On July 22, 2018, escape the city and join us for an afternoon and evening of art & words in the woods.

Taking place in front of the historic barn of Art at the Birches, the sunset soirée is a meeting ground for creatives, thought-provokers, and those who just love a good escape from the concrete borders of New York City.

While the main event centers around the performance of words — our Rhinebeck Residents will speak to (or read from) the work they created during the residency, all of which takes aim at “Power And,” our topic for Issue 8 — the soiree doubles as the annual celebration of our organization, and so you can expect good food, great drink, thoughtful beings, a not-so-silent auction, and live music.

On June 4, you’ll see detailed information about time, location, and how to RSVP. In the meantime, enjoy a few windows into last year’s hootenanny below. To see the full album of images, click here.
