Illustration Institute

talks + workshops

Our 2018 programming series has concluded and we have all of you to thank for a year of success! Artists, illustrators, writers and musicians came to Peaks Island to create. They embraced the serenity, beauty and community that is the quintessential Coast of Maine experience. 

Through the Faison Artist Residency, our guest artists shared their vision, process, talent and time. They took full advantage of the residency, finishing projects and creating new ones.  As a community of curious and kind participants, you showed them genuine hospitality. Your interest and enthusiasm for them and their work spoke volumes.

Our Garth Williams exhibit in collaboration with the Curtis Memorial Library and the 16 artist events on Peaks and in Portland has left us inspired and energized to plan ahead for next year!  We thank you for your attention, excitement and generosity of spirit. 

As we tuck in the cottages at the residency for the winter, we are actively planning our programs and exhibits for the new year...we'll keep you posted right here. Have a cozy fall...
