Hewnoaks Artist Colony

2013 Hewnoaks

Here is an attractive opportunity for all Maine artists! Historic Hewnoaks on the eastern shore of Kezar Lake is offering free residences to those who would like to work in a historic setting. Although there is not a designated studio, there is space in each cabin or even on the grounds.

This Artist Colony is a volunteer effort and had a quiet start last year when a writer, a filmmaker and others participated. This year, the group is expanding the time period from June 29th to mid-September. There is an application process and the deadline is May 22nd. More details can be found at hewnoaks.org.

Since the late 1800's, the sleepy little town has always been a magnet for a variety of artists. Whether attracted by the lake, the mountains or the ability to regenerate their creativity with fresh air, Lovell remains a vibrant artistic center. One of the group's stated goals is for the artists to interact with the local community. Since my artistic ability is limited, I look forward to welcoming our guests and hopefully seeing their finished projects. After their initial visit to Lovell, I'm sure they will be eager to return!
