Claverack Library Lecture: The Hudson River Valley in the American Revolution, Nov 18

Screenshot-2018-10-31-22.17.44

This Sunday, the Claverack Free Library is hosting a lecture titled, “The Hudson River Valley in the American Revolution, Fortress West Point, & the Great Chain”.

COL. Jim Johnson, in the uniform of the 5th NY Regiment, will be speaking about Washington’s “key of America”–Fortress West Point on the Hudson River. As the center of the colonies at the time of the American Revolution, the Hudson River Valley provided a nexus for the conflict and hosted many key figures, battles – Fort Montgomery and Fort Clinton, and political events throughout the eight years of war.  The American Revolution played out along the Hudson’s banks – from the first riots protesting the British Quartering Act on Golden Hill in Lower Manhattan, to the chaining of the Hudson and Benedict Arnold’s attempted betrayal of West Point in the Highlands in 1780, to the Battles of Saratoga along its northern shores where Arnold played the role not of traitor, but of hero. The Hudson River Valley was essential to the birth of our Nation. 

DATE/TIME:
Sunday, November 18, 2018: 2 – 4pm

LOCATION:
A.B. Shaw Firehouse
67 NY-23, Claverack, NY 12513

Art Omi is hosting an opening and public reception in the Benenson Center for three exhibitions with Art Omi: The Fields + Art Omi: Architecture. Betty Parsons: Blue Sky Very High is a series of paintings by Betty Parsons, which will be on view through January 6, 2019 in the gallery. Steven Holl’s One Two Five will be exhibited in Architecture Field 01, and OnSite: Lebbeus Woods’ work will be on view in the Kantor Lobby in the Benenson Center through January 6, 2019.

Betty Parsons: Blue Sky Very High is a series of paintings spanning over two decades of Betty Parsons’ career, which depict her ongoing investigation of landscape as explored through a range of approaches to abstraction. Also included in this exhibition are some of Parsons’ painted driftwood constructions.

Steven Holl worked with the dialectic of simultaneously presenting a subtractive form of sculpture and an additive form. In One Two Five, each piece is carved out of 21-million-year-old stone “pietra di Lecce” by the latest CNC technology and assembled to a two-part sculpture, where the individual elements form space either in composition or freestanding.

Lebbeus Woods’ has only a few full-sized constructed projects. Three Reconstructed Boxes is a sculptural work with sound and video components constructed with close collaborators and by Woods himself.

DATE/TIME:
Opening Public Reception – Saturday, November 10, 2018: 2 – 4 pm

LOCATION:
Omi International Arts Center – Benenson Center
1405 County Route 22
Ghent, NY 12075
