Before Yaddo Gardens was created in Saratoga Springs, Katrina Trask hosted artists associated with the New York Arts Club at Wiawaka’s Wakonda Lodge. Young artists, such as Georgia O’Keeffe, spent summers painting at Wiawaka. In the summer of 2016 we continued that tradition by hosting 8 talented artists who took up “residence” in Wakonda for a week. During this time they will have the freedom to create in the medium of their choice throughout the grounds and buildings. The week ended with an art exhibit and reception.
We are now accepting applications for the 2017 session, June 24 to July 1st. To apply send a resume, artist bio, headshot and 3 images to firstname.lastname@example.org. Artists will be notified by December 1, 2016 regarding their acceptance.
Artists are charged a modest $650 for the week stay, including meals as well as 25% of all sales during the art show. Below are a few pictures from the 2016 show:
