Our Story

            Since our start in 1986 Studio 299 has grown into a multifaceted organization that allows us to participate in many exciting projects in the Klamath/Trinity communities. We have put on Art Shows at the Mainstreet Gallery in Weaverville and published two local poetry/art anthologies. We also established and managed the Willow Creek Farmers’ Markets from 2004-2008 and the highly successful Taste of Willow Creek from 2005-2014. In 2012, we purchased 75 The Terrace and using private donations and the generous Headwaters Fund Grant of $40,000 we built a beautiful multipurpose room that currently functions as an art gallery. Later, in 2014, we installed a pottery studio that hosts classes for the community and in 2018 we rounded out our facility by constructing a full commercial kitchen where we have cooking classes and rent out for community use.

            Below you can meet the valued members of our team and the people that continue to bring us our wonderful programming!
