I am excited to announce several new cultural initiatives I am bringing to Kingston, NY this summer.

The Kingston Festival of the the Arts explodes upon the scene this August 24. This is an all inclusive city-wide celebration of arts and culture, with a call to artists everywhere to come and create and re imagine this beautiful city. The whole of Kingston, indoor and outdoor spaces, will become a palette for creative exploration and unlimited fun– from cutting-edge chamber opera, theater, modern dance, fine arts, graffiti art, street performances, pop up galleries, multi- media, world music, kids shows, film- you name it, there is sure to be something to thrill everyone.

The Festival has just partnered with Spiegeltent Productions to bring a summer of wonderful performances to the historic San Severia Restaurant Tent next to UPAC every weekend. We open this Thursday with Peter Wetzler and his international improvisational ensemble The Repeatos. On Friday we are delighted to welcome the Lady Esther Gin and her Girls to San Severia for an evening of uproarious fun and delight. Program details are below and will be posted here as they develop.


I am proud to also announce the opening of our new art space, The Uptown Gallery in the Stockade District in Kingston. We opened last weekend with a fabulous exhibition by Woodstock painter Fred Duignan. We will be rotating art shows coupled with intimate performances and talks.

I hope you can come to Kingston and enjoy its many delights this summer.

With warmest wishes
