SPACE on Ryder Farm


Your artistic home away from home

SPACE on Ryder Farm is a non-profit artist residency program located an hour north of New York City on the grounds of Ryder Farm in Brewster, New York. SPACE creates an environment singular in its ability to invigorate artists and innovators and their work, and contributes to the sustainability and resourceful preservation of one of the oldest organic family farms on the East Coast.


 

SEASONAL SUPPER WITH HAYFIELDS

Join us for a Seasonal Supper at Ryder Farm in partnership with Hayfields! The evening will feature a communal farm-to-table meal on our outdoor lawn alongside performances by Grace McLean and Brittain Ashford.



 

PROGRAMS

Time at SPACE provides artists and innovators the opportunity to create away from the stress and noise of everyday life in the company of others. Residencies are centered around three farm fresh meals per day. Residents have flexibility and are strongly encouraged to structure their days to best suit the needs of their project. Residencies culminate in informal sharings of the work.
