Crow's Shadow Celebrating 25 Years


PENDLETON, Oregon - Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts[1] is pleased to announce that we will once again be sharing our work on S Main Street during the Pendleton Round-Up. Thanks to generous support from the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation and Harsch Investment Properties—major arts and Round-Up supporters—Crow’s Shadow work will be on view at 256 S. Main Street from Thursday September 14th through Saturday September 16th, right in the heart of downtown Pendleton. This special event coincides with Crow’s Shadow’s 25th Anniversary as a local arts institution and member of the greater Pendleton community.

The Crow’s Shadow Round-Up Gallery will feature a variety of works from our permanent collection including prominent regional, contemporary Native American artists such as James Lavadour, Wendy Red Star, and Rick Bartow along with prints from non-native artists who have participated in the Artist-in-Residency program, such as Samantha Wall and Pat Boas.

The exhibit will also feature prints by students from Nixya’awii Community School produced during a yearlong printmaking class, taught at CSIA by Master Printer, Frank Janzen.

Joining Crow’s Shadow in the space will be several local food and beverage purveyors offering tastes of their top selling or exclusive small batch products.
