Main & Co-op Gallery

We know that the Grande Ronde Valley is home to a vibrant community of artists. In homage to the wealth of talent that makes our little city so “La Grande,” The Big is our annual showcase of local artworks in all mediums.
December 6 – January 25

Featured Program

The Big Read broadens our understanding of the world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. Every winter, Fishtrap and its regional parters celebrate one great work of literature by providing events, discussions, and books to Wallowa and Union County schools, libraries, and community members.
February 19 - March 19
