Perched high above the Columbia River, the Maryhill Museum of Art is housed in an illustrious Beaux Arts-style mansion built in the early 20th century by entrepreneur Sam Hill. The museum has opened a new exhibition titled “West Coast Woodcut: Contemporary Relief Prints by Regional Artists” that will run through November 15, 2019.
The exhibition explores the natural, social and urban worlds of the West Coast through 60 woodcut prints, linocuts and wood engravings, all done by local artists in Washington, Oregon and California. The prints cover a vast array of ideas and social issues on the West Coast, such as homelessness, immigration, natural resource management and environmental issues, as well as showcasing the beautiful landscapes and flora of the northwest.
Maryhill Museum of Art has a substantial world-class permanent collection and hosts quality rotating exhibits year-round. The works for the new exhibition have been taken from Maryhill’s permanent collection.
