Pendleton


Last week I spent some time in Pendleton, checking out the Art Center there. I had no idea how beautiful this building was. It was an old Carnegie library and the renovation is wonderful. The main gallery, where I will showing work in May, has a luminous golden light.

Roberta Lavadour is the director and we went over details about the building and ideas for the show. And so for the rest of the day, I was free to scout around with her husband Jim. He was kind with his time and we drove over hills in the reservation, checked out Crow Shadow Institute and his studio, where you see him here.



For those of you who would like to meet the artist, Organism is providing an opportunity to do just that. They are hosting a dinner party in celebration of hot Oregon artists and of course Jim is one. PORT provides the details here.
