Each completed drawing is available for sale as soon as it hits one of the sale walls on a first come, first served basis. Ties are settled by drawing cards (aces high). Visitors get to watch the artmaking process and excitement is generated throughout the event as drawings move from the artists’ workstations to the sale walls!

All proceeds from the Drawing Rally will go towards free public programming at the Arts Council of Lake Oswego. This includes artmaking events for kids and teens, demonstrations, and classes.

The event runs from 11am to 2:30pm in conjunction with ACLO’s annual Unveil Your Art introduction of 15 new public sculptures. I’ll be painting from 1:15-2:15pm. This should be a great warm-up for the Washington County Plein Air festival in September!
