Visual Arts Week 2022

August 5-12

Visual Arts Week celebrates the visual arts and provides a platform for experimentation, creativity and dialogue. This year’s offerings include a mix of in-person and virtual experiences for participation at all levels.

Visit in-person and virtual galleries to enjoy the diverse creations from our community’s artists. Learn about the inspiration and process behind artworks and exhibitions created in the last year through Lane Arts Council's ArtTalks. Tour satellite art installations displayed in downtown windowfronts and revisit our city’s 20x21 murals. Expand your artistic skills in educational workshops provided by the Maude Kerns Art Center with seasoned artists from our community. Celebrate exceptional emerging artists of our region with the 2022 Eugene Biennial at Karin Clarke Gallery.

Art is a shared interaction, cultural exchange, and a powerful communication that compels us to think, feel and connect. Celebrate the visual arts with us!
