U

ltra-happening New York deejay Jonathan Toubin’s first Soul Clap at BSP in Kingston was a significant event for both the act and the venue. Toubin, at that time, was famously lucky to be alive after suffering a bizarre and nearly fatal car accident while lying in bed in a Portland hotel. Yes, lying in bed: A taxi driver in diabetic shock smashed her cab through the wall of Toubin’s room, pinning him against a wall, deafening him and nearly killing him in myriad ways. A grueling convalescence and rehab and two hearing aids later, Toubin defied his doctors’ prognoses and brought his legendary vinyl-fueled parties back to the clubs. His show at BSP was among his very first post-recovery appearances. It was also a landmark night for BSP: a packed house and a powerful proof-ofconcept that that kind of club could work in this kind of place. Toubin’s subsequent appearances in Kingston have been no less successful, achieving a gaudy, multifaceted variety-show atmosphere featuring bands, contests and endless dancing under the direction of a deejay who is an undisputed

master of soul and vinyl curation. This time around, Toubin is joined by highly simpatico garage-soul band Mighty Fine. “In this band, New York and New Orleans meet at the crossroads and no one moves an inch,” says Mighty Fine singer Steve Myers. The frenetic, abrasive clave groove of “Fake Plastic Party,” the first track from the group’s debut fulllength Get up to Get Down, suggests that New York and Detroit might be a more accurate description of the geographic standoff. Track after track, Mighty Fine sounds noisy, brash and in touch with the demonic essences of rock ‘n’ roll. Soul Clap with deejay Jonathan Toubin and Mighty Fine rev it up again at BSP Kingston on Saturday, February 1. There will be a dance-off at midnight with a $150 cash prize, courtesy of Jack’s Rhythms and Rhino Records in New Paltz. Tickets cost $8 in advance and $10 on the day of the show. BSP Lounge is located at 323 Wall Street in Kingston. For more information, call (845) 481-5158 or visit www.bspkingston.com. – John Burdick

Vocal Arts Program, won the Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo: one of three Grammies awarded to Winter Morning Walks, the collaboration between Upshaw and jazz composer Maria Schneider. The album also won for Best Contemporary Classical Composition and Best Engineered Album, Classical, and also was cited as one of the projects by David Frost, who won the Grammy for Producer of the Year, Classical. Upshaw, a longtime fan of Schneider’s music, approached Schneider about the possibility of writing a composition for her. Their first collaborative piece, The Carlos Drummond de Andrade Stories, based on the works of Brazilian poet Carlos Drummond de Andrade, was commissioned by the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and premiered in 2008. Winter Morning Walks, a song cycle based on the work of Pulitzer Prizewinning US poet laureate Ted Kooser, was commissioned by the Ojai Festival and the Australian Chamber Orchestra and features three members of Schneider’s band. The album, which includes both song cycles, was funded and produced through ArtistShare in 2013. Upshaw’s acclaimed performances on the opera stage comprise the great Mozart roles (Pamina, Ilia, Susanna, Despina) as well as modern works by Stravinsky, Poulenc and Messiaen. From Salzburg, Paris and Glyndebourne to the Metropolitan Opera, where she began her career in 1984 and has since made nearly 300 appearances, Upshaw has also championed numerous new works created for her, including The Great Gatsby by John Harbison; the Grawemeyer Awardwinning opera L’Amour de Loin and oratorio La Passion de Simone by Kaija Saariaho; John Adams’s Nativity oratorio El Niño; and Osvaldo Golijov’s chamber opera Ainadamar and song cycle Ayre. A five-time Grammy Award-winner, Upshaw is featured on more than 50 recordings, including the million-selling Symphony No. 3 by Henryk Gorecki. Her discography also includes fulllength opera recordings of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro; Messiaen’s St. Francois d’Assise; Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress; John Adams’s El Niño; two volumes of Canteloube’s Songs of the Auvergne and a dozen recital recordings. Her most recent release on Deutsche Grammophon is Three Songs for Soprano and Orchestra, the third in a series of acclaimed recordings of Osvaldo Golijov’s music.

The passing of folk music icon & Hudson River champion Pete Seeger

W

e’ve lost our Pete. Though he truly belonged to the world, he lived so visibly, so humbly and accessibly among us here in the Hudson Valley for so long, and did so much to make the river and its environs healthier and more habitable, that we came to think of him as “ours.” We all knew that it had to happen sooner or later, but it still comes as a shock. Energetic and indestructible as he always seemed, folksinger/activist Pete Seeger was 94, after all; he needed two canes to march with the Occupy Wall Street folks in 2011, and his reedy tenor singing voice was diminished a long time ago. That in itself didn’t matter much; he had already trained his audiences better than any other musician on Earth ever could to do most of the singing for him. At around 9:30 p.m. on Monday, January 27, 2013, at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Pete lay down that trusty long-necked banjo and shuffled off this mortal coil at last. Those of us who grew up on his music and his message, watched CBS censor his performance of “Waist-Deep in the Big Muddy” from the Smother Brothers Comedy Hour at the height of the Vietnam War, heard him play innumerable times at the Great Hudson River Revival, on college campuses and countless fundraisers for schools and community groups or listened to our kids’ excited tales about Pete’s classroom visits or their sails on the Clearwater – we’ll just never be quite the same, knowing that there will be no more Pete Seeger concerts, except of the tribute variety. But at least we can console ourselves that there will plenty of those in the months to come, and opportunities to convene with other fans, to mourn and reminisce and sing along. The first of these tribute events will take place at the Falcon in Marlboro, which will host a concert to celebrate the life and legacy of Pete Seeger on Saturday, February 22. Jay Ungar and Molly Mason will definitely be there, and the “many, many more” advertised are likely to comprise a long list indeed of acoustic music luminaries. And you may rest assured that, when somebody steps up to the mic to lead a chorus of “Well May the World Go” or “Old Devil Time” – two of the greatest songs ever written on the subject of mortality, both of them by Pete – there won’t be a dry eye in the house. There’s nothing wrong with a little well-earned mourning; but if your spirits need a lift, or you feel inspired to “do something” in the way that this great model of citizen activism always exemplified, here are a few suggestions for starters: Make a donation to the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater organization (www. clearwater.org) in Pete’s memory. Sing something out loud next time you get together with friends. Or plan an outing next summer to some riverfront park like Kingston Point Beach. You can even take a dip in the Hudson nowadays without worrying about getting cancer from it. Thanks for that, Pete – and for everything else. We’ll never forget you. – Frances Marion Platt Pete Seeger tribute concert, Saturday, February 22, time t/b/a, by donation, the Falcon, 1348 Route 9W, Marlboro; (845) 236-7970, www.liveatthefalcon.com.

Upshaw holds honorary doctorate degrees from Yale, the Manhattan School of Music, the Juilliard School, Allegheny College and Illinois Wesleyan University.

She began her career as a 1984 winner of the Young Concert Artists Auditions and the 1985 Walter W. Naumburg Competition, and was a member of

Passion play Bardavon to host guitar heavyweights Sharon Isbin, Stanley Jordan & Romero Lubambo

I

n my Bach-loving childhood home, the names of the great nonSegovian classical guitarists were oft-heard and well-known: Julian Bream, Christopher Parkening, John Williams (not the composer) and – later, but by no means lesser – the great Sharon Isbin. The three-time Grammy-winner and founder of the Guitar Department at the Juilliard School of Music made her name with a recording of Bach’s complete lute suites. Her next few recordings took her through that other hallowed ground for nylon-string guitarists, Spanish and Latin American composers such as Rodrigo and Jobim. Her first attempts at crossing over or, at any rate, departing from repertoire, came early: 1997’s Journey to the Amazon, a collaboration with jazz/New Age saxophonist Paul Winter and percussionist/composer Thiago de Mello. Now Isbin headlines the staunchly nonpurist Guitar Passions, a tour of multi-

genre guitar virtuosity co-headlined by jazz and fusion master Stanley Jordan and Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo. Jordan is most known for the novelty of the technique that he rode to his initial fame: a two-hand-tapping, guitar-as-keyboard approach that, in its subtlety and capacity for counterpoint, made the ilk of Eddie look like cave painters. Like Bobby McFerrin, with whom Jordan has toured extensively, the freakish novelty of his approach unfairly colored the assessment of his work; but he has long since ridden that out. 2011’s release Friends is an excellent session by any standard, and it remains boggling how much music this one player accounts for.

Bach’s Cantata No. 106 this Sunday in West Park Under the direction of Edward Lundergan, Kairos: A Consort of Singers will present J. S.

The text consists of different Bible  verses of the Old and New Testament, as well as individual verses of  chorales by Martin Luther  and  Adam Reusner, all of which underscore the themes of finiteness and dying. The work is unusually scored for two flutes (or recorders), two cellos and continuo. The Holy Cross Monastery is located at 1615 Broadway (Route 9W) in West Park. The service is open to the public with a $10 suggested donation, all of which will be used to fund the Bach Cantata Series and ensure future performances.

1969

Maybe this is Scorsese’s answer to Fellini Satyricon. There’s something to be said for using the decadence of Rome under the Nero regime as a metaphor for the excesses of Wall Street; but if that was Scorsese’s intent, he got nowhere near the target.

Scorsese Satyricon The Wolf of Wall Street is a harsh, unrewarding wallow in cinematic excess

oes the life of a film critic strike you as cushy, even glamorous? Abate thine envy, prithee. Granted, there are far worse ways to make a buck than sitting in a movie theatre for a couple of hours each week. But consider this: When you decide, half an hour into a flick that turns out to be awful, that you can’t take any more of it, you’re perfectly free to get up and leave. Pity the poor reviewer, who must stick it out to the bitter end or not get paid. Less than ten minutes into Martin Scorsese’s latest opus, The Wolf of Wall Street, I was more than ready to leave. But there were 169 minutes left to go, and they were every bit as excruciating as the opening sequence promised. Never in all my moviegoing days have I squirmed in my theatre seat as much, or looked at my watch so many times. I urge you, for your own good, to avoid subjecting yourself to this same ordeal. You’ve probably heard by now that one of The Wolf of Wall Street’s dubious distinctions is the fact that it holds the world record for number of uses (500+) of

The sense of discontinuity that this engenders cannot be excused due to inexperience or low budget; the NYUtrained Scorsese must be trying to make a vague aesthetic point here, but it tends to exacerbate the movie’s general payload of high-decibel, free-floating hostility. What was Scorsese thinking? Or was he thinking at all? Did he – like some of his characters – just want to see how much he could get away with, like a teenage boy who tests adults’ boundaries by being deliberately outrageous at every opportunity? That sort of behavior quickly wears thin, even in a character like Belfort who commands a formidable gift of gab and enough glib charm to persuade the unwary that the sun rises in the west. Everything in this movie is exaggerated,

Golden gloves Auction in Freehold this Sunday features Floyd Patterson awards & memorabilia

T

he Carlsen Gallery in Freehold will hold its annual Midwinter Auction on Sunday, February 2 at 10:30 a.m. An auction preview will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, January 30 and 31 and February 1 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, February 2 from 8 until 10:30 a.m., when the sale commences. Along with a variety of estate jewelry, Oriental carpets, furniture and decorative accessories from several homes and collections, including a Hudson riverside Federal home in Rensselaer and property from a collector in Delmar and in Laconia, New Hampshire, the auction will include items from the estate of Floyd Patterson, Olympic gold medalist, former heavyweight boxing champion of the world and longtime resident of New Paltz. Patterson died in May of 2006 at the age of 71, following complications of prostate cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. In a New York Times obituary, Patterson was memorialized as “a good guy in the bad world of boxing.” Sports columnist Red Smith called him “the man of peace who loves to fight.” He’s remembered fondly in New Paltz by those who knew him as a neighbor who was generous with the community. Patterson had a reputation for championing causes that benefited underprivileged youth, as befit his own origins and his initial arrival in the Hudson Valley as a student at the Wiltwyck School in Esopus – a kind of reform school for emotionally disturbed boys. He arrived there not knowing how to read or write, and unwilling to talk to people. But his new teachers taught him to read, and encouraged him to take up boxing. Patterson developed a unique style, holding his gloves high in front of his face and springing forward with unexpected hooks, catching many opponents off-guard. In the 1952 Helsinki Olympics, he won the middleweight gold medal with five knockouts in five bouts. Four years later, then a professional, he knocked out Archie Moore on November 30, 1956, and the 21-year-old Patterson became the youngest world heavyweight champion in history.

Sports columnist Red Smith called Floyd Patterson “the man of peace who loves to fight”

seemingly for exaggeration’s sake. Though some fine actors are employed, the performances are overblown to a scale more suited to the performance of an opera in some gigantic arena where the bleacher seats are a quarter-mile away from the stage than they are to a moviehouse screen. The only explanation that makes any sense to me is that the director must have taken to rewatching the films of Federico Fellini of late, and comparing his own cinematic legacy to that of the late Italian master. Perhaps The Wolf of Wall Street, in which Belfort’s company’s offices are routinely visited by the likes of nude marching bands and roller-skating chimpanzees, is Scorsese’s answer to that supremely bizarre, over-the-top masterpiece Fellini Satyricon. There’s something to be said for using the

corruption and decadence of Rome under the Nero regime as a metaphor for the excesses of Wall Street and the banking industry in recent decades; but if that was Scorsese’s intent, he got nowhere near the target. Fellini’s movie is hallucinatory art. Scorsese’s is just a lot of noise, both visual and auditory, romanticizing horrible people. And what was the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences thinking, nominating The Wolf of Wall Street for a Best Picture Oscar? Someone there must have confused it with another, vastly superior film about scam artists currently in theatres. Do yourself a favor: Just avoid this movie. Otherwise you’ll end up like me, lamenting those ill-spent three hours of my life that I will never get back. – Frances Marion Platt

FDR Library to screen Red Tails In commemoration of Black History Month, the Pare Lorentz Center at the FDR Presidential Library in Hyde Park will host a film screening of Red Tails (2012), the acclaimed George Lucas production about the World War II African-American aviators known as the Tuskegee Airmen, on Thursday, February 6 at 7 p.m. Prior to the screening, Roosevelt Library education specialist Jeffrey Urbin will provide historical context related to the Tuskegee Airmen and the Roosevelt Administration. The film chronicles the story of the black pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program during World War II, who are courageously waging two wars at once: one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home. Mistakenly deemed inferior and assigned only second-rate planes and missions,

the pilots of Tuskegee have mastered the skies with ease but have not been granted the opportunity to spread their wings. But as the war in Europe continues to take its dire toll on Allied forces, Pentagon brass has no recourse but to reconsider these underutilized pilots for combat duty. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen are finally assigned to take to the skies in a heroic endeavor to combat the enemy – and the discrimination that has kept them down for so long. The program will be held in the Henry A. Wallace Center at the FDR Presidential Library and Home. The event is free and open to the public. The FDR Presidential Library and Home is located at 4079 Albany Post Road in Hyde Park. For more information, call (800) 337-8474, (845) 486-7745 or visit www.fdrlibrary.marist.edu.

His reign lasted almost five years, during which he won the world heavyweight championship twice. When he recaptured the title in 1960 after a brief loss, it marked the first time that a boxer had ever made a successful comeback for the world heavyweight title. After Patterson retired in 1972, he became a respected spokesman for his sport. He was a member of the New York State Athletic Commission and later its chairman, leading a successful campaign to have the state mandate thumbless gloves that reduce eye injuries. Patterson was voted into the US Olympic Committee Hall of Fame in 1987 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1991. All of the items to be available in the auction are viewable online at the Carlsen Gallery’s website, www.carlsengallery.com. Items from Patterson’s estate include a pair of Golden Gloves autographed by Joe Frazier, estimated to sell from $200 to $400 (item #204); a collection of 11 photographs of Patterson with Archie Moore, Jimmy Ellis and Cassius Clay, estimated at $100 to $300 (item #313); a bronze Bob Hope Sports Award to Patterson from 1960, estimated at $300 to $500 (item #90); and a Rocky Marciano Trophy award to Patterson in 1978, estimated at $500 to $1,500 (item #94), along with other various memorabilia, trophies and awards. The Carlsen Gallery is accessible from Exit 21 off the Thruway. A fully illustrated catalogue is available online. For those who cannot make it to the gallery, absentee, telephone and Internet bidding are also accepted in advance of the sale, although these arrangements must be made in advance. A 15 percent buyer’s premium is charged on all purchases. – Sharyn Flanagan Midwinter Auction, Sunday, February 2, 10:30 a.m., 9931 State Route 32, Freehold; (518) 634-2466, info@carlsengallery.com, www.carlsengallery.com.

The traditional Burns Supper is a highly structured affair involving ritual speeches, recitations, bagpipe and other music, plenty of toasts involving whiskey and… that monument to Scots frugality, that dreaded culinary concoction that uses up all the parts of a sheep that we don’t really want to think about without imbibing plenty of single malt first, the haggis. Although folks in Scotland like to twit American tourists with tales of the haggis as a small animal with legs shorter on one side than the other so that it doesn’t fall off the Highland mountainsides (perhaps a relative of our native Rocky Mountain jackalope), the real thing is a savory pudding made of oatmeal, suet, minced mutton offal, onion and seasonings, boiled to perfection inside a sheep’s stomach. The haggis is allegedly more delicious than its description, but its dubious ingredients have undoubtedly made many a would-be Burns Nicht celebrant shrink back from the duty of actually tasting one. To accommodate us haggis wusses, the Rhinecliff therefore prepares a menu that consists of traditional Scottish dishes like cock-a-leekie soup, “neeps and tatties” (turnips and potatoes mashed

The ceremonies will still include the requisite Parade or Piping-in of the Haggis, along with the traditional Selkirk Grace, the Toast of the Lassies and the Lassies’ Response for a bit of good-natured battle-of-the-sexes humor. Master piper Jeremy Freeman will play the bagpipes; storyteller Jonathan Kruk will relate some incidents from the life of Burns; swordsman Neil Roberts will buckle some swash. Participants are encouraged to bring songs, poems and stories by, about and in the spirit of the Bard of Ayrshire. And at the end, everybody joins in singing Auld Lang Syne, in a context where it makes a lot more sense than on New Year’s Eve.

CIA launches on-campus microbrewery, ramps up beer education program

raft breweries in the US have increased from one in 1975 to well over 2,000 today, so savvy consumers are clearly looking for quality beers these days. While before, a restaurant could rely on a good wine program to keep patrons happy, now a menu of brews beyond Budweiser seems to be essential. Garrett Oliver, brewmaster for the Brooklyn Brewery, told Food and Wine magazine in “The Crimes against Beer,” “Despite what’s happening at the high end of restaurants and bars, beer is the only food or drink where if you go to a restaurant, the average customer knows more about the beer than the house, even if they have only ten beers on the list. That’s a disaster. Cooking schools are only just starting to learn that they can’t send people out into the world with only three hours of beer training after one month on wine.” Clearly people know more about different varieties of beer now, and want to try them when they go out, and the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) is getting on the bandwagon. Next year its Hyde Park campus will have its own brewery, serving beer to of-age students and visitors. The CIA plans to integrate beer education into the curriculum for degree students who will staff the brewery as part of their training. The 25-year-old Brooklyn Brewery will be its partner. The company was founded by Steve Hindy and Tom Potter to revitalize the City’s beer, which had faded away after a heyday as one of the country’s biggest brewing cities, with 48 breweries in 1898. Light pilsners brewed by beer giants in the Midwest killed them. Hindy and Potter aimed to bring good beer-brewing back to Brooklyn, and they did. Currently the company’s beers are distributed by Phoenix/Beehive, which also handles Guinness, Heineken and Miller. The Brooklyn Brewery hired Oliver as its brewmaster in 1994, and he developed several new ales and beers for the company. He also oversaw production at its brewing operation in Utica, where many of its beers are bottled (it is currently undergoing a major expansion of its Brooklyn plant). Oliver, a well-known expert on traditional beer styles and beer/food pairings, co-authored The Good Beer Book (Putnam/Berkley, 1997), wrote The Brewmaster’s Table (Ecco, 2003) and was editor-in-chief of The

A wide variety of items will be available this year, including sweet summer berries, hardy vegetables like asparagus and horseradish and a wonderful assortment of evergreen seedlings, including tenpacks of deer-resistant bare-root seedlings of Colorado blue, Norway and white spruce. In addition, the Hudson Valley Seed Library will make available over 30 varieties of seeds for culinary herbs, flowers and an assortment of edible ornamental varieties.

He has a history of hosting beer-tastings and dinners at fine eateries and acclaimed cooking schools, including the CIA, and has won many national and international awards for the beers that he has created. Oliver will have a regular presence at the CIA’s Hyde Park campus in the development of curriculum for the new beer program. The campus brewery will be housed in a new student union building that is being built right now. With the feel of an old Brooklyn warehouse, the brewery will have glass walls that permit viewing of a seven-barrel brewing system. The taps should be flowing by the summer of 2015, with four signature beers that will also be sold in the CIA’s restaurants. It will be used as a research-and-development classroom for students and faculty experimentation, “to create and test new beer flavors,” says chef Waldy Malouf, the CIA’s senior director of special projects. The curriculum will teach junior and senior degree students in the Advanced Wine, Beverage and Hospitality program. They will learn about beer fermentation and brewing, as well as how to staff and run a small brewery/brewpub. “This partnership is forward-thinking, both in terms of culinary education and college dining,” adds Malouf. The Brooklyn Brewery has a 20-year history of working with the CIA on beer dinners and promotional events. The CIA has been around since 1946, now offering both Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees with majors in Culinary Arts, Baking and Pastry Arts and Culinary Science. We’ve come a long way from the “wine is highbrow/beer is lowbrow” mentality, and the CIA seems to be on board with that. Now it’ll be sending out graduates with expert knowledge of all the elements of the craft of beermaking, which surely will be a benefit to beer-lovers all over. – Jennifer Brizzi Read more about local cuisine and learn about new restaurants on Ulster Publishing’s DineHudsonValley.com or HudsonValleyAlmanacWeekly.com.

W

ikipedia is perhaps the ultimate example of the modern conventional wisdom that the Internet, as a source for research, is “a mile wide and an inch deep.” Much as we have grown to rely on it, it’s still all too common to run across a Wikipedia entry that’s obviously biased, riddled with errors or lacking in crucial tidbits of information about the subject. Sometimes the temptation to join the legions who go in and tinker with the entries is just too powerful to resist, even knowing full well that someone else might go into the very same page an hour later and change it back. And then of course there’s the whole complicated protocol of registering and establishing your credentials as a “Wikipedian,” which militates to some degree against the website’s alleged democratic spirit of information-sharing. If you’re not already enough of a computer geek to understand what’s on all those tabs behind a Wikipedia entry, the learning curve can seem rather intimidating. One of the upshots of this userunfriendly setup is that fewer than 20 percent of Wikipedia editors are women. And that helps explain why entries about great women in various fields are disproportionately scanty. Every so often a group gets together to make an organized effort to rectify this and other imbalances in what Wikipedia covers. Last October, for instance, a couple of female academics from Brown University celebrated Ada Lovelace Day, honoring an eminent English mathematician who died in 1852, by training dozens of faculty members and students in how to add and edit pages to address Wikipedia’s dearth of information on women in the STEM fields.

Cedar Grove nets $500K grant to rebuild Thomas Cole’s studio The studio that painter Thomas Cole built in 1846 – now set for rebuilding, some 31 years since it was taken down in a wrongheaded move in the early 1970s – was a dream come true for the accidental American legend, who married into a Catskill family after converting a local barn into a painting studio that’s still in existence to this day at Cedar Grove, a National Historical Site. It had a then-modern Italianate appearance, with long windows and, eventually, an ivy-covered ancient feel about it. For years follow-

ing the great master’s sudden death in the winter of 1848, with a son on the way and his fame growing as much for his writings and the success of his students as for the renown of his art, other artists would come to the area to rent that studio (along with his older one), or to make paintings and sketches of his home and its scenic, view-rich grounds. A $500,000 grant to Cedar Grove was announced this month as part of the state’s 2014 rural economic development package, augmenting an ongoing fundraising campaign and allowing the historical site’s executive director, Betsy Jacks, to announce a groundbreaking this June, with completion of the reconstruction the following spring. More importantly, from a regional arts perspective, was the means by which Jacks has chosen to actualize this historian and preservationist’s dream, given new fire six years ago when the foundations of Cole’s “New Studio” were found on location: She’s working with a host of eminent architects, builders, designers and suppliers to see this dream to fruition.

Building awareness “Architectural Perspectives” extravaganza at Cornell Street Studios in Kingston

“A

Featuring “the perspectives of local architects and artists in a group art show, including photographs, drawings, renderings, models and other architectural-themed media,” the opening night will start with a number of presentations by the likes of RUPCO, the regional housing nonprofit set to talk about its new Lace Curtain Factory; historian William Rhoads addressing Kingston’s architectural history; and a presentation on Calvert Vaux’s work in the Hudson Valley. And if that’s not enough, look for the concert of architecturally inspired music by David Temple. “About three years ago, my Dad had asked me to plan an all-architecture-themed show. It was something that I kept in my mind, but didn’t want to plan until I was ready,” Darmstadt said of her new extravaganza’s genesis. “It was about a year ago, right after our ‘We Love Kingston’ event in collaboration with David Temple, that I decided that it would be in February, and I approached Temple and asked if his classical music would work with the theme and he said it certainly does!

The artworks are created with a subtractive process: The paper is held over the open flame of a torch and the soot is allowed to collect on the surface. Gonyea then erases the negative space, revealing the image. The result is an ethereal rendering highlighted by faint wisps and smoky edges literally painted in fire.

From the Darmstadts’ perspective, it’s about bringing long-held dreams back to life and kicking things up a notch. “Every show that we host, my Dad and I are always trying to enhance our place in some sort of way,” she said of the huge metal building put up on Cornell Street for business purposes, but now morphed into something of a Midtown cultural center. “We have big dreams for the building, including an all-glass elevator and rooftop lounge. We want the space to keep changing and draw an ongoing interest…My father has a love for architecture and history; he’s a big Frank Lloyd Wright and Calvert Vaux fan. This has certainly rubbed off on me, and we often take drives in the surrounding areas and admire all different types of buildings.

T

he recent death of Pete Seeger is a reminder that few indeed are left of the generation who can remember the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) and how divisive an issue that was here in the US – which, along with France and Britain, had opted out of taking sides in the conflict. During the Great Depression, with tens of millions of Americans out of work for long stretches of time, leftist ideologies found many sympathetic ears, and to call oneself a communist or a socialist did not yet incur the degree of social stigma that later developed during the McCarthy Era. Still, many Americans in the 1930s supported general Francisco Franco’s campaign to oust Spain’s democratically elected socialist government – at least, until Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler sent in a combined 80,000 troops to turn the tide of battle and the victorious Franco went on to prove himself a fullblown fascist dictator. For many young intellectuals of that era, the cause of the Spanish Loyalists (also

known as Republicans) was a clarion call to activism. Of the approximately 2,800 American volunteers who fought under the banner of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, only two were still living at last report, aged 97 and 98 respectively. Among those who perished in the war was a gifted young artist from the Town of Lloyd in Ulster County named Edward Deyo Jacobs, known to his comrades as Deyo. He became radicalized while studying at the Art Students League in New York City, where his instructors included Thomas Hart Benton, John Sloan, George Grosz and Harry

Sternberg; Jackson Pollock was a friend and fellow student. After school, Jacobs worked briefly with the Works Progress Administration’s public art projects and then, unable to find steady employment, rode the rails like a hobo to visit the family of his best friend, Douglas Taylor, in Utah. He joined the Communist Party in 1935 and signed up to fight in the International Brigades at the end of 1936. Taylor joined him about six months later. The Loyalists put Jacobs’ artistic talents and training to work, assigning him to illustrate pamphlets and posters, and later

to scout out the terrain and make maps; but he also fought in the trenches. Having survived the bloody Battle of Jarama, he was among the many lost in the disastrous rout from Teruel in March of 1938, shortly before the end of the war. He was listed as Missing in Action, and it took many years before his family in Highland received an account of his death. Not fully recuperated from a recent ankle fracture, Jacobs had been unable to flee the advancing Nationalist troops; Taylor stayed with him, and both were apparently captured and summarily executed. By then the Nationalists, smelling victory in the air, were taking no prisoners. After a long career with the US Information Agency, Deyo Jacobs’ younger brother John Kedzie Jacobs, now 95, moved back to the old family homestead on South Street in the rural Clintondale neighborhood; he lives there still with his wife Katia. Decades after the Spanish Civil War, following the death of their parents, John Jacobs unearthed a trove of letters to and from his brother. He dedicated many years to reading and organizing them, trying to contact other people who had known him and collecting surviving examples of Deyo’s artworks. The result of this labor of love is a poignant and enlightening volume titled The Stranger in the Attic: Finding a Lost Brother in His Letters Home, selfpublished this winter, 75 years after Deyo Jacobs’ passing. It’s a fascinating window into the zeitgeist of the 1930s, the Spanish Civil War, the New York City art scene of the time and the dynamics of a rural Ulster County family whose members were all gifted but frequently at odds. Through John Jacobs’ eyes, we see his brother transformed from an unsympathetic, self-centered, socially abrasive, possibly somewhat autistic boy to a brilliant young man with passionate commitments to his art, his friends and his political ideals – perhaps even a hero. John Kedzie Jacobs will read from The Stranger in the Attic and talk about his brother and his writing process at Inquiring Minds Bookstore in New Paltz on Friday, February 7 at 7 p.m. Admission is free.

Peerless Prose Francine Prose reads from new novel on Wednesday at Vassar

I

f you’re born with the last name Prose, what else can you do with your life but aspire to become a great author? Amazingly, Francine Prose has managed to do that, achieving the rare feat of generating novels, short stories and nonfiction that simultaneously linger on the best-seller list and win the respect of her peers and critics as serious works of modern literature. Her novel A Changed Man won the 2005 Dayton Literary Peace Prize and her satire Blue Angel was a finalist for the 2000 National Book Award. The Glorious Ones (1974) was adapted into a musical by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, Tony-winners for Ragtime, and ran at Lincoln Center in 2007; Household Saints (1981) became a 1993 film directed by Nancy Savoca and starring Tracey Ullman. More recently, her nonfiction works Anne Frank: The Book, the Life, the Afterlife and Reading like a Writer have earned Prose great acclaim. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Prose fought for international free expression as president of the PEN American Center for two consecutive terms. Among her numerous grants and honors are a Guggenheim and a Fulbright scholarship, and she has been a directors’ fellow at the Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library. Currently a visiting professor of Literature at Bard College, the author can be heard by the general public at another eminent mid-Hudson institution of higher learning on Wednesday, February 5, when she gives a reading from her forthcoming novel Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932 at Vassar College. Prose is serving as Vassar’s writer-in-residence for the spring 2014 semester. Due to be published by Harper in April, Lovers at the Chameleon Club has been lauded by Kirkus Reviews as “brilliant and dazzling…. a tour de force of character, point of view and especially atmosphere.”

Programming the Universe author Seth Lloyd speaks at EMPAC The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy will host “In Other Words,” a lecture series about dialogue that brings together artists who deliver lecture/performances with thinkers who build connections. The series begins at EMPAC on Wednesday, February 5 at 7 p.m. with a lecture by Seth Lloyd, Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor of Mechanical Engineering. He will lecture on his controversial book Programming the Universe. In the traditional scientific account, the

universe is composed of matter and energy. According to Lloyd, there is another key ingredient: information. Every atom and elementary particle carries with it bits of information, he posits, and when two atoms collide, those bits flip and the universe computes. By understanding how and why the universe computes, we gain insight into the nature of reality itself. Following Lloyd’s presentation, there will be a panel discussion on quantum computing with Rensselaer professors James A. Hendler and Christopher D. Carothers. The event is presented in conjunction with Clement Layes’s lecture/ performance Allege on February 1. EMPAC is located at 110 Eighth Street in Troy.

NIGHT SKY

Is there no time to lose? A more accurate way to perceive time

P

hysicists increasingly doubt that time has any independent existence. Let’s look at this afresh. We could start with a paradox known as “the Arrow,” first described 2,500 years ago by the philosopher Zeno of Elea. Beginning logically with the premise that nothing can be in two places at once, he reasoned that an arrow is only in one specific location at every moment of its trajectory. Logically, then, motion per se is not what is really occurring; rather, it is a series of separate events. This may be a first indication that the forward motion of time – of which the movement of the arrow is an embodiment – is not a feature of the external world, but a projection of something within us, as we tie together things that we are observing. Philosophers, who have long questioned the reality of time, argue that the past exists only as ideas in the mind, which themselves are neuroelectrical events occurring strictly in the present moment. The future is similarly nothing more than a mental construct, an anticipation, a grouping of thoughts. Because thinking itself occurs strictly in the “now,” where is time? But does time exist apart from human concepts of motion and events? Or is it all an “eternal now” that includes our mind’s tendency to think and daydream? Physicists, for their part, find that all working models for reality – from Newton’s laws and Einstein’s field equations through quantum mechanics – have no need for time. They are all time-symmetrical. Time is a concept looking for a function – except when we’re speaking about a change, as in acceleration. But change is not the same thing as time. Scientifically, time appears to be indispensable in just one area: thermodynamics, whose second law has no meaning at all without the passage of time. Thermodynamics’ second law describes entropy (the process of going from greater to lesser structure, like the bottom of your clothes closet). Consider a glass containing club soda and ice cubes. At first, there is definite structure. Ice is separate from the liquid, and so are the bubbles. But return later and the ice has melted, the soda has gone flat and the contents of the glass have merged into a structureless oneness. Barring evaporation, no further change will occur. This evolution away from structure and activity toward sameness, randomness and inertia is entropy. In classical science, entropy does not make sense without a directionality of time, because it is a non-reversible mechanism. In fact, entropy defines the arrow of time. Without entropy, time need not exist at all. But many physicists question this “conventional wisdom” regarding entropy. Instead of the act of structure-loss and disorganization representing a concrete directionality to time, it can just as well be seen as a demonstration of random action. Things move. Molecules move. They do so in the here-and-now. Their motions are haphazard. Before long, an observer will notice the dissipation of the previous organization. Why should they then assign arrows to it? Shouldn’t we regard such random entropy as an example of the non-essentiality or unreality of time, rather than the other way around? Seen this way, the resultant entropy or loss of structure is only a loss in our own minds’ way of perceiving patterns and order. And boom! There goes science’s final need for time as an actual entity. Time’s reality or lack thereof is certainly an ancient debate, whose actual answer may be mind-bendingly more complex, because there may be many planes of physical reality. Time may appear to operate on some levels (for example, biological life) but be nonexistent or irrelevant on others (for example, the quantum realm of the tiny). But the bottom line is always “appear.” Now back to Zeno’s arrow. A camera follows the arrow’s trajectory from the archer’s

Dion Ogust | Almanac Weekly bow towards the target. Suddenly, the projector stops on a single frame of a stilled arrow. You stare at the image of an arrow in mid-flight – something that you obviously could not do at a real tournament. The pause in the film enables you to know the position of the arrow with great accuracy: It’s just beyond the grandstand, 20 feet above the ground. But you have lost all information about its momentum. It is going nowhere; its velocity is zero. Its path, its trajectory, has become uncertain. To measure the position precisely, at any given instant, is to lock in on one static frame – to put the movie on “pause,” so to speak. Conversely, as soon as you observe momentum, you can’t isolate a frame, because momentum is the summation of many frames. You can’t know one and the other with complete accuracy. Sharpness in one parameter induces blurriness in the other. There is uncertainty as you home in, whether on motion or position. Werner Heisenberg, in 1927, wrote that such uncertainty in quantum theory practice was not due to some technological insufficiency. He said that uncertainty is actually built into the fabric of reality. In our 2009 book Biocentrism, medical doctor Bob Lanza and I explained it this way: Time is the inner form of animal sense that animates events – the still frames – of the spatial world. The mind animates the world like the motor and gears of a projector. Each weaves a series of still pictures – a series of spatial states – into an order, into life’s “current.” Remember that everything you perceive (even this page) is actively and repeatedly being reconstructed inside your head. It’s happening to you right now. Your eyes cannot see through the wall of the cranium; all visual experience is an organized whirl of information occurring solely within your brain. If your mind could stop its “motor” for a moment, you’d get a freeze-frame, just as the movie projector isolated the arrow in one position with no momentum. In fact, time can be defined as the inner summation of spatial states; the same thing measured with our scientific instruments is called momentum. Space can be defined as position, as locked in a single frame. Thus, movement through space is an oxymoron. Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle has its root here, showing that time is simply not a feature of the external spatial world. The metaphor of a strobe light might be helpful, as fast flashes isolate snapshots of rapidly moving things, like dancers in a disco. A dip, a split, a snap become still poses. Motion is suspended. One still follows another still. In quantum mechanics, “position” is like a strobe snapshot. Momentum is the life-created summation of many frames. The weaving together of these frames occurs in the mind. Two-and-a-half-thousand years later, Zeno’s arrow paradox finally makes sense. So did Werner Heisenberg when he said, “A path comes into existence only when you observe it.” There is neither time nor motion without an observer. The demotion of time from an actual reality to a mere subjective experience or social convention is a major step in comprehending the cosmos. True, in the mechanistic universe as described by Newton, Einstein and Darwin, time is spoken of as a kind of ledger in which events are recorded: a forward-moving continuum, flowing always into the future, accumulating. This is because human beings are hardwired to think linearly. It’s essential in the day-to-day keeping of one’s appointments and the watering of plants. But in the end, even Einstein admitted, “People like us…know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” So an irreversible, on-flowing continuum of events is a fantasy. Space and time are tools of animal perception – period. We carry them around with us like turtles with shells. There simply is no self-existing matrix out there in which physical events occur independent of life. – Bob Berman Want to know more?

GARDENER’S NOTEBOOK

Shear delight Alyssum can winter over in a pot, if you cut it back at summer’s end

A

lyssum’s problem may be that it’s too easy to grow. Sprinkle some alyssum seeds on the ground or plug in some transplants, water and forget about them. Soon you have a mound of tiny white flowers. That also might be alyssum’s problem: no traffic-stopping colors or humongous or oddshaped blossoms. But why think about alyssum (Lobularia maritima) this time of year? Because my alyssum just opened the first of its tiny blossoms. Let’s backtrack to last spring. As usual, I was going to sprinkle alyssum seeds on the ground to fill in some areas along the edge of a flowerbed where, in all honesty, the plants would probably go unnoticed. Then I realized how much I actually like alyssum if I stop to look at it. And I especially love the blossoms’ honeylike aroma. So instead of sowing seeds in the ground, I sowed them in a pot. And I placed said pot on the low wall along the walkway leading to my front door. All summer and well into autumn, I’d stop and admire the potted mound of tiny white blossoms and bend down to drink in their aroma. (Angels’ trumpets, Maid of Orleans jasmine, rose geranium and mint were among other potted olfactory delights sharing that low wall.) Alyssum is a cold-hardy annual or shortlived perennial. Winters here are too cold for it to survive outdoors; but, rather than be sacrificed to winter’s fury, the potted plant found a new home indoors near a sunny window. The plant – native to beaches and fields of the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, the Azores and France’s Atlantic coast – tolerates heat, drought and some shade. Perhaps my indoor plant could be coaxed to flower through winter. Annual plants expend a lot of energy flowering nonstop through summer. They need periodic rests. My alyssum was pretty much spent by the time I brought it indoors. I should have sheared it back in late August, which would have stimulated and allowed some time for new growth while the growing was good. Because I neglected to do this, not having planned on bringing the plant indoors, it just sat in a state of suspended animation through late fall and early winter. “Desperate times call for desperate measures.” Okay, the times weren’t particularly desperate: just short days and cool indoor temperatures. And the measures weren’t that desperate: I sheared back the alyssum about a month ago. And now came the first of many white blossoms – unless the plant decides to show its annual-ness and just peter out.

ciations are positive, some negative. Clay/soil: Although many gardeners bemoan having such soils, most clay soils are fertile. Clay/plants: The organic spray called Surround is nothing more than kaolin clay, which turns out to be very effective at convincing pestiferous insects to go elsewhere. C l a y /p o t s : nice. Sculpted and then fired in a kiln turns even the stickiest, most infertile clay into an object of utility and beauty. Lucky for me, my wife Deb is a potter (www.goldmanceramics.com), so I occasionally reap marital rewards in the form of pots for plants. More recently, ceramic marital rewards went further, with the fabrication of an idea that I had for an automatic potwatering device, which I’m calling a capillitron. Picture an upside-down soda bottle with its bottom end (now up) closed with a removable lid and its top end (now down) tapering to a narrow cone closed off at its end. The whole thing is glazed except for the bottom few inches of tapered cone. The unglazed portion of the capillitron gets pushed into the soil of a potted plant. The capillitron reservoir is filled with water, then covered with the lid to prevent evaporation. As the potting soil dries, it draws moisture through the capillary channels of the unglazed, tapered portion of the capillitron, the water in which is continually replaced with the water within the reservoir. The reservoir portion, up out of the soil, is glazed to cut short any capillary migration of water from there to the outside of the pot where it would evaporate. Within the flowerpot, any portion of potting soil that dries will draw moisture from elsewhere in the pot, eventually leading back to right around the capillitron. Theoretically, then, the entire volume of potting soil remains consistently moist as long as the capillitron reservoir holds water. The capillarity within the potting soil, which moves moisture up, down or sideways as needed, comes from the organic matter in the mix (compost plus peat moss or coir in mine) and – you guessed it – clay in the garden soil that I add to the potting mix. – Lee Reich

H

istory holds few mysteries as intriguing as the ancient earthwork structures – dolmens and menhirs, stone circles, barrows and temples – that dot so much of the Old World, often carefully aligned with the rhythms of the stars and seasons. But we have them in the Americas as well: One of the famous ruins at Tulúm in Mexico, for instance, reliably pinpoints the rising of the planet Venus. Studying these fascinating sites has long been the province of archaeologists, geologists, mystics and crackpots alike. Here in the Northeast, a surprising number of cryptic stone structures also abound, less sizable and spectacular than the famous European and Mesoamerican sites and therefore less familiar. Some are simply dismissed by most passers-by as glacial accidents, Native hunting shelters or prosaic Colonial-era livestock pens or root cellars. More imaginative discoverers have used them to prop up fanciful hypotheses about seafaring Druids or extraterrestrial visitors. In recent years, the New England Antiquities Research Association (NEARA), which professes a commitment to “disciplined research,” has documented many such sites as having demonstrable astronomical alignments. Was observational astronomy, carried out by most cultures worldwide going far back into antiquity, practiced by ancient Native populations in Northeast America? Glenn Kreisberg, writer, researcher and NEARA’s vice president, will discuss the archaeoastronomy and landscape archaeology of our region on Friday, January 31 at the Mohonk Preserve (itself home to quite a few stone “anomalies,” both ancient and more recent). Admission to the lecture, “Lithic Alignments in the Northeast: Natural, Native or Nonsense?” which begins 7 p.m., is free, and children ages 12 and

Groundhog Day festivities The midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox has been celebrated for centuries as the Feast of Lights, Imbolc, Candlemas, Hedgehog Day and Punxsutawney Phil’s Groundhog Day. This year, Groundhog Day falls on Sunday, February 2. If the skies are cloudy when Phil emerges from his burrow, it means that spring weather will arrive early. If sun creates a shadow, he runs back into his burrow, which means longer winter weather. One of my favorite parts of Groundhog Day is telling people that groundhogs are the same animal as woodchucks. You’re welcome. I learned that one from environmental educator Julie Noble in Kingston (thank you, Julie!). Want to take your family’s enjoyment of Groundhog Day to a new level? Here are two events taking place this weekend that might interest you: Bear Mountain Groundhog Day, Sunday, February 2: Meet at the MerryGo-Round. Kid-friendly crafts and games


begin at 11 a.m., and the groundhog appears at 11:30 a.m. Enjoy skating at the rink afterwards, or strolling through the Trailside Zoo. There is a parking fee of $8 per car, or use your Empire Passport sticker. For more information, call (845) 786-2701, extension 242, or visit http:// nysparks.com. Cary Institute Groundhog Day Ecology Walk, Sunday, February 2 at 1 p.m.: Meet at the Main Campus parking lot. During this family-friendly walk, the group will observe weather conditions, look for shadows and learn about winter adaptations. The Cary Institute is located at 2801 Sharon Turnpike in Millbrook.

art gallery and art school, and the fervent admiration of generations of devoted art students. To his personal credit, he leaves a lasting legacy of art, beauty and a sustaining example, having led a life of purpose with unwavering determination and accomplishment. Born on April 8, 1922 in Richmond Hill, New York, Angeloch served in the US Air Corps and Army during World War II where he was a pilot,

studied to be an engineer and ended up in medical school. He studied at The Art Students League of New York from 1946-1951, where he first began painting with Yasuo Kuniyoshi and printmaking with Martin Lewis. He spent the summer of 1947 learning the craft of making woodcuts with Fiske Boyd and it was that summer that Angeloch first studied nature working out of doors. For this reason he recently Continued on Page 13

he latest Onteora Central School District 2011-2012 budget proposal does not include massive layoffs as might be seen in other districts, but does feature the elimination of six teacher positions and reductions to part-time of another five, among job cuts in many sectors. The cuts are seen as a reaction to declining enrollment, but also contribute to a total plan that increases spending by only 0.87 percent, that would translate, based on revenue figures, to a 3.9 percent levy increase. At the Tuesday, March 22 board of education meeting at Woodstock Elementary, school officials presented The Superintendent’s Recommended Budget to trustees that includes an increase in spending to a total of $50,477,497. If the board adopts the budget at its April 5 session, voters will be asked to vote on the budget on May 17. If voters reject the budget proposal, a contingency (or austerity) budget could be put in place that would eliminate $121,785 from the equipment budget line, as mandated by the

he Phoenicia Library was gutted by fire in the early morning hours of Saturday, March 19. Within three days, plans were already in place to open a temporary library on Saturday, March 26, in the building recently vacated by Maverick Family Health, across from the Phoenicia post office. “It’ll be a bare-bones operation,” cautioned library director Tracy Priest. “We’re restoring minimal services, but we want to open our doors. People can return library books and pick up books they’ve ordered from interlibrary loan. From the Mid-Hudson Library System, we’re borrowing a computer and components we need to check books in and out. We’ll open at 10 a.m., and Letter Friends, the early literacy program, will happen at its normal time, 11 a.m. We’re looking eventually to have a small lending library, which may be on the honor system, since all our bar codes were destroyed in the fire.” Writing classes and other programs scheduled for later in the spring will be held as planned. It looks like at least a couple of computers will be donated for use by patrons. The blaze was reported to have come from an electri-

cal fire, which started in the back of the building. “We don’t have a full report on the extent of the damage,” said Priest, who visited the building after the fire with the insurance adjuster and Town of Shandaken supervisor Rob Stanley. “The adjuster said there has to be a second claims adjustment because it’s considered a major loss. We don’t think any books or materials will be salvageable. But because of the location of the fishing collection, we may be able to clean some of that and save it.” The Jerry Bartlett Memorial Angling Collection includes more than 500 fishing and nature books, plus an exhibit of fishing rods, lures, fly tying gear, and photographs. “The books are a mess,” said Priest. “Everything is fused together and melted. What’s in the front of the building has been damaged by smoke and water, but everything there is like we left it. Then you cross a line towards the back, and everything is black. There’s a hole of the ceiling of the children’s room, and you can look right up into my office upstairs. Everything from my desk is on the floor Continued on Page 7

INETY MILES OFF Broadway will present “I Remember Mama” at the New Paltz Reformed Church on Nov. 2, Nov. 3, Nov. 9 and Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. The play will also be performed at the First United Methodist Church in Highland on Nov. 17 at 7:30 p.m. The story shows how Mama,

with the help of her husband and her Uncle Chris, brings up the children in a modest San Francisco home during the early years of the century. Mama, with sweetness and capability, sees her children through childhood, managing to educate them and to see one of her daughters begin a career as a writer. Mama’s sisters and uncle furnish a rich

background for a great deal of comedy and a little incidental tragedy. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $8 for students on opening night only, $12 for seniors/students and advanced sales and $10 for members/groups. For additional information, e-mail email@ninetymilesoffbroadway.com or call 256-9657.

N TUESDAY, NOV. 6, not only will residents vote on numerous contended races -- most notably being who shall become the president of the US -- but there will also be a plethora of local votes cast for federal, state, county and municipal political leaders. In the Town of Lloyd, the only local referendum on the ballot is for voters to decide whether or not the town clerk, town highway superintendent and town supervisor should have their two-year terms extended to four years. These are all separate referenda, as suggested by Lloyd supervisor Paul Hansut, who said that he wants to give “voters a chance to weigh in on each and every position, and not lump them all together, as many towns have done in the past.” The idea behind the four-year term, according to Hansut, is to give those elected to office “enough time to get familiar with the nuts and bolts of the job, Continued on page 12

hen Jenny Lee Fowler moved from Oregon in 1997, she decided to mark each snowfall that first winter in the East by cutting a snowflake out of paper. Being a person who makes things by hand, it seemed like a fun thing to do. Then, like the icy flakes that drift lazily on the wind before becoming a full-fledged storm, the act of cutting paper snowflakes took on a momentum of its own as Fowler became fascinated with the folk tradition of papercutting. One day, her father-in-law asked her if she’d ever done a portrait, like the silhouettes created by folk artists. Her interest piqued, Fowler dared herself to cut 100 portraits of people. Beginning with friends and family, she later moved on to cutting portraits of strangers, who would sit for her at the campus center at Bard, where Fowler worked. “I practiced a lot and found that I totally loved it,” says Fowler. “It kind of surprised me because I’d thought of silhouette portraits as these kind of ‘stuffy’ things, and then I realized that they were really cross-sections of people at a moment in time. I started to see them as more dynamic.” Fowler came across a passage in which one of the early papercutters called silhouette portraits “a moment’s monument,” a description that she finds particularly apt. “They really do capture a little moment, and even the same person can have a different portrait the next day,” Fowler explains. Artful papercutting is now Fowler’s niche, and the Continued on page 13
