SALEM — Artists who exhibit or sell their work and maintain a consistent artistic practice are invited to submit their information for a statewide artist registry.

The Oregon Arts Commission, in partnership with The Ford Family Foundation, is building the list to increase access to funding programs and build a case for greater professional artist resources. This could include everyone from painters and photographers exhibiting in galleries to people making jewelry or tie-dyed T-shirts to sell at fairs and farmers markets — and everything in between.

To register, visit For questions, contact ​​Carrie Kikel at or 503-480-5360.


Contact community writer Tammy Malgesini at or 541-564-4539.
