2018 Art Show


Contemporary, Representational, Two-Dimensional Art & Sculpture

September 14 – October 27, 2018

Apply to be part of the show at onlinejuriedshows.com.


About the Favell Museum: For nearly 5 decades the Favell Museum has protected and preserved some of the nation’s finest Native American artifacts and contemporary Western art – including paintings by Charles Russell, John Clymer, and Frank McCarthy. Last year, thousands of people visited what America’s Byways magazine called “one of the three best such museums in the United States.” The museum founders hosted nationally acclaimed art shows from 1973–2001. The private museum eventually became a non-profit. In 2013 the tradition of supporting and promoting exceptional artists was proudly renewed. The museum art show (fundraiser) is held in the Fall, a busy time for visitorship to the Favell Museum – enhanced by tourism to nearby Crater Lake National Park.


Favell Museum Art Show & Sale: The annual exhibition will highlight original, contemporary, representational art by 32 artists, including oil, pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media. Up to four bronze and wood sculptors will be accepted into the show. The exhibition features landscape, plein-air, western, figure, still life, wildlife, historical art, and more, in a variety of artistic styles.
