Crow's Shadow Press

Pendleton, OR

Crow’s Shadow Press is located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in the foothills of Oregon’s Blue Mountains. Crow’s Shadow is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization formed in 1992 by local artists James Lavadour (Walla Walla) and Phillip Cash Cash (Cayuse and Nez Perce). From 2001-2017 Frank Janzen was CSIA’s Master Printer, and his hiring initiated the more focused print publication and artist residency components at Crow’s Shadow, which continue to this day. In 2017 Judith Baumann joined Crow’s Shadow as the new Master Printer. Our mission is to provide a creative conduit for educational, social, and economic opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development. In 2017 CSIA celebrated the 25 Anniversary of the organization’s founding, with an exhibition curated by Dr. Rebecca Dobkins (Willamette University and Hallie Ford Museum of Art) and an accompanying publication.  Over the last 26 years, Crow’s Shadow has evolved into a world-class studio focused on contemporary fine art printmaking.
