bout Village Gallery Arts



Our Mission

The Village Gallery of Arts promotes professional and emerging artists by offering high quality, affordable art education to children and adults, and provides a gallery for our members to display and sell their work.

We have been here a long time…over 50 years!

The Village Gallery of Arts was founded in 1963 by a group of 10 artists who shared the idea of having a working, teaching gallery, a place for exhibition and instruction.

Today, we are home to more than 150 Oregon artists. Several of our artists have been with the gallery for many years. We enjoy a diverse group of artists and artisans, who create fine works of art in virtually every area.

The Gallery has grown with the community and has occupied several locations in the Cedar Mill area. We have been in our current space next to the Cedar Mill Community Library since 2001, and we believe this space will serve our needs for a long time to come.

We offer a good variety of classes and workshops for all ages and abilities (see Classes) which change according to community interest and needs.

The Gallery is a nonprofit organization (501c3) and receives no tax-payer money. We support the Gallery through fees for classes, workshops, membership dues, sales from the Gallery, and tax-deductible donations.

If you would like to help support the Gallery and the arts, please mail your contribution to the Gallery or send an email through the Contact page and let us know how you can help.
