OREGON CITY – The Clackamas Community College Alexander Gallery will present "Braided River: Lower Willamette Speaks" through April 29.

The environmentally conscious exhibition is created by The Braided Rivers Campaign, a group that seeks to bring awareness and educate the public on the history and health of the Willamette River.

The Braided Rivers Campaign includes residents, activists, artists and organizers that center on environmental justice for historically excluded people in the North Portland Harbor area, from the Broadway Bridge to Sauvie Island. Through painting, installation, photography and text, the exhibit showcases the Native American ancestors who stewarded the land and the diverse populations who worked on the river.

An opening event will be held Thursday, April 7, 2 p.m., and a panel discussion will be held Thursday, April 21, 2-4 p.m.

The Alexander Gallery is located in Niemeyer Center on the Oregon City campus, 19600 Molalla Ave., and is open Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., with the exception of campus holidays.

This exhibition is free and open to the public. For questions, contact Kate Simmons at 503-594-3032 or kates@clackamas.edu. For more information on Clackamas Community College's art exhibits and performances, visit www.clackamas.edu/art.
