(Hillsboro, Oregon.) – On Tuesday, December 3, the Walters Cultural Arts Center (527 East Main Street, Hillsboro) opens a new gallery exhibit “Homecoming,” an exhibition of works gathered by celebrated Hillsboro educator Judy Vogland from over twenty former Hillsboro High School students. The featured graduates, who graduated between 1971 and 2001, have gone on to diverse and exciting creative careers in animation, games, jewelry design, illustration, architecture, and more. “Homecoming” is a celebration of the power of arts education and community, showcasing the talents of artists working all over America who found their artistic start in Hillsboro. The opening reception for this exhibit will be as part of First Tuesday Art Walk from 5-8 p.m. with light refreshments provided with thanks to our supporting sponsor, Decadent Creations.
The opening reception also takes place in conjunction with the 2nd Annual Walters Artisan Pop-up Shop, where more than 40 local artists will have original, hand-crafted artwork and crafts available for purchase. Find the perfect, unique item—for a gift or for yourself—while supporting artists working in your community. The Pop-up Shop is free to attend and all proceeds from sales go directly to the artists.
