This place is awesome, and potentially underrated. Not only do they have some pretty nice art exhibits, their gift store has some very nice options for purchase. In addition to that, there are classes offered. I'm thinking specifically of the music camp they do in...More

Their changing exhibits are always fun. They have classes for youth and adults with many free events. My favorite part is the gallery of the local artists' crafts for sale. Besides this being a historical Carnegie Library building, there is always something happening.

Every time I am in town, I drop by to see the local exhibit. Some times it is school children or art classes, sometimes adjudicated work, sometimes a wonderful well-known artist. There are classes here in the cool basement as well as special events.

We're so glad you got a chance to see the exhibit. We'll be sad when we have to pack it up. Hope to see you here at PCA again.

You won't find a better place to buy gifts (jewelry, books, cards --very reasonable), see spectacular art or attend one of their many programs -- a special favorite is open mike night.

The art on exhbit was nothing to rave about (in my non-artist opinion) but the building itself (Carnegie Fund) is gorgeous. If you're walking around Pendleton, take a "boo".
