Umpqua Plein Air
Sept 28 – Oct 25, 2019

This annual event celebrates the stunning and wild landscape of the Umpqua Valley in Southern Oregon. Over 60 artists from throughout the region spent a week painting the landscapes of Douglas County. Their creations are hung throughout the art center through the end of October. Come visit, observe and connect to nature at Umpqua Valley Arts for this year’s annual Umpqua Plein Air! Nature is calling you.



UVAA and the UVAA’s Gallery Committee want to tell you about an exciting project and upcoming exhibition called Faces of The Umpqua Valley Project.

Faces of the Umpqua Valley Project will be a photographic exhibition and a book that looks at our community. The intention is to show our community at a moment in time, depicting the pride and skills that makes this a community that is a pleasure to live in.

Thank you for your nominations!
