Art Poetry Exhibit

There are two exhibitions of the words and images of the young women at the Oak Creek Oregon Youth Authority Facility.

The first exhibit is underway:
May 4 – June 30
Albany Main Library
2450 14th Ave. SE, Albany
The reception is on June 19, 6:30 – 8:30.

The second exhibit will be in Salem:
July 1 – July 31
Project Space
211 Commercial St. NE, Salem
The reception for this exhibit will be July 1, 5:00 – 700.

“The work on display was created during two programs sponsored by The Art Center’s At-Risk Program, during which the young women worked with a poet and a photographer to create photo montages and a book of poetry and photographs. The work is powerful, and gives one a glimpse of these young women’s lives and their struglle to change them.” — Cheryl French,
At-Risk Youth Arts Education Coordinator

Calapooia Takes a Walk

“Calapooia” Takes a Walk – Albany Carousel carvers (L-R) Jack Giles, David Burback, and Cindy Purkey make a very special delivery of the carousel horse named Calapooia.

Gallery Calapooia is the proud new home of “Calapooia,” one of the wonderful carousel horses from the Albany Carousel. With Gallery Calapooia being just down 1st Avenue from the Carousel Studio, carousel carvers Cindy Purkey, David Burback and Jack Giles (lead carver) took Calapooia for a walk to its new home. Gallery visitors will have the pleasure of seeing this beautifully carved and painted horse.

Calapooia enters Gallery Calapooia

Calapooia enters Gallery Calapooia, a delightful work of art among artwork.

Visitors can see Calapooia whenever the gallery is open (regular hours are 11 – 6, Tues – Sat) until the carousel is ready to be assembled. And be sure to stop by the carousel studio at 503 1st Ave W to see the other fantastic animals currently being carved and painted.
