Catching up, making recompense

Here are a few things I missed in the run up to my open studio this past week::

The Garrison Art Center hosted an exhibition closing artist talk and performance as part of the Plastic Waves exhibition by Susan English and Jaanika Peerna.    The performance portion of the event was presented by Jane Thornquist.
Garrison Art Center also hosted a painter's and writer's workshop on Saturday...missed that.  However, they have announced their new schedule of classes, so you can visit their website to view that.  And on Friday, Oct 2 at 8pm, GAC will be hosting a benefit comedy performance Emily Levine at the Depot Theatre. GAC will be holding an auction on Oct 3 too, so check that out.

Joseph Bertolozzi  gave a talk on his Bridge Music at Elant in Fishkill on Friday the 24th.  Joe will be awarded a 2009 Dutchess County Executive Arts Award at a ceremony on October 28 in Poughkeepsie.  Linda Hubbard of RiverWinds and BACA will be receiving a special citation at the same ceremony.

Hudson Beach Glass opened a new exhibit on Saturday evening called Beacon on Fire.  The group show featuring work by Emil Alzamora,Tom Holmes, Rudy Mendoza, Jill Reynolds, Rosalind Schneider, Stephen Spaccarelli and Leigh Li-Yun Wen will be on view through Nov 15.


The Dorsky Museum in New Paltz announced a program of talks and a symposium to accompany the museum's ongoing Art and the River project.  The first event was a lecture on Sept 23 by professor emeritus of Geology at New Paltz, Gill Brenner. 
Future scheduled events include the Nov 7 day-long symposium "Revisiting The Hudson: Nineteenth-century Landscape Painting in Context" and a gallery talk on Nov 19 by Monroe-based landscape photographer Greg Miller to accompany his exhibit "Panorama of the Hudson River".

Greg Miller delivered a presentation on Saturday at G.A.S. in Poughkeepsie as part of the Bridging The Hudson exhibit there.  Upcoming events include presentations on Oct 10 at 1-3pm by Dick Crenson and Oct. 17 at 1-3 by Joseph Bertolozzi.

Karlos Carcamo is taking part in an exhibit, along with Barbara Weissberger and Nicholas Kashian, called Mirror on Mirror Mirrored at Dean Project in LIC, which opened on Sept 19 and will run through Nov 19. You can also check out images from this show on Karlos' blog where you can also find images from his current show at MARTE Contemporaneo in San Salvador, El Salvador.

Tony Moore's work is included in an exhibit called Out of the Anagama: Kilnmasters and Stokers at Vessels Gallery in Boston.  The show opened on Sept 26 and will run through Oct 18.  Tony will be giving a gallery talk on Sunday, October 11 at 2pm. 

Finally, Gary Jacketti has been exporting the work of many Beacon artists to Stone Harbor NJ all Summer.  Gary spends every Summer down on the Shore, and this year opened up a gallery called Beacon Art Shortwave Gallery to eat up any leisure time he might have otherwise had.  With the season closing down, so too will the gallery until next Summer.
