Call for Artists - Deadline Approaching

Second Story Gallery in Camas is seeking artists interested in displaying their work during monthly shows being scheduled for 2014 and January 2015.

The deadline for applications is Monday, Sept. 9 at 5 p.m.

Over the past decade the gallery has presented monthly exhibits of pottery, weaving, woodworking, collage, cut paper silhouettes, and handmade books as well as paintings and photography. The non-profit gallery, upstairs in the Camas Public Library, is known for promoting local, often undiscovered artists.  The high-traffic space boasts a professional hanging system and directional track lighting also found in some of the world’s most famous art museums.  

Second Story Gallery participates in the First Friday Art Walks held in downtown Camas.  Gallery volunteers work with the featured artist to unveil each monthly show with a reception on that night that is free and open to the public.  The exhibit then remains on display through the last week of the month.  The gallery is open to the public during regular library hours, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The gallery’s board of governors will review artists this fall with the goal of filling openings from February of 2014 through January of 2015.  The selection process should be completed and applicants notified by the end of this year.
