To the Quilt

Textiles take center stage in the Hudson River Museum’s bold and bright new exhibit, Wall Power! Spectacular Quilts From the American Folk Art Museum. Featuring several works borrowed from the expansive collection of the New York City-based institution, the show includes a fantastical grouping of fiber arts that flirt with and expand conceptions of color, gender, geometry, and representation, ongoing through September 26.

July 10: School of Rock

The White Plains Performing Arts Center has begun welcoming back audiences to once again enjoy live experiences. This month, they celebrate their recent reopening with a rockin’ good time. Rock ’N’ Radio: Music’s Biggest Hits will feature eight decades of chart-topping megahits from legends like The Beatles, Sinatra, Elvis, Elton John, Lady Gaga, and Whitney Houston, among many others, performed by a talented tribute band.

July 13: Keep on Truckin’

When Grammy Award-winning rockers Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks perform live, jam-band fans hit the road. Taking the stage this month outdoors at Connecticut’s Ridgefield Playhouse, Tedeschi Trucks: Fireside Live will feature the lauded musicians performing alongside a different group of Tedeschi Trucks members each evening — ranging from four to seven musicians depending on the show — in a style reminiscent of the duo’s popular Fireside Sessions virtual performance series.

July 11 thru Sept 19: Do or Diagram

In this wide-ranging exhibition, visual media, poetry, books, sound, and a host of other varied art forms combine to explore themes of family history, historical objects, and world history. Named after the branching diagram used to delineate species, Cladogram: 2nd KMA International Juried Biennial will be on show from July 11 through September 19 at The Katonah Museum of Art. Judged by Minerva Projects founder Yasmeen Siddiqui, the exhibition will comprise both local artists and those from more than 21 countries across the globe.

July 18: Go for Baroque

Step back in time with a selection of classical works hailing from another era when the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra takes the stage at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts’ Venetian Theater. There, they will perform a program of English works from the 17th century, including pieces by Gibbons and Purcell, using the authentic instruments and stylistic conventions endemic to that spirited era in musical history.
