There are many talented craftspeople in Oregon and the Northwest. We expected to see works in a variety of materials on display. In fact, there appears to be no permanent collection, and the current exhibit was small and disappointing.

Wonderful special exhibitions. Mostly high quality Oregon crafts- pottery, glass, baskets, and weavings. Good quality and value in the shop as well.

If the exhibit is good this is a gem. It is really well designed and the exhibits are beautifully curated. I saw a very small exhibit of British Pottery which was free as the main hall was changing. But it is a lovely place The...More
