Everwood Farmstead Foundation hosts inspiring spaces where artists can perform, teach and work in a natural environment.

Everwood was so excited to reopen our barn doors this summer and we are grateful to our generous donors for making it happen. Our 9th season of the Artist Series featured PaviElle, Carrie Elkin, Her Crooked Heart, Erik Koskinen and David Huckfelt just concluded. This season’s Artist Workshops focused on floral design, plein air painting and family memoirs. In addition, sixteen artists were selected for the 2021 Artist Retreat. Each of these incredible artists spent one week at Everwood to advance a creative project. You can hear stories from artists on retreat in our podcast, Conversations from the Barn. And you can learn more about all of our pursuits at www.everwoodfarmsteadfoundation.org. 

Each of us will take different lessons from the past year. At Everwood, we were repeatedly reminded about the important role of artists. Their job is to find fresh language for the human experience. When conversations fail, when communities and families divide, when we feel disconnected, it's possible that just the right poem, play, song or painting will make a difference. They remind us of our humanity, spark empathy and help us see another side. That is why we do what we do. And we are so grateful that you help us make it happen.

“In the most unsteady time of my life, you gave me the place to reorient my entire self. This new play has Everwood’s fingerprints all over it.” – James Kennedy (New York), Artist Retreat 2020

 “This place is a well – sourced by a deep spring of connectedness, aliveness and beauty. You can simply be here. Create here. Find flow here. As an artist, this is what you need and long for.” – Kate Sutton Johnson (Minnesota), Artist Retreat 2020

As we prepare for our 10th anniversary season, we are reminded of all the generous support that brought Everwood to this milestone. Together we strengthen communities through the power of art. And, we have exciting plans to expand this work over the next decade. If Give to the Max is when you financially support the organizations you feel align with your values, we hope you'll consider Everwood Farmstead Foundation.
