Buying art at Rogue Gallery’s Members’ Gallery is an excellent way to begin – or expand –
your art collection with original work from local artists. Art makes great gifts too!

MAKE ARTOur strategic plan determined that improving our building façade was our stake-holder’s number one priority. Our plan for the Rogue Gallery includes exterior paint, new awnings, and a new and dramatic entrance worthy of Oregon’s longest established community art center.

We recently received a pledge of $10,000 from one of our members to upgrade our facilities. This Challenge Gift will match contributions dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000, which enables your gift to double its impact for the organization.

What makes this a truly exciting opportunity is that we have a second match from the City of Medford’s Urban Renewal façade improvement program. Through this program we have been approved for matching funds, dollar-for-dollar, up to $32,000 to complete the façade improvements for our building. Combining these two matching funds means that your gift will triple its impact!

Your donation can be made over the phone to 541-772-8118, or online at our secure website,, or by mail to Rogue Gallery & Art Center, 40 S Bartlett St, Medford, OR 97501.

Please accept the challenge to help the Rogue Gallery & Art Center meet these matching gifts.  We hope that you will enable us to meet our goal.
