July 25, 2008 Portland, Oregon –- Studio Art Direct is currently curating permanent art collections for several projects in the Pacific Northwest including hotels, resorts and corporate headquarters.

For these projects, we are specifically interested in large landscape paintings on canvas and panel utilizing mixed media, encaustic, acrylic and or oils. Of particular interest are paintings with Oregon subject matter.

Paintings must be large (36″ to 96″) and original. Paintings must be of highest quality and craftsmanship. Those in the impressionistic or slightly abstracted styles – with care in creating a unique look at nature through the painter’s eyes – are of most interest to us. No Mt. Hood, Multnomah Falls, or other “typical calendar type shots” will be accepted. No works on paper accepted for this series.

Up to 5 artists will be chosen for these projects. Studio Art Direct will purchase the work on behalf of our clients at artist wholesale prices only. No galleries please. Budgets for purchase are $1000-$5000 each. Emerging artists are encouraged to submit. You must be an artist residing in Oregon or Washington to be considered.

Submit at least (3 to 5) low resolution jpegs of your work to  by AUGUST 1, 2008. Please provide complete contact information, your wholesale artist price for each painting/jpeg, size, medium, and substrate within your email.
