Whether your medium is painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, or a fusion of several media, this is an opportunity to have an art-making retreat in nature. Stay in Lake Logan’s charming cabins and spend your days making art outside in a landscape that has a multitude of features; the lake, a lily pond, the Pigeon River, and many secluded wooded areas.

The retreat will be hosted by Norma Hendrix: “As the former director of Cullowhee Arts I have had the great privilege of creating and hosting artist retreats and workshops at Lake Logan since 2013. Lake Logan and its staff are like family to me, and I know first-hand how inspiring the beauty and serenity found there can be transformative in furthering one’s creative work Waking in the morning to the ever-changing light on the water is enough to set the mood for the day. The absence of wifi and internet in the cabins invites one to pause and be fully present.” (Both are available at all times in and around the Dining Hall and Main Lodge.)

“Our goals will be self-directed, yet within a community of and interaction with other artists.”

The Tuesday evening, Lake Logan will host a wine reception for participants along with invited Lake Logan supporters. We will exhibit our works for one another and to the Lake Logan guests. Lake Logan is a non-profit organization and has been hit hard by the fall-out of the pandemic. Each participant will have the opportunity to donate a small piece of work, executed during our event, for a silent auction at the reception/exhibition.

Meals from dinner Wednesday through lunch Friday are included in your registration. Meals can be served in the dining hall, and takeout will be available for those more comfortable eating outside or in their cabins.

Day and overnight options are available, and you may register a non-participating guest as well.
