Seguinland Institute is located on a 60-acre peninsula in the coastal woodlands of Georgetown, Maine.
Georgetown, Maine is a village with a rich history of maritime traditions, artist retreats, and back to the land living. The influential band of artists who inhabited this small town in the 20th Century—including Marsden Hartley, Paul Strand, F. Holland Day, Marguerite Zorach and Gaston Lachaise—are referred to as artists of the “Seguinland”. Georgetown is home to Reid State Park, with its miles of beaches, hiking trails, and granite outcroppings stretching out into the Atlantic.
Facilities & Accommodations
We are housed at the site of a 1970s back to the land homestead. Our space includes organic gardens, a bend in the river, a small boatyard, a woodworking shop, 8 cottages, 3 tree dwellings, and a gathering space 20 feet up among the pines. We’ve also got a cave, a fire pit, and a watering hole - lest we drift too far from the primal contexts of human gathering, conversation, contemplation, and belonging. Finally, we’ve got a wood-fired cedar hot tub 18’ up in the trees. Forest bathing extraordinaire.
