Green Kill is a unique and valuable center for the Arts in the Kingston Area. The very strong poetry community that has coalesced there supports young and new poets and hosts some very seasoned and accomplished ones. It is a place where one can try out new material, new ideas and new modes of expression. There is live music, experimental theater, visual art, and poetry. Clearly this is an artists’ art space and a unique addition to the community.

—Gary Siegel LCSW – Poet

David Schell, a life-long artist, with his partner Yuriko Sasamoto, moved to Kingston, New York with a dream: to bring a new kind of arts space to the Hudson Valley. Now 3 years old, Green Kill is exactly that. 

Welcome to Green Kill, a multi-use space for writers, performers, and visual artists. 

Green Kill serves student, outsider and established artists with a life-long dedication to their work, and an original vision. 

Green Kill has a unique, artist driven, peer-to-peer approach to growth. Peer-to-peer is the voluntary willingness of artists to refer and recommend artists to participate in Green Kill. The reward for the Green Kill community and each participating artist is the growth of Green Kill’s reputation as a destination for diverse, quality art.

This is a new approach to supporting the arts, an inclusive model made possible through the partnership of Green Kill LLC and a national fiscal sponsor for the arts, Fractured Atlas.*

Green Kill’s diversity is demonstrated throughout its programs, including the monthly art exhibition, Voice Less Readings, Showcase, Mashup, Emerging Artist Program, Mozart’s Living Room, Kingston Experimental Theater Company, The Film Program, BYOB Karaoke, and  a very broad range of special events. 

Before reaching out for community support, Green Kill needed to establish a proof-of-concept. If you have attended any of our events or have visited our website,, then you know what we have accomplished in just three short years. Now Green Kill needs your help to bring it to the next stage in its evolution. A vibrant art scene is emblematic of a thriving community. Please support us. Green Kill is honored to introduce our programs and our funding details.

Art Exhibition Program



Green Kill is extraordinary in that any committed artist, musician, or performer from the  Kingston area and the Hudson Valley need only walk through the Green Kill door to be included as a member of the Green Kill community. If you have artwork to show or a creative idea then bring it in! The range of Green Kill art exhibitions, music, theater, performance and other programs made available by Green Kill to Kingston and the Hudson Valley is unsurpassed.

—Lynne Stone, Artist

The Art Exhibition Program 

Monthly shows of five artists are presented in the gallery. In the White Room, participating artists have a year-round opportunity to offer their works to art lovers with tighter budgets.

Performance Programs

Everyone at Green Kill works tirelessly to create a safe, enjoyable, and highly professional environment. I love how Green Kill’s vision is centered around the concept of bringing musicians, and artists together toward filling the gap between the disciplines by growing a creative community that creates artistic opportunities. 

It’s unusual to be inspired by the art and by the conversation with other fellow artists that are presents during the events. 

Green kill is a space where artists are free to share ideas that will eventually become future projects or collaborations.”

—Federico Balducci, Musica and Composer

Literary Programs

Green Kill was the perfect, intimate theater to produce my plays in. I was assisted in every possible way, both technical and personal, to make my work come alive on the stage. I would advise any aspiring playwright, musician, or spoken word artist to bring their best work to the Green Kill, a truly first rate and welcoming venue.

—Mark Morganstern, Playwright and novelist.
