Knowing that music deprivation can shrivel one’s ears into ruffled potato chips, DiVinyl Revolution cures musical maladies with a myriad of melodious merchandise—from CDs to vinyl LPs and 8-tracks—and fends off boredom blues with a bevy of books, DVDs, toys, and clothes for funky styles. Vinyl grooves from The Beatles, Frank Zappa, and a wide selection of rock ‘n’ roll luminaries nourish nostalgic yearnings ($1–$15 for records), while quirkier tastes can be sated with artsy, ultra-mod Kidrobot toys. Scope DiVinyl’s Facebook page for updates, as the shop offers intimate live shows and free in-store DJ performances.
A small staff of local artists lead two-hour painting workshops, where they give participants of all skill levels step-by-step instruction in blending backgrounds and building up foregrounds for a range of subjects. They teach attendees how to paint in the style of Van Gogh and Monet, emulating the artists' iconic masterpieces and high-school notebook doodles. The expression experts also impart the know-how to depict whimsical subjects such as an Adirondack sunset, swaying spring tulips, and a lady's cocked hat. Participants paint at communal tables in front of tall windows, which let in ample natural light. Though the studio hosts regular workshops, staffers also hold open-studio time daily and organize painting parties for a range of events, such as birthday celebrations, small-business gatherings, and discoveries of new colors. Studio staff keeps artists fueled with shared appetizer plates, as well as beer, wine, and non-alcoholic pours from an in-studio bar.
