Program Description

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego is pleased to invite submissions of up to three works of art for outdoor public display in Lake Oswego’s nationally recognized, award-winning outdoor Gallery Without Walls exhibit. In its twentieth year, this program’s mission is to integrate art into the daily lives of local residents and visitors to the community by presenting works from regional, national, and international artists that resonate with people of diverse backgrounds.

Artists can submit completed works as well as proposals for new works to be completed by installation in August of 2020. Artwork will be on display throughout the downtown business district for a two-year exhibition period starting in the summer of 2020 and ending in the summer of 2022. Submissions will be evaluated by a Selection Committee based upon the overall quality and merit of the proposed art works. Submissions from all emerging, mid-career, established and collaborations of artists are encouraged. We seek works of a variety of media including sculpture, new media, projections, murals and encourage proposals that engage, educate and inspire the community. Submissions of artwork that has been created within the last three years is highly encouraged.

Up to fifteen artists will be chosen by the Selection Committee to display in Lake Oswego. Selected artists will be awarded an honorarium of $1000. Selected artists are also eligible for an annual People’s Choice purchase award of up to $20,000 (with a 30% gallery fee). Selected artists are invited to attend the annual Gallery Without Walls Celebration in September. This is a community celebration premiering the new sculptures and recognizing our artists and all who support this wonderful program. Selected artists will enter into a two-year contract with the City of Lake Oswego for the exhibition loan period. During the exhibition period, works will be available for sale with a 30% gallery fee, if sold, paid to the Arts Council.
