Art Gallery


Mission Statement

The Art Center Gallery established in 1979 and uniquely overlooking the Columbia River, is an important community-gathering place and forum for critical, contemporary art dialogue.

The Gallery is dedicated to:

  • Sustaining and promoting contemporary art and visual culture through exhibitions and programming, which creates a stimulating environment conducive to learning and creative expression.
  • Enriching the cultural life of the campus, the local community, and the North Coast region.
  • Providing local and statewide leadership in the exhibition of contemporary art through regional, national, and international exhibitions.
  • Enhancing visual literacy and critical thinking while promoting the highest professional standards of artistry and craft.
  • Fusing our instructional programs in the Arts and Humanities directly to the cultural vitality of the community.
