OCFOTA 2021 Contract & Hold Harmless Agreement

OCFOTA is a two-day outdoor event, August 14 and 15 from 10-5 on the grounds of the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive & Visitor Information Center, 1726 Washington Street, Oregon City, Oregon 97045. This is an outdoor event so please be prepared to be on the lawn. Although we strive to set the booths up on level ground, some of the areas may have a slight slant to them so plan accordingly with additional supplies if needed. If you have mobility issues, please let us know so we can make arrangements for your booth access and parking needs. It is our goal to keep our artists safe and happy! Please use the form below to sign the Artist Contract and Hold Harmless Agreement and pay the $135 booth fee by July 15, 2021. If you are unable to this on line, please let us know and we can make other arrangements.

Your point of contact will be Trieste Andrewsocfota@threeriversartistguild.com.

Cancellation Policy: If an artist who has paid a booth fee cancels on or before August 1, 2021, 5 p.m. PST, a refund will be sent, minus a $20.00 administrative fee. Cancellations after August 1, 2021, 5 p.m. PST will not receive a refund.

Note: By signing the contract and Hold Harmless agreement, the Artist hereby authorizes the use of any and all images of Artist’s work submitted through the jury process in connection with promotional efforts. Marketing will be posting on Facebook and Instagram as well as the Three Rivers Artist Guild website and print advertising.

Silent Auction:  There will be a silent auction and we respectively ask our participating artists to donate a piece of their work. The funds from the silent auction are used for the next year’s festival and help to keep our Artists’ fees low. This year OCFOTA will be holding a hybrid silent auction where your artwork will be displayed and the public may bid manually, but a QR code will be displayed at each booth and the public will be able to bid by their phone if they prefer. Your item should be delivered at time of set up either Friday between 12-5 pm, or Saturday morning between 7-9:30. We may hold a Meet the Artists’ reception on Friday evening with a preview of the auction items – please keep an eye out for further announcement regarding this. We will also be sending out a final instruction sheet closer to the Festival which will include any other information you may need.

Thank you so much for participating this year. It has been a difficult year to say the least and we are excited and grateful that OCFOTA is leading the pack in bringing life – at least a little – back to normal.

Three Rivers Gallery & Gifts Update and Important Survey Due June 10th!

We have all experienced tremendous change this past year including the TRAG Gallery. First thanks to everyone who participated and supported the Gallery this past year.  I am pleased to say we are still hanging in there, but we are considering some changes and need our members’ input before moving forward. The following is an update on the Gallery and a questionnaire that we need your response on by June 10th.
 
Due to the absence of a tenant in the café, the Gallery has experienced much slower traffic, and some of you expressed a desire to find another space for the Gallery. TRAG board members made a concerted effort to find a different space but found that most spaces are double what we are paying. I would like to make everyone aware that the Singer Hill owners have done everything possible over the past year to keep us going. We would not be open without them, and we owe them our deepest gratitude and support.
 
Due to the slower traffic and vacant space at Singer Hill, we are considering keeping the Gallery open only from Friday through Sunday from 10-4 until the owners find a new tenant. Lesser hours will also help to man the gallery, which has been an issue over the past few months. Some members are more comfortable with a second person, but this has made it difficult to fill all spots. Please be aware that fees, commission percentages, and hours will remain the same – only the days will change. TRAG needs your input before putting any of these changes into place. Please fill out the following survey and return by June 10th. This will give us enough information and time to announce a Call for Artists.

The form is now closed. Thank you for your interest.

Call for Artists: June/July/August/September 2021 Rotation at the Oregon City Chamber of Commerce Gallery

Updated May 28th, 2021

We are sad to announce the new rotation with the Chamber of Commerce office has been put on hold.

Per Trieste & Victoria, the office is having to move to a new location in July so it would be non productive to start a new rotation at this time. The move is due to the need for a new roof plus repairs to the current building.

Anyone planning to pull their art to have it ready for the upcoming rotation at the TRAG Gallery needs to contact me ASAP & we can arrange time to retrieve it.
If you are willing to have your art stay I will determine the July date with Victoria to pull ALL art at that time.

We certainly will keep everyone informed of the changes ahead.
Our sincere apologies for this bump in the road.

Be Calm and Keep Making Art.

Regards,
Vona & Diana

Call for Art: Images of What Remains

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego invites artists to submit up to three works that include images of abandoned  places or structures found within the Pacific Northwest. Works will be curated into an exhibition on view  September 3rd through October 29th, 2021

The Pacific Northwest has a unique history – from Indigenous Peoples, early frontier days and the Oregon Trail to boom and bust industries like trapping and mining. As a result, our landscape is dotted with abandoned human-made places and structures that were once thriving. There are a number of gold rush ghost towns, ship  wrecks off the coast (the Peter Iredale), empty farm houses and other buildings, abandoned roads and even a  ghost forest (Neskowin Ghost Forest). Just in time for spooky season, these once thriving or occupied structures and locations remain with the mark of past human presence; now discarded or neglected.  

Have a favorite abandoned structure or place around the region? We want to include your images for display and sale in our ARTspace gallery! This exhibition will bring together images, which can be in any medium, of  the “abandoned.” The word “abandoned” for this exhibition is interpreted as buildings/structures or locations that are no longer occupied or used as once intended. Decommissioned lighthouses, forts, abandoned cars, or  fire towers can also qualify. Locations must be within the Pacific Northwest, which includes Oregon,  Washington, Idaho, and Northern California. 

** The Arts Council does not condone trespassing on private property to capture images. When necessary,  please do your research and obtain proper permissions. ** 

As the only dedicated visual arts gallery in the city of Lake Oswego, the Arts Council and its ARTspace gallery have a unique opportunity to inspire thought and conversation through art. The Arts Council of Lake Owego’s  mission is to ensure that arts are accessible and an integral part of life in our community.  

Eligibility 

This exhibition is open to all artists. All media will be considered. 

• Works must fit through gallery door (double retail sized door) 

• All work must be ready for exhibition upon arrival – Framed with wire for hanging, if 3D, must have a  base or mount (ACLO has a limited number of pedestals) 

• Any special hardware should be provided 

• If entries from out of area are accepted, no reimbursement for shipping or delivery will be provided • Works will be assessed for exhibition based on quality, subject matter in accordance with “abandoned”  theme, and overall aesthetic 

• Accepted artists are required to become a Friend of the Arts Council ($50 fee) to help offset costs in  producing the exhibition, promotion and associated programming

Applications should include: 

• No more than three works per artist will be considered 

• Photos of artwork being submitted in JPEG, PNG or PDF format 

• A brief description of each work 

• For each work include: title, location (doesn’t have to be exact), date of creation,  medium, and dimensions 

• Price (note ACLO’s 30% gallery fee) 

• Artist statement 

• Contact info for artist including website and/or social media 

Email applications as a single PDF to sgjohnson@lakeoswego.city with the subject line “Call for Art- Abandoned”.  While emailed applications are preferred, applications by mail should include a CD or jump drive with digital  photos and can be sent to: Arts Council of Lake Oswego, PO Box 369, Lake Oswego, Oregon 97034  

Deadline: July 9th, 2021 

Artists will be notified of their acceptance status by August 2nd, 2021. Accepted artists will be asked to sign a  gallery contract and artwork shall be delivered to the Arts Council no later than August 20th, 2021.
