Cawein Gallery

Located at the heart of Pacific University, the Kathrin Cawein Gallery of Art is integrated into the southeast corner of the Harvey W. Scott building. The art gallery represents something very special for the academic and creative climates of the campus and surrounding region.

The gallery is named in recognition of the late Kathrin Cawein of New York, who beyond being an accomplished printmaker and contributor to Pacific University, established an endowed scholarship for students of the arts at Pacific.

Exhibits change monthly throughout the academic year and are provided at no cost to the public through the Department of Art. This program constitutes a service that benefits both the University community and the surrounding region. Receptions with exhibiting artists at the openings of their showings provide an opportunity for community enrichment and cultural growth. Artist Talks are also scheduled to coincide with the exhibit schedule, to give the artist a chance to share their creative inspirations and motivations related to the works on display.
