Have you heard the saying “the cobbler’s children are often the ones with no shoes?” In many ways, art teachers exemplify this adage, working long and hard to bring out the best in their students, often at the expense of their own creative pursuits.

Working in partnership with Oregon Art Education Association and Washington Art Education Association, we invite current and retired art educators (who are members of either organization) to participate in a juried exhibition in our MJ Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center Gallery.

Washington teachers will be featured May 5 to June 22, 2018 and Oregon teachers from October 1 to November 15, 2018. Submit online here.
