Call for Artists – Spring Fling Festival

The Three Rivers Artist Guild will be holding a one-day block party Art Festival at the Singer Hill Café on May 8th from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

TRAG is looking for 20 artists to participate.

There are no jury requirements. We will be accepting artists on a first come first serve basis.

The booth fee is $25 for the day.

Set up begins at 7 a.m. on May 8th. Festival opens at 9:30 a.m.

It will be held with strict COVID safety precautions. One way in and one way out with an open-air market in front of the gallery as you enter, spaces available on the side gardens, and booths in the Singer Hill Parking lot.

Two spaces are available as you enter the Festival from the Gallery doors. Seven spaces in the side garden area will accommodate a 3-sided table set up. Up to an 8 ft table in front and two side tables of up to 6 feet each. In case of inclement weather bring a protective covering. 12 spaces (3 rows of 4 booths each) are available in the Singer Hill Parking lot. This space will accommodate a 10 x 10 feet tented booth with 2 feet in between each one. Path will be marked for one way only through the booths.

If at all possible, we are asking artists to bring a small DIY project for the public. These can be as simple as a pair of beaded earrings, a bracelet or a coloring book picture. This is not a requirement, but we would appreciate your participation. If you can contribute, please make 25. Be sure to use what you have on hand and make it as inexpensive and simple as possible. Put them in individual bags for the public to pick up. These “DIY Stations” will be scattered throughout the Festival and offered to the public as a scavenger hunt.

Capturing the Moment – Call to Portland Artists and Creatives

Submission deadline is Monday, Oct. 26, 2020 at 5 p.m. PST.

Capturing the Moment is a new call for artists and designers of all media to submit works created in this moment. ANY work that captures a creative response to the global pandemic, Black Lives Matter movement, racial justice protests, and/or the political environment of the moment. Submissions of all media will be considered – murals, paintings, photos, films, essays, poetry, performances captured on film or video, posters, stickers, t-shirt art, etc.

This new call aims to reflect and record this time of change, uncertainty, loss, and hope. It will continue to serve and showcase some of the work emerging from artists and creatives at this moment in our history. Artist submissions selected for Capturing the Moment will be shared via RACC and the City of Portland communication channels including digital formats and social media accounts.

PDXCARES funding is dedicated to Black artists, Indigenous artists, and all artists of color who reside in the City of Portland.

Only works created since March 2020 will be considered. Selected artists will receive up to $1,500 per individual. The overall budget for this initiative is $38,000.

A panel of RACC staff and BIPOC curators selected by RACC will review and curate artist submissions. RACC reserves the right to select works from artists and creatives who do not directly apply to this call, if appropriate.

ELIGIBILITY

This opportunity serves artists who reside in the City of Portland only. Funds may only be awarded for submissions from Black artists, Indigenous artists, and artists of color who meet the eligibility criteria.

Additionally, priority will be given to artists who have not received RACC Support Beam 2020 commissions or a 2020 Project Grant or are not already well represented in Portland’s Portable Works Public Art Collection.

FESTIVAL OF WREATHS 2020 – WE NEED ARTISTS!

FESTIVAL OF WREATHS 2020 – WE NEED ARTISTS!

In partnership with the Oregon City Rotary Club

OC Rotary Club has asked TRAG’s help in raising funds through the first annual Festival of the Wreaths. Rotary is asking for artists to partner with their members to create wreaths, or even just to hire one of TRAG’s artists to make a wreath. All materials will be paid for, and even the potential to pay an artist for their time in making the wreath.

Rotary International is an international service organization. The club’s stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian service, and to advance goodwill and peace around the world. It is a non-political and non-religious organization open to all. Their principal motto is “Service Above Self”. This motto is personified in the Rotary Club of Oregon City’s contributions to our community. They include volunteerism and contributions to the Cub Scouts, meals to Father’s Heart Ministries, the Homeless Resource Fair offering services to disadvantaged, annual distribution of dictionaries to Oregon City’s third graders, and supporter and supplier to Oregon City Head Start. All these contributions are supported by fundraisers throughout the year by the OC Rotary Club. However, COVID restrictions have circumvented these efforts for 2021, and Rotary is in dire need of unique and creative ideas of raising funds for these worthy projects.

If you would like to participate in this fun and meaningful event, please contact president@threeriversartistguild.com for more information. We will be matching artists with Rotary members and their ideas to support our community and those in need.

Halloween-themed poster contest to convey youth drug prevention messages

x

Please join with the Oregon City Chamber, Downtown Oregon City Association,  Three Rivers Art Guild and Oregon City Optimists to support youth

WHAT: Poster art with Halloween or fall themes and messages about the risks of drugs to youth will be submitted into drawing for prizes. Some posters will be enlarged and displayed in the windows of businesses who want youth-created, no-cost Halloween decorations.

WHO: Youth ages 11 to 18 years of age living in the Oregon City School District will be encouraged to enter. The contest is developed by Oregon City

Together (OCT) a Drug-Free Community Coalition.

WHEN: Contest kicks off early October. The posters for the windows will be ready to install Friday, October 23, 2020.

WHY: The biggest reason to get involved is because youth need to know their community supports them and their drug-free healthy futures.

Additionally, secondary research, conducted before the fires occurred, showed families were looking forward to making Halloween a big deal this year. Once the smoke clears (literally) and most folks are recovering, we are optimistic the majority of local parents and youth will welcome a fun and safe Halloween diversion.

A national poll conducted by The Harris Poll showed 74% of millennial moms and young parents say that Halloween is more important than ever this year.

A poll conducted by Morning Consult on behalf of the National Confectioners Association found that 63% of adults believe people will find creative, fun and safe ways to celebrate the Halloween season this year.

“Our consumer insights indicate families will be looking to organize Halloween celebrations for their children while also trying to keep them safe,” said Iryna Shandarivska, senior category director for US Confections at Mondelez International. “This may mean that Halloween gatherings and celebrations that would have otherwise taken place in person shift virtually and that in-person activities happen in more ‘social bubbles,’ which people have created for themselves in a COVID-19 world.”

PARTNER:     There are several ways to support this effort.

  • Reach out to a youth to participate in this important event
  • Donate an item or gift card to the prize drawing.
  • Contribute art supplies for youth who may need them to participate.
  • Display poster art in your window.

Please contact Pam Wilson with donations, questions or suggestions.
