Chalk Hill Artist Residency
Chalk Hill Artist Residency provides artists of all media with live and work space on the Warnecke Ranch and Vineyard.
Located in Sonoma County wine country, an hour and a half north of San Francisco, 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. Although there is ample opportunity to be quietly absorbed in creative work, the residency is community oriented – the house and studios are located in the vineyards of the100-year-old family ranch. The residency supports Sonoma County arts and culture by organizing seasonal Open Studios, Outsider Artist Programs, Workshops, Lectures, and Fundraising events for local non-profits.
Chalk Hill Residency is an opportunity to be inspired by a uniquely beautiful natural setting. We offer the space and time to pursue creative work on a working ranch within the context of an organization that is dedicated to supporting its local art community.
