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. Next year we celebrate 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.

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.

Valley Art Supporters:

There have been some exciting changes at the gallery this year, from the mural painting on the back of our building, to the largest attendance ever during the 25th Annual Chalk Art Festival.

This year Valley Art Association itself turned 49 years old. How about that?! 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.
