Imagine a pair of villages set in the midst of a beautiful green valley. Living in the houses are magicians who, for just one day of the year, welcome everybody to come into the private, secret places where they work their spells. Now imagine that you could get there by boarding a train and traveling just fifty miles north of New York City.
What you’ve just imagined is real and it’s called the Cold Spring Arts Open Studios. It’s this Saturday (info: http://www.coldspringarts.com/). One of the artists happens to be my very talented mother, Galelyn Williams, who can be seen early on in the video below. She works all kinds of magic, but her special talent is revealing the souls of lost objects and old, old photographs. This weekend, her door is be open and the magic is waiting.
