Art Omi Weekend 2015

Jul 8, 2015

  The Art Omi Weekend is a celebration with 30 artists who hail from 24 diverse countries. It is an annual event attended by hundreds of art professionals, art lovers, neighbors and friends.

On Saturday, they will lead private tours of selected artist studios. At night, you can kick off your shoes and grab a glass of wine to celebrate the culmination of this years' artist’s residency.

On Sunday, a buffet Country Brunch takes place in an outdoor tent overlooking The Fields Sculpture Park. The brunch is followed by a short walk down the road for the Open Studio Tours, where visitors will see the work the artists have been making for the last four weeks.

To tell us more we welcome Ruth Adams, Omi's Administrative Director, and two artists in the Art Omi residency program. The artists are Tirzo Martha from Curacao - the first resident they've had from there and Anna Kubelik from Switzerland/Germany.

   The 2013 Dance Omi International Dance Collective is now underway. Seven international Dance Artists, representing six different countries, have a collaborative residency at Omi's upstate artistic oasis. The residency program, now in its ninth year, fosters artistic and cultural exchange in the relaxed and rural setting of Omi International Arts Center in Ghent, New York.

Under the direction of Dance Omi Director Christopher Morgan, and this year's Guest Mentor, Monstah Black (a 2011 Alumnus of Dance Omi and an independent choreographer based in New York City), these highly diverse dance artists have spent their together familiarizing themselves with each others work along with experimenting and collaborating.
