STONELEAF RETREAT is situated on 20 acres in the Catskill Mountains, just two hours north of New York City. Founded in 2017 by husband and wife, Eric Romano and Helen Toomer, STONELEAF is a warm and welcoming place for people to connect and collaborate. As an extension of the retreat, STONELEAF RESIDENCY provides a home for artists, for short, but immersive, periods of time.

The inaugural STONELEAF RESIDENCY took place August 19 - September 3, 2017 and culminated with the STONELEAF SUMMER FÊTE on Saturday, September 2, 2017.  The first artists to take part in the residency were LEAH DIXON, MACON REED and MIA TAYLOR.
