Supporting Artists through Residencies
The Hudson Valley is home to numerous artists residency programs, many of which support artists from marginalized communities. Kate Millett described her art colony as “life after the revolution,” a place where women could experience freedoms that the Women’s and LGBTQ civil rights movements were fighting for, but that were not yet available in mainstream society. In celebration of the spirit of The Farm, we are hosting staff from some organizations which host local artist residency programs: The Center for Photography Woodstock, Stoneleaf Retreat, Denniston Hill and The Women’s Studio Workshop, for a virtual conversation to help strengthen our community, spread their missions, and learn what the about the urgent needs of the communities they support.
