Bag&Baggage is proud to partner with the City of Hillsboro’s Arts & Culture Council, Parks & Recreation Department, and Sequoia Gallery and Studios on the 2016 Plein Air Reception, Awards, and Art Sale!

Artists from throughout the region will gather in Hillsboro on September 28, 29, 30, and October 1 to pain from farm to forest and from hills to valley, exploring the beauty of Hillsboro and all of Washington County.
