The Confluence: Art in Twisp

The Confluence brings art, artists and community together by:

  • Promoting established and emerging artists and putting money in their pockets through the sale of art.

  • Curating an art-filled gathering space, welcoming all segments of our rural community.

  • Advocating for the arts as an essential component of a healthy rural economy.


The Confluence was started by a small and forward-thinking group of artists in 1988, who felt the Methow Valley needed a place to bring the community together through the celebration of the visual arts. Since then, The Confluence has become a cultural landmark in downtown Twisp curating fourteen solo and group exhibits every year, showcasing the work of Okanogan County artists in a warm and inviting gathering space, and inviting all segments of our rural community to celebrate art. In addition to their professional gallery space, The Confluence also boasts an amazing array of jewelry, ceramics, textiles, and other one-of-a-kind items in the Gift Shop.

Through their curation of exhibits and the gift shop, they have been able to make an impact on our local economy by putting money back in the pockets of working artists. The Confluence’s other programming includes the Trashion Show and the Methow Valley Home Tour.
