Landscapes for Landsake, AFI 100 Returns

by Shawn Stone on October 10, 2013


SAVING UPSTATE AMERICA ONE FARM AT A TIME, VIA ART  This weekend is the 12th Annual Landscapes for Landsake Art Exhibition at Maple Ridge Farm in Coila. (If you haven’t heard of Coila, it’s more-or-less halfway between Greenwich and Cambridge at 172 State Route 372.) All the landscape art, which ranges from realist to abstract, is for sale; 50 percent of sales go to the artists, and the other 50 percent goes to support the Agricultural Stewardship Associations’ farmland preservation efforts. It’s a win-win for everyone. Here are the details: The preview party is from 6-8 PM tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 11) and tickets cost $25; the public opening Saturday (Oct. 12) is from 2-6 PM and costs $5 at the door; Sunday and Monday admission is free from noon to 4 PM. For more info, and to buy tickets to Friday’s party, visit www.agstewardship.org.

YOU WON’T NEED A BIGGER SCREEN  In case you didn’t notice, the AFI 100 film series at the GE Theatre at Proctors recently resumed after a brief hiatus. Last Monday they screened Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; this Monday (Oct. 14) they’ll be screening Jaws at 2:30, 5 and 7:30 PM. Tickets are $5. Call 346-6204 for info.
