Caldera announces 23 artists who have been selected for residencies in winter 2019. These artists will spend up to a month at the Caldera Arts Center near Sisters, Oregon. “Caldera is honored to announce three dynamic and diverse groups of Artists in Residence who will be creating, living, presenting, and teaching this winter at our Arts Center,” said Executive Director Brian Detman.
Every winter, Caldera welcomes artists from around the country accepted to the AiR Program for month-long stays at the Arts Center. Residencies are awarded based on a competitive application process open to artists from all disciplines. For many artists, residencies are a vital part of the artistic process, giving them time and space to focus, untethered by daily distractions, in a community of artists who can enhance reflection and energize new work in unexpected ways, while surrounded by a different landscape than their home environments. In 2019, residents will create new works in theatre, sculpture, nonfiction, dance, poetry, film, and many other genres.
While in residence, these artists will also offer workshop to students in Caldera’s Youth Program as well as to the public. More information on public workshops will be available in November.
Doors to the Arts Center (31500 Blue Lake Dr., Sisters) will open to the public for Caldera’s Artists in Residence Open Studios on January 26, February 23, and March 23 from 12:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m. Artists in Residence, as well as Caldera students, share their work with the public through presentations and performances. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
Applications for 2020 residencies will be open in January 2019.
