Artist Talk: Claire Dibble

Artist Talk: Claire Dibble

Free and open to the public on October 4th, 2019 7 pm, during First Friday!

Claire Dibble is an artist, photographer, and writer based in Golden, BC. Place is important to Claire, and she feels connected to several previous stomping grounds, including the coast of Maine, Chile, the Tetons, and Kauai. Travel, adventure, and exploring new parts are the things that get her going.

Claire will be traveling the length of the Columbia River in summer 2019, kayaking from source to sea over a period of 3 months as part of her Watershed Moments project.

The stories that most capture Claire’s attention are full of good. They speak of hope, inspiration, innovation, and simple living. They highlight the grand potential inside people, businesses, and organizations. They are the stories that foster connection.


The Columbia River flows through my town, through my new country and old. It stretches north through big valleys and south over many dams. And these days, it flows through my mind on the regular. That’s because I’ve recently received word that funding (from CKCA) for a big personal and social practice art project has come through. This summer I’ll be paddling from the headwaters to the sea on the Columbia. Three months, 2000 kilometers. It’s a solo mission, at least on paper. But I’m inviting people (that’s you) to join me for any section that intrigues.


Claire will be in Hood River and give a talk about her journey in the theater at 7pm.
