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.

Michelle Ross – Drawing and Painting Department Head, OCAC
Michelle Ross received her MFA in painting and drawing from Washington State University, Pullman, in 1994, and her BFA in painting from the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland, in 1987. Her work is concerned with the placement and effect of fragments. Interested in a physical response to form, color and space she operates with the premise that certain arrangements of these simple elements can evoke clearly felt and understood experiences beyond language. Distance, proximity, isolation and repetitive structures of order are utilized as both comforting and alienating. She is convinced that these experiences can be socially powerful and that painting can be a sign, a reminder of this.

Her work has been exhibited and curated in print around the United States and in Europe, including by Jennifer Blessing at the Guggenheim, New York; Lowery Sims, of the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, Jessica Morgan at the Tate, London, the Art Gym, Marylhurst University, Marylhurst, Oregon; Nine Gallery, Portland, Oregon; New Mexico State University, Las Cruces; Rome International University, Italy; and Barrett House Galleries, Poughkeepsie, New York. She has been an artist-in-residence at the American Academy in Rome, Italy; New Mexico State University, Las Cruces; and Vermont Studio Center, among others. Ross has received numerous grants and honors, including an Oregon Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship; a Regional Arts and Culture Council Project Grant; an Oregon Arts Commission Career Opportunity Grant; and a Center on Contemporary Art, Seattle, Juror’s Award. She is a professor at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, Portland. Ross is represented by Elizabeth Leach Gallery, Portland, Oregon.
