Cheryl Hajjar: De-Composition | Library Gallery, Dobbs Ferry Library, Main Street
Artist Statement: Visiting landfills and abandoned sites has become my passion of late. The sight of decay, broken shards of ceramic and glass, worn clothe and wood swollen and splintered with wetness fascinates me in its appearance. The textures and shapes layer with fading color and fractured form, creating a new composition yet leaving a trace of the original form. I find great beauty in that trace.
In these pieces I began with a camera to capture and flatten the scenes. Manipulating the image digitally and then adding ink, paper, glass, pastel, pencil, cloth, thread and wood, I have re-composed the de-composed, creating a new identity for such decay. I have tried to use a lot of repurposed material in composing the decay into some kind of order.

The Unknown Palisades – Lecture | Meet at the Dobbs Ferry Library Community Room, located a 55 Main St.
The cliffs and forested talus slopes of the Palisades rise to more than 600 feet above the river. In the mid 19th Century, New York builders quarried the Palisades for building materials, ship ballast, and for concrete aggregate. With the efforts of the New Jersey Federation of Women's Clubs, the Palisades Interstate Park Commission was established in 1900, and was granted the authority to purchase and manage the land. Through images and narrative, Eric Nelsen, longtime historical interpreter for Palisades Interstate Park, brings the story of the Palisades to life: its fishermen's villages and palatial estates, the epic struggle to preserve the ancient cliffs, and the thriving beaches and campgrounds of the Depression and New Deal era.
Co-Sponsors Dobbs Ferry Historical Society · Groundwork Hudson Valley · Hastings Historical Society · Westchester County Historical Society. Reservations:  Laura Compagni, compagnisabella@optimum.net or 646-670-3947.

Movie - Boyhood [link] | Irvington Town Hall Theater
Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

Opening Reception: Exhibit IRA BARKOFF [link] | Canfin Gallery, Tarrytown
"The beauty of the physical world becomes a metaphor for the capacity of the spirit to reveal itself". Ira Barkoff
Evocation of light is ever present in the romantic and experiential landscapes of Ira BARKOFF. His recent works convey the spontaneity and the maturity of the artist's hand and dedication to his life's subject the landscape. Reveling in nature's glory, the artist dictates from memory and utmost confidence, this familiar terrain, immortalizing the influence of light on his subject and thereby its dynamic essence. His canvases are suffused with color, his choices are rich effervescent hues; gleaming reminders of places and moments that captivate and enchant the viewer to participate in their own revelry and experience. With renewed assurance in his approach to his work Ira has abandoned the traditional landscape for the abstract; altering his approach and technique and allowing for the spontaneous to influence its direction. Born in 1934 in Brooklyn New York, Barkoff has enjoyed a long and celebrated career. He has a BFA from Pratt University, and has studied at the Art Students League with notables such as Robert Beverly Hale, and he continues to teach at the Washington Art Association.
