Join us at the Oregon State Fair this summer!
For 11 days — from the last week of August through the first week in September — the Willamette Art Center sponsors the Artisans’ Village at the Oregon State Fair where artists and craftspeople vend their unique wares. We offer visitors an opportunity to paint a pot, have it raku fired, and pick it up within a few hours. This is the WAC’s main fundraiser of the year. It’s extremely popular and we always hear, “This is our family tradition” and “We paint a pot every year at the fair!”
