"Art of the Garden" at Barrett Art Center
July 13-August 14, Barrett Art Center, Poughkeepsie
Featuring work submitted by local artists year, this exhibit at Barrett Art Center is displaying two- and three-dimensional artwork in a garden theme. April Hubbard and Yve Cook are two of the artists featured, displaying two very different kinds of artwork. Hubbard's piece is a gorgeous sepia photograph of a flower, while Cook's painting looks more like a flower's tie-dyed negative. Created in a variety of styles and mediums, this exhibit is attempting to highlight the possibility of gardening in an urban setting.

This Heirloom Life with the Fabulous Beekman Boys
August 17, Church of St. John in the Wilderness, Copake Falls
The small town of Copake Falls is set to be the scene of a talk by Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, aka The Fabulous Beekman Boys of reality TV show fame. The couple's show, which is carried on the Cooking Channel, documents their life in rural Sharon Springs, an hour west of Albany, where they raise animals and cook food, having moved there from New York City. In the talk, Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge will discuss heirloom gardening, rural life, and good food.

Vanderbilt Garden Tour
August 18, Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Park, Hyde Park
Once the personal refuge of railroad tycoon Frederick W. Vanderbilt and his family, the gardens of his estate have now long-since been open to the public. On August 18, volunteer interpreters will lead a guided tour of the garden, focusing on its original intent and the restoration efforts of the Vanderbilt Garden Association. The tour will specifically showcase the renovation of the garden's "Cherry Walk" and the replanting of the rose garden terraces.

Woodstock-New Paltz Art and Crafts Fair
August 31-September 2, Ulster County Fairgrounds, New Paltz
This fair provides an opportunity to interact with and purchase wares from local artisans and craftspeople. Also held during Memorial Day weekend, the 32-year-old event has become a regional staple. The fair, which had over 230 juried vendors at its last running, features crafts and artwork of all stripes along with food and live music.

Rondout Waterfront Walking Tour
August 31, departing from Heritage Area Visitors Center, Kingston
Beginning as a Dutch fort in the 1600s, incorporated as a town in 1849, and merging with the town of Kingston to its north in 1872, the Rondout district has had a long and complex history. The Friends of Historic Kingston walking tour attempts to familiarize you with the characters of the past who built the cast-iron buildings, towering churches, and waterfront docks that make up the district as it stands today.

Beacon Flea Market
Sundays through October 27, Beacon
Despite being in only its third year, the Beacon Flea Market has already become an important venue for locals to bargain over goods. Begun as a collaboration between two Beacon residents who wanted to rid their homes of clutter, the flea market still has a distinctly community-based feel. Beacon vendors hawk their wares at a discount, and while artwork and collectables are also sold, many of the products are similar to what might be found at a yard sale. In the past week, everything from original comic book art to goods benefiting Safe Haven animal shelter were to be found at the market.
