The 63rd Stockade Villagers’ Outdoor Art Show was prudently postponed until today (Sunday, September 7), from Noon to 4 P.M., due to the universal consensus among meteorologists that thunder-storms and rain were highly probable on Saturday. We did not get the scary weather yesterday, but the forecast that Sunday would be sunny, comfortable and rain-free appears to be spot on.
Nonetheless, if you can’t get to Lawrence Circle today, or simply cannot wait until noon to experience this year’s Outdoor Art Show, you will find hundreds of Art Show images in our past coverage of the event:
As we do every year, suns along the Mohawk will be presenting scores of photos from today’s Stockade Outdoor Art Show, so please come back this evening to see the winning art and many other images of the Show from our perspective.
p.s. A little advocacy on behalf of the Stockade:
The editor-proprietor of suns along the Mohawk wants, as does a very large percentage of residents of the Stockade and Schenectady County, to protect the Stockade neighborhood from the problems that are likely to flow if a casino is built a few blocks away at the old ALCO site. You can still attend the “public comment event” on September 22 or write to the Gaming Facility Location Board to voice your opinion. Click here for details.
