Winter focus of CGP exhibit

The Cooperstown Graduate Program is presenting an exhibition, “All Cooped Up: Winter in Central New York” in the lobby of the program building at 5838 State Route 80 in Cooperstown. The show features work by second-year students Samantha Clink, Patrick Dickerson, Meghan Evans, Lindsey Marolt, Jillian Reese and Caitlin Wolf.

Attendees will be able experience winter past to present with historic photographs and objects from the New York State Historical Association collections, along with some favorite memorabilia donated by local friends and neighbors. The exhibition connects these stories to the larger trend of climate change, where rising average temperatures make more unpredictable weather and melt the ice on Otsego Lake.

Middleburgh library to host performance

Josh White Jr., a folk/blues, pop, jazz, vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, actor, adult and children’s concert performer and recording artist, teacher and social activist, will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 19, at the Middleburgh library.

White became a “hit” overnight at the age of 4 by performing with his father Josh White at New York’s Café Society night club, America’s first integrated nightclub. For the next five years he performed with his father from New York to Boston to Philadelphia. In 1949, White landed his first role on Broadway, playing his father’s son in “How Long Til Summer?” with Dorothy Gish and Don Hanmer. While continuing a solo acting career, he went on to perform and record with his father for the next 17 years on radio, television, Broadway, concert halls and nightclubs around the world.

He attended New York’s Professional Children’s School, along with Elliott Gould, Sandra Dee, Brandan de Wilde, Leslie Uggams, Christopher Walken and Marvin Hamlisch, who co-wrote White’s first solo recording for Decca in 1956, “See Saw.”
