Please join us for the  Hillsdale Arts Festival:  

Saturday,  September 21, 2013

10am - 4 pm 
Sunday, September 22, 2013
11 am - 4 pm

Hillsdale, NY is quickly developing its rightful reputation as a burgeoning arts community. With recent national exposure in 'Martha Stewart Living' magazine and the amazing draw of both artists and art-lovers to the Hillsdale area and surrounds, the time has come to gather together and celebrate the arts in this beautiful upstate community. 

The CCCA, along with the Hillsdale Hamlet committee, invite you to join us for this two-day arts festival taking place this September, during the height of fall foliage season. The festival kicks off CCCA's 19th Annual ArtsWalk, a (now) three-week celebration of the arts in Columbia County. We invite you to stroll through the village and Hamlet Park and see the work of over 30 talented artists in a variety of mediums: fine art, photography, sculpture, jewelry, fine crafts and more! There will be  musicians and performers on both days with food and fun for everyone! 

'The Most Lovely Town in the Hudson Valley'

Hillsdale, long famous for its bucolic vistas and charming hamlet, provides the ultimate Columbia County experience. Also known as the 'Gateway to the Berkshires', this unique town is perfectly situated at the crossroads of Routes 22 and 23. The Hamlet of Hillsdale was recently designated a National Historic District, while farmers in the surrounding hills continue a centuries-old tradition of producing delicious organic foods. 

Long-established businesses are being joined by an exciting entrepreneurial spirit, making Hillsdale one of the most attractive destinations in the Hudson Valley!

Join us in the Hamlet of Hillsdale on Saturday, September 21st, 10am-4pm and Sunday, September 22nd, 11am-4pm as we celebrate the rich artistic talent located in Hillsdale and surrounds! It will be a feast for the eyes and a wonder to the senses!

When and Where  
Every Saturday starting June 1 till October 12.
9am to 1pm.

Located at Roe Jan Park, 9140 Route 22, just a minute south of the light on Route 23.

The photography of B. Docktor will be featured at the Roe Jan Library September 4-October 6, 2013 in a show titled Essential Moments. The opening reception is Friday September 6 from 5:30-7:30. The exhibit is a celebration of the library's 100th birthday, our gorgeous area and our wonderful community. It will include Docktor's Community Portrait of the People of Roe Jan Library. 
Ancram resident B. Docktor photographs everything from families to animals, landscapes and nature, to weddings, performances and events. To help the Roe Jan Library celebrate its 100th anniversary, Docktor donated many hours to making a community portrait of the people who make up the library community. She photographed staff, reading groups, performances, workshops, donors, artists, writers, individuals using the library, and many groups who volunteer in various ways to serve the library.  She says, “I wanted to create a portrait of this very giving, diverse, and extremely talented community who use and serve the library.” 
“For the library exhibit, I am putting up photographs that feature the beauty of our area, as well as selections from the RJCL Community Portrait. I love where I live, and I so enjoy making images that show off our landscape, nature and animals. We’ll also have a slideshow of the RJCL Community Portrait playing during the opening reception which I hope will foster conversation and connection between people who may recognize each other, but don’t really know each other,” said Docktor.
The Roeliff Jansen Community Library, which is chartered to serve Ancram, Copake and Hillsdale, is located at 9091 Rt. 22, approximately one mile south of the light at the intersection of Routes 22 and 23 in Hillsdale. For information on hours and events, call 518-325-4101, or visit the library’s website at www.roejanlibrary.org.
