How has the afterlife inspired your present life?
Art in Oregon works to build bridges between artists and communities. This autumn we’re seeking to extend that bridge beyond the veil. The Ghost Show is your opportunity to show us what haunts you. What ghosts lurk in your attic? What chains rattle the hallways of your mind? How has the paranormal influenced your work?
About the Exhibit Space
Art in Oregon established the Mary Elizabeth Gallery in collaboration with the Stevens-Crawford Heritage House Museum in Oregon City. Artists chosen will have their work displayed in a home built in 1908 by prominent real estate investors Harley Stevens and his wife, Mary Elizabeth. The house was restored to much of its original Edwardian splendor through donations of furnishings and textiles. A visit to the Stevens-Crawford Heritage House Museum will transfer you back to Progressive Era inventions and innovations. It’s also probably haunted. The Mary Elizabeth Gallery can accommodate most artwork sizes. This call is open to all mediums. We welcome modern takes on ghosts as well as traditional themes!
