Amici Art Contest
Appreciation for the Arts
As an arts organization, we appreciate the incredible contribution that creative people make to our community, and we look for any opportunity to support existing artists and encourage new ones.
Since 2010, Chamber Music Amici has solicited art work from Lane County artists in a contest where winners help us promote our concerts. Their work graces the covers of our program books, highlights our concerts on our website, appears in social media posts, and more!
In return, artists of Lane County have won cash prizes through both the regular and People’s Choice Awards categories, and have had their work on show at the Emerald Art Center in Springfield, starting with their debut at the popular and well-attended annual reception, with food, music, and art on the program.
Explore the gallery below of past winners, and see guidelines for our new format of this annual event, an art commission inviting all Oregon artists to apply.

The commission application period is now closed! Thank you to all who shared the news of this commission and/or applied. We are happy to announce

Amici Art Contest Reception
After the creation of art is the celebration of art, even during a pandemic. In February 2021, COVID waylaid our annual (in-person) reception, but nonetheless we found ways to congratulate our winners, and play music in celebration of their achievements.
