The Artists’ Fair is replacing the Artist’s Shop from past conferences. The Artists’ Fair will be open to the public on Thursday and Friday evenings in the Cawein Gallery, and is an opportunity for book artists to personally sell their fine crafts.
For conference attendees and the public this is a unique opportunity to purchase hand-made books, cards, hand decorated papers, and other book related work from professional artists and students of the arts.
FOCUS ON BOOK ARTS is a five-day conference of book and paper arts workshops held biennially on the verdant campus of Pacific University in charming Forest Grove, Oregon, just west of Portland. Every odd-numbered year, we present workshops taught by renowned, professional instructors in the fields of bookbinding, printing, decorative papers, paper making, book art and more. The conference attracts over 200 book and paper artists from around the world. We offer five days of workshops, along with a Trade Show, Artists’ Fair, Faculty-Staff Exhibition, and several evening receptions. With the option of on-campus housing, FOBA is an excellent opportunity for community, networking, and learning new skills.

Art Camp for adults at the Oakland Feather River Camp has been an annual event since 1991. We are well known for our inspirational classes, taught by recognized arts professionals, offered in an amazingly beautiful mountain setting.
Feather River Art Camp provides a surge of creative energy to enlighten the rest of your year.
Imagine being fully inspired and receptive to the healing powers of nature in the former home of the Maidu Indians. You are enjoying a week expanding your creativity and making art.
You are surrounded by other creative adults who are giving themselves the gift of time. No shopping, cooking or cleaning to worry about; you need not even get in your car to drive anywhere.
Classes meet along the sparkling Spanish Creek or nearby, in the midst of the fragrance of oak and pine trees and a profusion of wildflowers.
Whether you are a complete beginner or a professional artist, Art Camp provides an opportunity to refine your skills, pick up new ideas or mediums, and benefit from the expertise, support and enthusiasm of both instructors and other participants.
Take a next step in your art or try something new. You receive quality instruction and feedback from seasoned professional artists who are dedicated to their arts.
Feather River Art Camp is the perfect joyful blend of fine art, creativity, nature, restoration, fun and camaraderie.
