A Plethora of Rogue Valley Artists and Artisans

Gallery One at Grants Pass Museum of Art


Gallery One has gone through many changes since its beginning in 1979, but one thing it has always done is deliver original art to the public.

Soon after it opened, the name was changed to the Grants Pass Museum of Art and incorporated as a non-profit. In 1998, when the museum moved from Riverside Park to its historic location on G Street, it rented space to various gallery owners. In 2005, the museum itself took charge and named the downstairs space Gallery One, creating a retail venue for local artists to sell their work. Today there are over 60 different artists displaying their original artwork; from jewelry to sculpture, and all forms of two-dimensional visual art. Each artist pays rent and agrees to work four hours per month.

Gallery One is the perfect place to find one-of-a-kind art that is indigenous to Southern Oregon. Surrounded by historic downtown Grants Pass, a shopping spree in Gallery One can be combined with eating in one of the many restaurants within a two-block radius and shopping for everything from clothes to gourmet kitchen gadgets. It is the best resource for finding just the right gift for any occasion.

Artists are encouraged to rotate their inventory twice a month. This means that there is always something new to discover. There are also “rotating” spaces for new artists. Seasonal offerings make frequent visits enjoyable. Artists are also urged to “do their art” while in the gallery whenever possible, making the creating experience exciting for all.
