Upstate Art Weekend

Upstate Art Weekend 2021

Friday August 27-Sunday August 29, 11 AM to 6 PM

Christy Gast and Rachel Owens are sculptors who both recently moved to Victorian houses two doors down from each other at the center of Amenia, NY. For UAW, they will team up to present open studios and group shows on their properties. 

Both artists use their homes as live/work spaces in the tradition of David Ireland’s 500 Capp Street in San Francisco. Artworks are created and installed in every room of these Queen Ann-style Victorian homes, which are ever-evolving workspaces for the artists. The gardens surrounding Owens’ home will host a group exhibition of sculptural and sound works from artists who live and/or work upstate including Kate Gilmore, Damien Davis, Heather Rowe and more. Gast will present work in the gardens, woods and small barn by artists who have been residents in the Sappho Room. Participating artists and poets will include Fabienne Lasserre, Hannah Hiassen, Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas, Candystore,  Margaret Namulyanga, Sean Prentice, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Charity Coleman.
