The 2021 Charbonneau “Art with Flair” Festival of the Arts will combine the best of two worlds for lovers of the arts to enjoy, admire and purchase fine art, crafts, and music — a LIVE Art & Music Show at the Charbonneau Events Center and a VIRTUAL EXHIBITION of Art & Music online through the end of the year.
Covid-19 & a Live Festival Uppermost in our planning is the health, welfare and safety of all in attendance. Most COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, but we never know when that might change.
Live & Virtual Shows: Art & Music Artists will be juried to display their works at the Live Art Gallery Show or the Live Artisan Vendor Show. For our Music Stage, musicians will be auditioned and selected for online performances and potentially invitations to live performances at this year’s festival. Those plans are still in development.
We want as many as physically possible to join us in person of course, but you have an additional option — the Virtual Exhibition — open to all artists, artisan vendors and musicians. This allows a broader range of artists and musicians to participate as well as a broader audience of supporters to attend in-person and online.
We strive to earn a five-star experience from our entrants as well as from our supporting audience who participate in the festival each year. To encourage as many as possible to enter, there will be no jury fees.
2021 Silent Auction As in past years, we welcome entrants to donate one of their works of art or their music CD’s or performance tickets to our Silent Auction, which is one of the primary fundraisers.
Our Invitation to Join “Friends of Charbonneau Arts” New this year, we are offering membership to the “Friends of Charbonneau Arts” which includes the benefit of discounts at festival registration.
Partnerships & Publicity Community Partnerships. We are happy to announce that we are continuing our community partnership with the Wilsonville Arts & Cultural Council (WACC) this fall. As they were unable to present a live festival again this year, we are working together to invite their artists to our live and virtual shows and more. Organizers are still planning other exciting possibilities.
Spreading the Word. Along with our website presence, we offer widespread promotion of our event and our participating artists and musicians. We have planned publicity with the help of Pamplin Media, our ongoing partnerships with the Charbonneau Villager, Wilsonville’s Boones Ferry Messenger, the Clackamas County Art Alliance, Charbonneaulive.com and other online and print outlets, to help us promote the Virtual Exhibition throughout the region. Our big marketing push starts in September and includes print and online media buys. We maintain active Facebook and Instagram pages where we post features on all artists and musicians participating in the show. Posters, flyers and postcards are used throughout the local area to promote the event. An online media kit page with digital flyers are made available to all juried-in artists and musicians to forward to their personal mailing lists. Last year several thousand viewers checked into our Virtual Exhibition. In past years, the live show has also attracted hundreds of local artists and supporters of the arts over the three-day festival.
We hope to see you at the 2021 Charbonneau’“Art with Flair” Festival of the Arts, sell a lot of art and music, and raise funds for our local high school art programs too. Click the following button link to begin the process.
Our deadline for this year’s entries is August 13, 2021.
See you in November!

Call to Art Makers living/working in Oregonfor an Open/Invitational show
Deadline: September 12, 2021
Date of Exhibition: November 18 – December 29, 2021
In 2020, The Arts Center asked art makers to think about what “home” meant to us all in the year-end Home Sweet Home exhibit. At that time, our homes were our prison and/or our sanctuary. This year, we have seen signs of hope and getting back to what once was called “normal”, after the intense time of restrictions.
For the 2021 Winter show, The Arts Center seeks artworks that contemplates the notion of going On to New Horizons.
How can we express our regained freedom of movement and re-emergence back in the world? Interpretation of a “new horizon” can be literal, (now that we can venture out again), or metaphoric, (an escape of the confinement in which we all lived). May this show inspire dreams of our renewed possibilities: about community, about travel to exotic places or to our own backyards. Visits with friends at gatherings and festivals, and meeting new people are other subjects to explore. There is an opportunity for storytelling and representational art, but also for more conceptual and abstract artwork.
On to New Horizons will be a hybrid invitational and non-juried exhibit.
All art makers and creatives will be notified that their work submission has been received. Emails confirming decisions of the selection committee will be sent October 1, 2021. This is our holiday show, you may consider the gift appeal of your work.
All submitting art makers and creatives must include a short statement about what On to New Horizons means to you, and how it is expressed in your artwork.
This Call is for all visual art media, literary short prose and poetry, music and recorded dance performances! The recorded literary readings and performative arts videos will be played on a monitor in the gallery and shared online. Literary arts submissions will also be collected in a loose leaf book to enjoy reading in the gallery. We will schedule a “Read-In” for our writers and the public.
We welcome artists of all ages and levels of experience. We encourage a diverse selection of artists to sign up, including artists from traditionally or currently underserved communities including (but is not limited to): artists from rural communities, emerging artists, artists from communities of color, LGBTQ+, artists who are self-taught, and artists new to creating artwork.

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

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.
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)

• 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
