Shandaken Artist Studio tour July 18 - 20 2008
A weekend of fine art in the Catskills.
Visit our website:

Only a quarter of a tank of gas from
New York City is an area so beautiful
it inspired the first American school of
artists. The Catskill Mountains still work
their magic on some of the country’s
most creative people, hidden away
in the woods. On July 18-20, we
give you the rare opportunity to visit
more than 30 artists in their homes
and studios, as well as many more in
our galleries and shops.
Participating Artists Include:
Barneche Designs, Joel Benton, Durga Bernhard,
Michael Boyer, Susie Brown, John Byer,
Dave Channon, Margarete de Soleil, Ric Dragon,
Wendy Drolma, Bronson Eden, Lynn Fliegel,
Dana Fraser, Jim Gardner, Chip Gallagher,
Shalom Gorewitz, Wendy Grossman, Hot Stuff
Blown Glass, Peggy Kay, John Kilb,
James Knight, Dakota Lane, Ken Lovelett,
Mt. Tremper Arts, Naugatuck Narragansett,
James Nevin, Margaret, Gavin and Jesse Owen,
Paloma, Christie Scheele, Rita Schwab and
Salvatore Scalisi, Judith Singer, Michelle Spark,
Faye Storms, Anique Taylor, Richard Treitner,
Peter Wye and Mighty Xee.

Start your tour at The Arts Upstairs Gallery
in Phoenicia or the Pine Hill Community Center,
both of which have art and fine crafts on view.
Pick up a map, form an impromptu carpool to
save gas and have other art-lovers to chat with
and enjoy your day.

Along the way, stop to cool off with a dip in
the Esopus Creek, known for fishing, tubing and
kayaking; visit unique stores such as Gateway
to Tibet, Mystery Spot Antiques, Tenderland
Home, the Nest Egg and Cloudspinners; restore
your soul with views of our beautiful mountains
and streams (the more adventurous may want to
take a hike) and restore your physical body with
a facial or massage, a brick-oven pizza from
Brio’s, stacks of pancakes from Sweet Sue’s,
meals from Al’s, Ricciardella’s, the Pine Hill Arms
or the Phoenix.

Accommodations vary from campgrounds,
cabins, motels and beautifully restored Victorian
B&Bs like the Phoenicia Belle to the Catskill
Rose and world-class Emerson Inn.
