Chalk Hill Artist Residency is excited to share this new collaboration and to bring a compelling selection of short dance films from around the world to Warnecke Ranch & Vineyard!

These seven short films from the San Francisco Dance Film Festival will take you from the stunning red canyons of Southern Utah to the glaciers of Antarctica, as they explore human relationships to nature, awe-inspiring locations, and storytelling through movement. The program includes Wild, a new film created via a partnership between the Festival’s Co-Laboratory filmmaking project and Sonoma County environmental organization Landpaths. Join SFDFF Founder and Director of Programming Greta Schoenberg, now a Healdsburg resident, as she presents these unique films curated in partnership with Chalk Hill.

Screenings will begin promptly at 1:00 and 2:30pm and run about about 50 minutes.


Seating is limited, so please RSVP with the screening time you wish to attend.

Current COVID 19 safety guidelines will be followed.  

Suggested donation: $10 online or cash at door.

Dyeing Flora
A Virtual Presentation and Q&A with Artist Sheng Lor

Wednesday, October 13, 5:00-6:00pm

Sheng Lor is a Hmong-American artist based in San Francisco, CA. Her process-driven practice combines thread, natural dyes, and visual language to explore new narratives through cloth.

Sheng came to Chalk Hill to embark on a new body of work Dyeing Flora, which she began by foraging local flora for dyes during her stay at the residency. This project is an inquiry into the impact of textile production on communities and the environment, by looking at the reverse; how the environment impacts the textile process. 
Sheng is now in the process of weaving a new piece using fiber she dyed during her exploration at Chalk Hill. This new work demonstrates the climate resiliency of certain sites based on their dyeing flora.

During her presentation, Sheng will talk about about this current project and her time at Chalk Hill Artist Residency, as well the broader scope of her work, and her inspirations. An artist Q&A will follow the presentation.
