Creative Spirits Gallery Submission Process
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; we select and show artists based on talent and connection to the theme of the year.
We review new artist submissions and typically add eight to ten new artists each season, some years more, some years less.
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 2 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 will be arranged with the artists. 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. 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.
