The Gallery at the Woodstock Playhouse
The signed Iconic Photographs of Elliott Landy, legendary local and official photographer of the Woodstock '69 Festival, are now on exhibit in the galleries of the Woodstock Playhouse. Elliott Landy's photographs document the music scene during that classic rock and roll period which culminated with the 1969 Woodstock Festival. All stellar, iconic photographs are available for purchase.
Additionally on display, there is a collection of Summer 'Woodstock Festival' booklets from 1957 through 1968, an image of Richie Havens on stage at the Woodstock Playhouse in 1968, and more historic posters celebrating the roots of the Woodstock Playhouse and Festival.
You can also view an oil painting on linen created by Artist Mary Elwyn, cousin of Woodstock Playhouse founder, Robert Elwyn. The painting entitled “The Sawkill – Woodstock NY” is signed and inscribed with title and “to commemorate Robert Elwyn and the 75th anniversary of the Woodstock Playhouse” penned on the canvas support framing. The painting is a very rare work of art as Mary Elwyn’s oil paintings are quite limited in number and her family lineage is connected to the very establishment of the hamlet of Woodstock and the Woodstock Playhouse.
Our History wall is a wonderful way to understand and embrace the history of our Playhouse as both a rural extension of Broadway and launching pad for so many careers in major motion pictures, Broadway and television in the fields of performance, design, direction, music and so much more.
