I don’t see enough people paying homage to Arts Organizations. Without these vital groups in our communities, the intensive work of bringing art to the public eye would be ignored. Personally, I’ve been working diligently for the Watercolor Society of Oregon to plan for the 42nd Annual Western Federation of Watercolor Societies Exhibition. The show will feature up to 100 water media paintings by top artists from across the Western United States. WSO will also feature their annual Experimental Exhibition. Both shows will be stunningly displayed at the on the University of Oregon Campus.
When folks visit these exhibits, I don’t think they consider all the hours of effort that goes into producing the event. This weekend’s Sitka Art Invitational is another great show featuring Northwest artists. (Including me! I’ll have three pieces in the show.) This amazing art organization benefits the community in so many ways. I hope you can stop by Miller Hall at the World Forestry Center to see the show.
Look at this time-lapse video of just how much work the set-up alone takes:
