We're hoping to get the studios rolling end of May at the Hudson Highland Land Trust in Philipstown NY . WE're kicking off with a local childrens group the "River of Words " led by Irene O Garden and Lisa Mechaley . The children will get a chance to help build the studio and will also create new tiles for its exterior re-purposing other material , continuing our theme of Recycling the Studio .
We have 12 artists scheduled to begin short term residencies at this site , once we have installed our small quadrangle of studios behind the HHLTs offices ... The artists are predominantly from the area as we want to minimize our travel foot print .. others will be taking the train which is close by .
Chris Kennedy and the School for the Future will be doing a work shop in June , and HFA will be making an exchange at the Schools project site in Bushwick NY in July . Dates to be confirmed .
