PAWS Adoptathon for Kitties Longing for a Home

The Model Boats Sailed Away- but ........

The paintings are still on view (aside from those which have sold) through the month of October.  If you have never been in our museum this is your excuse to take a peek inside!  Admission to the art showing in the Community Room is always free.  I guarantee you'll want to come back to see the rest of the museum.

Call to Artists and Model Makers for Group Show on 'BOATS' in September

September's Artist Showing is an open group show devoted to 

Open to artists of all skill levels!

Old, new, ancient, sporting, working, purely pleasure, non-working, sunk, sailing. Canoes, ocean liners, dingies, rafts, fishing get the idea!  

Guidelines:  Work will need to be framed, or on a cradled box to hang on our fish line hanging system.

We have table and pedestal space for models brought in, and 20-30 wall spaces for paintings, drawings, etchings, mosaic, collage, etc.

1. All work must be handmade, no digital works. 
2. One or two pieces per artist. 
3. Gallery commission is 30%, and work under $150 is suggested, but we won't       be picky if you have work you need to price higher.

Let us know if you'll be bringing one or two pieces so we can reserve a spot for you.  Email us at or call us at 503-322-8411 between 10 and 4, Thursday through Monday.

You will bring your art to hang on Thursday, Sept 1 from 10-2 PM.  Please make sure your contact info is attached to the back of your work.  We prefer to have printed labels with Title, Medium and size, Artist name and Price, approximately 3x4", but we can print your labels for you if you email us that information 5-7 days before the show, and the labels will be waiting for you when you bring in your work.

Work that isn't sold must be picked up on Friday Sept 30 before 4 PM.

Good News!

The September artists have agreed to let their work hang through October.  That means you can procrastinate a little (but just a little - some of this stuff is going home with people who live out of town and they - gasp - want to take it with them!)  Two of Susan Lindstedt's lovely botanical watercolors will join the exhibit too.  (Talented family wouldn't you say?) 

Lindstedt/Simmons Reception

The September artist's reception enjoyed a very nice turnout, and conversation, smiles and sales were the result!  See those kids?  Maybe they'll grow up and want to have art shows of their own.  Ya just never know!

"Uh-oh", he's thinking, "She's gonna buy something.  Wish there was some vodka in this punch.....".

 Steve Lindstedt's steel sculptures are getting more and more complex......

 The artist oversees the crowd with quiet glee....

Not just fish my friends, there are sea creatures and Viking ships on display!

Teresa Simmons brought watercolors, quilted wall hangings, and crayon drawings!  You really should get in here and see this stuff!

The artist, Teresa Simmons.  This was her first exhibit at the Museum.

She liked it!

 Doreen Lindstedt brought watercolor landscapes...

 A bird quilt.... to warm your eyeballs.

And her smiling self!
