Tickets (a book and map) are $20 and can be purchased online, at the Museum or at Evergreen Federal Bank's main branch or the Chamber of Commerce.  Don't delay - this is a wonderful event.

Cathedral Hills by Paul Brown
Cycle Oregon

"Grants Pass through the artists' eyes...
Table centerpieces for sale"
Cycle Oregon and the Grants Pass Chamber of Commerce asked GPMA to create centerpieces for Cycle Oregon's stay at Indian Mary Park.  The cyclists aren't going to be coming into Grants Pass so we thought we'd take Grants Pass to them.  We asked artists to paint their version of various Grants Pass landmarks. 

The original artwork will be on display for sale from September 20 to September 30. Some of your favorite locations are represented.  Hurry and place a bid. 80% of the sale will go to the artist.  The museum will retain 20%. It's a win win deal!
