“yellow ferns” Jeremy Oberle


“ferns, backroad in Austerlitz” Wendy Noyes

In a show entitled “Look Again,” photographer Wendy Noyes and painter Jeremy Oberle exhibit their artwork at the Chatham Bookstore.

They invite the viewer to examine anew the familiar environments of plants, trees, and landscapes encountered daily. Jeremy Sherer Oberle exhibits her black ink and colored pencil drawings as well as paintings in acrylic, watercolor, and gouache. Wendy Noyes’ black and white and color photographs of remarkably similar subjects offer a conversation between the two.


Marie White Small
Stony Kill
Saturday, October 29, 5-7 pm


Set in Canaan, NY, on a fictional road and farm bordered by the Stony Kill,  Small’s novel “is a fine exploration of personal history and the significance of place as a means of finding oneself.” – “Publishers Weekly”

A conversation with Thomas Chulak from the bookstore and a Q&A follows a brief reading. There will be refreshments of pie samples by the author, a long-time baker. Recipes are based on the kitchen wisdom of the fictional character Miss Euphrates, a central figure in the novel.

The event is free – please join us!
