Bedford Shoutouts May-June 2018

This, That, and Other Things




Towering Talent
Caramoor will open its 73rd summer season on June 16. Seven weeks of programming for all ages includes a Season of Exceptional Women! In addition to high-wattage talents like Audra McDonald and Susan Graham, Westchester’s bucolic cultural mecca will host towering jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves and one of NPR’s “10 Greatest Living Songwriters for 2017,” Aimee Mann. Three young women—Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan—will play together at the Roots Festival as “I’m with Her” (above). Join me in the music room, the Venetian Theater, or the Spanish Courtyard; this is gonna be good! caramoor.org


Sparkle & Shine
Sisters Kristin McGuinness and Alyssa Genovese recently opened Sparklicious, a party and crafting space inside Mt. Kisco’s Grand Prix New York.Kids head to this glittering space for open-studio hours and weekly workshops focusing on activities ranging from making jewelry and lip balm to dance, yoga, and art. Sparklicious also hosts parties onsite and offsite where guests can indulge in manicures, hair glam (feather or jewels in your hair), sparkle tattoos, and face painting or hone their skills in bracelet making, pottery painting, board painting, and canvas painting. Ladies nights, too! sparklicious.com 


Healing Art  
At Two Dogs + A Caracal Studio in Katonah, artist Lise Sharfin hand carves fine art sculpture and has recently introduced a line of sacred totems—or spiritual touchstones—which are hand-carved, filed, sanded, rubbed with boiled linseed oil, and blessed by a Reiki master, which Sharfin says imbues them with the most fundamental healing energy: love. Designed to fit in the palm of your hand, the talismans are available at Red Fox Gallery in Bedford Village.


For Girls Only
Down a country lane and up a flight of stairs is the Flirty Girl Boudoir, a shop in Waccabuc where women go to unlock and explore their sexy selves. Owner Brooke Christian is determined to change the way women think, talk, and have sex, and to that end, she opened Boudoir where women come alone or with friends to talk, laugh, inquire, and shop her curated selection of toys. Prices range from $15-200. Christian says, ”It’s the ultimate feminine escape where your pleasure is the most important thing on the menu.” flirtygirlguide.com


Art Space   
Gallarus Arts Space is a contemporary art gallery that recently opened on Katonah Ave. Owned by Gregory Muenzen, the gallery exhibits museum-quality sculptures and Old Masters drawings of the Italian Renaissance together with curated exhibitions of area and national contemporary artists. A community space for art and ideas, the gallery hosts ongoing lectures on wide-ranging topics plus poetry readings and artist talks. gallarusarts.com


On the Farm
Head to John Jay Homestead on Saturday, June 16, for an outdoor, farm-to-table dinner and fundraiser to celebrate the State Historic Site’s agrarian history. Enjoy an idyllic evening featuring locally grown food prepared by Purdy’s Farmer & the Fish and live bluegrass music by City Grass. The evening kicks off at 6:30 pm. Reservations are required. johnjayhomestead.org
