2016 Biennial – Royal Nebeker Art Gallery, Clatsop Community College
The Portland 2016 Biennial is a two-month celebration of the here and now that showcases 34 artists at 25 partner venues in 13 communities across the state – the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of Oregon art ever. Presented by Disjecta Contemporary Art Center.
The CCC Royal Nebeker Art Gallery, established in 1979 and uniquely overlooking the Columbia River, is an important community-gathering place and forum for critical, contemporary art dialogue. Formally named CCC Art Gallery, it was renamed in the 2015-2016 Academic Year in honor of artist, teacher and mentor Royal Nebeker. The Gallery is dedicated to: sustaining and promoting contemporary art and visual culture through exhibitions and programming, which creates a stimulating environment conducive to learning and creative expression; enriching the cultural life of the campus, the local community, and the North Coast region; providing local and statewide leadership in the exhibition of contemporary art through regional, national, and international exhibitions; enhancing visual literacy and critical thinking while promoting the highest professional standards of artistry and craft; and fusing our instructional programs in the Arts and Humanities directly to the cultural vitality of the community.
