Artists sought for Tualatin's summer art sale

Applicants are being accepted for the ArtSplash Art Show and Sale in Tualatin, the city has announced.

The Tualatin Arts Advisory Committee is looking for artists to display and sell their work this July at the Lake of the Commons.

"ArtSplash is a three-day art show that the city of Tualatin has on the Lake of the Commons every summer," explained Heidi Marx, an event specialist with the city.

This year, ArtSplash will be held from July 22 to July 24. Hours are noon to 9 p.m. July 22, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. July 23, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 24.

"It's a great event," said Marx. "Lots of great Northwest artists will be there showing."

Amenities for artists include a breakfast reception on July 23, volunteer assistance with unloading and wrapping, and water and snacks.

There will also be a Concert on the Commons performance at the plaza on July 22, a concert by Tom Grant on July 23 and a performance by the New Horizons Big Band of Tualatin on July 24, Marx said.

"There will be music going all weekend," she said.

Visual art in all mediums is eligible for ArtSplash.

This summer will mark ArtSplash's 21st year. Proceeds from ArtSplash support the public arts in Tualatin, according to the city.

Marx said the city is hoping for 50 artists at this year's show.

The deadline to apply is May 3. There is a $35 application fee. More information and an application form are available on the ArtSplash website.
