“Estacada on the
Clackamas, The Powerhouse Project” an exhibit featuring the work of 24 artists is
on display at the CCC Wilsonville campus and will continue through September 13.
Over two days in
May of 2012, 24 artists from Estacada and the Portland area spent hours
exploring all aspects of the Faraday Powerhouse, Diversion Dam and Lake. During
this “art jam” they sketched, took photographs and painted images of this
historic PGE facility, then returned to their studios to create a final work. The
artists’ work in a variety of mediums has been on display in several locations
in the county and at PGE headquarters in Portland.
