Events featuring current and past Holly House resident artists are free to the public as part of Hypatia’s effort to enrich the cultural life of the local community while supporting women in the arts and academia with unrestricted time to complete their projects at Holly House in solo residencies.


Ardea Thurston-Shaine, our current artist-in-residence, will display her work and talk about it at the Shelton Timberland Library at 710 Alder St. on Wednesday, March 1. Her program will be from 2 to 3 p.m. 
Ardea comes to us from Ontario, Canada, but she’s originally a Pacific Northwesterner and welcomes this opportunity to revive her roots here. She was born in this historic Commander’s House on the beach at Point Hudson in Port Townsend and grew up in Washington and Alaska, spending hours in the woods. 
We hope you can join us for the presentation of her evocative work and some interesting conversation.
