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 Teachers as Artists, an annual juried exhibition in the museum’s M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center.

In 2021 we are inviting regional arts educators to submit work around the theme CONNECTIONS. The exhibition brings focus to people, places, or things that have connected our lives during this past year. From memorable moments in the past to future dreams of trips and reunions; from the people we have missed to the people who make our lives beautiful, art educators will explore their vision of “Connections” through multiple media. Participants must be members of WAEA or OAEA. 

Exhibitions will be presented at Maryhill Museum of Art or online via our website. 

In addition to the works of art selected for inclusion, jurors will also choose Best of Show, First, Second, and Third Place selections. Artists recognized by 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 of charge.
