has lived and worked in Pawling for over twenty years, and is known under several guises: at Trinity-Pawling he
teaches studio art, art history, and has coached a number of sports, his
passion being squash.
But off-campus Mr. Reade
is probably best known for his
landscape paintings that are sometimes on display at McKinney & Doyle
Mr. Reade had not always been a painter.
He graduated from Wesleyan with a major in art history, and then continued his education while teaching at Trinity-Pawling, learning various disciplines and eventually achieving a master's degree in pottery.
Giving back to the community is important to Mr. Reade
It's why he
puts so much effort into the Pawling Concert Series, which was originally started as a way to bring much-needed culture to the T-P curriculum.
When he stepped in as president of the board, Mr. Reade would "strong arm" his students into attending, but the series' audience has since turned farther away from the student body and closer to the greater Pawling and Hudson Valley communities.
The concert series remains a non-profit organization that is funded completely separate from Trinity-Pawling.
The school lets Mr. Reade
use its auditorium for free, but the series only remains financially secure thanks to the generous sponsorship of a few Pawling businesses.
was thankful for the patronage, but cited financial stability as one of the two great challenges in organizing the series.
The other, he
said, is finding interesting acts.
