Their art, which is made up of videos, paintings, photographs and more will be on display at the Estacada Public Library from Sept. 15 until early January.

Jane Reid of the the Estacada Area Arts Commission describes the project as a “multi-year exploration of (the) industrial structures that shaped Estacada’s history.”

Having already visited a number of powerhouses in the past, artists visited the Faraday Powerhouse, lake and diversion dam for two days in May. In total, 24 artists visited the site, which has been in operation since 1914.

A reception will be held for the artists from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14, at the library. Among the mediums represented are oil and acrylic painting, quilting, woodworking, felting, watercolors, collage, sculpture, ceramics and writing.
