CWC Opens New Exhibit - 'Starry Nights'
“Starry Night” photos on view at CWC
The Catskills are famous as a destination for star gazers in search of deep, dark skies, and photographer Garth Battista’s new exhibition at the Catskill Watershed Corporation shows why.
“Starry Nights: Catskill Sky Photos” is a selection of 20 spectacular nighttime images by the Halcottsville resident who has spent countless hours in all seasons capturing the vast expanse of sparkling stars and glowing planets with his digital camera.
The public is welcome to view “Starry Nights” at the CWC, 905 Main Street, weekdays from 8 to 4:30 through May 10. It’s advisable to call ahead to be sure the exhibition space is not in use when you plan to visit: 845-586-1400. All of the photographic prints on metal are for sale.
“Whether it's the brilliant colors and complex structure of the Milky Way galactic core, or the mesmerizing paths of star trails around the north star as the earth turns, the night sky is filled with beauty beyond our imagining,” says Battista. “By taking long exposures -- anywhere from 15 seconds to over nine hours -- you can see details that aren’t perceptible to the naked eye.”
Battista seeks out and in some cases illuminates local landmarks to provide a sense of perspective for the infinite sky that dominates his photographs. A few examples are star trails whirling over the Balsam Lake Mountain fire tower, the Milky Way over Halcottsville Cemetery, or the Big Dipper blazing over a parked red tractor in Roxbury. One summer night, Battista captured an image of stars competing with a maze of firefly trails – “a bioluminescent orgy.” On another occasion his lens revealed the Milky Way over mountain fog, with Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars all visible.
Garth Battista has lived in Halcottsville for 20 years with his wife Lilly and daughters Isabel and Rose. He is a former book publisher, and now works as an educator at the Manhattan Country School Farm in Roxbury. He is a member of the Halcottsville Fire Department, and is an avid runner and hiker with an affinity for sailing and boat building. His photographs can be seen on Instagram (@sea_feverish). Battista can be reached at email@example.com.

MEMOIRS OF A FORGOTTEN MAN
May 31 - June 16th
MEMOIRS OF A FORGOTTEN MAN by D.W. Gregory
Alexei S. is a Soviet journalist with perfect recall – an annoyance to his editors and a threat to Stalin’s propaganda machine. When a psychologist, desperate to rehabilitate herself, aims to publish a study of him, the bureaucracy must step in to investigate the truth of the ‘Memory Man’.
Based on true events, this haunting historical drama is a suspenseful and timely reminder of the power of facts…and fiction.
