SEQUOIA GALLERY + STUDIOS is dedicated to promoting the visual arts and arts education in Hillsboro and the surrounding area, offering the community three ways to connect with visual art: the gallery, classes, and artist studios.
Browse through paintings, sculptures, mosaics, prints, photographs, mixed media, glass and jewelry, and maybe you will find that special piece of art to take home or give as a gift.
The First Tuesday of every month, come view our newest exhibition of featured artists, and enjoy the talents of local musicians.
Mission Statement: The Hillsboro Visual Art Association, DBA Sequoia Gallery and Studios, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting fine art in the community. The goals of this association are to offer a variety of programs and events that teach and display art; to provide an environment for interaction among artists and the development of creative ideas; to provide opportunity for artists to exhibit their work; to enrich the community through innovative outreach and in-house programs.
Take in the great diversity of media, styles, and techniques; and find out what makes these artists so passionate about their work. You’ll find the atmosphere both creative and friendly.

Eight Sequoia artists participated in designing 13 panels that depict life in and around Hillsboro, past and present. Lynn took original paintings and drawings and created the cartoons that were used as the guides for the mosaics. With the help of 125 community volunteers, from kindergarteners to senior citizens, the mosaic murals came to life.
In May of 2011 the murals were installed and unveiled to the public. Constructed of frost proof ceramic tiles and glass, the mural will last for many years, for the enjoyment of all who pass by.
We participate in community events such as Celebrate Hillsboro and our artists participate in art career days and demonstrations at Hillsboro’s public schools. Our popular Dine with an Artist events bring our award winning instructors to restaurants in downtown Hillsboro for informal sharing and art talk with fellow art lovers. And you might even see our Plein Air students outside at work painting local street scenes and Washington County’s beautiful countryside.
