“Games of Chance,” paintings by Fern T. Apfel

Thru April 16, Courthouse Gallery

Abstraction and narration fold together in Fern Apfel’s acrylic paintings. Her images contain memorabilia she has collected over many years. Playing cards, letters, handwritten notes and other various ephemera are placed on top, or layered above, colored backgrounds in an intentionally considered minimal composition.

In our contemporary time, where so much communication is digital, and emails are often deleted, these painted objects can center and ground us in the physical world.

Robert Frost was a frequent visitor to Plattsburgh when he would come to see his friend, Dr. Edward “Doc” Redcay, who served as dean of students. It was during these visits that Frost, author of such iconic poems as “The Road Not Taken,” “Mending Wall,” “Birches,” and “The Gift Outright, would come to campus for readings, many of which were recorded on reel-to-reel tape.

This program shares some of those wonderful recordings. Join Dr. Anna Battigelli and Dr. Ron Davis, as they broadcast live via Zoom Wednesday, April 13 beginning at 7 pm.

More details on the program, including Zoom meeting info, are HERE.
