Flashback Friday - Episode 75, The Art Tent

In the spring of 2010, the artist Hunter Reynolds came to Easton Mountain and set up a steel-framed tent on the High Meadow as an art studio both for himself and for those who would be part of the summer camps that year.

Drawings and sketches covered the east wall of the tent,


At first the tent just had canvas sides, but later hunter added framed plate glass, probably originally intended as sliding doors.  He also put a hinged door on the south end of the tent, and a small wood-stove inside.  With this arrangement he could use the tent in all but the coldest months of winter.

The tent was used for five summers. During the severe winter of 2014-15, it collapsed under the weight of snow and ice.  In the spring of 2014 a barn that had been used for goats was converted into The Pavilion of Imagination - a place for everyone to explore their creative vision.

If you come tp one of our camps this summer, like Gay Freedom Camp or Gay Spirit Camp, please check out the Pavilion of Imagination, and the opportunities to create visual art that you will find there.
