The arts inspire us. They foster curiosity, provoke new ideas, and impel conversations. Throughout the year, Scalehouse presents exhibitions, events and speakers featuring artists, designers, writers, filmmakers, creative thinkers, and problem solvers.

Bend Design’s in-person creative event convenes artists, designers and creative thinkers from a diverse range of practices and professions for talks, shows, workshops, screenings, and problem-solving sessions.

In partnership with OSU-Cascades and BendFilm, Scalehouse presents a variety of provocative films and programming throughout the year including the BendFilm Scramble and the Oregon State International Film Festival.

In collaboration with Arts & Culture Alliance and the City of Bend, Scalehouse introduced Bend’s first Creative Laureate Jason Graham, aka MOsley WOtta. He is an American visual artist, performer, educator, speaker, and hiphop producer residing in Central Oregon since 1992.

We are partnering with The Bulletin to raise funds to help Central Oregon’s creative artists -- musicians, visual artists, performers and creative workers — who have experienced financial loss and unexpected expenses due to COVID-19. 

 Art + Words is a multi-disciplinary event that convenes writers, creative thinkers, performers and artists to encourage collaboration and inspiration across artforms. 

Scalehouse is partnering with Americans for the Arts to announce the launch of Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 (AEP6), the sixth national study of the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture industry.

The Community-Based Mural Project aims to use art and creativity to provoke thought, challenge assumptions and shape how the community defines houselessness.

The Scalehouse Gallery is located in the Tin Pan Alley in downtown Bend, is dedicated to the display and discussion of emerging and established contemporary artists.

Talks about imagery and ideas, practice and process, creativity and contemporary culture with artists and visionaries. In partnership with OSU-Cascades, these talks take place on the OSU-Cascades campus, or online.

Scalehouse Gallery is home to a variety of events including Scalehouse member appreciation night, artist talks, and exhibition openings. In addition, we also host events such as poetry readings, fundraising dinners, and cultural events supporting local nonprofits and social causes.

The Patricia Clark Studio honors Pat’s legacy and her original vision of Scalehouse by providing free studio space to working artists, a space for arts education programming, and a place to remember Pat.
