“I am preparing (reluctantly) to leave Soaring Gardens today, and I'm sending this entirely inadequate email to express my gratitude for this beautiful gift of a residency with my collaborative fellow artists, Martha and Alice. Words cannot express how deeply touched I am by my experience here. . . .I was also very touched by the church setting, which is bucolic and peaceful, and offered so much in terms of my own creativity - the goats, the horses, the winding gravel roads, the endless horizon. It was all magical. . . . it was a transformative experience being here. For me especially, I found my thinking deepened and my creative process grew in leaps and bounds over the few short weeks.” ----Nan Ring

“I can’t believe what a magical month it was, living and working at Soaring Gardens. Now that I am back in New York City, it seems like a beautiful dream. But I know it was real because I am home with tremendous work accomplished and a feeling of peace and renewal that is with me still.” ----Susan Oetgen

"It is rare for me to have large amounts of time to focus exclusively on new concepts and materials in complete, undisrupted, isolation. Soaring Gardens gave me this opportunity and my work has flourished because of it. I was able to accomplish the specific goals that I had set to achieve (working with stop motion animation to create short experimental pieces) as well as find valuable time to draw." ----EJ Herczyk

“We also enjoyed meeting the resident at the church, Paul, and even arranged a reading one evening. The members of my writing group have already read the longest of the three essays I wrote this June, and several seconded the comment of one: "This essay has convinced me of the power of residencies." I feel the compliment is yours.” ----Kendra Greene

“I was fortunate enough to be awarded a three week residency at the Church. It was one of the most powerful experiences of my life. I had never spent that much time in almost total isolation, just focusing on painting. My days quickly dissolved into what for awhile seemed like an endless continuum of creation, punctuated ever so slightly by a simple meal and sleep.” ----John Adams

"The residency yielded not only a new body of work, but also lent clarity to our individual practices and revealed a model for thinking, making and working in an environment of mutual respect. During that time our separate art-making methods–indeed our identities–were fused into something new that has become a meditation on the act of exchange, artistic process, and conversation." ----Kate McGraw & Ann Tarantino
