Nyack Weekender: Shop, Sing & Skate

‘Twas three days before Christmas and all weekend long,
Shops were all open; singers celebrated in song.
With blues and rock. And a laugh or two.
Accompanied by family art and skating you could do.

Friday

  • Amazing gold and platinum recording artist Joe Delia is returning after tours in France and Memphis, with very talented musician/singers Gregg D. Hollister, Bosco Michne, and James Benard, to bring some blues and rock to The Turning Point. 8:30p, 468 Piermont Ave, Piermont

Saturday

  • There’s still time to find a gift for the art lover at the Surrender to Small: Juried Small Works Art Show. Ninety artists working in various mediums from collage to fiber to photography to watercolor were challenged to create works no larger than 12?? in any direction. Their smallness demands the viewer’s close inspection and attention and gives art enthusiasts the ability to acquire original, affordable, small works of art. Sat & Sun, 11a-2p, Bell-ans Center for Creative Art, 103 S Greenbush Rd, Orangeburg. The exhibit runs through January 5, 2018.
  • Fill a gap in your child’s arts education and get a deeper insight into the current exhibitions at the Hop Into Art Weekend Family Workshops at the Edward Hopper House. For December, cut out holiday cards inspired by the hand-made holiday cards Edward Hopper shared with friends and family. This is not a drop-off event, child must be accompanied by a guardian. Every Sat & Sun, 1-3p, 82 N Broadway, Nyack.
  • Visit the Historical Society of the Nyacks’ exhibit Marydell – Over Ninety Years – Serving – Mentoring – Caring!, a nostalgic glimpse of timeless moments in the lives of the Sisters of Our Lady of Christian Doctrine from 1924 to now. 1-4p, Depew House, 50 Piermont Ave, Nyack. Exhibit is open every Sat from 1-4p through February 24, 2018.
