This year, the Lake Oswego Festival of Arts is so excited to return to the community after COVID-19; it's been named "Reemerge." The festival has expanded to include unique art exhibits and demos for everyone to enjoy.
Located at Lakewood Center and George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego, Oregon, the art festival has four major exhibits and over fifty artist exhibitions this year.
At George Rogers Park, outdoor booths will be set up to feature artists' work including artwork from all mediums, and for purchase. Meander through the tents, talk with the artists, and enjoy some aesthetic eye candy. And if something catches your eye that you can't live without, you can buy it from the artist.
The festival also includes an Art Demo on June 25th, 10 am-4 pm, and June 26th, 10 am-2 pm. Watch live demonstrations in a variety of mediums! This Art Demo will be held on the deck in front of Lakewood Center for the Arts.
Or enjoy a "Drink and Draw" Sunday, June 26th, 2:30 pm-4:30 pm for $25. Artist and retired educator, Allen Schmertzler, will lead you to draw in caricature while drinking some fine wine.
Enjoy the four major exhibits in the Lakewood Center:
- The Dee Denton Gallery: Five selected artists show their work post-pandemic.
- The Artist's Vision: A mixed media show of 2- and 3-dimensional artwork.
- Soundscape: featuring all types of artists with a unique sound experience.

Several food vendors will be there, including a beer and wine tent.
