Caldera Announces 2019 Artists in Residence

Posted on: August 18th, 2018

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_Blue_Lake

Monday, August 13

5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Downtown Bend Library (601 NW Wall St, Bend)

Appetizers and drinks provided.

This is a free event. No RSVP necessary.

 

Do you need time away from distractions to finish a project? Or maybe space to rest and reflect about your creative practice? Have you wanted to apply to a residency but haven’t found the time or resources to do it? What prevents you and other artists and other creatives of color from getting into residencies?

 

For people of color, the ability to navigate the world as an artist or creative can be even more challenging due to institutional barriers and lack of visibility, resources, or recognition of the work as valuable. If you ever wanted to get into a residency and needed support in doing so, here is a chance to learn from other artists of color about Caldera’s Artists in Residence (AiR) program and more!

 

This event, organized by artists, cultural organizers, and previous Caldera residents, Luann Algoso and Patricia Vazquez, will explore what it means for people of color to take up space at artist residencies. We will hear from a panel of previous Caldera residents about their experiences going through the application process, how they spent their time during residency, and what the benefits and downsides were to attending residency. After the panel discussion, we will lead a brief workshop to share tips and suggestions to best prepare your application to Caldera and other artist residencies.

 

Panelists include:

Luann Algoso, writer and cultural worker
Jason Graham/MOWO, visual and performing artist
Sharita Towne, mixed media artist
Patricia Vazquez, mixed-media artist

 

Artists, activists, performers, musicians, designers, writers, culinary artists, and all creatives are welcome!

If you have questions about this event, please contact Maesie Speer at Maesie.Speer@CalderaArts.org.

 

This event is supported by a Community Grant from The Oregon Community Foundation.

Public Writing Workshop with AiR Leora Fridman

Devotional Writing with Leora Fridman

Saturday, March 17, 12 p.m.–2 p.m.

Sisters Library, 110 N. Cedar St.

In a time of competing crises and political chaos, it can be hard to know where to focus our attentions, how to steer our ship in a way that feels directed and clear. Our minds are so often fragmented, distracted, full of anxiety. In this evening with writer, artist, and educator Leora Fridman, we’ll talk about Devotion — a word that has fallen out of fashion but that has a lot to teach us in this time. We’ll look specifically at devotion in writing, turning to examples of contemporary experimental writers including Laynie Browne and Rachel Zucker for writing exercises that give us examples of what it means to devote ourselves, and through writing, develop practices that help us devote ourselves more broadly, as opposed to tuning out and detaching.

This workshop is free and open to the public. Register via www.deschuteslibrary.org/calendar
Presented in partnership with Deschutes Public Library.

 

Leora Fridman is a writer and educator, author of My Fault (Cleveland State University Press, 2016) in addition to five chapbooks, and is currently at work on an essay collection. A 2017 Writer in Residence at Alley Cat Books, her poems, prose and translations appear or are forthcoming in the Rumpus, Tricycle Magazine, Temporary Art Review, Open Space, Denver Quarterly, jubilat and jacket2. Leora holds degrees from the University of Massachusetts Amherst MFA Program for Poets and Writers and from Brown University, and has taught in universities, homes and community organizations across the country.

You can also hear from Leora and the other March AiR at our public Open Studios event on March 17. Click here for more info.

Public Writing Workshop with Eroyn Franklin

Posted on: January 2nd, 2018

Healthcare Comics: Educate, heal and connect through comics with Eroyn Franklin

Saturday, February 17, 12 p.m.–2 p.m.

East Bend Library, 62080 Dean Swift Rd.

In this workshop, you will make your own one-page comic that highlights a medical experience that affected you as a patient, caregiver, or medical professional. This workshop will help you tell your story, which can be a path towards personal healing, helping others understand a condition, or showing a new perspective on a healthcare experience. This class is accessible to all skill levels since we will use simple shapes to create drawings and tell stories in our own voices. The first two hours will be workshop, and the last hour will be optional studio time for participants to continue working on their projects with support from Eroyn.

This workshop is free and open to the public. Register via www.deschuteslibrary.org/calendar
Presented in partnership with Deschutes Public Library.

 

Eroyn Franklin has been making comics for the last decade and has written many short works and two graphic novels, Detained and Another Glorious Day at the Nothing Factory. She sees stories and images, not as two separate parts, but elements that are intrinsically tied and act as one language. She learned this language from her sister, Tory Franklin, who is also a visual storyteller and a vital influence. They grew up blending their personal and creative worlds–so homes became art venues, friendships turned into collectives, and arts organizing led Eroyn to co-found Short Run Seattle, an arts nonprofit. That fundamental belief in intertwining community and art drove her to seek collaborations with her partner, sister, and many friends. Whether making things alone or in tandem, she moves fluidly between mediums and sizes ranging from miniature books to public art.

You can also hear from Eroyn and the other February AiR at our public Open Studios event on February 24. Click here for more info.
