If you’re not familiar with the
Agricultural Stewardship Association you should get up to speed on them, because these are the guys who are saving much of our glorious open spaces from evil intent. To fund that effort, in part, they are hosting their 8th Annual Landscapes for Landsake Art Exhibition. The Opening
Reception will be held Saturday, October 10th from 3 to 6 p.m. in the
historic barn at Maple Ridge, 172 State Route 372, in Coila. (Driving Route 372 is an adventure in its own right.) Admission
on Saturday is $5, children and students are free. The gallery will
also be open Sunday and Monday, October 11th and 12th from 12 to 4 p.m.
or the following week by appointment. You’ll go because you want to see many of the best Battenkill-based artists all in one place, including:
Corrina Aldrich, Constance Alexander, Paul Baker-Porazinski, John
Begin, Michael Burke, Valerie Craig, George Dirolf, Kathryn Edwards,
Stu Eichel, Dominick Guida, Clarence King, Karen Koziol, Dona Ann
McAdams, Leah McCloskey, Virginia McNeice, Susan Harding Merancy, Bob
Moylan, Harry Orlyk, Leslie Parke, Leslie Peck, Barbara J. Sussman,
Brian Sweetland, Mark Tougias, George Van Hook, Laura Von Rosk,
Lawrence White and Regina Wickham.
You’ll see that Art & Agriculture really are what the Battenkill Valley is all about, and you’ll be amazed at how inspiring this land of ours can be.
