The Agricultural Stewardship Association’s Landscapes for Landsake is an annual art exhibition that celebrates both the agricultural heritage and stunning landscapes of the Upper Hudson Valley. Now in its 19th year, the show is the region’s largest art buying event of the season.

The 3-day event is typically held every Columbus Day weekend in the magnificent 19th-century post and beam barn at Maple Ridge, but this year’s event will be held online. So, their inaugural Virtual Event to Benefit Farmland Conservation will run through October 9~30th with works displayed on www.LandscapesforLandsake.com.

Many of the featured artists are internationally recognized painters. There is also a strong representation of works in other media, including sculpture, ceramics, photography, and furniture. To tell us more – we welcome Katie Jilek - ASA's Communications Manager and the main organizer of our Landscapes for Landsake art event and Leah McCloskey - the Curator of the show.

The Agricultural Stewardship Association will present its 18th Annual Landscapes for Landsake Art Sale & Exhibition October 12–14. 

The event is a fundraiser to support local farmland conservation, and the art show features artists whose work is inspired by the region's working landscapes. It takes place in the historic barn at Maple Ridge in the hamlet of Coila, just west of the Village of Cambridge.

This year's Landscapes for Landsake features the work of Virginia McNeice (1936-2019).

Teri Ptacek is Executive Director of the Agricultural Stewardship Association and she joins us for the preview this morning along with Leah McClosky, the curator of Landscapes for Landsake.

Hoosick Blooms 2019 Tour takes place on Saturday, July 20th from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. Six private and very diverse gardens and farms will welcome visitors on the Hoosick Blooms 2019 tour. Following a watercolor map created especially with an eye to beautiful views, participants on this self-driving tour will see unique gardens tucked into the rolling hills of Hoosick and neighboring communities.

Three properties on the tour, Jermain Hill Farm, Berle Farm and the Historic Barns of Nipmoose, are conserved as Forever Farmland by the Agricultural Stewardship Association and the Fraser/McDonald House has received designation as an official Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. The Fraser site is also the birthplace of Simon Fraser who became a renowned Canadian explorer.

Hoosick Blooms 2019 benefits CiviCure’s fund for the renovation of the historic Wood Block Building and Opera House. We welcome CiviCure board member Melodee James; Manager of Grants and Programs for CiviCure Jayne Stokes; and Executive Director, Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) Teri Ptacek - who will tell us about the Forever Farmland Supper by the Agricultural Stewardship Association.
