Open House & Alumni Parties
Every year, The Millay Colony open house offers our friends and neighbors a chance to see new work from our dazzling resident artists. We offer open studios, readings and music from Millay alumni and our special guests. In recent years we have welcomed a huge variety of artists including indie rock duo Christy & Emily, poet and former member of the Fugs, Ed Sanders, Walking the Dog Theater Company, the Mass MoCA, composer alumni Caroline Mallonee, Emily Lacy & Samita Sinha, the Yellow House Jazz Band, alumna Laura Silver performing hula hoop dances & Emily Skllings Dance Co. with 'Ambient Dance.' All of this incredible art is matched by the incredible local food & wine...homemade sausages from Fleisher's Grassfed & Organic Meats, home-baked deliciousness from Hawthorne Valley Farms, bedazzling hard cider from Hudson-Chatham Winery and lovingly selected wines from Hudson Wine Merchants. Alumni artists transform our meadows and buildings with art and decor of all kinds.
We hope the Open House offers visitors the chance to experience the ways in which nature and art mix on our mountaintop home.
The Millay Colony offers readings and performances in New York and in our own lovely environs...
