WILSONVILLE FESTIVAL OF ARTS: This Moment on Earth

SUBMIT: Email to moment@wilsonvillearts.org 

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: “This Moment on Earth” is a juried group exhibition of visual works that raise awareness about issues facing society and the planet in 2022.  Recognizing that we are at a crossroads on many fronts, WACC wish to provide a platform for visual artists to communicate, critique, educate, encourage, and embolden.  Art can inspire the solutions we need for the future. This exhibition is the main feature for our revived Wilsonville Festival of Arts (WFA), which WACC has had to cancel two years in a row.

 

Each artist may submit up to three works for consideration.

To adapt to the pandemic, WACC present a hybrid exhibition that can be experienced in-person as well as virtually. The in-person Wilsonville Festival of Arts: “This Moment on Earth” shall be hosted at Meridian United Church of Christ (6750 SW Boeckman Rd., Wilsonville, OR 97070) from June 2 to 4, 2022.  The virtual exhibition shall be accessible on our website (wilsonvillearts.org) from June 5 - July 31, 2022.

Artists selected for the physical exhibits will receive special instructions about delivery and pick-up of physical works.

EXHIBITION DETAILS:  All accepted artworks will be featured in the in-person festival show June 2 to 4, 2022 at Meridian United Church of Christ (6750 SW Boeckman Road, Wilsonville, OR 97070).  A “First Look” ticketed event Thursday, June 2 (6 to 9pm) kicks off the exhibition, followed by two festival days, Friday and Saturday, June 3 and 4 (10am to 5pm)

To adapt to the pandemic, WACC shall also present a virtual exhibition, accessible on our website from June 5 - July 31, 2022
