Jamie Larson reports from Annandale-on-Hudson. The Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College is world class and its SummerScape seasonal offerings are some of the best and most fun of the whole year. So what better time to celebrate and support the wonderful institution than the SummerScape Gala on Saturday, July 14 hosted at the historic Montgomery Place mansion. The event also honored artists, neighbors, owners of the Hotel Tivoli and “creators of beauty in the world,” Helen and Brice Marden. If that doesn’t sound like enough of a high-end happening, the evening featured a dinner by Twisted Soul, a live auction and a performance by none other than Patti Smith with Lenny Kaye.
