Steven Kellogg ~ Pinkerton & Friends
Thru October 7, 2023
The Rosenberg Gallery will feature the extraordinary artwork of Steven Kellogg. Kellogg is the acclaimed illustrator and author of some 135 children’s storybooks, including his well-known series about Pinkerton the Great Dane and his tall tales about classic American characters like Paul Bunyan, and Johnny Appleseed. He has always loved to draw and the way that pictures can deepen and expand the text of a story — creating what he calls a “beautiful duet.”
The exhibit rounds up a selection of Steven Kellogg’s art spanning his long and distinguished career. Feast your eyes on these visions in pencil, crayon, oil, acrylic, watercolors, colored ink, and mixed media. Enter the magical, inviting rainbow world of Steven Kellogg’s imagination.

You’ll be hearing much more about the wonderful concerts and events we have planned this summer, but for now we’d like to invite everyone to the great Paul Meyers World on a String Trio, June 17 at 7 pm, at Keene Arts. (Please note the time change from our poster)
Paul, a seasoned veteran of the NYC jazz scene, has a special interest in Brazilian music, and this trio features an incredible Brazilian drummer named Vanderlei Pereira. Paul has been called “One of the most eloquent jazz guitarists since Kenny Burrell” by the NY Times. Please join us!
And thank you to KCS student Orra Sprague for the beautiful artwork on the poster.

Saturday, June 10th, 8 pm
One could describe Art Thief as Sci-fi/Acid funk. Or perhaps, “If Jaco was Randy Newman”, sprinkled with the B52’s and Led Zeppelin. Hard hitting punk rock energy gently caresses the boundaries jazz and popular music.

Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) presents a tour
Lowville and the Black River Valley
Wednesday, June 14, 2023
With deep roots in farming, forestry, and transportation, the Black River Valley straddling the western edge of the Adirondack region features a bold history and distinctive communities. As a major Lewis County community, Lowville retains a remarkable collection of 19th- and early 20th-century buildings, illustrative of that period’s rapid population growth, strong workforce, and accompanying architectural vibrancy.
We will begin our day exploring Constable Hall, a Federal-style limestone building constructed over the course of nearly a decade before 1820. This home, the product of skilled stone masons and craftspeople, was inhabited by William Constable Jr. and five generations of the Constable family. Here, the family served as promoters of the region and launched efforts to bring people to burgeoning Black River communities. In the afternoon, we will tour downtown Lowville with its broad range of architectural styles, including some particularly stunning Queen Anne homes. On our trek, we will see the National Register-listed Bateman Hotel and explore the ongoing efforts of Tug Hill Coffee Roasters to transform a historic jail into a public-facing café and artisan roastery.
This outing is led by Constable Hall’s Peter Hayes, our friends from Historically Lewis, and passionate local building owners. The tour runs from 10 am to 4 pm.
