Call for Artists! Oregon City Chamber of Commerce

Oregon City Chamber of Commerce
615 High Street Oregon City

The OC Chamber of Commerce moved into a new office the first week of June. It is located directly across from the Oregon City Elevator entrance on the second floor. The entrance off the street side is at 615 High Street in Oregon City. The Chamber has over 500 SF of blank wall space that they would like TRAG to decorate with local Art.

Both 2D artists and 3D artists are welcome to participate. Although TRAG will be invited to participate in the Chamber’s Grand Opening hopefully in July,

This Gallery will not be manned by Artists. Because of this, we are unable to offer jewelry or cards at this time. TRAG will follow the direction of Clackamas County Art Alliance’s local business galleries and offer the Art by direct contact with the Artist. TRAG will install the artwork for the Artists, but a placard will be displayed beside each art piece with Artist’s name and contact info.

Any potential sales will be negotiated directly between the Artist and the Buyer. Artists will receive 100% of the sales. All Artists will be asked to sign a Hold Harmless agreement that will protect both TRAG and the Chamber of Commerce from all liability.

Time is of the essence: since the Chamber would like to have the Artists’ work installed for their Grand Opening in July.  If you are interested in participating, please either call or text Holly Kroening at 503-421-7620 as soon as possible. Thank you for your consideration and support!
