Stafford Springs

1963 – A core group tackled the job of re-organizing and finding a new home for “the Colony”, as most called it. They found Stafford Springs, near Heidelberg, where workshops were held for the next seven years. With the move to Stafford in ’63, Colony became something special – one of the very few art groups managed and directed by the artists themselves. All the work involved in putting on a workshop setting dates, securing instructors and prizes, sending out notices and publicity – everything was, and still is, done by the artist-members.

Fall, 1973 – Colony came to its present “home”, Camp Henry S. Jacobs in Utica, Mississippi.
