Hal E. Bishop was a member of the Oregon Society of Artists and the Southern Oregon Society of Artists. His paintings are in many collections of the Southern Oregon Historical Society and he has exhibited at the Portland Art Museum and the Oregon Society of Artists. His specialty is landscapes, figurative, and murals. From the 1940s to the 1960s, Bishop created murals for buildings in Medford, but many of those structures have been razed, leaving only a few surviving murals on canvas. Some of his smaller paintings can still be found, and his larger paintings depicted scenes from Oregon history and the area surrounding Medford. He and his wife, Flora, have been credited with creating a greater awareness of art in the Rogue Valley, and worked together to establish the Southern Oregon Society of Artists.
