Artwork: “Dance!” by Diane Williams

Members’ Exhibit:

Exhibits from:
July 13 – Sept 7

Opening Reception:
July 13th 5 – 7pm

Every July, the Umpqua Valley Arts Association celebrates its artist members by hosting a Members’ Art Exhibit.  UVAA’s artist members share the art they have created with the entire community.

This event showcases their dedication to their studio practice and to the community through the making and showing of their artworks.  All of our galleries will be filled with their newest work so we can all see, experience, and support their progress.

The Student Gallery will feature Polarity, an art exhibit by two UCC students Jayden Dukes and Serena Swanson, which shows the difference in interpretations even when given the same guidelines.

As always, the public is welcome to enjoy the opening reception.  Open hours are 10am – 4pm Tues – Friday and Saturdays 10am – 2pm.  Admission is always free.  Learn More here>
