Johnson Creek Art Show
CALL TO ARTISTS
For more information, contact Marty Urman (firstname.lastname@example.org) The 3rd Annual Johnson Creek Art Show will provide artists an opportunity to display and share their Johnson Creek Watershed inspired artwork from September-October 2012. The Show is part of the Council’s larger, month-long Johnson Creek Days watershed awareness event which includes activities such as a children’s educational fair, a fun run, a family bike ride, and more. Theme: Artwork inspired by Johnson Creek and its watershed. Our goals are to educate the public through art about what a watershed is, to engage people in an appreciation of Johnson Creek, and to inspire artists and non-artists to look at the watershed from a different perspective. Artwork may be any medium or style, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, fiber, glass, drawing and mixed media. Dates: September 7-October 12 at Reed College Vollum Lounge (3203 SE Woodstock Blvd, Portland, Oregon). Artists are responsible for delivering their piece(s) to Reed College Vollum Lounge on Thursday, September 6 from 12-3pm. Artists are responsible for picking up their piece(s) on Friday October 12 from 4-6pm. Artwork not picked up may be removed by JCWC. Artists are encouraged to attend the First Friday Artists Reception on Friday, September 7 from 6-8pm. Space will be available for artist’s statements and contact information throughout the show. Sales: Inquiries will be directed to the artist. Reed College and Johnson Creek Watershed Council can not handle or be in any way involved with any sales of artwork. Johnson Creek Watershed Council will direct all sales inquires to artists. Though not required, artists are encouraged to donate 10% of any sales to JCWC. Plein Air Sessions: July 7 and August 4. Plein air sessions with guest artists will be held on Saturday mornings from 10-12am at Johnson Creek Park (July 7) and at Gresham Main City Park (August 4). Artists are encouraged to submit pieces created during these sessions and are also encouraged to work in other locations.

Supplemental Information for Artists
What is a watershed? A watershed includes all land that rain, ground and surface water moves across on the way to a common destination, whether it is a stream, lake, river or ocean. This means that anywhere you stand is part of a watershed; in any neighborhood where you live, work, garden, or park your car. Boundaries of a watershed are determined by the shape of the land that surrounds them. Since water runs downstream, buttes and mountain ranges often form the boundaries of watersheds. Johnson Creek Watershed facts: • Johnson Creek is 26 miles long • The watershed is 52 square miles • Its headwaters are in Damascus, and its confluence with the Willamette River is in Milwaukie • Johnson Creek flows through 5 cities (Portland, Gresham, Milwaukie, Happy Valley and Damascus) and 2 counties (Multnomah and Clackamas) • Johnson Creek is home to threatened fish species including steelhead trout and coho and chinook salmon. Many bird species live in the watershed. Other wildlife include salamanders, turtles and frogs. • The Johnson Creek Watershed Council was formed in the 1980s by a group of citizens concerned about the health of the creek, then later incorporated as a 501(c)3 non profit in 1994. Locations of interest in the Johnson Creek Watershed: • Johnson Creek Park (Paint Out July 7) • Leach Botanical Garden (Photo Workshop July 21) • Gresham Main City Park (Paint Out August 4) • Tideman Johnson Natural Area • Powell Butte Nature Park • Brookside Wetland • Beggar’s Tick Wildlife Refuge • Gresham Woods • Butler Creek Greenway • East Buttes including Jenne Butte, Gresham Butte, and Gabbert Hill • Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden • Reed Lake and Reed Canyon at Reed College Campus • Crystal Springs Creek • Westmoreland Park • Eastmoreland Golf Course • Springwater Corridor Trail, 15 miles from SE 17th Avenue in Sellwood to Boring • Tributary creeks such as Kelley Creek, Sunshine Creek, Veterans Creek, Hogan Creek Visit us at www.jcwc.org: To learn more about Johnson Creek, the Council and other Johnson Creek Days events, visit our website or call 503-652-7477.
