Byrdcliffe’s first Open Studios event of the 2015 season will be held on Friday, June 19 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm (readings from 7:00 to 8:00 pm) at the Villetta Inn, located at 3 Upper Byrdcliffe Way in Woodstock. Open Studios are a quintessential Woodstock event that combines visual and literary arts, music and community. Visitors can tour the building and peek in artist studios, where finished and in-progress works will be displayed. Byrdcliffe’s music and literary resident artists will be performing or reading their work as well. This event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
Byrdcliffe’s Artist in Residence program hosts more than a hundred individuals every summer, working in visual art, writing, music composition, ceramics and theater. Residents live and work at the historic Byrdcliffe Art Colony, just north of downtown Woodstock.

-Visual Artists: Travis Fairclough, Silvia Forni, Amber Hany, Samantha Jungheim, Suzy Kopf, Gabriella Sturchio, and Susie Tarnowicz
