Welcome Artists

  1. Art in the Park: Fine Art and Craft. An outdoor booth show, located in Lake Oswego’s George Rogers Park, showcases original handcrafted fine art and craft in fifteen categories.
  2. Artist's Vision: The Noun Show – Person, Place or Thing. The Artist's Vision Juried Exhibit is a popular venue for both emerging and established artists in 2D and 3D arts.
  3. Open Show. One of the largest shows of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, the Open Show features work from emerging and professional artists. Everyone is welcome without a jury process.
  4. Special Exhibit: Chasing Paper. This year's Special Exhibit explores paper art. From traditional techniques such as origami and quilling to cutting edge creations of sculpted books to larger-than-life forests, paper artists of today allude to the roots of paper-making from papyrus. The exhibit seeks to explore the unconventional use of this commonplace material in producing extraordinary art through its manipulation.
