Columbia County Fair continues The Columbia County Fair kicked off on Wednesday, August 27, for a six-day run through Monday, September 1. The big fair that moved up to Chatham after a decade in Hudson over 160 years ago has a glorious treestudded campus that’s the envy of other fairgrounds. The number of farms displaying

livestock and wares is always impressive. Best of all, the smaller-scale bits of entertainment, from countywide talent shows to pig races and dog shows, are every bit as much a crowd-pleaser as such big-ticket names as this year’s headliners, the Oak Ridge Boys, or the inevitable demo derby nights. – Paul Smart Columbia County Fair, August 27-September 1, $10/$12, Route 66/Church Street, Chatham; (518) 392-2121, www. columbiafair.com.

JOHN HALL SPIED US and carried his plate of food over to the open window. “We’re your number-one fans,” we screamed down on his head, holding up one finger each. “Looks like two of you to me,” he said, chewing, holding up two fingers, and that was that.

My First Rock Concert by JohnB, or: Orleans performs at Opus 40

M

y friend’s first rock concert was Air Supply with his Mom at West Point’s Eisenhower Theater. A concert, yes; but not precisely rock, you say? He recalls it as traumatically loud: a permanent loud recorded till this day in the striations of his inner ear, a cell-mutating loud like Slayer in Snug Harbor, the sternum-tuned punch of the floor tom alone enough to knock your ticker into arrhythmia. As the permed Australians melted face, singing something about wanting to do something to every woman in the world, he sheltered from the visible waves of volume in his mother’s arms. She was every woman in the world to him. My first, charmed rock concert was my favorite band in the world at the time in a theater in my hometown – a couple floors down, in fact, from my Dad’s office in the Old Main Building on the campus of SUNY-New Paltz. At 12, I was already the kid who could sing you the bassline to every song he knew; but lyrics didn’t matter much to me, and in some ways they still don’t unless they make themselves matter to me, for better or for worse. A lot of my favorite bands weren’t necessarily the best with words. This band was Orleans. Maybe to you Orleans is just another lite-rock laughingstock, an era-bound abomination of sensitive beards and flare jeans, helium harmonies, cheesy amore and didactic post-hippie politics slathered atop a bad coke habit. Laugh now or forever hold your peace, ’cause you’re about to get schooled on the subject of this miscategorized, unfairly maligned and (potentially) genuinely important American rock band. They had the talent to contend for rock Rushmore. Fear not, my hipster friends: We will also get to the

part about how Orleans really had only themselves to blame for their own critical and artistic marginalization. Orleans was funky. Orleans understood funk’s first principles of space and counterpoint in a way that few funky white bands did or do. Orleans featured two dazzlingly good electric guitarists relating to each other in ways that transcended the standard lead and rhythm roles (similar and every bit equal to Barrere and George in Little Feat, or the Manuel/Hudson/Robertson latticework of the early Band records, or even Television’s Verlaine and Lloyd – and yes, I did just say that, oh hipster friends). Bassist Lance Hoppen and the late drummer Wells Kelly (later augmented by local hero Jerry Marotta) formed a crisp, motile rhythm

They weren’t the only band to marry funk and R & B with the mature adult pop of the bearded ’70s, but they were one of the first

section that honored the spaces in a way that made a lasting and musically valuable impression on me. For while Orleans may never be hip, space is always hip, so it was a good tip. Orleans at their live best sounded more like Stevie Wonder on “You Haven’t Done Nothin’” than anything Air Supply or Pablo Cruise could have ever managed. Back to those guitars – those spider y Stratocasters, to be precise. The band’s main man, John Hall, was one of the best and most liberated lead guitarists of his era: a guy who had a Hendrixian fire, feel and swagger in his phrasing, expanded past blues by his schooled sense of melody and harmony. You could listen to Hall jam all night, truly; but it was the second lead guitarist and second lead vocalist, the late Larry Hoppen, whose lyrical “melodic statement” solos were more likely to define the tunes in which they occurred. The dual lead and the lead duel are a couple of artifacts best left in the ’70s from whence they came, but the Hall/ Hoppen duel-to-dual solos on the song “Waking and Dreaming” are better, I am telling you, than the ones by Walsh and Felder on “Hotel California.” Posterity will not agree, but posterity is pretty gullible. They played all my favorites that night: “Please Be There,” “Two-Faced World,” “Let There Be Music,” “Half Moon,” “Cold Spell.” After the show, thoroughly jazzed by what we had seen, Patty Sue Bunt and I went around the back of Old Main (as Campus School kids, we knew our way around) to see if we could find the band. We did. Lying on our bellies on the grass and peering through some narrow ventilation windows, we spied on a minor but fully established touring rock

ne of the most important and influential indie-rock bands of the last few decades, the Hold Steady (above), will be headlining Brooklyn@Belleayre, a handful of hip downstate bands, at the Belleayre Music Festival on Saturday, August 30 starting at 6 p.m. Craig Finn’s impassioned bar-rock band has long supplied the subdued indie scene with its Springsteen inflammations, its bard-rock ambitions and its beat narratives. Finn has always been up to the challenge as a poet and as a performer. The Hold Steady are not for everyone, but their fans are every bit as loyal and inspired as the Boss’s. Joining the Hold Steady for this multi-stage date will be Brooklyn up-and-comers Big Data, Lily & the Parlour Tricks and Joni Fatora. Tickets for the Brooklyn@Bellearye range from $66, $56 and $46 for pavilion seating to $26 for the lawn. For tickets or information, contact the Belleayre Music Festival at (800) 942-6904, extension 1344, or visit http://belleayremusic.org. Belleayre Music Festival concerts are held on the grounds of Belleayre Mountain on Route 28 in Highmount.

Then the bearded John Hall spied us and carried his plate of food over to the open window. “We’re your number-one fans,” we screamed down on his head, holding up one finger each. “Looks like two of you to me,” he said, chewing, holding up two fingers, and that was that. John Hall was cool, easy with a couple of pre-teens. He was there for you, a good guy, the kind of guy you could really vote for. The desolate emptiness I felt later that night has defined every celebrity encounter I have ever had and is probably the reason I never seek them out or do interviews. The greatness of Orleans is not an easy sell these days. A fair bit of their output is prom-ballad, clinical yacht rock, and their vocals (virtuosic in their own right) are unfortunately period-stamped and dominated by the distinctive yes-pleaseor-no-thanks tenor of the Hoppen family voice. Funny that when I, a genuine fan, think of Orleans, the sound I can’t shake from my head is the rich baritone of the late Wells Kelly taking his one lead vocal turn per album: “Sunset,” “The Bum” and, most of all, the beautiful light pop tune “Mountain.” What an odd thrill that voice was and still is to me. Orleans will never quite get the respect and position of privilege, the recognition for innovation, that they arguably deserve. They weren’t the only band to marry funk and R & B with the mature adult pop of the bearded ’70s, but they were one of the first and – as a band and as players, though maybe not as writers – one of the very best. All they really needed to fare better with posterity was a dash of weirdness, a little nasty streak, some stubbornness to resist to the prevailing yacht-rock values of the day. You would think they might have learned some of that cultural contrarianism from Woodstock forbears like Helm and

Danko, who had so strenuously declined the prevailing hippie values of their own day, and whom Orleans surely must have known around town in the mid-’70s. But for whatever reason, Orleans kept it sweet as can be. Thus, you will have to wade through some period stuff to get to what I am talking about, but it is there, and it is worth the effort, for you and for the legacy of a really good band. Orleans performs at Opus 40 in Saugerties this Saturday, August 30 at 5 p.m. Tickets cost $40 at the gate and $30 in advance, available at Opus 40,

Town and Country Liquor in Saugerties, Mother Earth in Kingston, Saugerties and Poughkeepsie, Convenient Deli in New Paltz and Headstock in Woodstock. VIP reservations, at $75, include a signed CD, a meet-and-greet with the band and VIP parking and seating. For more

The revitalized Colony Café in Woodstock continues to challenge with its adventurous and high-quality programming. On Thursday, August 28, the Café presents a night of ecstatic dance and trance music organized by master drummer Jerry Marotta and intended as a prelude to the Omega Institute’s upcoming Ecstatic Om Weekend. This is no routine ecstatic drum circle, though its aims may be somewhat similar. First, Marotta and his cohorts are worldclass players. While Marotta has played with countless heavies (Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Sarah McLachlan and more), he may be best-known for his critical role in the important worldfusion rock of Peter Gabriel’s essential solo albums, including Gabriel’s historic third record (“Games without Frontiers,” “Biko”) and its follow-up, Security (“Shock the Monkey”): records that in their own way combine pop with the pursuit of heightened and technologicalenabled trancelike states. Second, though Marotta is a fine acoustic drummer, he is no pure traditionalist. The veteran player embraces the electronic tools that have redefined dance and trance and incorporates them with traditional disciplines for this event. Marotta’s collaborators on the 28th include the world percussionist and session player Arjun Bruggeman, who is acclaimed for his unique hybrid of Eastmeets-West rhythms and his work with Krishna Das. Guitarist Marc Shulman is a first-call session player amongst such singer/songwriters as Suzanne Vega, Part Larkin, Jonatha Brooke and more. An electronic music deejay originally from Los Angeles, Van Bolle (also known as DJ Caviar) has been involved in the rave and deejay scene since its inception in the early ‘90s.

Tom Pacheco at Empire State Railway Museum in Phoenicia

The Wall Street Jazz Festival co-founders John Bilotti and Peggy Stern (above) are determined to keep the festival accessible and grassroots, elegant in its presentation and free.

The intimate, historic nature of the Phoenicia train station – the Empire State Railway Museum, as it is officially known – makes for a beautiful venue for a small concert. Flying Cat Music has been doing just that, promoting shows there for a number of years. And, as it has for the last several, it’ll be presenting Tom Pacheco, whose legendary hand has penned thousands of songs over a career that goes back to the early 1960s, for two shows, both at 7:30 p.m., one on Saturday, August 30 and the other on Sunday, August 31. The Empire State Railway Museum is located at 70 Lower High Street in Phoenicia. It has been a slow summer for Pacheco, as he gathers himself for what has become sort of a semiannual tour of Scandinavia, which he’ll begin on October 16. “This will

be my first show since the Colony in May,” he said. “It’ll be a solo show, and I’ll play a lot of songs I’ve never played onstage before. Some I’ve recorded, but never played. I have a set list of 70 songs I’ll be working from, judging from the audience’s vibe. And I’ll do a few favorites.” He’s sure to include some songs from a new album that he’ll be releasing as he tours the wild Norway north. “It’s called Boom Town. It’s a play on the Baby Boomer generation and on fracking. It starts out in Greenwich Village in 1966, rolls through the years, through our generation and ends in the distant future, searching for another planet to live on.” The album is getting some play from local deejays, as he has sent out some copies that are still without a cover and liner notes. It should be available around here by November or so, he says. Pacheco has been called a “quintessentially American songwriter” by Dirty Linen magazine and “one of America’s greatest songwriting treasures” by FolkWax, nearly 50 years and two

he Wall Street Jazz Festival began in 2004 when John Bilotti and Peggy Stern were attending a jazz festival and noticed a conspicuous absence of women in the lineup. “What’s wrong with this picture?” they say gave way to “What are we going to do about it?” Thus was born a jazz festival in which all the leaders are women. The Wall Street Jazz Festival present traditionalists as well as progressives, local players as well as out-of-towners. Bilotti and Stern were determined to keep the festival accessible and grassroots, elegant in its presentation and free. The festival was made possible in part through a grant from the Dutchess County Arts Council, administrator of public funds through the New York State Council on the Arts’ Decentralization Program. The Wall Street Jazz Festival takes place on Saturday, August 30 on the corner of Wall Street and North Front. Performers include the Laura Dubin Piano Trio at 5 p.m., All-Star All-Play at 6 p.m., the Virginia Mayhew Quartet at 7 p.m., the Roberta Piket Sextet at 8 p.m. and Estrella Salsa at 9 p.m.

Joe Fiedler’s Big Sackbut plays Quinn’s in Beacon on Labor Day Go see Joe Fiedler’s Big Sackbut at Quinn’s in Beacon on Monday, September 1 at 8 p.m. This wonderful, trombone-heavy jazz brass quartet strikes the perfect balance between the serious challenges of jazz and playful, colorful and engaging entertainment. Their swinging but ultraprecise counterpoint is part New Orleans backline, part minimalist polyrhythmic pattern study à la Glass or Reich. Then the solos start: seldom one at a time, but birds-in-the-trees

conversational solos that remind me of John Zorn’s wonderful dialogues with Dave Douglas in Masada. Fiedler is a spectacular arranger, and in the end, 2013’s Sackbut Stomp, for all its stomp and swing, comes off more as a work of serious chamber music, not so much jazz as a modernist classical commentary thereupon. Quinn’s is located at 330 Main Street in Beacon. For more information, visit www. quinnsbeacon.com or call (845) 202-7447. – John Burdick

FESTIVAL

Celtic conclave Ireland’s Ambassador to the US & Black 47 headline Hooley on the Hudson in Kingston

T

he Ulster County chapter of the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) will once again sponsor the Hooley on the Hudson in Kingston – a family-friendly festival celebrating all things Irish – on Sunday, August 31 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. This will be the 13th go-round for the festivities, all of which are free of charge to enjoy. The Hooley is held at Kingston’s T. R. Gallo Memorial Park, where the Irish disembarked more than a century ago to work on the D & H Canal. The events take place on three stages, each with its own emcee kicking off the live entertainment at 11:30 a.m. The Feeney Stage offers local talent, the Tara Stage features national acts and the Spoken Word Stage presents storytelling. The Tara Stage will feature the New York Show Band with Tommy Flynn, the Andy Cooney Band, BarleyJuice and the New York City-based Irish rock band Black 47, performing for one of the last times before they disband later this year. The overtly political group’s musical influences include reggae, hip-hop, folk and jazz, and the topics of their songs range from the Northern Ireland conflict to civil rights and urban unrest issues in contemporary New York. The lineup for local talent on the Feeney Stage includes Vince Fisher and Tommy Kiernan, the Ulster County AOH Division 1 Pipes and Drums, Jimmy Walsh, the Celtic Heels School of Irish Dance, the Quinn Brothers, the Solas An Lae IrishAmerican dance troupe, Mc Groovin and Mac Cana. On the Spoken Word Stage will be Karen Pillsworth, Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi, Jim Hawkins and Kate Danaher, until 5:30 p.m. when traditional Irish singer Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhride, from County Donegal, performs. The day before the Hooley, on Saturday, August 30, Ireland’s Ambassador to the US Anne Anderson will be welcomed to Kingston with a reception held Ireland’s Ambassador to the in her honor from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Scheduled US Anne Anderson speakers at the reception include congressman Chris Gibson, assemblyman Kevin Cahill, Ulster County executive Mike Hein, state senator Cecilia Tkaczyk and Kingston mayor Shayne Gallo, actor and author Malachy McCourt, Nancy Carey Cassidy (daughter of former New York State governor Hugh Carey) and Pulitzer Prizewinning author and journalist William Kennedy. Anderson has served as Ireland’s Ambassador to the United Nations, the European Union, France and Monaco, and is the first woman to hold each of these positions. With the goal of encouraging tourism and cultural exchange between Ireland and the US, she will travel from Washington, DC to Kingston in support of the construction of the Irish Cultural Center on Abeel Street in the city’s Rondout District: a neighborhood that was a melting pot of European immigrants. Anderson will raise the Irish flag on Sunday at 10:45 a.m. to mark the dedication of the building site and then march at the Hooley with a “Parade of Dignitaries” at 11 a.m. The Irish Cultural Center will be built on land formerly occupied by the headquarters of the D & H Canal Corporation, the site where, for decades, Irish, German, Polish and Italian immigrants walked up Company Hill Path to collect their

Irish author, playwright and satellite radio host Larry Kirwan (above) playing with his band Black 47. The group was formed in 1989, and it takes its name from a traditional term for the summer of 1847, the worst year of the Great Irish Famine.

DON’T GET ME WRONG; Boyhood is an impressive cinematic experience. I’m awed by the commitment of the director and the four main stars to the project.

Growing up together

Linklater’s Boyhood is an ambitious experiment in filmmaking that mostly pays off

B

eing a person who resists a language change that seems to result more from laziness about remembering things like irregular verb endings than from dynamic growth and evolution, I get called a grammar Nazi. As such, I have my usage pet peeves, and one of them is abuse of the word “unique.” It grates on me whenever someone praises something as “more unique” than something else, or even “most unique.” Since the word means “one-of-a-kind,” either something is unique or it isn’t. Period. Comparatives don’t work here. A lot of people are using the word unique to describe Richard Linklater’s new movie Boyhood, which tracks the dynamics of a dysfunctional family over a period of 12 years using the same core group of actors. It isn’t, by the strict definition. Feature films following the same character played by the same actor growing up over time have been done before; Francois Truffaut’s Antoine Doinel series and Satyajit Ray’s Apu trilogy come readily to mind. And the granddaddy of longitudinal filmmaking, Michael Apted’s Up series of documentaries, started following a group of British schoolchildren at the age of 7 in 1964 and is still going strong, with 56 Up released in 2012. Cramming all that footage into

Ellar Coltrane in Boyhood a single film is certainly unusual, but not unique; Steve James’s Hoop Dreams followed high school basketball players over a five-year period, for one example. And yet the rave reviews for Boyhood keep coming in, from professional film critics and folks on the street alike, saying things like “You’ve never seen anything like this movie!” Some are calling it a masterpiece, and it seems fair to predict that it will prove to be the work by which Linklater (Slacker, Dazed and Confused, School of Rock, Before Sunrise/Sunset/ Midnight) will best be remembered. But I’m not sure that I’m quite ready to jump on the Best Picture of 2014 bandwagon just yet. Don’t get me wrong; Boyhood is an impressive cinematic experience. I’m awed by the commitment of the director and the four main stars to the project. It’s a miracle worthy of the Seven Princes of

Serendip that Ellar Coltrane, selected at age 7 for the role of the film’s protagonist, Mason Evans, Jr., grew so gracefully into a confident, talented and nuanced actor. But the movie has its weaknesses, some of them fairly glaring. T h e performance of Lorelei Linklater as Ma s o n’s slightly older sibling Samantha fails to convey any significant character growth over the 12 years. Miscast from the get-go, insofar as she does not physically resemble the rest of her onscreen family, the director’s daughter starts out playing a one-dimensional, selfish, bratty big sister and ends up nearly three hours later still playing a one-dimensional, selfish, bratty big sister. The family stresses that the siblings face

together – largely due to their lonely Mom’s unfortunate tendency to marry men with substance abuse issues – do very little to forge any bond of empathy or solidarity between Mason and Samantha. People with siblings know that such relationships do tend to evolve over time, but we don’t see anything here that looks familiar. Much more believable and interesting to follow are the separate tracks of young Mason’s relationships with his parents, and later his stepparents. Patricia Arquette totally nails the insecure-but-determined Olivia, whose intelligence and hard work pave her way from borderline poverty and single motherhood through a return to college to a rewarding academic career and the respect of her colleagues. But she misses a lot of what her withdrawn, sensitive son is going through while showering approval on her straight-A-student daughter, and she repeatedly makes bad choices in men while trying to provide a stable family structure for her kids. When we first meet Ethan Hawke as her recent ex-husband Mason, Sr., he seems like the nadir of the sort of bad choice that Olivia needs to escape. He’s a slacker by inclination, but a philosophical one, doling out advice to his kids that gets better as he matures – notably when he tells Mason, Jr. that the key to getting along with girls is to ask them a lot of questions and actually listen to their answers. Hawke gets most of the movie’s

It’s certainly a film that will get talked about around the water cooler, analyzed in cinema history courses of the future and maybe even heaped with Oscars

Real to reel Free film festival unspools Labor Day weekend at Woodstock Museum in “Saugerstock”

A

s summer winds down, a mid-Hudson culture vulture’s thoughts turn to the wonders that await us in the fall. High on that list is the Woodstock Film Festival (WFF), October 15-19. With its diversity of offerings and its sustained focus on movies that fall outside the mainstream, it has earned its sobriquet of “Fiercely Independent.” But part of its broader appeal is undeniably the frisson that comes from seeing certified movie stars walking around downtown Woodstock as if they were…you know, real people. No matter how much we say that we love provocative, cutting-edge indie films, the top draws at WFF – the ones that you can’t get tickets to, unless you pay close attention to its website and make your move quickly once the lineup is announced – still tend to be offerings that feature known quantities by way of actors and directors. They may be indie Hollywood, but they’re still Hollywood. So you wait too long to get tickets to the most popular screenings at WFF, and you find yourself poking around in obscure corners of the filmic universe, catching an oddball documentary here or there, a fiction feature by a Third World filmmaker, or a wildly diverting program of animation. By default, you touch the true heart of independent cinema: the roiling cauldron of ideas propelled more by a filmmaker’s passion than by adequate funding. In the process you encounter topics and points of view that you knew nothing about before, and you add new artist names to your future watch list. At its most challenging and useful, that’s what a film festival is really all about: discovery.

The festival’s theme this weekend is “Real,” and participants will come from Italy, Germany, Sweden, Turkey and Taiwan as well as the US.

Meanwhile, laboring in the long shadows of WFF, a similar event has been going on nearby in Saugerstock that foregoes the glitz and glam altogether and cuts right to the chase of what’s most valuable about such events. It’s the Woodstock Museum’s annual Film Festival, and it unspools this weekend. The festival’s theme this year is “Real,” and participants will come from Italy, Germany, Sweden, Turkey and Taiwan as well as the US. You can catch all or part of the 15th annual Woodstock Museum Film Festival for free. Screenings begin at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 29 to 31, and run from 12:30 to 6 p.m. on Monday, September 1. You can even make arrangements to camp on the site and enjoy the swimming pool if you’d like to spend the whole weekend. Originally, the Woodstock Museum Film Festival was hosted by Woodstock’s Town Hall, but in more recent years the films have been shown in two indoor theaters at the museum itself. For many, the filmmakers will be present, and question-andanswer sessions and audience critiques will follow the screenings. Filmmakers from Australia and New Zealand are particularly well-represented, reflecting the sister-city relationship between Woodstock and the Australian community of Nimbin. In fact, the first screening following the opening ceremony on Friday evening will be a documentary by David Lowe about the activism of

best laugh lines, while over the 12 years, he earns more of his family’s respect – and of the viewer’s affection as well. Most of the failings of Boyhood as a moviegoing experience derive directly from its audaciously telescoped narrative structure. For one thing, it’s very long – 164 minutes – and you’ll notice it. The deliberate pacing may be appropriate to the form, but some viewers may find their mind wandering about two-thirds of the way in. It could have been more tightly edited. There are a few scenes depicting milestones of growing up male in America – like an encounter with bullies in a school lavatory, and an introduction during middle school by some older boys to drinking and boasting about sexual exploits – that feel wooden and obligatory, like Linklater is running through a checklist. Coltrane is a wonder throughout, but he shines best when either Arquette or Hawke is onscreen alongside him, bringing a naturalistic approach to their portrayal of flawedbut-decent characters and touchy family dynamics that need constant renegotiation. All these reservations aside, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Boyhood to any cinema fan whose attention span can cope with something a little more demanding than action movies. It’s certainly a film that will get talked about around the water cooler, analyzed in cinema history courses of the future and maybe even heaped with Oscars

next year. You might recognize facets of your own family in it. Just don’t expect a unique level of perfection. – Frances Marion Platt To read Frances Marion Platt’s previous movie reviews & other film-related pieces, visit our Almanac Weekly website at HudsonValleyAlmanacWeekly.com and click on the “film” tab.

Dead Man Walking screening opens Civil Rights photo exhibit at Bethel Woods The Museum at Bethel Woods will exhibit “Speak Truth to Power,” an exhibit paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The exhibit will be on view from Thursday, August 28 through Wednesday, December 31. The photographs from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights depict portraits of human rights defenders from around the world. Admission costs $5. The exhibit includes 50 portraits of leaders and activists shot by Pulitzer Prizewinning photographer Eddie Adams alongside interviews conducted by Kerry Kennedy, president of the RFK Center. Among the activists celebrated are Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama and Elie Wiesel. An opening-night screening of the film Dead Man Walking, starring Susan

environmental performance artist Benny Zable, who also happens to be Nimbin’s official ambassador to Woodstock. Zable will be on hand for a discussion afterwards. While all tending to reflect in some way the museum’s interest in the worldviews and values espoused by the circa-1969 Woodstock Nation, the fare at the Woodstock Museum Film Festival spans a wide variety of form, style and length. Unsurprisingly, documentaries are prominent, with a comprehensive four-part overview of American Freethought, from Thomas Paine through the Abolition and women’s suffrage movements to the mid-20th century, arguably the centerpiece of this year’s festival. The separate segments of Rod Bradford’s humanist historical opus will be shown over the course of the weekend. Other notable docs include Rise of the Eco-Warriors, Cathy Henkel’s account of activists fighting to save both orangutan and indigenous human habitat in Borneo, which will be shown on Saturday; and Not My Life, Robert Bilheimer’s exposé of global human trafficking, scheduled for Sunday. There’s quite a bit of abstract art film on the menu, as well as animation that ranges from the erotic metamorphoses of Ying-Fang Shen’s The Tale of the Day on Friday to Lorenzo Berghella’s dystopian political fantasy Too Bad on Sunday to the kid-friendly whimsy of Stephen Baker’s I Need My Monster on Monday. Fiction films both short and long are also on offer, perhaps the most intriguing feature-length narrative being Faysal Soysal’s Crossroads. Largely through dreams, it tells the story of a Turkish youth who accidentally causes the death of his brother’s girlfriend, seeks oblivion from his guilt by exhuming mass graves in Bosnia and eventually falls in love with a psychologist who tries to help him overcome his trauma and reconcile with his brother. Its Monday screening is followed by Drown the Alarm, Mitchell Klebanoff ’s global-warming-themed parody of a Nicki Minaj music video. That’s just a taste of what’s onscreen this weekend at the Woodstock Museum Film Festival: an array that might fairly be termed “Even More Fiercely Independent” than WFF. The indoor/outdoor event will also feature music, a bonfire and light shows with Jim C. Early arrivals can take museum tours from 12 noon to 4 p.m. for the usual entry fee of $7 for adults, $3.50 for kids under age 12. You can picnic on the grounds or get a homemade meal or snack at the on-site café. Lots more information about the movies being screened and a full festival schedule are available online at http://woodstockmuseum.com/2014_film_festival.htm.

Do you have any tugboat fans in your family? See if you can find all 25 painted tugboats along Route 9W in Port Ewen by the end of August, at which point they will be moved to Headless Horseman for Tugfest, where they will be auctioned off. For a glimpse of some real tugboats, follow the trail along the creek at Port Ewen’s Sleightsburgh Park. This short walk is located across the water from where a couple of tugs are docked. The park has benches, a porta-john and easy parking, but since it’s also a popular boat launch and fishing area, it’s a good spot to watch boats but not so much of a play park. For the more adventurous among you, follow the creek trail as it bends right into the brush and follow it over and under grasses and fallen branches all the way out to the end of the spit for a sweet view of the wider river. I understand that at low tide you can walk out even further. Sleightsburgh Park is part of the Esopus Explorer Walking Program, which grants an Esopus Explorers’ badge to participants who walk any five trails in the network.

Larry Kirwan, lead singer of Black 47, once said, “I suppose the best pint is in the place where your friends are,” and here’s why so many of your friends will be at this annual family-friendly Irish festival: It’s free; Irish dance performances; live music; storytelling; and children’s activities. Plus, it’s one of the last gigs of Black 47, who will disband in November after 25 years. Hooley on the Hudson takes place on Sunday, August 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. at T. R. Gallo Memorial Park on the Rondout in Kingston. For more information, call (845) 338-6622 or visit www.ulsteraoh.com.

Kids’ Almanac thanks Jennifer Castle for supplying writing prompts during the month of August. Jennifer Castle is the author of the Young Adult novels The Beginning of After and You Look Different in Real Life, both from HarperCollins.

Remember to post your piece on the Almanac Weekly Facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/almanacweekly/287633831270607. “Journaling is where we really figure out the stories inside and around us, and where we are all writers, for ourselves. I believe everyone can and should do it! These prompts are de-

formation that you bring through the door.” At the Storm King Art Center, you can’t help but collect information simply by entering this bucolic art escape; and on Sunday, August 31 at 1 p.m., Booker’s children-and-families workshop is a chance to add a handson element to it all. The workshop is included in the admission, which costs $15 for adults, $12 for seniors age 65 and over, $8 for children 5 to 18 and is free for children 4 and under.

Music under the Stars at West Point A cruelty of Labor Day weekend is the ultimate finality with which one inventories the pleasures of summer: Did you do everything that you had hoped for? Well, the West Point Band’s Music under the Stars event is an outing that’s fabulous on its own, but is also sure to check off a couple of important boxes, in case you missed any of these: visit to iconic Hudson Valley historic site; open-air picnic; live outdoor music; gorgeous river views; and fireworks. And it’s free! On Sunday, August 31 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., head over to West Point’s Trophy Point Amphitheater with your blanket, family, friends and a picnic. Also bring government-issued identification for anyone in your party over 16 years of age, and patience as you wait your turn for security at the entrance gates.

signed to help you start, get back into or freshen up a habit of regular journaling. But first, some tips: Rather than using a fancy blank journal – way too much pressure for the words to be fancy, too – buy a cheap marbled composition or spiral notebook and make it your own with stickers, collage or drawings on the cover. Set rules for yourself, like you will write for ten minutes straight or fill up an entire page or write on Tuesdays. Keep the pen moving. Resist the urge to cross out. And always: The less you think, the better.” Now: Look back on your day. What is one thing that you wish you’d done differently – a decision you made or an action you took, turning left instead of right in the car? Write down what might have happened if things had gone another way. Don’t let reality hem you in; let your Parallel Universe Day take you as far and crazy as it wants to. – Erica Chase-Salerno

ALMANAC WEEKLY

“ONE REASON I MADE FRAGMENTS was I didn’t have an eight-foot kiln. The limitation gave me freedom. I remade the torso, arm and head until I could get what I liked. I liked the spaces between. People focus on the fragment, but for me the spaces were really important.

Visions of Mary New film about Mary Frank at Upstate Films in Woodstock on Sunday

M

ary Frank has been making art for more than six decades. Her exploration of wood, plaster, wax, clay, monotype, ink, cutout paper, paint and photography has yielded a rich body of work. She sculpts, draws, paints, prints or cuts out of paper archetypal figures that raise their arms, crouch, leap, recline, stride purposefully or clutch their breasts, as well as spectral robed figures, animals, plants and architectural fragments. The figures are depicted in rugged, elemental landscapes, which themselves may be contained within silhouetted figures or heads, suggesting spirit worlds and states of consciousness. Rooted in myth and imbued with a dreamlike logic, her narratives explore the themes of loss, pain, despair, love, hope, survival, the fragility of life and the cycles of renewal. Her protagonists are often portrayed in motion, emphasizing the quest, rather than their origin or destination. A man drawn in black ink races through spiky clouds formed of actual milkweed seeds while a storm, suggested by some thick strokes of green paint, rages at his back. Two stick figures, one close to the viewer, the other distant, bend toward each other over a rock chasm, unified in a broken arc even as they never touch. A couple embraces beneath an ink drawing of a soaring raptor. Tension is created in her sculptures, works on paper and paintings (some consist of triptychs, with one narrative literally opening up to another) through the juxtaposition of opposites, such as near and far, body and the void – the figure isolated in space and space carved out of the figure are common motifs – flatness and three-dimensional form, stasis and flight, substance and shadow, release and confinement. Forms merge and metamorphose into each other: A human head sprouts wings, a portrait of a man is superimposed on a buffalo’s body, a woman’s outstretched arms leaf into branches, in a replay of the Daphne myth. The artwork itself is not easily categorized, and sculpture and painting are played off each other: Floral patterns and tiny figures are etched and printed into the curving surfaces of her clay figures and layers of paint cover the canvas or paper in a thick sediment. The expressive power and raw emotion of Frank’s work emanate from this inventive use of materials. The transparency of her process and the sense of play – so beautifully conveyed in her most recent body of work, a series of photographs of tableaulike arrangements of her sculptures, paintings, cutouts and found objects – invite the viewer’s participation. The fragment points to the whole, enticing the imagination. Born in 1933 in London, Mary Frank lived in a series of children’s boarding homes outside London to escape the Blitz before moving to New York City at age 7 with her mother, a painter. She studied

dance with Martha Graham, married photographer Robert Frank at age 17, had two children and began making art. Her first pieces were carved wood sculptures depicting figures and animals inspired in part by the ancient Egyptian works at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Despite the fact that figuration was out of sync with the fashion for abstraction and she was a woman artist in a pre-feminist era, Frank’s first solo exhibition in the early 1960s attracted notice. She went on to have a long, fruitful career, exhibiting at major museums and receiving numerous prestigious awards, including two Guggenheim fellowships. She has been the subject of several books and essays by distinguished art historians, including Hayden Herrera, and illustrated many books (including Shadows of Africa,

written by Peter Matthiessen). For years she has been represented by the Elena Zang Gallery, located in Woodstock, and D. C. Moore Gallery, in New York City. Now there’s a film, to be shown at Upstate Films in Woodstock on Sunday, August 31 at 2:30 p.m., followed by a Q&A with Frank and director John Cohen and a reception at the Elena Zang Gallery. Titled Visions of Mary Frank, the film was made by Frank’s longtime friend John Cohen and recounts Frank’s early years in

Greenwich Village, which was the center of the New York art world. Reminiscent of Georgia O’Keefe decades earlier, she was much-photographed; the film shows portraits by Walker Evans, Max Kozlof, Edouard Boubat, Edward Steichen and other well-known photographers. It captures the freewheeling excitement of the era, with footage of Mary chatting with Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac on a streetcorner and photos from a costume party in her loft.

But Visions of Mary Frank is not so much a biopic as a paean to her work. From the beginning, her motivation was to “invent a way to get to the mystery,” as she puts it. “I never had the feeling I could make Art,” she says in the film. “I could make something that at best would come close to the feeling of an experience.” The contemporaries who influenced her, a few of whom she pays tribute to in the film, are lesser-known, even obscure colleagues and friends, rather than the big names

I did a demonstration with two women from Kenya in front of the UN cooking meat, fish, vegetables, bread and cake and purifying water using 17 solar cookers. There were people from 65 countries watching with tears streaming down faces.

that dominate the art history books. The film opens with a lovely pan of a large clay female head poised on the roof garden of her New York loft. The repose of the meditative figure is intensified by the contrast with the cluttered urban skyline. (Indeed, the movement of the camera seems to deepen the mysterious charge of her sculptures: monumental, eternal presences whose stillness fairly vibrates.) The camera circles around the masklike head, which is revealed to be truncated; instead of a rounded form, the opposite side consists of a flat plane, in which is gouged a swirling shape, a negative space signifying the animation of invisible thought – or possibly a deep wound, stamp or sign. A hand caresses the face as we hear, and then see, Frank singing a French folksong: an intimate, childlike moment utterly at odds with the vast and impersonal cityscape. Interspersed with interviews of the artist in her studios in New York and Lake Hill, where she and her second husband, musicologist, writer and pianist Leo Treitler, spend half the year, is footage that lovingly records her work and process, accompanied by a soundtrack whose sources, like those of her art, span the globe and the centuries (it includes selections from Bach, Thelonious Monk, Japanese traditional music and Portuguese Fado). Almanac Weekly’s Lynn Woods recently

visited Mary at her Lake Hill home and studio to interview her about the film, as well as her art, life and activism (for the last 17 years, Frank has been promoting the use of solar cookers in the developing world through her work with Solar Cookers International: http:// solarcookers.org.  Drawings and paintings lean against the wall and invade the floor, on which is painted a large blue head in profile, an orange boat, mountains and other images that appear in some of her photographs. Several shadow pieces are taped to the window overlooking the garden; in these, cuts made with scissors into the white paper catch the light, resulting in lines of pulsating luminosity describing an antelope, a seated nude, a cloud-ringed sky. Frank flips through prints of her photos, in which small and large nude and robed figures, animals and birds, both painted and sculpted in clay, monumental doorways, caves and mountains, and actual natural objects and materials, such as stones, leaves, twigs and water, are arranged in mystical narratives that play with space, light and shadow, texture and scale. In the garden, behind a mass of flowers, one glimpses a recumbent life-sized bronze nude. From one side, the figure looks shattered; grass grows between the interstices of the fragments. Viewed from the opposite side, however, the figure is

imbued with tremendous energy and seems to be rising from the ground. In another nook, a bronze masklike half-face peers from behind the greenery. Perched on a dilapidated table is a small clay slab, sculpted into a wave, from which emerges a standing figure, one foot forward, in the pose of an ancient Egyptian funerary statue; the motif, which was inspired by Frank’s drawings of swimmers and sunbathers on the beach at Cape Cod, imbues the familiar pose with new life and meaning, as if the statue, after being frozen for 4,000 years, has finally been released into movement, continuing its stride. The following conversation took place in her studio: Who is John Cohen and how did the film come about? Dee Dee Halleck, a video artist and political activist, started making a film a long time ago. John Cohen, who has made numerous documentaries in Peru and Appalachia, has known my work since the 1950s. He lived next door to me when I was married to Robert Frank and knew my children. He brought my kids up on a roof so they could dance to a guy playing the guitar and mouth organ and singing. He looked 17 and his name was Bob Zimmerman. John married Pete Seeger’s half-sister and played with the New Lost City Ramblers. He’s 81, but performs around the country playing with his band the Velocity Ram-

What was it like viewing a film of your life? It’s John Cohen’s film and view of my work. There are parts of my life I can’t bear to look at and other things I wished were in the film. He didn’t make a biopic, but something stronger and much more personal. A lot of people seem very moved by it.   You were married to Robert Frank, the photographer. Was his photography an influence?  I was only 15 when I met him, and he had an amazing eye, which influenced me. My mother was an artist, so I had always looked at art, but his view was different.   You studied briefly with two big names, Hans Hoffmann and Max Beckmann. What was each man like, and what did you learn from them?  I studied with Max Beckmann at the American Art School on 133rd Street. I didn’t realize how great he was until later. He came over and put his adz marks on everybody’s drawing, which made them better. I hardly saw Hoffmann. I took his drawing class very briefly twice and didn’t participate in his critiques. His paintings didn’t interest me much. I was more influenced by the students I met there. One was Jan Müller, who was German and came to America after the war. The Guggenheim had a big show of his work.   When you were living in your downtown loft, Willem de Kooning lived behind you. Did you know him? Was he an influence? I knew him and he was wonderful. If he hadn’t been a painter, he could have been a very good writer. But he was idolized and there was a lot of fawn-

from ideas and working with different materials are very powerful to me; also delving into the material itself, be it clay, ink, paint, or paper. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always about experience, inchoate and not verbalizedâ&#x20AC;Ś I never make the piece I intend to make. Also I draw from my background of looking at a lot of work, including folk, ancient and contemporary art, reading poetry and listening to music.  Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the particular appeal of ancient cultures?     Ancient art, from pre-Columbian to Chinese, is pretty powerful because it covers the vast range of human emotion and expression. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t distinguish between the human being and cosmic forces and animals. Those cultures didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t draw those harsh lines between humans and nature. And look where we are now. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wholeness and richness to those ancient cultures.   Was there an advantage in not going to art school? I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done certain things if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d gone to school. People would say â&#x20AC;&#x153;you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that,â&#x20AC;? but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, so I tried it and I could do it. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a kiln for years and dragged my pieces to be fired in New Rochelle. One reason I made fragments was I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an eight-foot kiln. The limitation gave me freedom. I remade the torso, arm and head until I could get what I liked. I liked the spaces between. People focus on the fragment, but for me the spaces were really important.   Your photographs donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like photographs in the conventional sense. How did they evolve? I started painting images â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a head, mountains, a walled hill, a tree and

ships â&#x20AC;&#x201C; directly on the studio floor for no reason. Then I started putting leaves or sticks from the garden on top of these images, and also small, older sculptures. It was good looking down on the combination of old work and new things. I bought a cheap camera and starting photographing them. Now I use a digital camera. What you see is what I photographed. I like that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open to interpretation and that people can engage. Â Your work often depicts figures in distant space next to a close-up of a face or part of a figure. Such jumps in scale imbue your work with a sense of cosmic depth, as well as intimacy. When I visited the beach at Cape Cod, I used to dig a hole in the sand so

Matthiessen said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mary, anyone who turns a spigot or turns a knob to get water, cook or get heat has no idea of how most of the world lives.â&#x20AC;? my eye level would be low. The lower it was, the more extreme the scale, so a nearby figure would appear huge and a distant figure tinier than normal.  I love your illustrations of animals in Shadows of Africa,  which are Zenlike ink drawings, cutouts, sculptures, and paintings. When did you go to Africa? I never went to Africa, other than Morocco. The Central Park Zoo used to have a gallery, where I showed the work from that book. All my life Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve drawn in zoos and natural history museums, wherever I see animals, and from my head. I met Matthiessen when I was a fellow member of the Academy of Arts and Letters. I told him I had monoprints of snow leopards, so he came to the studio. He influenced me in many ways. He was a great man. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been working with solarcookers.org before I met him, and he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mary, anyone who turns a spigot or turns a knob to get water, cook or get heat has no idea of how most of the world lives. People, birds, fish and animals all need the same thing, which is clean air and water and food.â&#x20AC;? I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realized the immensity of the repercussions when he said that. It was so powerful and clear, and huge numbers of people are finally realizing the urgency of this.    Some of your art has been inspired by the horrors of the Vietnam War, the

Holocaust, environmental degradation and other world traumas. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also been an activist yourself. When did this involvement start? After my son Pablo was born in 1951, I walked with Grace Paley and other women to the UN with our baby carriages to protest the contamination of milk by nuclear fallout. Friends and I carried placards of my work at demonstrations against the Vietnam War and later in protests against the war in Iraq. And I did a poster for the tenth anniversary of the Human Rights Watch. When civil war broke out in El Salvador, Leo, my husband, figured out what US citizens were paying in taxes to have innocent people labeled communists and then killed. After the Archbishop Romero was murdered, along with the ten Jesuit professors from the University of El Salvador and their housekeeper and her daughter, our group established Woodstock as the sister city to the pueblo of El Buen Pastor, population 100. We brought people here and also sent people down there during the war. After the war I went with Leo to El Salvador to witness the first elections. The people were extraordinary. I had never seen community like that before in my life. They had seen all these horrors, and yet were very strong.   How are solar cookers helping the world?  Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saving women and their daughters from being raped. They are the ones collecting firewood in much of South and Central America,  the Near East, Africa and Asia. As deforestation increases, they must walk farther and sleep out in order to get wood, which puts them at greater risk. Half the world cooks with wood. There are many people who have grains, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going hungry because they have no fuel to cook them with. People spend more money on fuel than on food; with a solar cooker, they can afford to get a goat. Also, carbon smoke from wood fires causes pollution and lung cancer.  I proselytize like crazy about this. I did a demonstration with two women from Kenya in front of the UN cooking meat, fish, vegetables, bread and cake and purifying water using 17 solar cookers. There were people from 65 countries watching with tears streaming down faces. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re raising money and awareness. It has taken off.   Do you have a solar cooker? Yes, and I use mine a lot. I just made quinoa and lentils and also have made pulled pork and chicken. It is all delicious.   What is your view about how high technology and the Internet are transforming the world? I think kids now learn it in utero. The word about solar cookers is getting around through the Internet. However, the belief that high technology can solve all human problems is not true, because half the world has no electricity.   Do you have hope for the future? The biggest challenge is overpopulation, which is the least talked-about because the subject is taboo for the major religions. But if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not addressed, efforts to save the environment will be severely limited. Despite all the horrors, I am stunned by how people all over the world are doing extraordinary, creative things. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful being in Woodstock, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a vibrant community.   Do you have any upcoming shows? Yes. From September 26 to Janu-

As always, the wares on sale by more than 250 craftspeople will span every imaginable category of handmade goods: pottery, wooden bowls, metal implements, quilts, jewelry, leather goods, furniture, clothing, toys, lamps, wall hangings, picture frames, pens, journals, brooms, figurines, clocks…you name it. There’s also a food tent with gourmet consumables. The Woodstock-New Paltz Art & Crafts Fair is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, August 30 and 31 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 1. Entry to the Ulster County Fairgrounds costs $8 general admission, $7 for seniors, though you can usually get $1 off the price by checking the website at www.quailhollow.com. Kids age 12 and under get in free, but pets should be left at home; and strollers should be wielded with consideration for the ankles of fellow fairgoers, who can sometimes be packed shoulder-to-shoulder in the main tents. Continuous live music and a tasty selection of fair food, both healthy and self-indulgent, are part of this Crafts Fair’s perennial appeal, so plan to stay at least half the day. There’s a supervised, hands-on crafts activity tent near the entrance where kids can be left to have fun while you shop. Parking across the road from the Fairgrounds is free and ample. – Frances Marion Platt

abor Day weekend means that it’s time once again for the Woodstock-New Paltz Art & Crafts Fair, which has bookended the summer season at the Ulster County Fairgrounds for more than three decades. Locals may dread the traffic, but all those visitors come to New Paltz twice a year for good reason. It’s hard to resist the lure of beautifully handcrafted objects that are displayed in such variety and abundance in the Fair’s tents and stalls. Still vacillating? Here’s another reason to go – one that sets this particular edition of the fair apart from all its previous incarnations: One of the exhibitors will be Pulitzer Prizewinning photojournalist and longtime New York Times photo editor Lonnie Schlein. Bestknown as the editor of A Nation Challenged, the booklength collection of Times photography related to the 9/11 attacks, Schlein will be showing and selling prints

To life Jewish Federation’s Fall for Art fundraiser at Wiltwyck to feature student artist champions

T

hree local art students, winners of last spring’s Emerging Artists of the Hudson Valley Competition, will have their works spotlighted at the Wiltwyck Golf Club in Kingston on Thursday, September 4, as the Jewish Federation of Ulster County holds its annual Fall for Art celebration. High school seniors Megan DeMarco of Marlboro, Suki McCarty of Rhinebeck and Asher Weinman of New Paltz will join 26 professional artists from the region to chat with the public about their work at the popular juried art sale and cocktail reception. The event is the Jewish Federation’s 18th Fall for Art celebration, and organizers note that “the number 18 in Hebrew translates into the word ‘life.’” That seems fitting enough, since, besides funding scholarship awards to the three winning students, Fall for Art sales also help support not-for-profit organizations providing life-affirming social services such as the Hudson Valley Food Bank, Family of Woodstock, Court-Appointed Special Advocates and Jewish Family Services. The three winning student competition entries, along with examples of works by the 26 participating artists for 2014, can be seen on the event website at www. fallforart.org or on the Fall for Art Facebook page. These artists include Jerilynn Babroff (acrylics), Brinton Baker (ceramics), Janet Baskerville ( jewelry), Sara Beames (fused glass), Kaete Brittin S h aw ( c e r a m i c s ) , Maria D ’Av a n z o (graphic composites/ mixed media), Graceanne FavaraKaplan ( je welr y), Stacie Flint (oil), John Franklin (wood), Glenn Grubard (mixed media), Melanie Hall (illustration/mixed media), Deirdre Leber (watercolors/giclée), Louise Lefkovitz (mixed media), Alan Levit (photography), Justin Love (oil/acrylic/pastel), Joel Mandelbaum (photography), Kevin Palfreyman (oil), Linda Palfreyman (oil), Judith Polinsky (jewelry), Fran Raia (fiber), Lesley Reich (ceramics), Billie Robson (silk scarves), Mitchell Saler (oil), Karen Schaffel (mixed media), Jim Smith (photography) and Renee and Howard Vichinsky (pottery).

with wonders, from a classic John Pike watercolor painted for Collier’s Magazine depicting the Woodstock Village Green on the night before Christmas back in the early 1950s (now a time of rocking revelry) to a host of the town’s greatest artists working in naturalism, Modernism and abstract methods over the years. “As the auction has become better-known, and with the added dimension of Internet bidding, the sale has attracted a broader array of consignments, all reviewed by a vetting committee of art experts,” WAAM Gallery director Carl Van Brunt explained. And so what if that Rembrandt’s not the high-priced sort of original to set international bells off; there are still plenty of big names such as Romare Bearden, Ad Reinhardt, Mary Frank, Roy Lichtenstein and Milton Avery to bid on. “Several early-20th-century pieces in the

auction are especially compelling,” Cox noted. “And for me, a circa-1940 oil painting titled Ghetto American Plan by Charles Keller is a highlight of the sale and a subtle reminder of American injustice…This painting subtly projects a strong message and would be a great piece for a museum to purchase.” A preview party event for the show, on view at the WAAM galleries and online up until auction time, drew an especially enthusiastic crowd last weekend – which bodes well for the big event itself, beginning at 1 p.m. sharp this coming Sunday, August 31. – Paul Smart 12th annual Woodstock Artists Association & Museum Labor Day Weekend Benefit Auction, Sunday, August 31, 1 p.m., WAAM, 28 Tinker Street, Woodstock; (845) 679-7608, 679-2040, www. jamescoxgallery.com.

Tasha Depp & Gary Joy host “Mobile Home Show” in Catskill We love pop-up galleries when they happen in vacant storefronts or other spaces accessible around town. But we love them even more when they fill truly unexpected places that one has to travel a bit to get to, like the experiments with model houses around town a few years ago. We also like the idea of home galleries: a step up from studio visits, where one’s experience of the art on view is naturally tempered by the warmth of a visit with could-be or existing friends. The truly cool new “Mobile Home Show,” which happily labels itself “a spontaneous experiment in giving art a home,” plays on all these fronts while simultaneously pulling together a group

of regional artists who all work with eyes on both wit and responsibility, as well as the warmth that emanates from keeping one’s cultural ambitions close to home, as they say. It’s all taking place through September 6, when a closing party will take place in a humble trailer that’s usually rented out as one family’s attempts to keep its finances in check. But the showing of art there over the past month has ended up highlighting the simple pleasures of the space, including its setting on a wellutilized expanse of land overlooking the Catskills’ impressive Wall of Manitou – not far from where the old Friar Tuck Resort now deteriorates, just off the oncebusy Route 32 tourist Mecca of old. The artists involved, from Stella Chasteen and Portia Munson to Vincent Bilotta and Jared Handelsman, all have a way of working as honestly clear of art’s money side as possible. This work tends to share an underlying sense of direct engagement with materials, audiences, nature and big ideas. Curated by property/mobilehomeowners Tasha Depp and Gary Joy, it feels like an even-looser extension of Depp’s work curating the current exhibition at the Greene County Council for the Arts Gallery in the nearby village of Catskill, titled “Ad Infinitum” (up through this coming Labor Day weekend), where many of the same artists came together to create a world collaborative rethinking of the Main Street artists’ space.

videos – you name it. One could spend hours just exploring, but visiting with Ms. Lalala is part of the experience, along with her “live-action art and performances.” It has become a great hangout space, where art’s eternal role as a space where all of life can get discussed free-form is allowed to shine. There have been hosts of memorable events, from orchestral concerts to potluck dinners, and yet the place shines best as a reflection of the idea of all things being art, given that they’re discussed as such. That is about as “in” a concept as one can drive an hour to get to, but well-worth the effort once made, with all answers accepted. And the artist’s name? Ah, she’s got that covered, too: “Paula Lalala is a playful name. It’s not my only name. Paula Lalala is the name I chose for myself. I think it has a ring of anonymity. We are all members of the teeming mass of humanity.” Think Lady Gaga or Madonna with a deeper arts background, in Greene County – where my wife and I were married… The Paula Lalala MVSEUM will have free visiting hours from 12 noon to 5 p.m. during the weekends of August 30 and 31, September 6 and 7, 13 and 14. All other times it’s by chance and appointment. A special ice cream social and community Exquisite Corpse drawing event led by Freeda Electra Handelsman will start at 2 p.m. this Sunday, August 31. – Paul Smart

Ziegler and O’Riley on stage at Doctorow Center in Hunter

I

n the second half of the 20th century, composer and performer Astor Piazzolla revolutionized the tango. With his background in traditional tango ensembles and his training in composition with the legendary teacher Nadia Boulanger, Piazzolla introduced contemporary harmonies into the tango, expanded its scope and used it as the basis for concert music, including concertos and an opera. Since Piazzolla’s death in 1992, the most prominent exponent of his “nuevo tango” style has been Pablo Ziegler, pianist in Piazzolla’s ensemble for its last decade. Ziegler has composed his own music in that style, made many arrangements of Piazzolla’s music and performed with a tremendous variety of other musicians, including Yo-Yo Ma, Bobby McFerrin, Béla Fleck, Joshua Bell, James Galway and Michael Feinstein. His WENDY LYNCH Christopher O’Riley two-piano partner for a CD of Piazzolla arrangements was the great Emanuel Ax. Ziegler’s latest partner is another very prominent pianist. Christopher O’Riley was already well-known in the classical world before he became the host of the long-running NPR program From the Top, featuring young classical musicians. His interest in popular music goes back to his childhood: He was already playing with a rock band when he was in sixth grade. Ziegler and O’Riley are currently touring as Two to Tango. They bring their performance to the Doctorow Center for the Arts in Hunter on Sunday, August 31 at 8 p.m., with a pre-concert talk at 7 o’clock. – Leslie Gerber Two to Tango, Sunday, August 31, 8 p.m. concert with 7 p.m. talk, $25/$20 advance, $30/$25 door, $7 students, Doctorow Center for the Arts, 7971 Main Street, Hunter; (518) 263-2063, www.catskillmtn.org.

She keeps a great blog of everyday sketches that capture the lyricism of everyday life – from shoe-store visits to time getting the car repaired or mowing the lawn with a faulty machine – the way the best Beat literature once did. Her aesthetic, shared with everyone in her and Joy’s rentable mobile home, is taken several steps forward in this adventurous undertaking.

Exquisite Corpse & ice cream social at Paula Lalala MVSEVM The place where the New York artist Paula Lalala set up her Paula Lalala MVSEVM (yes, those are two Vs in there) is a grand old church com-

munity hall hidden in a valley deep in rural Greene County. It’s a quiet area where all the locals came together, decades ago, to declare their local roads scenic routes, so that there’d never be the possibility of a big dump or manufacturing in their landscape. It’s also the place where my wife and I got married many a moon ago. The Paula Lalala MVSEVM cordially first opened last summer as the artist in question, fresh up from Brooklyn with her partner, extended their art adventures – part installation work, part performance with a prodigious number of solid pieces coming out of both practices – with the sort of faux museum that many of us remember making as kids. The result is full of energy, inspiration and fun. “I use castoff and neglected things and care for and transform them. The MVSEVM is a giant self-portrait, and I am a proud member in good standing of the ranks of navel-gazing artists; I hold the belief that each individual reflects our society as a whole. I seek to commune across intellectual, emotional and spiritual spheres, and I strive for vulnerability and honesty. Compassion and empathy are among our greatest gifts, and I am working to cultivate these states of being through the medium of art,” she writes of

her creation in Greene County. “In my life and work, to the degree that I am able, I am an individual sublimating collective institutions. I am a museum, I educate myself and my offspring, I heal myself and others, I am a religious organization. The Paula Lalala MVSEVM evolved out of a body of deeply personal autobiographical work, which I could not bring herself to part with.” Inside the humble building is a maze of personal pieces, artist statements, photos,

Jewelry art by Daniel Von Weinberger on view in Tannersville Art has a way of reaching beyond its self-imposed boundaries. Consider the state of jewelry these days, especially as exemplified in the latest exhibition at the region’s hot next gallery space next to the Orpheum Theater in Tannersville: the Say What Gallery. Set up to make contemporary visual arts more accessible by matching new works against classic literary quotes, its new show (through the month) lets loose the wild new concoctions of Belgian jewelry-based artist Daniel Von Weinberger against the great Coco Chanel’s observation that “In order to be irreplaceable, one must be different.” Von Weinberger, based in the darkly chic Flemish city of Antwerp – one of the diamond-cutting capitals of the world, as well as home to some exuberant new cultural work in fashion, fine art, literature and graffiti – is an Orthodox Jew with a deep sense of extravagant whimsy (and a blue beard). His materials range from found objects, including plastic, to fine gems; think in terms of rolled Asterix comics in a field of feathers and God’s-eyelike ties. It’s unlike anything out there and a new form of ultra-chic, European-style. – Paul Smart Daniel Von Weinberger, WednesdaySunday through September 13, 1-6 p.m., Say What?

GARDENER’S NOTEBOOK

Second helpings It’s planting time for autumn vegetables, biennial flowers

T

here’s a flurry of seedsowing and setting out of transplants going on here. Am I deluded that it’s springtime? No. Autumn is around the corner and there are vegetables to be planted. For many gardeners, summer’s end and the garden’s end are one and the same. But planning for and planting an autumn vegetable garden bypasses the funereal look of waning tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and other vegetables that thrive only with summer heat and long days of sunshine, and puts plenty of fresh vegetables on the table. Having an autumn vegetable garden is like having a whole new garden: one that gradually fades in, like a developing photograph, as summer vegetables fade out. That is why today I tucked two dozen endive transplants into a double row of holes spaced 15 inches apart in a three-foot-wide bed – and why, in a different bed two weeks ago, I sowed a row of Watermelon winter radishes (the resemblance to watermelon being only in the color of their innards), a row of turnips and a row of Chinese cabbage. Also, why back in March, seeds of Brussels sprouts were sown, the seedlings of which were transplanted to yet another bed last May. Not that the time has passed for planting any autumn vegetables; plenty of vegetables that enjoy the cool moistness of autumn are still to be sown. This week, I plan to sow lettuce, spring radishes, arugula, mustard and spinach. The question might arise as to where to plant all these autumn vegetables when the garden is already overflowing with summer vegetables.  Overflowing, really? I planted the endive transplants in a bed

that I had just cleared of edamame plants; edamame bear over a period of a couple of weeks and then they’re done, which they were. Likewise, a whole bed of onions and a first planting of corn are finishing up, freeing up space for planting. Even the bed from the second planting of corn will be freed up by the end of August. Harvest of bush beans does not halt as abruptly as that of corn, onions or edamame. Nonetheless, the bean harvest does begin to taper down after two or three weeks, so out went the first planting of bush beans a couple of weeks ago. A second planting, sown in a different bed three weeks after the first planting, took up the slack, and today I’m pulling even those plants out of the ground. Pole bean plants will keep green beans on our plates until frosty weather, which is what it takes to put a stop those plants. My garden isn’t only about food. I’m also sowing some flower seeds now – not to blossom in autumn, but to get a jump on next spring. This past spring I sowed seeds of Apricot-Peach Parfait hollyhocks (from www.reneesgarden.com). Right now, the plants’ seven-foot-high spires are studded along their length with frilly blossoms in delicious shades of apricot and rosypeach. I want more. Hollyhock self-seeds, so future population growth could be left to the vagaries of nature and weather. But overly diligent weeding or mulching might quash newcomers, so I’m going to sow more seeds. Hollyhock is a biennial or shortlived perennial so that self-seeding habit is welcome. As either a short-lived perennial or biennial, hollyhocks tend to grow just leaves their first year and flower their second year – then die if they behave like a biennial, or go on to flower for more years if they are perennial. I was able to get flowers this season from spring-sown seeds because I planted the seed early and the seedlings spent their first few weeks of growth in the greenhouse. (Through breeding, some varieties of hollyhock behave as annuals  and bloom reliably their first year – but not as seven-foothigh spires.) Planting the seed in late summer guarantees that the plants will bloom next year, and earlier than spring-sown plants. Cool weather of late fall and late winter helps trigger the flowering response. Delphinium is another flower to sow this week. In addition to the advantages of enjoying spires of blue flowers earlier and

Lee’s endive transplants

more reliably next summer, delphinium seeds sprout more reliably if fresh, which they are more likely to be in autumn than the following spring. Chilling the dry seed (some sources suggest stratification – that is, chilling the moist seed) for a week or so also is said to help wake it up. Once seedlings of hollyhocks and delphiniums get going, they’ll need special accommodations to get through winter. After all, they’ll still be tender baby plants when the weather turns frigid. The goal is to keep them alive and growing slowly going into winter. I’ll either tuck the pots

Delphinium is another flower to sow this week close together in the coldframe or in the slightly warmer large window in my barely heated basement. – Lee Reich Any gardening questions?

For a $50 contribution (which will offset the cost of purchasing, placing and dedicating the markers on each patriot’s grave), each participant will receive a certificate of “adoption” with the patriot’s name and be listed as an “adopter” in a booklet produced and distributed to local schools, libraries and historical societies about these soldiers’ roles in the fight for American Independence. The adopters also will be invited to the dedication ceremony on Sunday, May 24 of next year at the cemetery.

NIGHT SKY

Still in love with the Voyagers

T

News from the edge of the solar system

wo years ago, the first human-made object left the solar system. That was Voyager 1. Right now, in late August and early September, it’s also the anniversary of the launching of both Voyagers, way back in 1977. If ever there was an epic journey worthy of Homer, it’s this. These spacecraft were built to study Jupiter and Saturn and their larger moons. To accomplish this, they were designed to last five years. But we all knew that a rare geometric arrangement of the outer planets would unfold from 1977 to 1989, which could let a spacecraft visit every planet beyond Mars. This layout of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune only happens once in 175 years. A precisely aimed craft could swing from one world to the next, using each one’s gravity as a slingshot. Even Pluto was attainable. But could any spacecraft last long enough to reach all those planets? Congress said flat-out “no” to the notion of going to Pluto. Even designing a craft to last long enough to reach Neptune was thought to be too expensive. Therefore the Voyagers were funded to fly past Jupiter and Saturn only. But as we received stunning images and breathtaking surprises – at Jupiter in 1979, then Saturn in late 1980 and early ’81 – the additional attempted flybys of Uranus and Neptune were approved. Actually, the extended mission was funded for just Voyager 2, which already suffered from a broken main radio and a worrisome temperamental backup. Sadly, Voyager 1’s deliberate close passage past Saturn’s moon Titan gave it a trajectory that made further planets unattainable. Thus, Voyager 2’s five-year shelf life was now stretched to 12, with fingers crossed. But the craft kept working. We got our first (and still the only) close-up images of green Uranus in 1986 and blue Neptune in 1989. The end? No way. Thanks to their RTGs, their plutonium-based electrical generators, the ships had enough power to study the “solar wind” as it blew past them, and to seek the edge of the solar system where that wind would be theoretically stopped cold by incoming particles from interstellar space. Several years ago, the Sun’s particles no longer zoomed past the Voyagers, which instead outraced them. Voyager 1 sensed the heliopause – the boundary at the end of the

itage Conservation Treatment Grant for the restoration of a portrait of Garret Decker Hasbrouck painted by Francesco Anelli in 1840. The grant was one of 24 awarded to agencies in 18 counties in the state to assist with the conservation of paintings, textiles, sculpture, paper and decorative objects in urgent need of conservation. The restoration work on the portrait of Garret Hasbrouck will be done by Marie G. Bruno of Arte Artigianato Restauro, Inc. in Kingston. Treatment will include cleaning and correcting lined tears, including a one-inch gouge on Garret’s chin, and correcting discolored varnish. The oil on canvas, measuring 70 ¾ by 54 ½ inches, is a companion piece to the portrait of Julia Lawrence Hasbrouck, Garret’s wife, which underwent conservation treatment with funding from the Greater Hudson Heritage Network’s 2012 grant. The Hasbrouck family lived in the 1798 stone house that now serves as the community library, donated by their daughter Julia Hasbrouck Dwight in 1909. In addition, the library owns 17 of Julia’s diaries written between 1838 and 1879, in which she records daily life and family events. The diaries are published in a daily blog posted on the library’s website. For more information, visit www. stoneridgelibrary.org.

Artist’s concept drawing of NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft entering interstellar space

Sun’s magnetic influence – and entered Interstellar Space, two years ago this week. As Voyager 1 leaves the solar system by rising above the ecliptic plane at an angle of about 35 degrees, it travels 320 million miles farther away annually. Voyager 2 is meanwhile leaving at a downward angle of 48 degrees and a speed of 290 million miles a year. Both spacecraft are expected to return valuable data until roughly the year 2035. The Voyagers each famously carry a phonograph record in the form of a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk. It will be 40,000 years before the first Voyager passes within a light-year of any star. Should an alien civilization somehow ever find it and figure out how to use the enclosed needle, and play the disk at a speed of 16 2/3 revolutions per minute, they’ll see 115 images of Earth, including autumn foliage from our region. They’ll also hear a 90-minute selection of music of various cultures, from Bach to Chuck Berry, and a potpourri of natural sounds such as wind, surf and birds. Also a “Hello” in 55 languages including Akkadian, which was spoken 6,000 years ago, just in case they visited us back then and still remember the formalities. (That’s not actually why Akkadian was included.) With all the world’s problems and the pseudoscience that one keeps seeing, it’s hard not to remain in love with the Voyagers. I fondly pat my blue hippie airplane after every landing, when she has kept my passengers and me alive for decades now. But no love affair with a material object can compare with what I – and many others – still feel for those amazing Voyagers. Happy anniversary, you two. – Bob Berman Want to know more?

Tess Kelly does most of the “small-batch” baking at her young shop, which just started bringing France to Uptown on June 14. Small-batch means that they have certain things every day, Kelly says, but a lot that changes daily as well. They offer special items in small batches that are only there until they sell out. So everything is fresh every day, but you may not find that pistachio macaron or sour cherry/toasted pecan scone that you loved last week on this Thursday’s menu. Small-batch also means that the cookies, cupcakes and tarts are all made with the highest-quality ingredients, like local Feather Ridge Farm eggs and a highbutterfat butter from Vermont. Kelly uses no oil – although it would be cheaper – and no preservatives to extend shelf life. Kelly wishes to retire to France one day, she tells me as she stirs a big bowl of rich chocolate ganache. But in the meantime she visits often, and is now bringing Paris to Kingston, via Séraphine. It’s a multisensory experience: The taste of French pastries – like plain or chocolate croissants – brings you to France via your palate, and the large black-and-white prints of French scenes bring you France visually. French music piped in rounds out the Continental experience, and pastries are packed in neat little white boxes or aesthetically pleasing white paper bags – no plastic here. Décor is simple and spare: plain white walls on one side, brick wall on the other, gleaming wooden floor and white café chairs and tables. When I was there a Frenchman and his American wife were visiting the shop with their young daughter Séraphine in tow. Kelly points out that her bakery is the only place in Kingston where you can get real macarons (not “macaroon,” which is an eggwhite-based cookie). The

chocolate chunks, double-chocolate brownies, lemon madeleines and more. I sampled a rich bouchon, a decadent brownie bite, cork-shaped, sugar-dusted and intensely fudgy. An array of tarts, small and large, are in the pastry case, “mixing the French spirit with an American heart,” coming in banana cream meringue, lemon curd and seasonal fillings from pumpkin to pecan. Kelly named the bakery after Séraphine Louis (1864-1942), a self-taught French painter known for her flower subjects and secret pigments. Kelly has been in the restaurant business about 30 years, she says, and before Séraphine she had a business making custom cakes, which she still does. She can make them in sheet size or a variety of round sizes, and in flavors that include red velvet, super chocolate, lemon drop, carrot/ ginger, coconut, flourless chocolate and old-fashioned butter cake. A daily special cake is for sale by the slice in the shop; the day that I visited it was butter cake with raspberry filling and hazelnut butter. The über-popular cupcake is wellrepresented with variations like a raspberry filling or angel cake batter, or with frostings like cream cheese, chocolate ganache or Swiss meringue buttercream. Custom wedding cakes can sport gold or silver, edible flowers or monograms. Savory offerings include a quiche du jour, with or without salad, and last but not least, to wash it all down there is an assortment of satisfying libations, from Stumptown Coffee – small-batchroasted in Brooklyn – to tea; peppermint, chamomile or chai was a recent sampling. Perrier and Stumptown’s Cold Brew quench summer thirsts. Find Séraphine at 39 North Front Street, at (845) 331-0201, www.seraphinebakery. com, on Facebook or Instagram @ séraphinebakeryny.

I love coffee. I know that many of you are coffee lover’s too, some to a super extreme, so I’ve made it a habit of looking for characteristics in people that are “Coffeholics” and I’ve like to share a few: You answer the door before people knock - You can jump-start your car without cables - Your taste buds are so numb you could drink your lava lamp - You’ve built a miniature city out of little plastic stirrers - Your only source of nutrition comes from “Sweet & Low.” You can type sixty words per minute ... with your feet - You chew on other people’s fingernails and lastly, Starbucks owns the mortgage on your house, and on that note, remember that Win Morrison Realty can offer great advice on getting your mortgage…

SUNDAYS IN SEPTEMBER Motivated sellers invite all prospective buyers to view their exclusive private home on Hutchin Hill, Town of Woodstock, Hamlet of Shady for an OPEN HOUSE every Sunday in September from 1 - 3 PM. The long, treelined driveway, with old stone walls, opens to a huge sun drenched meadow with expansive views and a perfectly sited home built in 2005. The breathtaking 12 acre parcel includes: a large (15 ft deep/50 yard wide) swimable, spring fed, clean, stocked pond and a roaring mountain stream. The house is south-facing for optimal passive solar heating and year round views of Mount Guardian and Mount Tonche. The property offers prime locations for a garden, pool, barn, pasture, studio or even another house. There are 4 decks/porches/patios and the roof is perfectly pitched for solar panels. The builders used R-52 insulation, 2 x 6 construction, massive timber beams, and top-ofthe-line, oversized, energy efficient Andersen windows that yield huge heating/cooling savings. The house has three levels and over 3000 square feet of living space, ten foot ceilings, large great room with kitchen/dining, sun room, library/study with fireplace, 2/3 bedrooms and bathrooms, deep two person spa tub with mountain views, huge work bench area, laundry and rec/exercise room (or could be an office) with a separate entrance. The abundance of french doors and windows and the constant roar of the stream (with no traffic noise) create an extremely relaxing ambience. In fact, many animals enjoy the serene, peaceful setting as well. Most of the lumber used for the construction was obtained locally. The interior has wide pine floors and the exterior is rough cut pine. All of the materials were selected with simplicity, style and low-maintenance in mind! In addition, the 250 foot deep well has amazingly pure water; it is far better than anything you can buy in a bottle. Come and see our little slice of heaven, 1 mile up Hutchin Hill, on the right... bring your suit and go for a swim - ENJOY! The owners will be accepting all pre-qualified and/or cash offers (from low ball to above asking, $995,000) throughout the month of September and will accept best offer on, or before the first of October. If a Sunday in September does not fit your schedule, please call 845 679 6704 or text 845 706 7273 or email f3218@outlook.com to set up an appointment.

We believe we can help each other- We have a swap meet every Sunday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at Holy Cow Shopping Center, in addition to a flea market/garage sale. We find that when business people set up a table w/business cards & flyers or â&#x20AC;&#x153;show how to doâ&#x20AC;? projects it will definitely increase your business (and mine). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to introduce your business to new/old customers. And, if you have leftover merchandise youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to sell- this would be a perfect way to unload it.

About 8-weeks old, no more fleas, his long orange & white fur is growing back beautifully & his furry tail is becoming fuller every day.

kitty w/a lion haircut. Friendly enough to earn the title of lobby cat, Toro has been greeting visitors at the shelter for some time. SADE & T-BOZ; These two adorable grey tabby kittens have a neurological condition which makes them a bit clumsy (aren’t we all?), but they’re happy, healthy & involve no more care than any other wonderful kitty. They’re ready to go to a loving home today. They’re not climbers except to climb into your heart. AUSTIN; Another cat friendly enough to roam the lobby & mingle w/the public. He’s affectionately referred to around these parts as the “lobby otter” for his outgoing personality & striking resemblance to an otter. He’s an older gentleman, neutered & great w/other cats. In case you were wondering, VICTORIA, RAVEN & HAMMERJAW are still looking for loving & caring homes.
