Landscapes for Landsake Art Sale & Exhibition Opens Columbus Day Weekend- Cambridge-

For 28 years the Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) has worked to accomplish a singular mission: protect the farms, rich soils and agricultural landscape in Washington and Rensselaer counties for future generations. In that time they’ve managed to conserve 125 farms and 20,042 acres. For the last 16 years, a significant source of funding for this mission has come from Landscapes for Landsake Art Sale and Exhibition, a celebration of the land by the community of local artists.

The show opens with a wine and cheese reception on Saturday, October 6th from 12 to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 per person. The gallery is also open from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday and Monday free of charge. This year’s exhibition features the work of 60 artists, fourteen of which are participating for the first time. Many of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work throughout the weekend. The sale takes place in the historic barn at Maple Ridge, 172 State Route 372 in the hamlet of Coila, just west of the Village of Cambridge.

Landscapes for Landsake is the region’s largest art buying event of the season and ASA’s largest fundraiser of the year. Participating artists generously donate 50% of their proceeds to support ASA’s farmland conservation work.

Teri Ptacek, ASA’s executive director, explains “This event celebrates the connection between the art and the landscapes we are working to protect. It’s what makes Landscapes for Landsake so special. The success of this event has had a tremendous impact on ASA’s ability to protect local farms.”

This year’s exhibition is curated by John and Gigi Begin, of Cambridge, NY. For the past three years, John and Gigi have generously donated their time, imagination, talent and experience to Landscapes for Landsake resulting in the most successful years in the event’s history. “There really is no other venue in the region that has all of these incredibly talented local artists in one place at one time. The artwork includes oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, photography and pottery. It’s a must see,” Gigi says.

Christopher Pop-In-Kins will be hidden on every train to see who’s been naughty and nice. Santa and Mrs. Claus will make a surprise visit to provide every child with a special gift.

This Christmas elf loves to play hide-and-seek almost as much as he loves little children. Every time your child closes his or her eyes and goes to sleep, Christopher Pop-In-Kins finds a new hiding place. He loves nothing more than to watch your child race around looking for him the next morning. Of course, they’ll both giggle with delight when he's found.

Bring Christopher and Christina Marie Pop-In-Kins into your home for the holidays and create treasured memories that your family will remember forever. Christopher Pop-In-Kins remains one of the oldest, most loved Christmas elves available today. Holiday traditions are an important way for you to connect and grow with your children. And now you can easily add more precious memories to your sacred Christmas festivities year after year.
