Furnace Gallery Opens May 1 In the Heart of Falls Village

Don’t expect any pastoral landscapes. Furnace: Art on Paper Archive, the decidedly contemporary gallery space opening on Falls Village’s quiet Main Street is as modern and minimalist as its art on display is bold and geometric.

Artists at Work

Father-and-daughter artists Julian and Tilly Strauss will open their studios in Amenia, N.Y., as part of the ARTmostNY Open Studio Tour on Saturday and Sunday, May 1 and 2, as will Strauss’ partner,  Michael Gellatly, and artists including Lori Adams, Donna Castelluccio, Bob Madden, Karen Madden, Bill Prickett and Brian Wohrman. 

Productive Plants

To say that Michelle Alfandari was ultra urban would be an understatement. Living in New York City with her artist husband, Tom Goldenberg, she traveled the world creating new licensed branded businesses for companies as diverse (but always sophisticated) as The New York Times, the Tour de France and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Shows Based on Notable Books

Larry McMurtry: Movies adapted from his books won 13 Oscars. You could try “Terms of Endearment” or “The Last Picture Show,” but his best book is the great Western novel “Lonesome Dove.” It was made into a TV miniseries in 1989 that is faithful to the book and was certainly the most unromantic western ever made.

Plant Starts and Baby Animals: Spring Is Here

What is it about lambs that makes all humans coo and want to cuddle them? Elvia Gignoux of Weatogue Farm in Salisbury, Conn., said, “I think they represent hope and a new start. Something we all need this year.” 

If you’re a woman of a certain age, you either owned Liv Tyler’s outfit in “Empire Records” or wished you owned it. See the film and hear from the costume designer in a May 1 Boondocks Film Society screening.

I can’t tell from the IMDb how old costume designer Susan Lyall is but I will say that she’s more or less captured my life on film, so she must be about my age.
