Jacques Serge Charlas, Five Decades of Creative Photography at Atelier Progressif

Dear Friends and Art Lovers,

We invite you to join us at the opening of Jacques Serge Charlas, Five Decades of Creative Photography at Atelier Progressif on Friday, May 6th, at 6:00 PM.

 

The Exhibition will showcase Jacques Charlas’ oeuvre including his first project in the early 1970s documenting the disappearance of Paris’ central market, Les Halles; the El Salvador revolution in the late 70s; coverage of the Soviet-Afghan War in the early 80s; and his story on Wall Street greed.  Later works in the show include Mr. Charlas’ Faces project, produced in the 90s, which portrays deeply surreal images found in ordinary objects; and his most recent body of work, in which he uses the camera as a brush and light as color to create digital paintings of contemporary abstract images.

Celebrity Waiter Event at Peekamoose June 4th

The only thing serious about this event is the cause! The fun gets underway at Noon sharp when the Celebrity Waiters will greet you and guide you through this extra ordinary event. The Waiters will be competing as to whom will get the most “Tips”, all of which are donated to the Margaretville Health Foundation. If you usually tip 20% you might want to have more “Tip Bucks” available as they will pamper and entertain you for more. You can ask them to sing your favorite song, dance with you, play you a tune or tell a joke or two. Bring your imagination and make your Celebrity Waiter work for his “tip”.

Can’t wait to join us? Reserve now. The luncheon is $60 not including tips. Can’t be there? Donate a tip and tell us which waiter should get it. More information? Contact Penny Vaccaro 845-586-2631 Ext. 3181 or email [email protected].

John Faso: Experienced politician faces voters who are fed up with "insiders"

In the increasingly negative race to replace retiring Republican Congressman Chris Gibson in New York's 19th Congressional District, former State Assembly Minority Leader John Faso has all the hallmarks of a traditional general election contender. But that might not help him, because 2016 is no traditional election year.

Nationally, maverick candidate Donald Trump has ousted more traditional Republican candidates from the race for president. In the race for the 19th Congressional District, which represents the Catskills and Hudson Valley, Faso’s opponents hope to do the same to him.

Faso, a Republican, began his campaign for Congress with high name recognition and a time-tested fundraising apparatus. He spent 16 years in the New York State Assembly from 1987 to 2002 and made an unsuccessful GOP gubernatorial bid in 2006 against Democrat Elliot Spitzer.

Now, Faso's status as an experienced politician and elected official has become both a blessing and a curse.  Read more
