Fall Artists’ Retreat 2018

KNLT held our annual artists’ retreat last fall on Pine Mountain. The retreat brought together an eclectic group of artists with different disciplines from various geographies to engage them in our Pine Mountain Wildlands Corridor project. KNLT held the retreat at the Pine Mountain Settlement School and took attendees on a hike at Bad Branch State Nature Preserve near Whitesburg. Since 2015 we have hosted over 125 artists on retreats. These artists are now part of the Pine Mountain Collective.

The fall retreat was made possible with funding from Snowy Owl Foundation.
