CREATIVE INSPIRATION


Lynn Digby

Still, up the private drives and shaded lanes of this town, across the streams and valleys, borne on the breezes or the winds, beaten into the very earth of this place is the urge to express, to create. Somehow, to be a part of Woodstock bestows a heritage of courage to stand apart and be oneself.

WORKING FOR THE MUSES

Lora Shelley

One hundred miles north of New York City lies Woodstock, one of the most famous small towns in America, famous for a concert that didn’t happen there, and also famous for an idea based on a set of values that began in the early 20th Century. It’s a town that embraces a way of life beyond ‘hippie’, celebrating nature, going back to the land and simplicity, and is famous for incubating artists and stirring creativity for more than a century. It’s a town where it’s cool to draw, paint, play music, write poetry, and forge a path to uniqueness. This is where many live their dreams and where light shines on creative ideas. Founded by Native Americans and later Dutch, English and German settlers, farming and tanning were the main occupations. Merging land and spirit with diversity today, Woodstock is a town where many residents and visitors alike maintain a constant love affair with life. Many actors, artists, writers and musicians keep open minds, refine their sense of truthfulness, no matter how difficult. When meeting an artist, Woodstockers typically ask, “What kind of art do you do?” instead of “How do you make a living?” This art Mecca began in 1902 when Byrdcliffe, the oldest U.S. continuous art colony, was founded by Ralph Whitehead, Hervey White and Bolton Brown. Hervey left a few years later to start his own colony a few miles away. The Maverick concerts began there in 1915 and have become the oldest continuous summer chamber music series in the U.S. The Woodstock Artists Association, formed in 1921, with its museum and vital events and exhibition program today is the home for arts in the Village of Woodstock.


By the time Bob Dylan came in 1963 Woodstock was already famous as an art colony. In 1969, plans for the Woodstock Festival of Music and Art grew so large that the location was moved to Max Yasgur’s farm in Bethel, 40 miles away. The Woodstock Generation was born. Known internationally as a cultural haven, this is a town where music and words play a key role. Theater brings Broadway talent to the newly owned and renovated Woodstock Playhouse and the Woodstock Fringe. Opera is performed locally by The Phoenicia Festival of the Voice. While working for the muses or themselves, many creative souls share their art with the community. Galleries, museums, craft stores and businesses celebrate Second Saturdays from May through December and the free summer concerts on the Village Green and Shakespeare productions in the Comeau park attract hundreds.

“This is where many live their dreams and where light shines on creative ideas.”

Carol Davis

We celebrate and appreciate the extraordinary. Many of us are delighted to be a tourist town and welcome you as an old friend would - part of our community. Enjoy the unique shops, restaurants, galleries, museums and glorious scenery while you encompass the pleasures of Woodstock. We encourage you to make memories with the muses.

VERSIONS OF ARTISTRY A long-time Woodstock resident recently asked if I’d heard a local fable that begins, “If you ever spend a night in Woodstock, you’re bound to return.” While the specific fable was new to me, and I laughed at the whispered tone we were using to discuss the story, the premise was something I’d witnessed many times. Woodstock captures the imagination quickly and then continues to inspire---luring artists and collectors, lovers of natural beauty, independent thinkers and writers, musicians and dreamers. The community of Woodstock then nourishes them with readings, concerts, exhibits, classes, and spiritual retreats providing a haven for experimentation, contemplation and shared experience. Woodstock values the earth and the conservation of natural resources, and residents seek to protect our natural world. From the beginnings of The Byrdcliffe and Maverick Colonies and the early Arts Students League summer sessions to today’s Byrdcliffe Guild, Woodstock Artists’ Association & Museum, and Center for Photography at Woodstock, the importance of artists working together and exhibiting work has remained a priority of this small town’s commerce and spirit. Jewelers, potters, and furniture makers create useful objects that are also individual works of art. In Woodstock, you can hike Overlook Mountain, join a haiku poetry group or enjoy Meredith Rosier

theater at the newly renovated Woodstock Playhouse. Both the Woodstock Film Festival and Woodstock Writer’s Festival bring international talent to the center of town. Shop owners, innkeepers, restaurateurs and chefs offer locals and visitors small business versions of artistry and unique experience. Vacationers can dine in sequins or sweats, visit rustic inns or relax with spa treatments. We have a vital indie bookstore and movie theater within walking distance to town. Maybe all of this combines to fuel the fable. Returning to a lovely natural setting offering a passion for history, culture and beauty, whether for a weekend or for a lifetime, seems perfectly Woodstock.

“Woodstock captures the imagination quickly and then continues to inspire”

Enjoy your visit! We know we’ll see you again.

You Yearned It A Zen Advice Column

Living life is an art. Art has form - even if it is free form. When we tap into the Creative Mind, we must transcend the self/ego in order to link up with the Collective Creative Mind, and the Universal Unified Field. The great Director of Photography, Haskell Wexler Eric Angeloch

Carol Struve

once said “I still believe that there’s form to art and that means there has to be organization, discipline, responsibility, authority, technical knowledge and professionalism”. This is what we need in our life daily to make our life work. Everything we do is an art. Use your will and your inner power to put your life in order. Our lives are a creation in process, and every day we creatively take action by the choices we make as to the out come of our lives. Each stroke, each word, each movement is truly an action of creativity. If you can master the art of your life, life becomes a process of making choices that can be designed to make life beautiful. It takes a master crafter to carve out one’s own life. The journey for both our inner and outer world takes so much energy it is absolutely phenomenal. If our life was similar to that of a light bulb,


Lynn Towner

we would be burning steadily for approximately 75-85 years or longer. Now that’s a lot of energy. That is why more and more people are looking into the “footprint” they make on this Planet and the impact on the earth whilst living their life. Just think about the footprint we make on our own “inner” planet by the choices we make. Remember, Every Action Has A Reaction. I keep a small framed quote, by the Sage Patanjali on my desk that was given to me by my daughter Kiva several years ago. It reads “When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents come alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be“. These words have now become part of my daily existence. Before l begin my crafting, l contact an energy within myself that I have learned to tap into. It is an energy of inner power, yet, it is also an energy of Fear and Trust at the very same time. It is an energy of discipline and also free form. When we create, we are in a state of grace. About fifteen years ago, I read an article in a yoga magazine about the artist, Henri Matisse. Matisse was once asked if he believed in God, and he said, “Only when l paint”. That sits on my desk as well. Love and Light,

Claire Brightwater, the Turquoise Lady 7


My Name is Erica and I am a Culture Vulture When I moved to upstate New York from New York City in 1991, one of the hardest adjustments I had to make was to boredom. There simply wasn’t much to do. There was very little theatre, movies were mostly action blockbusters at the multiplex, and the type of music we liked—folk—had disappeared along with the Woodstock generation. My husband and I initially lived in Catskill, 30 miles north of Woodstock and we would scour the listings for a concert, play or event that sounded interesting in the corridor from Albany to Kingston. There wasn’t much south of Albany. Fast forward to 2001. We moved to Woodstock, and by that time new venues were popping up all over the place. We saw some great folk music at the Colony and Kleinert, movies at Tinker St. Cinema and Upstate Films and plays in several venues around town. Unfortunately the husband

I am thrilled to report that no one has to go to Albany or New York City anymore for “kulcha.”

left shortly after we moved and as the listings exploded with fascinating events, I languished in front of the TV on Saturday nights, reluctant to take myself out alone. Finally I got pro-active and started the Woodstock Culture Vultures Meetup group. Meetup.com is an online site where you can post just about anything you’re interested in and find other like-minded folks in your area. Well it turned out that there are lots of folks like myself, mostly singles, who want to take advantage of what this area offers. I am thrilled to report that no one has to go to Albany or New York City anymore for “kulcha.”. Not only is there lots of it in and around Woodstock, but, unlike in New York City, tickets are usually cheap, you don’t have to wait in line for hours—and there’s free parking. We Woodstock Culture Vultures have almost too much to choose from these days. Just a few venues that either weren’t around or I didn’t know about when I moved here: UPAC in Kingston, which regularly features dance recitals, musicians, singers, and even stand-up comics; the Bearsville Theatre where some top rock bands perform; PAW (Performing Arts of Woodstock) which produces Off-Broadway-caliber shows; the Woodstock Colony which hosts quirky music from folk, to jazz to blues; the Woodstock Film Festival


AND the Woodstock Writers Festival bring the cinema and publishing worlds to our doorstep; the Woodstock Playhouse reopened and is now showing professionally produced musical revivals; Woodstock Fringe shows offbeat original plays and one-man and one-woman shows that you can’t see anywhere else; Rosendale Theatre is now the home of Actors and Writers who sponsor regular readings and performances of exciting short plays performed by Equity actors. We even have exotic ethnic food now, another lack when I moved here. Our first Culture Vulture meetup was at Mezzaluna, a Puerto Rican bistro in Saugerties. Harriet Livathinos

Our area has become a center for the visual arts as well. Some of the art galleries in Woodstock include Fletcher Gallery, Woodstock Framing Gallery, BMG Gallery, Woodstock Artists Assoc. & Museum, Kleinert, Center of Photography and Bearsville Graphics. On Second Saturday nights of the month they hold openings and you can wander from one to the other. To tell you the truth it’s a tad overwhelming. Now that I have so many places to go and so many people to go with, sometimes I want to just stay home and veg in front of the TV again. Be careful what you wish for……

Thirst for Fun

Marcie Woodruff

WOODSTOCK is a festival town.  Indeed this summer the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild is having a “festival of festivals”, highlighting on one weekend, the many & varied festivals we have throughout the year.   Coming from the traditions of the late Maverick Festivals & from the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival, this idea of festival defines us...of a “fete” for art & music, for mind & body, offering to our visitors a grand party, sharing a time of joy & creativity together.  It is the time for our town to celebrate this “feast” in many different ways ...film, fiction, poetry, music, dance, theater, or art.  It is a time for revelry, with performances & special events to present to the world a showcase for that spirit which Woodstock embodies.  It is a “fiesta” ...our community expressing its special quality through celebration. It is our way to have a “festivity” that we can enjoy as well as present.  From many months of preparing, securing the talent, scheduling the events, it all looks simple at its fruition.  But its toil is suffused with joy, and a sense that our town is at the center of the universe, at least for a weekend. So I invite you all to come to Woodstock with a thirst for fun, for an opportunity to revel in something unique, to be part of the spirit of the town, to find new things in a beautiful natural setting to feast on ideas, as well as good food & drink, to dance, to sing, to paint, to film, to photograph, to write, to play an instrument.  It is all waiting for you here.

– Barry Samuels 12


Teresa Ancel

“Woodstock came to symbolize our solidarity...the connection to one another felt by all of us...we showed the best of ourselves...the time was right...the spirit was right, and we were right. What resulted was a celebration...when joy became big news...It was a strange, sometimes magical trip...Woodstock was an opportunity, a moment, a home...” (Michael Lang from The Road to Woodstock) 1 133
