The Buckman Art Show & Sell is a tradition in the Portland art scene. This 25-year-old arts festival features paintings, ceramics, sculptures, photography, prints, collage, mosaics, fabric and paper arts, textiles, fashion accessories, jewelry, and toys created by both established veterans and newly emerging talents in the Northwest art world. A separate gallery showcases the work of talented Buckman students and young alumni. Mouthwatering foods delight the palate, and dance and music performances by professionals as well as Buckman student groups provide entertainment for everyone. A free, supervised hands-on children’s art area, open both Friday evening and Saturday to kids age 4 and up, provides young artists the chance to create their own masterpieces while their parents shop for treasures.
Participating artists donate 30% of their proceeds from sales at the show to the Buckman Arts Focus Elementary School PTA — funds that are used to purchase art supplies, equipment, props and costumes for school performances, needed items for our arts-integrated classrooms, and more.
Please join us March 12th and 13th, 2016 for this celebration of art, and help support the award-winning arts-integrated academic program at Buckman Arts Focus Elementary School!
