Art community to celebrate Oakridge gallery opening

Share this article

The Oakridge Art Council is inviting the public to celebrate the grand opening of its gallery on Saturday, Feb. 12.

The event, which is being promoted as a Valentine’s celebration, will be held from noon to 8 p.m. in spacious new quarters at 48523 Industrial Park Way, which is about a quarter-mile east of Greenwaters Park on Highway 58.

Refreshments will be served and COVID-19 procedures will apply during the open house, which occurs two days before the official holiday.

“Art is love, and Valentine’s week is a good time to share it,” said Rene Gobelman, art council chairperson. She also invited the public to visit the gallery on weekends when it is open from noon to 5 p.m. The work of more than a dozen Westfir and Oakridge artists is on display.

The art council complex is much more spacious than it appears from the street. Offices, meeting rooms and workshop areas are located beyond the main gallery.

The OAC, as the council calls itself, is among a handful of enterprises that lease space in the building, which is part of the Oakridge Industrial Park and is owned by the City of Oakridge.

The council exists to stage “art walks” that celebrate local artists who pair with local businesses to showcase their artwork.
