Committed to developing an alternative space for artists to create new work and share skills, Ann Kalmbach, Tatana Kellner, Anita Wetzel, and Barbara Leoff Burge founded the Women's Studio Workshop in 1974. Programs were centered on the artistic process and often informed by feminist values. WSW maintains facilities for etching, letterpress, papermaking, book arts, silkscreen, 3D work, ceramics, and photography. Studios are housed in an historic building, located in the foothills of the Hudson Valley's Shawangunk Mountains and are extensively equipped and well-maintained. Artists can take workshops, rent the studios, schedule private instruction, or apply for artist residencies. Campus Locations: Marriott Library - J. Willard (M LIB)
