The third annual Willamette Valley Stamp Exhibition will be held on September 19 and 20, 2020.  This exhibition, sponsored by the Greater Eugene Stamp Society (GESS) and the Salem Stamp Society (SSS), will be in Eugene on Saturday, September 19 in conjunctin with the GESS STAMPFEST. The show will continue on Sunday, September 20, in conjunction withthe SSS STAMPEX. The show was a good success in 2018 and 2019; it will be continued, though rescheduled from its orignal March 2020 dates.

The exhibits will be judged, and a variety of awards presented in Eugene at the end of the first day.  There will be a second awards ceremony at the beginning of the show in Salem on Sunday -- presenting the same awards.

In 1940 there was also a Willamette Valley Stamp Exhibition, in Salem, a collaboration of four stamp clubs: Salem Stamp Society, Corvallis Stamp Society, Eugene Stamp Society, and Oregon Stamp Society. Click heree to see a poster for that event.

 

     

All stamp collectors are encouraged to provide exhibits. This is meant to be a low-key friendly show.  George Struble, the exhibits chair, says this is in keeping with the first reason to exhibit: show your friends what you do.  Exhibits may be 1, 2, 3, or 4 frames.  No previous exhibiting experience is necessary.  In fact, exhibits that have won gold awards in WSP shows like PIPEX and SEAPEX are not eligible for competition in this Exhibition. See the Prospectus (button at the left) for details.

Collectors who are not exhibiting should come to the show, in either city, to see what your friends do, learn more about aspects not in your primary collecting area -- and maybe some things in your area. Learn who has interests similar to yours. And wrap your mind around the idea of producing your own exhibit next year!
