FAEx is a 501(c)3 non-profit 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.

The event features tours of the facilities and the newly completed three-bedroom house that will host up to six artists-in-residence.
