The artists groups included in the 2020 rotation are North Clackamas Christian School of Oregon City with a display of pastels and Sandy-Hoodland Library photography group showing photographs.

The Artist Exhibit Program began more than 18 years ago and continues to provide local artists an opportunity to showcase and sell their artwork commission free. Over the years the Arts Alliance has offered workshops for artists that include technical training and assistance and other educational opportunities.

“This program allows me to exhibit in a venue widely visited by thousands of people,” said AEP participant Cheryl Butterfield. “The venues are perfect to show my work in the best light and space. It is most professional, and to have no commission to pay for the sale of work is just the best for an emerging artist.”
