Applications for residency at the Hewnoaks Artist Colony on Lake Kezar at Center Lovell are open and will be accepted through March 8, 2015.
This will be the third year of the residency, which gives artists a chance to spend one to three weeks concentrating on their work. The residencies are available for artists in many disciplines, including visual, literary and performing arts. They run June 27 through Sept. 19.
The colony operates on a farm once owned by American artist Douglas Volk. When his last remaining heir died in 2004, she left it to the University of Maine Foundation and asked that it be used as a retreat for artists.
In addition to a large farmhouse, there are five small cabins on the lake. Four of those cabins are available for the residency.
The residency is supported by the Quimby Family Foundation and the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation.
