Rondout West Strand Historic District

Historic Kingston narrated walking tours May-October

KINGSTON (May 5) - The 2016 season begins with the Stockade District Walking Tour on May 7 at 1pm. This tour follows the street plan designed by Peter Stuyvesant, Director General of the New Netherland Colony, in 1658 when he ordered the early European settlers to move their scattered homes to a central fortified location. Today, Kingston’s uptown business area, the district is the largest early Dutch settlement surviving in New York State and, also, the neighborhood where New York State was born in 1777.

Walking tour highlights include viewing the many eighteenth century limestone houses still  standing in the Stockade District, the site of the drafting of the New York State Constitution in 1777 at the Ulster County Courthouse and the gravesite of New York’s first elected governor, George Clinton, in the Old Dutch Church Burying Ground.  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 anddecorative arts, mostly American, are showcased in eight elegant room settings he designed.

The fee is $10 for adults and $5 for children under 16. The tour departs on every first Saturday of the month from the Friends of Historic Kingston Gallery, corner of Wall and Main Streets, opposite the Old Dutch Church.

Chinese folk artists visit with Orange County NY Arts Council

SUGAR LOAF (February 15) - A delegation of Chinese folk artists led by Deputy Secretary General of Chinese Folk Literature and Art Association Mr. Lv Jun met recently with the Orange County Arts Council for an exchange of creative ideas at Storm King Art Center in Mountainville.

The visit was initiated by Peter Shi, Warwick resident and CEO of Amosoon Inc., an organization dedicated to fostering US-China cultural and academic exchange. Amosoon has been involved in cultural exchange efforts for many years and has strong connections in both China and the United States.

The Chinese artists discussed their art and the breadth of Chinese tradition and history in which they are founded. They also asked questions about how and where American artists sell their work and how the Arts Council supports them. It was a discussion that was both philosophical and practical. After the meeting at Storm King Art Center, the artists visited the studio of professional portrait artist Andrew Lattimore and had the opportunity to see Andrew’s work and ask him about how he does business.

Led by China Folk Literature and Art Association, these Chinese folk artists also visited the Queens Library in Flushing on January 31 and the Brooklyn Public Library on February 1 to kick off their cultural trip to the US. During their library visits, not only did the artists showcase the unique artworks and handicraft of their respective Chinese art forms, they also explained the history, tradition, and evolution of these arts, fostering a better understanding and improved cultural exchange between China and the US.

After meeting with the Orange County Arts Council, the Chinese folk artists presented their works and handicraft to the Middletown Retirement Home and the Albert Wisner Library in Warwick. They went to the Brooklyn Public Library and the Orange County Chinese School on February 6th to celebrate Chinese lunar new year with their authentic artworks and grateful hearts. Around February 11th, they will also visit Washington D.C. for another round of cultural dialogue.
