The show must go on! For the past 24 years, the Art In The Pearl Fine Arts & Craft Festival has been a community event set in the North Park Blocks of Portland’s Pearl District on Labor Day Weekend. However, with the outbreak of COVID-19 and ongoing restrictions for large gatherings, virtual events have become the only way forward in 2020. Therefore, the volunteer board of Art In The Pearl is creating a digital experience to bring the festival to life online.
This event will feature 120 juried artists with images of their artwork, their bio, contact information and online links for purchasing their work. Because Art In The Pearl is an educational non-profit, the online experience will also feature videos of artist demonstrations in their studios and stay-at-home art projects for the whole family to create. It wouldn’t be the same without dance and music performances, so a lineup of videos will also be included. This online show can be viewed online at: www.artinthepearl.com/
