Supporting Hewnoaks Artist Colony supports our mission to promote and encourage the development of emerging and mid-career artists of all kinds, including – painters, printmakers, sculptors, writers, musicians, filmmakers, actors, composers and choreographers – by providing an exquisite natural environment in which to consider, imagine and create.

Your generosity allows us to continue to provide free residencies to 40 – 50 artists a season and to care for and update our historic buildings so we may better meet the evolving needs of  our artists. Please consider a donation. We deeply appreciate any and all contributions. Thank you very much in advance.
