SageBrushers Art Society was founded in 1952 to promote the arts in Bend. The organization gained more members through the
years, until they realized that they needed a space to gather together with artists to create, explore and hold classes.
In , the growing group began renting the SageBrushers’ current home in Bend, OR. The following year they were able to
purchase the building through a special agreement with the county. Today, SageBrushers Art Society boasts 113 members, holds
classes for artists of all levels, provides space for them to work, as well as to meet and critique one another’s work. Members
exhibit and sit the gallery. They also maintain the garden, the building and provide all the cleaning and repairs.
