For several years, Maryhill Museum of Art has worked in partnership with Oregon Art Education Association and Washington Art Education Association to showcase teacher talent through juried exhibitions in the museum’s 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. 

The museum will present two exhibitions – one featuring Washington arts educators and one with Oregon arts educators.


Teachers as Artists: WAEA Members
Submissions will be accepted between February 13 and February 28. To submit work, click here.
Washington teachers exhibition runs April 14 to May 26, 2020 at Maryhill and at the Tacoma Art Museum from June 11 to mid-July 2020.

Teachers as Artists: OAEA Members
Submissions will be accepted later this year. Please check back for more information.
Oregon teachers exhibition runs October 3 to November 15, 2020 at Maryhill Museum of Art.
