March 23 is a special opportunity to experience the creative process of exceptional artists and to learn more about their residency experience at Caldera.
Open Studios is free and open to the public and presents the work of individuals from around the country chosen by jury and awarded four-week stays at Caldera’s Arts Center at Blue Lake through its renowned Artist in Residence program.
After Open Studios consider extending the inspiration to an evening at House on Metolius where they are offering a special reception and dinner with the artists. An special overnight discount is available for those interested in staying over. To reserve a spot for this unique, special evening call 541-595-6620.
Open Studios take place at Caldera’s beautiful Arts Center at Blue Lake, 16 miles west of the town of Sisters, Oregon. Refreshments and a warm fire in Caldera’s Hearth Arts Center are a tradition for these informal, friendly, and often surprising events. Each month, a new group of artists presents their work from 1-3pm.
This month features writer Lydia Conklin, East Sandwich, MA; visual artist Jeff Leake, Portland, OR; actress Karen Yates, Chicago, IL; visual artist Craig Goodworth, Newberg, OR; and visual artist Hayley Barker, Portland, OR. Full bios can be found on the Caldera website, www.calderaarts.org.
