Watercolor by Jan Muir
The Columbia Art Gallery invites artists and artist groups to submit proposals for an exhibition in the Gallery at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River, Oregon.

About the Facility
The 10,000 square foot building located in the heart of historic downtown Hood River was beautifully restored in 2005.
Possible exhibition space includes the 800 square foot Lobby and the designated Show space inside the Gallery (approximately 425 square feet). Exhibits rotate every 4 weeks and feature a mix of local emerging artists and artists from the Columbia Gorge region.
Artists are chosen by the Show Selection Committee of the Columbia Center for the Arts, who meet twice yearly. (Please note deadlines above.)
