The Art Garage: The Summer Taj, Exhibit & Sale

A Weekend Global Show Locally in Cooperstown..."Taj Garage", Exhibit & Sale

In an unexpected twist, the Art Garage annual holiday show, affectionately called, 'The Taj Garage,' is happening in August this year, August 24-26. A Friday, August 24 reception, 5-7PM, launch the event.  Poet, world traveler/teacher, and longtime Cooperstown Central School Visiting Artist, Steve Clorfeine, will be exhibiting crafts from artisans in Nepal and India in a one-weekend-only show, "From Nepal & India to the Summer 'Taj Garage'," at 689 Beaver Meadow Road near Cooperstown.  After the reception, hours will be Saturday, 10-5PM, and Sunday 11-3 PM. 

Area visitors and residents will find a rich array of handcrafted items, many reflecting centuries-old traditions – from crisp summer household fabrics for dinner settings and the bedroom, to light apparel in hand-blocked cotton and lavish silks, to folk art paintings and sculpture, colorful totes, dolls, and silver and gemstone jewelry.

"All is selected on site from people I've worked with for years," noted Clorfeine, whose offerings for the weekend show "will make great wedding presents, and please early holiday shoppers." His exhibit will include: brocade bags and jewelry from Kathmandu; light summer stoles and scarves from Kashmir; renown Neerja blue
pottery from cottage industries in Rajasthan; and cotton tablecloths, chiffon and silk apparel and "the incredible colors of weavers' silk scarves" from the famously covered bazaar in Varanasi, India".

Clorfeine, based in the Hudson Valley, began collecting following a 6-month stay in Southeast Asia in the mid-1990s. He returns regularly with his wife Jenny Bates as part of their Buddhist journey of faith. They regularly visit artists and vendors, who have become good friends, in Boudha and Patan, Kathmandu, and in India.
In 2009 they established Dragon Fly, a 'by appointment " business in the Hudson Valley, to showcase the beautiful crafts from this part of the world. "Because this is not a retail business, our markup is just above wholesale and generally lower than retail prices," Clorfeine explained.

Clorfeine's connection to Cooperstown goes back to the 1980s. As a New York Foundation for the Arts Visiting Artist Fellow, he taught in Cooperstown under the auspices of the non-profit art space Gallery 53, which organized a community-wide cultural collaboration, supported in part by UCCCA's Arts in Education program.
Clorfeine developed interactive programs for a broad range of entities: from high school to preschool at the Art Farm and Head Start. He established friendships with drama teacher Mary Jo Merk and the legendary high school English teacher Nick Alicino, enrichment program coordinator Mary Marx and arts advocate Sydney
Waller. Ever since Clorfeine regularly returns to Cooperstown to offer his much-anticipated creative writing high school workshop, in recent years deftly hosted by Rebecca Burk-Sciallo. He also annually teaches in Switzerland, Germany and India.
