Visual Arts Showcase celebrates 30 years

Beaverton City Library hosts nine-day art exhibit and sale


The Reser’s Fine Foods 30th annual Visual Arts Showcase exhibit and sale will run from Saturday, Nov. 3, through Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Beaverton City Library, 12375 S.W. Fifth St.

The showcase is free, open to the public and features more than 90 works of art by Oregon artists. The show is presented by the Beaverton Arts Commission.

“It’s hard to believe that the showcase has celebrated art in our community for 30 years,” said BAC President Shelley Wright. “It’s wonderful to see the evolution of our artists and how many participate in the jury process to be chosen for the Beaverton showcase.”

“It’s amazing to think about the tremendous talents represented by the Visual Arts Showcase over the past 30 years,” added Beaverton Mayor Dennis Doyle. “Showcase continues to provide a unique opportunity to view inspirational works created by Oregon artists, displayed right here in Beaverton.”

An Opening Night Gala and Reception will kick off the nine-day exhibition and sale on Nov. 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. in meeting rooms A and B of the library.

Open to the public, the gala allows community members to meet the participating artists, as well as local community leaders, while getting a chance to vote for their favorite work. Awards will be announced at the gala, which includes seven $100 first-place awards and a $500 Best of Show award. Professional pianist Linda Smith will perform throughout the evening.
