4th Annual Mayor’s Art Invitational

2010 – 2011

The 4th Oregon Artists Series exhibition was dedicated to Salem Mayor Janet Taylor who retired in January 2011 and whose term was distinguished not only by dedicated public service but also by her tireless support for the arts and artists in our community.
