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.

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.

Talking Pictures: "The Act of Killing" | Andrus On Hudson Senior Care Community, 185 Old Bway, Hastings
We will be screening "The Act of Killing" which was directed by Joshua Oppenheimer and produced by Werner Herzog and Errol Morris. The film won this past year's Academy Award for feature documentary, and when you see it, you will immediately know why. Oppenheimer interviews members of the death squads who were involved in the mass killings which took place following the military coup in Indonesia in 1965. As remarkable as these interviews are, the most astonishing part of the film is when these men happily re-create their deeds in the manner of the Hollywood films of which they are so enamored. I can unequivocally promise you that this film is unlike anything you have ever seen. It is also disturbing, powerful, and thought-provoking.

Friday, November 21 from 5pm - 9pm

Matt Turk and Friends [link] | First Uniterian Society of Westchester, 25 Old Jackson Ave, Hastings
Presented by Common Ground. The Acoustic Music of Jerry Garcia and Old and in the Way. Matt Turk can't remember the circumstances of horse trading that landed him a cassette copy of Old and in the Way, the seminal record by Jerry Garcia (banjo), David Grisman (mandolin), Vassar Clements (violin), Peter Rowan (guitar), and John Kahn (bass) in his hands. It's fitting somehow that soon after the legendary Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY reopened, with its bar auspiciously named, "Garcia's," that Matt would gather a group of fellow virtuoso musician friends for to celebrate the legacy of Old and in the Way and other acoustic music by Garcia with a residency at Garcia's in August 2013.

Saturday, November 22 @ 8pm
The Weight - Celebrating the Music of Levon Helm & The Band [link] | Tarrytpown Music Hall
A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation. Replicating the music of The Band is a tall order but interpreting the music of The Band is an art.

The Weight, a five-piece ensemble featuring Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante from The Band, Brian Mitchell and Byron Isaacs of the Levon Helm Band and Marty Grebb, who worked with Rick Danko and Richard Manuel of The Band, remains a vehicle through which we can continue to share those stories and dance to those back beats….Come and take a load off.

The Andy Statman Trio [link] | Irvington Town Hall Theater, 85 Main Street, Irvington
Presented by Common Ground. Had there been a planetarium in 19th century Galicia, or a kosher deli in Depression-era Kentucky, Andy Statman's music might have been playing in the background. Meandering through time, geography and culture, the man and his inimitable hybrid sound move freely among the before, the after, and the present.

Joe Crookston, with special guests The Levins [link] | First Uniterian Society of Westchester, 25 Old Jackson Ave, Hastings
Presented by Common Ground. Joe Crookston of Ithaca, New York, is an artist, writer, singer, guitar picker, painter, clawhammer banjo player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. You'll be pulled in by the magic and musical world he creates, and you'll end up in the moment, humming and buzzing with the rest of the crowd. He'll sing to you—you'll sing with him. He's plumbing for lyrical gold, like some kind of social archaeologist. Joe's story songs are universal, masterful and his concerts are a grand celebration of all of us. Come to a show … you'll ride along mystical, historical, and humorous roads, and twist through personal stories along the way—stories of amber eyes, Oklahoma towns, rattlesnake tails, Grandmother Moons, Galway heather, meter maids and silver crowns. At the end of the night, you'll leave inspired, with a renewed sense of what's possible. Joe appears tonight in a duet performance with Peter Glanville. Together as the BlueBird Jubilee, Joe and Peter have played to full houses at Festivals and Performing Arts Centers across the U.S.
