Columbia Center for the Arts and The Dalles Art Center collaborate to bring the ceramic exhibition Beyond the Construct to The Gorge!

Thanks to the lowered Covid restrictions CCA and The Dalles Art Center will be having a First Friday reception: CCAs from 5-7pm and TDAC`s from 6-8pm on Friday May 7th.

Prize winner will of the show will be announced at 6:30pm at TDAC and will be live-streamed at CCA.

CCA is excited to team up with The Dalles Art Center on our first of an ongoing collaborative Biennial exhibits, each focused on a different medium. The first of these biennials, Beyond the Construct, highlights ceramic work from around the Pacific Northwest. Beyond the Construct is an opportunity to showcase the expressive and functional capacities of clay. The exhibit showcases works by Aisha Harrison, Baba Wague, Dirk Staschke, Ivan Carmona, Joe Davis, Lisa Conway, Maya Vivas, PK Hoffman, and Stacy Jo Scott, Willie Little. In addition, 21 juried artists have been selected to exhibit two pieces of work each: one piece representing the functional aspect of their practice, and one piece representing the expressive side. All artists will be divided between each Center showing a total of 16 artists at both galleries.

The juror, Brett Binford, is an artist and entrepreneur residing in Portland, Oregon. He is the co-owner/co-founder of Mudshark Studios, Eutectic Gallery, Kept Goods, and Clay Street.

The juried artists were asked to submit two pieces of work: (1) piece representing the functional aspect of their practice, and (1) piece representing the expressive side.

This exhibition opens May 7th and and runs through May 29th. Gallery hours are 11-5pm Tuesday-Saturday. Due to Covid-19 public spaces restrictions, we will be monitoring visitor capacity, providing sanitation at the door, upholding 6’ social distancing, and requiring visitors to wear masks.
