Previous WOW! Shows
WOW! presented its first fine art exhibition
in September of 2010 entitled “Painting Our Passion.”
Held at The Tualatin Heritage Center, the show included over 20 artists and approximately 150 original paintings. It was written up in the Oregonian and attended by hundreds of people and created quite a buzz!
Over the last ten years, WOW! put on gallery style “friends and family” art shows "Art Garden" and "Art Splash", including a few bigger ambition shows like our "Falling For Irresistible Art" Show.
