Call For Submissions: Teachers as Artists

Maryhill Museum of Art, working in partnership with Oregon Art Education Association and Washington Art Education Association, showcases TEACHER talent by inviting educators to participate in the Washington Art Education Association: Teachers as Artists-Exploring Identity, an annual juried exhibition in the MJ Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center.

This year, we are inviting regional arts educators to submit work around the theme Women of Influence. The theme engages artists to examine women who have influenced the artist’s life and/or artwork. It can be reflected through any media or style. Participants must be members of WAEA or OAEA. 

In addition to the works of art selected, jurors will also choose Best of Show, First, Second, and Third Place selections. These selections will receive a one-year Family Membership to Maryhill. During each exhibition, teachers whose work is accepted (and family and friends) will be invited to visit Maryhill Museum of Art free.
