Call to Artists for Annual Art for the Heart Showcase


Join us in raising awareness about heart health at Art for the Heart

Let your heart speak out! Adventist Health Tillamook announces a call to artists for an art exhibition February 1–29, 2024, at the North County Recreation District in Nehalem, Oregon, to raise awareness about community art, the North County Recreation District and heart health.

Gina Seufert, Physician and Clinic Services Executive and Privacy Officer who is leading the event driven by her passion for art and the North County community, adds, “This is a great opportunity for artists of all ages and talents to speak with their heart and help support community awareness of American Heart Month.”

Artists of all ages on the Oregon coast can submit up to five entries for any medium. There are no fees for creative submissions. The submitted artwork will remain at NCRD throughout February. All mediums may be entered and must be clearly labeled with the creative title, artist name and sale price. All submitting artists, please note that all digital work must be printed and wall-ready, hanging art must be wall-ready, and free-standing art objects are also welcome but must be accompanied by a stand or holder to securely hold them in place.

Cash awards will be offered for first place ($500), second ($250), third ($175), a people’s choice award ($250) and a special award ($150) for a submission from an artist of high school age or younger.
