Art Bags

Inspired by local artists

Introducing our fourth limited-edition art bag, featuring the commissioned work of Sarah Waldron of Jacksonville, Oregon. Stirred by water and its importance to life, she depicts its ever-changing appearance.

“Although my oil paintings are somewhat modern in format, I work in the traditional impressionistic style, building imagery and color with brushstrokes,” she says.

Striking and smart, these 100% recyclable, nonwoven, polypropylene reusable bags support the arts and lessen our impact on the Earth.

For every bag purchased, $1.50 goes to a selected arts organization in your area.

Programs we're supporting include:

Lane Arts Council Artist Residencies – Eugene, Oregon

Professional visual, fine craft and performing artists work with students and teachers for two weeks to provide educational arts activities, teach new skills, develop creative thinking and more. In the process, young people who may not otherwise receive art instruction benefit from authentic experiences that engage minds, hearts and bodies.

Clackamas County Arts Alliance – West Linn and SW Portland
Oregon Arts Alliance was created to support, develop and promote access to arts and culture in Clackamas County.

The Arts Center, At Risk Youth Program – Corvallis, Oregon
Over 12 months, up to 30 different teaching artists provide workshops for at-risk youth in ceramics, sculpture, drawing, dance, music, poetry, theater, painting and fiber arts. These workshops make a substantial impact on underserved youth in the community.

Friends of The Schneider Museum of Art – Ashland, Oregon
Serving both an academic and community audience, The Schneider Museum of Art seeks to build a challenging environment that engages with the visual arts through exhibitions and programs supporting interdisciplinary study, research and discourse.
