2017 Artist’s Workshop Annual Show & Sale

Art Presence Art Center is delighted to host the 2016 Artist’s Workshop Annual Show & Sale, the talented group’s 33rd annual show. The Artist’s Workshop is a group of artists who paint together en plein air during fair weather and in the studio during winter months. Starting as a small group of Jacksonville artists, Artist’s Workshop has grown to 40 artist members from throughout the Rogue Valley. Each year the group presents the best work of their artists at their annual show and sale.

The 2017 Artist’s Workshop Annual Show & Sale opens August 4, 2016 and continues through Sunday, August 27. Art Presence Art Center’s gallery will be open for you to view the exhibition from 11am–5pm every Friday through Sunday…four weekends of fine art to enjoy and select for your own home or office! This year’s show includes works by many strong artists who are seasoned professionals, some who have been painting for over forty years.

For each year’s show, the group’s members vote to choose the painting that will grace their promotional poster. Last year’s winning painting was “Rogue River,” a contemporary landscape in oil by Laura Kolding. Paintings by long time members Steve Bennett, Kim Faucher, and Sue Bennett placed second and third. We will update this post with this year’s winners as information becomes available.


Art Presence and the Artist’s Workshop invite you to a festive reception for the artists on Saturday, August 5 from 3–6pm. This is always a great time to discuss their work with the artists and to meet artists whom you do not yet know. We hope you will join us to celebrate this year’s fine art and the artists who create it!
