Wassaic Project Opens for the Summer of 2012

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Samara DiMouro reporting from Wassaic.
A beautiful afternoon on Saturday, June 16, gave way to a charming evening as the Wassaic Project held a benefit to kick off its fifth annual summer exhibition, Return to Rattlesnake Mountain. Guests enjoyed local food and wine served on the deck of Maxon Mills, a once-condemned but now artfully repurposed grain tower. Wassaic Project co-directors Eve Biddle, Bowie Barnett-Zunino, and Jeff Barnett-Winsby (at left) marveled at the enthusiastic crowd that gathered to view the of-the-moment work by more than 100 artists displayed in the mill’s seven floors and to hear guest speaker Alanna Heiss, founder of P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City. The night ended with a silent auction including work by artists Danielle Durchslag, Breanne Trammell, Jeila Gueramian, Brody Condon, Carl D’Alvia, and Biddle, providing a way for viewers to give back to the project and to help ensure the continuation of the exhibit for many summers to come. Crowds will be returning for the annual summer festival August 3-5, and the summer exhibition will remain on display until September 2.
