Living History At Hartwick’s Yager Days

Yager Fun Day Thrills

Young Spear-Throwers

Ron Maxwell, Sidney, in tan, teaches Oneonta boys Hunter Booth, Matthew Stedman, Ethan Stedman, and Corbin Booth the finer points of spear throwing outside the Quad at Hartwick College this afternoon. The workshop was part of the first Yager Days, a family event planned and organized by Museum Studies students to teach children about history and archaeology. Participants could learn to throw an atlatl, make art prints in the style of Warhol, dig for arrowheads, listen to native American folklore and more. "We had about 80 people come through." said Hartwick senior Alex Wichowski, who was manning the Junior Archaeology table. "Wehope that this event will continue on in coming years."

The museum contracted with the Williamstown (Mass.) Art Conservation Center, which relined, cleaned, refilled and revarnished the painting. In addition, the frame was stabilized and repainted, as recommended in a 2012 conservation survey of the museum’s collection, was made possible through funds granted by the Greater Hudson Heritage Network.

Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) painted “Winter in the Berkshire Hills” in 1909,  one of a number of winter landscapes completed during the early part of Kent’s career, known as his “Monhegan Island” period. The painting exhibits the bold brush strokes and contrasting colors typical of Kent’s work during this period.
