Two Kingston Historic District walking tours offered

KINGSTON (May 23) - The first walking tour of the 2017 season of the Rondout National Historic District, offered by Friends of Historic Kingston, will take place on Saturday, May 27th , departing at 1 p.m. from the Kingston Visitors Center, 20 Broadway. 

The one-hour tour focuses on the rise of Rondout in the nineteenth century as a thriving maritime village during the era when the village was the terminus for the Delaware and Hudson Canal.  The rich legacy of commercial buildings, cast-iron storefronts, homes, and churches built by the various nationalities who emigrated to Rondout is viewed.  The tour fee is $10 per adult and $2 for children under 16.  Some uphill walking is involved.

This tour is led by FHK tour guides Nancy Chando and local historian Peter Roberts.

The monthly walking tour of the 1658 Stockade National Historic District, offered by the Friends of Historic Kingston, will take place on Saturday, July 3, departing from the Friends of Historic Kingston Museum at 1 p.m.

Following the street plan designed by Peter Stuyvesant in 1658, the tour walks the heart of the largest intact early Dutch settlement in New York State and the neighborhood where New York State was born in 1777.  Included is a tour of the interior of the c. 1812 Johnston House, the former home and showroom of nationally noted antiques dealer Fred J. Johnston where his collection of 18th and early 19th century furnishings and decorative arts, mostly American, are showcased in eight elegant room settings he designed.

Walking tour highlights include viewing the many eighteenth century limestone houses still standing in the Stockade District, and visiting the site of the drafting of the New York State Constitution in 1777 and the gravesite of New York’s first elected governor, George Clinton, in the Old Dutch Church Burying Ground.  The fee is $10 for adults and $5 for children under 16.  The tour departs from the Friends of Historic Kingston Gallery, corner of Wall and Main Streets, opposite the Old Dutch Church.  Reservations are suggested but not required.

Group tours on other dates can be arranged by request.  For information, visit


Collage: D is for Daisy
(by Daisy Dodge)

Art Exhibit: Point in Time, Works by Daisy Dodge at Studio Around the Corner

BREWSTER (May 23) - The Cultural Arts Coalition is thrilled to present Point in Time, works by Daisy Dodge, at Studio Around the Corner.

Dodge loves to take common objects and present them in an uncommon way. Each piece starts with an idea, then it takes on a life of itself and morphs into something else. Relying on a combination of technical precision and happy accident, each piece forms its own personality through the process of its creation. This is true of both her collage pieces as well as her paintings. Daisy wants to draw people in and have them connect to her work.

In her paintings, Daisy starts with collaged papers, fabrics and textures, then layers acrylic paints and glazes to form a color-bursting background upon which the object is then applied. A single subject, an everyday object, is a consistent theme in Daisy’s paintings, allowing the viewer to have steady focus of the exaggerated detail in the object while getting swallowed up in the carnival of color exhibited in each piece.

In her collage work, she combines a collection of antique and modern-day baubles, trinkets and found objects in an assemblage that attracts the eye. Each piece is completely unique, and draws the viewer in for a closer look. People find themselves getting lost in the sparkle & splendor of every nook and cranny. Some of the items spark nostalgia in viewers, as they recall an earring their grandma wore, or an old refrigerator magnet from their childhood; discarded or left behind on their way to a landfill. These pieces give life to forgotten treasures.

Daisy has been in several juried competitions, and continues to build her career as a fine artist. Her work can be viewed at She lives in Carmel, NY with her husband, Michael.
