1. Rhinebeck Arts Festival, Oct. 2-4 One of the hallmarks of a great crafts fair â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a type of attraction in which the Hudson Valley excels â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is the way that the lines between artisanship and art become increasingly blurred. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something deeply satisfying about decorating our surroundings sparely with utilitarian objects of subtle beauty, rather than filling them with heavily advertised, mass-produced musthaves-of-the-month. The Rhinebeck Arts Festival, which returns to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds this weekend, dispenses with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x153;craftsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x153; descriptor in its title altogether; but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to find the perfect accessory, home furnishing or holiday gift there thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s within your budget. Some 200 independent artists and craftspeople will be displaying their wares, and along with the paintings, drawings, prints and photography, there will also be works in wood, clay, glass, metal, fiber, leather, mixed media, jewelry and furniture. And if nothing else grabs you, you can always treat yourself to some handmade, smallbatch gourmet consumables.

There will be live R&B music both Saturday and Sunday from the Lindsey Webster Band, craft demonstrations, alcoholic beverage tastings for the grownups and hands-on craft activities for the whole family courtesy of FiberFlame Studio. The Festival will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, October 2 and Sunday, October 4 and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 3. The entry fee is $10 general admission, $9 for seniors, $4 for children aged 6 to 16; kids under age 6 get in free. Parking is plentiful and free. The Dutchess County Fairgrounds are located at 6550 Spring Brook Avenue (Route 9) in Rhinebeck. For more info call (845) 331-7900 or visit www.artrider.com, where you can also get a $1 admission discount by signing up for the e-mail list. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Frances Marion Platt

O

n 2011â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Songs for the New, Steve Koesterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remoteCatskills folk/rock group Two Dark Birds released a heck of a nice collection of expanded-palette chamber folk and earthy rock with a dash of weirdness, reminding us that the Band â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that most towering peak of Catskills rock â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were often a lot closer to the spirit of Aaron Coplandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Americana than to Pete Seegerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. If you think that the Band abided the â&#x20AC;&#x153;anyone with a beating heart can do thisâ&#x20AC;? principle of folk populism, try learning the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jawboneâ&#x20AC;? sometime. It will set your beating heart to arrhythmia. Two Dark Birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;progressive Americana,â&#x20AC;? for lack of a better genre descriptor, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really progressive in its methods and myths; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tax the old forms and tropes of folk and roots so much as widen their purview geographically and chronologically â&#x20AC;&#x201C; allowing, say, Appalachia and New Orleans to speak freely of their common suffering and their unique ways of singing and dancing about it. In a way, the unspoken idea of this suddenly hopping genre of chamber folk is to desegregate two parallel American

The old folkies and dirt-floorstompers washed behind their ears and went to church on Sundays, too, where they might have sung in the choir and exposed themselves to the neurologically transformative agency of European counterpoint, and to a lot of dark reverb and ghosts. They might also have played baritone or tuba in a marching band, and absorbed some ideas about crude territorial arrangement and the brass farts of war from the essentially American

Take note Helena Baillie & Babette Hierholzer open 37 annual Rhinebeck Chamber Music Series at acoustically superb Church of the Messiah th

T

he first time that Helena Baillie and Babette Hierholzer performed together, they were in prison – not as inmates, though. It was a performance under the auspices of the Bard Prison Initiative. Although Hierholzer, the seven-time Steinway Piano Award-winning pianist had only a battered upright piano to play on, she insists that it was a gratifying event, and the two musicians are hoping for other such performances in the future. “We were touched by the thoughtful and interested questions,” Hierholzer says. Hierholzer and Baillie, who plays violin and viola and is an artist fellow at Bard College, got along so well that they decided to give future performances together. They played a trio concert with celebrity flutist Eugenia Zukerman in Kingston, then performed as a duo in Tannersville. On October 4, they will open the 2015/16 Rhinebeck Chamber Music Series (RCMS). Hierholzer, who is the new music director of the 37-year-old organization, says that she would not have selected herself to open a season, but that plan was made a year before she took over the directorship. The series used to offer preconcert talks by the musicians, but Hierholzer and other members of the board realized that, while audiences were interested in what the musicians had to say, they didn’t want to arrive earlier to hear it. So the concerts will now start at the earlier hour of 3 p.m., and the performers are invited to speak about the music just before and during the concert. Sunday’s performance includes works for both violin and viola, a diverse program of classical and contemporary works. Schnittke’s Suite in Old Style blends the two: recent music written in a 20th-century idea of Baroque style. Arvo Pärt’s Fratres, by a composer whose 80th birthday was just celebrated in Berlin, is contemporary music influenced by Gregorian chant. Listeners may recognize it without knowing why; this piece has been used in the soundtracks of many movies and imitated in many others. The biggest work on the program is Beethoven’s famous “Kreutzer” Sonata (named for its dedication to a violinist who never played it), and the concert also includes works of Prokofiev and Paganini. Having discovered that the RCMS offered a concert by women composers in 1986, Hierholzer is now planning to use last year’s all-women program as part of

an ongoing series. “It will be part of the organization’s history,” she says. The series continues on November 22 with Brooklyn Rider, a string quartet called “the future of chamber music” by Strings Magazine. Fifteen hundred people heard three-quarters of this ensemble at the Ulster Performing Arts Center when they were the “friends” of Yo-Yo Ma and Friends. Other concerts in the season include soprano Christine Price and mezzo-soprano Avery Amereau (January 17), the Weiss Kaplan Stumpf Trio (March 13) and the Alexander String Quartet (April 10). – Leslie Gerber Helena Baillie/Babette Hierholzer, Rhinebeck Chamber Music Society, Sunday, October 4, 3 p.m., $25 for adults/$5 for students under 23 with ID, Church of the Messiah, 6436 Montgomery Street, Rhinebeck; (845) 876-2870, www.rhinebeckmusic.org.

songs in elegant, wildly diverse and imaginative settings, a portion of which could be described as masterful Baroque Americana. I don’t have to strain my brain to hear the magic that Koester and Maxwell might make together; why, I can hear it right now. Maxwell and Koester will step into a church to make some magic together, each with his own band, on Saturday, October 3 at the Old Glenford Church. This is an exciting new venue located on the same property upon which the now-legendary Hudson Valley Sudbury School benefit shows have been going down on the last Friday of each month for years. For this show, Two Dark Birds will perform in their “Mountain Quintet” lineup, featuring Koester on guitar and vocals, Jason Mills on percussion, Carrie Bradley (the Breeders) on violin, Sibel Finn (Fab Faux) on cello and Josh Roy Brown (the Trapps) on lap steel. Maxwell performs with his current trio, featuring Dan Hickey (They Might Be Giants) on drums and Jesse Murphy (Brazilian Girls) on bass. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission costs $10 at the door. All ages are welcome. Food and beverages will be provided by the incomparable Mor Pipman and Much Mor Bread. Adults may B their own B.

T

he super-prolific touring songwriter and NPR darling Howard Fishman registers on the category meter as an “American roots singer/songwriter” of a swingcentric stripe, but the real story is quite a bit more complicated than that. The words “retro” and “purist” tend to stick together; and if Fishman’s debut, 1999’s The Howard Fishman Quartet, were a life sentence, it would be easy enough to fix Fishman as a serious swing revivalist, originally more Django/Grappelli, ultimately more New Orleans backline and bayou. But maybe the title of 2002’s odd rock record I Do What I Want was Fishman’s not-so-gentle FU to puristry in general. A master of all conventions, he has never been exactly as reverent and convention-bound as the purists would have him. Fishman’s somewhat-wry retro persona and his old-tyme range of swing, blues, gospel and jazz reference are as easy and natural as can be, neither forced nor stylized: just the way he hears it as a writer and a singer, the Ground Zero of his style. They’re the result of aesthetic impulse and of intensive study. But his musical and musicological restlessness upsets all the carts eventually. He is at times quite a punk, for example; and when your survey of his career finally reaches the dark, Balkan-colored brooding of 2011’s No Further Instructions, your time and place coordinates have been scrambled beyond reconstruction. You now live in a place, and an age, called Fishman. Brassy, quiet, spiritual, swinging, touching and touched, Fishman’s latest Uncollected Stories feels like a bit of a return to his default settings – but that of course is an incomplete and misleading assessment, a false comfort, which is actually kind of the theme of the record. It’s a reflection on impermanence and our common doom, presented in a musical and lyrical voice of such worn-in and familiar comfort, you probably won’t even notice how dark and dread it can be – until some line or other zings you, like the last words of the gently swinging “Letter One”: “I’m yours, farewell.” Howard Fishman and his band (which features former New Paltz resident and frequent area performer Scott Barkan) return to the Falcon in Marlboro on Sunday, October 4 with James Hearne kicking the evening off at 7 p.m. Per usual, there is no cover charge at the Falcon, but generous donation is encouraged.

he groovy and wildly popular Americana outfit the Wood Brothers will pack the Bearsville Theater on Tuesday, October 6 at 8 p.m. While rock has always been a flavor in the Wood Brothers cocktail, right alongside folk, bluegrass and gospel, the band has recently announced the upcoming release of Paradise: a decidedly more rock-oriented effort recorded at Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach’s East Eye Sound Studios. Tickets cost $25 and are available at www.bearsvilletheater.com. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock.

Archie Fisher & Garnet Rogers play Railway Museum in Phoenicia

Kevin McKrell & Brian Melick play Unison in New Paltz this Friday

On Sunday, October 4, Flying Cat Music presents folk legends Archie Fisher and Garnet Rogers in concert at the Empire State Railway Museum in Phoenicia. This will be a special evening reuniting two old friends: Scottish songwriter, folksinger and guitarist Archie Fisher and Canadian songwriter, folksinger and instrumentalist Garnet Rogers, sharing the stage and featured billing. Both of these men are venerated folk legends. At the age of 18, Garnet Rogers was already on the road as a full-time working musician with his brother Stan. Together they formed what has come to be accepted as one of the most influential duos in the history of North American folk music. Garnet acted as producer and arranger for his older brother from 1973 to 1983, when Stan died tragically in a plane crash. Since then, Garnet has established himself as a formidable solo artist. Garnet Rogers was a featured mainstage artist at this year’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and has been hailed by the Boston Globe as “a brilliant songwriter. One of the major talents of our time” and as “a charismatic performer and singer.” Sing Out calls Garnet Rogers “the greatest interpreter and vocalist performing in the contemporary folk scene.” Archie Fisher is an original inductee into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame, the former host of a weekly Scottish BBC music show for 27 years and a recipient of the MBE, a prestigious honor nominated by his peers and bestowed by Queen Elizabeth. As a guitarist, Fisher – along with Martin Carthy and Davey Graham – was among the earliest steel-string players in British folk music, devising a mix of new tunings and inventive picking that has influenced generations of successors. Fisher wanted to make the guitar more compatible with the sound of Scottish music, and is widely regarded as the first to use open tunings to simulate the droning notes of bagpipes. “When I started doing it, I thought it was cheating,’’ he said. “I didn’t even know it had a name.” The Empire State Railway Museum is located at 70 Lower High Street in Phoenicia. The doors open at 7 p.m., with the show beginning at 7:30 prompt. Admission costs $25 or $22 with RSVP to flyingcatmusic@gmail.com or by calling (845) 688-9453. Reservations are strongly encouraged.

Kevin McKrell and Brian Melick of the acclaimed Celtic band the McKrells return to Unison for an evening of Celtic, folk and bluegrass music on Friday, October 2 at 8 p.m. McKrell was a founding member of Celtic folk band Donnybrook Fair. His songs have been recorded or performed by artists like the Kingston Trio, North Sea Gas, Hair of the Dog, the Furey Brothers and Davy Arthur, Seamus Kennedy, the Woods Tea Company, Bob Shane and the Dublin City Ramblers. Melick has been actively involved with music for the past 30 years as a drummer, multi-hand percussionist and educator. He has been a featured artist on over 375 commercially recorded works.

Dave Mason plays Bearsville on October 8 Veteran British rocker Dave Ma-

son slips of a bit of a wink into the name of his current touring project: “Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam, 1967-2015 World Tour.” Mason, of course, was a mad-successful solo act in the mid‘70s, but before that an on-again, offagain member of the jam-oriented British rock band Traffic – a band more associated with the multi-instrumental, vocal and song-co-writing talents of Steve Winwood than with Mason. The other original members of Traffic, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood, have left the planet, and Mason’s claim to the Traffic brand is legitimate, even if the band’s long-form jam vehicles have very little to do with the easygoing songwriter rock of Mason’s famous solo work. Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam visits the legendary Bearsville Theater in Woodstock on Thursday, October 8 at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $25, $45 and $55 and are available at www.bearsvilletheater.com.

Love what you do and share it Hear jazz pianist Lee Shaw perform at Love Bites in Saugerties before WFF screening of Lee’s 88 Keys at the Orpheum this Friday

Y

ou meet pianist Lee Shaw, you love her; it’s as simple as that. When I met her in the early 1990s, I was impressed by her passion for music. I admired the warmth, wisdom and strength of her spirited ways, and her commitment to keep music at the forefront of her life. She’s a powerful force on the keys, delivering her music with buoyancy, clarity and tasteful dynamics. Opportunities to hear Lee play piano or tell stories about her life as a jazz musician are fewer now – nearing 90, she occasionally plays at Capital Region restaurants or for retirement home guests – but Lee’s 88 Keys, a documentary by first-time filmmaker Susan Robbins, is the next-best thing. It’s showing at Woodstock Film Festival on Friday evening, prefaced by a trio performance (featuring longtime bassist Rich Syracuse and drummer Jeff “Siege” Siegel, with special guest pianist Pete Levin) from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at Love Bites in Saugerties. The gig is just around the corner from the Orpheum Theater, where the film shows at 8:30 p.m. The April 2015 premier of Lee’s 88 Keys

studied with Jesu María Sanroma at the Conservatorio de Música de Puerto Rico, where Latin music put its stamp on her music. The Shaws returned to the States, this time to New York City, and their trio performed widely at the City’s most famous jazz clubs (the Village Vanguard, the Half Note, Minton’s Playhouse and other Harlem clubs). They performed at the Apollo Theatre at a benefit to raise funds for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s March on Washington. Lee studied with Oscar Peterson, and passed her knowledge along to countless students, including John Medeski of Medeski, Martin and Wood. The list of accomplished jazz artists with whom she performed includes Arnie Lawrence, Pepper Adams, Zoot Simms, Frank Foster, Al Grey and bandleader Lionel Hampton, who asked her to tour with him. But Lee

drew a standing-room-only crowd to the GE Proctor Theater in Schenectady. Lee left her hospital bed to attend the showing, and to accept the 2015 Jazz Hero Award from the Jazz Journalists’ Association. She performed and shook hands with all who wished to meet her. The film has since been shown at a growing list of film festivals, including the LA Cine Fest, the Florida Movie Festival, the Long Beach International Film Festival, the Orlando Music and Film Festival, the Humanitarian Awards in Jakarta, Indonesia, the Lake Placid Film Forum and others, and is under consideration for the Global Music Awards. I’m not surprised: Lee’s 88 Keys is a lovingly polished gem. Filmmaker Susan Robbins met Lee in 1998 at an Albany arts and education program. Robbins went to Lee’s gigs and visited her home to meet Lee’s husband, Stan, and their dog, Domino. A friendship developed. Then, a series of career moves (Robbins studied acting and was an actor until 2012) and family needs pulled Robbins away from the Capital Region, until one night when she was celebrating her mother’s birthday at Provence Restaurant in Albany. “Lee was playing, and was on oxygen and using a walker. She was much more frail. I said, ‘I have to make a film about her.’ When approached on a gig a couple months later and asked if she’d be willing, Lee said, ‘Let’s do it.’ I started filming in January 2013,” Robbins recalls. The film includes interviews with Lee, Syracuse, Siegel and one of Lee’s bestknown students, John Medeski, as well as jazz critics and others. Conversations are interspersed with live trio performances at Provence and archival photographs from the pianist’s remarkable career. Throughout, Lee recounts career highlights, talks about her life and conveys her joy for performing and teaching music. One of my joys in writing about Lee’s 88 Keys has been listening to Lee’s recordings and revisiting her alternately playful and

turned Hampton down with no regrets because, as she often says, “I would have lost my soulmate, Stan.” “There is nothing I would rather be doing than music – not eating, sleeping, making a million dollars or driving a Cadillac. There is nothing that’s more important to me than playing the piano,” Lee often told Robbins, who added, “She has lived it her entire life. Lee has made music more important than money, than comfort; and [yet she] has always lived a life that is abundantly rich. “Richness isn’t about money. The Dalai Lama will tell you that. If you go on a spiritual retreat, you’ll embrace it. Our society and culture, though, really don’t honor that. Lee’s always known what’s really important: loving what you do and sharing it. It’s a very big message, but it’s very rare, too. People need to be reminded of it,” says Robbins. With 30 hours of footage, Robbins

powerful intensity, and the myriad ways she interacts with the piano keys that she loves so much. She’s got a fearless sass about her, and, as a woman in a career dominated by men, it’s part of her power as a jazz player. Lee was learning to play music when our most influential composers were writing the enduring standards that have become the jazz repertoire. Born in Oklahoma in 1926, she steeped herself in the American Songbook at a time when the tunes were brand-new. Following graduation from the Oklahoma College for Women, Lee’s already-voracious musical appetite led her to pursue a Master’s degree in Piano at the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago. There, the jazz club scene energized and welcomed her, and she was soon playing in clubs all over town. She met and married her husband, drummer Stan Shaw, and the young couple moved to Puerto Rico in 1962. Lee

Tunes for toy piano Catch the radical composer and pianist Phyllis Chen during her residency at SUNY-New Paltz

T

he Kenneth Davenport Residency at SUNY-New Paltz was established by William Davenport in 2007 with the aim of promoting the performance and study of new serious music at New Paltz, an institution that already enjoyed the enduring legacy of a significant late-20th-century composer, the late Gundaris Poné, and the durable new music ensemble that bears his name. But in serious music, “new” needs all the help it can get. “New” is a problematic term in the “classical” music world, a milieu in which the masters, from J. S. Bach (died 1750) through such late Romantics and proto-Modernists as Ravel, Debussy and Prokofiev still account for the lion’s share of concert and chamber music programming. Imagine if The Great Dictator, Nanook of the North, Citizen Kane and maybe one early Woody Allen film (Take the Money and Run?) were the four movies playing at the New Paltz Cinema this weekend, for a poignant parallel. There was a disconnect between serious new music and its popular audience in the early 20th century (let’s not point fingers here; I like Webern very much, thank you, and Bartók and…), and reconnecting has proven to be quite a challenge. In fact, much of what we still consider “new” serious music – for example, the gadfly conceptual (and suddenly revitalized) work of John Cage, La Monte Young and the Minimalists – comes from the late ’50s and early ’60s. New music, in the popular mind, is already 60 years old. In other words, the situation has gotten so dire that “new” now generally refers to a condition of style, not of chronology. So the Davenport residency addresses a situation that is nothing less than urgent. And the complex challenge is not merely to promote the creation and – especially – the performance of new music and its admission into the canon, but also to help condition, prepare and, in some cases, give birth to its audience. The Davenport Residency recognizes the same imperatives that Bard College has with its expansive new degree programs focused on a sustainable and even evangelical approach to new serious music. This year’s recipient of the Davenport Residency is the radical composer and pianist Phyllis Chen, whose devotion to the toy piano, one of John Cage’s axes of choices, signifies her allegiances and imprimatur pretty clearly. Her two releases in this mode, UnCaged Toy Piano and Little Things, are challenging works – primitive and abrasive at some times, alien and magical at others, and mostly mono-timbral throughout. If any composer was ever accused of being a philosopher and cultural agitator more than a music-maker, it was John Cage; but, when approaching music like Chen’s, we do well to remember and heed Cage’s prime directive: Just Listen. That’s where a revival of new music begins. Chen’s residency at New Paltz runs from October 6 through 27, and is highlighted by several public events. “Alex Peh and Friends Present Béla Bartók” kicks off the series on October 6 at 8 p.m. in the Julien J. Studley Theatre, with percussionists Christopher Clarino and Christopher Howard and pianists Wenyin Chan and Alex Peh. The evening will feature performances of groundbreaking American works by Steve Reich and Mark Applebaum, concluding with Bartók’s masterpiece Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. This concert will also be performed at the Wallkill Senior High School on October 5 at 7 p.m. Chen will lead a workshop on her own music and iconic works from the American avant-garde on October 7 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the Nadia & Max Shepard Recital Hall. The workshop will include John Cage’s notorious 4’ 33”, Alvin Lucier’s Nothing Is Real for piano, teapot and electronics and Pauline Oliveros’ Sonic Mediations. A workshop and rehearsal of Lucier’s Opera for Objects will follow the lecture. The event is free and open to the public. The series concludes with the Phyllis Chen Davenport artist-in-residence concert on October 27 at 8 p.m. in Parker Theatre, performed by Chen in collaboration with students and faculty. Chen will feature her newest works: Columba for solo piano, commissioned by the Fromm Music Foundation at Harvard; Mobius for two music boxes; and Lighting the Dark, scored for music boxes, clavichord, accordion and electronics, and inspired by the photography of Paula Gianturco. Tickets for the “Alex Peh and Friends Present Béla Bartók” and Phyllis Chen Davenport artist-in-residence concerts cost $8 for the general public, $6 for seniors aged 62 and over, faculty and staff and $3 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the door prior to the performance. For additional information, call (845) 257-2700 or visit www.newpaltz.edu/music. – John Burdick

now hopes to create a feature film. “Lee’s stories are so fascinating. I loved hearing the musical history, from the early 1900s to the present,” says the filmmaker. “Through making the film, I certainly learned much about filmmaking, which

has been a great learning experience,” says Robbins about envisioning and producing her first film. “But I got so much more than I ever thought I would. Lee is not only immensely talented and hugely knowledgeable; she is wise.”

The Storm King Art Center’s musical programming of the past few seasons has been, as you might expect, heavy on the experimental and conceptual, whether visually oriented and sonically experimental indie-rock bands or serious modern music ensembles such as the Cassatt Quartet. The latter will be appearing amidst the stunning, perplexing and (this most of all) large sculptures at Storm King on Sunday, October 4 at 2 p.m. Well-known for their adventurous interpretations of works by living composers, the Cassatt Quartet has no beef with the old masters either. For their Storm King performance, the program they have prepared includes Mendelssohn’s devastating Quartet in A minor, op. 13, and Dvorák’s “American” Quartet in F major, Op. 96. Admission to the concert is free with park admission. For more information, visit www.stormkingartcenter.org. The Storm King Art Center is located at 1 Museum Road in New Windsor. – John Burdick

Lost in America A verse play explores the cryptic death of Meriwether Lewis Mrs. Grinder: Have you lost someone? Meriwether Lewis: Some thing, although I’m not sure what it was. I had it on the trail to Oregon, But sometime after that, it disappeared. Mrs. Grinder: I’ll drink to that: the loss of nameless things.   he transcontinental trek of Lewis and Clark, which took place from May 1804 to September 1806, spanned more than 8,000 miles. The journey of Oakley Hall III – whose play about the strange demise of Meriwether Lewis opens on Thursday, October 8 at the Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill – was an inner one: Following a near-fatal fall from a bridge over the Schoharie Creek, he wandered in the wilderness of his mind for many years before he was able to retrieve some semblance of himself. In Grinder’s Stand, a verse play that recalls Jacobean drama, both in the rhythms of its language and in its themes of political intrigue and moral corruption, Hall revives the controversy surrounding the death of Lewis, who at the time was governor of the Louisiana Territory. While his death was officially ruled a suicide, so many accounts and details are at variance as to suggest strongly that it was otherwise – whether a simple act of murder, which was practically a daily occurrence along

possessed by that mysterious spark that we call genius. He was also possessed by personal demons that were indispensable, perhaps, to his art, but which eventually drove him to his tragic fate. His accident, which may or may not have been fueled by substance abuse and which, like his hero’s death in Grinder’s Stand, may not have been the suicidal act that it appeared to be, effectively snuffed his creative flame and made him dependent on the kindness of family, friends and lovers for many years. Following that fall – which had the effect, almost, of a prefrontal lobotomy – many of Hall’s intimates began to see uncanny parallels to what happened to him and what happened to some of the characters in his plays. “What’s bizarre about Oakley is that everything he wrote wound up having such resonance to his own life,” says Steven Patterson, who plays the shady James Neelly in this production and was a member of the Lexington Conservatory during its 1971 season. What transpired in Hall’s life, he adds, was almost “like a self-fulfilling prophecy.” Hall completed Grinder’s Stand (the title refers to the wilderness inn where Lewis met his death) the year before his accident. After its Lexington debut a year later, it was not performed again

until 2002, when the Foothill Theatre revived it in Nevada City, not far from the home of Oakley’s parents. In 2009, it was performed al fresco (with live horses!) at Kaw Point Park in Kansas City, Kansas. But the current show, a Kaliyuga Arts production, returns the play to the place where it was born – Greene County – and to many of the people who knew, worked with and were inspired by the playwright. The full story of Oakley Hall’s near-death and eventual, if only partial, resurrection, along with a chronicle of the Lexington Conservatory Theatre in its wild and woolly heyday, is told in Bill Rose’s documentary The Loss of Nameless Things. The film takes it title from an indelible phrase in Hall’s play: one that strikes a particular chord with his own experience and that of Meriwether Lewis. There will be screenings of the film concurrently with the show’s run, as well as an exhibition of photos and ephemera celebrating the legacy of the Lexington Conservatory Theatre. In truth, the journey of Lewis and Clark is a perfect metaphor for the art of Oakley Hall III: an art of “constant, unremitting exploration” that never allows the vision to atrophy, that is willing to risk everything in the service of “inexhaustible beauty.” Hall intuitively

The play, which was given its premiere by the company that Hall founded, the Lexington Conservatory Theatre, in 1979, is as epic as the early 19th-century American frontier of which it sings. Set in 1809, it packs enough drama for three plays, with a cast of seven bringing to vivid life spies, conspirators, scoundrels, Indian agents and a black slave, with intimations of the coming war with the British in 1812.

DANCE

On your toes American Ballet Theatre celebrates 75th anniversary with premiere of Mark Morris work at Bard’s Fisher Center

“N

o choreographer alive has a higher reputation for musicality than Mark Morris…his dances have brought music to meet dance in ways that have expanded our appreciation of the alchemy that these two arts can achieve together.” So wrote Alastair Macaulay in The New York Times last April in a review of the premiere at the Brooklyn Academy of Music of Morris’ dark dreamscape Whelm, set to a Debussy score. Though mostly retired from performing, the 59-year-old superstar choreographer is still regularly churning out new works. His latest dance will be scored to Johann Nepomuk Hummel’s Septet in C, op. 114, “The Military.” It will premiere on October 9 at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts, with live musical accompaniment, danced by American Ballet Theatre (ABT) in its third visit to Bard College. That aforementioned meeting and melding of artistic genres is right up Bard’s determinedly, fluidly cross-disciplinary alley, but there are other serendipities at work here as well. The Fisher Center is known for reviving “lost” operatic works, and Morris has a long and distinguished track record of choreographing operas, including Modernist experiments like Four Saints in Three Acts, Nixon in China and The Death of Klinghoffer. The college bestowed an honorary doctorate on Morris in 2006 (he now has 11), and on that visit, Bard president Leon Botstein alerted the choreographer to the existence of an earlier (1935) and radically different version of Prokofiev’s 1940 score for Romeo and Juliet – one in which Juliet wakes up before Romeo has a chance to kill himself. Morris accepted Botstein’s challenge to choreograph the score, which was unearthed at the Russian State Archive of Literature and Art in Moscow and reconstructed

understood that when art ceases to be exploration, when it ceases to re-create and reinvent itself, it slowly rots and dies. Grinder’s Stand is directed and designed by John Sowle, managing director of the Bridge Street Theatre. The set, in the theater’s Raw Room – a spare and intimate space that formerly housed a factory – beautifully evokes the hardscrabble ruggedness of frontier life in the early 1800s: There’s a dilapidated cabin, a series of wooden planks linking one part of the stage area with another, hundreds of branches along the walls to simulate the forest road that was the Natchez Trace and even a keelboat, with video projections of water glancing off its sides. In addition to Patterson, who is Sowle’s life partner and the artistic director of Bridge Street, the talented cast includes William Dobbins, Stephen Jones, Jon Lee, Phillip X. Levine, Brett Owen and Nancy Rothman. Grinder’s Stand runs from October 8 to 18 at the theater at 44 West Bridge Street in the village of Catskill. Performances take place on Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinées at 2 p.m. A “Pay What You Can” performance will take place on Thursday, October 8.

Let my people go The Whipping Man opens this Friday at Ellenville’s Shadowland Theatre Though Jews have been immigrating to America since the mid-17th century, we tend not to associate them much

with the Civil War, except insofar as Abolitionists and escaping slaves took the Exodus story to heart as a metaphor for liberation and a source for song lyrics. Anyone who has heard that story told as part of a Seder ritual knows that one of the philosophical points invariably made at that meal is the notion that no one on Earth is truly free as long as anyone on Earth remains in bondage. So what if there had been a slave-owning Confederate officer who happened to be Jewish? What would conceivably go through his mind on Passover? Wouldn’t there be a bit of cognitive (or moral) dissonance going on? That’s the premise behind Matthew Lopez’s Outer Critics Circle Awardwinning 2011 drama The Whipping

Tudor tutorials Arts Mid-Hudson’s Shakespeare fest continues with Trivia Night this Saturday, on-camera acting lab beginning Tuesday in Poughkeepsie While summer’s traditional bounty of outdoor Shakespeare productions has ceased for this cycle, there’s never really an offseason for the Bard of Avon. In mid-September, Arts Mid-Hudson launched a six-week extravaganza called “I, Too, Sing Shakespeare” with the opening of an exhibit of Shakespeare-inspired ceramic sculptures by Judy Sigunick at the organization’s Poughkeepsie gallery. You can see them from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday until Oc-

tober 30. On Sunday, October 25 at 1 p.m., Sigunick will talk about the inspirations for her works on view at an Art Brunch at the gallery. This week, the celebration continues with a fun participatory event at the same venue: a Shakespeare Trivia Night, when you can join a team and compete for awards as you show off your in-depth knowledge of the Bardic canon. It takes place this Saturday, October 3 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Even more welcoming to us groundlings will be an informal night of public readings of your favorite Shakespeare (or Shakespeare-influenced) passage, to be held at the gallery the following Saturday, October 10 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The Saturday-evening series will continue in the same time slot with a Shakespeare lecture and discussion led by Lou Trapani of the Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck, on October 17; and “Shakespeare and Food,” readings of favorite banquet scenes from the plays, presented by SUNY-Dutchess’ Ceramics and English Departments on October 24. But for truly serious Shakespeareans, the pièce de résistance of the month-anda-half-long celebration is an on-camera training lab for actors, directors and

Jenny Berger, Diego Velazquez and Kordell Pritchard in Panic

STAGE

THE CRIMINAL MIND SUNY-New Paltz stages NYS premiere of Joseph Goodrich’s mystery play Panic

B

y all accounts, the iconic director of suspense films Alfred Hitchcock had what might be charitably described as a macabre sense of humor. Cruel might be a more accurate word; actors who starred in his movies have subsequently recounted such practical jokes as being handcuffed together, dosed with laxatives and locked in a room by Hitchcock, ostensibly as an “acting exercise.” Certainly the man had an obsession with the dark side of human nature. But might one extrapolate from this evidence that he was personally capable of the sorts of violent crimes that he loved to depict onscreen? Joseph Goodrich, a contemporary playwright who specializes in stage adaptations of stories by such masters of hard-boiled mystery as Rex Stout and Ellery Queen, got to wondering about that question, and ended up channeling his speculations into an original play titled Panic. In it, a Hitchcocklike movie director named Henry Lockwood goes to Paris in 1963 for the premiere of his new film, also titled Panic, only to find himself under suspicion. Accompanied on the trip by his wife Emma and his secretary Miriam, Lockwood expects nothing more than to enjoy another cinematic success and to bask in the adulation of young French film critic Alain Duplay. But when the director is accused of a hideous crime that could destroy his career and his marriage, he’s forced to confront the truth about himself and those closest to him. Lockwood, known the world over as the “Sultan of Suspense,” is caught in a nightmare straight out of one of his own films. Panic was praised for its twisty plot and won Goodrich the prestigious Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America in 2008; but oddly, it has never been staged in New York before. That oversight will be rectified this week and next as the Department of Theatre Arts at SUNY-New Paltz presents the mystery play’s New York premiere in the Parker Theatre on the New Paltz campus. Assistant professor of Theatre Arts Connie Rotunda directs. Better yet, the playwright himself will be in attendance for opening weekend and participate in three supplemental events that will be free and open to the public. Panic opens this Thursday, with 8 p.m. performances on October 1, 2, 3, 15, 16 and 17 and 2 p.m. matinées on October 4 and 18. Panel discussions about the play will be held at 6:30 p.m. this Friday, October 2 in the Student Union Building’s Multipurpose Room and Saturday, October 3 in Parker Theatre. An additional post-show talkback will be held following the October 2 performance. Reserved tickets for all performances cost $18 general admission; $16 for seniors aged 62 and up, SUNY-New Paltz faculty and staff and non-New Paltz students; and $10 for SUNY-New Paltz students. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.newpaltz.edu/theatre or at the Parker Theatre box office, which is open from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For additional information call (845) 257- 3880 or e-mail boxoffice@newpaltz.edu. – Frances Marion Platt

“interested auditors.” Open on an audition basis both to teens and adults, the threesession series will be directed and taught by Roger Hendricks Simon of Simon Studio. A Yale School of Drama grad, Simon has directed and acted for Yale Rep, the New York Shakespeare Festival, London’s Royal Court Theatre, Dublin’s Abbey Theatre, the Williamstown Theatre Festival, the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival, Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Roundabout Theatre, and was founding artistic director of the LA Classical Theatre Lab. Among the thespian luminaries he has directed or coached are James Earl Jones, John Lithgow, John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, James Woods, Tovah Feldshuh and Bibi Andersson.

ART Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick’s Voyage of the Green Man

Documentaries of dreams Nicholas Kahn/Richard Selesnick Lecture and exhibition at SUNY-Ulster’s Muroff Kotler Gallery

P

erhaps you’ve seen them, caught sight of them from the corner of your eye: the costumed bat people, the death dancers, the greenmen, all cavorting or more often hiding in vaguely familiar, long-abandoned carnival sites, empty, limitless greenswards or bloom-filled water meadows. Perhaps you’ve seen such creatures, visited such venues as you wrestled your way out of a dream. Disoriented, you found yourself wondering, for reasons you didn’t understand: Was it your dream or someone else’s? Why do the names “Herr Orlofsky” and “Dr. Falke” ring some distant, fog-shrouded bell in your mind? Perhaps it’s the very bell that tolled in that far-distant tower that you and your two strange companions were never quite able to reach, in that dream that now, upon reflection, seems more like the guttering memory of a once-famous experimental German film from the last days of the Weimar Republic – a film that survives today only in blown-up single frames rescued, somehow, from a Nazi burn barrel. Dream or memory? Real or false? Welcome to the mysterious and mysteriously moving artworks of Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick, sorcerers of the unconscious, photographers of the imaginary. A portion of their teeming teamwork will be on display at the Muroff Kotler Gallery at SUNY-Ulster beginning October 8. Gallery coordinator Suzy Jeffers likes to present the works of local artists in this gem of a gallery. Though she is herself a photography teacher and was well aware of Kahn and Selesnick’s work, she was surprised to discover that the two men live nearby: Kahn in Hudson and Selesnick in Rhinebeck. She was equally delighted when they agreed to present their work at SUNY-Ulster; their more typical venues have included the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. “Their work is amazingly imaginative,” Jeffers said last week. “It transports you to different references, both past and future. I find their work both curious and psychically far-reaching.” Kahn and Selesnick were both born in 1964, in New York City and London respectively; they’ve been friends and artistic collaborators since their days together as students at the Art School at Washington University in St. Louis in the early 1980s. They work primarily in the fields of photography and installation art, specializing in fictitious histories set in the past or future. Kahn said last week that he was comfortable with their work being called “fictional documentaries.” He also gave the impression of not caring a bit what

Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick’s Melora, from the series Truppe Fledermaus

descriptions people hang on their works. That’s a decision best left to viewers, he said. He likened their collaborations to novels or movies that viewers can wander through. The documentary strain of Kahn’s art can be traced to Kahn’s father Jerry, who served as a photographer in the US Army during World War II. The images and artifacts that he brought home from the war intrigued him, Kahn said. Jerry Kahn was also a key player in what turned out to be the dying days of the old Movietone newsreels. With his deep knowledge of the documentary format

and with a newsman’s experience, Jerry Kahn went on to create news programs for fledgling TV stations in the 1960s. His father’s influence, Kahn said, can be seen in many of the images that he and Selesnick have conjured over the years: old photos of strangers, worthless bank notes, newsreel images. It’s all about, he said, creating worlds – worlds initially populated by people and creatures and places that invite the viewer to conjure their own connections, to become part of a personal story whose truth lies beyond the merely

factual, out there where greenmen and death dancers and refugees from the collective unconscious are at least as real as the nightmares of our youth or of the daily newscast. While Messrs. Orlofsky and Falke have sent their regrets, claiming their required attendance at a performance of Johann Strauss’s Die Fledermaus that evening, Kahn and Selesnick are expected to attend the opening reception and slide lecture at SUNY-Ulster’s College Lounge in Vanderlyn Hall at 7 p.m. on October 8. The exhibit will run through November 6 at the Muroff Kotler. – Jeremiah Horrigan Kahn & Selesnick slide lecture, exhibition & opening reception, Thursday, October 8, 7 p.m., Vanderlyn Hall, SUNY-Ulster; exhibition runs October 8 through November 6, Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery, SUNY-Ulster, 491 Cottekill Road, Stone Ridge; (845) 6875113; http://www.sunyulster.edu.

ll around the US, there are artists who look to Poughkeepsie as a defining mark on their CVs. That’s because of the “New Directions” annual juried national contemporary art exhibit run for years now by the city’s Barrett House, and up for its 2015 outing through October now. Juried this year by Janet Bishop of the increasingly prestigious San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the 29-yearold competitive show looks for diversity and eclecticism, contextual innovation as well as beauty, and a sense of actual new direction in the work each year. Simultaneously, the annual shows have an added warmth about them – partly the result of their 1830s Greek Revival townhouse setting, and partly the ways in which each invitational exhibition gets hung. – Paul Smart 2015 “New Directions” exhibit, through October 31, Wednesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturdays, 12 noon-3 p.m., Barrett Art Center, 55 Noxon Street, Poughkeepsie; www.barrettartcenter.org.

carry the history of these materials into their new life as my artwork,” she says of the discarded bits of metal and scraps of fabric that become people and their rural/urban surroundings. “When I use encaustics, which is wax, it adds another layer to look through or work on. I try to speak to what unfolds beneath the surface; it is the relationships that I

discover through the trial and error of moving pieces around until they form the narratives I am looking for.” Hoyt, native to the Catskills, has won top awards and fellowships for her unique art; her pieces have ended up in several top museum collections, including the Guggenheim in New York City. “Judith Hoyt: To the Rescue” opens with a 5 to 7

Melissa McGill’s “Constellation” on Bannerman’s Island

Beacon artist Melissa McGill created Constellation, a large-scale art installation on Pollepel Island that has 17 slender, tapered aluminum poles at heights ranging from 40 to 80 feet tall positioned around the perimeter of the Bannerman Castle ruin. Atop each pole is a small solar-powered LED light that gives a reference point of “the structure still standing, as well as those details which no longer exist.” On Wednesday, October 7, McGill will present a master class, “Constellation,” from 1:30 to 3:15 p.m. at SUNY-Orange, during which she will explain her muchpublicized art piece from its concept through the trials of execution. The class, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Tower Café of the Tower Building, located at 1 Washington Center at the corner of Broadway and Colden Street in Newburgh. On-street metered parking is available on Broadway and free,


secure parking is available in the college garage via the 81 First Street entrance. The windows of the Café offer views of the Hudson River, including Pollepel Island. McGill has a love for being on the water, as she grew up in the Long Island Sound hamlet of Port Washington. So, going out to Pollepel Island to discover firsthand about Bannerman Castle was a natural for her. She mentions that through her many years of creating art, she has been “influenced by Land art and Conceptual art, citing Robert Irwin and Robert Smithson as ‘touchstones’ whose sculptural, often transient works explore art’s relationship with nature.” She often viewed and came to admire their work at Dia:Beacon, when she worked there as a docent. Having graduated with honors from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA, McGill has come to be known for her passion about art in public spaces and its ability to contribute to communities in a larger sense. Her work involves an interdisciplinary process, primarily incorporating drawing, sculpture, sound and space. In addition to showing her artworks in exhibits in New York City, she has exhibited internationally at White Cube in London, Palazzo Capello in Venice and Norrtalje Konsthall in Norrtalje, Sweden and nationally at Power House in Memphis and the Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase. Come and enjoy an afternoon experiencing this artist’s creative process on inspiration, considering an idea and the ensuing method of trial and error.

UC Jewish Federation’s fall film/lecture series kicks off this Thursday Since the late 1980s, the Ulster County Jewish Federation has been offering programs to the greater community that deal with Israel and contemporary Jewish issues through the screening of films and through insightful lectures presented by prominent speakers. “Our aim is to bring informative, enlightening, entertaining and, most importantly, factual information,” says Nathan Borsky, chairman of the Federation’s Israel Advocacy Committee. This season’s series of events promises to deliver. On Thursday, October 1, see Ushpizin at Congregation Agudas Achim on Lucas Avenue Extension in Kingston. This critically acclaimed look at the daily lives of ultra-Orthodox Jews learning, living and loving in modern-day Israel offers inspiration to people of all ages and backgrounds. Dancing in Jaffa will be screened at Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley on Albany Avenue in Kingston on Tuesday, October 13. This award-winning Israeli documentary follows the famous ballroom dance teacher Pierre Dulaine, who returns to Jaffa and brings Jewish and Palestinian children together on the dancefloor in his own unique peace process. A comprehensive lecture titled “Making Sense of It All” will be given by Lew Brownstein, professor of International Relations at SUNY-Ulster, on Tuesday, October 20 at Congregation Ahavath Israel on Lucas Avenue Extension. On Tuesday, October 27, The Green Prince will be screened at Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley. The film is about a young Arab man who is arrested for smuggling guns for Hamas and becomes a spy for Israel. On Tuesday, November 10, Fill the Void, a film that tells the story of an 18-year-old Israeli woman compelled to obey the religious law of her ultraOrthodox Hasidic community, will be screened at Congregation Ahavath Israel. On Tuesday, November 17, it’s Beneath the Helmet in Lecture Center Room 108 at SUNY-New Paltz. The film illustrates

how young Israeli men and women are defending their homeland and the Jewish values of peace, equality, opportunity, democracy, religious tolerance and women’s rights. The series ends on Tuesday, December 1 at Congregation Ahavath Israel with The Zigzag Kid: a tale about Nono, a 13-year-old Dutch boy who

runs away from problems at home. Discussion and refreshments follow each evening’s presentation, and admission is always free. More information about the Israel Advocacy Committee can be had by contacting (845) 679-4542. – Ann Hutton

he Shawangunk Ridge loomed just over their shoulders as Ron Knapp and Michael Neil O’Donnell sat discussing their new book at the back balcony of the Mudd Puddle Café in New Paltz last week. The Ridge had never looked better – not, at least, in the last 150 years or so. Knapp’s and O’Donnell’s book, which bears the rather unwieldy title The Gunks (Shawangunk Mountains) Ridge and Valley Towns through Time, offers plenty of proof of how much sweeter and greener the landscape is now than it was back when. “People assume this was the primeval forest,” Knapp said, indicating with a nod of his head the Ridge and the farmland that lies at its base behind him. “But much of it was an ‘industrial’ landscape one

of the communities that have grown up in its shadow. It’s also what Knapp calls a tribute to the work of a single man whose impact on the Ridge and its surrounding towns and villages would be hard to overestimate: Albert Smiley, one of the visionary Quaker twins who transformed and preserved the Ridge with the creation of the Mohonk Mountain House. Knapp is an expert on Chinese vernacular architecture and distinguished professor at SUNY-New Paltz, with more than 20 books to his credit. He and his friend, the late Dennis O’Keefe, began discussing the idea of creating a “then-and-now” book about the region that would draw on O’Keefe’s extensive postcard collection. The idea was to reshoot scenes from the past from the identical point of view, to see what had changed between back then and the present. But when O’Keefe died in 2006, Knapp “pretty much put it on the back burner.” Knapp relit that burner about three years ago when he and O’Donnell began talking about the possibilities. O’Donnell, a self-described “data guy” by profession, is a landscape photographer of some repute and a member of the Mohonk Preserve’s corps of 50-some photography volunteers. O’Donnell and six other members of that cadre set about the sometimes-daunting task of matching archival photographs, not only of the Ridge, but also of New

Paltz, Gardiner, Rosendale, High Falls and Marbletown. It wasn’t always difficult to find a relevant point of view at places where structures still stood, O’Donnell said. But some locations had changed so drastically with the years that the group spent hours debating the accuracy of some of the presumed sites. Discoveries were made and questions posed that remain unanswered: What explains the dramatic loss of lichens on the vertical surfaces of rock around Lake Mohonk? When and why were the eye-catching Italianate wraparound balconies of the New Paltz Hotel (née the Palmer House) at Main Street and Wurts Avenue removed? More generally, what were people thinking when they allowed the Phillies Covered Bridge to fall into disrepair and, ultimately, into the Wallkill River? Out of all the exploration and research emerges a picture – multiple pictures – of a forgotten, long-ago landscape: one of bustling train depots gone silent; of trolley cars brimming with passengers whose tracks now lie buried beneath car-friendly asphalt; of indestructible-seeming steel bridges gone to rot; and, perhaps most poignantly, of the two great m o u n t a i n houses at Lake Minnewaska that sur vived changing fashion, only to burn to the ground under mysterious circumstances in 1978 and 1986. The Gunks documents the never-ending change that the region has encountered, craved and survived since the mid-19th century: the D & H Canal, the Catskill Aqueduct and, perhaps most importantly, the Mohonk Mountain House, out of which has grown not only a world-class resort, but also a way of seeing and being with nature through the Mohonk Preserve unlike almost anyplace on Earth. Knapp credits Albert Smiley, who began creating Mohonk Mountain House in 1869 with his brother Alfred, who subsequently developed the Lake Minnewaska properties, with having the vision to find a way to “manipulate” the natural surroundings without exploiting or destroying them. When, for example, farming was losing favor and people going broke in the lands surrounding the Lake Mohonk hotel at the turn of the 20th century, Albert Smiley had the foresight to buy up the properties that ultimately became part of the Preserve. The Gunks is both a reference work

The University of Wisconsin varsity sport rowing team in front of the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge. They competed in the Intercollegiate Rowing Association regatta on June 11, 1914.

If you’ve seen a regatta, it’s hard to forget it. Ditto for the simple art of sculling practices. Think of the Charles between Boston and Cambridge, or the Schuylkill just west of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Think Eakins’ grand paintings of sleek craft slicing water, keen men urging on their rowers, or the elegance of Henley. This Monday, October 5, the Lloyd Historical Society in Highland will feature a talk about the history of Hudson River rowing and the intercollegiate regattas that were once a regional thrill. Marist College Crew coach Tom Sanford will bring together artifacts, video and still pictures to illustrate the races that used to bring the river to a standstill, and require special trains for regatta aficionados from up and down the East Coast.

Thomas Prichard Rossiter, A Picnic on the Hudson, 1863, Collection of the Julia L. Butterfield Memorial Library

At Boscobel House and Gardens in Garrison, next door to the artist’s last home, the first major retrospective of paintings by Thomas Prichard Rossiter since the man’s death in 1871 is unlike much of what we see from the region or period, being mostly focused on portraits, heroic tableaux and dramatic landscapes elsewhere. This tendency to go beyond the transcendent and scenic into past modes of historymaking, says curator Bruce Weber of the Museum of the City of New York, is one of the reasons that Rossiter rose as a prodigy, only to get overlooked later in his life. It’s also one of the reasons why his works sell in a variety of price ranges, depending more on who

Nearly drowned Clinton Historical Society presents talk on aborted Dutchess reservoir project this Friday

T

he town of Clinton in Dutchess County is best characterized as “a nice place to live,” says Dick Coller, board trustee of the Town of Clinton Historical Society. Clinton Corners, where the Historical Society meets each month, is one of seven hamlets in the town, he explains, each of which is “completely rural,” without supermarkets, restaurants, billboards or strip malls. But if the old Board of Water Supply of the City of New York had had its way in the 1920s, those hamlets would no longer exist. That’s because the plan back then was to flood major parts of Dutchess County in order to create reservoirs to serve New York City. Had that occurred, all of Clinton Corners as well as Schultzville and many other parts of Clinton would be underwater today. Of course, this is what eventually happened in Ulster County after 1910 when the Ashokan Reservoir was built, wiping out several hamlets in the process. Coller will give a presentation about all of this at the next meeting of the Town of Clinton Historical Society on Friday, October 2 at 7:30 p.m. at the Creek Meeting House, located at 2433 Salt Point Turnpike in Clinton Corners. In “Clinton Hamlets Threatened by Dutchess Dams,” Coller will display a map detailing the plan and discuss how and why it never came to fruition. The presentation will include a video of the Ashokan project. The Town of Clinton, population 4,312 as of 2010, was named in honor of governor George Clinton when it was formed in 1786. It became a town in 1788, but was reduced in size in 1821 when Hyde Park and Pleasant Valley were formed from it. The town contains four buildings that are on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Creek Meeting House in Clinton Corners, constructed by Quakers in 1777. The Clinton Historical Society owns the building now, maintaining its archive of photographs, town records, census data from 1790 to 1930 and the largest collection of railroad memorabilia in Dutchess County. The Clinton Historical Society has been in existence since 1975. In addition to Clinton Corners, the organization covers the history of the other six hamlets in the town: Clinton Hollow, Frost Mills, Schultzville, Pleasant Plains, Hibernia and Bulls Head. Meetings are held the first Friday of each month most of the year; they don’t meet in the summer. Some of the meetings are based around a dinner, Coller adds, so usually it amounts to about five or six programs a year that feature a speaker discussing a variety of topics of historical interest. Coming up will be a speaker giving a presentation about Camp Boiberik, a Yiddish-culture summer camp founded in the area in 1913. It operated in Rhinebeck from 1923 to 1979 under the auspices of the Sholem Aleichem Folk Institute, but despite maintaining a kosher kitchen and observing shabbat, the camp considered itself secular and apolitical. After the camp closed, the grounds were purchased by the Omega Institute, which maintains its facilities there today. – Sharyn Flanagan “Clinton Hamlets Threatened by Dutchess Dams” presentation, Friday, October 2, 7:30 p.m., free, Town of Clinton Historical Society meeting, Creek Meeting House, 2433 Salt Point Turnpike, Clinton Corners; (315) 859-1392, clintonhistoricalsociety@yahoo.com.

As such, there’s a wonderful comparative element to “Every Kind of a Painter: Thomas Prichard Rossiter (1818-1871)” that puts the much-lauded Hudson River School of painting practiced by his friends and peers into historic relevance.

Previous Trivia Night questions have included: How many miles did the D & H Canal span? Which important New York State city was originally named Beverwijck? What was the given name of Ulster County native Isabella Baumfree? Who were the opening and closing performers at the 1969 Woodstock Festival? There will be a light buffet, dessert and refreshments, including soft drinks and wine. The winning teams will also receive prizes. Admission to this evening of fun and education costs $20 per person or $13 for Ulster County Historical Society members. Proceeds will benefit UCHS’s cultural events and archival upkeep. The Ulster County Historical Society was established in 1859 and throve until 1862 when its founder, state senator George C. Pratt, was mortally wounded at the Second Battle of Bull Run. Revived in 1930 by Judge G. V. D. Hasbrouck, the UCHS has a twofold mission: to act as curator and collector of significant Hudson Valley artifacts, documents and cultural items and to educate the public on the pivotal role that Ulster County has played in the formation of the nation. The Bevier House on Route 209 in Stone Ridge serves as the UCHS museum space. UCHS sponsors numerous educational and cultural events from May 1 through the end of December.

International Conference of Women Torah Scribes to be held in Woodstock

Jen Taylor Friedman is the first woman in modern times to have written an entire Torah.

The reading of the Torah is central to Jewish religious practice, and the writing of the Torah scroll is a deeply spiritual task, which has remained essentially unchanged for thousands of years. In the last 15 years, however, a momentous shift has occurred: Torah scribes have traditionally been male, but now a small number of women are painstakingly inscribing the Hebrew letters with their feather or reed pens onto sheets of parchment, still made from animal skins that are then stitched together to make the scroll. “It’s the final frontier of inclusion of women into Jewish life,” said Rabbi Jonathan Kligler, head of the Woodstock Jewish Congregation’s Lev Shalem Institute. Some of the world’s approximately 54 women Torah scribes will be gathering at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation

(WJC) for the Third International Conference of Women Torah Scribes, held from October 12 to 14. Members of general public are invited to the Friday night (10/9) and Saturday morning (10/10) Shabbat services, the opening of an exhibit of Judaica artworks by the women Torah scribes on Saturday night, a daylong workshop of Jewish scribal arts on Sunday (10/11) and Jewish scribal arts family school, open to parents and kids, on Tuesday, October 13. At the Shabbat services, which include a reading of the Torah on October 10, “Some of the scribes will be teaching the meanings of the letters and talk about their work,” said Rabbi Kligler, who after serving as the rabbi of the congregation for many years now oversees the programming at the WJC’s Lev Shalem Institute, which is sponsoring the conference. (The

conference and accompanying events reflect the Institute’s commitment to learning, teaching and spiritual growth through retreats and classes in Judaism.) One of the participating scribes is Rachel Reichardt, traveling from Sao Paulo, Brazil, who will talk about how the Hebrew letters make up the world. The conference came about after Rabbi Kligler spoke to Linda Kaye, a friend of the WJC who is studying to become a Torah scribe, about how the congregation could support the community of women Torah scribes through networking and communicating to the world at large their work and efforts. The participating network of women scribes has a website, www.stamscribes.com, and they are led by Jen Taylor Friedman, of Montreal, a distinguished scholar and scribe who is the first woman on record to have written

an entire Torah scroll, in 2007. The group attending the conference also includes Kaye, who will be traveling to Woodstock from her home in New Zealand; Reichardt, from Brazil; Linda Coppleson, who has completed two Torah scrolls and is based in New Jersey; Rabbi Linda Motzkin of Saratoga Springs, who is founder of the Community Torah Project and has conducted workshops around the world; Rachel Jackson, from Chicago; and Alexandra Casser, based in Dallas. Rabbi Kligler said that several women scribes from Israel will be participating in the

conference via Skype. Writing a Torah scroll is a painstaking exercise in calligraphy that can take from six months to a year to complete, he said. The scroll, which comprises the first five books of the Jewish Bible, consists of the written word of God, to Jewish understanding, and hence must be undertaken with “refined intention,” said Rabbi Kligler. “The scribal tradition is a guild of practitioners passing down this body of lore and knowledge from 2,000 years ago. If you look at a scroll from the tenth century and compare it with one

completed a week ago, they’re the same.” Scribes use a specially formulated ink made of natural materials, write on parchment usually made from a cow or goatskin and sew the sheets together with gut. The Hebrew text does not have punctuation or vowel markings, since in ancient times, when people were on the move and materials like parchment were the result of extensive handmade effort, “space was at a premium.” “Because there are no vowel markings, you can read the Hebrew words in different ways, based on the way you

vocalize them,” said Rabbi Kligler. “The Torah can be interpreted in multiple ways.” At each synagogue, the handwritten Torah scroll is kept in an ark, from which it is removed and a portion read during each Sabbath; the reading of the entire five books is completed each year. The timing for the gathering of women Torah scribes at the WTC is perfect, given that the event marks the new beginning on Shabbat Breishit, when the annual cycle of the Torah readings starts afresh with the words “In the Beginning,” from Genesis. “The idea is that the letters are alive,” said Rabbi Kligler. “When God says, ‘Let there be light,’ the utterance of the word makes it be.” In addition to the reading of the Torah, there will be a teaching by the visiting women scribes and a discussion at the Friday and Saturday Shabbats. At the opening of the art show, scheduled from 7 to 10 p.m. on Saturday night, several of the scribes will talk about their work. There will also be a crafts fair that will include objects related to the religious calligraphic tradition. The religious services and the art show opening are free and open to all. The Sunday workshop, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., requires registration and costs $80 ($40 for members of the WJC), including a catered lunch. The scribes will host workshops on all aspects of their craft, including a presentation by Rabbi Linda Motzkin

on the making of the scroll itself; in her own practice, she procures deerskins from local hunters and scrapes and stretches the hides herself. (WTC member Irwin Rosenthal, who with his wife, Doris Goldberg, is hosting Linda Kaye, the scribe-in-training from New Zealand, ruefully noted that “Some scribes don’t want animals slaughtered for the skins, and so they use roadkill.”) There may also be demonstrations of the slow, laborious process of writing the Hebrew letters. The Jewish Scribal Arts school, for parents and kids, will be held Tuesday from 4 to 8 p.m. and will involve learning and working from the women Torah scribes. Will every Torah scroll find a home? Most definitely, said Rabbi Kligler. Although they’re expensive, given the amount of labor, new scrolls are in demand as the old ones wear out. “It’s a high privilege to commission a Torah scroll,” he said.

One of the documentarians at the forefront of this trend to collect undeniable visual data documenting global threats like climate change is a resident of Ulster County (when he stays in one spot long enough to be called a resident of anyplace smaller than Planet Earth). That’s Jon Bowermaster, who in 1989 to 1990 filmed Will Steger’s seven-month crossing of Antarctica by dogsled, and then spent the decade from 1998 to 2008 touring and filming the world’s oceans by sea kayak for his Oceans 8 project. In recent years he has begun working in the highdefinition film format and also taken on the issue of hydrofracking, producing the documentary Dear Governor Cuomo about the battle in New York State; a sequel, Dear President Obama, is currently in production. Bowermaster was putting the finishing touches on his SoLa: Louisiana Water Stories, which he began filming in 2008, when British Petroleum’s Deepwater Horizon oilwell in the Gulf of Mexico exploded in 2010. That film gorgeously captured a place and a way of life that many believe will never return. Since then, Bowermaster and his camera have revisited the area many times, interviewing fishermen, scientists, politicians, environmentalists and

power couples. His Significant Other, singer Natalie Merchant, is also an anti-fracking activist and headlined the fundraising concert that forms the narrative core of Dear Governor Cuomo. So it’s no great surprise that another documentary offering in WFF 2015, Paradise Is There: A Memoir by Natalie Merchant, lists Bowermaster as the producer. Scheduled to screen at 9:15 p.m. this Thursday, October 1 at the Woodstock Playhouse, with tix still available, Paradise Is There was written and directed by Merchant to accompany her LP of the same title, due for release in November. On the new record, she has rerecorded the 11 songs on her critically acclaimed first solo album, Tigerlily, to mark its 20th anniversary. The autobiopic incorporates archival footage from her early days fronting 10,000 Maniacs, clips of live performances and interviews with fellow musicians, friends and fans about Tigerlily’s influences on them. She’s the Best Thing in It Another documentary about a show-biz icon residing in Ulster County, veteran actress Mary Louise Wilson, may very well be sold out by the time this issue hits the newsstands (but it’s always worth a call to the WFF box office to double-check). Screenings are scheduled for 7:45 p.m. on Saturday, October 3 at Upstate Films Woodstock and for 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 4 at Upstate Films Rhinebeck. She’s the Best Thing in It is produced and directed by another local, Ron Nyswaner. Best-known for his Oscar-nominated screenplay for Jonathan Demme’s 1993 film Philadelphia, Nyswaner more recently was writer/co-executive producer for two seasons of Showtime’s Ray Donovan and is currently wearing the same hats for Season 5 of Homeland. But he has never done a documentary feature before. The woman who inspired him to this new undertaking, now age 79, won a Tony Award for her Broadway turn as Big Edie in Grey Gardens and has been

in about a million movies and TV shows, though rarely in a lead role. Wilson is a character actress who’s also quite clearly a “character,” packing lots of outrageous tales of the life of a theatrical vagabond. Her memoir My First Hundred Years in Show Business just came out this past summer, and you can read a piece about her book tour by Almanac’s Ann Hutton right here: http://bit.ly/1FGPOUV. Featuring interviews with actresses Frances McDormand, Melissa Leo, Tyne Daly, Estelle Parsons and Valerie Harper and playwright Doug Wright, She’s the Best Thing in It discusses what it means to be a character actor, whether acting can be taught, what constitutes “talent” and whether the profession is harder for women. Watch the feisty and at times hilarious Wilson teach her first acting class to skeptical members of the YouTube generation, smashing their red-carpet illusions and challenging them to bring emotional honesty into their acting. Sounds like fun! Good Ol’ Boy These days, if you need to see a medical specialist in Ulster or Dutchess County, the chances are fairly high that the person you consult will be a native of a South Asian country. I used to imagine some crazed recruiter out there, visiting every medical school on the Indian subcontinent, wooing promising young doctors-to-be with fanciful tales of how much they’d love the balmy subtropical climate of the Hudson Valley. America the Melting Pot’s demographic patterns are forever changing, but our local Yellow Pages weren’t always full of Hindi surnames – certainly not yet so in 1979, when the family comedy Good Ol’ Boy, shot entirely on location in Ulster County, is set. Based on a true story, Good Ol’ Boy is about a family of pioneering immigrants from India who move to the US with hopes of living the American Dream. While their 10-year-old boy Smith falls head-over-heels for the girl next door, his desire to become a “good ol’ boy” (yes, we may be a Blue State, but upstate New York is still full of ’em) propels him further away from his family’s ideals than ever before. The movie is a tribute to childhood heroes, first love and growing up in Small Town America, with a healthy dollop of culture shock thrown in. The movie is directed by Australian actor/producer Frank Lotito, who coproduced it with veteran South AsianAmerican producer/writer/actor Anjul Nigam (Bad Words, Grey’s Anatomy, True Detective) and Steve Straka. The cast includes Nigam, Jason Lee, Brighton Sharbino, Hilarie Burton, Jake Busey, Tim Guinee, Alison Wright, Poorna Jagannathan and Samrat Chakrabarti,

who now lives in Saugerties. The cast also includes Danielle Brooks, James McCaffrey and Casper Andreas, and Richard Linklater is the executive producer. Screenings are scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Friday, October 1 at the Woodstock Playhouse and 6 p.m. on Friday, October 2 at the Orpheum Theater in Saugerties (the latter was nearly sold out as of presstime).

I Dream Too Much Also shot in upstate New York was a new feature about intergenerational friendship starring two-time Oscar nominee Diane Ladd. Ladd plays Vera, the artistic great-aunt of Dora, a romantic, unfocused recent college graduate portrayed by Eden Brolin (Ruby Sparks), daughter of Josh Brolin. Fleeing her New Jersey home, where her practical mother is pressuring her to study for the LSATs, Dora takes refuge with Vera in her upstate home, assisting her when she becomes housebound after breaking her foot. In the time that they spend together, Dora and Vera both learn that no matter your age, now is always a good time to follow your dreams. I Dream Too Much is the sophomore feature from director/screenwriter Katie Cokinos, an indie from the Austin area

its controversial precursor est, has offered evening seminars in Kingston to graduates of its flagship program, the Landmark Forum, for years. With topics like commitment, creativity, integrity, money, sex and intimacy and numerous others, the educational corporation has designed a series of tensession seminars that delve into each subject. The inquiry into what it takes to live fully reputedly allows participants to uncover their ability to create possibility in their lives. Interested in how the lessons learned in Landmark programs can filter out into the greater community, I interviewed three graduates about their subsequent endeavors. Laurie Schwartz began her training in 1979. “I was asked to figure out who I am, what’s my purpose, what do I stand for. I didn’t know,” she said. “I knew there was

a passion inside me out of the experience I’d had with my father’s death: the feeling that it wasn’t done in a way that enhanced his life or inspired our lives. I knew there had to be a different way. “In the training, I declared that I am someone who is able to see what’s missing and put it into place. So out of that, I created Hospice here in Ulster County; and with the support of the seminars I did that for a long while. Also, with some other people in one of the seminars, I created this organization called Community Possibilities to find people from lowincome areas who had a desire or a goal, but didn’t know how to attain it. People were referred to the four of us – someone who wanted a playground for their kids, a daycare center, a job-shadowing program – so we worked with them for six months, using the all technology of the seminars

to empower them to move forward. “Somewhere along the line, I realized I had dropped something out in my declaration. I’d walk into a place and, in seeing what was missing, I wasn’t appreciating what was. When I realized that, I stopped short. I didn’t want to be the one to point out to everybody what’s wrong and then fix it. After recognizing that, I changed my declaration to: I’m the one through which the Creator does the work. Out of this work that I’ve done, I get the vision that I can do. Nothing can stop me but me. “In 1986, Nathan [Brenowitz] and I started the Woodstock Jewish Congregation because we had two boys, and there wasn’t a synagogue here. I didn’t really have a very Jewish background, so I wanted this for my sons. We started by inspiring people. We put out the word and had a bagel brunch. We both spoke and asked for donations, and had our first service – and right away we were forced to expand the space, because 150 people came! People we didn’t even know were Jewish showed up. Now, 30 years later, we have 350 member families; people who aren’t Jewish come to services, a lot of exJews come: people who were turned off after their bar mitzvah. WJC is egalitarian in that both women and men can lead services. We decided we’d always have High Holy Day services in a tent, but we bought a building, which is now paid off. It’s a good thing.” Now Schwartz is working with Circle of Friends for the Dying, a non-profit


October 1, 2015 enterprise to create a home for the dying: a place where anyone with three months or less to live who needs a place where Hospice can serve them may stay at no charge. “Again, people ask, ‘How can you afford this when you don’t charge?’ It will come – by holding that reality that anything is possible. It’s actually because of Landmark; that’s why I do the work I do. In other words, Landmark didn’t influence my work; Landmark actually caused my work. Nathan and I wouldn’t be who we are today if it wasn’t for our participation in Landmark.” In Saugerties, a small group of people are working together within the precepts of the Transition Town Movement on a project called the Long Spoon Collective. Larry Ulfik, a technological consultant in the freeze-drying industry, lives there on two acres on which he’s growing food for himself and his family and associates. “Transition Town is a worldwide project that I first became aware of at the farmers’ market where I volunteer. At one point I manned the table set up by Transition Town, and I met four young people who were really interested in growing a community in Saugerties – one that could be resilient into the future. “I put this young group together with a farmer and started a project we called the Garlic Project. We pooled our resources, bought 80 pounds of garlic seed at the Festival. We prepared the beds, doubledug them without using fossil fuel and planted the garlic and carried it through to the harvest. From that came the Long Spoon Collective of about 13 core members who live within biking distance from each other, and a further community of 50 people who get notices about our food shares and who have donated their land to create a garden or plant edible food trees on their property. “We dismantled a building for someone we met in a café, and saved all the materials to build shelves for our greenhouses. We have blitzes, all gathering at one site, for instance, to cull firewood for one member. Or another time, we had a blitz to dig fencepost holes for the start of a permaculture garden. There’s a lot of technology put into this program

ALMANAC WEEKLY that comes from millennia ago, such as terracing. We incorporate new technology with old technology. “What led me to the Long Spoon Collective was my participation in Landmark’s Self-Expression Leadership Program [SELP]. I was searching for something, and the Transition program jumped out and found me. What the world was calling me to do – my skill is putting people together. I network very well, finding people who are interested in cooperating with us so that our little community – Saugerties is the perfect place to live – thrives. An awareness of how we can cooperate together without basing it in money, increasing the diversity: That’s the next step. “I woke up this morning and had this insight into inventing a possibility: I invented the possibility of having your back. The context is my relationship with the people around me. So, whatever is left unfinished, instead of making it annoying, which it could easily be – like a dish here, a tool there, not putting things back – I realized that everybody I’m involved with is running at top speed; they are not sitting on their laurels doing nothing. So, if something gets left undone, I’ve got their back. That allows me to clean up the kitchen, keep the house in order, think about things like that in a positive way. It makes a huge difference. “The other thing that Landmark has given me is the ability to look at overarching difficulties, to try to get everybody of diverse opinions into one space and then talk about it in a rational way. I never would have had that possibility. It would always have been very argumentative and forceful, like ‘Get out of my way, here I come.’ Now I can see those things that people have that are in the way of communicating. Wherever we are, we can create the space for communication. Being cause in the matter – I am responsible for everything in my life.” In Kingston, Linda Joseph had recently done the Forum and was involved in Landmark’s SELP at the same time that the first Gay Pride Parade took place in 2004. “Afterwards we sat at an evaluation

meeting,” she says, “and Ginny Apuzzo said to me, ‘Linda, how would you like to start a gay center in Kingston?’ There was nothing between New York and Albany. Our first meeting had over 40 people of all ages, and 22 of us formed the founding committee. We asked current service agencies, ‘What services would you offer to the LGBTQ community?’ and when they said, ‘None,’ they asked us to come and educate them. The only agency that had anything was Planned Parenthood; they had a gay youth group running, which has expanded and now meets at our Center. “I had just started the SELP at Landmark, and I took on this project to show some form of leadership. I was there to write up the mission statement with Ginny, and she got us a startup grant for $35,000. She had a lot of connections, and we had many people who served on committees. The building we occupy now is 6,000 square feet, with a beautiful salon on the first floor and offices on the second. We run everything you can think of to serve the LGBTQ community: a men’s group, a women’s group, a youth trans group, a PFLAG group for parents and friends; we have prominent people involved in these. We have youth dances and a sewing group, film nights, political representatives coming in to hear the needs of the community. We have touched

every agency that works in service. They come to our meetings to find out what they can do. I’m thrilled to sit at the reception desk and meet people who’ve just come to the area and want to know what’s available. The Center has given me a tremendous sense of joy and belonging in this community.” The emphasis of self-development for the purpose of taking action out in the greater community – into schools, organizations and business endeavors – is key. The upcoming seminar for Landmark graduates is called “Breakthrough: Living outside the Box,” which investigates how breakdowns can be used to generate transformational breakthroughs in any area of life. Concurrent with each evening seminar, a free introduction to the Landmark Forum will be offered to the public. – Ann Hutton Landmark Graduate Seminar, “Breakthrough: Living outside the Box,” Mondays, October 12-January 11, 7-10 p.m., $125/ten sessions, $80/review, Temple Emanuel, 243 Albany Avenue, Kingston; (914) 474-0930, (212) 824-3300, www. landmarkworldwide.com/when-andwhere/register/search-results?pgid=28.

Situations Wanted

FOSTER HOMES NEEDED FOR KITTENS AND PREGNANT CATS.The WOODSTOCK FERAL CAT PROJECT is a local not for profit organization committed to reducing future feral cat populations through spay/neuter. We often find orphaned kittens who need a loving home until they are old enough to be adopted. Some orphaned kittens are so young that they require bottle feeding. We affectionately call them “bottle babies”. We recently placed three pregnant cats in three wonderful homes. The cats gave birth and when the kittens are weaned (no longer nursing), we will look to find loving homes for the kittens and their mothers. If you are interested in fostering or would like to learn more about fostering, please call (917) 282-2018 or email DRJLPK@AOL.COM. DIANA’S FANCY FLEA MARKET: Nice Items Needed for Next Sale!

DEAR BUSINESSMAN/WOMAN- We at Hardscrabble Flea Market & Swap Meet would like to congratulate you on being picked from over 100 businesses in your field. We believe we can help each other- We have a swap meet every Sunday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at Holy Cow Shopping Center, in addition to a flea market/ garage sale. We find that when business people set up a table w/business cards & flyers or “show how to do” projects it will definitely increase your business (and mine). It’s a great way to introduce your business to new/old customers. And, if you have leftover merchandise you’d like to sell- this would be a perfect way to unload it. Please give John a call for more details- (845)758-1170. Spots are $12$35.

Now a retail store called Not Fade Away, the building was, in a previous life, Joyous Lake, an entertainment space and bar where a lot of Rock’s royalty performed: from Bob Dylan to the Rolling Stones. Its highest and best use would be to bring back Joyous Lake to being a music venue -- an amazing wraparound bar, a historic stage, and two lighting and music control booths with a green room; but the building, which features unique detailing and woodwork, lends itself to many and varied uses, perhaps as an event space. Situated on Woodstock’s main street with the most visibility possible, the space can hold 269 people and there’s an 1100 square foot deck to handle overflow plus there’s a corner lot with parking. Whether it becomes a bar, nightclub, café,an event or retail space, the property retains its history and the new owner will proudly possess a Woodstock landmark. ........................$660,000 *According to MLS statistics to date for offices with 50 or more transactions in 2015.

I was speaking with a friend about â&#x20AC;&#x153;playing the dozensâ&#x20AC;? an African-American custom in which two people go head to head in a competition of comedic trash talk. They take turns insulting one another, usually their â&#x20AC;&#x153;mama,â&#x20AC;? or other family member(s) until one of them has no comeback. My friend said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so fat, her blood type is Ragu.â&#x20AC;? I guess I won with, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your mama is so classless she could be a Marxist utopia,â&#x20AC;? because my friend simply shook his head, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get itâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? and walked away.

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN. (Never known to fail.) Oh, most faithful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God. Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh Star of the Sea, help me and show me, herein you are my mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. There are none that can withstand your power. Oh, show me herein you are my mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (3x).

Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can attain my goal. You who gave me the divine gift to forgive and forget all evil against me and that in all instances in my life you are with me, I want in this short prayer to thank-you for all things as you confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank-you for your mercy towards me and mine. The person must say this prayer 3 consecutive days. After 3 days, the request will be granted. This prayer must be published after the favor is granted.
