Pendleton Center for the Arts

ALWAYS Free Admission

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.

TONIGHT! Jan. 30, 2015

Contra Dance! 7 pm

 

Come and enjoy great live music provided by Isaac Callender and other top-notch musicians and partake is some fun social dancing. Never been to a contra dance before?? This is a great way to learn about it and try your hand (umm, feet…) at it.

$5 per person or $8 per pair. Refreshments available.

 

Contra dance refers to several partnered folk dance styles in which couples dance in two facing lines or in a group of four. It has mixed origins from English country dance and French dance styles in the 17th century. It’s also a great way to meet people in a relaxed, casual atmosphere.

Come in the downstairs door at the Arts Center. Follow the sound of music!
