Soulflags Art Community Center is proud to announce its Local Artists talent Search.  Artist members from the Oregon City community and surrounding areas are invited to showcase their talents and submit their work to a panel of local judges.  We anticipate a broad and enthusiastic response to this event, featuring many talented artists from our area. The contest begins 12:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (“PST”) on July 1, 2021 and ends 5:00 p.m. PST on July 30, 2021 (“Contest Period”).


This is a local competition and artists from throughout the Oregon City and surrounding area are sought for this competition and art exhibit. Visual art mediums are limited to paintings and drawings (no sculptures, photography, collage, metal work, glass work or video and sound art). Artwork must include an added Oregon City twist, an icon or landmark of Oregon City.  Please keep in mind that nudity and profanity are not appropriate for this particular contest.  Our art center is art education focused providing history and related art projects associated with past and current artists; therefore we recommend recreating a well known image as your background (see Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh example).  However, we understand artists and want artists to express themselves freely – therefore we have included that the chosen artist will have the option to become our Art Centers ARTIST OF THE MONTH where we create a 15 to 20 min video of your history and art creations – THEN we create art projects using similar techniques to your art styles!


The Contest is open to any local artist from the Oregon City and surrounding area.  Art must be original, created by the person who enters that work. Each artist may submit 1 piece of art for consideration.
