Fiddling With Traditions

October 12, 7:15 – 8:15 pm

Fiddling With Traditions is a fun, imaginative, muti-media concert that features fiddler/composer Gretchen Koehler & pianist Daniel Kelly sharing fiddle tunes that evoke everything from sweeping paint strokes, to intricate stitching, to the fiery forging of Northern NY’s folk traditions. From heart pumping musical arrangements to peaceful panoramas, their expressive soundscapes capture the spirit of rug braiding, blacksmithing, quilting, silversmithing, paper making, knitting, painting and woodworking.

Audiences of all ages will enjoy this captivating musical adventure enhanced by a backdrop of gorgeous film and photography. Join us for just the concert, or add on dinner beforehand in our historic dining hall. Please note that ticket purchase is required for both the concert and the dinner.

American Vistas: The Life and Art of John Van Alstine

by Tim Kane

October 2, 2023, 7 – 8 pm, Free. This is a virtual program.

For nearly 50 years, John Van Alstine has created abstract sculptures forged with stone and steel. At their essence, they explore natural forces and human-made elements, conveying the American experience as the confluence/conflict between wilderness and industrialization.

Written as a companion piece to John Van Alstine: Sculpture 1971-2018, released in 2019 by The Artist Book Foundation (TABF), American Vistas: The Life and Art of John Van Alstine, not only highlights and offers a critical assessment of his art, but it delves into biographic elements that drive his creative process and reveals the person as much as the art. Combined, they are meant to be a singular and complete examination on one of the most important sculptors in the last half century.
