8 Press-Republican — Thursday, March 22,1979 Lawless, Cadman new CMDA directors Ken Lawless By MIMI HARRINGTON , Staff Writer LAKE PLACID — The two top positions at the Center for Music, Drama and Art have recently changed hands. Ken Lawless is now the managing director of the Center, and Lesley Cadman is the new director of the Lake Placid School of Art. Both administrators are familiar with the Center. Lawless has worked at CMDA for two years, holding the positions of director of development, director of Arts in Education, and, most recently, director of program administration, the number-two position at the Center. Cadman has been involved with the art school since January, 1974, the second semester of the school's existence as a full-year school. Before becoming director, Cadman was the dean of the art school. Prior to these changes, Barry Hoffman was the managing direc- tor, and Brian Gormley was director of the art school. Neither man was available for comments on the changes. According to Lawless, \Barry decided to leave, and the board decided to stay with the team they already had.\ This meant pro- moting Lawless from within, and then he set up an administrative team he could work with. Although there have been questions about the financial stability of the Center^ Lawless said, .\.this is one of the most stable arts in- stitutes in America.\ However, financial considerations seem to have had some impact on the changes. Cadman's previous post of dean has been abolished. She is the only administrator of the art school. This seems to have been done partly for economic reasons, and partly because of a general feeling that the Center was administratively top heavy. Cadman does not feel that ths school will suffer because of the ad- ministrative cutback. Praising the faculty's active participation in the school, Cadman said that any gaps would be filled with assistance from the faculty. The board of directors met recently to discuss the future of the Center, and what shape the Center should take to assure a future. Every possible change was discussed, Cadman said, but it was decided to leave the program essentially as it was. \I feel more confident about the commitment of the board to the whole Center than I have in previous times, 1 ' Cadman noted. The Center's summer program of the \Heritage of New York Festival\ will be announced soon. The details of the program may vary from previous summers, but the essence of the program will be the same. Having grown up in Saranac Lake, Lawless sees himself as a local boy, and said he will probably pay more attention to the local au- dience than Hoffman did, but he does not forsee making any major changes in the Center. For the school, Cadman sees only positive changes occuring. \We feel we have a good strong program, and we want to build on the foundation we have.\ Student involvement in the village will increase, she hopes. Also, the enrollment will be rising; next year there may be a total of 40 students. This year there are 27 full-time students. The ultimate enrollment goal is 48 students, the maximum number an advisory committee to the board of directors feels can be managed without adding faculty and studio space. The only question right now seems to be where to house the in- creased number of students. The art school is presently looking for housing to rent next fall. Leslie Cadman Sculpture, watercolors on display Artists and friends Sculptor Sara Black, left, and watercolor artist Cindy Baker with some of their works, which will be on display, starting Sunday, at the Jaye Rogers Gallery. (PR staff photo by Helen McLeod) Bosworth soloist in Maplewood festival PERU — Watercolors by Cindy Baker and sculpture by Sara Black will be featured in a special exhibit at the Jaye Rogers Gallery here, starting Sunday. An opening reception will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, and the ex- hibit will be featured in the gallery until April 9. The gallery is located at the corner of Bear Swamp Road and Telegraph Street in Peru. Mrs. Baker, who lives in Mor- risonville, studied art at Grinnel College in Iowa. She was a national badminton champion, and loves all kinds of sports* particularly skating and skiing. This is reflected in her works, which include several landscapes. \In the winter, I ski out and do sket- ches, and go back home to paint,\ she explained. AVCS seniors to stage play this weekend CLINTONVILLE - The AuSable Valley Senior Class will present \The Wind in the Willows 1 * Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the AVCS Auditorium here. Adapted for the stage by Joseph Baldwin, the play is based on Ken- neth Grahame's novel of the same name. EUrected by Mrs. Julie Bombard, the cast includes Cathy Santor, Bruce Finnegan, Julie Snyder, Sheila Theroux, Martha Molholsk; ,ynn Robare, Amy Allen Leslie Laduke, Sandra Jones, Lori Curran, Bryan Dague, Garth Houde, Alan Deyoe, Teresa Walsh, Jim Com- egys, and Martha,Fournier. Mrs. Donna Ghangelo and Mrs. Cheryl Thomas are artistic ad- visors. Lisa Wilkins is the student director. The play is designed to be entertaining for the entire family. Lively Her technique involves painting on wet paper, so it's not possible, she explained, to paint on location in the winter. \I tried it once, and everything turned to ice,\ she said. Her home is located out in the country, and it puts her subject mat- ter at her doorstep, in all four seasons. She also does portraits, in watercolors. One is of her daughter, >Erin, a pretty blonde with huge, blue eyes. There is no charge to view the display. But, the artist added, it's not just Erin, it's a painting of a child, with that ever-so-expressive childlike feeling. However, unlike most of her other painngs, this one is not for sale. W Mrs., Black's sculptures are abstract, figures that express a message or feeling. Some are of stone or clay and others are bronze. And, since she has them cast from a mold, she can do more than one of each, up to a limited number. For instance, one of a mother and child has been recast five or six times. Most of her works are less than a foot tall, and made to sit on a table. Mrs. Black is a psychologist and taught for a while. Although art was always an avocation it's only been in the last four years she's devoted a lot of time to it. About a dozen of her works will be featured in this, her first show since coming to Platts- burgh, about a year and a half ago. Both artists are relatively new to the area, and both are married to physicians. Mrs. Baker is quiet and soft-spoken, and Mrs. Black is witty and outgoing. Their works are quite different, yet complementary. Follow-up bl Medical Center Art workshop Our Lady of Vi • p.m. Prop Trunk Assumption Ini Music. Drama program.
