Open Studios at Saltonstall Foundation

Summer is here and it’s time to see what artists the Saltonstall Foundation has brought in for residencies this year.   Here’s the announcement from the Saltonstall.  I’ve added links to artists web sites if they have them.   If you go see these talks/installations, let us know what you think by starting a conversation in the comments section!

Each summer the Summer Fellowship Program of the Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts grants one-month residencies at the Saltonstall Arts Colony to New York State artists. Two writers, one photographer and two visual artists are in residence for each month-long session. On the last Sunday of each session there is an Open Studio, a time when the public is invited to come to the colony to see and hear what the artists have been working on, and become more familiar with the colony, the Foundation, and its mission.

This year the Saltonstall Foundation has extended the Summer Fellowship Program to include the month of September, thereby granting residencies to 20 New York State artists in all. This means there are 4 opportunities for you to meet the artists and enjoy an afternoon at the Saltonstall Arts Colony, listening to the writers and poets read from their most recent work, and visiting the studios of the visual artists.

You are cordially invited to join us on one or all of the following Sundays from 2PM – 4PM. The reception begins at 2PM. At 2:30 each writer will read. After the readings, the visual artists will invite you to visit their studios. Light refreshments will be served and there will be time for conversations with the artists. As a tent is set-up on the lawn for the occasion, the events take place no matter the weather.

The dates of the four Open Studios for 2009 are:

Sunday June 14, 2009
