Crow's Shadow Institute for the Arts


August 4 - October 27, 2023

About the Show

All of the work in this exhibition has been created in the last three years by eight artist-in-residents at Crow's Shadow.
Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts is located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in Pendleton, Oregon, and was founded by influential painter and printmaker James Lavadour (Walla Walla, b. 1951). From the beginning, Crow’s Shadow’s mission is “to provide a creative conduit for education, social, and economic opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development.” The Institute has grown to be one of the foremost printmaking ateliers in the country, attracting Native and non-Native artists from around the world to make prints under the guidance of its resident Master Printer. For this body of prints, the Master Printer is Judith Baumann. Works created at Crow’s Shadow can be found in many prominent private and public collections. The prints on view are a small sampling of the skilled workmanship and creativity being promoted and fostered by this critical Pacific Northwest institution.
