EXPERIENCE WOODSTOCK is about experiencing the town and spirit of Woodstock, NY. Visitors return again and again, and often make their homes here. Known as the “Colony of the Arts” since 1902, Woodstock is located in the Hudson Valley at the foothills of the Catskills. Because of its prominence in the worlds of art and music, Woodstock is often called “the most famous small town in the world.” Above: Maypole revelers at the Woodstock Library Fair

The Woodstock Experience: Featured Gallery
Lotus Fine Art & Design is a family-owned gallery on Rock City Road, run by local artist Jamie Barthel and her husband, Doug. This gallery features photographs, paintings, sculptures, chandeliers and more, all created by artists in the Hudson Valley region. This gallery has been in Woodstock since 2005, making it a relatively new addition to the town’s bustling scene, but it proves its worth daily by displaying gorgeous art that everyone can appreciate. Currently, Lotus Fine Art has exhibits by well-known photographer Barry Feinstein, painter F.E. Green, and also, Jamie herself, with her astounding reverse hand-painted glass. Along with displaying beautiful art for the community, Lotus Fine Art also offers framing possibilities for special posters, photos, and other art.
