Looking Glass Arts sits on a 15-acre field outside of a small hamlet in the northeastern corner of the Catskill Mountains. Our organization is operated by a small collection of artists committed to making space for artists to retreat, explore, engage and work amid natural beauty.
We are committed to providing resources to artists unaccustomed to being offered space; the army of artists that make up the bedrock of our cultural lives. We welcome everyone, those with prestigious awards and those without such public accreditation.
Our residency sessions are designed for artists to come to Looking Glass Arts for 5-6 days and unplug from their everyday lives. We understand that there is a process of unwinding that has to happen to clear the mind and make space for creative work. We encourage artists to take the time they need– all residencies are self-directed. Residencies are offered on an application basis.
