History of Artworks NW:
Originally titled "Hundred Valleys" when it was founded in 2007, the
exhibit showcased local pride in the beautiful Umpqua Valley area of
Oregon. In 2012 the name changed to reflect the broader regional
outreach and impact of this increasingly important venue; ArtWorks NW's
sister show PhotoWorks NW was also began in 2012. In 2015, UVAA marries
ArtWorks NW and PhotoWorks NW into one exhibition. We are excited to
offer this call to artists as an opportunity to have their work
recognized and enjoyed by the viewing public.
Artwork must have been completed within the last two years. Work must not have been previously exhibited at UVAA.
