And on the same day as the opening of The Itsy Bitsy Biennale, Dorothy Albertini will read from her book Dorothy and Some Kittens at 3 pm. Dorothy will be selling and signing books after her reading. Writes Ann Lauterback, ”There is of course that other Kansas-Oz Dorothy who made a life of dreams, or her dreams into life until she woke up, and she also had a dog. This Dorothy also dreams but she doesn’t wake up and so some kittens, and some winged bugs, accost her and a witch guides her but it isn’t clear if she is a good witch or a bad witch. Dorothy and Some Kittens is a kind of psychic calendar, brilliantly terse and horribly lucid. And, like all true fiction, it invents the real: ‘It seems familiar, but Dorothy doesn’t let that make her suspicious.’ A marvelous, astute chronicle of intimate estrangement.”

Green Kill offers a unique cultural experience and are buying opportunity. Green Kill is located in the heart of the Hudson Valley in New York, a land of  second homes for New York City residents, with a range of tourist destinations. It’s also home for many artists and musicians.  Easy to reach by all the main roads along the Hudson River  from New York City,  Green Kill is on Route 32, at the crossroads of Bard College, State University of New York at New Paltz, Mount Saint Mary College, Ulster County Community College, and Vassar College.

Itsy Bitsy follows the the inaugural show Rebel, Rebel which opened on March 18, 2016, and the Kingston High School Senior Seminar Thesis Show which opened on June 4, 2016.
