About Local 14 Scholarships

Local 14 is a group of artists founded in 1967 by 14 women, to help each other promote their pursuit in the arts. It has expanded to a membership of over 45 talented women artists who, along with over 40 guest artists, produce an annual art show and sale showcasing a wide range of art and craft media. This group is dedicated to help encourage women in the arts and has thus created the Local 14 Educational Foundation, founded in 1997, to provide scholarship assistance to deserving women artists. Now we are accepting all genders. Each year, NW artists who are or will be attending art school in the following year bring their art to Lakewood Center for the Arts. A jury uses a high set of criteria to choose winners.

​CONGRATULATIONS to all of these fine artists who received scholarships! Thanks to our visitors, who contributed at the door for this worthy cause!
