Last Chance to give to 2018 'Pass the Beret':
OSA needs your support in our last push to meet our budgeted goal of $30,000. Please consider a gift to OSA this holiday season by contributing to our annual Pass the Beret fund-raising drive. 

Generous contributions from wonderful members and supporters like you enable OSA to offer exhibits, classes, and workshops that promote and provide opportunities for artists in the greater Portland region and beyond.
The Mission of Oregon Society of Artists is to promote the visual arts in the diverse communities of our region with educational and exhibition opportunities for artists at all levels of accomplishment. In accordance with our Mission, in 2018 we have established and continued partnerships with:
  • Multnomah County Urban 4-H
