Excited to invite everyone to Public Sewing Days with Amanda Browder February 29 and March 1st!

Wow, wow, wow! We had the first Public Sewing Days for our public art project with artist Amanda Browder this weekend – and we are overwhelmed and so excited for what's to come! People of all ages joined us, including a family of leather workers from Ecuador, an artist from Lima, Peru, a number of quilters from local guilds, and a group of recently resettled refugee women from Afghanistan and Syria. Talk about a community project!

WANT TO KNOW MORE?
A massive fabric sculpture will soon transform the facade of our landmark building in White Plains – all with the help of YOU, our community! Throughout the next few months, community members will help to create this artwork by donating fabric and working with the artist to arrange, pin and sew fabric.

MISSED THIS WEEKEND'S SEWING DAYS?
No worries! There are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved. Public sewing days will take place across the County for the next several months. Locations include ArtsWestchester, The Rye Arts Center, Pelham Art Center, India Center of Westchester Page, Greenburgh Public Library, Westchester Children's Museum, Blue Door, Katonah Museum of Art, Alliance Francaise de Westchester NY, Viking Sewing Gallery, The Arc Westchester and Bennett Conservatory of Music.

OPEN CALL—DEADLINE JUNE 16: WHERE DOES YOUR ART TAKE YOU? Art transports us to places real and imagined. We’re Not in Kansas Anymore: Journeys To Places Real and Imagined explores the places that inspire us. Sometimes it’s a place we’ve experienced, sometimes a place we’ve only dreamed. Where has your art taken you? Hastings-on-Hudson Arts Commission is calling artists to submit art works for a special exhibition, presented in association with Hastings Historical Society, commemorating actress Billie Burke (1884–1970), a stage and screen star and renowned comedienne adored for her role as Glinda the Good Witch in The Wizard of Oz. This movie classic, which premiered 80 years ago, transports us on a heroic magical journey. In tribute, we're asking artists, where does your art transport you? This exhibition marks the third in a series commemorating, through art and education, luminaries from the arts and sciences who lived or worked in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. The Burke Estate was the residence of Billie Burke and Florenz Ziegfeld, the Broadway impresario, on and off for 30 years. The site is now part of Hastings High School’s athletic fields on Farragut Avenue. ELIGIBILITY: Artists 18 years and older may submit up to three two- or three-dimensional finished artworks (or multiple images of the same work) in any media that responds to the theme, with a short description of why your place is important to you (50 words or less). Work may not exceed 80 inches in any direction. Artwork must be ready to hang. No proposals, please. Artists are responsible for delivery/pick-up of artwork. FEE: $25 entry fee. JUROR: Juror is Daniel Belasco, Executive Director, Al Held Foundation, and former curator of exhibitions and programs at Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in New Paltz, and The Jewish Museum in New York. DEADLINE: Midnight June 16. Submit here: https://hastingsonhudson.seamlessdocs.com/f/billieburke
we will be at the Sarah McKenzie opening on Friday May 3. Looking forward to it

HUDSON RIVER VIEWS IN HASTINGS: Abstract and representational art from 29 artists, plus an homage to Hudson River School painter (and Hastings own) Jasper Cropsey. Sept. 1-Nov. 3, Mon.-Fri., 9-4:30 pm. Presented by Hastings-on-Hudson Arts Commission and Newington Cropsey Foundation.
July 29! Okai
CALL TO ARTISTS: THE RIVER FLOWS BOTH WAYS The Hastings Village Arts Commission in association with The Newington Cropsey Foundation presents "The River Flows Both Ways," a juried exhibition of traditional and contemporary interpretations of the Hudson River, inspired by famed Hudson River School painter Jasper Francis Cropsey, who lived and worked in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. Flowing from the Adirondacks to the Atlantic, the Hudson River has been a muse for artists and explorers, inspiring the Hudson River School of landscape painting and sustaining a way of life for Native Americans, sailors, and industrialists for centuries. The river’s natural beauty is a source of fascination, as it flows both north and south with the tides. Thus, the title of our show is taken from the Native American name for The Hudson, Mahicantuck, “the river that flows two ways.” We invite all artists to show us one of two views of the river (or both), representational or interpretive. DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: June 22, 2018 NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE: June 30 DROP OFF: August 29, from 10 am – 1 pm EXHIBITION: September 1 to November 3, Hastings Village Hall Gallery, 7 Maple Avenue, Hastings-On-Hudson, NY OPENING RECEPTION: September 6, 6 – 8 PM PICK UP: November 4, 11 am - 1 pm, Hastings Village Hall Gallery Artists 18 years and older are eligible to submit a maximum of five entries of two-dimensional work in any media that responds to the Hudson River. Work may not exceed 80 inches in any direction, including the frame. Framed work must be wired and ready to hang. Unframed work should include instructions for installation. Our juror is Daniel Belasco, Executive Director of the Al Held Foundation, and former curator of exhibitions and programs at Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, and before that, the Henry L. Leir associate curator at The Jewish Museum. He holds a Ph.D. in Art History, Criticism and Conservation from New York University and a B.A. from Amherst College. Submit images to [email protected] with subject line “River Flows Both Ways.” Include a list of titles, (framed) dimensions, medium, and your name, address, email address, and phone number. Include a bio/CV. Entry fee of $25 is payable to Village of Hastings-On-Hudson by check, mail to Linda Loeb, Deputy Village Clerk, Hastings Village Hall, 7 Maple Avenue, Hastings-On-Hudson, NY, 10706. Your application is considered complete once the fee is received. Contact: Lisa Oswald, [email protected]
