The Thicket Residency works with artists, writers, historians, scientists, and farmers to reply to Georgia’s Low Country in their artwork, research, and critical practice. The residency is situated within thousands of acres of untouched marshlands at the convergence of two deep tidal waterways: Knox Creek and the Carneghan River.
The Thicket provides residents with time (uninterrupted, if so desired), raw studio space, private bedrooms, and a shared kitchen within a 1950’s Ranch House. Each resident has access to produce from Canewater Farms, the organic farm within which The Thicket operates. The residence overlooks huge oak trees covered in Spanish moss on the marsh that surrounds Sapelo Island, one of Georgia’s largest, deserted barrier islands.
