World-class artistic creators of all disciplines are invited to work at the Hermitage Artist Retreat with a "bank" of six weeks of time and two years to "spend" that time in any increment they choose. Our artists live and work in — and are inspired by — five "Old Florida" buildings that have been lovingly restored into living space and studio space. Fifteen miles of Gulf of Mexico beach stretch north and south and endless miles of aquamarine water reach to the western horizon where the sun sets in glory each and every night.
