About Mount Tremper Arts
Nestled in the Catskill Mountains, just 2 hours from New York City, Mount Tremper Arta (MTA) supports contemporary artists in the creation and presentation of new works of art. Founded in 2008 by photographer Mathew Pokoik and choreographer Aynsley Vandenbroucke, MTA is an artist-run space that fosters an environment of creative risk taking and intellectual curiosity through an integration of performances, exhibitions, artist residencies, and hybrid food and art programming. With an intensive Summer Festival and year-round Creative Development Residencies for artists, MTA nurtures both the solitude necessary for making artistic work and the community needed to share it. Local agricultural models influence MTA’s programming, and issues of economic and environmental sustainability are a core concern of the center.
