Artists-In-Residence

Through grants from several charitable foundations, Crow’s Shadow typically funds three to six Artists-in-Residence each year. Artists-in-Residence are nominated for a residency based on the quality of their work and their potential to reflect the mission of Crow’s Shadow. Artists participating in these residencies usually spend two weeks in the studio developing limited-edition prints, which are then hand-pulled by Crow’s Shadow’s Tamarind-trained Master Printer, Judith Baumann. Artists who are invited to the studio are often not printmakers–they typically specialize in other areas of visual art and the Master Printer’s technical expertise allows them to realize a project in a media that they would not otherwise be able to accomplish.  The final prints enter the Crow’s Shadow permanent collection, housed both in our studio and at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in Salem, Oregon and are available for sale. Prints published by Crow’s Shadow Press have traveled extensively to galleries and cultural institutions around the region and nationally.
