From its inception as a small art auction and wine-tasting event, Art and the Vineyard has grown into the premier art and wine festival in the Southern Willamette Valley. The festival, which is the principal fundraiser for the Maude Kerns Art Center, attracts over 20,000 visitors annually. Monies raised from the festival help fund the Art Center’s year-round exhibitions and art classes in all media for children, teens, and adults.
This year, we're looking for some artists' work to be featured in our special attractions area. 6 sculptures and installations will be displayed throughout the festival, with the intention to create a more interactive environment for festival guests. Installations that create shade or activate natural shade are preferred, but not necessary. Each artist or art team will receive a stipend of $200, and will be included on our website, print, and social media publications.
