Immerse In Art

The Gallery acts as a focal point for ideas presented in all manner of styles, which operate on both intellectual and tangible levels. This availability of art is not only an important aspect of culture for the broader community who view it, but also a valuable part of maintaining a healthy collegial environment for the CBC campus community.

The Esvelt Gallery brings art from visiting artists, faculty, and students through sponsorship from ASCBC and the Art Department. Our desire is to provide an artistic experience through a variety of exhibitions, artist lectures, workshops, and demonstrations, all of which are open to the student body and the public.

Admission is free and the public is welcome.

Art is an experience

Word play: prints from the crow’s shadow collection

Crow’s Shadow Printmaking Group Show
April 6 through April 26

Artist talk: April 6, 2023 @ 3pm in the Esvelt Gallery

Reception: April 6, 2023 following the artist talk

Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts is an independent non-profit located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Its mission is to provide a creative conduit for educational, social, and economic opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development. Originally founded in 1992 by the artist James Lavadour (Walla Walla), the organization hired its first Master Printer in 2001 and began publishing fine-art, limited edition, lithographic prints by leading contemporary Native American artists from across the United States. Over the past 20 years it has collaborated with artistic luminaries such as James Luna, Kay WalkingStick, Wendy Red Star, Rick Bartow, Marie Watt, and Joe Feddersen. Through a generous grant from The Ford Family Foundation, Crow’s Shadow has also hosted numerous Native and non-Native contemporary artists from throughout Oregon.

Word Play is a group exhibition of prints from the Crow’s Shadow Institute of Arts Collection. The artwork in this show intertwines typographic elements with visual imagery allowing the viewer to consider the intention between the words or letters as an influencing factor both compositionally and conceptually. The artists featured in this show explore a range of themes focused on identity, transformation, politics, memory, and power.

The exhibition runs from April 3 – April 26, 2024, with a gallery talk and Q&A with the Master Printer of Crow’s Shadow on April 6 at 3:00pm with a reception to follow in the gallery.

The Esvelt Gallery would like to thank ASCBC for their continued support.
