Welcome to the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum’s blog. This blog serves as a forum for members of the WAAM and anyone interested in what’s happening in the arts in the Hudson Valley of New York. Lots always happening so check back often for announcements! You’ll also be able to learn more about the artists represented in the members’ gallery and in the Towbin Museum wing, express your thoughts and ideas, and view images and videos of shows and work.
Since its beginnings in 1919, the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum has been committed to exhibiting and collecting work in all media by area artists and supporting the tradition of Woodstock as the “Colony of the Arts.”
Located in the center of the village of Woodstock, New York, the WAAM functions as a cultural center as well as a repository for the work of American artists associated with the Woodstock Art Colony.
Each year, the WAAM presents a full schedule of concurrent solo and group exhibitions, juried and non-juried, of local artists throughout its spacious galleries.
The Main Gallery hosts monthly group exhibitions, the middle gallery features solo shows of contemporary artists and the Phoebe and Belmont Towbin Wing is devoted to art from the Permanent Collection. Small Works exhibitions are shown monthly in the Founders Gallery. Works created by students and children through the Education Program are featured in Youth Exhibition Space (YES!).
The Woodstock Artists Association and Museum celebrates SECOND SATURDAYS along with other members of the Woodstock Arts Consortium. Galleries in Woodstock will be open with special events until 8pm on the second Saturday of the month, June through October.
For more information about any of our events or exhibitions call 845-679-2940.
