"Trees!" A Dorland Art Exhibit

Dorland Mountain Arts Colony was founded in 1979 by concert pianist, Ellen Dorland and environmentalist, Barbara Horton. Individual cottages provide studio and living facilities within the Dorland Preserve, a 300-acre wilderness area acquired with the help of The Nature Conservancy. Dorland Mountain Arts Colony is a nonprofit organization. Its purpose is to deepen the quality of the creative process, enabling its residents to explore their own creative resources without distraction. Residency Applications are reviewed monthly.
