PLAYWRIGHT BILL CAIN has most recently written for House of Cards. It may also be significant that he is a Jesuit priest, writing about a historical event that is sometimes known as the “Jesuit treason.”

T

he drama of last year’s positive DNA identification of a skeleton dug up from a Leicester parking lot as the remains of King Richard III made many of us aware for the first time of a growing movement in England to rehabilitate the much-maligned monarch’s historical reputation. Many now argue that Richard Crookback has gotten a bad rap, was probably not the culprit behind the deaths of the two young York princes in the Tower of London and was in fact, as Francis Bacon put it, “a good lawmaker for the ease and solace of the common people.” As with many iconic figures from English history, we have William Shakespeare to thank for much of our popular impressions of Richard III’s character. Like any artist of his day, the Bard of Avon was dependent for his living on the patronage of aristocrats; and those patrons wanted hagiography, not historical accuracy, for their ancestors. Thus, the House of Tudor’s mostly Lancastrian antecedents come off rather better than their Yorkish opponents in Shakespeare’s chronicles of the Wars of the Roses. The Bard knew which side his bread was buttered on. Of course, it’s easier to manipulate public perception of events that happened before the lifetimes of one’s audiences, and the only time that Shakespeare deviated from that formula was when he wrote a play – widely considered one of his weakest efforts – about his patron Queen Elizabeth I’s father, King Henry VIII. Of his opinions on the burning political issues of his own day we have no record, except insofar as he was able to insinuate the most oblique of commentaries in between the lines of his plays. We do have some indication of proCatholic sympathies on both sides of his family tree, but those would have been extremely dangerous to express in

England during Shakespeare’s day. So it’s no great surprise that the matter of the 1605 Gunpowder Plot – by far the most sensational news story of the Bard’s lifetime – was the sort of narrative that he wouldn’t have touched with a ten-foot pole, however dramatic. But what if he had? What if some wealthy and influential contemporary with an axe to grind had wanted to exploit Shakespeare’s talent for propaganda in free verse, and offered him a commission that he couldn’t refuse? How differently might contemporary Britons “Remember, remember, the Fifth of November” today if the Bard had gotten his hands on the real story, interviewing the indicted conspirators before their executions? That’s the intriguing premise behind Equivocation, a contemporary play by Bill Cain, in which the would-be patron, King James’s trusted advisor Sir Robert Cecil, himself has something to hide with regard to the foiled plot to blow up the House of Lords. The playwright’s previous works include Stand Up Tragedy and Nine Circles; he developed the television series Nothing Sacred and most recently has written for House of Cards. It may also be significant that Cain is a Jesuit priest, writing about a historical event that is sometimes known as the “Jesuit treason.” On one level, Equivocation is an exploration of the confluence of truth, art and artifice and the ethical choices that artists who work for a living must make. On another, it’s a speculation about the man, about whom we know so little, behind the deathless literary master: Cain spends some time probing the relationship between Shakespeare (called Shagespeare or Shag in the play) and his neglected daughter Judith, for example, as well as with the members of his acting troupe. A review in Variety described Equivocation as “one of the most bracingly intelligent, sizzling theatrical American plays in a decade.” The play will have its regional premiere at the Unison Arts & Learning Center in New Paltz this Friday, March 21 and run for two weekends, performed by the Mohonk

Mountain Stage Company. Christine Crawfis will direct, and the cast includes Phil Douglas, Rick Meyer, Jeff Battersby, Michael Frohnhoefer, William Connors and Alina Gonzalez. Performances of Equivocation begin at 8 p.m. on Fridays, March 21 and 28, and Saturdays, March 22 and 29. Tickets cost $20 in advance for general admission, $15 for Unison members, and $25 at the door, $20 for Unison members. Students get in for half-price with a valid ID.

B

y now firmly ensconced in its new Black Box Theatre tucked away in the Oakwood Commons North Building on Route 9 south of Poughkeepsie, Half Moon Theatre is ready to put on a musical. And a fine choice it is: Side by Side by Sondheim, a fun and sophisticated revue of the output of the great songsmith’s first couple of decades of composing for the stage. It includes numbers both familiar and lesser-known from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, West Side Story, Gypsy, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Anyone Can Whistle and Pacific Overtures. New York City director Michael Schiralli will preside over the production, which will star Molly Renfroe Katz, Denise Summerford, Kenneth Kyle Martinez and David Simpatico, with musical direction by Sarah Brett England. Side by Side also

hen Ellenville-based playwright Brian Petti (Masquerade, The Love Song of Sidney J. Stein, Banshee) was asked by the Irish Cultural Centre in East Durham to write monologues for characters who might have lived in the reconstructed authentic Irish cottage on the facility’s premises, he responded with an account by a farmer of how his family had been devastated by the Irish potato blight and famine of the 1840s. It was the beginning of a project that grew and grew, as Petti – who is Irish on his mother’s side – brought the farmer’s daughter to America in a subsequent monologue, then added more recent episodes drawn from his own family lore. The result is a play titled Echoes of Ireland that, in the author’s words, “follows the Cunyngham clan through their journey across the ocean to the ports of Manhattan, through the lowly existence of immigrant life in the States, to the assimilation and rebirth of their family as American citizens.” The family saga will be performed in the Lobby at the Ritz Theater in Newburgh this Friday and Saturday, March 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinée this Sunday, March 23. Petti directs, and local actors Ron Morehead of Cairo, Cat Barney of Kingston and Dana Gabor of Middletown join him in the cast. Tickets to Echoes of Ireland cost $15 and are available online at www.artful. ly/store/events/2624. Proceeds from the performances will benefit Safe Harbors of the Hudson, a Newburgh-based community organization that provides affordable housing, job training and support services for the homeless, the mentally ill, military veterans and artists. The play is being presented by Safe Harbors of the Hudson and Hatmaker’s Attic Productions, through an agreement with Eldridge Plays & Musicals.

The Boys from Syracuse opens this Friday in Rhinebeck, followed by The Comedy of Errors Centerstage Productions will present The Boys from Syracuse from Friday, March 21 through Sunday, March 30 and The Comedy of Errors from Friday, April 4 through Sunday, April 13 at the Center for Performing Arts in Rhinebeck. Both shows are part of the Sam Scripps Shakespeare Festival and feature identical casts. “We had a unique casting process in finding actors that could not only handle the demands of performing in a musical, but also handle Shakespeare’s language,” says Lou Trapani, director of Syracuse and producer of Comedy. Rodgers and Hart’s The Boys from Syracuse is a musical telling of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. The story follows identical twins who are separated from each other in a shipwreck as young children. Their servants, both named Dromio, are also long-separated identical twins. When the two pairs arrive in the same town, a comedy of errors and mistaken identities ensues when one of the twins winds up with his brother’s wife and the other becomes servant to the wrong master. Performances for both shows begin on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and on Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets for both shows cost $22 for adults and $20 for seniors and children, available at www. centerforperformingarts.org or by calling the box office at (845) 876-3080 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

IN 1884, NEWBURGH BECAME THE FIRST AMERICAN CITY to be electrified when Thomas Edison opened the Edison Electric Illuminating Company of Newburgh on Montgomery Street. And in 1939, Newburgh was where RCA chose to test-market television for the consumer market.

Making waves Newburgh was television’s first test market

A

ll through the 19th century and up to the middle of the 20th, the City of Newburgh was a beautiful and thriving center of commerce and culture along the Hudson River. And while most people know about Newburgh’s earlier contributions to American history, when George Washington made his headquarters there during the final phases of the Revolutionary War, Newburgh played a pivotal role in our nation’s history during the years that followed the Industrial Revolution, too. In 1884, Newburgh became the first American city to be electrified when Thomas Edison opened the Edison Electric Illuminating Company of Newburgh on Montgomery Street. And in 1939, Newburgh was where RCA chose to test-market television for the consumer market. RCA’s first experimental television transmissions began a decade earlier, in 1928. A 13-inch-tall papier-mâchÊ model of Felix the Cat (chosen for its tonal contrast) was placed on a record-player turntable, his revolutions broadcast for several hours a day. The image received was only two inches high. But while the images were technically broadcast, that doesn’t mean that they reached anyone’s home. RCA’s experiments with the

rotating Felix were only seen in-house by the people developing the new technology. By 1938, RCA had built an experimental television studio in Manhattan and, according to James Von Schilling’s The Magic Window: American Television 1939-1953, had already invested $10 million in the development of television without yet making a cent. The public got its first look at television at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. A brochure for the exhibit in RCA’s “Hall of Television� promised: “A preview of

Talk on Ulster regiments at the Battle of Gettysburg this Friday in Kingston The next installment of “Kingston’s Buried Treasures” will feature an informative talk about local regiments that took part in the Battle of Gettysburg by Civil War historian Gary Schussler. He’ll speak about “Kingston at the Battle of Gettysburg: The Ulster 20 th & 120th” on Friday, March 21 at 5:30 p.m. in the Vanderlyn Gallery of the Senate House Museum at 296 Fair Street in Kingston. The presentation is free, and all are welcome. Few if any battles burn as brightly in the pantheon of our nation’s history as the Battle of Gettysburg. Fought over three days in July of 1863, the battle marked the turning point in the War between the States and the highwater mark of the Confederate effort in the Civil War. And in this pivotal contest, where the fate of the nation literally hung in the balance, our local soldiers, the 20th New York State Militia and the Ulster 120th Infantry Regiment, played critical roles in the outcome of this historic battle. Largely unsung in the saga of Gettysburg, the Ulster 20th and 120th have earned the honor, respect and thanks of a nation for their sacrifices on those brutal summer days.

Or, for that matter, with people still humming everything from the Rogers & Hart or Hammerstein songbooks to Tommy, Webber or Good Morning, Baltimore on a daily basis; and new generations now hooked on Frozen and the rest of the movie fare that comes out each year with tunes saturated in old Broadway stylings. Langworth, who’s concluding his spring Larry Berk Artist-in-Residency with the upcoming events that include two more master classes at the community college, started his Broadway career in A Chorus Line before eventually hitting his stride with recent revivals of South Pacific and Next Fall. Last year he earned big acclaim for his direction of a one-man concert performance by Tony Award winner Paulo Szot that premiered at the Spoleto Festival in Italy and went on to play New York’s 54 Below. “I have been blown away by the natural talent of SUNY-Ulster students,” says Langworth, who has been working with theater students on vocal techniques and the storytelling needs hidden within individual songs. “The students’ excitement and desire to learn more about musical theater made it thrilling for me to share a few of the things I’ve learned throughout my career.” The Musical Theater Showcase on March 27 will feature songs selected by the students and Langworth from various contemporary musicals, as well as a group number with vocal harmonies. The idea was to help each student find tryout material that would demonstrate his or her best talents effortlessly. Langworth will also be offering an open

Su Jin Lee wins HVP String Competition The 42nd annual Hudson Valley Philharmonic (HVP) String Competition concluded its multi-day contest on Sunday, March 16 in front of  more than  400 music fans at Vassar College’s Skinner Hall. Three exceptional finalists from  20 string players vying for recognition performed in recital. The HVP String Competition, begun in 1966 under the direction of then-HVP artistic director/conductor maestro Claude Monteux, was conceived as a vehicle to identify talented string players for the Orchestra.  Decades later, the annual competition continues to attract some of the finest conservatory string players in the world. Many former winners have gone on to illustrious classical music careers. The first-place winner  was Su Jin Lee, a cellist from the New England Conservatory, where her teacher is Laurence Lesser. She played the Dvorák Concerto in B minor, Opus 104, which earns her a $3,000 First Prize plus an invitation to perform as a soloist with HVP as part of the 2014/15 season. Stephanie Zyzak, a violinist from the New England Conservatory, won second place. Third-place honors went to Xi Yang, a cellist from Bard Conservatory of Music. Congratulations!

IMARHAN TIMBUKTU IN KINGSTON THIS FRIDAY

M

ali’s one of those places that has left an imprint on world culture far greater than its small population or distance from anywhere else would ever suggest. Think Salif Keita, Toumani Diabate, Ali Farka Touré, Amadou et Mariam and the great Tuareg Saharan band Tinariwen, or the seminal crossover albums that such global stars have done with Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Robert Plant and Peter Gabriel. The rhythms are complex yet driving, the musicianship astounding and the new uses for electric guitars intoxicating. Now, fresh from a performance at the South by Southwest festival in Austin on Friday, March 14, and a tour taking them to hotspots from Paris to Asheville, DC and New York, northern Mali’s Imarhan Timbuktu comes to Kingston’s BSP on Wall Street this Friday via their record company, locally based Clermont Music. The tour celebrates the release of the group’s debut album, Akal Warled. Imarhan Timbuktu, which translates as “those who love Timbuktu,” was born out of its home area’s civil strife of recent years. The group’s leader, Mohamed Issa Ag Oumar, is a guitarist and vocalist of hypnotic power, backed up in concert by brother Ousmane Ag Oumar, hand-drumming sister Fadimata Walet Oumar and Zeinabou Walet and a bass-and-drums component offered up by the Navajo band Sihasin. This is infectious, one-of-a-kind dance music whose roots in politics give it the same innate power that early Wailers music had. It’s not to be missed. – Paul Smart Imarhan Timbuktu in concert, Friday, March 21, 7:30 p.m., BSP Lounge, 323 Wall Street, Kingston; (845) 481-5158.

A LABOR OF LOVE THAT TOOK DECADES TO REALIZE, The Wind Rises is a fitting capstone to the long career of Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki, the man who elevated Japan’s once-crude anime style of cartooning to a level of true artistic excellence now appreciated around the globe.

The tuneful Disney Ice Capades-prototype certainly has caught the fancy of young audiences in America this season. And yes, it won the Best Animated Feature Academy Award for 2013 – but in a just world, it shouldn’t have. The Wind Rises, from Japan’s legendary Studio Ghibli, should have blown Frozen right out of the water. When the authoritative history of animated cinema gets written, The Wind Rises is the movie that will have made 2013 a milestone year, the one that will be praised and remembered as an exemplar of the form.

Jiro’s conflicted feelings about his work manifest in strange and vivid dreams, where his hero, the Italian aircraft pioneer Giovanni Battista Caproni (Stanley Tucci), serves as the Virgil/Beatrice guiding him through his Hell of war and the Heaven of civilian flight. Jiro diagnoses the design flaws in his aircraft plans in dreams as well, watching his creations crumble in mid-flight from a particular point of structural weakness. One can’t help but wonder if Miyazaki is painting his own childhood dreams here, drawn from his upbringing in a family involved in airplane manufacture. The Wind Rises is a (fictionalized) love story as well, paralleling Jiro’s career with his sporadic contacts with a girl named Nahoko (Emily Blunt), whom he eventually marries but then loses to tuberculosis (in real life, Horikoshi and his wife both lived long enough to raise five kids). They first meet on a train in 1923, as Jiro is returning to university after a break, and exchange lines in French from a poem by Paul Valéry: “Le vent se lève!” “Il faut tenter de vivre!” – whence the film’s title. The journey is disrupted by the Great Kanto Earthquake, and Nahoko’s maid suffers a broken leg in the derailment. Jiro helps the two young women to safety and then leaves without giving his name, but eventually they track him down. Through such fanciful encounters Miyazaki illustrates significant incidents in prewar Japanese history, including the displacement and poverty brought on by the Depression, yielding insight into the mindset of a nation yearning to climb out of its own sense of technological backwardness in a rapidly changing world. Unlike the vast majority of previous Studio Ghibli films, which tend to be fantasies aimed at kids, The Wind Rises

hat, irreducibly, makes us human? Is it language? But clearly, animals have their own ways of communicating with others of their own species. Is it the ability to use language in ways that transcend fulfilling basic survival needs? Is it, as Noam Chomsky posited, some sort of hardwired mental capacity to organize language according to a syntactic system? Questions like these were rife in the air of academia during the 1970s, when psycholinguists and behavioral scientists were conducting experiments with apes to find out how much they could learn to communicate with us. The general public began to share the intellectual excitement when word got out in the mass media about the striking success of a gorilla named Koko in acquiring more than 1,000 words in American Sign Language (ASL). Even more impressive, Koko learned without prompting to string words together in novel ways: coining “water bird” the first time that she saw a swan, for example, or “finger bracelet” to describe a ring. Chimpanzees being our nearest DNA-sharing kin, many of the animal language-acquisition studies of the day focused on them. Washoe was the first to become famous: a wild-born chimp raised from the age of ten months to five years by a scientist couple named Beatrix and Allen Gardner in an environment where vocalizations were minimized, as if she were the child of deaf parents, and afterwards by Roger and Deborah Fouts. Washoe learned more than 350 signs and often strung two or three together in apparently meaningful combinations – coining “candy fruit” when introduced to watermelon, for example. She even spontaneously taught signs to other chimps in her social grouping. According to Roger Fouts, when one of Washoe’s caretakers returned to work after a miscarriage and told the chimp “My baby died” in ASL, Washoe responded by signing “Cry” and tracing the path of a tear down her cheek with her fingertip. But Columbia University behavioral psychologist Herbert Terrace was not impressed with the methodology of the Washoe project, believing that the subject has merely been conditioned to imitate signs in order to obtain rewards. So in 1973 Terrace undertook an ape language experiment of his own with a captive-born

Directed by James Marsh, who won a Best Documentary Feature Academy Award for Man on Wire, the film reconstructs Nim’s life during and after the study

tells an adult story with sobering themes of death, destruction, loss and moral compromise. Jiro must travel to prewar Germany to inspect prototype aircraft designed by Junkers, and witnesses Nazi night raids on unidentified citizens. Back in Japan, during a solo stay in a mountain resort that turns out to be owned by Nahoko’s father, he encounters a mysterious German expatriate calling himself Hans Castorp (Werner Herzog), after a character in Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain. Castorp condemns Hitler, says that both Germany and Japan are doomed if they pursue war and extols the power of magical places to help one forget the dark side of human existence. This is not a cartoon movie for small children, by any means. The frequent changes of scene, including the trip to Germany, also take this film to a new level in terms of immersive, exquisitely detailed visual depiction of landscapes and streetscapes. That has always been Studio Ghibli’s strong suit, but here for the first time its artists get to portray places that look decidedly un-Japanese. If you have avoided anime in the past for its highly stylized “look” (admittedly an acquired taste, though younger folks seem to have less difficulty than older ones in acquiring it), this is the movie in which to take the plunge. You will definitely not feel like you’re reading a manga comic book. It’s more like an endlessly unfolding panoply of Impressionist watercolors, every one a stunner. Modern young people who claim the term “nerd” as a badge of honor should certainly be able to relate to an animated hero whose weapon of choice is a slide rule. Jiro, the brilliant young engineer

whose quest to create airborne beauty transcends the destructive uses to which his creations are put, is the quintessential techno-wonk with a pure imagination and a heart of gold. The Wind Rises could inspire plenty of American teens to work as hard as their Japanese contemporaries. But take them to see it – and see it yourself – for beauty’s sake alone. – Frances Marion Platt

Professor Herbert Terrace with Nim Chimpsky in car as seen in Project Nim

chimpanzee dubbed Nim Chimpsky. As an infant, Nim was raised by a surrogate human family who were not fluent in ASL, but was subsequently relocated several times in order to conduct the experiment under more controlled clinical conditions instead of in an environment of social learning. The chimp eventually learned about 125 signs, but became more aggressive as he matured, doing things that grown chimpanzees are genetically programmed to do, like biting his handlers. Funding sources dried up, and only four years into the project, Terrace declared that it had proven his thesis that apes don’t use signs in syntactically meaningful ways. Nim was relegated to the cold, sterile environment of a primate research center in Oklahoma and later sold to a pharmaceutical testing laboratory before eventually being rescued by the Fund for Animals and living out his “retirement” years in an animal sanctuary. Nim’s is a sad and a fascinating story, captured in Elizabeth Hess’s book Nim Chimpsky: The Ape Who Would Be Human and a documentary film based on it, Project Nim. Directed by James Marsh, who won a Best Documentary Feature Academy Award for Man on Wire, the film reconstructs Nim’s life during and after the study using archival footage and extensive interviews with Terrace and many of the graduate students and other caretakers who worked with the chimp. The focus of Project Nim is far less on the scientific implications of the study than it is in the human egos involved and in the humanitarian issues involved in animal experimentation. So it’s no surprise that this Sunday’s free screening of the documentary at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck is being sponsored by the Mid-Hudson Vegetarian Society and Hudson Valley Vegans. Author Hess will be on hand for a question-andanswer session and “meetup” at Rhinebeck Town Hall immediately following the 1 p.m. showing of the film. Vegan appetizers and desserts will be served at the post-screening event; call (845) 876-2626 or e-mail rsvp@mhvs.org to reserve a ticket. – Frances Marion Platt Project Nim screening, Sunday, March 23, 1 p.m., free, Upstate Films, 6415 Montgomery Street (Route 9), Rhinebeck, Hudson Valley Vegans meetup/discussion afterwards, Rhinebeck Town Hall, 80 East Market Street, Rhinebeck; (845) 876-2626, rsvp@mhvs.org.

Bardavon screens Cabaret this Friday The Bardavon will continue its Friday Night Film Series on Friday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m. with Cabaret (1972), winner of eight Oscars including Bob Fosse for Best Director and Liza Minnelli for Best Supporting Actress. Enjoy a pre-show live Wurlitzer organ concert at 7 p.m. General admission tickets cost $6. The film is loosely based on the 1966 Broadway musical Cabaret by Kander and Ebb, which was adapted from the novel The Berlin Stories (1939) by Christopher

Isherwood and the 1951 play I Am a Camera adapted from the same book. Only a few numbers from the stage score were used for the film; Kander and Ebb wrote new ones to replace those that were discarded. Cabaret still holds the record for most Academy Award wins in a single year without winning the highest honor, Best Picture. It lost the Best Picture award to The Godfather, which won three awards. Tickets are available at the Bardavon box office at 35 Market Street in Poughkeepsie, (845) 473-2072, or through Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000 or www.ticketmaster. com.

oodstock’s Franco Vogt has been a commercial photographer for 28 years. Born in Italy to a US Navy father stationed in Naples, he moved about as a kid, drifting in college until he realized that he could make a living working in photography, something he learned from his Dad. “We used to make prints together in the kitchen. It was magic,” Vogt said. “When I got to New York I found work as an apprentice to some great photographers, and did that for four or five years until I struck out on my own... I ate a lot of cheap food to get by there, but in the end I was very fortunate in that the people I worked with were very forthcoming about what it takes to make photography one’s business, from how to estimate a job to the ways in which one markets oneself.” Vogt described a world of high-end commercial shoots where every detail counts, and a millimeter movement in one’s camera can break a shot – and a

career, and where the money was greater than anticipated – until suddenly it wasn’t. And now, the entire world of photography has shifted to something that many feel is pedestrian – at least for the moment. How did Vogt gain his sense of style, that look that is his alone? “Your style just sort of emerges over the course of taking many, many pictures,” he said. “You try many things and start to learn what’s not really you; then you home in on certain qualities.” Vogt spent years traveling for the Corbis stock agency, and shooting product lines and sports for clients. What he loves most, though, is doing portraits. “What I really enjoy doing is looking at faces,” he explained. “I like working with people to get the right mood, to let them know that it’s natural to feel a bit awkward in front of a camera. I’m searching for a slight vulnerability that helps define a person.” Vogt’s 60/60 project of four years ago produced 60 individual portrait shoots in 60 days. His new “Deliberately Dark” pieces work with minimal lighting sources and a much darker, stylized look – which, he said is easier for men, who don’t mind looking moody, and craggy even, than women. For inspiration, Vogt looks to the classics in the photo portraiture world, as well as the look of certain movies. But he also keeps an eye on art history; on painted portraits; and the quirks of each person shoots. “I do a lot of talking while I’m on a shoot,” he says. “I set the shot up, and then the clicks occur and the picture happens while people are no longer self-conscious. I particularly love those moments just before a smile, or right after. A lot of what I do involves listening – and I guess provoking, in subtle ways.” Vogt has been doing more of his own projects since moving upstate eight years ago. The recent years of all-digital shooting have freed him up to try more

atercolors of New Paltz, Rosendale and Woodstock landscapes, photographs of birds at rest and in flight and postcardsize photos by Mary Ottaway of New Paltz will be exhibited in the Community Room of the Gardiner Library from March 25 to May 19. An artist’s reception will be held at the Library on Sunday, March 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. In an artist’s statement for the exhibit, Ottaway wrote: “My watercolors are my meditations. They are mostly of places I love nearby, like Mohonk from Pine Road and the Rosendale Trestle bridge. I like to begin them outdoors, or at least with my car-studio window open. “The small photographs are of birds and animals that cross my path. The swans I saw along Binnewater Road are here, as well as the juvenile hawk that flew into the front door, and the wood turtle that lays her eggs in the little garden at the foot of our door steps in June.... If the watercolors are meditations and the photographs encounters, my postcards are my conversations. They remind me of the baseball cards I loved as a child, minus the bubblegum...If they make it to a friend’s refrigerator, I am very happy.” Ottaway studied painting with the late Alex Martin at SUNY-New Paltz in the Fine Arts program; and watercolor painting with Staats Fasoldt of Rosendale at the Woodstock School of Art. She started making fine art photographs while living in Middletown in 1962. The art exhibit will be open for public viewing during regular library hours: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday from 12 noon to 4 p.m. For more information, call the Gardiner Library, located at 133 Farmers’ Turnpike, at 255-1255.

experiments, since the costs are different – although, Vogt added, the overall expenses involved in equipment purchases have gone up, while the amounts paid for photo shoots have declined. “It used to be you dropped off your film and that was that,” he said. “Now, you produce the shoot and then essentially do your own darkroom and finishing, your processing and editing. I’ve always called myself a commercial artist, but then I had a one-man show in Los Angeles last September, of more abstract mirrored images, and I’m realizing that there’s something very enjoyable about making pictures without a paycheck tied to them.” Moreover, he says, there’s value in being able to see one’s works printed and on a wall, instead of on a laptop, tablet or phone. “Photography kept getting better and better over the years, until new equipment in the 1970s made it look worse,” he said. “And that’s happening again as everyone shifts to Instagram and other modes that are cool, but not really all that great-looking. I worry, sometimes, that everyone will end up with their kids grown up and no real portraits of them beyond some cool pictures on computers

they can no longer access, or school photos.” Has moving to Woodstock changed what he does? “It really has. I’ve become much more relaxed about things,” Vogt said. “You do American Express, then you do Joe and Mary Smith down the road. The feedback from the Smiths is so much more enthusiastic, so much more personal, that it makes the photography improve.” – Paul Smart For more information on Franco Vogt, call (845) 679-5913 or visit www.francovogt.com.

CONTROVERSY

RANDOLPH COLLEGE SELLS OFF BELOVED GEORGE BELLOWS PAINTING TO THE UK

W

ith all the talk about using art sales to help buoy municipal and institutional finances, exacerbated by ongoing talk involving the world-class Detroit Institute of Art collection and its host city’s ongoing bankruptcy, a recent Southern liberal art college’s sale of a painting has gained worldwide attention – and ours, given the fact that the artist in question is George Bellows, who lived his final years in Woodstock. The painting being sold, Men of the Docks, was one of the first that I came to love as a boy growing up, with it the highlight of our local art museum. Back then, Randolph College was still Randolph-Macon Women’s College. Its art program offered classes for local kids, and its museum was a great way of hooking one’s hopes and dreams to a world greater than that of Lynchburg, Virginia, where the college was like an oasis. The college went coed seven years ago, and almost immediately started “deaccessing” its collection of US art. The first sale was for $7 million and resulted in lawsuits and much news. The sale of the latest Bellows to the National Gallery in London was for more than $25 million – and has resulted in the college and museum being sanctioned by the Association of Art Museum Directors. Now everyone’s waiting to see if that has any effect as college officials look to balance their books by deaccessing Edward Hicks’ great Peaceable Kingdom and other rare works. How rich is our culture these days, when we can’t hold onto the pillars of civilization and everything seems for sale? Watch this story – and thank the heavens for our own great local collections at Vassar, Bard and SUNY-New Paltz. – Paul Smart

Bard prof Daniel Mendelsohn given award by American Academy of Arts and Letters Author, critic and Bard professor Daniel Mendelsohn is one of 20 writers to receive a 2014 American Academy of Arts and Letters award in literature. Mendelsohn has won the Harold D. Vursell Memorial Award of $20,000, given to a writer whose work merits recognition for the quality of its prose style. The American Academy of Arts and Letters awards will be presented in New York in May at the Academy’s annual ceremony. The literature prizes honor both established and emerging writers of fiction, nonfiction and poetry. The Academy’s 250 members nominate candidates, and a rotating committee of writers selects winners. This year’s committee members were Louis Begley, Louise Glück, Alison Lurie, Francine Prose, Mark Strand and Charles Wright. Mendelsohn was born on Long Island and educated at the University of Virginia

and Princeton University. His essays and reviews have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books and The New York Times Books Review, for which he is currently a “Bookends” columnist. He has also been the weekly book critic for New York and is a contributing editor at Travel + Leisure.

Mendelsohn’s best-seller The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million won the National Book Critics’ Circle Award in Autobiography and the National Jewish Book Award, as well as the Prix Médicis in France. It has been published in more than 15 languages. His other books include The Elusive Embrace, a memoir; C. P. Cavafy:

NO ELEGANCE OR STUFFINESS HERE to go with the high-end culinary wizardry, but the kind of place where you just want to kick back and hang out all day

A fine tine

Another Fork in Milan offers gourmet fare in a relaxed setting

T

he wildly imaginative fare of chef Jamie Parry might tease your tastebuds with a dish like salmon with chamomile broth, golden beets, baby artichokes and Ligurian olive oil ($24). Not afraid to use a little seaweed or duck fat in unexpected places, he and his cooks at Another Fork in Milan play with fire – and ramps, leeks, lamb chorizo and ever so much more, on a continuously evolving menu, as proprietor Parry aims to bring out the best in local and in-season raw materials. You have to get past a couple of forks before you get to Another Fork’s fine fare. The Dutchess County road trip through Rock City takes you past an assortment of larger-than-life giants: an eight-ball, a toothed fish, Christmas ornaments, a Prozac pill and a 30-foottall fork, and finally, you’re almost at the Taconic Parkway by the time you get there. Then you stop at the unassuming little red schoolhouselike building lined with windows, pass the crude sign boasting local produce outside the door, then a long rug with a big fork on it leads to the casual, comfortable, unpretentious interior. No elegance or stuffiness here to go with the high-end culinary wizardry, but the kind of place where you just want to kick back and hang out all day. Although the sign says “a finer diner,” the only thing dineresque is the lineup of cakes on a counter near the entrance (plus a beautiful apple tart). Although in a previous incarnation the space was a diner called Another Roadside Attraction, there is little of the diner left. Gnomes and other knickknacks assure that nothing is taken too seriously. Walls are decorated with art by family and friends, like a sketch that Parry’s wife Katie (who, with Carol Horning, owns Red Hook’s Grandiflora

nursery) did when she was a teenager. There’s also art by Parry’s nine-year-old daughter Sally, doodles and paintings by friends and an Italian poster for a Clint Eastwood movie. Kids, who can get antsy during restaurant visits, have plenty of diversions. They can just count the forks or play in an area just for them, with toys, kids’ books and a blackboardpainted storage unit with chalk. The grownups can browse through magazines and a collection of cookbooks and other books, which evokes welcome, an invitation to settle in and stay awhile. But the food will make you sit up and pay attention. Parry’s visionary approach will have you tasting unexpected combinations, on a menu that is constantly evolving and being reconfigured. If something is a hit, it may stay around awhile. “We have clunkers, too,” though, Parry laughs. “If it doesn’t work, we take it off the menu.” How these wild items are dreamed up is a joint effort, though. “We figure it out by consensus,” he says. “I learn from the cooks who work for me…We swirl around each other.” The customers inspire him as well. “We have conversations,” he says. He loves to see people pleasantly surprised when they come in and look at the menu. What are causing those smiles are items like, on one recent menu: starters like homemade mozzarella with grilled bread,

good olive oil and sea salt ($8); a Brussels sprout Caesar salad ($11); escargots with butternut squash, hijiki (seaweed) and toganoshi oil (a Japanese spice blend) ($9); wax beans with black olive tapenade, roasted almonds and toasted seeds ($10); mussels monclade with winter root vegetables, p a n c e tt a a n d chive ($18); peekytoe crab with cauliflower pannacotta, green goddess dressing and toasted seeds ($12); hand-cut pappardelle with lamb chorizo, white beans, sweet peppers, tomato, Romano and crispy sage ($18); cornmeal-crusted calamari with arugula, pickled jalapeños, chicharrones (cracklings) and celery heart pesto ($12). Entrees go on to braised brisket with porcini cream, winter root vegetables and grilled leeks ($24); grilled leg of lamb with roasted zucchini and parsnip, romesco and rosemary pesto ($26); and pan-seared duck breast with celeriac puree, butternut squash and Swiss chard ($24). Another force of inspiration for Parry is Jeffrey Gimmel, owner of Swoon Kitchenbar in Hudson, for whom Parry worked for five years. “Swoon was an incredible foundation for me,” he says, “and Jeff is an incredible teacher.” After Swoon, Parry worked for Natalie Steward DiBenedetto (who previously owned Mina in Red Hook) at Another Fork. Five years ago, when she relocated to Maine, Chef Parry took over, and a year later started adding dinner to the breakfast and lunch that Another Fork offered. Then a liquor license followed, with offerings of craft beers and good wines (mostly from France, Italy and Spain). Like the rest of us, Parry is looking forward to spring – but for the coming change in ingredients: those exciting harbingers morels, ramps and asparagus, as well as the game birds that farmers will begin offering, like grouse and pheasant. He says that radishes are another early

spring ingredient that he likes to put in soups and braises, or just serve with dulsespiked butter and smoked sea salt. “I’m looking forward to anything green,” he laughs, “that isn’t a root vegetable.” As for that spot, way out there past that fork and a bit of a drive from town? “It’s a challenge,” he admits, “but I like being apart from the Rhinebeck and Red Hook restaurant scene.” Another Fork also serves breakfast and lunch, which have menus that are “more stable,” according to Parry.

The ancient desert-dwelling Arabs clearly knew that something was amiss, because Algol’s very name means “the Ghoul” or demon. Every two days, 20 hours and 49 minutes, Algol loses half its light.

GARDENER’S NOTEBOOK

Full scale warfare Summer oil blocks respiration in plant pests

O

ver the past few weeks, excitement was steadily mounting on the windowsill. First came the stalk that poked up from the bases of whorls of leathery leaves. Then, buds started fattening up along the stalks. Finally, after a half a decade of growing Dendrobium kingianum, the pink rock orchid, it looked like the plant might finally reward me with some blossoms – which it did, a couple of days ago. The actual blossoming was somewhat anticlimactic: no flamboyant shapes or colors, just small white blossoms. And no particularly green thumb was required to get this orchid to blossom – just time. Pink rock orchid is known to be a tough plant. While many orchids are native to lush tropical jungles – the conditions of which are hard even to approach indoors, except in a hothouse – this orchid is native to the rocky environments of Australia. It tolerates cold below freezing and hot temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and does not demand an inordinate amount of light. I water whenever the potting mix seems dry. The problem is that “orchid flowering” conjures up both a greater challenge and blossoms more spectacular than are offered by pink rock orchid. So I’m now just going to look upon it as an attractive houseplant with an attractive flower. It even has a pleasant, slight scent.

I’ve waxed enthusiastic about the handfuls of ripe figs that I gather up in late summer and into fall from my greenhouse, and about heads of lettuce and mâche, celery stalks and sprigs of parsley that fill salad bowls all winter. Yet all is not always so Edenlike within the greenhouse. Last year scale insects began to attack a

couple of fig trees. Innocuous-looking small bumps on the bark – dormant scale insects – threaten to wake up in a larger outbreak this year. Action is needed – now. Last year at this time, my weapon was an old toothbrush and a solution of soapy water. The brute force method of scrubbing the insects from the bark was effective – to a point – but tedious. This year I’m smothering the buggers. My weapon of choice is oil: not any old oil, but a specially refined oil that minimizes damage to plants while leaving insects gasping for air. It also contains an emulsifier, so it readily mixes with water. Spray oil comes in two “flavors”: dormant oil and summer oil. Plants are more likely to be damaged by oil when they are in leaf and growing, so summer oils are more refined; summer oils mixed at higher concentrations can be used as dormant oils. (Summer oils are also called “horticultural oils,” “stylet oils” or “ultrafine oils.”) Oil sprays have been around for a long time – commercially for over 100 years – and have the advantages of causing little harm to beneficial organisms and being relatively safe for birds, humans and other mammals. Insects and mites (which oils also control) have little likelihood of developing resistance to oil sprays. The oils might be petroleum-, plant- or fish-based. So what’s not to like about oil sprays? Most importantly, they can damage plants. To avoid damage, sprays must be applied when temperatures are above freezing but not too, too hot – say, above 90 degrees. Also, some plants, such as Japanese maple, redbud, azalea, hibiscus and sugar maple, are readily damaged by oil; and oil will strip the blue waxy coating from Colorado blue spruce, turning the needles green. The longer any plant is coated with oil, the more chance for damage; low humidity hastens its evaporation. Spray oils work by direct contact, which is advantageous unless you have a pest whose eggs are resistant to oil and

keep hatching over time, or if the pest flies in from elsewhere. Many gardeners routinely spray their fruit trees in spring with oil, with little effect, because the most significant pests of fruit trees generally do not hang out on the stems or fruits for long enough for a direct hit by an oil spray. Back to the fig trees in my greenhouse. They’re getting weekly sprays of dormant-strength summer oil until the leaves begin to unfold. Once that happens, I may mix up a batch of summerstrength oil. The goal is to reduce populations drastically, because, despite the innocuousness of oil sprays, I’d rather not spray anything once fruits begin to develop. My other tack to keep scale insects at bay is to wrap the trunk with a band of masking tape coated with sticky Tangletrap, providing a Maginot Line to stop ants from climbing the trees (hopefully, more effective than the real Maginot Line). Ants enjoy the sweet honeydew exuded by the scale insects, and in return herd them, protecting them from predators. Spraying and banding may seem like a lot of effort, but fresh figs are worth it. And with snow still on the ground, there’s not that much else to do yet, gardenwise, this time of year. – Lee Reich

NIGHT SKY

Are you feeling blocked? Things in the sky are blinking off

B

y now, even the mass media will have reported that the other night – Wednesday night at 2:06 a.m. – the bright star Regulus in Leo was eclipsed by an asteroid. This occultation was potentially visible along a narrow path 100 miles wide that happened to pass over our region. It’s very rare for a bright star to be occulted, and extraordinarily unusual for it to be seen from here. This vanishing of the sky’s 22nd-brightest star lasted about ten seconds as seen from our area. It had the potential to let meticulous observers taking careful timings determine the exact size of the roughly 45-mile-wide asteroid, whose name is Erigone. This goes to press too late to tell you if the weather was clear (but the forecast was pretty dismal). This is an unusually rich year for celestial objects to get blocked or eclipsed. In just a THIS IS AN UNUSUALLY few weeks, the April Full Moon will venture RICH YEAR fully into Earth’s shadow and turn a coppery red (more about that soon). And this fall for celestial objects to get blocked our region will be treated to a second total or eclipsed. In just a few weeks, lunar eclipse: an unusual twofer. the April Full Moon will venture fully In truth, the sky is full of stars that wink into Earth’s shadow and turn on and off or periodically lose much of their a coppery red. And this fall light. The topic hasn’t appeared here for the our region will be treated past quarter-century simply because very to a second total lunar eclipse: few readers can find these stars. Most of an unusual twofer. these “variables” have unseen companions that orbit closely around them – too nearby for any telescope to detect visually. Yet the companion star in its orbit blocks some or all of the primary star’s light with a wonderful regularity. By chance, the most famous eclipsing binaries are out these nights. The most renowned is Algol in the constellation Perseus. The ancient desert-dwelling Arabs clearly knew that something was amiss, because Algol’s very name means “the Ghoul” or demon. Every two days, 20 hours and 49 minutes, Algol loses half its light. The outline of Perseus then changes dramatically. It’s a wonderful if oddly ineffable thrill to glance up during an evening stroll and suddenly notice that Algol is very faint. Mira, in the southwest these nights in the constellation Cetus the Whale, goes even further: Normally there’s no trace of it at all. But every 11 months, it brightens so much that for a month or two it is strikingly visible. In Taurus the Bull, the star Lambda, to which the “V” of Taurus points, loses half its light every four days. The famous star Delta in Cepheus, in the north, also loses about half its light, but in this case no eclipse or companion is involved in its five-day periodicity. The star itself grows larger and smaller. Similarly, the famous Betelgeuse in Orion also

changes its brightness, but here the period is wildly irregular: generally around three years. On rare occasions Betelgeuse will outshine Rigel to become Orion’s brightest star. Bottom line: Despite their reputation for permanency and reliability, many of the night’s visible stars change brightness. In many cases the alterations are visually striking with no equipment whatsoever. Some of the folks who love keeping track of them – a sadly diminishing number in our increasingly computer-focused and decreasingly hands-on society – belong to the AAVSO organization (the VS portion stands for “variable star”). I won’t mention this topic again; I know that it’s an esoteric pursuit. But it was merited now in this special year 2014, when stuff in the sky is getting eclipsed much more than usual. Stand by for the big Tax Day lunar eclipse. – Bob Berman Want to know more? To read Bob Berman’s previous “Night Sky” columns, visit our Almanac Weekly website at HudsonValleyAlmanacWeekly.com.

March 20-27 Buy One Get One Flea

Buy One Get One Flea is local band Dog on Fleas’ newly released eighth album, and I sure wish you could hear the music as you’re reading this piece about it, it’s that good – I don’t want you to miss a minute of it! Grammy Award-winning producer Dean Jones’s whimsical lyrics are paired with melodies that feel like cherished friends. The opening track, “Hinterlands,” is the perfect portal into the weird and wonderful world of the Fleas, whose humor is woven throughout the album. A must for your family’s road-trip playlist, “Hinterlands” cheerily ambles along with lines like, “There’s you and there’s me, and the parrot makes three.” “Palindrome” is a rollicking tune that celebrates these special words with lines like: “Spell Mom backwards and what do you get? You get Mom! It’s a palindrome...” There’s so much energy behind songs like “Dry Beans” and “Herring’s Head” that I can’t resist singing along. I crack up every time I hear “Pardon My Pajamas,” whose sweet trombone slides and noodling piano sounds evoke American jazz standards while Jones croons, “Pardon my pajamas. I didn’t bother to get myself dressed today.” Instrumental interludes “Grand March from Aïda” and “Over the Waves” feature the ragtag backyard “Dorkestra,” which contributes to the excellent pacing of the album. The song “Thinking Good Thoughts” is based on a single premise: “My job is thinking good thoughts/ What’s your job gonna be?” and it has actually helped me to turn some feelings around in the heat of the moment during some emotionally frustrating work, stepping back and remembering who I am: someone who wants to think “good thoughts.” I highly recommend Dog on Fleas’ Buy One Get One Flea album, available throughout the Hudson Valley and online at http://dogonfleas.com and www. cdbaby.com.

SUNY-New Paltz hosts forum on Common Core mandatory testing issues The topic of Common Core is even hotter than the scramble for wood pellets or the debate on whether Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell are still officially together post-Bachelor. I think it’s a positive move to model for our kids the independent research and reflection necessary to develop an

Their shows are interactive, and they get kids moving and having fun. Admission costs $10 for adults, $5 for kids or $20 per family of four, and $5 for each additional kid. The Rosendale Theatre is located at 408 Main Street in Rosendale. For more information, visit www.fuzzylollipop.com or http:// rosendaletheatre.org. – Erica Chase-Salerno

informed opinion, and to educate others. And if there’s one thing that the people of the Hudson Valley are good at, it’s delving into a heated issue head-on, digging deeper, learning more and sharing it with others. On Tuesday, March 25 at 7 p.m., head over to the Coykendall Science Building Auditorium at SUNY-New Paltz for “Reclaiming Quality Education: Test Refusal as a Human Right.” Panelists include an educator, an administrator, a student and a parent: Brian Jones, teacher in New York City, speaking on “Lessons from the civil rights movement for the test resistance movement”; Tim Farley, principal of Ichabod Crane School, on “Parental authority within the context of test refusal”; Maya Gold, student at New Paltz Middle School, on “Student actions to resist high-stakes testing”; and Bianca Tanis, parent in New Paltz and co-founder of New York State Allies for Public Education, on “Safeguarding our children’s education now.” With testing for grades 3 through 8 beginning on April 1, this event will help educate families on a bigger picture beyond the nightly homework routine of explaining number sentences and number bonds. SUNY-New Paltz is located at 1 Hawk Drive in New Paltz.

Vine Van Gogh presents “Sip & Paint” Have you seen references to Vine Van Gogh events taking place around the area? These “Sip & Paint” gatherings are a creative opportunity for a date or Mom’s night out or a birthday with friends or any occasion that you could think of – or just because. I attended one for the first time last week at Moxie Cupcake. With my Vine Van Gogh apron on, and my gluten-free vanilla coconut Moxie cupcake on standby to help nourish my Muse, I created my own version of our assigned heartand-grid guided painting project, in the style of modern artist Jim Dine. As someone with plenty of extrovert tendencies and zero painting tendencies, I was more interested in talking to my tablemates than painting. Everyone else seemed pretty focused on the task at hand, which was probably helpful so I could hustle to finish before it ended. The owners of Vine Van Gogh, husbandand-wife entrepreneur duo Tim Palladino and Melissa Ledbetter Palladino, were gracious and enthusiastic hosts. They fostered a relaxed setting, and they seem to love what they do. Tim explained their interest in the value of a hands-on direct art experience to people who love art. It helped tremendously to have rinsewater and paper towels delivered right to me all evening, and my many questions were patiently answered by the art instructor: Did you know that when blending colors, you start with the

lighter color and add a small amount of the darker color to it until you achieve the desired shade? Otherwise it would take forever to lighten the shade. I enjoyed taking a look at people’s easels afterwards and seeing the variety of styles. These events are for all abilities. One of my friends is a painter, and she thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I felt self-conscious about my own work, but my family raved about it, and I’m proud that I finished it. I recommend giving Vine Van Gogh a try. Pricing is approximately $45, bring your own bottle for the “sip” component, and all painting supplies are included.

cat. Would do best in a home all to herself. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent most of her shelter life in a cage because she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a fan of other cats. Please give her some room to run! Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never eat late night snacks alone again! Lt. Danny; ADOPTED!!! Jasmine; 9-year old female. This unique looking feline loves humans but would rather not have to deal w/other cats, she wants to be the only one receiving your love! FOR ADOPTION: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Copperâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sweet Creamâ&#x20AC;? & â&#x20AC;&#x153;Williamâ&#x20AC;?; Copper (big, copper boy w/marbleized swirl pattern) & Sweet Cream (petite cream color girl) were found together when they were feral. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now tame & oh, so sweet! William is especially shy. Perfect scenario is if all 3 could be adopted together as they support one another. If interested in just Copper & Sweet Cream or only William, please let me know! For more information about these wonderful cats, please email carriechapman@gmail.com or call (347)258-2725.
