The Pacific Northwest is known for its amazing rivers – many of which pour into the Columbia. The Columbia is a source of livelihood, commerce, recreation, transportation, food, and irrigation.

Applications Open for Don’t Quit Your Day Job 2021


Exhibition September 3 – 25, 2021

What does it mean to be an artist who is also a worker? How does a worker find ways to develop their art while also keeping food on the table and a roof over their head? How does a person manage the compulsion to create art within the context of the day job workday? And what does that do to the artist, and to the art?

For this show, Columbia Center for the Arts is seeking to showcase the art and the stories of artists with day jobs.

Applications Open for Fever Dream: Abstract Interpretations of  Dreamscapes & Nightmares


Exhibition October 1st – 30th, 2021

Fever dream is inspired by the artists’ abstract interpretations of their personal dreamscapes and nightmares. From surreal landscapes to the things that lurk in the shadows of the mind, Fever Dream is a rollercoaster ride through lunacy and the macabre.

This show will be curated by Tom Lehmann of Blue Collar Agency in Hood River Oregon.
