Caldera Announces 2020 Artists in Residence

Posted on: January 17th, 2020

Caldera announces 28 artists who have been selected for residencies in winter 2020.

 

Through our residency program, Caldera supports artists, creatives, and cultural workers to build skills, relationships, and projects that inspire growth, combat oppression, and activate change. Residents draw inspiration from the residency community and the natural world surrounding the Caldera Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Caldera offers 2 and 3.5 week residencies January through March. Residencies are open to US-based and international artists, creatives and cultural workers in any discipline. Artists at any stage of their careers who are not current students are eligible. Residencies are open to parent artists who would like to bring their children.

 

In 2020, residents will create new works in ceramics, comics/illustration, dance, poetry, painting, music, and many other genres. While in residence, these artists will also offer workshops to students in Caldera’s Youth Program as well as to the public.

 

Please join Caldera for three afternoons of art and conversation with our 2020 Artists in Residence at Open Studios. This year, our first Open Studios on February 1 will be held at the Downtown Bend Library. For our next two events on February 29 and March 28, we invite you to our Arts Center near Sisters. Open Studios is an exciting opportunity to connect with dynamic and diverse artists from around the country as they share their work alongside young people from Caldera’s Youth Program. Artists in Residence, as well as Caldera students, will share their work with the public through presentations and performances. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.

 

Applications for 2021 residencies will be open February 1, 2020.

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.
