Sanctuary Art Show


For over 40 years, our fellowship has exhibited work of a wide range of artists, from the celebrated to the emerging.

Our gallery is in the sanctuary of the West Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in a beautiful forested setting at 8470 S.W. Oleson Road, Portland, OR 97223. Usually art openings are held on the first Sunday of each month (please check our calendar for confirmation).  WHUUF hosts an opening reception for the artist, and the public is invited to join us in celebrating the artist(s) and their work.

Gallery hours are Sundays from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm, Tuesdays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and by appointment: contact or call the number below.

If you would like to purchase work from the current show, please contact the gallery at (503) 310-0304.

The reflective inner visions of two local artists, while divergent in style and mediums, invite us to share a joint wonder of the beautiful world around us.
Vicki McArdler's serene yet festive banners celebrating nature combine the earthy texture of organic handmade paper, the serandipity of found objectives and recycled fabrics.
Rebecca Owens presents mystical dreamlike works, in a verity of mediums, drawn from hikes with family and friends through the lush Pacific Northwest landscape.


Alice Wanke Stephens

The Columbia River is older than the mountains it passes through. The gorge in Oregon and Washington was carved into its present U shape 13,000 years ago by the massive series of Missoula Floods, which washed Montana gravel all the way to the Pacific coast. Since the end of the most recent ice age the gorge’s contours have been softened by erosion and vegetation.
Working with canvas, acrylic, brush and palette knife, the artist Alice Wanke Stephens created this series of paintings for a fundraiser “Art For Land’s Sake” to contribute to the protection of this unique and beautiful natural area.
Whether you consider the millions of years of geologic time, the thousands of years of human habitation, or the annual changing of the seasons, this series of paintings gives us an opportunity to meditate on the inter-dependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
