3rd Annual ARTS WEEK


The Sou’wester will host 30-35 artists and art collectives for a week of residency work, music, performances and installations.

Decentralized, Staggered & Open Air

Play like art-making grounds us in the process of transforming ourselves and the world around us. Come to the Sou’wester for a week-long Artist Residency to play with materials, the environment, and each other. Providing opportunities for extended play on the weekend, we will invite the public to witness, interact with, and reimagine your work through studio tours, installations and performances. 

Over the past 9 years we have held an event around this time of year to highlight the creative process and the experiential nature of the Sou’wester Residency Program. Each year this event brings amazing artists to this neck of the woods and celebrates the transition from the darkest heart of winter.
