Call for Artists Extended

The deadline for applications has been extended to 
6 p.m., Friday, October 18

"Since the selection committee isn't able to meet until late October, we've decided to keep accepting applications," said Sheila Martinson, President.  "And, we hope it expands our choices for shows and brings in more new artists as well."

 Martinson added, "Tell your artist friends!  Encourage them to apply."

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.
