Artist in Residence

Before Yaddo Gardens was created in Saratoga Springs, Katrina Trask hosted artists associated with the New York Arts Club at Wiawaka’s Wakonda Lodge.  Young artists, such as Georgia O’Keeffe, spent summers painting at Wiawaka.  In the summer of 2016 we continued that tradition by hosting 8 talented artists who took up “residence” in Wakonda. In 2019 we welcome twelve talented women who will stay with us from June 29th – July 5th, 2020.
