Upcoming Art Exhibits

Charlie Haughey

A Weather Walked In

Charlie Haughey was drafted into the US Army in 1967 and served a tour of duty with the 25th Infantry Division from 1968-1969. While walking as a rifleman, he shot nearly 3,000 photographs, which he later put into boxes and stored for 45 years. In 2012, a chance encounter with producer Kris Regentin brought the image collection out of storage and into a scanner. Charlie's work has since been featured in international press pieces, a fine art book of photographs, and multiple acclaimed gallery showings. His images were recently licensed by Ken Burns and Florentine Films for the 17 part documentary The Vietnam War. A self-taught photographer, Charlie remains a humble, unlikely artist at 75 years old.

About the Art Gallery

Lower Columbia College's art gallery located in the Rose Center for the Arts features twenty foot high walls with ample space and complete flexibility for the display of art. The second level of the gallery is more intimate in nature and displays special items and the college's permanent collection, much of which has been donated. Natural light from a slot skylight gently illuminates the room to enhance the overall experience in the gallery.
