“When I talk with other artists who have been blessed with the same opportunity to reside at Hewnoaks, we all seem to say the same thing: Our residencies there gave us that time we needed to work without interruption, without the chaos of home/work-life pulling us in so many directions.”
Magnificently situated on the eastern shore of Kezar Lake, Hewnoaks offers an extraordinary setting of inspiration and beauty. By resurrecting its art-making traditions we aim to honor its creative history and preserve its environmental integrity.
Adventurous artists and thinkers are invited to live and work at Hewnoaks from late June until mid-September each year. Residencies run from one to two weeks, depending on availability. Participants are accommodated in rustic cabins complete with basic kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms.
Hewnoaks does not provide designated studio spaces. Residents must bring their own supplies and set up their studios within their cabins. Previous residents have been resourceful in working out the details of living and working in the same space.
Participants are responsible for their own transportation. Food and other basic necessities are available at nearby stores. The property is about 90 minutes northwest of Portland.
Hewnoaks encourages artists and curators of all backgrounds to apply. Hewnoaks does not discriminate in its programs and activities against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, ancestry, HIV status, or veteran status.
