Registrations will not be complete until payment is submitted. Artists interested in using a different method than online checkout, please contact CRPA Executive Assistant, Lynne Griffith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested artists are encouraged to become a member of the CRPA ($25 membership fee) and apply for the retreat at a reduced rate. Membership offers annual social events, group hikes, field and float trips, a subscription to the quarterly newsletter, and waterway explorations. The Cowpasture River, being one of the two tributaries forming the James River, is an important Virginia resource and our members are dedicated to protecting it.
Application Deadline: February 27, 2023
Three different payment options are available for applicants:
- Artists Application Fee: $135
- Application Fee for Current CRPA Members: $95 (must have paid 2023 membership dues)
- EVENT SPECIAL – Application Fee & 1 Year CRPA Membership for New or Renewing Members: $120
Application fee covers permission to work on private property at Fort Lewis Lodge & Farm, access to Lodge facilities, Monday lunch, Tuesday lunch, and nightly social hour with beer and wine.
The application process will close once the maximum number of participating artists is reached. Applications will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Artists may request to be added to a waiting list. The application fee is refundable until 30 days prior to the event.
Artists will receive more details via email in early March.
