It’s that time of year again and the Columbian Artists Association 42nd Annual Spring Art Show will open for entries Monday, March 5th and the show will open Saturday, March 10th-25th, open daily 11am to 5pm. The Show is again being held at the Three Rivers Mall, Kelso, Washington. Opening reception is Saturday, March 5th, from 2 to 4pm, with awards presentation at 3pm. Refreshments will be served. This is an opportunity to drop by and meet some of the talented area artists from seven regional counties.

The Art Show will occupy a spacious storefront near Macy’s. The space is open and light, presenting an ideal venue for displaying the multi-faceted talent of regional artists. It’s an inviting area drawing many people in to appreciate the talent. Last year the show included over 40 artists displaying approximately 100 paintings. Last year the show expanded to include three-dimensional art. It is a judged and juried show with cash awards presented in each of several categories.

In addition, sponsor awards are presented by local businesses and organizations. People attending the show will be able to vote for their favorite painting, and the “peoples’ choice” award will be presented at the end of the show on March 25th @ 3pm. Be a part of the local art scene and cast your vote for that favorite art piece!

The Columbian Artists Association is pleased to present Janis Newton as this year’s featured artist. An artist since 1965, Newton taught high school Art for 29 years; three years in Hillsboro, OR and twenty-six years in Longview, WA.

“My main medias are oil painting, sculpture and photography. I am drawn mostly to human form and how light works on my subjects. I have been in several one-person exhibitions and many juried shows,” said Newton.

Entries for the Show will be accepted Monday, March 5th, 10am to 5pm, at the show location in the Three Rivers Mall. Open to artists 18 years and older from Cowlitz, Clark, Wahkiakum, Lewis and Pacific Counties in Washington; and Clatsop and Columbia counties in Oregon.
