ICELAND: Artists Respond to Place [link] | Katonah Museum of Art
The austere, beguiling landscape of Iceland functions as muse and material for its artists. Innately attuned to dramatic physical changes and extreme solar rhythms, Icelandic artists carry within them a heightened awareness of the environment as a dynamic living entity. This is the first museum exhibition in the United States to focus exclusively on the rich and complex relationship of contemporary Icelandic artists to the singular geography of their island nation. This KMA-originated exhibition showcases twelve artists whose works cover a broad range of formal approaches and media, including painting, photography, sculpture, site-specific wall-drawings, and video installation.

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.

Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work [link] | Jacob Burns
"One of the most truthful documentaries about show business I've seen. Also maybe the funniest... She remains one of the most transgressive and fearless of comedians, and one of the quickest, fastest and most merciless. The doc shows a life force of formidable energy." (Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times)
Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work peels away the mask of the iconic comedian and exposes the struggles, sacrifices, and joy of living life as a ground breaking female performer. The film is an emotionally surprising and revealing portrait of one the most hilarious and long-standing career women ever in the business.
Ricki Stern/Anne Sundberg. 2010. 84 m. NR. US. IFC Films.

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.
