Ice Harvest Festival at Hanford Mills Museum cancelled

Ice Harvest Festival at Hanford Mills Museum cancelled

The Ice Harvest Festival was cancelled at the Hanford Mills Museum due to the museum site being “dangerously slippery” from the snow and ice storm on Thursday and Friday, according to a recorded message on the Hanford Mills Museum phone line.

The Ice Harvest Festival website said frozen water on the site, including Mill Pond, created dangerous conditions.

“We were very much look forward to hosting an in-person Ice Harvest after having a virtual Ice Harvest last year due to COVID,” a statement on the website read. “The Ice Harvest is our biggest event of the year, so we share your disappointment. Visitor safety is our priority. Thank you for understanding.”

The Hanford Mills Museum opens for the season on May 15. For more information go to www.hanfordmills.org.

Topic Of Hanford Mills Talk

Sydney Waller, owner of the Art Garage in Cooperstown, holds a selection of photographs from the life of Lavern Kelley, during talk on the famed wood carver this afternoon at the Hanford Mills Museum learning center. “He was my favorite human being and is my favorite subject.” said Waller. The talk discussed his upbringing and the origins of his love for wood carving, which began when her was hospitalized for appendicitis and received a pocket knife as a gift. Kelly went on to create many scale carvings of farm animals, machinery and people which eventually gained him national recognition. His works are now featured in a permanent position at the Smithsonian, with other pieces in The Fenimore Collection and the museum at Hamilton College. The talk was part of a new show at Hanford Mills Museum showcasing the works of several are wood carvers, including pieces by Kelley. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
