Exhibition: For The Love Of Jazz by Nancy Ostrovsky, Retrospective of Music Paintings
Jun 5 @ 10:00 am – Jul 8 @ 5:00 pm
Exhibition: For The Love Of Jazz by Nancy Ostrovsky, Retrospective of Music Paintings @ UNISON Arts Center | New Paltz | New York | United States

For more than 36 years Ostrovsky’s “Painting To Music” on stage with musicians as they play, uses the immediacy of the music and environment to record the performance in a highly original and innovative context.
Born in North Africa and raised throughout Asia, Ostrovsky’s paintings reflect growing up in Taiwan, the Philippines and Bangladesh. This left her with images about universal themes of human aloneness and interactions that occur in all cultures.
She has worked with musicians of the highest caliber – to include David Murray, Fred Hopkins, Erica Lindsay, Roswell Rudd, Glynis Loman, Leonard Brown, Lisa Thorson’s JazzArtSigns, Syd Smart, Thurman Barker, Elizabeth Panzer, Ferdinand Forsch, Hugh Brodie, Chris Sullivan, Joe Morris, Dandelion Dance Theatre and Tony Perez, among others.
Live paintings have been created in venues ranging from jazz clubs to outdoor festivals, such as the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Knitting Factory, The Fabrik- Germany, The John Coltrane Memorial Concert, Rochester School of Music, USIA, Massachusetts College of Art, The International Festival of Media Art Media Future, Germany, ODC San Francisco , Electric Lodge, LA, Very Special Arts/ JazzArtSigns and the Festival of Women Improvisers.
Ostrovsky has exhibited worldwide, and her work is included in many private and public collections.

Wayfinder 2017 Summer Day Camps in the Hudson Valley : UNISON Day Camp Week 1
Jul 10 @ 9:00 am – Jul 14 @ 1:00 pm

Imagine a world where heroes and villains engage in a never-ending battle between good and evil, where the laughter of faeries is echoed by the roar of dragons, where powers exist that can raise the dead, heal the wounded, and harm the living, where oracles prophesize and rogues slip quietly into the night…

At Wayfinder summer camps, we teach a decades-tested core curriculum of theatrical skills, athletic play, and community awareness which is interwoven into a culminating Adventure Game– a chance for participants to explore imaginary worlds with new perspectives and new identities.  Over the years, our brand of fantasy roleplaying has proven itself to be a powerful tool for self-exploration, as well as for building confidence, empathy, communication and leadership skills.

Our unique programming demonstrates the power of respect and positive relationships, that there is cooperation even in competition, and that everyone is more capable than they think they are.

Pick up/ Drop off schedule is as follows:

Mon 9am-4pm

Tues 9am-4pm

Wed 9am-4pm

Thurs 9am-4pm, Adventure Game 6pm-9pm

Fri 9am-1pm

You can either bring lunch or we can stop at a deli to pick up sandwiches.

Attendees are asked to bring their cameras, many rolls of film, extra batteries and memory cards, tripods, sunblock, bug repellent, a towel, and plenty of water. Also, wear sturdy, waterproof shoes, for walking through streams.

Dan McCormack  is an Ulster County photographer and the head of the Photography program at Marist College, where he specializes in nude figure imagery.
