 Big Show of Little Art featured at Gallery Calapooia in February

Gallery Calapooia’s first community-wide art show, The Big Show of Little Art, will be on display during February.

The show celebrates the art work of 114 artists from the mid-valley communities of Adair Village, Albany, Brownsville, Corvallis, Crawfordsville, Halsey, Jefferson, Lebanon, Philomath and Tangent, as well as Dayton, Eugene, Pacific City, Portland and Salem. One hundred seventy-five entries were received from artists of all ages.

All the work is 8×8 inches in size and includes oil paintings, mixed media, calligraphy, sculpture, photography, watercolors, acrylics, colored pencil, clay and fiber art. The work will be on display Jan. 30 to Feb. 24.

An artist’s reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2, will include the art work of the 18 member artists of Gallery Calapooia as well as The Big Show of Little Art. Cookies and punch will be served.

Gallery Calapooia Artists Showing at the Albany Public Library

Gallery Calapooia artists are showing their work at the Main branch of the Albany Public Library through February 27, 2018. A variety of work is on display, including watercolor paintings, calligraphy, monoprints and linocuts, vinyl images, glass wall hangings and more.

The Library is located at 2450 14 th Ave SE, in Albany, near the Heritage Mall. Gallery Calapooia artists’ work will be displayed throughout the 2 nd floor. The main branch of the Albany Library is open from 10 am to 8 pm, Monday through Wednesday, from 10 am to 6 pm, Thursday and Friday, and from 1 pm to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

We hope you have the chance to see the work at the Library. The Library is an excellent venue for large works that are displayed less frequently at the Gallery due to space constraints, so you may see some work in the Library show you have not seen before.

The Library is always looking for community artists to show in their space. If you or someone you know is interested in showing at the Library, contact LaRee Dominguez at laree.dominguez@cityofalbany.net

Thanks For Your Support!

Gallery Calapooia is now in its fifth year of operation and we thank you for your support. Your visits to the gallery, attendance at our monthly First Friday receptions, and purchases of art work have made our gallery a success. We couldn’t have done it without you.

As we look ahead to 2018 and our dreams for partnering with the Albany community in support of the arts, we invite you to consider making an end-of-year, tax-deductible donation to the gallery which is a non-profit, 501(c)(3). Our plans for the new year include expanding our outreach to the public with our February Big Show of Little Art to showcase the art of members of the community. This free, non-juried show will be open to all ages. (see related story) We will also continue to sell tote bags to raise funds for public art. 100% of the profits goes to the public art fund. It’s a great way to get a sturdy tote bag and support the arts.

Gallery Calapooia was organized in 2013 to encourage the creation, showing, sale and appreciation of art in Albany and the surrounding area. As a local cooperative art gallery, we are proud to be a part of the thriving downtown scene. We participate in the Wine Walk, trick or treating, the Art and Music Festival, Shop Small Saturday, Downtown Unwrapped and the Twice Around Parade as well as exhibiting at Albany City Hall, Albany Public Library, Sybaris Restaurant, and Brick and Mortar.

Donations can be brought to the gallery or mailed to:
