Celebrating 42 years

Held annually the first weekend in March at Southminster Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, the Fine Art Exhibit & Sale provides an unmatched showcase for more than 80 established and emerging Northwest artists. 

Art in Every Medium

The Exhibit & Sale will feature a variety of ceramics, fiber art, garden art, baskets, glass, jewelry, mixed media, oil, acrylic, pastel, pottery, photography, sculpture, watercolor, and wearable art – virtually something for everyone.

Our Vision

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

Proceeds are used for local arts awards, art education scholarships, art literacy programs, and to support art in the community.

First Look Gala

The Celebration of Creativity begins Thursday evening, March 5th, with a “First Look Gala” from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The gala features live music by Jazz Duo Blackburn & Duthie, hors d’oeuvres, and is the first opportunity to purchase art and meet some of the artists. This event is open to the public, and admission is $10 at the door with ample, off-street parking available at no charge.

Exhibit & Sale

On Friday, March 6th, the Exhibit & Sale is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, admission is free. In the evening the Exhibit & Sale is again open from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, the public is invited to meet the artists at this time and enjoy live music, admission is free for the evening event.

The Exhibit & Sale continues Saturday, March 7th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and guests will be treated to music throughout the day. Admission is free.

At 10:00 am Sunday morning March 8th, Southminster Presbyterian Church invites the public to a unique “Worship in the Art” service in the sanctuary which has been transformed into an art gallery.

Meet the Artist: Lisa Wiser "The foundation of my work is a keen interest in the concept of structure in both the natural and built environment. My primary interest is capturing landscape scenes that visually articulate my emotional response upon approaching the scene."

Meet the Artist: Whistle Post Pottery "A whistle post is a sign marking the spot where a locomotive engineer has to sound the train's horn or whistle. Our home and studio is within earshot of the Union Pacific mainline and the refrain of the passing trains is the soundtrack to much of our waking and sleeping lives. It seemed fitting to salute it with our name."

Meet the Artist: Jani Hoberg "I continue to add and subtract line and textures, print the results, and rework the plate until the image is appealing to me. My images come from objects or locations that are near and dear to me. They can be from collections of items kept in my studio or a treasure from a vacation spot."
