Rhinebeck in November 2009

Beauty. Mystery. Nature Transformed

October 16th to November 10th

Hammertown Gallery, Rhinebeck

Each of the artists in “Beauty. Mystery. Nature Transformed” at the Hammertown Rhinebeck Gallery seek to preserve, translate and expand our worldview of our natural landscape and environment – while bringing the restorative energy of nature inside the walls of our home environment no matter where we live.   This exhibit is designed to inspire — and support our commitment to help our customers ‘love where you live’ while supporting the local community of artists and creative people.” Hammertown will also support the local community by donating 5% of art sales commissions to the Berkshire Taconic Foundation in support of arts education and creative programs that heal underserved children through the arts.  www.elisatucciart.com

Art For A Cause

October 17th – November 14th

Morton Memorial Library

Free Art Workshops for Middle School & High School Students in Rhinebeck! Art For a Cause is a series of Saturday workshops for 6th-12th grade students co-sponsored by Young Rhinebeck, Bard College and Morton Memorial Library & Community House. The focus of the fall, 2009 series will be book making and book reconstruction. WHEN: Saturdays, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon Oct. 17, 24, 31 and Nov. 14 (Note: No workshop on Nov. 7) WHERE: Morton Memorial Library & Community House 82 Kelly Street, Rhinecliff WHAT: In this series of four workshops led by Bard College art students, young artists of Rhinebeck will be learning how to create books! Our first two workshops will be devoted to taking apart old books, learning how they are put together, and turning them into art the students can call their own. The last two workshops will be all about making books: sewn books, accordion books, and even a little bit about hardcover books. By the end, each student will have made and designed their own notebooks, diaries, or sketchbooks, and will also make some to donate to a children’s organization of their choice. REGISTRATION: Space is limited and pre-registration is required. The workshop is limited to 20 students.

Rhinebeck Science Foundation Discovery Festival

November 7th   Rhinebeck High School/Bulkeley Middle School The second Rhinebeck Science Foundation Discovery Festival takes place on November 7th from 11 AM to 2 PM and is gearing up to be one of the biggest local events of the year. We’ve moved to a new, bigger location — the Rhinebeck High School/ Bulkeley Middle School — allowing us to offer a much broader scope of exhibits and activities for kids of all ages. Omega, Clearwater, Locust Grove, IBM, and the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies will be among the thirty plus exhibitors on hand. The Discovery Festival has been created specifically to show kids and their families just how cool the sciences can be. How? By making science an interactive, hands-on experience and by showing the way science touches our everyday lives in ways that are both profound and exhilarating. The Discovery Festival – it’s as much about having fun as it is about expanding your mind. Don’t miss it! www.rhinebecksciencefoundation.org
