Valley Art Association and Gallery

Valley Art Gallery, established in 1966, is located in the heart of historic downtown Forest Grove on Main Street, just one block west of Pacific University. During 2016 we are celebrating our 50th anniversary!

As one of the oldest nonprofit, all-volunteer art galleries 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 is truly something for everyone.

 Valley Art Supporters:

This is an exciting time for Valley Art Gallery, as we celebrate 50 years in Forest Grove.

 The gallery was started in 1964 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.

Donations are welcome anytime, and when the year 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.
