2022 Holiday Show

By Lynda Orzen, Holiday Show Coordinator

The art show only had 28 artist this year with space for 10 more. Let’s hope we can fill it in 2023. This was our 15th annual event-yes 15! Our guild is going to be 16 in 2023! The Holiday Show is only open to members of the guild. The Oregon City News had a wonderful article with one of our artists on the front page! We shared advertising with several other events in the community along with a ½ page ad in the OC News. Over the years, the guild has donated over $7,000 to the Pioneer Community Center’s Meals on Wheels program!

Major kudos to Melody Bush for Facebook advertising, Ingrid Aubry for our postcards and posters – each year they just get better, Kerry Edwards, volunteer coordinator and my right-hand, Lynne Collum for name tags and booth signs and Yelena Shabrova who managed all the computer magic! Couldn’t have done this without good teamwork. Thank you for being so resourceful and fun to work with!

2021 Holiday Show

by Lynda Orzen, Holiday Show Coordinator

I am going to claim the 2021 Holiday Show a success. We didn’t have as many artists participating but shoppers still had a huge variety of artwork to choose from. I know I did a lot of shopping during the weekend! Shoppers were so happy to be able to able to shop in person-finally! Heard lots of comments about the wealth of artwork and the organization of the event.

Tried to take some photos of the event but I’m definitely not a photographer. Unfortunately our photographer, Ingrid Aubry was recuperating from a broken hip. Happy to say, she is recuperating quite well!

Want to thank volunteers and organizers for pitching in to make this a wonderful event!

Happy New Years Artists and a New Year of creating art!

Lynda Orzen

2021 Holiday Show – August Update

Now that we have the fantastic Festival of the Arts behind us, it’s time to look to our future events. The Holiday Show is happening this year. Set up will be on Friday, December 3 and show days on December 4 and 5. We are thinking of changing the times this year to 9 till 4 on Saturday and 10 till 4 on Sunday.

This show is only for members of the guild that have been juried in to either the gallery or another guild event. There will be 39 booths currently available: 35, 6 ft by 8 ft spaces and 3, 24 inches by 12 feet spaces. Cost will be $60 for a full space and $40 for partial.

The application will be in the September 15, 2021 newsletter.

2021 Holiday Show Update

The Pioneer Center is reserved for the 2021 Holiday Show. There will be a Friday, December 3 set up with the show running December 4 and 5. This show is open to TRAG members only! As in past years, 37 6X8 ft ($60) spaces and 3 3X12 ($40) ft spaces. This show is one of the Premier Holiday art events in Oregon City. I believe it will be our 15th!

A lot still depends on the overall safety in our community at that time. Unfortunately, there is no crystal ball that will tell us the future. May have to take extra precautions which will be worked out before the event. More information in September. Would like to form a small committee to help organize the event
