A to Z Wineworks, located at their REX HILL property in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, seeks an Artist in Residence for the Fall 2023.
The A to Z Artist in Residence program is a an immersion in the natural cycle of a vintage from grapes to glass. The Artist in Residence will first work the 2023 vintage harvest as a paid cellar intern, working alongside our seasonal harvest crew and year-round winemaking and production staff. Following the conclusion of harvest, the Artist in Residence will receive support from A to Z and access to staff and properties for a period of artistic reflection and creation. The residency concludes with a public showcase of some of the artist’s work through a gallery showing, lecture, reading or performance.

About the Residency
Location: The Artist in Residence will primarily work at the REX HILL property in the Willamette Valley. The artist will have access to the winery, vineyards and staff throughout the course of the residency.
Duration: The residency begins with participation in the 2023 harvest as a Harvest Intern. Typically, harvest begins in mid- to late-August, and continues through early November. Following the conclusion of the harvest, the residency will commence.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance: We are open to proposals from artists, writers and poets across all mediums and disciplines. To learn more about our current and past residents, visit our website at
Support: The residency includes a monthly stipend of $800 for the duration of the residency, beginning after completion of the harvest internship. Depending on the medium and artist’s proposed focus, limited additional consideration may be provided in support of furnishing project materials. Housing in the winery’s onsite gate house can be considered for inclusion in the residency; during harvest, this housing will be shared with other interns.
Expectations of the artist: A to Z Wineworks supports people, places, and culture. It seems especially important now to support the liberal arts that help us find ways to expand vision and engage with diverse, thoughtful perspectives that help us grow as human beings. The artist will be expected to engage with the staff and contribute to the culture of the winery through interactions and presentations, including providing materials to feature in regular internal communications. The artist will engage with the community at the end of the residency through a public showcase of some of the year’s work in a gallery showing, lecture, reading or performance.
