Weekend Winter Residencies
Come experience the beauty of the northern Catskills from the Main Street of historic Prattsville. As a weekend resident you will be immersed in the culture of our small town as well as the community of artists and musicians who circulate through this special space. Weekend residencies offer artists a change of scenery, and the space and time to explore a new idea. Winter weekend residents will also be offered the opportunity to participate in a group show in the spring as well as an invitation to apply for a longer summer residency.
Email us to inquire booking a weekend with us.
Summer Artists’ Residencies at the Prattsville Art Center are designed to bring artists from urban areas across the world as well as the Hudson Valley and Northern Catskills, together with rural residents from the remote mountaintop communities that surround Prattsville. Each summer since 2012, we have brought a dozen artists to this pristine river valley to live and make new work on a small town Main Street. Artists contribute to the community by teaching and working in collaboration with local residents, mentoring local youth, and by playing a key role in the ongoing rebuilding of the town. Summer Residencies are tailored to individual projects and interests, and may last from one week to several months. Residents are selected by recommendation and application.
