As a nonprofit, they provide classes for all skill levels, unique clay-centered events, and residencies for clay studio artists to hone their skills and share their knowledge with others.

(CHA) Conservation, History, Arts
A project of Icicle Fund, Methow Arts & Icicle Creek Center for the Arts
As part of its 20th anniversary celebration, the Icicle Fund hosted two Artist-In-Residence events to celebrate the Conservation, History and Arts (CHA) of North Central Washington at the Methow River (October 2-4, 2020) and the Wenatchee River (May 21-23 2021). The goal of the residencies was to honor, celebrate and record the unique environmental aspects of each location, inspired by revisiting past work created by poet William Stafford in the Methow Valley (1993) or Watershed Artists in the Wenatchee Valley (2001).
METHOW RIVER CHA RESIDENCY: OCTOBER 2-4, 2020
Five artists experienced the Methow River Watershed side-by-side with the words from poet William Stafford, who was commissioned by the Forest Service to write a series of poems about the valley in 1993. Artists used the sites of the Stafford River Poem sites as a launching point for their own work, sketching, painting, drawing, and writing about this unique watershed.
WENATCHEE RIVER CHA RESIDENCY: MAY 21-23, 2021
Ten artists explored the Wenatchee River Watershed, in an effort to document it through words, photographs, video, drawing and painting. They visited sites previously documented by Watershed Art, a 2001 project that brought 14 artists from around the world to the Wenatchee watershed to create pieces inspired by their surroundings.
A sense of place is central to the Icicle Fund’s mission. Over the past 20 years, the Fund has worked collaboratively to nurture artistic expression and imagination, an understanding of our past, and appreciation and love for our natural landscapes. Through this culture of respect, trust, and collaboration, individuals and organizations thrive, and the conservation, history and arts of North Central Washington is not only cared for, but flourishes. To date, the Fund has invested more than $40 million in over 100 organizations in North Central Washington.
Twelve artists across disciplines were selected for the CHA Residencies. Artists visited up to ten locations during their time in the project and documented their surroundings through visual art, writing, film, and other creative mediums, with the opportunity to draw from changed conditions of the environment as illustrated by poet William Stafford and Watershed Artists. This traveling exhibit showcases the work produced by participating artists. These artists are Subhaga Crystal Bacon, Gretchen Daiber, Marlene Farrell, David Lukas, Merry Maxwell, Jennifer Molesworth, Sarah Horowitz, Heather Murphy, Claire Seaman, Rod Weagant, Jane Zanol, and Amber Zimmerman.
CHA is a project of Icicle Fund in collaboration with Methow Arts Alliance & Icicle Creek Center for the Arts
For the Birds
We’ve offered our creative community another chance to show off their design and decorating skills starting with a blank eco-friendly birdhouse as a clean slate on which to paint, sculpt or decorate. See what they came up with in this unique summer show.
