The Visual Arts Committee of Orcas Center is planning the 2024 season and is pleased to welcome back Featured Artist Exhibits!

Featured Artists at Orcas Center have dedicated displays in the lobby and/or Madrona Room (depending on scope of work, or if we have multiple artists exhibiting together), and give either a demonstration or presentation during the art opening event. Full marketing for the event and exhibit include press releases, social media posts, as well as regular mentions in the weekly Orcas Center newsletter.

To be considered as a featured artist, please submit a digital portfolio (minimum 3-5 images), artistic resume and/or statement by October 31st, 2023.

Applicants will be juried by the VAC, who may then request to see work in person – either by traveling to your studio, or having you bring selected work to Orcas Center for review.

Please note: We are only considering artists who live and work on Orcas at this time.

We will also have a number of Community Shows (non-juried) in 2024 as well.

Community Shows are open to any island artist, beginning and experienced alike!
