·      Henrik Nordahl is a multidisciplinary artist from Oslo, Norway working with abstract sculptures and installations made of materials sourced from the street and hardware stores. His work is a result of a deep research into a material’s behavior and attributes through a process-led experimentation that he considers as a “collaboration”. 

·      Sascha Rose, a Haitian-American femme, connects ancestry, and sense of place with heavily reverberated guitar into heartfelt melodies. She bridges the ambient, indie, and soul into genre-bending songs and while creating music for her own enjoyment also honors its power to build community.

Catherine plans to pursue her oil painting practice on the East Coast full-time for the next few years. Catherine grew up in Southern California and is a member of the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma.

About Sitka’s Residency Program: From October to April over 50 talented artists and scientists will be residing amongst the trees and wildlife to deeply explore their work as Artists and Scientists-in-Residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. 
Located on Cascade Head on the Oregon Coast just north of Lincoln City, the Sitka Center is an ideal location for artists and scientists to withdraw from the distraction of daily life, find the solitude needed to push through their creative boundaries, chase their artistic pursuits and immerse themselves in natural study and reflection. Sitka Center is proud to host residents from around the world in various stages of their careers.
