More than 100 established and emerging artists and craftspersons presenting a range of media and styles will be selected for the 19th annual Buckman Art Show & Sell. Artists—both professional and Buckman students—receive 70% of their proceeds, with the remaining 30% directly supporting Buckman’s art education programming. Thanks to the outstanding work of local artists and volunteers, last year’s artist sales grossed more than $63,000!
In 1989, Buckman Arts Magnet Elementary School became Portland's only public school with an arts-centered curriculum. Students attending Buckman receive weekly drama, art, music, and dance classes that encourage artistic and academic growth. The Buckman Art Show & Sell provides an exciting opportunity for students to envision and develop their own creative futures.
