A comprehensive directory of Southern Oregon's arts community and guide to events for its members, local arts enthusiasts, and those planning to visit or move to our region.
Southern Oregon is a garden of unique and diverse creative talent. From distinguished fine artists to outsiders, our area is home to award winners and promising new talent in a vast range of disciplines and host to a spectacular array of yearly theater, music, food and wine festivals. As our continuing trend of excellence and achievement grows, so do our collaborations; increasingly multi-faceted, many events frame the primary work on display with a well-rounded presentation including music, wine tasting from local artisan wineries and gourmet catering using locally grown and made cheeses, chocolates and organic foods, all produced by award-winning artists in their own fields.
It is our goal to provide a comprehensive directory that will be a convenient hub for the promotion of local and regional artists, a collaboration reference for galleries, venues and event planners and a travel planning resource for visitors coming to enjoy the rich palette of Southern Oregon arts & culture. Further, it is our hope that this resource will both unify the broad spectrum of our arts community and convey a compelling sense of the vibrant arts scene in Southern Oregon which encourages visitors to sample our nationally and internationally acclaimed artistic and cultural offerings.
