Welcome to the Ridgefield Art Association!
We are a non-profit community arts group organized under the Department of Corporations, State of Washington. Our association philosophy and a policy of open membership encourage self-expression through the visual arts, but we fully support all the Arts, including performance, literature, media, dance, music, graphic design, language arts, film/video and theater. We believe that the Arts are an essential part of any thriving community, lift the spirit and raise the collective consciousness of citizens. Our big event is our annual spring art exhibit and show generally held the first weekend of May.
Congratulations to the following people, who won awards at the 2013 Ridgefield Art Association show:
Three Honorable Mentions for three dimensional work: Cyndi Rivers for ‘Green Leaf Set,’ Patricia Thompson for ‘Raven’, and Bruce Crockett for ‘Apple with Worm Hole.’ Third Prize in three dimensional work went to Lara Tetz for ‘Firescape,’ Second Prize to Bill Bishop for ‘Pintail Hen Duck,’ and First Prize to Ric Knox for Turned ‘Vessel.’
In the two dimensional contest, there were also three Honorable Mentions: Cheryl Hazen for ‘Trout,’ Marj Casswell, and Kathy Winters for ‘Ridgefield Kayak Boathouse.’ Third Prize in two dimensional work went to Ron Jones for ‘Accoladic Arch,’ Second Prize to Beth Kitselman for ‘Tree of Life,’ and First Prize to Chris Bidleman for ‘Owl.’
OUR MISSION DETAILED...
We collaborate with artists and other arts organizations in an effort to facilitate mutual support, recognition, and the exchanging of ideas. We work to encourage an inclusive community of artists and the full appreciation of art within Ridgefield and the greater Clark County/Southwest Washington region. We facilitate art exhibits, art sales, classes, lectures, performances and other events in an effort to enrich the lives of all citizens locally.
The Ridgefield Art Association strives to unleash the artistic potential of every community member, but particularly to inspire the hearts and minds of our talented youth through an annual art grant/scholarship.
