Wallowa Valley Arts Council

A Gathering Place for the Arts in Wallowa County

Promoting Arts and Culture in N.E. Oregon



After 35 years independently supporting the arts in Wallowa County, the Wallowa Valley Arts Council has merged with the Josephy Center! 

We welcome this exciting partnership to continue to support our ongoing programs, act as an incubator & fiduciary for budding artists and non-profits, and develop new programming in Wallowa County. 


The Wallowa Valley Arts Council has a rich history of leading, promoting, and strengthening the Arts. Join us as we continue to work with our community partners to bring an enthusiastic array of visual images, music, dance, and theater to our valley for your enjoyment, enrichment, and edification.

To contact us, write artscouncil@josephy.org. We always welcome new ideas to connect our art community. and offer open applications for artists on local scholarships, festivals, artist and organization consulting and incubation, and bronze sculptures below!

The 2020 Wallowa Festival of the Arts has gone virtual for the year. There is also a silent auction. Please click here for more information.
