Welcome to Mount Tremper Arts

After twelve years of hosting artists in the beautiful Catskill mountains, Mount Tremper Arts is closing the doors of its residency center. We have had the privilege of watching remarkable art in the process of becoming, and hosting a remarkable artistic community.

The artists who have been in residence at MTA spent their time in every aspect of their artistic process – from thoughtful meditation and idea generation to cast rehearsals and full-fledged performances. In every residency, artists were welcomed to the studio and house, as well as to the mountains, the garden, the river, and the peaceful woods. At night, artists (and often audiences and neighbors) talked around the campfire as bullfrogs serenaded. MTA dinners were family feasts built around  produce from the property’s organic garden. Every residency, like every artist and artistic cohort, was unique.

To our artists, it has been an honor to host you and to provide the opportunity for you to develop your work.

To our audiences, thank you for bearing witness to the craft of our residents.

To our staff and volunteers, thank you for making MTA a genuine home for artists and performance.

To our community, thank you for welcoming MTA, our artists and their art to your hills, towns, and streams.

Mount Tremper Arts’ legacy is a diverse one, including artists and artistry across disciplines, culture, and vision. We hope you’ll get to know (or remember) many of them in these pages.
