We are very excited to have 40 artists on the 2014 tour. Each participating town has a rich selection of art and artists to share. The Columbia River Gorge is indeed becoming the place to experience art and natural beauty. An hour’s driving distance from Portland, this event is the perfect outing for a spring weekend. Coupled with a month long Wine Event, it can’t get better than this!
Featured Trout Lake area artists include Ardis DeFreece, Deborah Nelson, Sarah Burr Arnold, and Joanna Kaufman
