Plans for the Future

The Sedimenti Partners have lived for the last 8 years on five acres of land in SW Washington, not 40 minutes from the art-filled city of Portland, Oregon and about twenty minutes from the PDX airport, we hope to share this property and its magnificent barn by fitting it out with studios and yurts (semi-permanent tent-like structures which can be heated and as comfortable as a house) so that we might host workshops and artist's residencies.  We have started the non-profit Kahnaway Art and Ecology (1023 is in for approval for 501(c)(3) status as of 2011) along with Jennie Kalberer, in order to realize this dream.

Though we'd like to focus on peer collaboration and environmentally sound art practices we cannot seem to fully dismiss the concern that art classes in public schools are dwindling to an extinct area of study.   We plan to open up our barn to offer limited classes and workshops so that it may be a place for children and teens to pursue this important avenue in life: art, which has given us and so many of our friends a purpose in life.



Our first lecture, by Randall Koch, artist, development director at Neskowin Valley School and former ED at Sitka Art and Ecology at the end of March was a big success!

On June 4th we are hosting John Laursen, co-author along with Terry Toedtemeier, of the stunning photography collection Wild Beauty, Photographs of the Columbia River Gorge, 1867-1957. John Laursen, also founded the nonprofit Northwest Photography Archive with Terry Toedtemeier.

June 24th will be our open house, opening and sharing our property to all who wish to come. There will be a nature walk and found object print making session with Dept of Natural Resource's Carlo Abbruzzese.
