Call for Artists in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana

The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC), on behalf of Industry & Art (sponsored by the Working Waterfront Coalition of Portland) invites artists currently living in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana to submit up to three (3) digital images of existing original artwork for the 2nd Annual Industry & Art juried exhibition and sale to be held at Vigor Industrial on Swan Island, 5555 N Channel Avenue, in Portland, Oregon. The goal for this exhibition is to celebrate the beauty, skill, diversity and professionalism of industrial workers through artists’ perspectives, and promote an awareness of our region’s thriving working waterfronts.

The event is also a fundraiser to support industrial job training programs and habitat restoration. The first annual Industry & Art exhibition was held September 22-25, 2011. Over 40 artworks by regional artists were featured (see list of artists and awardees below) and over $40K in artwork was sold, with $25K raised for education and the environment. Winning artists received cash awards of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 respectively for first, second and third place.
Applications must be submitted using the CaFÉ website (www.callforentry.com). Deadline: Friday, June 1, 2012, 11:59PM Mountain Daylight Time.
