Art honor

Ashland visual artist Phyllis Trowbridge has been accepted as an Artist-in-Residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology.

Each year, more than 200 artists, writers, scientists and musicians apply for one of 24 residencies offered by the nonprofit organization. Trowbridge will receive free lodging and workspace for four weeks at the Sitka Center's campus on the Oregon Coast to concentrate more deeply on her painting.

Trowbridge has been painting and drawing the landscape outdoors year-round for more than 20 years. She has exhibited her work in solo shows in Portland as well as numerous group exhibitions, and pursued painting residencies at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, Red Cinder Creativity Center, and the Vermont Studio Center. She also has taught painting and drawing at Pacific Northwest College of Art, Oregon College of Art & Craft, the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, Portland Community College, Rogue Community College and Southern Oregon University.
