“HOW ART IS MADE IN THE CATSKILLS is as much a treasure of these mountains as the artists profiled here. Ms. David has an extraordinary commitment to the Catskill region. As President of Writers in the Mountains (WIM), she has helped create a community for artists to gather, while drawing in new writers of every sort through WIM’s offerings of outstanding writing courses. Simona David herself is a true treasure of the Catskill Mountains.”

Leslie T. Sharpe, Writer

“By embedding herself in the studios and workshops where artists create in the Catskills, Simona David lends us rare insight into how their original perspectives are re-shaping our rural neighborhoods for the better.”

Bradley Diuguid, Executive Director, Catskill Art Society
