November 15 – December 21, 2017

  • Reception & CAW: Thursday,  November 16, 5:30 – 8 pm
  • Brown Bag Art Talk, Thursday, November 30 at 12 noon
  • CAW Thursday, December 21, (4 – 8 pm),  “de-construction” of an exhibit, pick up of unsold work

Professional and emerging artists exhibit together, in a community-wide themed show and celebration of the season, also creating unique artistic gift possibilities.

Consider the box. We humans employ it in seemingly endless ways. 

Marvel in how 60+ artists have expanded on the Box theme at The Arts Center. A Festive Opening Reception will be held during the November Corvallis Art Walk (CAW), as fitting for this time of the year.

The artists have interpreted the object of the box in myriad ways. Some of the boxes address serious subject matters. Some are functional, while others are entirely for enjoyment. Many gives great opportunity to surprise a loved one with a truly unique gift. The exhibit ends before gift giving begins, with plenty of time for you to wrapt it and put it under a tree if that is part of your tradition.
