Join us on Saturday, February 12, at 2 pm for "2x2x4." This dance/movement duet led by dancer Charles Dennis and musician Sal Cataldi engages in creative play with wooden 2x4's by building and destroying structures along with creating landscapes he can dance through.
This performance coincides with the exhibition “For the Love of Wood,” a curated group show with Eric Baylin and Bo Stevens.

ABOUT THE MUSICIAN
Sal Cataldi is a Saugerties & NYC based guitarist/keyboardist. Sal’s solo project Spaghetti Eastern Music fuses krautrock and jazz fusion-fired guitar instrumentals with intimate vocal ballads straight out of the Nick Drake/John Martyn playbook. The New York Times states, “Cataldi’s funk-tinged original instrumentals and acoustic vocal tunes have a beat unmistakably his own” while Time Out New York writes: “His largely instrumental, Eastern-influenced jams are infused with some delicate guitar work and hauntingly moody atmosphere.” Hudson Valley One calls him “part Sergio Leone fever dream, part Ravi Shankar raga, a whirling dervish of musical creation.” Sal Cataldi recently released his live score for “2 x 2 x 4” on Bad Egg Records.
