OMI Exhibit – Lois Dodd: Windows

Blue Sky Window, 1979
Oil on Linen

OMI International Arts Center presents an exhibition of works by the renowned and influential American painter Lois Dodd. The exhibit, which features the artist’s representational paintings of windows and doors, is open now.

Dodd was part of the wave of New York artists to explore the coast of Maine after the second World War, and spent many summers in the Mid-Coast region surrounding Penobscot Bay. The artist was attracted to the rambling old farm houses, verant fields, and bright sunshine of a summer’s day. For Dodd, being there provided her the freedom to concentrate of the depiction of rich vegetation and crumbling structures that make Maine so attractive, as seen in her works.

Snowshoe Hike at Martin Van Buren Site

screen-shot-2017-02-23-at-2-08-28-pmThe Snowshoe Hike at the Martin Van Buren National Historic Site that was originally planned for January, was postponed to this Saturday (February 25). With the abnormally warm temperatures (66 in February) that we have been having, there may not be enough snow on the ground for the hike. Fortunately, the organizers already have a Plan B in place. If there is not enough snow on the ground, the program will be a letterbox challenge designed by last summer’s high school interns. Participants will be given instructions to find letters scattered throughout the park, and solve clues to locate the cache.

This activity involves walking over a mile on mostly flat grass. It is designed for ages 8 and up. Anyone 14 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

DATE/TIME:
Saturday February 25, 2017 at 11am – 12:30pm

LOCATION/CONTACT:
Martin Van Buren National Historic Site
1013 Old Post Road, Kinderhook

OMI Candlelight Concert w/ Kills to Kisses, February 18

8637322_origOMI International Arts Center presents a Candlelight Concert performance with Kills to Kisses, aka Lisa Dowling. The New York Times describes Dowling’s sound as “Bjork-like” and “innovative”.

Her music is bass-centric, but not in the ways you would expect; luscious, pulsating melodies soar over funky bass riffs and electronic drones creating a “brusquely subtle or exquisitely dense” (Inanna Naked) cinematic language that will beg of your hips. Her mastery of looping technology, “delicate, pure voice” (Woodstock Times), and serious chops create a veritable tour-de-force that is a breath of fresh air. Kills to Kisses has been presented at the Berkshire Fringe Festival, the Contagious Sounds Series and regularly performs in and around NYC.

The performance will take place in the glass setting of Omi’s Visitors Center.  There will be a reception with drinks and hors d’oeuvres following the performance.

DATE/TIME:
Saturday, February 18th, at 5pm

LOCATION:
OMI Visitors Center
1405 County Rt. 22,
