Upper Jay Art Center Presents


Thursday, May 30, 7 pm

Join us for a reading of Floaters, a new play by Scott Renderer, followed by a talkback with the artists. Performed by Terry Young, Dylan Duffy, Martha Swann, Brian LaVallee, Susy Doolittle, Gabrielle Schutz, and Vanessa Pillen

About the Play: Hailed as “brave and heroic,” artist Richard Lipsky successfully presents his disturbingly misogynistic wood sculptures called “Floaters” to the New York art scene as an emerging female artist. Encouraged to come clean and stop playing games by his new crush, Rachael, a transfeminine performance artist, the play Floaters is a journey into the hierarchies of art, identity, and power.

Saturday, June 1, 9:30 am

Celebrate National Trails Day with Champlain Area Trails (CATS) on June 1, in partnership with Whallonsburg Grange. This year, we’re blending the great outdoors with art, highlighting the work of local artist Ted Cornell. Join us for a unique event that spotlights the connection between nature and creativity through the art exhibit “This Will Be Fun: The Creativity and Vision of Ted Cornell,” available from May 4 to June 29, 2024, at Whitcomb’s Arts in Whallonsburg.

The day starts with a morning hike on the Art Farm trail and a scenic 4.5-mile journey to Whallonsburg. For those seeking a gentler experience, tours of the Art Farm and its sculptures are available, with shuttle service from the Grange. The event concludes at Whitcomb’s Arts for the exhibit viewing, optional lunch, and a talk on Cornell’s art.

Established in 2009, CATS is committed to protecting land and fostering community connections through its trails. With over 98 miles of trails and nearly 1000 acres of protected land, CATS is a key player in promoting regional ecological and cultural heritage.
