Artrider has also demonstrated a longstanding commitment to the craft and arts communities, raising thousands of dollars for CERF+ (Craft Emergency Relief Fund + Artists' Emergency Resources), the Guilford Art Center, the Westport Young Woman's League and more than $3 million for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Artrider produces Crafts at Lyndhurst, Crafts at Purchase, CraftMorristown and CraftWestport, and will premiere the Hudson Valley Arts Festival at Rhinebeck in October 2013.
Our goal is to provide marketplaces for craft and visual artists to exhibit and sell their work in a supportive and stimulating environment, while providing a positive cultural opportunity and community strengthening experience for the public.
Every year we help hundreds of craft artists to earn a living. At the same time we raise funds for important non-profit cultural organizations and introduce tens of thousands of people to their programs.
Stacey Jarit, Artrider director and founder, served on the executive board of CERF+ for seven years. She recently served two terms on the board of the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, the country's longest continually running arts colony. Stacey has curated exhibitions at the New York State Museum and the Schenectady Museum and is currently on the Woodstock School of Art Advisory Board.
“Since their first show at the 14th Street Armory in New York City (in 1982), Stacey Jarit and Jeff Sobel have forged a reputation within the industry for producing retail shows featuring quality work from some of the best artists in the country.”
“Artrider is the only promoter to have five shows on my list. That’s more than any other organization including the American Craft Council (ACC). That’s tremendous!”
