Fall for Art Takes Millerton By Storm

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings Despite the heavy rains, every shop in Millerton was hopping on Saturday night for the first Fall for Art celebration, which promised 50 artists and 30 parties in 3 hours. At the Motorworks (left), which normally repairs vintage sports car, Alex Kramer had his friend Sophia Tarrasov hang her paintings (and sell her hand-screened T-shirts) in his garage. At Gilmor Glass, Jonathan Bee (with an assist from local real estate titan Leo Flood) made an art installation featuring a stretch limousine, lace panels and complimentary glasses of champagne. And at Little Gates & Co.Wine Merchants, where there was live folk music, Andrew Gates poured and poured wine from Hudson-Chatham Winery as it poured and poured outside.
