The arts thrive in Sisters
There's something about Sisters Country that inspires artists. There's the natural beauty of course – how could you not be inspired by the majesty of the Three Sisters, the harmonies of the rushing waters of Whychus Creek and the Metolius River?
Yet it's more than that. Sisters has created a true community of artists – people who support and inspire each other to dig deeper, reach higher.
Creativity abounds, from the fiber arts to magnificent wood sculpture, from painting to photography. And there's always music in the air.
