creative growth


the official website for the chetwood is up, featuring portraits by yours truly of past residents. looking forward to expanding this circle of incredible people. hit us up!

here's a bit from the site about what we do, with links to even more portraits:

The Chetwood is an artist-run Oakland, California-based residency established in 2012. We offer subsidized housing to artists visiting the Bay Area in order to create a specific exhibition or project in conjunction with a local institution, non-profit organization or artist-run space.

Our motivation for creating The Chetwood is to enrich our community through the presence of new ideas. We host creators whom we admire. The actualization of this residency has truly been a community effort, with crucial contributions from our home team
