Located in the heart of Eastern Oregon, our beautifully restored 1916 Carnegie Library building overlooks the Umatilla River at the north end of Pendleton’s charming downtown. Browse the galleries, shop for finely crafted wearable and functional art, take a free or low-cost class, take in a live music, literary arts or dance event, or hold your own event in our historic building.

Dani Joy is a California based singer/songwriter/instructor and proud featured artist of Ko’aloha Ukulele. Her world influenced musical style is soothing and romantic, blending old time jazz with Bossa nova/exotica genres. She is most noted for her crooning alto vocals and tasteful ukulele fingerpicking & accompaniment. This special engagement at PCA is made possible through the generous support of the Pendleton Ukulele Players (PUPs).
Need a little taste of her sound? Check it out HERE.
Don’t miss this solo exhibit by one of our favorite regional artists. Katherine’s work is bold, colorful, and the perfect compliment to a beautiful summer day. Read all about Katherine’s work HERE.
