Creative Spirits Gallery Submission Process

Artists Wanted

We believe our building is a community space to be shared and utilized. As a church we are determined to support emerging and well-established artists and to give their work exposure. Like our faith community, our facility is unique and not traditional. Our gallery, Creative Spirits, in truth, is a perfect gallery space to exhibit and celebrate art.

Submission Time Frame
All artwork submitted is reviewed by our curatorial panel and kept on file to be considered for each upcoming exhibition. Creative Spirits does not charge an exhibition fee to artists to show their work.

Final Decision
We review new artist submissions regularly and typically have three artists exhibiting their work every quarter.

We are thankful for the interest from all the artists who would like to show their artwork at our gallery! Those invited to participate in our exhibitions will be contacted via email about the exhibit schedule for the year, to confirm their participation, and to arrange an orientation visit to the gallery.

Exhibition Time Frame
Most exhibitions at Creative Spirits are for 3 months and include more than one artist. This is another unique quality of Creative Spirits – the opportunity to collaborate with other artists in a variety of mediums in creating a unique gallery for the community. An artists’ reception can be arranged if desired. Art works for sale or not-for-sale are both accepted.

Artists are encouraged to offer classes or workshops during the time their art is displayed. The artist will also have an opportunity to conduct a Walk Around one time during their exhibition.

Our space also is available for special events or business meetings that the artist may want to conduct. We can provide amenities such as kitchen, projector, tables and chairs. For more information contact the church office.

Creative Spirits Gallery is located in West Linn Lutheran Church at 20390 Willamette Drive, West Linn, OR 97068.
