Art & Shopping

Long before Joseph was hailed as an artists’ mecca, Native Americans were making art inspired by the region’s natural beauty and the rich spirituality of its landscapes. Now, many local artists honor this tradition by continuing to create beautiful and meaningful art inspired by the majesty of Eastern Oregon. The region continues to attract artists looking for a relaxing place to create, as well as art enthusiasts who come to browse our excellent art galleries and explore our growing art scene.

While you are here, be sure to take one of the local Art Walks and check out these excellent galleries:

Uptown Art – Aspen Grove Gallery – Kelly’s Gallery – Valley Bronze Gallery

In addition, Joseph is filled with dozens of specialty shops where you can pick up fine foods, chocolate, baked goods, wine, clothing, jewelry, antiques, and a variety of other gifts & souvenirs. Browse Joseph’s Business Directory for a full list of local shops and businesses.
