our WILD PLACES
OUR RESIDENCY LOCALES BRING YOU TO THE WILDS OF...
THEANO POINT, LAKE SUPERIOr
A pristinely wild and remote 300 acre peninsula of privately owned Lake Superior shoreline, beaches, bluffs, and forests. Theano Point is adjacent to Lake Superior Provincial Park and is located in Ontario’s Algoma region, famously painted by The Group of Seven painters. Theano Point is a one hour drive or shuttle from Sault Ste. Marie Airport and the Michigan U.S.A. border. The incredibly dramatic topographic diversity of Theano Point is set against the coastal climate of an “inland sea” on the second largest fresh water lake on the planet. This private natural kingdom provides artists with unparalleled exclusive access to create and be in the wild.
NEW WORLD ISLAND, NEWFOUNDLAND
An ocean-front off-grid salt-box cabin on New World Island, Newfoundland, Canada, brings artists, writers, and researches to Newfoundland’s fabled North shore. Traditional fishing villages and wild coastal cliffs are the jumping off point to adventures in Gros Morne National Park or the Avalon Peninsula. Situated between Fogo Island and Twilingate Island, New World Island offers artists a rural experience of solitude within close proximity to fantastical Fogo via the Ferry at Farewell, the causeway to charming Twilingate in 20 minutes, or a 60 minute drive to Gander airport.
THE WILD MILL STUDIOS, ONTARIO
A recently restored century mill, schoolhouse, and general store provides historic live-work space. Our modular art studios and living spaces in a picturesque and historic hamlet on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO world biosphere reserve, are located halfway between Lake Ontario and Georgian Bay. Artists enjoy professional studio spaces and comfortable ammenities just steps from the wilds of the Pine River Valley and the Bruce Trail. The Wild Mill Studios are a 90 minute drive from Pearson International Airport and provincial capital city Toronto, but a world away in the heart of a rural paradise.
