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.

Women Modernists: Selections from the Permanent Collection and Nova Southeastern University Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale, The Hyde Collection, 161 Warren Street, Glens Falls. Women Modernists: Selections from the Permanent Collection and Nova Southeastern University Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale Feibes & Schmitt Gallery through June. Women Modernists examines how Modernism breaks from traditions of the past to embrace abstraction and experimentation. Through willingness and flexibility to move between figuration and abstraction, artists such as Dorothy Dehner and Grace Hartigan communicate new ways of seeing and understanding the world around us. With influences as diverse as nature, the constructivist movement, and jazz, come see how women of the 20th century looked to the future.

For more information, visit the district website: www.HFCSD.org, or call 518-681-4206 during school hours. The Hudson Falls High School presents the thrilling tale, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. What makes a monster and what makes a man? The Hunchback tells the story of Quasimodo, the disfigured bell-ringer of Notre Dame, and his wish to one day be a part of the world outside of his tower. When he builds up the courage to attend the Feast of Fools, he meets Esmeralda, a caring gypsy who protects him from an angry mob. At the same time, Quasimodo’s master, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, and the new captain of the guard, Phoebus de Martin, fall in love with the beautiful gypsy. Adding to Quasimodo’s struggle is his punishments from Frollo, following years of psychological abuse. Also the danger posed by the gypsies, who are willing to kill any outsiders who find their way into their secret hideout. Before Paris is burned to the ground, will Quasimodo be able to save Esmeralda from Frollo’s lust and anger? Will she return Quasimodo’s affection? Who is the true monster of Notre Dame? The two-act musical is directed by Nathan St. John, with music direction by Diane Havern. Featuring music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and book by Peter Parnell, the musical is based on songs from the Disney film and the novel by Victor Hugo. Students ranging from grades 7 through 12 appear in the show and have proudly contributed their talents at all levels of production, from stage management to choreography, to publicity and set construction.* Although the musical uses songs from the Disney film, the show is based on the novel by Victor Hugo and is thus darker and explores more mature subject matter. *The Hudson Falls High School is one of 30 schools competing in the High School Musical Theatre Awards at Proctors.

Lake George Mom Prom 2019 Ticket Sales, Dunham’s Bay Resort, 2999 State Route 9L , Lake George. The American Disc Jockey Association is hosting the 6th Annual Lake George Mom Prom on Saturday, March 30 from 6-10 p.m. at Dunham’s Bay Resort in Lake George.

Thurman Maple Days, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Athol Road, Thurman. Sugaring season is in full swing in Thurman, the little town with a big maple industry, just outside of Lake George. In a region where historically more families than not tapped sugar maples to make syrup for pancakes and sugar for baking, late winter is a time of intensive labor. Today’s maple producers carry on the traditions of their forebears as they trek into the sugar bushes, often on snowshoes or wearing crampons, to drill holes, set taps and run or repair lines to carry sap to the sugar houses for boiling and processing it into a multitude of sweet treats. Beginning March 16 and 17, continuing Saturdays and Sundays through March 31, five Thurman maple producers — four of them the largest in Warren County — will open their sugar houses to show how this age-old art is practiced with the help of technological advancements. Each weekend offers open barns at our maple farms, all offering free tours of sugar bushes and sugar houses, with demonstrations and talks about tapping, evaporating, filtering and candy-making. Each has its own specialty: at Toad Hill, wagon rides to the sugar bush through a traditional covered bridge, and some non-traditional fun with a trebuchet; at the largest sugar bush in the area, Hidden Hollow, check out their special dark syrup; Adirondack Gold features “Tapper,” who invites young and old alike to visit traditionally tapped trees near the sugar house and listen for the first drop of sap in the bucket; our newest participating maple farm, Mud St. Maple, will entice you with their signature bourbon maple syrup; and Valley Road Maple Farm will feed you a pancake breakfast or lunch. Expect wonderful samples and great shopping for an expanded inventory of maple treats. Also hosting will be neighboring farms. At Martin’s Lumber, visit their shops and neighbor artisans with woodburning, quilting, homemade soaps, pottery, nature designs and paper art. Nearby Nettle Meadow farm offers tours to meet the dairy herd and sanctuary animals (weather permitting), along with sampling and shopping for unique cheeses. Whitefield’s Farm will offer farm products, with an emphasis on their all-natural turkeys, and Blackberry Hill Farm sells organic poultry and non-GMO pork. Activities at all sites run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Valley Road Maple Farm opens an hour early each day, serving pancakes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the shop open until 4 p.m. Read more and download the brochure and map from www.visitthurman.com. Be sure to take a camera and email your best shots to visitthurman@gmail.com for future event publicity. For more information, contact Randy Galusha at 518-623-4744 or toadhillmaple@gmail.com. This event is made possible, in part, by Warren County occupancy tax dollars granted by the town of Thurman.
