Our new season of Old Stone House activities starts off with a planning get-together on Monday, May 25th (revised date), at 7pm, right at the House. Bring your ideas for art shows, special celebrations, and other fun events, and help us make key decisions about the long-range future of this great local institution.
The Old Stone House is proud to present
a local sketchbook art program entitled
“Somewhere in the Catskills”
Recently the Old Stone House asked its community members "How do you see the Catskills?" We invited everyone to artistically explore the scenery, buildings, events and people that make our area so special. Participants created sketchbooks to serve as a visual archive of life in the Catskills.
Do you know these two people?
If you said Popeye and Olive Oyl, you’d be wrong! And that’s the fun of costume parties...you never know for sure who’s who.
So just for fun, we’re throwing an “End-of-Show” costume party on Saturday, Oct. 25th, from 7:30-midnight, complete with music, dancing, refreshments, and even a mystery door prize. Plus, some of your best friends and nearest neighbors will probably be there, too, perhaps masquerading as somebody (or some-thing) they’re not.
It’s all to celebrate not only the Halloween season, but also the final weekend of an ongoing exhibition of works by mixed-media artist Melinda Wallach. Her pieces are noteworthy for their frequent inclusion of truly odd “found” objects, among them scraps of old packaging, broken machinery, and discarded plastic shards. Her show concludes the following day, Oct. 26th, from noon-4pm.
While the costume party is free to all, guests are invited to bring along their own favorite beverages, some nibbles to share, and/or contribute $5-10 to defray overhead. And costumes, while encouraged, are completely optional.
