Permanent Collection

The Salem Art Association Gallery Permanent Collection includes paintings, prints, sculptures and ceramics by some of the region’s leading artists whose names are important to the history of art in the Willamette Valley and the Pacific Northwest. The collection has been gradually expanded through purchases by the SAA Gallery Guides and through donations from the public.

Below, you’ll find works from our permanent collection. The artwork on this page features different selections from our permanent collection and offers new opportunities to learn about art history in the mid-Willamette Valley region.
