The Ashland Gallery Association is a collection of over thirty galleries and studios, with dozens of artist members, offering remarkably diverse and high quality works of art. Our hometown of Ashland is 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.
We’re remarkably user-friendly. Most of our galleries are located within just a few blocks of each other, and every gallery welcomes all comers. We’re proud of the work we produce and offer, and we look forward to showing you what we’re all about.
You can stop by to browse, or plan on attending one of our special events.
The AGA hosts an art walk on the “First Friday” of each month where you have an opportunity to meet the artists, view demonstrations, and enjoy traditional and innovative works of art in a gallery atmosphere often including music and refreshments. An Ashland First Friday is an eclectic mix of visual delights, interesting conversations, intimate music and tasty treats. The collage of image and experience grows as you stroll the galleries in the Historical Downtown and Railroad Districts. Join us for the next Art Walk on the upcoming First Friday.
We also publish an annual “Gallery Guide” which can be acquired at any AGA gallery, the Ashland or Medford Chambers of Commerce or any of nine Welcome Centers throughout the state. The guide, including maps, photos and gallery descriptions, is a keepsake for visitors and patrons for future reference.
