Al Bulay was 16 years old working in a movie theater when “Lillies of the Field” first showed.

On Thursday, he plans on showing the 1964 film to a group of no more than 50 invitees, including press and politicians at Lyceum Cinemas at 7 p.m. Almost 30 years ago, Bulay said he built the Red Hook theater in a cornfield off Route 9.

“We’re going to demonstrate a fogger that sprays a quick drying disinfectant,” Bulay said. “We are going to use it in the auditorium on the seats and in the bathroom. Hopefully to give attention to let people know that when we do reopen, it’s going to be safe.”

HUDSON (NY), JANUARY 24, 2017: For her upcoming show in Hudson, from February 4 to February 27, the photographer and maker of “moving images,” B. Docktor, will feature new landscapes—all local—as well as selections from her iconic images of animals on the area’s picturesque farms. Docktor is known for being a long-time documenter of our region—not just the beauty of our landscape, but also of our people, farms, animals, towns, and our celebrations.

Using what she calls her “‘moving images’—“in both the physical and emotional sense,” she interjects— B is also presenting an innovative video presentation for the gallery’s front window that will showcase the full breadth of her work’s subjects. She calls this video project “a visual love poem to our area, featuring the beauty of our land, the glory of nature and animals, and the diverse celebrations of its people.”

At 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 13th, Concerts in the Village continues its seventh season with a program entitled Royal Handel. Featured will be CITV’s Broad Street Chorale, Broad Street Orchestra and soloists – 65 performers – in works chosen to highlight Handel at his most grand and colorful. The concert will be held at Kinderhook Reformed Church, in the Village of Kinderhook.

Led by David Smith, Artistic Director and Conductor, this concert will be CITV’s nineteenth. For the occasion over 60 musicians will be amassed, including guest soloists Katherine Rossiter (soprano), Daniel Moody (countertenor), Christopher Sokolowski (tenor), and Peter Rolfe Dauz (baritone).

The concert begins with the dramatic anthem Zadok the Priest, which has been sung at nearly every British coronation since 1727. Next tenor Sokolowski, widely praised for his remarkable technique and expressivity, will be featured in the seldom heard, highly virtuosic solo cantata Look down, harmonious saint, first performed in 1736. Composed in 1713, the great celebratory Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne follows. This multi-movement work opens with the famous aria “Eternal source of light divine” for countertenor and solo trumpet.

Following intermission Handel’s 1748 double concerto in B-flat for oboes, bassoons and strings provides a superb example of baroque vitality. Its dance-like rhythms and multiple echoing ensembles take full advantage of the technical mastery of the Broad Street Orchestra. To conclude Royal Handel, all of CITV’s solo, choral and instrumental forces are gathered to offer the magnificent Dettingen Te Deum, a large-scale work written in thanksgiving for the historic 1743 triumph of King George II over the French army. A more spectacularly festive conclusion to Royal Handel is difficult to imagine.

Says CITV’s Artistic Director David Smith, “The always imaginative Handel spared nothing in his conception of these powerful works. I am confident that listeners will find themselves lifted up, struck by the magnificence and grandeur of it all. Royal Handel will be a memorable concert experience.”

Soloists Katherine Rossiter and Daniel Moody will be making their CITV debuts. Christopher Sokolowski and Peter Rolfe Dauz were received with great enthusiasm at last year’s CITV performance of Alexander’s Feast. Rossiter and Dauz are second-year students in the Bard Graduate Vocal Arts Program, where they work with the eminent American soprano and teacher Dawn Upshaw. Sokolowski, a Tanglewood Fellow this past summer, has had a distinguished career performing throughout midwestern and northeastern United States. Countertenor Moody, also a Tanglewood Fellow, has sung here and in England. Critical acclaim of his singing has been enthusiastic: Praised as having a “vocal resonance, [which] makes a profoundly startling impression” (The New York Times) and for his “vivid and powerful” voice (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), Mr. Moody is equally known for his “sweet and melancholy sound” (The Washington Post) and ability to “pierce hearts” and “utterly silence a room” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer) with his expressivity and deep connection with audiences.

A contribution of $ 20 includes an on-site reception immediately following the concert. Kinderhook Reformed Church is located at 21 Broad Street (Route 9) in the Village of Kinderhook (corner of Broad and Church Streets). For further information please visit: http://www.concertsinthevillage.org and Facebook.

This event is made possible (in part) with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered through the Community Arts Grants Fund in Columbia County by the Greene County Council on the Arts. Generous funding has also been received from the Hudson River Bank and Trust Company Foundation, Kinderhook Bank, Stewart’s Holiday Match, and from many individual and business supporters.

Discussion topics will center on reader experiences — for example, the pluses and minuses of the epistolary novel, favorite characters, the lessons learned about life in wartime England, and the ways in which fiction may provide a means for more fully understanding a non-fiction truth.

Community Read received funding support from KeyBank Leadership Foundation and the Dairy Farmers of Cabot Cheese, and additional support from Taconic Hills Elementary and JR/SR High PTOs.

Roeliff Jansen Community Library, which is chartered to serve Ancram, Copake and Hillsdale, is located at 9091 Route 22, approximately one mile south of the light at the Hillsdale intersection of Routes 22 and 23.

HILLSDALE — When Bill Sullivan and his wife Lynne Chmurzynski started coming to Hillsdale from Long Island in 1976, they didn’t quite foresee themselves owning a historic property with multiple purposes.

But that’s exactly what happened. After completing intensive renovations on the historic property on Main Street in Hillsdale, Chmurzynski opened her dream consignment shop, Mirror Mirror Clothing, in November of 2014. Then, an Airbnb was created on the upper level.

Now, they have opened The Art Annex, which hosted its first exhibit, “Works on Paper,” Saturday afternoon featuring art from Ancram artist Betzie Bendis.

(Click the above link to read the rest.)

Traveling down country roads there is always something to grab your attention.
I was on my way to Old Chatham Shepherding Farm as I turned onto Shaker Museum Rd, I found this.

The Chatham Fair last night held at least 3 vendors openly displaying and selling confederate flag stickers, confederate flag magnetic signs, and small and large confederate flags.
It also held at least 2 vendors wearing hats with confederate flag details.

Yet this wasn’t all the Chatham Fair held last night.

It also held a terrifying event, when about 4 men and women lined up in an vengeful row, under their large display tent a friend and I were casually walking through, and – not 3 feet from my body – silently, angrily, threatened bodily violence if we didn’t immediately leave their tent.

At first I thought they were ganging up because of our silent search for confederate flags (These people had none that we saw.).
Slowly it became clear their rage was directed at us because they believed we were gay.

Theirs was a brutal act of homophobia that left me terrified, unnerved, unable to sleep.

Confederate flags and homophobic rage filled my evening with fear and anger.

For me, it’s important to continue to recognize the intersection between racism, homophobia, and violence against women.

Baldwin was born and educated in the Midwest. He came to New Lebanon with his first wife. They had one daughter, Jessica, and adopted another, Nicky. Baldwin taught in Berkshire County, according to his longtime friend Greg Hanna.
