Festival calls for artists for fundraiser

Sisters Folk Festival (SFF) has issued a call for artists to contribute to the My Own Two Hands (MOTH) virtual art auction scheduled for May 10-15.

Sisters Folk Festival is more than a music festival. The organization’s outreach programming in Sisters schools includes 20 years of music and arts education through the Americana Project, 12 years of building handmade guitars and ukuleles in Sisters High School’s luthier program, visual arts support, and our recently completed five-year Studio to School grant for arts programming in grades K-8.

The SFF partnership with Sisters School District has guaranteed that every child in the district has access to visual-arts education in grades K-6 and multidisciplinary art classes as an elective class at both the middle and high schools for all students.

Forced online by the pandemic last year, the Festival found that the virtual MOTH broadcasted artists and their heartfelt works to a larger audience than ever before, attracting participation from 23 states and 42 Oregon communities.

This year’s theme for MOTH is “Holding Hope.”
