Valley Art Association  

Valley Art, established in 1966, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. Valley Art is located in the heart of historic downtown Forest Grove on Main Street, just one block west of Pacific University.


As one of the oldest nonprofit, all-volunteer art associations in the Pacific Northwest, we feature over 200 established and emerging local artists. We offer an eclectic assortment of paintings, fine pottery, jewelry, wood carvings, glass art, metal sculpture, textiles and garden art, to name a few. We pride ourselves in finding unique items at exceptional values. There are also art classes in pottery, painting, mixed media, drawing, printmaking, quilting and there are several classes for children – truly something for everyone.

 Valley Art Supporters:

This is an exciting time for Valley Art, as we celebrated 50 years in Forest Grove and began our 51st. The gallery was started in 1966 by 12 artists. Two years later it became a legitimate business.

Today it is a thriving art gallery, pottery studio and educational nonprofit organization, run entirely by volunteers. We have over 325 members, about 100 artists and nearly 50 active volunteers.

Currently we are working on raising money to help with the refurbishing of our building which needs some expensive updating. The storefront of Valley Art requires stabilization of the 1930s era infrastructure. We welcome your help. Donations have arrived ranging from $25,000, $1,000 to $250 and $10. We still need around $22,000.

Donations are welcome anytime, but remember: When the year 2017 comes to an end, we ask you consider Valley Art in your year-end giving. Your contribution is tax deductible under Section 501 (c)3 of the IRS tax code. Stop by the gallery or send your donation to VAA, P.O. Box 333, Forest Grove, OR 97116.


IN ADDITION to our beautiful gallery space we offer two separate classroom spaces, one with wonderful natural lighting for workshops and club meetings as well as a 600 sq. ft. pottery studio for both adult and children’s classes.
