In the summer of 2016 the Association revived a tradition that began in the 1930s hosting working artists in Buck Hill. Advantages to artists in this environment are time and space to work outside the pressures of other obligations.
Thomas Riesing and his wife Marcia Goldenstein, emeritus faculty at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, spent the last two weeks of July in Buck Hill as guests of the Association gathering material for future work. Riesing’s silverpoint drawings of Jenkins Woods were the subject of an exhibition in Knoxville, TN this pasts winter.
The program will continue this summer.
