Art, Food, and Farming: Meet the Resident Internship Recipients


This evening's conversation will be with our farm, studio, and culinary resident interns.  Come meet Katharine, Lizzie and Emma and hear about their residencies and research.  Each brings unique skills and perspective to our program along with a strong desire to collaborate with and learn from our Adirondack community.  

Katharine Wyatt was born and raised in Sonoma County, California. After earning her B.S. in Communication from the University of Miami in 2013, she moved to New York City where a “temporary" restaurant job ultimately swayed her to shift her career focus to food. 

Lizzie Wilford hails from the eastern shore of Maryland, bringing with her a love of food, farming, the arts and community building. She graduated from Dickinson College in 2016 with a bachelor of Arts and has spent the last year doing education and outreach for the Dickinson College Farm. At Craigardan she is excited to pursue her love of food, farming and ceramics as well as continuing to expand her skills set. 

Emma Silverstein was raised in Connecticut and received her BFA in ceramics from Syracuse University. She has studied in India and China, worked as a beekeeper, and taught dance, ceramics and weaving. As a Resident Intern at Craigardan, Emma will be managing the ceramics studio while maintaining her own studio practice in clay and fibers. She hopes to foster community-based skill sharing this summer and in the future. 

Join us in the Applebarn on Fridays for artist talks, guest lectures, residency presentations, roundtable discussions and engaging conversations on art, ecology, food, philosophy and more!
