CCA is excited to team up with The Dalles Art Center on our first of an ongoing collaborative Biennial exhibits, each focused on a different medium. The first of these biennials, Beyond the Construct, highlights ceramic work from around the Pacific Northwest. Beyond the Construct is an opportunity to showcase the expressive and functional capacities of clay. The exhibit showcases works by Aisha Harrison, Baba Wague, Dirk Staschke, Ivan Carmona, Joe Davis, Lisa Conway, Maya Vivas, PK Hoffman, and Stacy Jo Scott, Willie Little. In addition, 21 juried artists have been selected to exhibit two pieces of work each: one piece representing the functional aspect of their practice, and one piece representing the expressive side. All artists will be divided between each Center showing a total of 16 artists at both galleries.


The juror, Brett Binford, is an artist and entrepreneur residing in Portland, Oregon. He is the co-owner/co-founder of Mudshark Studios, Eutectic Gallery, Kept Goods, and Clay Street. For more information please visit the exhibition page here
