Wow, What an incredibly productive two weeks amidst glorious sunny weather, brilliant scenery, and excellent company.

I appreciate the gift of time, not just the solo work hours in the studio, but the time you all spent with me on hikes, mushroom hunting excursions, and trips to other sites around here.

I can honestly say I learned quite a bit about plant life, seasons, various animals, and the moon – which has really galvanized the content and production of my work.

The Gift of Time

“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
