Green Hill Artist Retreat was founded by pianist and composer, Gary Schmidt, residency coordinator and visual artist and choreographer, Erika Schmidt, curator. As working artists, they relocated to Vermont in 2008 to continue their artistic endeavors while developing their property into a comfortable place for other artists seeking solace and the benefits of working in an environment surrounded by nature. Erika and Gary work individually and collaboratively in multidisciplinary performance that integrates dance, physical theater, sound scape, kinetic sculpture and film. Green Hill Artist Retreat support artists working in traditional and experimental mediums and heartily support artists that come to work in solitude as well as those that enjoy dialogue that promote the sharing and exchange of ideas that emerge when a small group of artists come together.
