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.
