exhibit

Colorama: From the George Eastman Museum, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls. For more than four decades, enormous advertisements displayed in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal affirmed a picturesque notion of everyday American life. The 18-foot-by-60-foot images depicted an idyllic nation: beautiful landscapes, holiday celebrations, world-changing historical events, family road trips and patriotism. This exhibition examines the captivating advertisements, offering insight into America, and the histories of advertising, photography and technology. Thirty-six reproduced images from the George Eastman Museum depict an idealized past for a new generation, and a welcome reintroduction for those who lived through the decades that helped shape photography. Organized by the George Eastman Museum. Exhibit runs through April 14.

From the Vault: Staff Selections, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren St., Glens Falls. Whitney-Renz and Hoopes galleries. With approximately 4,000 works in The Hyde’s permanent collection, it seems impossible to pick a favorite. But museum staff members — education, administration, security, operations, visitor services, finance and curatorial — have done just that. With selections that vary from prominent artists including Winslow Homer, Pablo Picasso and Elihu Vedder, and significantly more obscure artists such as Greg O’Halloran and the Master of Monte Oliveto, From the Vault provides a deeper look into The Hyde’s collection and insight into the people who do the behind-the-scenes work at the museum. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, closed Mondays, open from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Exhibit runs through March 31.

Between Feb. 25 and March 29, Opera Saratoga will present “Pinocchio” for school audiences. This whimsical 40-minute adaptation of the classic story by Carlo Collodi is the perfect introduction to opera for elementary school students, featuring music from operas by Mozart, Donizetti, Verdi, Offenbach and Pergolesi, adapted by John Davies and sung in English. Stepping into a new and unknown world, Pinocchio is deceived by the Wolf and the Cat and persuaded to disobey his father by skipping school in order to meet Dr. Dulcamara, an evil puppeteer. Realizing how unique Pinocchio is, Dulcamara captures him, with the hope of having him perform alongside his miraculous mechanical doll, Olympia. When Pinocchio and Olympia become friends, Dulcamara breaks Olympia in a temper tantrum. Pinocchio escapes and runs home, where he confesses to his father that he has been telling lies and disobeying him. Pinocchio’s father is grateful for Pinocchio’s honesty, forgives him and agrees to help rescue Olympia. Pinocchio and his father lead the authorities to Wolf, Cat and Dulcamara, and the bad guys are punished. As Pinocchio resolves to always tell the truth and share his problems with trusted grownups, he and his father head home to repair Olympia and begin life anew as a family of three. Through this adaptation of the story of Pinocchio, students will be exposed to operatic music and classical singing, while exploring important themes of self acceptance, the importance of respecting and listening to parents and, of course, telling the truth. Pinocchio is appropriate for pre-K to grade 6 audiences.

You will make new friends, develop new skills and learn something new and interesting at every single meeting. We are literally the best Toastmasters Club in Glens Falls. Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs with over 357,000 members. Our local club is special. We are an open, friendly and fun club, and all you need to bring is your desire to learn something new and your sense of humor. Do you love public speaking? Do you hate public speaking? You will love our group. You are welcome to show up to a meeting any time, but we encourage you to contact us first on the rare occasion that our meeting has been canceled or has changed location that month. Our meetings start promptly at 7 p.m., so I would encourage you to arrive around 6:45 p.m. so you can look over our meeting agenda and some of our members can welcome you and explain the meeting format. For more information on Toastmasters International, visit www.toastmasters.org. For more information on the Glens Falls Club (North Country Toastmasters Club 6295), visit northcountry.toastmastersclubs.org. Meetings are held the second and fourth Thursday of the month from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Holden Meeting Room on the second floor of Crandall Library. Questions? Email our VP of membership at vpm-6295@toastmastersclubs.org

Green Drinks Happy Hour, 5-7 p.m., Harvey’s Restaurant & Bar, 14 Phila St., Saratoga Springs. Green Drinks is a “green gathering” for those who work, volunteer or have a passion for promoting the environment, conservation and sustainability. Join us at Harvey’s in the Library Room on the first Thursday of every month to meet new people, learn about local green initiatives and share what you’ve been working on. In addition to our regular networking opportunities, each month we will feature a special topic and have local experts on hand to mingle and chat about those topics. Our March event is all about trees. Did you know that Sustainable Saratoga has an Urban Forestry Project that is dedicated to replanting the urban forest for current and future generations to enjoy? There is a planting event coming up on April 27, when 35 new trees will be added along our city streets. Members of the Urban Forestry Project will be in attendance to answer your questions about trees, including how you can get a free tree for your yard. We hope to see you there. Details: Cash bar. Happy Hour runs until 6:30 p.m. with half-priced drafts, wines and cocktails. Non-alcoholic drinks and food may also be ordered.
