Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts to return outdoors
Looking ahead to Lake Oswego's largest art festival, adjustments have been made yet again to the popular multi-exhibit event.
The 58th annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts, which typically draws around 20,000 people each summer, will return this June with modifications. The event will center on an outdoor Art in the Park exhibit June 26 and 27 at George Rogers Park, with a focus on artists who produce original, handmade fine arts and crafts. Lakewood Center for the Arts is currently seeking applications for artists interested in showcasing their work.
"Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, and for the sake of the welfare of our artists and patrons, we've had to make some adjustments this year," Andrew Edwards, executive director for the Lakewood Center for the Arts, said in a press release sent Feb. 11.
Artists from across the Pacific Northwest will showcase work for sale throughout the exhibit, which will be curated by Christopher St. John and will follow COVID-19 safety precautions with timed and measured entry.
Artists who work in sculpture, photography, printmaking, jewelry, ceramics and 3-D mixed media, among several other art forms, are encouraged to apply for the exhibit.
The application deadline is March 8.
According to the press release, Lakewood will also host smaller events and programming throughout 2021. For more information, visit the Lakewood Center's website.
