In 2023, Maryhill Museum of Art will feature an exhibition on works of art that display nighttime scenes, so-called Nocturnes. From its wide ranging and eclectic collection, the Museum with one foot in the past and another in the future, offers cityscapes and landscapes captured at twilight and after dark. Featured works include Sailing Ships, Nantucket Light by Edward Moran, The Funeral of Victor Hugo by Alfred Phillipe Roll, multiple nighttime scenes of Portland streets by Guy Gilray and Michael Flohr, and a large diptych by Okanagan/Sinixt artist Joe Feddersen.
