Our 4th Annual artMART is kicking off 2018 and
running through the month of January!
The Arts Council of Lake Oswego offers the community a great opportunity to clean out your art collection and collectibles, along with finding some new treasures during the month of January! This event offers community members a chance to donate artwork to benefit the arts in their community, and make some room in their homes and offices for something new.
Arts Council of Lake Oswego is a 501(c)3 non-profit and participants will receive a tax receipt for donations and contributions. All funds raised from this event will go toward funding outreach and education programs.
FEBRUARY EXHIBIT - ART AS REFUGE
On View - February 2 - 28. Gallery Hours are Tuesday through Friday 11 to 4 PM.
Inspired by the themes explored in the 2018 LO Reads selection, Good Morning Midnight, by Lily Brooks-Dalton, the exhibition will be held at our 510 Museum & ARTspace.
This exhibition aims to start a conversation around the idea articulated through Brooks-Dalton’s prose. The author describes her novel, in part, as focusing “on the interplay and overlap of connection and isolation.” Out of the number of artists that applied, a jury of community members, artists, art historians, and curators chose 16, all from the Portland area, including 2 from Lake Oswego. The exhibit will feature all types of media including photography, sculpture, paintings, collage, drawings, and ceramic wall hangings.
A First Friday Opening reception will be held, Friday, February 2 from 5 to 7 p.m. The community is invited to stop by the gallery, meet the artists, view the work, and enjoy some light refreshments. Then on Friday, February 16 from 12 to 1 p.m., join us for a “Lunch and Learn,” artist talk held in the gallery. This will be an informal gathering with one of the exhibition artists doing a demonstration for participants and a talk about their work. Attendees are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and ACLO will supply beverages. Then on Friday, February 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. an Artist Round Table presentation will be held in a “PechaKucha” style presentation: 20 slides shown for 20 seconds with a rapid-fire talk from the artist to accompany the slides.
