The Celebration of Creativity 2012



The Celebration at a Glance

  • Held first full weekend in March at Southminster Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, Oregon.

  • Detailed summary sheet for interested artists available from the Church Office.


The Celebration of Creativity was started over 35 years ago by a small group at Southminster Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, Oregon. The goal was to meet the need of local artists for a recurring professional venue and to make fine art available and affordable to the community.

Over the years, this showcase of local and regional talent has grown to become one of the premier art shows in the Portland area, famous for its beautiful presentation, a wide variety of media, and an ever-changing array of artists.

The Art Show Committee of Southminster works year-round to produce the Celebration of Creativity, inviting both emerging and established artists after jurying.

The show is made possible by the nearly 100 volunteers who support and staff it - a true labor of love.

We invite you to mark your calendar to join us each March as we celebrate the gift of creativity. Come and enjoy!
