Discover the Art and Artists of Oregon

The art scene is alive and thriving in Oregon. Whether you are exploring the murals, sculptures and galleries of Art Alley in Springfield or enjoying the work of regional artists at Raincoast Arts in Bandon, you’ll find something that will catch your eye.

Has glass blowing always intrigued you? You’ll love watching the glass creations take shape at Alderhouse Glass or the Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio, both in Lincoln City. You can even learn the process through their classes.

If you are traveling through Bend in Central Oregon, visit The Ironworks Art District. It’s a hub of artists creating everything from metalwork to photo exhibits. The High Desert Museum is also a “must see” for anyone who loves the sculptures, paintings and drawings of Native American, Western and contemporary art. Art is such a critical part of Bend’s culture that you can take a guided Roundabout Art Tour, which features more than 20 art pieces in the city’s traffic circles.

While Portland is also filled with impressive galleries, the Valley Art Gallery in Forest Grove should make your itinerary. It displays the work of national and local artists through paintings, metalwork, carvings, and glass.

A premier glass blowing studio in Lincoln City, Alderhouse Glass is the place to be for traveling glass blowing fans. Any visit to the central section of Oregon's Coast should yield some fun-filled days of watching the professionals do their thing on this 2000 year-old art form.
