Byrdcliffe was founded over 100 years ago to provide a creative haven for artists of all walks of life. Artist Residencies offer uninterrupted time and space for artists of all disciplines to work in a creative community on our 250-acre Catskill mountain historic campus just two hours north of NYC. We provide living accommodations and private studio space, hosting musicians working independently as well as collaboratively.
5 Month Seasonal Residencies and 1 Month Residencies are offered.
5 Month Residents live in one of Byrdcliffe’s eight private cabins as an autonomous live/work space. Each cottage varies in its size and structure and is able to accommodate 1-2 people. Individuals, couples (minimum one working artist), and collaborative/non-collaborative artist duos are encouraged to apply. Please note that Byrdcliffe unfortunately is unable to accommodate children at this time. See complete cabin listings, including photos and a floorpan, to determine individual suitability by visiting the following link: http://www.woodstockguild.org/artist-residencies/5-month-residencies/
1 Month Residencies are offered for individuals and couples with private and communal housing available. Each resident receives a private studio and living space.
