Welcome to the Pendleton Center for the Arts… a great place to express your creative self and enjoy the creative work of others. 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. Read our statement on diversity, equity, & inclusion HERE, along with our Director’s letter about pronouns.
