Cultural Abstractions, is an exhibition of work by Artist Joe Feddersen. Joe is a member of the Colville Tribe, which is part of the Plateau Indian tradition. In his practice, Feddersen examines the need to both honor the past and adapt to change.

The exhibit is curated by Todd Clark, founder of IMNDN. an organization whose mission is “to help Native artists achieve greater recognition, respect, and ultimately a place in the mainstream art world.” Clark will lead a conversation about Feddersen’s work at a special preview on Thursday, March 15 at 7:00 pm.

The student gallery will feature work by youth from the Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Tribe of Indians. Entitled, Culture is Prevention, the exhibit connects youth to their ancestors through the gift of cultural arts, which builds resiliency and strength to face the challenges of today’s complicated world.

Heat Wave is a juried exhibit of artists from High Fiber Diet, and will be exhibited in the Corridor Gallery. Each artist created a work that incorporates the color orange.

The Red Door Gallery features Tangible Link by artist Mika Aono, who currently works in the School of Art+Design at the University of Oregon.  Aono describes herself as an obsessive collector who seeks to solve the interconnectedness of things.

Gallery II will be the site for Majesty, paintings by Tamara English. English’s work explores the experience of the presence of the divine in life from an other-worldly perspective such as night-dreams.  Learn More here>
