Washington Square at Opus 40

 

This is what Washington Square in Greenwich Village looked like on a Sunday morning in the 50s and 60s -- just a bunch of folks bringing guitars and banjos, joining together in impromptu jam sessions, or gathering around and lending their voices to a favorite song. New York's proper Parks Commissioner, Newbold Morris, described them as people who "come from miles away to display the most terrible costumes, haircuts, etc. and who play bongo drums and other weird instruments, attracting a weird public."

Well, people still love to play weird instruments, wear terrible costumes, and get together to make music. So Opus 40 is recreating those Washington Square days on the first Sunday of each month throughout the summer. Admission is free to anyone who brings an acoustic instrument.

Saugerties Artists Group Show

Saugerties Artists Studio Tour 2016 kicks off with a reception for the annual group show at The Gallery at Opus 40. This is a great opportunity to meet the artists, preview their work, pick up a tour map if you don't already have one, and plan your studio visits over the next couple of days. The tour itself is from 10 a.m - 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14. The studios of over 40 artists will be open, and the public is invited to see the work as it is created in the studio, talk to the artists, and often see demonstrations of some unique techniques.

The tour includes the studio of Tad Richards in the Barbara Fite room of the Fite family residence at Opus 40
