Shell House Arts

Shell House Arts is dedicated to supporting artists and designers through programs that help facilitate and deepen creative practices.


Artists and designers are invited to create, build, and imagine new works while living communally for 2-weeks in the Catskill mountains. The summer focus {outwards} creates space for connecting with nature, experimenting with modes of working, and engaging with new ideas.


The winter session is an opportunity for 5 artists or designers to develop projects for two weeks living communally in the Catskills. The winter focus {inward} creates space for reflection, research, and quiet development of new or existing works.  


Shell House Arts was founded in 2018 by Lydia White. We welcome proposals for events or retreats related to our mission.
