ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM – 2018 ONLINE APPLICATION
The Byrdcliffe Artist in Residence program provides artists of exceptional talent with uninterrupted time and creative space to research and create new work.

Artists are invited to participate in open studios, work-shares, communal dinners and field trips, or may spend their residency working in the creative solitude of a private studio. Byrdcliffe’s 2018 4-week Artist in Residence Program application is now available via Submittable. The deadline for submitting the 2018 AiR application is March 1, 2018. We also have two private cottages available for 4-week residencies in 2018, Varenka and The Forge. Read more

On March 3 at 8:00 pm, as part of the Annual Members’ Show Salon Style, Byrdcliffe’s Fourth Annual Open Mic Night will give member artists and other residents of the Hudson Valley community the opportunity to flaunt their talents beyond the visual. Singers, poets, banjo-players, comedians, story-tellers, actors, pontificators, and variants thereof are invited to take the mic. The Kleinert/James’ historic Steinway B will be rolled out for any who’d like to play. Participation is open to the first 15 performers who sign up; there will be a waiting list for additional people if time permits. The first 15 slots will be reserved for Byrdcliffe members, but other members of the community are encouraged to come.

The lively, spirited photographer and deejay Sabrina Asch, one of Byrdcliffe’s artist residents who lives at the historic art colony, will emcee the event. Admission is free and open to the public.

Ramp Romp @ BYRDCLIFFE Kleinert/James Center for the Arts
May 12 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

RAMP ROMP: A BENEFIT FOR ACCESSIBILITY AT THE BYRDCLIFFE THEATER
When Byrdcliffe’s historic buildings were constructed from 1902-1903, founders Ralph and Jane Whitehead were thinking about spaces where artists could work in quiet solitude surrounded by mountain views: accessibility for people with disabilities was not on their minds. As Byrdcliffe works toward the goal of making all of its spaces accessible, our Theater on Upper Byrdcliffe Road is a first priority. Ramp Romp is an evening of music and comedy with the goal of building a wheelchair ramp at the Theater, featuring Gilles Malkine and Mikhail Horowitz, Sandy Bell, Paul MacMahon, and more!

Concert Date and Time: Saturday, May 12, 2018, 8:00 pm; doors open at 7:30 pm
Location: BYRDCLIFFE Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY
Tickets: $30 general admission or $27 for Byrdcliffe members; $45 VIP seats (first 2 rows) – buy your tickets online now!

Nineteenth Annual 5 by 7 Show – Preview Party @ BYRDCLIFFE Kleinert/James Center for the Arts
Dec 7 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

ANNUAL “5 by 7” SHOW – HOLIDAY FUNDRAISER
Every year the 5 by 7 Show, with this year’s Preview Party on Friday December 7, brings in hundreds of artists from the Hudson Valley and beyond, who donate artwork to be sold for $100 each. The 5 x 7 artworks are exhibited anonymously at Byrdcliffe’s Kleinert/James Center for the Arts: buyers buy for the pure love of an artwork rather than its perceived monetary value, and emerging artists are discovered. Of course if the purchased artwork is by one of the Hudson Valley’s art-world celebrities who regularly participate—Milton Glaser, Portia Munson, the Starn Twins, Joan Snyder—then that buyer has made an excellent investment! Every year the number of artworks donated and people crammed into the K/J’s high-energy 5 by 7 Show Preview Party goes higher and higher, demonstrating wide support for Byrdcliffe’s programming in exhibitions, artists’ residencies, classes, and more. Artwork purchased from the 5 by 7 show can be taken home as of Friday, December 21.

Exhibition Dates: December 8, 2018 – January 6, 2019, with the Preview Party on Friday, December 7, 5:00 – 7:00 pm
Location: BYRDCLIFFE Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY
Gallery Hours: Monday/Thursday/Friday, 12:00 – 6:00 pm, Saturday/Sunday, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm, or by appointment on Tuesday and Wednesday, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
