The MacDowell Colony is saddened by the death of our dear friend, George Nicholson. The board of directors, staff, and Fellows of MacDowell send our deepest condolences to George's son Nick, and to their wide community of family and friends. George cared deeply for MacDowell, serving brilliantly on the Colony's board and committees for 24 years, lending his wisdom, grace and energy to all matters. A friend to authors and artists everywhere, George's passion for the arts and MacDowell will be sorely missed.
