The Artists Workshop is a group of over thirty Rogue Valley Artists that meet every Monday to paint at an outdoor location, weather permitting, and indoors to paint models during the Winter months. These artists paint and draw in all media: charcoal, watercolor, oil, acrylic and pastel. The group conducts an annual show and sale in late August; 2013 marks their 29th exhibit. Please contact Rick Evans if you are interested in participating in painting sessions or joining the Workshop.

Our hometown of Ashland has been designated as one of the “Best Small Arts Towns in America.” And while our most famous arts organization is the award winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival, you really haven't seen Ashland until you've seen the Ashland Galleries.

Masterpiece Christian Fine Arts seeks to "go into all the world" through the means of visual art. We organize exhibits in major cities and public places of masterworks of fine art created by leading artists, both historic and present day, which convey God’s love, truth, beauty and plan for redemption. We seek to give hope to the lost, encouragement to the fellowship of Believers, and to equip emerging artists for the glory of God through workshops and conferences.
