CHALK HILL RESIDENCY / JULY 15-AUGUST 3, 2019
Anne Faith Nicholls has been awarded the Chalk Hill Artist Residency for the Summer of 2019. Here are her plans…
Residency Project Goal: Artist Anne Faith Nicholls will be creating a documentary short film exploring the creative process, and its relation to the natural environment and conservation, during her Artist Residency in rural Sonoma County, California. A renowned crew of filmmakers will document the process of Nicholls’ creating one of her paintings, and exploring the spirit of creativity, through a moving and meditative art film. The film will be entered into various film festivals, with screenings to be announced.
Place: Chalk Hill Artist Residency provides artists with live and work space on the Warnecke Ranch and Vineyard. Located in Sonoma County wine country, the Ranch is a stunning natural environment boasting oak-covered hills, redwood and bay groves, bass-filled lakes, hiking trails and private access to the Russian River. During the residency, artists stay in a 3 bedroom 1920’s farm house and studio spaces are provided in repurposed barns. The residency supports Sonoma County arts and culture by organizing seasonal Open Studios, Outsider Artist Programs, Workshops, Lectures, and Fundraising events for non-profits.
Contributions will help meet production costs and ensure the continuation of important work by independent artists and the vital non-profit organizations that benefit from this residency. Here are some ways to contribute…
