The Pendleton Center for the Arts is a great place to view, buy and make art. We offer fine arts exhibits, live music performances, arts education for youth, teens and adults, and a great venue for purchasing hand-crafted fine gifts made by regional artists.

 

Located in the heart of Eastern Oregon, our beautifully restored 1916 Carnegie Library building is an architectural treasure in its own right. The Center caps one end of a downtown core that is regaining its vitality and charm. Community members use the building for weddings, receptions, meetings and parties of all kind.

 

You can take a quick video tour of the building HERE.
