Visual Arts

paintA major component of POAC’s mission is to support quality visual artists.  We do this by providing POAC artist members with opportunities to show their work at eleven year-round galleries in Sandpoint, Ponderay, and Dover.

In addition, POAC organizes, sponsors, and promotes an annual ArtWalk that takes place in downtown Sandpoint during summer.  From the third week of June through the second week of September, more than 30 downtown businesses and galleries open their doors to artists of every medium.  Exhibiting artists receive tremendous exposure to both local residents and tourists visiting our area from around the world.
