Chef Zach Stough will prepare a feast with produce from Black Horse Farms and Story Farms, featuring bread from the Catskill Bread Company and chutney from Atina Foods. Michele Delage of Winkle’s Bakery will prepare desserts with vegan and gluten free options. Musical stylings by local legend Brian Dewan and Celtic band the Catskill Gamblers. Dinner guests eat on hand made ceramic plates by Asia Sosnowski, FAEx’s Ceramics Facilitator, and decorated by many local artists. Each guest will take home their unique dish at the end of the night. Bands will perform intermittently throughout the night. Wine from Hudson Chatham Winery and local beer from Rare Form Brewery will be available by donation. Event design by Liz Shaw Design.
FAEx is an artist residency program for visual and interdisciplinary artists invested in social justice, environmental sustainability, and community engagement. Since 2012, Artists-in-residence have lived and worked onsite using studio spaces and workshops in the repurposed garage and dairy barn. We also offer studio spaces to Greene County artists and makers. The facility, on 57 acres of land in the Catskill Mountains, includes artist studios, organic garden and hiking trails. FAEx encourages an interdisciplinary and conservation-oriented approach to art making. We provide opportunities for artists to deepen their connection with the earth and their communities.
FAEx recently renovated their ceramics workshop and broke ground on a three-bedroom house that will host up to six artists-in-residence.
Special thanks to Village Common Mercantile and to Matt Bua and Cassidy Maze of the Bua Family Band for switching their opening date of the Camp Now Pop Up Shop at the Catskill Community Center to 9.15 so our friends wouldn’t have to choose between our events! More info forthcoming.
