The 17th annual Art in the Pearl Fine Arts and Crafts Festival will be held Aug. 31, Sept. 1 and Sept. 2 in Portland’s Pearl District. Admission is free. Hours are Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Monday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

As one of the top five art festivals in the nation, Art in the Pearl attracts artists in America and Canada. The setting of the festival, combined with the artistic talent, allows festival visitors an authentic connection to the world of art and is satisfying for first-time art fans to experienced collectors.

Hundreds of artists apply for one of the 130 booths. Three local artists are participating in the event: Jacqueline Hurlbert and Grayson Malone, both of Lake Oswego and Ann Munson of West Linn.

Innocence Sharpens Her Claws by Jacqueline Hurlbert, made of ceramic, stands 30 inches tall.

Hurlbert is a painter and ceramic artist and her work is described as intensely imaginative, personal and absorbing.

Malone, who got her start as a general building contractor, makes sculpture from concrete and found objects.
