Artist Betsy Braun Lane presents Racing on a Broken Road: The Ongoing Story of the AfricanAmerican Pioneers of Peekskill and Cortlandt February 21- April 19, 2015 Reception: Saturday, February 21, 1- 4 pm Snow Date: Sunday, February 22 1-4 pm
The Field Gallery of Peekskill is presenting Racing on a Broken Road, Betsy Braun Lane’s monumental exhibit of photography, archival documents, and oral tradition detailing the Peekskill and Cortlandt area’s African/ European/ Native American pioneers and patriots.
In Racing on a Broken Road, Braun Lane skillfully combines her work as an artist, photographer, historian and researcher. Weaving hours of interviews with the area’s long-established Moshier and Peterson families with found archival documents and rare photographs, the collected works form a powerful exhibit detailing 230 years of the African American experience in the Hudson Valley.
I can’t tell you how excited I am (and how lucky Peekskill is) to have Division Street Guitars putting on all-ages music events.
This weekend is the first official show with Joy on Fire from Baltimore and Blueblack from Long Island.
Here is the blurb from the Joy on Fire press pack:
Bass, drums and sax are a trio. JOY ON FIRE, however, is a triomassive — an insurgent kaleidoscope of sound greater than many multiples of its parts. Referencing the most daring jazz-rock fusionists in modern history, the band performs a spectrum of instrumentals best described as “punk-jazz/fuzz-rock” or “Zeppelin-meets-Coltrane.”
The show is at 10pm (after Buckwheat Zydeco at the Paramount!) and is only THREE BUCKS ($3)!!!
