Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts

Pendleton, OR


Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts [CSIA] is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, founded in 1992 by the painter James Lavadour, as a creative outlet and economic driver for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in rural eastern Oregon. CSIA’s mission is to provide a creative conduit for educational, social, and economic opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development. Since 2001 we have operated Crow’s Shadow Press, an invitational artist-in-residency program focused on contemporary Native and Indigenous artists from across North America. Crow’s Shadow consistently publishes high quality, evocative prints from a diverse range of established and emerging artists. Our catalog includes lithographs, monoprints, monotypes, and relief prints from over 50 different artist-in-residencies.

Featured Artists:
Marie Watt (Seneca), Marwin Begaye (Navajo/Diné), Avantika Bawa, Modou Dieng, Jim Denomie (Ojibwe), Jeffrey Gibson (Choctaw/Cherokee), Victor Maldonado, Lillian Pitt (Warm Springs)
