no_space is bidding a fond farewell to our bricks and mortar
(clapboard and tin, is more like it) and moving to a pixel
based existence at www.no-space.com. We do this with sadness,
but also with the hope that this change will allow us to
concentrate on the things that are most important to us right
Despite the lack of a
regular gallery space, We look forward to the possiblilty
of future collaborations at undetermined locations and our
continuing exploration of the seemingly
hudson valley art community.
We wish you and yours
all the best for the new year!

THINK BABY THINK! A Maverick Art Show to Get Out the Vote
“A lie a day keeps the issues away” is the
kind of political slogan that rings especially true during
an election season. Slogans inject cynical times with a
welcome dose of humor, insight and passion. But it’s
a mess out there on the 2008 campaign trail. There has been
such an abundance of material to work with since the conventions;
you just can’t keep up! To celebrate this historic
season of hope, No_space gallery presents, THINK BABY THINK!
A group show of artist-made placards, posters, bumper stickers,
buttons, and other campaign paraphernalia.
THINK BABY THINK! will open on Friday,
October 3rd at 6pm with a public reception that has the
potential to run rampant in the streets once the moderately-priced
speech (thanks to a government
bailout) in this show is put into action. Artwork will be
hung as it arrives, making attendance mandatory for all
participants. Voter registration information and materials
will be made available.
THINK BABY THINK! will run through October 12th. Proceeds
from this show will go to The Election Protection coalition,
a nonpartisan coalition made up of more than 100 local,
state and national partners formed to ensure that all voters
have an equal opportunity to participate in the political
process. More information at http://www.866ourvote.org/
no_space began its existence four
years ago with a show entitled Just Vote: images of protest
fron the 2004 RNC. Since that date no_space has been providing
local artists with the services they need to promote themselves,
including gallery space for exhibitions, photographic
documentation and portraiture, web design, graphic design,
cheap wine & gallery

Weekend : The Land Hoes LAND! Closing Party
Saturday June 28th 3-5pm
at Kerhonson General, 323 Main Street, Kerhonkson, NY
The Land Hoes are
a short lived venture of four musicians. They will be performing
the song portions from the soundtrack “Westward Ho!”,
created by Wayne Montecalvo for the show Land! (currated
by Sean Sullivan). This music has never been attempted in
a live venue, and will be a one time only event in a temporary
gallery setting in the old liquor store on Main Street in
Kerhonkson. The music has to be seen to be heard.
Wayne Montecalvo and John Wirtz are both founding members
of the Fighting McKenzies (no relation to Kelleigh). They
started the band 22 years ago just out of junior high school,
and had a fairly good run for the last 10 years as the main
performing group at the Garlic Festival, until everyone
got mad and quit. John and Wayne both went on their individual
paths making their own music separately, joining up one
place or another to wreak mayhem at open mics, signer-songwriter
gigs, inner circles, and the like. Too bad the music is
considered too “out there” for most places,
but we won’t mention names.
Kelleigh Mckenzie is an upcoming songwriter and performer
that has been recently making an impression at local venues
and has just released a really great album that you all
should buy. You can go see her at the Bearsville Theater
in July. Don’t’ miss it!
Mark Brown is a (yet another) really great songwriter and
really great carpenter. His group Uncle Buckle has been
making their way with frequent airplay on local radio stations
and national radio frequency as well. He will also be playing
solo at the Bearsville Theater on the same night as Kelleigh!
So you can go see them both in July.
The Land Hoes appearance this Saturday is guaranteed to
be at least entertaining, if not memorable. Please come

FINALLY! A new
Where water meets water: The swimming hole photographs
We are pleased to
be kicking off our
2008 season with a show of photographs and a slide talk
from local photographer James Fossett. As a native of coastal
Maine, Fossett’s work frequently explores aquatic
environments and the people who thrive on them. “I
am interested in the concept and presence of community.
Swimming holes embody community at its most basic level.
At these selected spots we toss aside our social skins,
strip down to a sociably acceptable level and dive in to
the communal waters”. Read more about Jim & this project here.

Happy Holidays from no_space
Nov 30 , 2007
It's beginning to look allot like....
The weather is finally cooling off and it finally feels like
December! And December can mean only one thing for Rosendale:
FROZENDALE! This December 8th there will be holiday spirit
galore in our little town- music & hayrides, pictures with
Santa & crafts from local artists. This year we will be
making ornaments in the gallery... If the spirit strikes
there may even be a little facepainting- who knows!
All this month we have a special show
hanging in the gallery: PLACE/Identity features work from
Kingston High School students who had the
opportunity to work in the studios at WSW with some of our
favorite local artists- Judith Hoyt, Lara Giordano, Cindy
Sumerano, Dani Leventhal and Chris Petrone, to name a few.
The students had the chance to experiment in the papermaking,
printmaking and silkscreen studios and the work they produced
shows an understanding of the creative process and a willingness
to experiment that belies the age of its creators. We feel
very fortunate to be able to have this show in the space,
and even more so- to be living in a place where our public
schools provide such a substantial art curriculum for their
I hope you will be able to join us Saturday the 1st, 4-6pm
for a reception for this next generation
of local artists!

Make a big "X" in your calendars
on Thursday November 15th, 7pm when no_space is very pleased
to be hosting an evening with Unmarketable:
Brandalism, Copyfighting, Mocketing, and the Erosion of
Elizabeth Moore. Fresh from the post-punk planet underground
comes Ms. Moore and her exploration of corporate marketing
and its relationship to the cultural underground.
Are you a target? Think not? Well think again. Advertising
strategies have appropriated cutting edge tactics and now
operate seamlessly within the counter culture movements
that spurn them.
the New Press website: "For years the do-it-yourself (DIY)/punk
underground has worked against the logic of mass production
and creative uniformity, disseminating radical ideas and
directly making and trading goods and services. But what
happens when the underground becomes just another market?
What happens when the very tools that the artists and activists
have used to build word of mouth are coopted by corporate
America? What happens to cultural resistance when it becomes
just another marketing platform?
A longtime member of the underground,
Anne Elizabeth Moore traipses through this upset landscape,
interviewing the perpetrators, the victims, and the not-so-innocent
bystanders of phenomena both hilarious and troubling in
order to examine the underground's changing relationship
to the commercialized world and its impact on activism and
....and they rode off into the sunset
happily ever after.
What a great night! Thank you to you
all who came to our first ever night of readings at no_space,
and thank you especially to Saidee, Jacinta (the most fashionable
woman in Rosendale) & Carrie who braved the huge crowd and
shared their work with all of us. I am in awe of their fearlessness,
not only in their writing, but in their being able to speak
complete sentances in front of all those people.
forward to doing more readings in the future, it was agreed
all around that it was a great way to spend an evening
and I promise next time I will get more chairs! Thanks again
to all who came.

Will it ever end?
I hate to say it, but I am looking forward
to summer being OVER. This is the first time in my life that
I have ever felt this way, and I hope it is the last... I
just want everything to have a schedule again- I can't take
any more FUN.
Also- I am really looking forward to our
next show which opens September 8th-New paintings from Lea
Bozman. We will be having a reception from 5-8pm on the night
of the 8th and the show will run until the first weekend
On Saturday September 29th we will
host an evening of readings from several new local voices
in creative writing, Saidee Brown from Kingston, Jacinta
Bunnell from Rosendale, and Carrie Schapker from Accord.
Each will read for about 20 minutes from selections of their
work. Subjects will include fluoride treatments, Whitesnake
songs, pope-on-a-rope soap and Fountains of Rome flashbacks.
The writers’ works
share a blend of humor and sharp observations about a range
of ordinary, yet intense moments of life.
The readings will start around 8pm, after
Rosendale's Fifth Saturday Art Walk, And we will be well
into fall by then, so maybe I will have recovered from this
terrible overload of summer fun.
See you then!
July 2nd, 2007
No Summer Plans...
The date for the Emerging Writers reading
has been changed to September 29th, seems like people will
have an easier time sitting quietly in the fall than they
would on a lovely summer evening when they really should
be out chasing fireflies and drinking shandies instead. Mark
it down in your calendars!
Dont be sad though, because The
Rosendale Street Festival is fast upon us! no_space has all kinds of
plans for the festival and it is anyones guess as to how
many of them we will actually get done in time. Face painting?
whack-a-mole? dunking booth? Come on down to Rosendale July
21st & 22nd to see what we have come up with!
There will be art for sale, a poloroid booth, crafties for
the kids to do and plenty of ice cold water and a great show
from Judith Hoyt to see in the gallery. My sister swears
she is going to make scones, if she does I would plan on
getting here EARLY before they all disappear.
Judith Hoyt: The Irish Work June 2 - August 4, 2007
We are pleased as pie that Judy
Hoyt is back from a six week long residency at the Ballinglen
Arts Foundation in Ballycastle, County Mayo, Ireland and
will be hanging her new work here at no_space. Judy returns
with a body of work inspired by the sharp contrast between
nature, weather and light that shapes the Irish countryside.
Combining encaustic, drawing, and collage with objects found
during her stay, Judy's new work creates a subtle window
onto a new landscape.
Please join us Saturday, June 2nd from
5-8pm for an artists reception.

Gallery Talk & Closing party for Slurry
We have re-scheduled
the closing party & gallery talk with Dani Leventhal for
Friday April 27th, 6-9pm. The
gallery talk will begin at 7pm. Please come, bring your questions
and your friends! This will be the last chance to see this
fantastic installation before it is dismantled.
April 1st, 2007
We had a terrific crowd for Dani Leventhal's opening last
night- Many people expressed the desire to come view the
show when the gallery was a little quieter. If you would
like to schedule a gallery visit please feel free to call
us at 658-9709, we are always happy to open up.
I have posted pictures of the piece here on Dani's Artist page and I will continue to add more as the installation evolves.
Dani will continue to work on both
the installation and the video through April 27th.

Slurry: An installation by Dani Leventhal
Leventhal has been quietly laboring
away in the gallery for a few weeks now. She has been, along
with the help of many friends & associates, working
and steel creating an installation that has at once taken
over and highlighted the space. Her chest high wooden canvas
creates a view of the space that I have not seen before.
It feels like it is waiting quietly on the brink for
something momentous to happen. Now that the carpentry is
done she will start work on large scale drawings that will
cover the surface of the platforms. This drawing process
will continue throughout the run of the show, which opens
on March 31st and runs through April 28th.
Please join us for an opening reception
Saturday March 31st, 5-8pm.

This years festival
theme is universal love. Here at no_space we plan to celebrate
this shameless commercial holiday by making a big mess at
the space and taking as many goofy portraits as we can. Join
us for Valentine making and picture taking and check back
here as we post the portraits on the web.
Come on down to Rosendale! Festival highlights include Mark
Brown, 4pm at the Red Brick Tavern, Kelleigh McKenzie, 3pm

Tavern. There will be stuff going on all over town!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Thank you to all the artists who
participated in this years holiday show. The range of work
was fantastic & we had
a lot of people in the gallery this season. Each year the
show gets bigger and better- I have no idea what we are going
to do for space next year!
The gallery will be quiet for a
month or two & we are
looking forward to an installation by Dani
rawness of Dani's work should provide some well needed grounding
after the exhuberance of the holiday show. Looking down the
pike towards the rest of the year we are planning shows with
Judy Hoyt & Lea Bozman, as well as a couple of other
specials here & there. 2007 is looking good.
Ty & I have alot to be thankful for-Most of all we are
happy we are still here, happy to see the space growing & attracting
a diverse group of people who are into what we are doing.
THANK YOU! and have a very happy & safe

THIRD ANNUAL HOLIDAY SALE
Thanksgiving through Christmas
open Saturday & Sunday 12-7pm
about the Holiday show in this weeks Almanac here
We will be hosting our third annual holiday sale featuring
artwork & crafts from over 30 local artists.
“This is a great time of year to give the community
a chance to see artwork that is being created right here where
they live. We try and keep the scope of the show as broad
as possible, with over 25 artists this year you can get a
hearty sampling of what is being made in the area. There are
pieces that are functional, fashionable, and practical, as
well as fine art. Its a neat alternative to the same old christmas
gifts and a chance to learn more about the extensive local
art scene at the same time” says no_space co-founder
Sarah Burt. “The spirit of Rosendale & the surrounding
area lies in its artists and their ability to transform their
surroundings. It is a great place to live & work, and
I think this shows in the work that is being produced here”
This year no_space has paintings from Neal Hollinger,
Leslie Miller, Todd Samara, Wayne
Sean Sullivan, Staats Fasoldt & Betty A.R. Greenwald;
prints from Laura Moriarty & Ruth Wetzel,
Ceramics from Meadow, May Beth Wehrung & Katie
Scott-Childress, Handmade instuments by Peter
Head, Drawings & Ornaments by Sean Nixon
& Saidee Brown, Creatures & paintings from
Cindy Hoose, Photography by Jim Fossett
& Suzanne Stokes, Woodwork from Kier
Kinsella, Jewellry by Judith
Estes & Jennifer Bennet. Music from Mark
Head, Dean Jones & more. Peter Headwill be here playing his handmade
instruments for our artists reception on Saturday December
16th 4-7pm and we will be having an kids ornament making party
for the Frozendale Holiday Festival, a town-wide winter festival,
from 12-5pm on December 9th.

Bird Project was conceived as a way to raise money for the
complementary medicines and other alternative treatments recommended
to me by my naturaopathic doctor James Belanger and at the
same time to support two excellent organizations that directly
assist people with cancer- Breast Cancer Options and the Oncology
Support Program at Benedictine Hospital, both in Kingston,
have chosen the image of a bird because I love birds and like
that they are a universal symbol of love & spiritual rebirth.
Each bird will be different from one another and will be painted
only by myself. For every sale, $5 will go to Breast Cancer
Options and the Benedictine Oncology Support Program."
Bird Project paintings can be viewed at the no_space gallery
through the month of December as part of our Third Annual
