Join us at the colony this summer!


You’re invited to visit the beautiful Saltonstall Arts Colony and meet our juried Fellows.

New York State poets, writers, photographers, filmmakers, and visual artists who have been awarded 2- and 4-week summer residencies at the colony in Ithaca, NY present their work and open their studios for these enjoyable and inspiring Open House events.


Refreshments will be served. These are rain or shine events. (Readings will take place indoors if it’s raining.) Always free of charge. Hope to see you there!


Free and open to the public. All are welcome! The Saltonstall Arts Colony is located at 435 Ellis Hollow Creek Road, 7 miles east of downtown Ithaca (see map below).
