Artist & Writer Residency

Mission: Our mission is to connect artists and writers from around the world with the local community to inform, educate and empower people through art in the natural beauty of Northern Michigan.

“This is a place founded on the ideas of generosity, friendship, and a love and respect for the creative arts. This place reaffirmed my faith in humanity which I needed in these crazy political times!”

– Bill Hosterman – Artist in Residence May-June 2017

FOUNDED ON GENEROSITY, FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE

I have been able to enjoy the rare and rich gift of time to be, to rest, to take long walks, to make and to learn. This residency allows for much more than just space to work, it allows an opportunity to be slow, to look closely, enjoy the beautiful natural world, and return to the dailiness of life with a new energy and perspective
