You are cordially invited to the Southern Oregon Guild’s 8th Annual Artoberfest, a juried art fair to be held in the Illinois Valley in conjunction with the 12th Annual Valley Girls Quilt Show.

The two events, Artoberfest and Valley Girls Quilt Show, create a fall Celebration of the Arts in Southern Oregon’s beautiful Illinois Valley and continue to draw a greater number of visitors each year.

Artoberfest is located along Highway 199 in the small historic town of Kerby where art merchants attract both tourists and regional visitors.

Yanase Jewelers and It's a Burl are two fo the three locations in Kerby that offer a wide variety of art for enjoyment and purchase during Artoberfest.

Juried artists’ booths are located at show headquarters on Rogue Community College’s Kerby Campus, which is also home to the Southern Oregon Guild Gallery & Art Center.

At the show venue, a unique indoor space allows for design of a delightful custom show layout based on interviews with each individual artist. In order to accommodate the widest range of fine art and craft disciplines within the indoor space available, the layout utilizes a variety of booth sizes and shapes.
