The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild – Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, mounts exhibitions and organizes events that honor both the cultural legacy established by the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony in 1902 and its contemporary artistic endeavors. Beyond spotlighting Byrdcliffe’s utopian crafts tradition, the K/J’s program features regional, national, and international artists; fine art and functional crafts; historical traditions and cutting-edge experiments; and two, three, and four dimensional artworks.

All exhibitions, opening receptions, and gallery talks are free and open to the public.
