2020 Azalea Festival-

For now, we will continue to plan as if it is and be in touch as things develop. Think of this time of social distancing as time to be creative – even if you can’t show your art during the show there will be future opportunities in the gallery.
Scheduled show dates are Memorial Day weekend, May 23-24, at a new location; Brookings Harbor High School Gym. Registration deadline is April 25, before you receive the next newsletter. In-person registration at Manley Art Center will be April 24 and 25 from 11AM-4PM. Mail-in registrations are encouraged. No late registrations will be accepted. Applications are available at Manley Art Center, Wright's Gallery, Crescent Harbor Gallery, and on line at .
Consider entering art in the show - many people visit so your art gets great visibility. There will be 4 classes of adult art and 3 classes of youth art with awards given for 2-D art, computer generated art including photography, and 3-D art. The major requirement for art entered in the show is that it must be original in concept, design and execution. Size limitation - Height 48" - Width 36".  $525 in prize money will be awarded. Thanks to award donors, Wright’s Custom Framing & Art Supplies, Linda & Robert Beaudry, and donations in memory of Pat Stewart.  
In order to put on a show of this size, we need lots of volunteer help. Sign-up sheets will be available at Manley Art Center in April. Helping at the Art Show is a great way to meet fellow members. A short list of tasks follows; please consider how you would like to be involved. We just need a couple hours of your time. Registration at Manley - 4/24 & 25, Set-up the show - Evening of 5/22, Greeting visitors during the show - 5/23 & 24, Demonstrating your art at the show - 5/23 & 24, Take down the show - Sunday afternoon 5/24
If you have questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Cilde Grover at 541-412-8388 or or send an email to

Festival of Art in Stout Park-

We are all aware that COVID-19 has created hardships for many of you who rely on events such as ours for income. Some of you have already experienced events being cancelled. Others of you are concerned about even venturing out this year to do shows. 

We at PBAA believe supporting the Arts and our community is important. We want to do what we can to help. At this point, we have gone over our budget and are willing to forgo any profits from our event to offer you the following.

Each vendor who attends will receive a $30 food credit at a popular local restaurant upon checking in and setting up. This credit will not only help you offset some costs but, help a local business who was forced to close. It's a win-win offer! You get a great meal and help out a local establishment.

In addition, we are extending the deadline for entry to May 15th. This will give you a little extra time to submit and hopefully have a better feeling about how things shake out with COVID-19.

Of course, if we still find ourselves forced to cancel the Festival of Art in Stout Park, a full refund of your vendor fees will be promptly mailed to you.
