2016 in the Garden

You are invited to step out of your day-to-day life and to be part of an artist’s retreat. This retreat asks you to recognize that the role of the artist is meaningful enough to nurture. Permit your life to revolve around your artist self. On retreat, the days are full, balancing individual studio time, group conversations, and discretionary time for additional work, relaxation or socializing. Several dinners are cooked and shared by the group and additional evenings are kept open for dining out in smaller groups. During studio time, the artists may work alone or near one another, as they prefer. Across the retreat individual conversations will be held as the instructor visits the artist in the field. The surroundings provide magical settings within which the artist may work with the subject and in the style and form that most engages them. Opportunities abound to consider the landscape, architecture, figure, still life or simply the light as a subject. Artists work in many mediums on our retreats including painting, mixed media, drawing, or sculpture. Guided conversations are held on two afternoons (Dialogues with Art) and several evenings after dinner (Artist Vision), where Dowling weaves the community of artists together with elements of story, poetry and the experiences of the day. These conversations may examine issues dealt with by artists such as: experiencing art, learning to talk about each other’s art, our role as artists in our society, accessing and recognizing our vision, special needs we have as artists, and talking about our work with others. years.

San Gimignano
Our 15th retreat will be held at a monastery in San Gimignano, a medieval Tuscan village filled with towers and surrounded by rolling hills. The Benedictine Sisters who offer their hospitality have become dear friends during our previous retreats. In San Gimignano, you will find many beautiful places to work outdoors. The monastery offers their private walled olive garden for working as well. Cafés, restaurants and shops are all within a short, if hilly, walk. The views are breathtaking and the light is magical.
