August Arts Festival

The first annual august art festival, held by the internationally renowned Women's Studio Workshop (WSW), is coming to Rosendale this August, featuring a month of multidisciplinary art installations and related events. More than 20 local, national, and international artists will create contemporary videos, installations, performance art, and sculptures along the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail from August 7 to August 29, beginning with a video festival curated by Dani Leventhal at Rosendale Theatre and an afterparty at the Belltower on Main Street. Other artists confirmed thus far include Emily Speed, Barbara Westerman, and Melissa Jay Craig. This is the first year of what WSW hopes to be a longstanding tradition of bringing the arts, art lovers, and economic vitality to Rosendale for years to come. "WSW has a long tradition of presenting artists' work in nontraditional spaces," says Ann Kalmbach, Executive Director and co-founder of WSW. "august art festival is our most ambitious effort to date, celebrating artists, our fabulous town, and the newly opened Rail Trail connection between WSW and Main Street." WSW has brought more than 5,000 artists from around the world to Rosendale since 1974. Wsworkshop.org
