In 2023, Pacific Northwest Plein Air in the Columbia River Gorge show and sale moves from its long-standing August appearance and appears in the M.J. Murdoch Charitable Trust Education Center from April 30–May 29. The paint-out has long been a gathering of painters from throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond to capture the splendor of the Columbia River Gorge. After painting en plein air, works are displayed at Maryhill, where they are for sale to benefit the museum. Prizes are awarded to the most exceptional works.
