Free April Fools Talent Show in Lorane at the Lorane Grange @ 3PM on Sunday April 5th

It's time again to get your talent polished and check out what your neighbors have prepared. Rumored talents include songsters, guitarist, a uke orchestra, a didgeridoo, spoons music, a sax act and more. Whether it is silly or sublime we welcome you to our stage. We limit the show to one hour... so we ask for a 5 minute limit to your presentation.

You can also sign up at the event by arriving a few minutes early and getting your name on the list. 


We are a friendly and appreciative crowd!    Refreshments afterwards provided by cosponsor The Lorane Grange for which donations are welcome. 

The Rural Art Center has received a grant from Lane County Cultural Coalition, funded by the Oregon Country Fair and the Umpqua Indian Foudation  to help fund our 2020 After School Arts program.  This year, we will offer have 10 sessions of 3 hours each on the days that school lets out early, but we will also have a free weekly after-school ukulele club taught by Pat Dixon October through mid-June. 

Artist in Residence Program at Crow High School

Creates New Murals

Esteban Camacho Steffensen

October 14, 2015; Crow Middle School Students present their mural to Crow Middle/High School. Through a Target grant, the Rural Art Center was able to bring muralist Jessilyn Brinkerhoff to work with the American History and Literature classes to compose and paint the 2.5' x 20' mural. It will hang in the library.

The 2014/2015  Artist in Residence Program at Crow High School created a mural

with the help of muralist, Esteban Camacho Steffensen 


Thanks in part to funding from the Lane County Cultural Coalition and Target for grant support.
