As a non-profit organization, philanthropic support lies at the center of fulfilling our mission. With generosity of our friends and benefactors, the Oregon Society of Artists will remain a high-quality institution offering visual art instruction and exhibition opportunities for all quarters of our community.

Patrons are among the Society’s most generous annual donors and experience a shared connection to the visual arts enhanced by a host of offerings that bring art into daily life. Our Patrons genuinely believe in our mission and directly support the exhibitions, workshops, and classes our community experiences daily. The Patron Society is an important component to advancing the OSA as a cultural resource in the Pacific Northwest.

In recognition of your generosity, Patrons have access to a host of benefits that deepen their involvement with OSA. If you are interested in any of these programs, please contact OSA at 503-228-0706 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
