Upcoming Exhibits

Umpqua Valley Arts is dedicated to the belief that the arts are an indispensable element of a thriving and meaningful community, and that ideas & art in its many forms should be available to all. Our arts exhibition programming is inspired by our energetic community, the geography in which our organization is situated, and the unique history of our region and our institution. When we learn to appreciate art together, we are learning to acknowledge and respect the histories that bind us together, and the changing world that surrounds us.
