NOW through February 8

Crow's Shadow is participating in the West Coast Print Fair online this year instead of the canceled Portland Fine Print Fair (PFPF), normally held at the Portland Art Museum at the end of January. Our virtual booth highlights works from several of our most recently published Artists-in-Residence, including Ka'ila Farrell-Smith, Raven Chacon, Natalie Ball, Yoonhee Choi, Yoshi Kitai, Marwin Begaye, and Yatika Fields

The West Coast Print Fair is a virtual fair combining three previously in-person fairs: the PFPF, the Bay Area Fine Print Fair, and the Los Angeles Fine Print Fair. This event showcases over 40 print galleries and publishers, from now until February 8, 2021.⁠

Golden Spot Artists-in-Residence

The 2021 Crow's Shadow Golden Spot Artists-in-Residence: Jeremy Okai Davis, Lisa Jarrett, and Lehuauakea

Crow's Shadow is excited to share the news of our 2021 Golden Spot Artist-in-Residence award recipients: Jeremy Okai Davis, Lisa Jarrett, and Lehuauakea. Funded by The Ford Family Foundation's generous support, the annual Golden Spot Awards began at Crow's Shadow in 2010 to support regional artist residencies. Each of these Oregon-based artists will spend two weeks at Crow's Shadow developing limited-edition prints, which will be hand-pulled by Crow's Shadow's collaborative master printer, Judith Baumann. The final prints will enter our permanent collection; in previous years, prints from the Golden Spot residencies have traveled extensively to galleries and cultural institutions around the region and nationally. All three of these artists will be working in the Crow's Shadow studio for the first time.

New Crow's Shadow Van

We are pleased to announce the purchase of a new van for the business! Through a generous grant from Wildhorse Foundation, we were able to buy this 2019 Dodge Caravan that replaces the 2001 Ford Winstar that had been our workhorse for the past 20 years. The new van will see double duty as both a transport vehicle for groups such as our Nixya'awii Community School students, as well as an art delivery vehicle due to the stow-and-go seating system. Long-time Board Member Pat Hall Walters was instrumental in this big upgrade; we are grateful to her and to have a safe working vehicle again. Please join us in extending a huge thank-you to CTUIR's own Wildhorse Foundation for this community support! 

P.s. Wildhorse Resort has taken many extra precautions to handle Covid-19 safety proactively, so the cineplex, family fun center, and new bowling alley are temporarily closed. However, the restaurants (takeout only, but check out the Valentine's Day Special with king crab and short ribs), casino, and golf courses are open, so there are still lots of fun ways to support this important economic driver for the Tribes.
