Call to Artist - Washougal Art Festival

2017 Washougal Art Festival

4 weeks to entry deadline





Just a reminder that the deadline for entries for the 2017 Washougal Art Festival is around the corner on May 1st!

Last year, Washougal Arts & Culture Alliance hosted its first Washougal Art Festival. Based on its resounding success, we are planning to host this even annually! We are excited to announce the the Call For Artists for the 2017 Washougal Art Festival, to be held on Saturday, August 12th at Reflection Plaza in Downtown Washougal.  

The Festival is open to visual artists working in all media and is intended for professional artists who are actively producing and exhibiting their work to sell. All entries will be juried based on originality, creativity, craftsmanship, and professionalism. Judging will also consider the expression of a unique vision and style, and the mastery over the artist's chosen medium.  

“This festival offers a unique opportunity for artists to display and sell works in an intimate and fun setting, and to gain exposure to the Columbia River Gorge community,” said Ferguson. “We're also proud to provide visitors with the accessibility to original art in our community. Last year's participating artists were so impressed by the professionalism and attendance of the event, that most expressed their desire to participate this year. And many visitors were seen leaving with artworks in hand, which is a win for both the artists and the attendees." Performing arts groups, hourly art raffles, and a children's art activity area will round out the Festival.
