ACE’s Creative Economy Mixer at LUMBERYARD in Catskill featured a panel discussion with five people who have been instrumental to the Catskill renaissance: Adrienne Willis, executive and artistic director of LUMBERYARD; Liam Singer, co-founder of cafe/gallery/performance space HiLo; Karl Heck of Greene County Department of Economic Development; and Vincent Seeley, Catskill Village President. The discussion will be led by Sam Margolius, executive producer at Branch VFX, who grew up in the village and left to start a career in NY and LA, and returned to find a thriving new creative economy.
We toured LUMBERYARD’s creekside studio and facility, enjoyed food from QUESTAR III’s culinary arts program and new Atelier Restaurant and Bar, a beer from Crossroads Brewing, a cameo performance by artist Brian Dewan, and more!
