When the spring wildflowers arrive in the Columbia River Gorge in 2024, they will be greeted by more than 40 artists who will be working to capture their beauty.

Pacific Northwest Plein Air in the Columbia River Gorge is a “wet paint” show. Purchased artworks are taken home by their buyers when they are sold.

Look for artists painting in the Gorge between April 22–25, including on the museum grounds. Follow @maryhillmuseum and #pnwpleinair2024 to see artists in action!

Completed paintings will be available for purchase in the museum’s M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center from April 28–May 27. A portion of the proceeds support Maryhill Museum of Art.

Maryhill Museum of Art is pleased to partner with Friends of the Columbia Gorge to showcase the connection between arts and conservation.
