Pine Meadow Ranch is engagement with a historic working ranch and a small Western community. Artists and makers wanting to explore connections to the landscape, conservation, historic preservation, agriculture and the local area community are invited to Pine Meadow Ranch in Sisters, Oregon.
The vision of Pine Meadow Ranch is to connect agriculture, conservation, arts and sciences with traditional and contemporary crafts and skills integral to ranching life including: metal, glass, wood and leather work, ceramics, fibers and textiles, writing, painting and drawing, photography, film and music.
Today, Pine Meadow Ranch continues to operate as a working ranch and is developing and expanding arts, agricultural and ecological projects from the assets of the property. Our goal is to preserve the land, the views, and historic buildings of Pine Meadow Ranch for years to come.
Residents are asked to contribute to the Ranch or the community by helping on the Ranch and/or by presenting a workshop or artists talk in the community. At the same time, artists are given time and space for their own artistic practice.
In 2018, Pine Meadow Ranch hosted trial residencies by inviting eight artists for two-week stays. In 2019, Pine Meadow Ranch moved into its pilot year with more engagement opportunities for residents on the ranch and in the local area community (click here for a list of previous residents).
Currently, two residents will be accommodated at a time for two to four-week residencies from mid-March to mid-November (click here for COVID-19 updates). Residents will be provided studio space in one of the Ranch buildings and a private room with a shared bath in the Headquarters. The Headquarters also houses the business office, a shared kitchen, dining and laundry. As buildings are remodeled, Pine Meadow Ranch will be able to accommodate different abled artists and professionals.
Applications for the 2020/2021 artist-in-residence program were due in December 2019. Successful applicants have been notified. For more information, please email inquiries@
Applications for day use of studio space for local area artists will open by inquiry only. Studio space will be available for 4-6 artists throughout the year. Artists within a 60-minute drive from Pine Meadow Ranch are considered local area artists. If you are interested in being notified when this application opens, please email inquiries@
*Because stipends are provided to offset living and travel expenses for out of town artists, stipends are not provided to local area artists.
