First Friday Art Walk - at the AHC
We are now participating in the Central Eastside Arts District's First Friday Art Walk. The AHC galleries will stay open later and we'll feature something special for the art-walking crowd each month.
Artist exhibits are held monthly with opening receptions on most First Fridays. Receptions are free and open to the public. Work is for sale, and 25 percent of all sales go to support the educational programs of the AHC. The remaining 75% of sales go directly to the artist.
First priority for shows goes to AHC members, however we are open to inquiries from all artists. If you are interested in exhibiting your work in our wonderful space, come check out one of our shows then email barbarap at visitahc.org for more information.
Art exhibits are not accessible during education programs and private events. Feel free to call and check the schedule before visiting.
Kathryn Liu is a Junior at Lincoln High School in the full International Baccalaureate program. She studies many interesting and challenging subjects but for her, the most important and enjoyable part of her life happens when she is making art! Kathryn has had some sort of art instrument in her hand since she was a toddler. Her exhibit at the Architectural Heritage Center will feature a few of her early pieces and will highlight her artistic development in recent years.
Though photography is a passion, Kathryn also enjoys drawing in ink and charcoal and she’s been experimenting a bit with watercolors and acrylic.
The AHC is excited to host the exhibit of this unique, forty foot long quilt made by eighteen Central Oregon master quilters. The community’s effort to revitalize the two rivers that frame the Sisters Country (Whychus Creek and the Metolius River) inspired the creation of this quilted masterpiece. With a special focus on revitalizing Whychus Creek which runs through Sisters, Two Rivers, Three Sisters is the story of a river and a community coming together. Thanks to the efforts of many partners, water once again flows in Whychus Creek. Native fish are returning to spawn for the first time in 40 years and a community is re-discovering a gem in its own backyard. Two Rivers, Three Sisters celebrates Whychus Creek’s rebirth. This exhibition is a unique showcase of the strengths of Sisters: rich artistic talent, stunning landscapes and partnerships that truly make a difference.
