This performance is a result of our partnership with The Blackfish Gallery “About Love Festival,” Wilsonville Arts & Culture Council, Wilsonville Festival of Arts, The Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble (PJCE) & Lost Productions.
While we celebrate this wonderful exhibition, we are reminded that the mission of the Charbonneau Arts Association is to provide a venue for the appreciation and promotion of visual arts and other fine arts, create opportunity for local public high school students to exhibit and demonstrate their art and provide ongoing support for the public school art programs in the Wilsonville and Canby areas of Clackamas County.
We want to thank our many sponsors who are recognized through out the virtual exhibition for their support of this event and for their donor support to Charbonneau Arts Association as they annually plan and present the Charbonneau Festival of the Arts to ensure financial resources are available to our local hgh schools. And we thank our auction donors, continuing partners, and our many volunteers who make this possible every year.
