Sitka Art Invitational Overview:

The Sitka Art Invitational is a juried art exhibition and sale held in Portland, Oregon. The event occurs annually the first full weekend of November and brings together work by over 100 nature-inspired regional artists. Art sales are split 50/50 between the artist and the Sitka Center. More than 2,000 local art collectors and enthusiasts attend the show each year.

Meet the 2021 Sitka Art Invitational Artists.

Selection Process: 

A rotating panel consisting of curators, artists, gallery workers and Sitka staff jury the Art Invitational. We showcase a diversity of art mediums including sculptures, ceramics, metalwork, glass, book arts, fiber arts, mixed media, photography, prints and paintings.
