A multi-generational space for artists to develop new works
"It was immensely helpful for me to have the time away from the city to jumpstart my composing for this current project of solo piano pieces. I was able to complete four brand new compositions while I was at the residency. The view from the Harmony House balcony certainly helped!" –Adele Fournet, PhD Candidate in Ethnomusicology at NYU
Aunt Karen’s Farm is an incubator residency site for individuals, families and companies whose life and work involves a professional relationship to the arts and education community. Amid the natural landscape of rural New York, we believe that creativity and learning are enriched and grow from focused explorations between disciplines. The pastoral landscape encourages a philosophical dialogue between culture and agriculture. We encourage programs which are environmentally sustainable and nurture an appreciation of the land. We welcome residencies that refresh and restore vision and purpose. We are process, not product driven. Aunt Karen’s Farm provides a site for cultivation of both earth and spirit.
