This summer, the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild in its third year presents the very popular Artists Studio Visits. Providing a unique opportunity for personalized dialogue with the area's best-known artists, the Studio Visits allow people to experience the rarely seen working spaces where concept and execution are united. Each artist takes a different approach to the event, sometimes giving a slide talk, sometimes a studio walk-through, but always encouraging questions and conversation. The series closes every year with a catered dinner party at the home of one of the participating artists. The 2015 summer season at Byrdcliffe will take visitors to the studios of Basha Ruth Nelson and Shelley Parriott (May 16); Tim Rowan and Jeff Shapiro (June 6); and Tom Gottsleben and Allen Bryan (August 1, followed by a studio visit and dinner at the studio of Allen Bryan).

Tickets: $50, includes light refreshments; with the exception of the art and dinner duo on August 1, which includes two studio visits and dinner for $125.
