experimentalism. The songwriter Eric Squindo (Mister Roper, The Uncommon) has organized a tribute to this accidental masterpiece on Sunday, August 18 at Colony in Woodstock. This follows Squindo’s successful Townes Van Zandt tribute at Colony and Woody Guthrie tribute at the Towne Crier in Beacon. Squindo has hand-picked the artists for this show to ensure an unforgettable night of solo and band performances and collaborations, culminating in a jam session with all the players. Tickets cost $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Basement Tapes tribute with Eric Squindo & friends Sunday, Aug. 18, 8 p.m. $20/$15 Colony 22 Rock City Rd., Woodstock

Ella Ray Kondrat to perform at Colony

As an explicit reaction to careerism and hierarchy in music and production, the style that came to be called “freak folkâ€? in the early Aughts allowed its people to go as rustic, naĂŻve and D-I-Y as they wanted, without judgment or commercial marginalization. Professionalism in all its forms was (rightly) regarded with suspicion. Allowed and encouraged were broken guitars, toy instruments found underfoot, vocals whispered into predawn tape hiss so as not to wake the other interns. No percussion required except maybe the sound of a kindly-ifnon-organic farmer hammering a screen door back into shape across the street. Distribution and booking were digital grassroots, and stars were made this way: stars fraught with the ethical complications that attend the punk narrative in all its guises. Like so many refreshing liberations, the moment that gave us such hermetic visionaries as Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart was soon to become a codified set of vocal manners and musical gestures – but never mind that neverending story. It’s going to happen to your revolution, too. The interesting thing about the freak folk equation was the freak part. The great American folk music tradition may be radical in its social critique, but it is generally reactionary in its prescription, espousing a return to the old tools, a bare-bones, organic materialism and such quaint values as community and conservation. And the young-person folk of the early Aughts was fastidiously bare-bones and collectivist – arguably to a fault. But in a delightful inconsistency and loophole, the style allowed generously for psychedelic excess, a Garden-of-Eden production opulence, as long as it remained naĂŻve, populist and (this!) affordable. Studio polish was adamantly not part of the value, but a rapturous, incongruous maximalism could be: sudden outbursts of found sound, solipsistic choirs, the pawing of kalimbas and soft mallets, insect onomatopoeia, tape-splice disjunction. In a way, the psychedelic dimension of 2000s indie-folk sounds much like the Outsider

four-track cassette aesthetic of the predigital ’80s, with expanded permissions in the age of unlimited overdubs for all. Kingston-headquartered songwriter Ella Ray Kondrat’s solo debut record Hum to Your Heart is as vibrant, challenging and original a contribution to this tradition as I have heard in a very long time. And it embodies this paradox of raw with an allowance for one element of extravagance. Across its eight devilishly musical and imaginative compositions, Hum to Your Heart’s basal setting is one woman: her syrupy, melismatic vocals and her fingerpicked, throaty acoustic guitar. But only 40 seconds into “Bringing Myself Back Home,â€? Hum to your Heart announces its one grand permission, its loophole: lush, reverb swamped choirs of Ellas, sometimes deployed in deep and rich block chords, other times in savvy counterpoint. There’s a viola here and there (via Jacquelyn Timberlake) and some incidental percussion (via producer Eli Winograd), but otherwise this is the work of one woman and a chorale of selves. Fitting, then, that the songs here are dominated by themes of identity – specifically, the question of an essential, spiritual self versus selves defined and constituted in relation to others, significant others. Hum to Your Heart, as the title more than a little implies, comes down pretty strongly in favor of self-definition, -awareness and -determination, frequently within a feminist context. But if you are hearing a collection of spiritual hippie platitudes‌ well, wrong. In her lyrical constructions as in her mysteriously Eastern-tinged, agile, alien-soul melodies, Ella Ray is elusive, sophisticated and way, way beyond easy reduction. If there were any piety here, it would be roundly banished by the time you get to the cheeky, ironic closer, “Do You Mind,â€? an almost-Tin Pan Alley musing on the paradoxical relationship between heartbreak and creative fecundity. “Do you mind,â€? the singer asks, “breaking my heart just a little bit? I’ve got a show tonight.â€? That may be Hum to Your Heart’s lone moment of smartass cutesiness. Its moments of gravity and sui generis artsong are countless: the bluesy psychedelia of “Let Me Comeâ€?; the mild “Teach Your Childrenâ€? didacticism of “Rub the Soles,â€? co-written with her late grandfather and sung with her sister, the well-known and oft-employed Hudson Valley blues and folksinger Katy Kondrat. But perhaps the winner among winners here is the elegant, tragic/triumphant “I Married Columbus,â€? an exceptionally beautiful classic-in-waiting. Hum to Your Heart’s pithy concision is a strength if not a necessity, as this is

The Fugs will exorcise Washington again, from Byrdcliffe, on Saturday

Rock music has always prided itself on being rebellious, but throughout its history, there have been varying levels of how conceptually outrĂŠ, lyrically lewd or politically provocative a group or individual performer was willing to be. In the 1960s, no band defied social taboos with such unrestrained glee as the Fugs. Though intellectually well-grounded in both the Beat movement and the visionary Romantic poetry of William Blake, the Fugs quickly became associated with deliberately scatological songs such as the iconic, tongue-twisting “Boobs a Lot.â€? They recorded seven albums – the second one the subject of an obscenity investigation by the FBI – but few radio outlets dared play them besides Pacifica stations like WBAI. Consid-

ering how many later punk bands cited them as a source of inspiration, one might fairly describe the Fugs as “seminal� in more ways than one. More importantly from a historical perspective, they were unabashedly confrontational with the Powers that Be, famously providing the musical score for the attempt to levitate and exorcise the Pentagon during the October 1967 March on Washington to protest the Vietnam War, as documented in Norman Mailer’s Pulitzerwinning nonfiction novel The Armies of the Night. The chant of “Out, demons, out!� will ring out once again with new DC foes in mind, with audience participation led by founding Fug and longtime Woodstock resident Ed Sanders, in a performance on August 17 at the Byrdcliffe Barn commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival. It’s the same venue that has hosted various Fugs reunions since the band reformed in 1985 with “new� members Steve Taylor, Coby Batty and Scott Petito, all three of whom will be joining Sanders onstage this time around. While Fugs co-founder Tuli Kupferberg died in 2010, attendees are assured that he will be there in spirit. “The audience is sure to leave the Byrdcliffe Barn feeling empowered, educated, rocked and maybe a bit sweaty,� promises the official press release. The Fugs perform at 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 17 at the Byrdcliffe Barn, located at 485 Upper Byrdcliffe Road in Woodstock. Tickets cost $30 general admission, $25 for Byrdcliffe members. To order, call (845) 679-2079 or visit www.woodstockguild.org/fugs.html. – Frances Marion Platt The Fugs in concert, Saturday, Aug. 17, 8 p.m., $30/$25, Byrdcliffe Barn, 485 Upper Byrdcliffe Rd., Woodstock, (845) 679-2079, www.woodstockguild.org/ fugs.html

TASTE Casks along the Crag A visit to Coppersea Farm’s Springtown Tavern in New Paltz

D

id you ever peer down from atop Bonticou Crag in the Shawangunks – one of the mid-Hudson’s grandest outings [https://hudsonvalleyone. com/2017/06/01/the-bounties-of-bonticou] – and wonder what lucky persons get to live near the bottom, with that view in their back yard? Or bicycle past the Crag’s foot along the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail and envy the local farmers? Such ponderings can be satisfied and washed down with a shot of exquisite locally made whisky at Coppersea Farm, located at 239 Springtown Road on New Paltz’s northern frontier. Open to visitors, it’s home to the “grain-to-glassâ€? operations of Coppersea Distilling. And yes, Bonticou Crag is directly in this farm’s back yard. On the rare “field daysâ€? when chief distiller Christopher Williams mows and marks a trail for the agricurious to inspect the 75-acre “grainshedâ€? where he raises Danko rye in the winter and regional “landraceâ€? corn in the summer, you can get up close enough to experience a visceral understanding of why one of Coppersea’s products is named Bonticou Crag Straight Single Malt Rye. Even from the environs of the roadside tasting room, the Springtown Tavern, it’s an imposing backdrop. At the most recent Farm & Field Day, August 10, visitors ambled about playing lawn games like horseshoes and cornhole, or hopped up into Eric Hansen’s mobile Hudson Valley Hatchet trailer to try their hand at axethrowing. The more serious connoisseurs of spirits congregated at the bar to sample a flight of Coppersea’s offerings. Choosing a favorite isn’t easy; they’re all complex and delicious in very different ways. Those who want to know more about the creative process here are free to peer into the cool, dimly lit interiors of the barns where grain is raked over a wooden platform for malting, fermented in vats and distilled in traditional direct-fired alembic copper pot stills. The heady scent of fermentation hangs in the quiet air, and you realize that you’re seeing the way how whisky was made in the days before the Industrial Revolution: from locally sourced ingredients, in small batches, by ,    

 



Malting is an art in and of itself. The grain has to be moist enough to initiate germination, but not so moist as to saturate the endosperms. Temperature, ventilation and timing must also be precisely balanced.

new four-year-old Excelsior Bottled-inBond Bourbon, are made exclusively from New York State-sourced ingredients, right down to the Adirondacks-grown white oak casks in which they are aged. Coppersea Distilling whiskies are available from many local liquor stores, bars and restaurants, and can also be ordered online at http://coppersea.com. To sample them at the source – not to mention purchase a bottle, or some pork cuts from the Gloucestershire Old Spot heritage-breed pigs that are raised on the farm and fattened on stillage mash – you can visit the Springtown Tavern from noon to 7 p.m. Fridays through Sundays. By calling (845) 444-1044, you can make an appointment to visit between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and maybe even arrange for a guided tour. hands-on labor, with no mechanical or chemical shortcuts. Lovingly. Williams and his colleagues at Coppersea are fervent believers in what he calls “heritage methods� of distillation, designed to imbue their spirits with the mysterious essential oils that give them distinctive flavors, redolent of a particular terroir. He points out that such subtle flavor notes are sacrificed by industrial distillery operations that focus on maximizing yield by minimizing fermentation and distillation time. Two of Coppersea’s products, Big Angus Green Malt and Green Malt Rye, even utilize the extremely rare “green malting� method, in which the sprouting grain is ground while still wet rather than dried out in a kiln first. Their bright, grassy, briny,

herbaceous flavor profiles will surprise and delight you. Two other products, Excelsior Straight Bourbon and the brand-

N

o sooner than the smoke clears from the Ulster County Fairgrounds after the fair, the smoke returns, this time emanating from the 15th annual Hudson Valley Ribfest, which takes its position along the north-flowing Wallkill on the weekend of August 16 through 18. Hailed as the biggest and best backyard barbecue in the Hudson Valley, the weekend features food and merchandise vendors, live music, cooking demonstrations, a children’s area and barbecue contests. It costs $7 at the gate or online (but $5 on Friday), with children under 12 admitted free. Parking and same-day reentry are included. Pricier VIP experiences are available as well, for $60 on Friday, $70 on the long Saturday. Check out the site to learn what Very Important gets you (hint: lots of ribs and sides). The hours are from 5 to 10 p.m. on Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Coppersea will donate five percent of bottle sales that day to WVLT. While participants will be encouraged to arrive by bike via the rail trail, automobile parking is also available on-site. Save the date now, and check out www. wallkillvalleylt.org later on for updates regarding admission and ticketing. “Coppersea could not align better with us – in terms of mission and representing the importance of conserving open space, rail trails and farms,” says WVLT president Beth Bengtson. “The portion of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail where Coppersea is located is one the most scenic along the trail, and a favorite among our rail trail users,” agrees WVLT executive director Christie DeBoer. “From a mission perspective, partnering with a business that ‘walks the talk’ in regard to open space and farm preservation makes the event even more significant.” For Coppersea’s part, “We are huge advocates of the Trust and the trail,” says Williams. “It’s a very symbiotic relationship.” – Frances Marion Platt Coppersea Farm 239 Springtown Rd., New Paltz http://coppersea.com

Bradley Farm hosts Ferragosto Pasta Festival on Thursday, Fish Luncheon on Sunday Europeans take their vacation time seriously, and many major cities empty out during the month of August, with businesses simply closing up shop so that their employees can spend a few weeks in the country or at the seaside. In Italy the tradition is called Ferragosto, dating back at least to 18 BCE, when Caesar Augustus of-

ficially established the Feriae Augusti. But the holiday period’s roots were far more ancient. For time out of mind, the month we now know as August had begun with one of the Cross-Quarter Days of the Pagan year: the harvest festival called Lammas or, in Celtic countries, Lughnasadh, marking the midpoint between the Summer Solstice and the Autumnal Equinox. The ancient Romans in Augustus’ time already celebrated two major harvest festivals, the Vinalia Rustica and the Consualia, following a period of intense agricultural work during the hottest time of the summer. Wanting to ensure that peasants got a fortnight off to recuperate, the emperor linked the feast days all together under the heading of Feriae Augusti, decreeing it a time to hold horse races in honor of his victory over Marc Antony in the Battle of Actium. The latter tradition still survives in the form of the famous Palio dell’Assunta race, held on August 16 each year around the central Piazza in the city of Siena. Beasts of burden as well as farm laborers got time off, and across Italy, horses, mules and donkeys were decorated with flowers to celebrate the festival. (So now you know why you see those little plaster donkeys bedecked in wreaths in Italian-American families’ yards.) When Christianity came along and established August 15 as the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, the holiday period began to take on trappings of religious ritual that persist to this day. Italians with time off work are still expected to attend Mass on this “holyday of obligation,” so they make it festive with processions, in which a statue of the Blessed Virgin is typically decorated with garlands and carried through the streets, with priests chanting and waving censers. In the 20th century, more sinister associations were attached to Ferragosto by a would-be modern-day Caesar, Benito Mussolini. He founded summer youth camps in Gaeta, Tuscany and Anzio, called colonia estiva, that combined recreation with Fascist indoctrination. And in an appeal to populist support perhaps inspired by Augustus himself,

he drastically lowered the prices on train tickets for three days in mid-August to enable less affluent Italian city-dwellers to visit the camps or simply take a rural getaway. The popularity of the concept of a long summer holiday far outlived that of the dictator himself, and today it’s taken as a given that this is a time for festive family gatherings in the countryside. So, what are you doing for Ferragosto, in a country where it isn’t mandatory for employers to offer workers even minimal paid vacation time? Fabulous rustic Italian cooking provides an excuse for a gathering, even if it only lasts for one evening. Last year Bradley Farm, located at 317 Springtown Road in New Paltz, began hosting its own annual Ferragosto Pasta Festival, and its second iteration arrives on Thursday, August 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. The founder of Gustiamo, the celebrated Bronx-based importer of authentic foods from Italy, is a longtime friend of Ray Bradley’s, and she’ll be on hand to whip up a fantastic holiday feast using produce grown right on the farm. For $32, attendees will be able to indulge in a passed canapé, three pastas – casarecce with pesto genovese, busiate al pesto trapanese and spaghetti with bottarga – a mixed green salad and crusty bread. Kids can get pasta with butter for $6. Dessert – stone fruit with honey and lemon and bread with pistachio spread or hazelnut/chocolate – costs $7. Live Italian music will be performed by New Paltz’s own Leonissa Ardinzonne. To order tickets, visit https://bit.ly/2N0a9g9. Can’t make it for Ferragosto? Poissonnier John Vargo, famed around New Paltz as longtime executive chef at Gadaleto’s Seafood, and currently chef/

ambassador for Hudson Valley Seafood, will preside over a Fish Luncheon and Pop-Up Shop from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, August 18 at Bradley Farm. Menu options will include a Catsmo smoked salmon Reuben with half-sour pickles and fresh sauerkraut, a veggieburger (from the fields) Reuben with half-sour pickles and fresh sauerkraut and a fried oyster po’ boy on a crusty Bread Alone roll with fennel remoulade and farm slaw. Sides for all are potato pancakes served with herb sour cream. The price for the luncheon is $24. Plenty of other culinary events are coming up at Bradley Farm over the next couple of months. From noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, August 25, you can Build a BLT with Ray’s homegrown heirloom tomatoes and farm-raised nitrate-free bacon for $18. Chef Saul Bolton will preside over a five-course Sit-Down Dinner beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 15. And the first-ever traditional Rosh Hashanah Dinner at the Farm will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 29.

Sons of Apollo

L

ooking through my files, I just came upon a ton of little-known information about the Apollo program. It was for a book that a major publisher gave me a nice advance to write, in time for the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11. I finished it, the editor loved it, then he promptly suffered a horrible commuter train accident that left him disabled. The new editor decided they didn’t need to publish an Apollo book, paid me my second half advance, and my agent and I watched my effort go nowhere after the manuscript was picked up by a tiny Connecticut house. It probably sold 400 copies, I don’t know. It sounds like I’m whining. I hate to whine. Why it has come up is that the research I did – about odd astronaut adventures – left a lingering weird feeling about NASA and the space program. In particular, I recall the evening Buzz Aldrin phoned after he’d heard about my project. We chatted for nearly an hour – and I was once again amazed at how different things were “on the inside,” as opposed to the official NASA releases given to the public. Well, I’m not going to spill the beans about all the dirt I learned; but here’s a potpourri, a sample of stuff about the astronauts. It seems topical, now that the world has completed Apollo anniversary celebrations. Eight of the 12 men who walked on the Moon are now dead. One died of a heart attack, one of leukemia and one in a motorcycle accident when his Harley failed to negotiate a turn on a California road. One of the astronauts had a religious conversion on the Moon and promptly became a born-again preacher; he suffered a serious injury when a dislodged boulder hit him while he was climbing Mt. Ararat looking for signs of Noah’s ark. Another also became deeply religious, but it didn’t strike him until a couple of years later. One left NASA to find himself in deep depression and alcoholism, and checked himself into a mental hospital. Several parlayed their names and can-do personalities into considerable wealth in the business world. One quit NASA to devote himself to being a professional artist. One embarked on a full-time pursuit of New-Age type stuff like ESP, and founded an institute dedicated to exploring the hidden side of the mind, even supporting notorious spoon-bender Uri Geller. One became a semi-recluse and hid from the media. One remained in NASA to participate actively in further space programs. For all this eventual divergence in their lives, the men had remarkable similarities. The initial pool of 29 astronauts – those of the first three groups chosen, who supplied the overwhelming majority of those names later plastered in newspaper headlines during the three incremental manned programs that put people on the Moon – were analyzed by NASA-Langley director Edgar Cortright, who gathered some interesting statistics about this select group. Bottom line: They indeed shared striking commonalities. Nearly half the men came from just the four states of Texas, Ohio, Illinois and New Jersey. The astronauts tended to be more formally religious than the average US citizen, with 23 Protestants and six Catholics; many were very active in their churches. None of the men was anything but Christian and none described himself as atheist or agnostic at the time. Only a few spent much time with cerebral pastimes such as chess or reading classical

As for the “first-born son has a higher chance for success” notion, the Apollo astronauts would seem to support such a thesis strongly, since 27 of the 29 were eldest sons.

What changed?

literature. Most liked sports cars. Nineteen had brown hair, one black, two red and seven were blond. Six were seriously balding. By a ratio of 2 ½-to-one, the men had light-colored eyes. The number of blue or green eyes compared to brown was 21 versus eight. There were no blacks, Hispanics or Asians in the group, and no women. Seven of the 29 were left-handed, which is double the number that would be expected by chance. As for the “first-born son has a higher chance for success” notion, the Apollo astronauts would seem to support such a thesis strongly, since 27 of the 29 were eldest sons. Not so well known is that, in the mid-’60s, the astronaut program pretty much fell under the influence of the Navy, meaning that the people like Deke Slayton who handed out assignments gave preference to members of their own club, namely ex-carrier pilots. Buzz Aldrin is still privately very bitter about this. He told me that, having a doctorate from MIT, “They distrusted eggheads. They were keeping it in the Navy. All you have to do is look and count.” Despite his ultra-high qualifications, he didn’t even get an assignment aboard any Gemini flight – which meant that, as a space rookie, he certainly wouldn’t have flown an early Apollo mission, let alone been on that first team to walk the Moon. What changed? There were a sudden pair of last-minute deaths when astronauts crashed a jet they were piloting; this moved Aldrin up in rotation to fill the gap. Then, it turns out, they offered that first Moon flight not to Aldrin and Armstrong, but to Frank Borman and his crew. But Borman turned it down, reportedly because his wife was terrified of the danger involved. It took all these twists for Aldrin to be on Apollo 11. Ah, the hand of Destiny. “Sometimes the die turns and it comes up seven or 11,” Aldrin sighed on the phone. – Bob Berman Want to know more?

ART Calvin Grimm invites you in New gallery in Shady opens this weekend

A

bstract Expressionist Calvin Grimm is inviting art-lovers to a Grand Opening/Gallery Exhibition of his work (as well as some pieces he owns by other Woodstock artists) from 1 to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, August 17 and 18 (and each weekend through Labor Day) at his new studio at 14 Lion’s Way in Shady, on the left side of Hutchin Hill Road. This 74-year-old painter, who still lives in the house he built 50 years ago with his own hands (one of the Woodstock Handmade Houses highlighted in the book of that name), has made an investment in himself and the art he produces. It’s a new studio, again built 90 percent of the way by himself, with pristine white walls, Grimm-designed storage racks and work table: a sanctuary for paintings that can be five-feet-by-six-feet or tiny canvases, all engorged with color and shape, evoking emotions that run all directions from ecstasy to apocalypse. The new studio sits some 25 to 30 feet from his front steps in the wooded Shady setting, just down a bluestone pathway that he built, nestled next to a small pond. “The last two years have been fullsteam-ahead building,” he says. “It takes considerable focus to prioritize everything to one thing like that...I have in the last two years been making paintings when I could, so there is work that is more current here. Probably between the studio and the outside grounds and my home, there could be 30 works displayed, and there are flat files of works on paper and these other paintings in storage that are now easily accessible. One of the pieces in my house is from college, in 1964.” “If I had a message for the community or those people that are coming to experience any particular part of Woodstock – the music or the environs – it’s that the whole

Clytie Alexander, Raoul Hague shows open on Sunday at ‘T’ Space ‘T’ Space Gallery in Rhinebeck presents the work of two abstract artists in dialogue. The exhibit features works by the Kansas-born, Montreal-raised painter Clytie Alexander and the late, well-known Woodstock sculptor and native of Constantinople, Raoul Hague. Via variations in a sequence, Alexander creates both motion and stillness in her paintings. She uses light and color to draw viewers’ attention to the surrounding space of the gallery as much as to the paintings themselves. Hague’s wood sculptures are filled with spatial intensity. They profoundly shift their identity with changes in the viewer’s vantage point. His finished sculptures often resemble the tree trunks they once were. There will be an opening reception on Sunday, August 18. The exhibit remains on view until October 27. Clytie Alexander/Raoul Hague exhibition opening Sunday, Aug. 18, 3-6 p.m. ‘T’ Space Rhinebeck

Meek evokes a chilling misogynist dystopia at Denizen Theatre On a stark, sparsely furnished stage rendered otherworldly by smoky lighting effects, a young woman facedown at a table regains consciousness and takes in her surroundings. She jumps up and begins searching frantically for listening devices, shouting blasphemies at the ceiling to see if her words will evoke any response from her captors. So begins Meek, a drama by the up-and-coming young English playwright Penelope Skinner (Fucked, Eigengrau, The Village Bike, Linda) that was first performed at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and had its US premiere last weekend at the Denizen Theatre, New Paltz’s black-box venue in the Water Street Market. The Seattle Public Theater’s Kelly Kitchens directs this production, which runs Wednesdays through Sundays until September 1. It’s quite a coup for Denizen to get to introduce this terrifyingly timely play to

JAMIE SANIN’S CELEBRATE WOMXN 845 ASSAILS GENDER BARRIERS IN THE ARTS

W

hen Jamie Sanin first came across hard statistics on women in the arts, she was shocked. Women, the 27-year-old New Paltz-based visual artist read, compose close to half of the working visual artists in America, but earn, on average, $20,000 less a year than their male counterparts. According to a survey by the Public Library of Science, women comprised, out of 10,000 artists in 18 top art museums, a mere 13 percent. Representation in American art galleries is hardly better, composing, on average, 30 percent of total commercial representations. Of 2017’s 20 most popular exhibitions worldwide, a grand total of one was headlined by a woman. (Statistics are from here: https://nmwa.org/ advocate/get-facts.) “The more I was in tune with those statistics,� says Sanin, “I realized how much they rang true.� Her own work focuses on “bodies and personalities� who are generally excluded from representation in fine art, but she turned that gaze on the world around her. She noticed that, in her own life, her male peers were both more likely to exhibit, as well as more likely to take up opportunities for exhibitions. She related to the numbers on a personal level: “I had to work, I had to pay my bills.� And so she decided to do something about it. Sanin held her first “Celebration� art show, open only to women and women-identifying artists, at Beacon’s Catalyst Gallery in January 2018. This fulfilled a desire of Sanin’s: “I participate in a lot of art shows, so I wanted to try my hand at curating.� But this personal project was a success, pairing more than two dozen visual and performance artists with semiweekly performances, poetry readings, even a special tarot class, and achieving significant turnout: “I very much underestimated my own network in terms of turnout,� says Sanin, “as well as the need.� By providing a space for women and women-identifying artists that focused on their needs and goals rather than a specific theme, she had touched a nerve in the local artistic community. This success left people asking: What’s next? Her answer was with Celebrate Womxn 845, a one-woman organization dedicated to the promotion of all artists, whether woman-identifying, femme or non-binary, who are underrepresented in the region’s gallery spaces and performing spaces. She describes the organization’s mission as being “to organize, recognize and celebrate. ‘Organize’ is to create the space; ‘recognize’ is recognizing those statistics and who’s out here attending, who’s out here creating; and then ‘celebrating,’ to enjoy it and make the most of it and celebrate one another.� Though only a little over a year old, Celebrate has already held two Womxnfests, headlined by local bands like Guilt Mountain and Tiny Blue Ghost, and is planning to make its open mic at Snug’s in New Paltz into a monthly event. Sanin has also turned her big “Celebration� show into an annual event, exhibiting artists like Kat Farrell at New Paltz’s Roost Gallery alongside performers, dancers and more. “Through my interdisciplinary arts experiences, I’ve found that there are these parameters that end up excluding people,� she says, “and I don’t think it’s beneficial to keep those artists apart.� To this end, she has begun to book a wider variety of events, from a dance party with female deejays to a September 24 slam poetry reading from Olivia Gatwood at Kingston’s BSP space, bringing a sort of artist to the Hudson Valley who might otherwise end up overlooked. Sanin says that the response from other artists has been very positive. “It’s a ripe time,� she says. “Women’s issues are at the forefront.� – Rob Rubsam

American audiences. Meek takes place in a dystopia in which a misogynist Christian theocracy monitors and controls the actions of its citizens. If this sounds a lot like Gilead, the world of Margaret Atwood’s groundbreaking 1985 novel The Handmaid’s Tale and its current hit Hulu TV series, you’re right. One significant difference between the two societies is that Meek depicts its resistance movement as empowered by social media. The imprisoned and disappeared here rely on sustaining the interest of random strangers via the uncontrollable Internet to save them from the whims of the state. As in the gladiator pits of ancient

Rome, getting enough electronic “likes� to outweigh the thumbs-down can be a matter of life and death. Brittany Proia, one of the triumvirate of artistic directors at Denizen, stars as Irene, the protagonist who has been jailed for a song that she wrote and performed in a nightclub. She’s baffled, because it was a straightforward heartbreak ballad about being dumped by her lover, not an anthem of political protest or satire. Much of the first third of the play, when it isn’t worldbuilding, focuses on Irene’s efforts to ascertain exactly why she has been targeted. That worldbuilding, incidentally, is one of the playwright’s strongest suits,

plying terse and economical language to paint a vivid picture of the society that thrives outside Irene’s cell. Irene has two regular visitors: Anna, her best friend since childhood, played by Aidan Koehler, and Gudrun, her attorney, played by Crystal Tweed. These three women are the only characters we ever see onstage, although a fourth, Anna’s husband in a loveless arranged marriage, becomes a looming presence. Having thoroughly embraced at least the outward demonstrations of piety required by the religious regime, Anna is timid where Irene is bold, and feels that she can do little for her friend without her husband’s sanction. She sees her role as trying to save Irene by counseling cooperation with her captors. Cool, competent Gudrun, by contrast, is secretly a Secularist, with a subversive agenda that may transcend her concern for her client’s welfare. Not being entirely sure about the nature of this professional dynamic during Gudrun and Irene’s interactions is one of the keener pleasures of Meek’s developing narrative. The middle section of the play is by far its strongest, the dialogue evoking many classic works of page and stage that preceded it. Besides the obvious Handmaid’s Tale parallels, Anna’s fear of being overheard wherever she goes conjures up the Thought Police of Orwell’s 1984, while the vagueness of the charges against Irene is decidedly Kafkaesque. There’s an extended philosophical discussion of the pros and cons of selfsacrifice for a cause that could have been lifted right out of Shaw’s Saint Joan. And the tension between self-righteous Anna and her offstage husband, though delivered secondhand, may remind you of the many layers of ulterior motives at play in Elizabeth Proctor’s moral challenge to her husband John in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. The final section of Meek is less satisfying, largely because two major plot twists are too heavily foreshadowed to come as the surprises they seem intended to be, letting considerable air out of the tires of a vehicle that had previously maintained solid momentum. And, at the preview performance, the histrionics of a long, significant soliloquy – happening

far too close to the end to divulge which character (and therefore which actor) delivered it without being spoilery – simply failed to convince. Still, the positives outweigh the negatives in this production of Meek. It’s certainly thought-provoking, and the specter it raises of a rigidly patriarchal fundamentalist society lurking on the horizon will unsettle anyone who follows current political events. – Frances Marion Platt Meek by Penelope Skinner Wednesday-Saturday 8 p.m./Sunday 2 p.m., $28/$24/$15/$5 Denizen Theatre Water Street Market, New Paltz (845) 303-4136 www.denizentheatre.com

Charlotte Mandell's translations of Jonathan Littell, Claude Arnaud and especially Mathias Enard have received acclaim and awards from major literary committees like the Man Booker Prize, and she is a regular translator for works from renowned indie presses like New Directions and New York Review Books Classics.

The English channeler Red Hook’s Charlotte Mandell translates modern French classics

W

hen she was a child, Charlotte Mandell used to spend every other summer in the Swiss Alps. Near the border with France, the region was entirely French-speaking, and she had to learn quickly to keep up: “It helped a lot, being able to go there and hear it spoken.” So much so that by the time she had turned 15, the Bostonraised Mandell could comfortably read and speak the foreign language. Perhaps this ought not to surprise us. An award-winning French translator, the 51-year-old Red Hook resident has been crucial in bringing contemporary French literature to an English-language audience. Her versions of Jonathan Littell, Claude Arnaud and especially Mathias Enard have received acclaim and awards from major literary committees like the Man Booker Prize, and she is a regular translator for works from renowned indie presses like New Directions and New York Review Books Classics. Mandell attended the Boston Latin School, focusing on languages. She took two years of Ancient Greek and six of Latin, which she considers foundational to her later work in French. It was during an AP Latin class that Mandell had her first serious taste of translation, when the class rendered all of Virgil’s Aeneid into English. Mandell’s career began after she graduated from Bard College, with a book of literary essays by Maurice Blanchot;

further Blanchot translations eventually earned a prize from the Modern Language Association. The intervening years have seen renditions of Flaubert, Balzac and Proust, and she has become the sole English translator of Prix Goncourt winner Mathias Enard, arguably the most provocative and interesting writer (apologies to Houellebecq) in modern French literature. As Mandell has grown in acclaim, she increasingly translates works with which she is unfamiliar. This is how she prefers to work: “I’ll never read the book beforehand,” she says. “That’s one of my only rules.” Mandell will read and translate near-simultaneously, a sentence-bysentence project that can move at a snail’s pace – about ten draft manuscript pages per day – but that she finds exhilarating. “It feels much more alive to me that way,” she explains. “I’m more involved in it creatively, like I’m helping to write the book as I go along.” Her first goal is to find the book’s original “voice,” nebulous as it might be, and then render it as if the author had written in English. Take Zone, Enard’s mammoth, 500-plus page run-on sentence that encompasses seemingly all of European atrocity past, present and future. Zone is set during the span of a single train ride, giving the novel a rhythmic, mechanical pace more fitted to the possibilities of the original French. Once Mandell clued into this quality, she says, the act of translating became “much

more fluent” – so much so that she had to force herself to stop writing at the end of the day: “I was completely immersed in the journey.” This results in a conversation between author and translator that Mandell likens to living within whatever novel she is currently working on. “You find the spirit of the book.” While often intoxicating, certain works have proven less pleasant to inhabit. Jonathan L i t t e l l ’s The Kindly Ones, for which Mandell won an award from the French Embassy, is a thousand-page Holocaust novel narrated by a Nazi official with “a very specific, cold, unfeeling, unsentimental voice.” So enveloped was she in the character that Mandell began to have nightmares about him, even as him. The intensity of this act of recreation easily becomes exhausting – so much so that she rarely translates for more than a few hours at a stretch. “It’s like being a medium,” she says. “You’re channeling something and you’re taken over by it, completely immersed in it.” As intensely as Mandell identifies with her work, however, she does not want

readers to spot her in it. She relates a remark from Nicholas de Lange, who worked with the late Amos Oz, that a translator is like a good butler, “always there and appearing when you need things, but whom you never actually notice.” She would rather that the book appear as if it had been written in English to begin with, without the imposition of an external style. “I want the book to speak for itself,” she says. Even if “a good translator,” in her words, “should d i s a p p e a r,” Mandell wants readers to understand just how much work is involved in her profession. She researches references, follows-up on footnotes and occasionally asks authors for clarification. “I think that translators are really the best scholars of a text that they translate,” she says. “They have to know everything about whatever they are translating. It should read fluently, like it was the easiest thing in the world to do; but there’s a lot of work that goes into it.” Not that Mandell herself has receded from the picture. She excels at rendering obscure, dense authors like Enard and

Even if “a good translator,” in her words, “should disappear,” Mandell wants readers to understand just how much work is involved in her profession.

The next several years will see publication of works by Breton, Jean Genet, Paul Valéry and a “a huge Balzacian book” by Enard unlike anything the author has yet written. And in her downtime? “I translate Proust,” she says through a laugh. “I just do more translations.” – Rob Rubsam

Anger in the Classroom Glenn Nystrup reads from his new book in New Paltz He grew up in Connecticut, but not the Connecticut most of us recognize. He remembers picking tobacco in the hot sun, working a long eight hours and winding up with eight dollars to show for it at day’s end. Glenn Nystrup’s journey from the small town where he grew up to the house he built and lives in on the edge of the Village

of New Paltz is rife with unexpected twists and turns like that. He may be the ultimate do-it-yourself guy: someone whose curiosity about life has sent him climbing the Shawangunks, becoming an accomplished sculptor and – above all – a teacher. Nystrup came to teaching in a roundabout way. He got his start without benefit of a teaching degree, pursuing an undergrad’s math degree because he hated writing. That same deeply experienced teacher has long since overcome his aversion to writing. He’s now an author. Of a book about teaching. And teachers. And anger. Nystrup launched his post-collegiate teaching career at the height of the post’60s “back to the land” movement, moving from the rural Connecticut of his youth to the super-rural regions of northern New York State, up near the Canadian border. For nearly ten years, he experienced the sort of hands-on learning you read about today in the Foxfire book series: He built his own home, lived without benefit of electricity, made his own clothing and struggled to live communally. During those years, he recognized how the communal experience provided the sort of learning opportunities he relishes to this day. Chief among those experiences was the creation of an elementary school. It proved to be a turning point. Nystrup helped establish the new

community’s elementary school, helping to construct the building as well as the program. It was a joyous time for him that confirmed his desire to teach. “We ran the school for eight years, and when the students graduated, we used all the money for scholarships – we gave it all away. It was a great experiment.” The beginning of the ’80s brought him to New Paltz and a job working with emotionally disturbed children. He fell in love with New Paltz and has lived there ever since. After earning his Master’s degree and certification in Special Ed from SUNYNew Paltz, he taught for several more years before launching his own business, where he provided individualized tutoring for 12 years. The recession of 2008 saw him administer and teach at several private schools in the region. Looking back on his teaching career, Nystrup still sounds slightly aghast in recounting his most recent career move. “I really disliked writing and avoided it through college.” But as a teacher – particularly someone charged with teaching damaged students – Nystrup found himself overcoming those feelings. He felt drawn to write stories privately about the people in his teaching life that he thought might be interesting to other people someday. He said that he discovered a theme to those writings: the importance of

perception, how people see things and, more importantly, how people can see things differently. So, one day about ten years ago, he started posting essays at a now-defunct online writing site called Open Salon. He found encouragement there, and with it, the spark for his book, Anger in the Classroom: Finding Freedom

from Anger. Nystrup said that he has always felt that the education system has been in dire need of change. Teacher-training texts, especially in Special Education courses, have been a particular frustration for him. “All the textbooks indicate that teachers should be able to observe themselves, to know their biases, to know how their voice affects others, to know things about themselves – but they didn’t explain how.” This explains the aim of his book, he said. “I wanted to produce something that could be a bridge, a supplement to the traditional textbooks.” He said that he wrote the book in the spirit of having fun, of allowing the reader to “reconnect to the joy of teaching, which is what brings most of us to it.” But a book about anger? Where’s the fun in that? The fun, as it were, lies in the effort to

understand anger – not in an abstract sense, but as it affects the teacher him or herself. Managing student anger is given plenty of attention in the standard texts, but far less attention is given to a teacher’s efforts to understand it in himself. It’s not a question of anger being “out there,” but “in here.” Nystrup has constructed the book as a series of case stories and exercises: dramatic vignettes from a variety of perspectives that he hopes will inspire not only recognition, but also further personal investigation. Ultimately, he hopes that the book will act as a call to action, a book that invites the reader – be she teacher, administrator or even parent – to view the role of anger, in all its various forms, as an instrument for change as well as an opportunity for self-reflection and, hopefully, understanding.

Though the book has just been published, it has already won praise from some impressive readers. Temple Grandin, the renowned author who was one of the first people to write about autism from her personal experience, has said that the book “will help teachers figure out the causes of anger and how to prevent it.” Alhassan Susso, 2019 New York State Teacher of the Year, said that the book “empowers teachers with the strategies to create a culture of respect, empathy and understanding in the class.” Nystrup will discuss and read from the book at Inquiring Minds in New Paltz on Thursday, August 22 at 7 p.m. – Jeremiah Horrigan Anger in the Classroom book talk, Glenn Nystrup, Thursday, Aug. 22, 7 p.m., free, Inquiring Minds Bookstore, 6 Church St., New Paltz; (845) 255-8300, www. inquiringbooks.com.

Exhibited in Hurley Motor Sports 2779 Route 209, through September, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8am to 5pm. The show is free and open to the public.
