Event Details

Drawing on a long tradition of painting in the open air, Pacific Northwest Plein Air in the Columbia River Gorge attracts some of the finest painters from the Pacific Northwest and from across the country to capture the stunning light and inspiring vistas of the Columbia River Gorge. After four days of painting, works are displayed at Maryhill with jurors awarding prizes to the most exceptional works.  Join us to view the “fresh” paintings artists created in plein air, meet the artists, and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres. Artwork will be available for purchase, with a percentage of the sales benefiting Maryhill. Awards will be given in a number of categories, including “Best Sky,” “Best Mountain,” “Best Water,” “Maryhill Museum of Art Award,” and a purchase award.

Paintings will remain on view and available for purchase August 4 through August 24, 2019 in the Event Sales Gallery in the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center. Proceeds support Maryhill Museum of Art. As work is sold and removed, other work created during the paint-out will replace it.
