Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild has announced that its 21st annual 5 by 7 Show fundraiser will debut online this year.
The Woodstock Artists Association & Museum (WAAM) re-opens for the fall season with its historical exhibition Celebrating the Centennial: Selections from the Permanent Collection of the Woodstock Artists Association, Part 1.
“A Season in Hell,” featuring the work of Deirdre Day, David Fox, Stephen E. Lewis and Gary Mayer will be on display at the Green Kill Gallery from November 7-28.
Musician Lara Hope will be the second recipient of Kingston’s bi-annual Distinguished Artist Award. The award will be presented Thursday, November 12 at 5:30 p.m. in a live-streamed ceremony on the Facebook pages of City of Kingston, Arts Commission, Lara Hope and event sponsor Radio Kingston.
Brunel Sculpture Garden in Boiceville is holding the first showcase of new visual work created by current artist in residence Brian Paccione on October 31 and November 1.
Not to be missed is the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art’s New Folk exhibition, Jim Holl’s solo show of paintings and sculptures at Lockwood Gallery, a four-person exhibition of paintings at Green Kill, and works by Judy Pfaff and the three prizewinners of the Midtown Arts District’s first annual group show at the Arts Society of Kingston. All the shows are up through October.
Community members, international performers, political representatives, candidates and activists have gathered for a reprise concert (this time, virtually) as Hudson Valley Votes comes together to get out the vote. Airing on Saturday, October 17 at 8 p.m., via HVV’s YouTube channel and social media, as well as via Radio Kingston, Radio Woodstock and others, this third annual concert-rally features local and international talent.
The need for social distancing to protect patrons from Covid-19 has meant harder times than usual for the arts, with museums and galleries forced to limit their exhibitions and other programming to virtual platforms. That hasn’t sat well with Sevan Melikyan, owner and curator of Wired Gallery in High Falls.
In an inversion of normal that is par for the Covid-19 course, emails from several local venues in recent weeks have explicitly requesting that their events and who is performing and when not be mentioned. Actual billable hours are being spent on audience deterrence and show denial. The state is serious about enforcement.
The fifth annual Art Walk Kingston will take place on September 26 and 27, from noon to 5 p.m. Visitors and residents are invited to explore Kingston and immerse themselves in a range of art and events. Paintings, photographs, textiles, drawings, and sculptures will be on display across the city at private exhibition spaces, galleries and an online virtual gallery for those who want to explore the art from the comfort of their homes.
