Do not touch or lean over displays. - We have asked our vendors to pre-package everything they possibly can. We hate all the plastic too but it minimizes food exposure and maximizes grab-and-go purchasing. We apologize if that means you can't get items in your preferred amount. - There will be no food sampling or cooking in the market. Please support vendors who you usually buy ready-to-eat food from by purchasing some of their packaged products. - Keep bikes and dogs outside the market area. - If you have pre-ordered bring your order summary with you to speed pick up. https://www.facebook.com/events/339840376999336/?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A51%2C%22source%22%3A5%2C%22action_history%22%3A[%7B%22surface%22%3A%22page%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22main_list%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22%5C%22[]%5C%22%22%7D]%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D

Showcasing more than 300 objects—including rock memorabilia, photographs, and concert posters—the New-York Historical presentation highlights Graham’s personal connections to New York, beginning with a site-specific installation of “The Joshua Light Show,” the trailblazing liquid light show conceived in 1967 by multimedia artist Joshua White that served as a psychedelic backdrop to Graham’s concert productions in New York.

Bronxville Public Library

This is a Zoom event.  To register, click here.For more than a century, Hollywood has relied on star power as the most reliable way to draw an audience. From  the early days of silent movies, when Mary Pickford was able to command $10,000 a week to modern times, when actors like Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks are guaranteed $20 million (or more) a picture, the film studios have recognized the crucial role stars played at the box office. This presentation will look at the history of movie stardom—how originally film actors weren’t even identified by name, how Mary Pickford became “America’s Sweetheart” and the first real film star, how the Hollywood studios manufactured stars like Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, and Lana Turner during its Golden Age, how the star system changed once television came on the scene, and how actors like Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, and Denzel Washington ushered in a new definition of stardom during the last few decades.Presented by Brian Rose.  Brian Rose was a Professor in the Department of Communication and Media Studies at Fordham University’s College at Lincoln Center, from 1982 until his retirement in 2020. He’s written several books on television history and cultural programming, and conducted more than a hundred Q&A’s with leading directors, actors, and writers for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, the Screen Actors Guild, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Directors Guild of America.

Join Pelham Art Center for a virtual studio visit with Diana Schmertz, exhibiting artist in Domestic Brutes. “I am interested in the systems people create in order to organize what they perceive in the world around them. These systems can be based in science, religion, psychology, philosophy or politics. No matter how cerebral a system or idea may appear, it is always experienced through our physical senses. In order to communicate balance between reason and the senses I paint imagery of the body expressing emotional understanding juxtaposed with systems of verbal and/or mathematical reasoning. In my recent work I laser cut watercolor paintings transforming the paper into an object that is made out of words. By using two strongly contrasting techniques, handmade and machine made, the physical work reinforces the conceptual idea that sensory/emotive understanding is fundamentally connected with analytical logic. The final art pieces are objective and intuitive, mechanical and intimate. Whether the viewer chooses to focus on the “rationality” in the text or the “sensory” in the bodies each remains equally significant within the physical object itself.” Please note: Pelham Art Center zoom links are sent by email 1-2 hours prior to event.

In bright colors she depicts American life with sincerity, nostalgia, and dark humor. She draws on a wide range of influences from art history and contemporary narrative painting to music and folklore. While her paintings sometimes seem magical and dreamlike, the details are always drawn from the humble reality of life, both domestic and natural, in the Appalachian mountains and foothills where the artist has mostly lived.
