About New Zone
The New Zone Gallery is a nonprofit cooperative gallery located in Eugene, Oregon. It features the work of over 60 members of the New Zone Artists Collective. The gallery was established in 1983 to further, develop, and foster interest in experimental visual arts and to encourage artists with like interests. The gallery has occupied several locations in its history but is currently found at 220 W 8th in the Gallery District of downtown Eugene.
The gallery has earned a solid reputation for presenting experimental work of high quality by local artists. Typical seasons have featured shows by individual members and also group shows that have broad public interest and encompass divergent points of view. To encourage experimentation and creativity, New Zone exhibits are non-juried, giving members an opportunity to show work that may not find space in traditional galleries.
Funding for New Zone comes from a variety of sources including dues, commission on sales, donations and grants. The City of Eugene and the Lane Regional Arts Council have awarded the gallery grants in past years.
The New Zone Gallery is a small but vigorous organization that continues to have a big impact on Eugene's art scene.
New membership to the gallery is currently on hold but applications are stored for future openings and can be downloaded from our Join page linked below.
