ABOUT THE RESIDENCY at OREGON COAST SCHOOL OF ART
Susannah Israel will be the first Artist in Residence at OCSA in April 2023. Residents work and live in a 700 sq. foot room in a former middle school next to the Umpqua River.
As a sculptor living in Oakland's postindustrial corridor, Israel looks forward to exploring the Umqua river area. Her sculptural work often deals with the meaning of place (Personal Landscapes, Tidal Estuary). The name Umpqua, in the original Takelma language, can mean "dancing water" or "bring across the river," which will play a part in the work she creates.
