Pacific Northwest Plein Air in the Columbia River Gorge
PACIFIC NORTHWEST PLEIN AIR IN THE COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE
JULY 31 – AUGUST 27, 2022
Painters from throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond gather to capture the splendor of the Columbia River Gorge during a four-day paint out. After four days of painting en plein air, works are displayed at Maryhill, with prizes awarded to the most exceptional works. Awards will be given in a number of categories, including “Best Sky,” “Best Mountain,” “Best Water,” “Maryhill Museum Award,” and a museum purchase award.
Our Juror for 2022 is Paul Kratter
Paintings are available for purchase 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.
THANK YOU to our SPONSORS: Friends of the Columbia Gorge; Scottsdale Artists’ School; Tokki Art Supply, Hood River; Dave Burbach Photography; Gamblin Artists Colors; Kathleen Marquart; Byron & Sue Henry; Stephen & Laura Muehleck
