Description:

The 20th Around Oregon Annual exhibit, honoring the quality and diversity in creative expression being produced throughout Oregon, is open to artists living or working in all parts of the State. The Around Oregon Annual exhibition also recognizes and encourages excellence by awarding cash prizes, thoughtfully selected from the actual work. Our goal is to share the voices of all artists together: from the young and upcoming, as well as mid-career and established artists.


We encourage a diverse selection of artists to apply, including artists from historically excluded communities including (but not limited to): artists from rural communities, emerging artists, artists from communities of color, LGBTQ+, artists who are self-taught, and artists new to creating artwork. We welcome artists regardless of citizenship status, familial status, race, gender identity or expression, religious observance, sex, sexual orientation, and sources or level of income.

  • The exhibit is open to all artists living or working in Oregon; the work does not need to have “Oregon” as its subject matter.
  • All work must be recent and completed during 2019 – 2022.
  • Accepted Media: Digital/video, animation & poetry, 2- and 3-dimensional, excluding music and performance, will be considered.
