First Sullivan County Chamber Orchestra to be established

MONTICELLO (August 23) - Thanks to a $10,000 matching grant from Sullivan County, Nesin Cultural Arts (NCA) will administer the establishment of the first Sullivan County Chamber Orchestra (SCCO). The time necessary to create the orchestra will be donated by NCA faculty and co-founders of the Aspiring Young Musicians program and coordinators for the NCA Summer Music Academy. The Inaugural Concert is scheduled for Saturday, September 10th at 7 pm at the Eugene D. Nesin Theatre for the Performing Arts at 22 St. John Street in Monticello. A special “Meet the Musicians” Gala Reception will be held the same evening from 9 to 11 pm at Mr. Willy’s on Route 42, Monticello.

Series One is entitled: “Classics of the Ages”. It will also be performed the following afternoon, Sunday, September 11th at 3 pm at the Liberty Museum and Arts Center, 46 South Main Street, Liberty, NY. The Artistic Director is Principal Bassist Andrew Trombley. The Orchestra Manager is Principal Violinist Akiko Hosoi. Former Liberty School District Director of Music Gary Siegel hails the new county orchestra as being “One of the most historic and exciting happenings in the county in decades.”

The soloist for the first concert is Lydia Hong, Principal Second Violin of the New York City Ballet Orchestra. Hong is a 2009 Juilliard grad who studied under the tutelage of Itzhak Perlman and Donald Weilerstein. Hong has soloed with many orchestras including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The SCCO will include outstanding Sullivan County musicians and musicians from the NYC area, many of whom are freelance artists.

Tickets for Series One are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors. Students with ID are free. Season tickets for three concerts ($50) and Gala tickets ($30) may be purchased online at:, at the door, or by mail to: NCA, PO Box 249, Monticello, NY, 12701.

The SCCO’s mission is to serve the community and elevate the quality of life for all generations through artistic expression and cultural experiences; to inspire a viable renaissance; promoting a positive economic resurgence; and supporting physical and emotional wellbeing by enhancing the cultural fabric of our community. Future concerts will be held in Monticello and at St. James Church in Callicoon in January, as well as two concerts which are slated for next June.


Tomlin Still Life Outward

Dorsky Museum announces Bradley Walker Tomlin: A Retrospective

NEW PALTZ (July 18) - The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, in partnership with the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, N.Y., is organizing the first retrospective and catalogue of renowned American painter Bradley Walker Tomlin (1899–1953) since 1975.

Organized by Daniel Belasco, the Dorsky’s curator of exhibitions and programs, Bradley Walker Tomlin will be on display at the Dorsky Museum from Aug. 31 through Dec. 11 in the museum’s Morgan Anderson Gallery. A public opening reception will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, from 5–7 p.m.

Tomlin is best known as a key figure in Abstract Expressionism and a longtime resident of the Woodstock art colony. The time is long overdue for a reappraisal of this brilliant painter who played an essential role in two generations of American art.

Bradley Walker Tomlin consists of more than 40 paintings, works on paper, photographs and printed materials, which chart Tomlin’s career arc from his magazine illustrations of the 1920s to the large-scale abstract paintings he produced in the 1950s. Exhibition highlights include original cover illustrations for House & Garden from the Condé Nast Archive, Art Deco-influenced still life paintings, Cubist/Surrealist paintings and major Abstract Expressionist canvases.
