PENDLETON — The Betty Feves Memorial Gallery is accepting proposals for consideration for the 2022-23 academic year. The call for artists includes both established and emerging artists.

Located at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, the exhibit space aims to connect emerging and established artists with BMCC students, staff and the general public.

The gallery’s namesake is Betty Feves, who moved to Pendleton in 1945. She began exhibiting her work in 1952 and became an internationally known ceramic artist. Feves helped mold the work of many artists, offering art apprenticeships in her studio.

The Arts Council of Pendleton raised money for a commissioned piece by Feves for the Vert Auditorium. However, she died before it was complete, and the funds then were used to create a gallery in her memory.

To be considered for the 2022-23 academic year, submissions must be received by Feb. 1, 2022. For more information, call 541-278-5952 or visit www.bluecc.edu/community/feves-art-gallery.
