Grand Marais Art Colony invites painters and photographers for Winter Arts Festival.

Winter Arts Festival 
Retreat - Jan. 26 - Feb 1, Exhibit - Feb. 1 - 24

Join other photographers and painters on a northern retreat to capture the glory of winter in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.  Get your creative juices flowing as you are inspired by the serene winter landscape and community of artists. 

Participants stay at Camp Menogyn ($40/night including 3 hot meals/day & unlimited coffee & tea!) for as many days as fits your schedule. 

Activities are up to the participant - skiing, snowshoeing, dogsledding, sauna, ping-pong, art critique are all optional.  Days are generally spent taking pictures or painting, evenings around the wood stove playing games and connecting with other artists.

The retreat culminates in an exhibit of artwork at the Grand Marais Art Colony during the month of February.

Organized by the Grand Marais Art Colony.  For more information contact 218-387-2737 or
