Debby Kaspari painting at Elkhorn Slough

The Elkhorn Slough Artist in Residence Program is hosted by the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Elkhorn Slough Foundation to inspire our community to have a greater connection with the ecological, historical, and cultural resources of the Elkhorn Slough and its watershed. We host artists in the Spring and Fall.

We should be announcing our next Call for Artists later this year for our fall.

The Porter Ranch will be hosting artists again during this year’s Open Studio Art Tour.
