Twiggs Gallery invites poets and plein-air painters to participate in an inspiring full-day retreat at Eagle Pond Farm in Wilmot, NH, where Donald Hall and Jane Kenyon shared a writing life. They were daily informed by the farm, its memories, and a deep sense of place and connection to this land and landscape sheltered by Kearsarge and Ragged Mountains.

This unique opportunity is limited to 6 poets and 6 artists. Deadline to register is Sept. 1. Cost and registration info is below. Please address all questions to:  Twiggs Gallery Director Laura Morrison at,

The day offers a unique opportunity to create in the same space where Don and Jane lived and worked. Mary Lyn Ray, children’s book author, historian, and preservationist will give a behind-the-scenes tour of the house. Also a close friend and neighbor of Don and Jane, Mary Lyn is a founder of At Eagle Pond, Inc., the nonprofit preserving the Wilmot farm.
