The Josephy Center for Arts and Culture is excited to announce the “Art Shop Spotlight Exhibit” on display from May 13th – May 30th featuring both local and regional artists from our Art Shop.
The Art Shop provides a space for invited artists to exhibit and sell their work that is unique to Wallowa County, including work from Kathy Willett, Ted Juve, David Martin Nancy Lincoln, Anne Robinson, Barry Crawford, Tim Norman, Bob Fergison, Teri Jones, Russell Ford, Toni Marie Jones, Nancy Clark, Mary Edwards, Karyl Kolb and more. We are excited to welcome several new artists to the Art Shop: Michele Chapin (ceramics) and Verna Gonzales (jewelry).
As part of the Josephy Center’s mission to bring Native Americans back to the Wallowa County, the Art Shop highlights Native American artists’ work, including photography from Dawna VanKomen and representation by other artists. We also highlight work that extends the reach of, and compliments, our exhibits. The shop also sells books by local authors and a selection of books that relate to the Alvin Josephy, Jr. Library. In addition to art, books, and one-of a kind mixed genre artists’ works, there is a selection of Josephy Center swag: t-shirts, sweatshirts, JCAC decals, etc.
The Art Shop is always looking for new artists; please contact Gwen at [email protected] if you would like to sell your work in the Josephy Center Art Shop. The Art Shop is open during regular gallery hours Monday – Saturday 10-4 p.m.
