Caldera Arts Center will host the first of its free winter Open Studio events from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, a special opportunity to see the creations of artists from across the country who were awarded four-week stays at Blue Lake through Caldera’s artist in residence program.
Scheduled talks and presentations by the artists in residence will begin at 1:20 p.m., followed by self-guided studio tours. Refreshments and a warm fire in Caldera’s Hearth Arts Center are the tradition for these informal, friendly events.
Featured January artists are: writer Jimmy Newborg, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; visual artists and collaborators Crystal Shenk and Shelby Davis, of Portland; writer Beth Loffreda of Laramie, Wyo.; visual artist Jessica Kruetter, of Denver; musician John Berendzen, of Portland; and film and mixed media artist Lani Asuncion of Hamden, Conn.
The next events will be held Feb. 23 and March 23.
Caldera is located at 31500 Blue Lake Drive, 16 miles west of the town of Sisters off of U.S. Highway 20.
