Strassel Farm House and Artist Residency

No Funding
Forest Grove, United States


Emerging and established artists are welcome to apply. BFA and MFA students are considered and encouraged. This is a great resume and portfolio building opportunity for young artists and provides them with access to others at differing points in their careers. We rely on diversity to strengthen the program as it develops and strongly encourage LGBTQ, POC and Indigenous artists to join us on the farm.

Number of Participants

The number of participants will range from 3-12 at any given time. Fees are negotiated on a case by case basis depending on length of stay(1-4weeks), choice of accommodations and level of participation in public events and programs. Partners, collaborators and children are welcome at a reduced rate per person. Opportunities to provide fee-based workshops are available which can offset the costs of room and board. Work exchange is also an option.

Program Description

The director will support each artist to develop public programs and individual projects that will enhance their unique body of work and help them reach personal goals. Residents will participate in group critiques, studio visits, group excursions, topical discussions, work parties and planning sessions. Collaboration, sustainability and community are core values. The director will be on site and act as host, fellow artist, and facilitator. Desired proposals will make use of the natural resources located on the farm, activate or communicate with the land and its history, speculate futures, explore site specificity, time, culture and self-sustaining systems. Interests also include temporary sculpture, architectural projects, and sound work as well as traditional processes with a low or zero environmental impact.
