What's Happening at Sequoia April 2014

Spring is finally here! April brings the return of our popular Hip 2B Square Show.  Read about this fun community show below.

We are also excited to be participating in the return of Hillsboro's First Tuesday Art Walk this month.  As you stroll around town enjoying the art displayed at local businesses make sure to stop by Sequoia. Our doors are open all day until our 8pm closing, so stop by anytime!

For the fourth year in a row, we are opening our gallery to member and non-member artists of all levels of experience for our annual community exhibition, Hip 2B Square. Both seasoned artists and beginners have the opportunity to unleash their creativity on either a 12"x 12" canvas or wooden panel.The only requirement is that their art work fit within the boundaries of the canvas or wood panel and not exceed 12" in height.


All mediums are accepted and encouraged: oils, acrylics, pastel, drawing, mosaic, fiber arts, 3D sculpture and more. The range of mediums, styles and themes is only limited by our imaginations. 


While the participants benefit from the fun of participating in this community show, the gallery benefits as well. The funds raised from the event help Sequoia continue to bring you quality art and art programming throughout the year.
