Celebrating the Arts
Since 1978

The Celebration of Creativity was started over 40 years ago by a small group at Southminster Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, Oregon. The goal was to meet the need of local artists for a recurring professional venue and to make fine art available and affordable to the community.

Our Story

Over the years, this showcase of local and regional talent has grown to become one of the premier art shows in the Portland area, famous for its beautiful presentation, a wide variety of media, and an ever-changing array of artists.

The Art Show Committee of Southminster works year-round to produce the Celebration of Creativity, inviting both emerging and established artists after jurying.

Our Mission

For more than 20 years, the Celebration of Creativity has provided money for scholarships and art programs as part of its mission to promote local arts by supporting art education. The committee has supported the Beaverton School District Arts Literacy Program for over 16 years with volunteers and donations.  Additionally, it has also sponsored three annual scholarships for outstanding high school student artists awarded by the Beaverton Arts Foundation.

Meet the Artist: Chris Baskin "My work as an artist is to help people draw strength, and comfort through aesthetics. By offering virtuous pots for everyday lives, I help people be in touch, literally, with their bodies, their senses, and earth itself. Pots move people. Beauty nourishes the soul. I can put it right in your hands and help you drink from it." @chrisbaskinpottery
