Artist’s MuseAlexandra Jay Snyder is wearing a Mary Green 100 percent silk gown, kimono, and chemise slip from Vidakafka in Woodstock.

The Byrdcliffe Art Colony was an auspicious setting for our spring fashion shoot. The weather was as cooperative as the Woodstock/Byrdcliffe Guild, who allowed us access to many of the arts colony's historic buildings. The Guild carries on the work that Ralph Whitehead and others began as a utopian experiment on 1,500 acres outside the village of Woodstock in 1902. The property is smaller now, but it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Byrdcliffe continues to be home to a year-round and seasonal community of multidisciplinary artists, with summer residencies and classes offered in tactile arts like woodworking,
jewelry making, and ceramics.

On Saturday, April 14, the Woodstock/Byrdcliffe Guild will host its first Spring in Bloom fashion show at the Kleinert/James Arts Center, a fundraiser for the Guild's summer artist-in-residency program. The fashion show will feature clothing from 20 stores in the Woodstock area, as well as models from the community (some of whom are featured on page 53). The show is from 5:30-7:30pm. Tickets are $40. (845) 679-2079;
