The Roundhouse Foundation, in an effort to further its support for the arts and artists in Sisters and Central Oregon, invited a group of artists to experience artist in residency programming at Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts, Penland School of
Crafts, Sedona Arts Center, Maine Media and Sitka Center for Art and Ecology.
While attending workshops, the artists were asked to observe the different
learning models and whether it would be feasible to have similar programs in Sisters. The focus of the research was, broadly, artist-in-residence, workshop, and shared-space programs. Six local artists attended a variety of programs on behalf of the project.
Participating artists are: Dawn Emerson, June Jaeger, Ingrid Lustig, Carolyn Platt, Ryder Redfield, and Hannah Tenneson. The exhibit “Sisters on the Road” showcases their work while participating in the research, workshops and residencies and features works in print making, photography, ceramic, painting and mixed media.
The exhibit is open weekdays.
The community is also invited to the artist reception February 8th beginning at 4:30 p.m. A panel discussion at 6 p.m. will feature the artists sharing information about their experiences. The Roundhouse Foundation will also share information about the purchase of Pine Meadow Ranch and the ongoing progress in restoring this historic property, continuing the long history of agriculture and the role this property will play in the creative community of Sisters.
Experience the exhibit and celebrate creative Sisters with us! Refreshments will be served.
