Spirit of place refers to the unique, distinctive and cherished aspects of a place; often those celebrated by artists and writers, but also those cherished in folk tales, festivals and celebrations. It is thus as much in the invisible weave of culture as it is the tangible physical aspects of a place…Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia.
In 2019 the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum will mark its 100th anniversary. As we approach this impressive milestone it is fitting to reflect on the evolution of this unique organization and its service as a regional art center, an exhibition space for artist members, as well as its significance as a small, but important American art institution.
