A rich dynamic selection of two- and three-dimensional artworks created from a wide range of media.

The open theme of this year’s Artist’s Vision show has fostered a large and dynamic selection of artists’ works from across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. You’ll discover the richness and strength of this exhibit, which lies in the wide range of materials artists used to create the variety of images on display.

Artist’s Vision Curator Robert Tomlinson notes that as brick-and-mortar galleries are in decline, art festivals are expanding and growing. As many of our attendees already know, this is certainly the case with the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts. The intensity and joy of looking at artwork firsthand certainly outweighs viewing an image of something online. And seeing works during a festival, with its energy and excitement, makes the experience more vivid and memorable.

Cabin in the Sky by Mary DennisFrom this year’s larger-than-ever pool of submissions, the works of 31 artists were selected by our jurors Paula Booth, Director of the Cannon Gallery at Western Oregon University, and Kelsey Grafton, Exhibit and Programming Coordinator, Center for Arts & History, Lewis-Clark State College.

Your attendance at this year’s Festival is a testimony to your enthusiasm for experiencing art first hand. We hope you’ll find the many styles of work in this year’s exhibit as engaging as they are diverse.
