Explore Art in Corvallis, Oregon

Get out of the cold and tour art galleries in Corvallis!

When our seasonal cold weather and rain arrive in the Willamette Valley plenty of us still get outdoors and hit the trails, but some of us are on the hunt for some fun indoor activities. One fun thing to do in Corvallis that'll get you indoors is to tour our local art galleries. We have quite a few!

Downtown Corvallis boasts several art galleries and artist studios that display artwork, and many of our local shops and businesses display artwork from local artists, as well. It's easy to spend an afternoon browsing different art galleries in and around Corvallis.

Here's a quick listing of four of our bigger art galleries (below) to get you started, and you can find a more complete listing on our Arts & Culture web page.
