History of ArtWorks NW:
The Umpqua Valley Arts Association is proud to present ArtWorks NW 2017, a juried art show. This event began in 2007. It was originally titled “Hundred Valleys” to showcase the local pride in the beautiful Umpqua Valley area of Oregon. In 2012 the name changed to reflect the broader regional outreach and impact of this increasingly important venue; ArtWorks NW’s sister show PhotoWorks NW was also began in 2012. In 2015, UVAA married ArtWorks NW and PhotoWorks NW into one exhibition. We are excited to offer this call to artists as an opportunity to have their work recognized and enjoyed by the viewing public.
