A Note about Juries and Jurying
We all know how difficult it can be to jury into a show, especially the first time. The thought of entering a juried show can be intimidating, but don't let that stop you. If it turns out that you aren't accepted, always remember it is only one opinion and the jury for ARTrails (and most other shows) change annually. What one jury doesn't accept another may love, so keep improving, keep working, keep creating and keep applying. Keep in mind that if you haven't been turned down at least once by a jury, you probably aren't pushing yourself enough.

Now is the time to make plans for ARTrails 2017 Annual Studio Tour.
ARTrails is working with other arts and community organizations to make your 2017 visit even better. We will be adding other events and "happenings" as we get closer to the Open Studio Tour.
Make your plans now to spend a delightful fall weekend driving through the region’s historic communities and meandering along back roads while enjoying wonderful art, talking to the artists and watching them at work in their studios. Gather a carload of friends, share the gas, see how and where the artists work, find your favorite pieces of art and discover Southwest Washington.
The 2017 tour will open with the Gala Reception on Friday, September 15th, at the Exhibition Gallery in downtown Centralia’s Historic Train Depot (210 Railroad Avenue, Centralia WA).
