Today we are so excited to introduce our very first Artist-at-Sea, Rebecca Welti, in a new collaboration between Sitka and OSU’s Hatfield Marine Science Center. She’ll be heading out tomorrow for 10 days on the R/V Sikuliaq from University of Alaska Fairbanks. Rebecca has been creating educational art pieces focused on the world of plankton. Bon Voyage Rebecca! #artistatsea #stemeducation #steameducation #newportoregon #oregoncoast @oregonstate

Artists’ residencies take many forms at Sitka. In December, textile artist June Jaeger came to the coast for a 2-week residency sponsored by the Roundhouse Foundation in support of central Oregon artists. Following the model of Sitka’s Jordan Schnitzer printmaking residency, June was paired with painter and instructor Jef Gunn as he guided her in exploring an unfamiliar medium. To apply for an artist residency at Sitka in 2018-19, visit sitkacenter.org/3-3.html. #sitkacenter #roundhousefoundation #artistresidency #artcenter #oregon #oregoncoast
Greeting winter on this clear, frosty morn. Happy solstice! #salmonriver #winter #solstice #oregon #oregoncoast #cascadehead #sitkacenter #artcenter #ecology #oceanview
It’s a beautiful clear wintry day and our local contractor is doing a bit of work on Sitka’s office/library building. Cedar-clad buildings in the coastal climate need TLC to keep them looking sharp! #oregon #oregoncoast #sitkacenter #cedar #greenconstruction
