YOUR INVITATION:
    Come to the Black Feather Retreat Artists' and Writers' Colony in beautiful Sullivan County, NY (a little more than one hour from NYC) and spend a day with artists and art lovers. Experience the pastoral pleasure of clean fresh air, private meadows, woods, streams, springs, ponds, gardens, stone walls, old barns, country roads and the delightful company of others, like yourself, who enjoy sketching, the human form, art, reading, listening and writing. We have planned a wonderful day of many different types of activities. We will awaken your senses with a delicious brunch and begin a continuous series of figure model sessions, lasting until late afternoon. Rain or shine, you will have a wonderful day filled with art.
       The large Studio Barn (an 18th Century structure) will provide our work space and stage, if it rains, otherwise, there will be ample seating at chairs and tables in the meadow or, if you prefer, you may spread a blanket on the lawn or wander the grounds at will all day. Aside from the scheduled program of figure models, brunch, dessert, and performances, there will be music, poetry readings and amenities such as water, drinks, maps, toilet facilities, and a friendly staff to help you enjoy the day. Despite the beauty of the surroundings, this is an adult program and we do not recommend that you bring children to this program. The pool will be closed for this day. Attendees will be admitted FREE to our Cabaret Evening in the Café Absinthe. You will be delighted stepping back in time to a Parisian Café.
Please call (973)-614-9101 if you have any questions.
