Shell House Arts

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

During our biannual residency sessions, artists and designers are invited to create, build, and imagine new works while living communally for two weeks in the Catskill mountains.

Winter Artist Residency

Returning 2021


The winter focus {inwards} creates space for reflection, research, and development of new or existing works.  


The summer focus {outwards} creates space for connecting with nature, experimenting with modes of working, and engaging with new ideas.


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