A MIM brushes at Sladeville cottages-1

On Saturday, April 27th, from 2-4 pm, the Art Lovers Book Club will be discussing artist colonies – gathering places where artists can go to live, work, and interact with like-minded individuals. These special places nurture the creative spirit. 


The event will launch with a presentation from artist Jane Lincoln, representing 21 in Truro, a group of women artists who annually convene in Truro, MA for a week of retreat, companionship and extensive art-making.


Jane Lincoln has had over thirty solo exhibitions and exhibited at over fifty museums and galleries. She has received over one hundred awards. Jane is listed in Art in America Guide and Who’s Who in American Art. She is featured in volume thirty-two of Studio Visit, 2015. Her work is featured in the book Contemporary Cape Cod Artists: On Abstraction by Deborah Forman, 2015. She is also featured in Cape Cod Arts 2018.


21 in Truro’s focused retreats allow the artists to express their individual responses to the natural beauty of the Outer Cape. During this time, dedicated to joy and ease, they support one another in meeting the challenges of leading a creative life.
