Art Gallery: A Pictorial Round-up

January 20, 2019 12:00pm–4:00pm

The Klamath Art Association and Gallery will be hosting a special invitational exhibit in January 2019 honoring the contributions made to our community by ranchers, farmers, and rodeo participants. If you have artwork, photography, sculpture, or crafts such as leatherwork, blacksmithing, weaving, etc. that that exemplify the best of rural America, you are invited to submit your entries to “A Pictorial Round-Up.” This invitation is to both KAA members and non-members. The exhibit will open with an artist’s reception on Sunday, January 6 from noon to 4 PM. Voting for best of show awards will take place at the reception based on three categories: art, photography, and 3D sculpture/crafts. The gallery is located at 120 Riverside Drive and in January will be open from noon to 4 PM, Wednesdays through Sunday.

As the Klamath Art Gallery has limited space, there is a size/quantity limit for work that has to hang on the wall as follows: two works if they are under 24" x 36 inches measured from the external edges of the frame or a total of 864 square inches if they are an odd shape frame. OR: one work up to 28" x 42" as measured from the external edges of the frame or a total of 1,176 square inches as measured by the external edges of the frame. All hanging works must have wire back hangers – no hooks or loops. "Coloring Book" art is specifically excluded, and all submissions must fit the theme of the exhibit. NO exceptions.

For 3D work, sculpture and crafts, table and pedestal space is available with the amount of items at the discretion of the gallery. For non-members, there is a small entry fee of $5.00 per entry for “wall” work, and a flat $5.00 fee for work or items that sit on a pedestal or tabletop. All entries must be for sale as the gallery charges a 25% commission for members and a 30% commission for non-members. All work needs to be delivered in person to the gallery on Thursday, January 3, from 2 to 5:30 PM. Entry forms will be available at the gallery on January 3, or in advance via e-mail to using the subject line “Forms.” For complete exhibit guidelines, please visit the Klamath Art Gallery website at this link:

Ranger-Guided Snowshoe Hikes at Crater Lake

January 20, 2019 1:00pm–3:00pm

In an average winter, Crater Lake National Park receives 43 feet of snow! Ranger-led snowshoe hikes are a fun way to explore this winter wonderland while learning how plants, animals, and people survive the harsh conditions.

This winter, snowshoe hikes will be offered on weekends and holidays from December 8 through April 28, and every day from December 15 through January 6. They start at 1:00 pm, last two hours, and cover 1 to 2 miles of moderate-to-strenuous terrain. They don’t follow a trail—the hike is an off-trail exploration through the forests and meadows along the rim of Crater Lake.

No previous snowshoeing experience is necessary. Snowshoes are provided free of charge, and there is no cost for the tour (apart from the winter entrance fee of $15 per vehicle).

Participants should be at least 8 years old, be in good physical health, and come prepared with warm clothing and water-resistant footwear. The walks take place rain or shine (or snow). Pets are not allowed on the hike.

Space on each tour is limited, and advance reservations are required. For more information and to sign up, call the park’s visitor center at 541-594-3100. The visitor center is open daily except on December 25.

Organized groups (such as scout troops, hiking clubs, and church groups) may be able to arrange for a separate tour, staff permitting. Call to check on available dates.
