WHAT: Joint Exhibition Celebrating Maverick Centennial At Byrdcliffe And WAAM

WHEN: Music in the Woods: One Hundred Years of Maverick Concerts opens in a joint reception on July 25, 2015 from 5-7 p.m., and runs in WAAM’s Towbin Wing through Sept. 26 and at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts of the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild through Aug. 30.

WHERE: In WAAM’s Towbin Wing through Sept. 26 and at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts of the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild

DETAILS: Three cultural organizations whose antecedents established the Woodstock Art Colony in the early 20th century—Maverick Concerts, the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, and the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum (WAAM)—join in this historic exhibition. Marking the importance of music in Woodstock’s early history, the exhibition particularly celebrates Maverick Concerts, the oldest continuous summer chamber music festival in the United States. Curated by Susana Torruella Leval, a part-time Woodstocker for 40 years, the exhibit marks the importance of music in Woodstock’s early history, and runs concurrently with Maverick’s centenary season, which continues all summer at its historic hall, built by hand in 1916. “Music in the Woods” includes paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, prints, and memorabilia that capture the early history of Woodstock’s free, artistic spirit, and contextualize fascinating personalities of the Maverick Colony, including Hervey White, Maverick’s founder and animating genius, and sculptor John Flannagan, creator of its monumental icon, the Maverick horse. Curator Susana Torruella Leval will give a talk reflecting on the concept of the “Maverick spirit” at WAAM on July 26 at 2 p.m.
