Juried Art Overview

The goal of the Juried Art Exhibition  is to educate and expose  our large audience to fine art, and to support and showcase regional fine artists.   The show includes bodies of work from 35 – 60 artists, juried by a prominent Northwest art professional.

Arts at the Port opens on Saturday, July 27 at 6:00 pm at the waterfront Port Transit Shed. It is a free evening of art, wine, appetizers and music – and an opportunity to meet and mingle with many of the artists. Awards will be announced at the Opening. The exhibition continues July 29 – August 1, from 9-5 and during Festival hours August 2-4.

There is no theme for this year’s show. It includes work from all mediums including painting, photography, sculpture, fiber, glass, wood and mixed media work.  Visit our guidelines for application information.

Arts at the Port includes up to $11,000 in awards.
