Current & Upcoming Exhibitions

The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild mounts exhibitions and organizes events that honor both the cultural legacy established by the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony in 1902 and contemporary artistic endeavors. The exhibition program features regional, national, and international artists; fine art and functional crafts; historical traditions and cutting-edge experimental projects.

These Days! Byrdcliffe’s Annual Members’ Show

March 11 – April 16, 2023

For the 2023 Annual Members’ Show, Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild asks its members, “What are you doing these days?” Open to all current members, come view works of art in a variety of styles and mediums. A Collector’s Choice Award is selected annually by Byrdcliffe’s exhibitions committee.

Artists-in-Residence Show

April 29 – June 11, 2023

A showcase of artistic creations by the 2022 Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild Artists-in-Residence participants including writers, performers, filmmakers, visual and multimedia artists.

SELF: Portraits + Places

June 24 – August 6, 2023

The premise for this exhibition is the notion of “self” as reflected in the work of three artists – Brenda Goodman, Julie Heffernan, and Elisa Jensen – who investigate the idea of “self” in very different ways, but with depth, honesty, and a virtuoso command of painting.

Here Now: Contemporary Photographers of the Hudson Valley

August 12 – September 26

An exhibition of acclaimed Hudson Valley photo-based contemporary artists who each employ various approaches and techniques to relay stories — primarily of differing cultural backgrounds, identity issues, and a relationship to nature. 

Tasha Depp: Shifting Grounds

October 7 – November 19

Tasha Depp is a representational painter. For over 30 years her works explore our relationship to the environmentally challenged earth. She finds trash to be the most appropriate ground on which to paint; its unfortunate permanence is also its archival longevity. Her paintings combine found surfaces — and sometimes traditionally stretched canvas — with representationally painted imagery, creating objects that defy categorization as either painting, sculpture, or video.

24th Annual 5 by 7 Show

December 2 – 17, 2023

The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild’s 24th Annual 5 by 7 Show is one of Woodstock’s premier events, showcasing artists from the Hudson Valley and beyond. The show is open to everyone, and we accept and display all submissions. Works are exhibited anonymously, a fun way to give equal voice to ALL, with the artist’s name revealed after the work is sold.
