Fine Arts Festival Moves to Marylhurst

Excerpt from an article by Patrick Malee in the Lake Oswego Review, May 30, 2013.

The West Linn Fine Arts Festival will return for its 14th annual go-round on Aug. 3 and 4, this time at a new home on the Marylhurst University campus.

The festival was previously held at Willamette Park, but organizers decided to move it to Marylhurst this year to make attendance more convenient.

"The move, as I understand it, is to be more centrally located to the two largest communities that attend — West Linn and Lake Oswego," said event spokeswoman KC Cowan. "Marylhurst is perfectly situated between them both and, because it's on Highway 43, it is also a great location for anyone passing by who might be interested."

Parking this year will be available across the Marylhurst campus, with a free shuttle bus running between the parking areas and booth setups.

A consistent draw for families out of West Linn, Lake Oswego, Portland and Vancouver, Wash., the West Linn Fine Arts Festival offers more than 90 booths featuring original artwork. Artists must submit applications for a booth, and then a jury panel reviews the work before deciding whether to accept it for the festival.

"We're really excited," Cowan said. "We have a really good range of art, too, everything from sculpture, ceramics, paintings, mixed media, fiber art and jewelry."
