Call for Art: St. Johns Artwalk

Deadline February 01, 2018

In 2017 St Johns Center for Opportunity helped to connect 83 artists with the North Portland communities by planning and organizing quarterly arts events. The St. Johns ArtBurst is a series of arts engagement events connecting local artists and North Portland neighborhoods. North Portland, the “Peninsula”, and St. Johns in particular, is home to talented artists and a burgeoning art scene, and it’s time to celebrate the creative spirit of the neighborhood! With these quarterly events, we hope to

1.) increase access to and appreciation of the arts; 2.) support and strengthen the artist community in St. Johns and North Portland; 3.) engage the St. Johns business community; 4.) celebrate the diverse cultural communities in North Portland and; 5.) build community by facilitating conversations and connections. If you’re interested in getting involved to coordinate art events during these weekends, contact placemaking@stjohnsopportunity.org.

We are continuing our programming into 2018 with our first Friday’s Art Walk on March 2 where we will pair an artist (or multiple artists depending on venue size) with selected St. Johns businesses to serve as mini-galleries and we’re looking for artists!

Who we’re looking for:
Local artists (St. Johns/North Portland preferable, Portland generally)
Any medium
