The Great ARTdoors Festival

Despite a rainy, cloudy day, on October 10, 2015, hundreds of people came to enjoy the art, artists, and autumn scenery while helping to support the center’s residency program and nature preserve. Fun was had by all with hayride tours of the artist-in-residence studios, art installations and demonstrations, plenty of live music, and fresh local food & beverages, featuring an old-fashioned pig roast. There was also an invitational show & sale of pottery and hand-made wares, U-Do-Raku (glaze your own pottery to keep), artist talks, native plant sale and activities for children of all ages. This is the only time during the year when full access is granted to our protected creative sanctuary and artist studios. The 600-acre property, lovingly cared for by Hambidge since 1934, is home to seven miles of hiking trails, waterfalls, wildflowers, a swimming hole, and a number of historic structures including a working 67 year-old water-powered gristmill. All proceeds go towards the creative residency program and nature preserve.
