Welcome to the Bethany Arts Community (BAC) in Ossining, New York

Founder’s Welcome I had a vision of creating a community of artists that not only interacts with each other but with the community as a whole, locally and globally. BAC is a place where the established artist can tap into the potential that resides within, the new artist can continue to find their creative voice and the beginner (including the “I am not an artist”) can learn and grow. BAC is a place where all levels of artists can gather to help each other and each other’s art flourish. It is exciting to have you here and we are looking forward to enhancing the creative process. Thank you for joining us. – David Lyons

Resident Artist Feedback

“We were thrilled to be the first company in residence at Bethany Arts Community this past May! When the company is able to disconnect from their every day lives and just be in the room together, working, creating, that is when inspiration is found. Our gracious hosts at Bethany took care to make sure we had that space in a beautiful environment with amazing food and a welcoming community that nourished our bodies and souls. Thank you all! We hope this is the beginning of a long journey together.”

Kyle Maude

Director of Producing and Touring, Bill t. Jones/Arnie Zane Company

“From exploring the trails to writing in the solarium or singing in the former chapel, we felt inspired, productive, and very well taken care of during our time at Bethany Arts Community. The BAC team has created a nurturing and dynamic place that, we discovered, was an ideal home for our collaborative writing process. Our in-progress reading of excerpts from The Village of Vale, along with our conversations with local audience members, helped us focus and clarify our ongoing work on the show. We’re grateful, and we hope we get to come back soon!”

Jonathan Karpinos

Playwright and Teacher, The Village of Vale

“Arts and artists have a way of raising up a community to its highest potential. Bethany arriving in Ossining is a game changer for an already artistic community. Not only will Bethany serve as inspiration, but also as an art making home to so many artists at so many points in their artistic lives. I can’t wait to see the conversations, collaborations and artistic growth that Bethany will be home to. And I am delighted that Bethany chose Ossining as its home.”

Jessica Irons

Artistic Director, Theater O

“Thanks to everyone at BAC for making our show in January such a sold-out success! Even weeks later, we’re still getting raves about the beautiful chapel performance space. The central location and easy parking made it easier to attract an audience from a larger region. And BAC’s staff could not have been more supportive of our production- from accommodating quirky set up requirements to helping the show run smoothly. We can’t wait for the next opportunity to return. On behalf of our staff, performers and audience- thank you, thank you, thank you!”
