ABOUT THE HERMITAGE
ARTIST RETREAT
The Hermitage is a not-for-profit artist retreat located on Manasota Key in Englewood, FL. It brings mid-career painters, sculptors, writers, playwrights, poets, composers and other artists from all over the world for extended stays on its 8.5 acre campus. Each artist is asked to contribute two services to the community during their stay. So far, Hermitage artists have touched over 6,000 Sarasota County children and adults with their unique and inspiring programs. The Hermitage campus is owned by Sarasota County, maintained by the Department of Parks and Recreation and The Hermitage Artist Retreat, Inc.
