Come get affordable art at event on Oct. 3

Established in October 2014, Affordable Art for Everyone was designed to make original art available to as many people as possible for great prices.

Organizers Lisa Griffen, a mixed-media painter, and Christine Martell, an artist with a career spanning 30 years, are back to deliver the same core concept from last year’s event.

The special buying event features more than 50 artists offering high-quality work for prices as low as under $100. The featured artwork includes paintings, ceramics, glass, jewelry, wood, metalwork and photography.

In addition to featured artists and their pieces, local performing arts organizations will participate in a showcase during the art show, including Bag&Baggage Productions, Hillsboro Artists Regional Theatre (HART), the Hillsboro Community Youth Choir, NW Conservatory of Dance and STAGES.

The show is also family focused, with all-day hands on art activities such as corn on the cob and tree-leaf painting using corks to stamp leaves on a tree.

Games will be provided by the Hillsboro Library, the Village Home School resource center and the Swallowtail Waldorf School.

The sale will be held at NW Events in Hillsboro on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Admission is free, with ample parking.
