Event Details

Painters from throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond gather annually in the Columbia River Gorge to capture the incredible light and views.

In 2021 artists will spend four days from July 26 to 29 artists painting en plein air at various locations throughout the Gorge, including on the grounds of Maryhill. Juror Peggi Kroll Robert will award prizes to the most exceptional works in a number of categories, including “Best Sky,” “Best Mountain,” “Best Water,” “Maryhill Museum Award,” and a museum purchase award.

The paintings are then on view and available for purchase August 1 through August 28, 2021 in the Event Sales Gallery in the museum’s 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.
