The Artists Workshop 34th Annual Show and Sale opens Friday, August 3, at 10 am at Art Presence Art Center, located at the corner of 5th and D St in Jacksonville, Oregon. A special reception for the artists takes place on Saturday, August 4, from 2–5 pm. Admission to the show and reception is free.

The group is comprised of passionate, accomplished artists who capture local landscapes, historical buildings, flowers, still lifes, abstracts and other subjects using oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, print-making, encaustic, mixed media, ink and more. Members include award-winning collected artists who may also teach art classes and workshops.

Participants in this year’s show are Raye Aubin, Susan Austin, Steve Bennett, Sue Bennett, Katy Cauker, Peter Coons, Susan DeRosa, Rick Evans, Kim Faucher, Marilyn Hurst, Jeanne LaRae, Jean Mailander, Kirsten Meriwether, Carolyn Roberts, Desmond Serratore, and David William Terry.

The group was founded in 1979 by Jacksonville artist Elaine Witteveen. Each year new members join the group. Anyone is welcome to join in the plein air paintouts. Paintouts take place on Fridays during spring, summer and fall (weather permitting) on location in preselected spots around the Rogue Valley. May of these plain air paintings are exhibited in this year’s show.

In addition to original framed pieces, an assortment of unframed, matted original art will be available, as well as prints. Those who purchase art may take it with them – no waiting for the shows’ end! The show is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in August form 10 am to 5 pm. The show closes on Sunday, August 26.
