“Ragdale opened up for me the mystery of the creative process and the devotion to craft. On
the surface, Ragdale is an artists’ residency. Underneath, it is so much more. Ragdale is an incubator for creativity that reaches across a broad swath
of artists, whether they are professionals, students, teachers, or business men
and women.”

—Grove Mower, Ragdale Trustee
