A portion of all sales supports arts education at MAC

Multnomah Arts Center Gallery has approximately 200 linear feet with beautiful white display walls and “floating” walls for versatile art displays. As an educational instrument for our community, the MAC Gallery has been open since 1982 and has had over 300 shows. The artists who show here are residents of Oregon or Washington if they live in the immediate vicinity of Portland. We have 12 shows throughout the year with an artist reception coinciding with First Friday in Multnomah Village.

The MAC Gallery reflects the artistic dynamism of the Portland area with exhibits that emphasize the following:

  • Artists not necessarily represented by a gallery or with an art degree
  • A diverse spectrum of media, from Fibers to Metal Arts and beyond
  • Diversified subject matter, from controversial themes to the simply pleasing
  • The working process of art through repetition of a single artist or group
  • Trends in the artistic community Artwork related to current events

Though the main purpose of the Multnomah Arts Center Gallery is educational, we hope to have the shows stimulate thought and/or emotion and create some sort of reaction in the viewers who go through it.

Multnomah Arts Center’s mission is to provide high quality instruction and participation in the performing and visual arts to all interested persons, regardless of age, race, religion, ethnic origin, financial means, or level of ability. The MAC Gallery reflects this mission by paying the artist a larger commission than traditional galleries. Artists are accepted to show their work based upon a variety of criteria including artistic excellence, content, craftsmanship, professionalism, marketability, and educational value.

If you are interested in purchasing an artwork on display which is for sale, please inquire at the front office. A portion of all sales supports arts education at MAC. Read about the gallery’s 2013 renovation in the Portland Tribune.
