About Stagecoach Run Art Festival
The Catskills’ biggest self-guided art tour celebrates its 25th festival, after a hiatus due to the pandemic.
The annual, free, self-guided tour of artists’ studios and galleries in this western Catskills community delivers great art experiences to crowds of spectators and collectors from all over the state.
2019’s festival had 70+ participating artists at 25 venues and more than five hundred visitors over two days.
Begun in 1995 by fifteen Treadwell artists, the festival’s original mission was to spotlight artists and creatives living and working in the region. The festival aims to use an open-studio model to strengthen (sometimes forge) relationships between creatives and their neighbors in an authentic way, while simultaneously demonstrating the undeniable financial and cultural value that artists can add to a community. Given the changes this region has undergone over the last few years, this mission seems even more relevant and important.
Participation in the Festival is by invitation only, ensuring the work is both diverse and of the highest caliber.
We look forward to seeing you at this historic event!
