97116 Art Show is a pop-up collaboration started in 2018 by artist friends April Hoff and Emily Lux. Now we have a small organizing team with Valerie pace Donely and Shiela Lesh helping, plus countless artist volunteers who make the show happen. Thank you to everyone who makes this possible!

97116 Art Show is intent on bringing a fresh view of available local art, a venue for the fringe and underrepresented, and an event the whole town and surrounding communities can look forward to each year.  Creators, we hope that even if you aren’t labeling yourself as an artist, you will submit. Community members and businesses, we would love to collaborate with you to make this just one of many impressive things Forest Grove has to offer.

Opening Reception

Opening reception is always the third Friday in November from 6-10pm with Sat & Sun exhibit hours from 12-4pm.
