A Gathering Place for the Arts in Wallowa County

Saturday, April 18th
10 AM – 4 PM

Josephy Center for Arts & Culture


Update: We are sorry to inform the public that this exhibit is cancelled due to the coronavirus. 


This exciting annual event features a wonderful display of artwork, lots of awards ribbons, hands-on activities, and musical performances by area youths. The show was first initiated in 1989 by local photographer Doris Woempner, and has been chaired over the years by several tireless youth-art supporters including, Joan Madsen and, from 2009 to 2015, Leah Johnson and Will Roundy. For the past five years, Maria Were, who lives in Lostine and works for Building Healthy Families, has led the show. The Wallowa Valley Arts Council proudly sponsors the Youth Arts Festival each year and applauds the many volunteers who work so hard to bring us this fun-filled extravaganza.
