Portland Audubon’s Wild Arts Festival
December 11, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until December 11, 2022
The Wild Arts Festival returns for its 42nd Annual fundraiser as the Northwest’s premier show and sale of nature-related art and books, with proceeds benefiting Portland Audubon’s education and conservation efforts.
The timing of the event this year with new dates – December 10 & 11 – positions the festival as the perfect place to find unique holiday gifts, with thousands of hand-crafted works made by local artists items to choose from. So much about the weekend is what locals love about Portland!
The Wild Arts Festival showcases more than 60 artists including jewelry designers, painters, printmakers and sculptors, plus glass, wood, fiber art and ceramic artists. The beautifully diverse artistic media are aligned in their inspiration, drawing from:
• Nature or wildlife as a subject,
• Natural materials as medium, or
• Art promoting environmental sustainability
Meet your favorite artists & authors
Art & books inspire us all, and one of the favorite features of WAF is the opportunity to meet the artists and authors and talk with them about their backgrounds and craft. Dedicated signing times are scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday from 12 – 4PM where attendees can get their purchased books autographed. We will offer book signings with multiple children’s authors.
