October Cultural Art & Tasting Walk Event

Art On Broadway Gallery is a host business along with eleven other old town businesses and Beaverton High School for a cultural art walk event sponsored by the Beaverton Downtown Association and the Beaverton Arts Commission during the month of October. The event features two components - a month long exhibit in our gallery, & an art walk on October 14.

The gallery exhibit will feature a piece of cultural-themed art by a number of area artists from October 3 through October 28, and will host an artists reception for this exhibit on Saturday, October 14, from 5 to 8 p.m. Ruby Vineyards will be on hand to offer wine tasting at the gallery. The artists represented in the exhibit are: Rebecca Benoit (photography),  Michele Bufton (acrylic), Lorraine Bushek (oil), Scott Cutler (mixed media), Mehrdokht  Darabi (painted wood), Kathryn Delaney (digital painting), Lynn Deal (fiber), Karen Doyle (oil), Susan Greenbaum (encaustic), Kirk Jones (photography), Phyllis Meyer (mixed media collage), Dee Rommel (acrylic), Barb Sedgwick (metal sculpture), Sharon Segal (acrylic), Suzanne Tyler (fused glass), and Anne Price Yates (acrylic)

The art walk from 2-6 pm on October 14 will be the first of its kind, and will partner each of the artists participating in the gallery's show with one of the following old town businesses: Art On Broadway Gallery, Beaverton Bakery, Beaverton Kia, Beaverton Sub Station, Big O's Pizza, Bootleggers Whiskey Bar, Clockwork Rose Tea House, Cozy Ground Coffee, Ichabod's Tavern, Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage, Rose City Modern, and The Rise at Old Town. Each location will also offer a complimentary "tasty" treat during the walk. Beaverton High School is another site on the map and will feature artwork by their student artists. The artists will set up their own temporary "gallery" within each business and offer their work for viewing and for sale. 

To begin the walk, visitors should pick up an event Passport (which includes a map) at any one of the twelve locations plus the high school, ask each location you visit to stamp your Passport, visit all thirteen locations and get thirteen stamps, then turn your Passport in at the final location. A completed Passport qualifies you for a drawing of prizes worth over $800. Prizes have been donated by Arthur Murray Dance Studio, Peddlers Pack, and The Vault vintage clothing store, as well as the twelve host businesses mentioned above. The drawing will be held at Art On Broadway Gallery at 6:30 pm that evening.
