Read the prospectus thoroughly. It provides information on the theme for the show, the location, and important dates. Keep in mind that some shows are juried, which means not all applications are accepted.
Here are the upcoming shows we're planning. Dates and details may change.
All Things Slow 8/3/20 to 11/2/20, Meridian Library*
Here is a chance to celebrate snails & tortoises, slow food, tides and time, the moon path or sunrise or anything else that lives in the slow lane. Watching paint dry, waiting for water to boil or walking an old dog. Lazy long summer days, dog days. Does time stand still? Slow down and smell the roses. Take the long way home. As always, please keep it family-friendly. Feel free to embellish with your own 100 words or less.
Voyage & Vehicle (Juried show, Crossroads Carnegie in Baker City, OR) - October 2020
Consider the physical, metaphorical or metaphysical. Which is the path taken or not taken? What to pack for the trip? Birth, death and the strange trip in between. How far can we go and what kind of craft will take us there? Capture imaginary journeys or your real adventures – humor, calamity or triumph. As always, please keep it family-friendly. Please share your “travel journal”, “fantasy vehicle poem” or other musings in 100 words or less. 2D and 3D media are welcome.
Opus 2020 Annual Juried show, Riverside Hotel - 10/1 to 12/28/20 (approx.)
TVAA’s Best of the Year, works completed since Sept 30, 2019. Open theme. As always, please keep it family-friendly.
Exaggerated 11/2/ to 2/1/21, Meridian Library*
Take it out of proportion. Explore caricature & hyperbole. Go too big or too small, too much of a good thing, hyper-color, amplified, squashed & twisted. Magnify, embellish & distort. Stretch the truth. As always, please keep it family-friendly. Your comments welcome in 100 words or less.
* Note that exhibitions at the Meridian Library are limited to wall-hung art and 320 square inches maximum size (including frame) until further notice.

Art is a catalyst for manifesting a world rich in cultural abundance. Plant a seed in fertile minds and reap a prolific crop of new ideas. The harvest season is the perfect time to reflect upon all that we have to be grateful for. The more you give the more you get; open arms, invitations, warmth, love. Artist’s please show us everything that the concept of abundance brings to your mind and heart.
