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.

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.

‘The High Arctic — Land of the Polar Bear’ presented by Adirondack member John Schneider, 7-8:30 p.m., Saratoga Springs Public Library, 49 Henry St., Saratoga Springs. Experience the High Arctic through the stories and photographs of longtime Adirondack member John Schneider. John and his wife Eileen spent two weeks on the trip of a lifetime, aboard a 150-passenger expedition cruise ship traveling from Svalbard, Norway to Greenland and Iceland, coming within a little more than 600 miles of the North Pole. They then spent 10 days on their own touring southern Iceland. Their reason for taking the cruise was to see polar bears. John would have been satisfied seeing just one, but ended up seeing more than 20, a highlight of his many travels. Along the way, they visited a Greenland Inuit village, boated close to a large group of walruses and calving glaciers, and spotted bear prints on a beach, reindeer, seals, blue and humpback whales, thousands of sea birds, miles of lupine, and Icelandic sheep and horses. Sponsored by the Adirondack Mountain Club and Saratoga Springs Public Library. No registration required.

Did you know there is a Toastmasters group right here in Glens Falls? We meet twice a month at the Crandall Library. We are a group for people who want to practice communication skills, including public speaking and leadership, to develop and improve lifelong skills that will help you in your career, your personal endeavors and your relationships. 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.
