CCC Wilsonville to Exhibit ‘The Powerhouse Project’(1)

 “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.

Stereo photographs by Clackamas Community College webmaster Dean Walch are among the art work on display.

The Estacada Arts Commission has collaborated with PGE on the Powerhouse Project for the past four years. Jane Reid, who represents Estacada on the CCC Board of Education, is also on the Estacada Arts Commission and has been the lead coordinator on the Powerhouse Project.

The CCC Wilsonville campus is located at 29353 Town Center Loop E. For more information, contact Joyce Gabriel at 503-594-0950.
