Lecture: In the Realm of the Goddess

  • CAS Arts Center

For most of the human experience, the image of the creative force that animates the universe was feminine, an archetype was expressed in art as the Goddess. But the advent of new religions, including Christianity, ushered in the dominant male paradigm in cultures around the world. 

How and why did this happen? Come and discover through Hana Marritz's lecture, featuring colorful images showing how the journey of the goddess has unfolded in art over time. 

Hana Marritz is a lifelong artist and teacher. She taught high school art in the Bronx and now lives and works as an artist in Equinunk, PA. She works in collage and chicken wire sculptures and exhibits at the Eva Gallery. She an award-winning author/photographer of seven children’s books and is a working shamanic practitioner.

Film and Talk: A Midwinter's Tale

Film and Talk: A Midwinter's Tale

  • Laundry King

Join CAS at the Laundry King at 65 Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY for a special screening of the film A Midwinter's Tale (1995), featuring a talkback with programmer Bradley Diuguid. 

Writer/director Kenneth Branagh serves up Hamlet on wry with this silly salute to thespians. This romantic comedy took a merry spin on Shakespeare's best-known tale, featuring actors who later starred in Branagh's classic (and much more serious) film version of Hamlet in 1996. If you liked Waiting for Guffman, Spinal Tap, or Slings and Arrows, you'll love A Midwinter's Tale!

To be or not to be? To act or not to act? The questions are the same to Joe, a struggling (read: jobless) actor whose every sinew and synapse cries out to perform and to soften the blow of not landing a part in a megabudget sci-fi movie. So in the stalwart (read: desperate) tradition of actors everywhere, Joe vows to put on a show, a special (read: even more desperate) version of the greatest play in the English tongue. What better way to celebrate Christmas than with the Bard's gory tale of murder and revenge? 

For a preview of the film, click here to watch the trailer online

Runtime: 98 minutes. Black and white. This film is rated R. Contains some profanity and adult situations. 

Presented as part of our “Year of Shakespeare” at CAS, a festival celebrating the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s life with a year-long slate of live performances, films, and discussions. 

Tickets by $5 suggested donation accepted at the door. Presented as part of the "CAS Film Club" series.

Laundry King: The Borscht Belt

  • Laundry King

Marisa Scheinfeld will speak at the Laundry King on Saturday, September 3 at 2pm, where she will show selections from her photographic series and upcoming book which contains 129 photographs and a selection of Borscht Belt ephemera. Her book will be available for pre-order. Co-sponsored by the Livingston Manor Free Library

Today the Borscht Belt is recalled through the nostalgic lens of summer swims, Saturday night dances, and comedy performances. But its current state, like that of many other formerly glorious regions, is nothing like its earlier status. Forgotten about and exhausted, much of its structural environment has been left to decay. The Borscht Belt, which features essays by Stefan Kanfer and Jenna Weissman Joselit, presents Marisa Scheinfeld’s photographs of abandoned sites where resorts, hotels and bungalow colonies once boomed in the Catskill Mountain region of upstate New York. Her assembled images of abandoned, demolished, and repurposed buildings are significant documentation of a pivotal era in American Jewish history and Catskill history. 

This event is free and open to the public, and donations will be accepted at the door. The Borscht Belt will be released on October 4, 2016 by Cornell University Press
