Celebrating Saugerties-Woodstock love

knots HZTSaugerties artist Willy Ze’ev Neumann’s identical twin “Love Knot” sculptures, intended to symbolize the bond between the Saugerties and Woodstock communities, will be officially installed in Saugerties at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 4 at the corner of Main and Market streets and in Woodstock at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 on the lawn of Marie’s Bazaar, opposite Bread Alone on Route 212 at Maple Lane. Each sculpture has a plaque that reminds viewers to “tie the knot of friendship” and visit the sister sculpture in the other town. The iconic red artworks function both as a visual stimulus and as a love seat that the viewer can sit on. Members of the arts and local civic leaders from both towns will attend the unveiling ceremonies, including Saugerties Town Supervisor Kelly Myers, Saugerties Village Mayor Bill Murphy and Woodstock Town Supervisor Jeremy Wilber. For more information, call Neumann at 246-5970 or (718) 388-4082 or email zwilly10024@yahoo.com.
