Honeymoon Heart Revival at Kingston Festival of the Arts

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

On Saturday, August 24th 2013,  Honeymoon Heart Revival presents a two-woman play  “Dear Johnny” at San Severia Tent as part of the Kingston Festival of the Arts. “Dear Johnny” is a love story and mythological warning tale set in contemporary times. Starring Jillian McManemin and Anna Neidermeyer, “Dear Johnny” paints a dark and cinematic picture of the self-indulgent landscape of aristocracy in New York City. The viewer is witness to a spectacular journey of romance gone truly awry as the naïve protagonist meets a horrible fate at the hands of her lover.

The Honeymoon Heart Revival is a collaborative team, based in NYC, between Anna Neidermeyer and Jillian McManemin. Through “The Honeymoon Heart Revival” Neidermeyer and McManemin seek to use their strengths to create textually rich plays, films, performances, and installations. Together they have participated in shows at Glasslands, CAA, Pratt Institute,  Brooklyn Fireproof, Strange Loop Gallery; Bureau of General Services-Queer Division and Bushwick Open Studios. Recently, both members participated in the making of “The Cruel Tale of The Medicine Man”, a feature film directed by Maria Beatty, written and produced by James Habacker.  “Dear Johnny” is their most recent theater piece that premiered at Dixon Place, NYC June 2013 and will be performed in the Hudson Valley for the first time at the Kingston Festival of the Arts.

The Classical Romanticism of Eugene Gregan: Paintings from 40 Years in the Catskill Mountains curated by Jen Dragon and Brian Powers

October 9th, 3:00-6:00pm

Born in 1937 in New Haven, Ct, Mr. Gregan has painted, planted, and thrived on the southern slope of Ulster County’s Catskill Mountains since 1970. Working from his mountaintop home, studio, and gardens outside Napanoch with his wife Beverly, his paintings have long reflected the magic and quietude of their surroundings.

A graduate of, and later an instructor at the Rhode Island School of Design, Gregan has also taught at Yale and Brown Universities, Parsons School of Design, Trinity College, and the Naropa Institute. His graphic and commercial design background includes work with I.M Pei, Herbert Matter, Norman Ives, and Joseph Albers, and many of his illustrations, corporate logos, and album covers are widely familiar.

Noted private collectors of Mr. Gregan’s work include John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Miles Davis, Robert Mitchum, John Steinbeck, Julie Christie, Bill Cosby, John Simon, Calvin Klein, Ram Dass, Alan Gerry, Eric Booth, Marty Raynes, Jeff Witty, Robert Osgood, Paul Guenther, Gerry Celente, and Jason Spears of the Scissor Sisters.
