Arts Council encourages all to rotate art
Donate old, then buy new art at ArtMart
The Arts Council of Lake Oswego is organizing the 2016 ArtMart, previously called Art Exchange. The event affords community members the opportunity to donate unwanted artwork and replace it with someone elses preloved treasures.
Rotate your art and receive tax receipts for your donations and suggested contributions.
According to Lori Goldstein, program manager for the Arts Council, participating in ArtMart will make a difference in the Arts Councils funding for outreach and education programs, while refreshing your own art collection.
Last years event was so successful we are extending the time all the way through January, says Bonnie Cartwright, an Arts Council board member, chairing the planning committee of the event.
The Arts Council will accept donated artwork between Jan. 4-8, 2016. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, mixed media works, frames and more will be accepted. On Friday, Jan. 8, the Arts Council will host a Second Friday opening reception between 5 -7 p.m. to kick off the month-long event. The public is invited to attend for a firsthand opportunity to purchase art. The event takes place at the Arts Councils 510 Museum and ARTspace, located at 510 First St. in Lake Oswego.
Artwork can be donated through Jan. 20 during museum hours, which are Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment for the duration of the show.
All ArtMart events are free and open to the public until Friday, Jan. 29.
