Catamount Outback Artspace

In 2012, Catamount Arts embarked on an ambitious education program and began to think about expanding its space to accommodate our plans. The owner of the octagon-shaped building behind the Catamount Arts Center, then known as the Carriage House, offered to lease the space to Catamount Arts, and we jumped at the opportunity to offer programming in the unique space as well as office space for our education staff.

Catamount Outback Artspace is now home to many of Catamount Arts’ classes, workshops, and arts camps. It is also the home of Open Mic St. Jay, a weekly entertainment venue run by local high school and college students. In addition, there is space for rehearsing music and recording, as well as for student projects such as a record label, art galleries, and band concerts. Space is available for rental for concerts, music lessons, community organization meetings, and more.

Catamount Arts' programs for middle and high school students are possible in large part to the generosity of the Canaday Family Charitable Trust. Many thanks also to Paul Kitchel for her support of Open Mic St. Jay.
