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. The Board of Hewnoaks continues to monitor the evolving public health situation in Maine and will make an announcement on the viability of the 2021 season in late winter. We will not accept new applications till February 2022.
