Exquisite Gorge Project Begins
Maryhill Museum of Art’s Exquisite Gorge Project is underway, with eleven artists slated to work in communities along the Columbia River from the Willamette to the Snake River this summer to create a 66-foot woodblock print. The collaborative printmaking project will connect artists and communities as they explore their assigned stretch of river and carve images on 4 x 6 foot wood panels. Each completed panel will then be connected end-to-end and printed using a steamroller at Maryhill on August 24. Events associated with the project are planned, including artist Neal Harrington talking about it at The Dalles Farmers Market in City Park on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. A full list of events is available at maryhillmuseum.org.
