Open Studios: Session Four

On Friday, we wrapped up session four of the 2016 A.i.R. program with our final Open Studios of the season! It was a night filled with art, readings, and (of course) food…exactly what we needed to keep us warm on a blustery fall evening! Thank you to everyone who came out to support our artists

Work Share

This past weekend we held Work Share, a night where the residents shared examples of their art and listened as their fellow residents did the same. Here’s an sampling of some of the amazing work we had a chance to see! Please join us on September 30 for Open Studios to see more of the visual artists’ work

Byrdcliffe Tour

Presenting a tour of the Byrdcliffe Guild for your viewing pleasure! First stop: the Villetta Inn, where most of our residents live. Next door to the Villetta is the Byrdcliffe Theater, home to many a wonderful production! The theater also marks the trail head for hikes leading to Mt. Guardian Viewpoints and the Bluestone Quarry.

Welcome Session 4!

This is it – the last session of the A.I.R. program for 2016! We’re so excited to spend the next four weeks learning from this group and seeing / reading their beautiful work! Visual artists: Jessica Harvey Padma Rajendran Gabe Chiarello Kayla Gibbons Anne Arden McDonald James Byrne Paul Hunter Tara Vaughan Meredith Nichols Silvia Forni Writers: RN Healey David Greenwood

Open Studios: Session 3

Friday marked the end of a wonderful month with this group of truly inspiring artists. Open Studios gave Woodstock locals the opportunity to see what the residents have been up to for the past four weeks, speak with visual artists about their work, attend our writers’ reading, and celebrate the beginning of September with a potluck! Thanks so

Woodworking Workshop

Talented local woodworker Andrew Gray paid us a visit last week and imparted some wisdom on how to craft beautiful wood pieces from start to finish. After sourcing our own wood from a fallen ash tree in the forest, we built completely functional (and cool-looking!) camp stools. The perfect souvenir from the residents’ time at Byrdcliffe!
