Some Arts news we thought you might like to know:

The Alternet Finds a Home in Pawling

On July 16th, the contributors to "The Alternet," a collaborative project in a library card catalogue cabinet, celebrated its becoming part of the permanent collection of The Akins Free Library, in Pawling, New York (directions and hours).  The catalogue drawers contain about 15,000 catalogue-card-sized art works by more than 70 artists across the country, including at least four with connection to Croton and/or CCoA:  Marcy B. Freedman, Steve Jacoby, Sheilah Rechschaffer, and Ilse Schreiber-Noll. For a complete list of the contributing artistis, go to this Facebook link..  

Many of the artists produced around 300 small works for the project, some others collaborated or worked as a group to produce 300 card works.  The works are in many styles (including cartoon, impressionism, color-field, realist); moods (including humorous, fanciful, political, commemorative, advice, observation, iconic, decorative); and media (including ink, water color, photograph, collage, word art).  This project was inspired, motivated, curated, sent on the road, and finally placed by Carla Rae Johnson, a Peekskill artist.  Literally, a museum in a cabinet, it invites the curious to leaf through the works just as one once was able to browse among physical library catalogue cards.  

And the Akins is itself an unusual and interesting place: it also has a dense but fascinating natural history museum in its basement, and local and Quaker historical objects in its second floor, and a plethora of books, old and not so old.  All in a quaint building in beautiful coutryside of horse meadows and forest about an hour north of Croton.  A worthwhile excursion on a beautiful day.

And at the Croton Free Library
