The Arts Council of Lake Oswego is pleased to invite emerging, mid-career, and established artists to submit proposals for Lake Oswego’s nationally recognized, award-winning outdoor Gallery Without Walls exhibit. Artwork will be on display throughout the downtown business district for a two-year exhibition period starting in the summer of 2018. While on exhibit, sculptures must be available for purchase. Artists should have some experience with public art and be interested in expanding their practice into the public realm, but do not need an exhibition history with public art in order to apply.
In its eighteenth year, the gallery’s mission is to integrate art into the daily lives of local residents and visitors to the community by presenting works from regional, national, and internationals artists that resonate with people of diverse backgrounds. We seek artists working in a variety of media and encourage proposals that engage, educate, and inspire the community.
Up to fifteen artists will be chosen by the Selection Committee to provide a work of art for outdoor public display in Lake Oswego. In recognition, the Arts Council will provide each selected artist with an honorarium of $850.
