August Art Festival and Rosendale Rail Trail

The Women's Studio Workshop has started a lovely art festival here in Rosendale. They had workshops, performances, videos and installations along to rail trail.

 Here are the installations along to rail trail. Having what I like to think is an outdoor gallery is the best! I always enjoy waking the trail and this brings a bigger smile to my face to have art all around me!

This perforce piece was a blast! It was like the forest had its own mascots and they wanted you to join in. Semblance by Margeaux Walter

Here I am chilling with my friend the grass.

My friend the tree. On a side note I had no idea my friend was in this costume until he said "thank you Allison". Creeped me out for a second until I realized it was him. Then I had a good laugh!

Jumping with the leaves.

This super cool trestle. My friend told me to "hug the trestle" and I was so confused until I saw this. 

For the closing party they had the Cave Dogs do a shadow performance which was beautifully done and a joy to watch. Here is a link to the video take a look!

I missed some things here and there but enjoyed what I did see. Here are links to the participating arts I missed.

I am sad to have missed this one because they are both my teachers from college and I would have love to see what they are making.

 I heard that the rail trail installation will stay up for a few more weeks if you want to see. Here is a link to the festival page.

As a side note I did not take all of these pictures and I'm not sure who to credit. If you know please tell me. Thank you!!!
