Artist Residency

Artist Residency

Situated on the eastern shore of Kezar Lake in Lovell, Maine, Hewnoaks offers an extraordinary setting of inspiration and beauty.  We encourage applications from emerging and mid-career artists and curators in all disciplines, especially for people with no or little residency experience. Maine artists are given preference, but anyone is welcome to apply.

Hewnoaks invites participants for one or two week sessions from mid June until early October each year and offers self-catered accommodation in rustic cabins complete with basic kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms.

Due to COVID, the 2020 residency program was suspended and we will host only Maine-based deferred 2020 artists in our 2021 season. We are currently in conversation about our plans for the 2022 season and will update the community towards the end of 2021.
