Summer Party, Switzerland. Cyanotype by Rebecca Cosenza, this month's LEX*I*CON artist
SUMMER is HERE! Or so we believe with our ready, sweaty imaginations, and bodies wanting to wade in water and munch on watermelon—Mmmmm!
This Summer we take a break from indoor activities and turn our attention to the outdoors with our Community Conversations. We are delighted to announce the Summer Place series, co-hosted with Good Work Institute, an amazing local organization building a network of Hudson Valley creative entrepreneurs and changemakers, working together to do more good work.
We will be visiting a few of our favorite places with partnering orgs: Olana,Woodchuck Lodge and Kites Nest; walking and talking about how we understand place and our relationships with it and with one another through time. All of our conversations are based on topics found in What We’re Reading. We are fortunate to offer these FREE conversations in thanks to the routine support we receive from our Instar Lodge Members, our local sponsors, and friends: Made + Collected, Otto’s Market, Upstate Diary and Farm Table.
This month in our LEX*I*CON journal we feature our very own Instar star, artist Rebecca Cosenza and her studio and reflections on what it means to be an artist. We have opened our applications to:WOMENS WORKPLACE , a co-working space for creatives and club inspired by the Rebekah’s Membership Club. Every day a new application is received we become shooting stars with glee! Apply now to begin working, hanging, making, playing, drinking, eating, talking, and creating together. Read what the club offers on our website and join us.
Thank you to all of you who visited, joined and partnered with us in May for the many events we hosted. Each time we greet a new face and meet an old one, we fall more in love with our creative community. See you soon!
PS. What are you doing this Saturday? On a personal side note, you're invited to my art opening, Wear the Earth at the Re-Institute in Millerton, NY 4-7pm, featuring new sculpture. Stay for a potluck dinner at the farm after. I would love to see you there:)
