PCAC was established in September 2002 as a nonprofit art organization dedicated to supporting local artists and sustaining the cultural economy. PCAC aims to provide regional artists with a neutral forum in which they can showcase their work regionally, nationally, and internationally. It will also provide artists with a much-needed resource center to help educate and facilitate the research and creation of art across all disciplines.

Gavin Shettler founded his namesake gallery in the Everett Station Lofts in spring 2001. Over the last two years he has been integral in the development of Everett Station and curated 25 visual arts shows.

Bryan Suereth opened Disjecta Gallery in October 2000. The space serves as the most active multimedia arts outlet in Portland for showcasing film, dance, installation, visual art, music and literature. To date, Bryan has accommodated and curated over 100 interdisciplinary shows.
