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.

Caldera’s Artists in Residence program is supported by The Oregon Cultural Trust, The Ford Family Foundation, The Oregon Community Foundation, and many generous individual donors.
Caldera is honored to announce the 21 dynamic and diverse artists from around the country who will be participating in our 16th group of Artists in Residence (AiR). These artists will each be spending a month this winter (January, February, and March) creating, living, collaborating, performing, and teaching at our Arts Center near Sisters, Oregon.
Residencies are awarded based on a competitive application process that is 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 landscape different than their home environment. In 2018, residents will create new works in Japanese drumming, sculpture, dance, graphic non-fiction, fiber arts, jazz, poetry, film, and many other genres.
In addition to their personal artistic practice, Artists in Residence are integrated into Caldera’s year-round Youth Program by teaching workshops to high school students in Central Oregon. AiR will also teach free public writing workshops through a partnership with Deschutes Public Library. Workshops for the public will include comics, devotional writing, and using humor in fiction. Details and registration information will be available soon on Caldera’s website.
Maesie Speer, Arts Center Programs Manager, says, “This group of artists brings a diversity of perspectives, experiences and artistic practices to Central Oregon. One of our values at Caldera is lifelong learning, and we are happy to partner with other organizations to connect these creative individuals with the public through workshops and our Open Studios events. If you’ve never been to our Arts Center, Open Studios are a great opportunity to visit and engage with artists making vital, contemporary work.”
Doors to the Arts Center (31500 Blue Lake Dr., Sisters) open to the public for Caldera’s Artists in Residence Open Studios on January 27, February 24, and March 24 from 12:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m. AiR, as well as Caldera students, share their work with the public through presentations and performances. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
Caldera’s AiR Program is also one of the few in the nation that supports parent artists by allowing children and an additional caretaker to accompany an Artist in Residence during their stay. Caldera Programs Director Elizabeth Quinn notes that, “This year, there will be a record number of parent artists. As a nonprofit committed to the development of young people, the support of parent artists is a natural and powerful extension of our work.” Quinn also notes that, “It’s critical that our programs are as accessible as possible to all artists and supportive of their families. We can’t wait to welcome six families in 2018!”
