Hewnoaks gives artists time and space to create within a natural, rustic environment.
In these urgent times, we support the work of artists who help us imagine new futures. Every one of the artists that came to Hewnoaks this summer brought their own unique intelligence about the world and a tangible desire to perceive it more fully.
As we prepare for another season next summer, we are also thinking about the long-term goals for our program and how to continue our strong tradition of creative thinking on the shore of Kezar Lake.
“No matter how well appointed a home studio is, or how much time is allotted for work, there is nothing that compares to the particular freedom of a residency. To think, and re-think, explore, and imagine a life outside and away from life at home is inevitably generative and a little wild. Only good can come of it.”
