Aug 15th 2010 Quarterly Program

Sunday August 15th – 2pm at St. Peters Church Spencertown
Free and open to the public

Have you ever wondered about how to find information about your ancestors? Does the story of Uncle Jim’s life have a missing link in your family? We have a lecture just for you! The Austerlitz Historical Society will hold its’ annual meeting this Sunday August 15th at 2pm at St. Peters Church in Spencertown. The meeting is free and open to the public. Our guest speaker will be Michelle LeClair. Michelle’s talk will focus on tips and tricks on how to use the latest genealogy research tools to help find out about your ancestors and family history. She will lead a very informative and educational discussion about the world of genealogy.

Michelle is a local resident who graduated from Chatham High School and the College of Saint Rose. Her passion for genealogy began in 8th grade when she was doing a school project researching family information. She interviewed many family members and learned a lot of information for her project. At the age of 12, she was hooked and has been doing research ever since. For the last 2 years, Michelle has volunteered at the Silvio O. Conte National Archives in Pittsfield, Mass. She leads a class there that focuses on French and Canadian history. She was named Volunteer of the Year after having volunteered 320 hours of service to the National Archives.

After the lecture by Michelle, the Society will conduct a brief business meeting and the election of Board of Trustees members for a 3 year term will occur. The New Prospective Board members include: Dorothy Bakker, Roy Carney, Donna Peterson, and Michael Rebic. Members who are returning to the Board include Wendy Diskin, Rebecca Greer, Richard Light, Sue Mugler, Howard Reznikoff, Marlene Murdock, Robert Herron, Norma Edsall, Robert Kleinberg and Lynn O’Connell.

Apr 17th 2010 Quarterly Program

PRESENTATION ON APRIL 17TH AT 4PM

Matthew McKeeby, The Berlin Limner, will give a presentation titled, “The Life of Limner: Folk Art Painting, Portraits, and Decoration in the Northeast” on Saturday April 17, 2010 at 4pm. The presentation will be held in the Harvey House on the grounds of Old Austerlitz Village, the home of the Austerlitz Historical Society on Route 22 in Austerlitz. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the presentation. This event is part of the Society’s “Odd Saturdays” program and is free and open to the public.

What is a limner you ask? A limner is simply an artist or painter, although the term has come to be used specifically in reference to painters in the North American Colonies who worked during the 18th and 19th centuries. Limners once travelled the countryside providing any and all painting services. The Berlin Limner has revived that tradition, offering a range of classic American folk art reproductions, originals, and decorative services.

Since the late 1980’s Matthew McKeeby has been crafting the very best quality oil-on-canvas reproductions of the works of great American folk artists, specializing in the world of Edward Hicks and the decorative painting style of Rufus Porter. About his work, Matthew says, “I really enjoy connecting with folks who enjoy the American folk art aesthetic and recreating the feeling of life in that earlier period. There was a real sense of limitless possibilities then, so much to be learned. Of course, just making art is a joy too.”

Matthew is a current resident of rural Berlin, NY. He grew up near Binghamton, NY and also lived in southeastern Pennsylvania. He has a BA in English from the University Of Pennsylvania, an MAT English from Union College and is a Teacher of English and Theatre at Averill Park High School. He is an Advisor to APHS Off-Broadway Players and Director of over thirty productions. He is self-taught as a painter in the limner tradition; all types of utilitarian and decorative painting in the manner of mid-19th century artists. You can find out more about Matthew at his website http://www.berlinlimner.com or by phone at 518-658-0987.

Nov. 15th 2009 Quarterly Program

Sunday, November 15th at 2:00 PM is the next Quarterly Membership Meeting of the Society. The meeting will be held in the Harvey House on the grounds of Old Austerlitz, Route 22, Austerlitz NY.

Our guest speaker will be John Porritt, an English craftsman with an extensive knowledge and collection of Windsor chairs. Porritt, who recently relocated with his wife and daughter from England to Spencertown, NY, has had a decades-long fascination with Windsor chairs. Although he is a native of England, he has a special fondness for the American Windsor chair styles, and taught himself to craft the chairs after visiting the United States in 1985 and viewing them at various museums.

For his presentation on Nov. 15, Porritt will show about 10 chairs from his own collection, including an early 19th century British Windsor chair designed with American and French influences. He will talk about the history of Windsor chairs, their design and techniques for making them, as well as talk about his craft.

A regular AHS business meeting will be held after the presentation, followed by light refreshments.
