Contact: Sheila Edridge, 530-396-2353
The public is invited to an “Open Cabin” Friday, September 15th, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and again on Saturday, September 16th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The cabin is located directly across from the entrance to Brandy Creek Beach on Kennedy Memorial Drive. Guests will get to visit with this year’s artist in residence Mel Jackson. Guests will get to talk with the artist as he creates works of art inspired by his two week stay at Whiskeytown.
It is recommended that visitors park in the parking lot at the entrance to Brandy Creek Beach and walk to the cabin site. A valid Whiskeytown park pass is required and must be displayed on your vehicle.
Following a long tradition of artists drawing inspiration from National Parks, Whiskeytown seeks applications from artists nationwide, wishing to come and stay for a two-week period at the Park. Co-sponsored by the Friends of Whiskeytown and the National Park Service, the residency is open to artists working in a variety of mediums. Professional two-dimensional visual artists, photographers, sculptors, writers, composers, and crafts artists are encouraged to apply.
