A Letter from the Executive Director

Welcome to the 45th Year of Castle Hill!

I am so excited to start this 45th year of Castle Hill with the purchase of Edgewood Farm! This has been a work in progress for almost 3 years beginning with a vision committee, to a feasibility study, to a 5 year strategic plan. We redesigned our logo, created a new website, we raised all the money for this purchase with no debt! We could not have done this without the help of the Castle Hill Board and the amazing community of artists that we serve.

We now have our work cut out for us. To grow, to create an artist in residency program, to build a net-zero “green” printmaking studio, to maintain 5 beautiful buildings on 7 acres of land, to bring the “farm” back to Edgewood Farm will take community support and effort.

This is an incredible time for this organization! As we grow, as we look to the future, I can’t help but thank Joyce Johnson (the founder).  Her vision and her spirit that has brought Castle Hill together, starting with a committed group of artists to save an old barn! And I feel like we have just done it again 45 years later!! Please consider getting involved!

Take a look at this catalog! We have an incredible line up of teachers and we continue to serve the mission of what we do best. I look forward to breaking bread and popping some champagne this Spring and Summer with each and every one of you!

With warm regards, 

Cherie Mittenthal
