The Columbia City Gallery is an artists’ collective that brings together emerging and professional artists working in diverse media, including representational and abstract painting, prints, mixed media, sculpture, glass, ceramics, enamel and hand crafted jewelry.

The mission of the gallery is to provide an exhibition space for local artists, an educational center for creative endeavors and a gathering place for our neighbors to experience art. Founded in 1999, the gallery is a lively center of the community. The gallery is located in the heart of the vibrant Historic District of Columbia City.

SouthEast Effective Development is the parent organization for the Columbia City Gallery.
