  • Storm King Art Center will reopen on July 15.

July is here, and under Phase 3 of the New York State on PAUSE act things continue to cautiously and slowly reopen. Here are a few examples right here in the Hudson Valley.


Storm King Art Center Set to Reopen

The renowned Storm King Art Center sculpture center in Mountainville recently announced that it will be opening its 2020 season on July 15 and running Wednesdays through Mondays from 10am to 5:30pm. For the season, the 500-acre outdoor grounds will be open for limited-capacity visits (the museum store, cafe, and tram and bike rentals will remain closed for the time being). To coincide with the center’s reopening, special exhibitions by Kiki Smith and Martha Tuttle will be unveiled, and other program highlights will include special loan presentations of Mark di Suvero’s E=MC2 and Louise Bourgeois’s Eyes.


Grand Cru Heats Up with Bands and Barbecue

Grand Cru Beer & Cheese Market in Rhinebeck has returned to the local live music landscape and this weekend will be presenting North Carolina’s the Knotty G’s (July 2 from 7 to 10pm) and Kingston’s Gold Hope Duo (July 3 from 5 to 8pm) as the outdoor accompaniment for the reappearance of food truck the Grille Wagon. Burgers, seafood, and barbeque items will be served up straight from the grille and 16 varieties of craft beer are on tap. There’ll be a bonfire after sunset and partiers are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs to set up with the required six feet between their neighbors, in case the socially distanced outdoor tables are full.

Kingston’s Green Kill gallery is a peer-to-peer artist space for visual artists, songwriters and performers, literary artists, and filmmakers. The facility’s July exhibition kicks off this Saturday from 5 to 7pm with an opening party (with staggered, limited-capacity admission) for an exhibition of new works by Fred Duignan, Don Perlis, and Karen Sasha. “Green Kill is equipped with a heat pump, so the air is constantly refreshed and the space is, as always, sanitized,” says gallery curator David Schell. The exhibit runs through July 25.

Daryl’s House, the Pawling restaurant and live music venue owned by singer Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates, is now open for outdoor and indoor (limited seating) dining and, soon, performances.
