THE CATSKILL CENTER WORKS TO ENSURE A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR THE ECONOMY, ENVIRONMENT AND CULTURE OF THE CATSKILLS
Since the early 1800’s and the beginning of the American Landscape movement, the Catskill escarpment has remained an enduring source of artistic inspiration for generations of artists. Our residency provides a tranquil and rustic workplace. A retreat for artists, working in a variety of disciplines, located in the living landscape where American landscape art began. The residency at the Platte Clove cabin is near the villages of Tannersville, Hunter, and Windham in upstate New York. Situated at the Catskill Center’s Platte Clove Preserve, artists will reside in a rustic cabin on the edge of 208 wild, pristine acres full of hiking trails, multi-tiered waterfalls, and old growth forests. The cabin is located along Plattekill Creek, and on several popular trail heads. Hikers are commonly seen around the cabin and in the area.
