What's going on in arts & leisure from April 2 to April 8
GRAHAMSVILLE, NY — For a safe way to leave your house, the Time and the Valleys Museum has a new Rondout Reservoir driving tour mobile app. The tour of the 6.5-mile reservoir includes seven stops that can be visited in any order, and all are safe pull-off locations.
The creation of the app was funded through a grant from the Catskill Watershed Corporation in partnership with the NYC DEP. Due to the inconsistent signal around the reservoir, the app is best downloaded before arrival. The app is free and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, Google Play and the museum website at www.timeandthevalleysmuseum.org.

HAWLEY, PA — “Community Tapestry” is a collaborative community project to express feelings about the community and ourselves: “Each of us serves as a thread to the fabric that exists as the whole. What does home mean to you? How are you connected and how do you contribute to the community? What should people know about you?”
The project will culminate in an art installation at Bingham Park that will be on display from Thursday, May 21 to Sunday, May 31. Artists, writers, musicians, performers and volunteers are all invited to be a part of the project. To see participation details, visit Community Tapestry NEPA on Facebook. Art panels for the installation need to be completed and donated to the Hawley Library by Wednesday, May 13.
The project is sponsored by Pocono Secrets. Due to the virus, dates may change. Follow Community Tapestry NEPA on Facebook for updates. For more information, visit www.poconosecrets.com or email email@example.com.
REGION — During this world-wide pandemic, multi-world record fitness trainer Andre Turan, A.C.E. certified, is offering live internet streaming workout classes at no charge. The program is maintained as a donations-based service.
Classes are designed for people of all fitness levels. Set up is easy.
Members must have a webcam, tablet or phone and access to the internet. Due to the personal approach of this service, class sizes are limited.
REGION — The Barryville Area Arts Association is adjusting to the current health crisis by hosting a virtual reception for “Poets and Painters: A Celebration of Kindred Spirits.”
For several months, artists have been hard at work creating paintings inspired by local poets; at the same time, poets have been creating poetry inspired by the work of local artists. The virtual reception is scheduled for Saturday, April 4 at 4 p.m. It will be a YouTube World Premiere event found at www.bit.ly/baaareception.
“We won’t put the health of our community at risk with in-person events,” says BAAA Director Nick Roes. “We also refuse to abandon our community when spirits need lifting the most. So, we’ll do our best to feed your souls with poetry, art, and music by creating virtual events, communicating more frequently, and inviting you to be more active in our online community.”
