Date/Time: 3/1/2020 - 3/22/2020 (10:00 am - 05:00 pm)

Wood and Hoopes Galleries January 19 to March 22, 2020
Years before the Civil Rights Movement forced white Americans to see the disparities between white and black America, Dox Thrash (1893–1965) gave the nation an inside look at the plight of blacks, living in a country divided by segregation. This exhibition examines the artist’s portrayals of life in rural Georgia, urban Philadelphia, and World War II, and those chronicling the development of black artists and society, as the walls of segregation began to crumble.
General Admission $12, Seniors (60+) $10. Free for Children. Free with ID for Students, Active Military & Family or Veterans. Hours: Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm, Sunday, noon to 5 pm, Closed Mondays and National Holidays.

About the bands:
THE SWITCH
Founded in 2011 The Switch is a blues and funk band combining four seasoned Upstate NY musicians. Their first album, “Slim Pickins” (2017), was recorded in Nashville by legendary producer Peter Young. Two years later, they recorded a live album at the historic Strand Theatre. Both albums showcase the high-energy, soulful funkiness that makes them unique compared to most Rock ‘n’ Roll bands. The musicians are Evan Malone on vocals, Tyler Calzada on drums, James Wood on bass, and Johnny Saris on guitar.
BLUE MOON BAND
The Blue Moon Band was formed in 2008 by two friends, Bill Cambell and Jason Saris. Both veterans of other bands, Bill and Jason found other local musicians who shared their love of music and didn’t want to play the “Same old songs”. Based out of the Lake George area The Blue Moon Band is a classic rock, blues and funk band playing covers, original songs and original interpretations. Blue Moon prides its self on an eclectic mix of music you will call the “Sound track of your life.” With six pieces, Bill Cambell [guitar and vocals], Jason Saris [guitar and vocals], Les Lappel [bass and vocals], Tom Alfonso [Drums and vocals], Kris Gage [percussion and vocals] and Everette Ramos [percussion and harp] the Blue Moon Band offers a wider variety of musical styles. From Santana to Elvis, Green Day to Jimi Hendrix, James Brown to Radio Head, and everything in between Blue Moon has something for everyone.

Wood and Whitney-Renz Galleries January 19 to April 26, 2020
Francisco Goya (1746–1828) used the privilege provided him as portraitist of the monarchy and aristocracy, to create a series of etchings critiquing Spanish life at the end of the eighteenth century. With them, Goya took aim at what he saw as backward thinking: a church that hunted heretics, peasant superstitions, and the upper class’s brutal treatment of the poor. Goya is considered the first Modern artist, for his innovative painting techniques and social commentary.

OAAS Seeks arts and crafts vendors for fundraiser

Wilton — Operation Adopt A Soldier (OAAS), an all-volunteer non-profit, is seeking arts and crafts vendors to staff its April 18 Arts and Crafts Fair at the group’s temporary headquarters at 891 Saratoga Road (Route 9) in Wilton.

The rain-or-shine event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. that day and take place inside and outside the building that formerly housed Farrell Oil, adjacent to the Route 9/Ballard Road intersection. Vendors may begin setting up at 8 a.m.

A 12-foot-by12-foot space costs $50. Spaces will be assigned; vendors are responsible for providing a table, chairs and — if located outside — covering for their booths. OAAS is not responsible for vendor sales taxes; alcohol and pets are not allowed on the property.

Vendor applications and fees (checks should be made out to OAAS) are due by March 15. The cancellation policy will be stated on vendor paperwork.

Further information and registration are available by calling or texting Sherry Fabian, event chair, at 518.522.2472, or calling OAAS Founder/Chairman Cliff Seguin at 518.260.9922 or emailing wiseeagle1@yahoo.com. Information is available on the group’s website at www.operationadoptasoldier.org.

OAAS mails comfort kits to U.S. military personnel serving in areas of conflict around the world. The group relies solely on donations of items and money from the public, as well as fundraisers, to fill the kits, each of which costs about $12 to mail. OAAS sent more than 1,000 kits leading up to the last Christmas holiday to ensure they reached military personnel by Dec. 25, and has sent well over 300,000 since its 2003 founding.
