Resurgence: Rivers of the Pacific Northwest – A Group Exhibit

Opening Reception: First Thursday, December 3rd 6-8pm

resurge1To close out the year we are honored to present a group exhibit featuring some of the finest artwork and most significant Pacific Northwest Coast artists working today.

Every river generates a unique ecosystem and culture to go with it. Just as rivers carry fish, feed forests and carve through rock in individual ways, they also influence the peoples who live on their banks and use them for transportation. From raging rivers to placid waters, revitalized watersheds to endangered places, we ask our artists reflect on rivers that have meaning in their lives and bring us to sacred places with their art. Please join us as we bring together the region’s finest artists to give proper due to our Rivers, their people, and the surrounding environments. We honor the resilience of watersheds, and also their fragility; their remarkable ability to connect peoples; to feed and carry us; to sustain those who rely on them.

We are excited to curate an exhibit we hope will make an important contribution to a greater and deeper understanding and celebration of our rivers such as the Chefornak, Copper, Cowlitz, Columbia, Deschutes, Duwamish, Elwha, Fraser, Nass, Nisqually, Nooksack, Puyallup, Sauk,Skagit, Skeena, Skokomish, Stikine, and Stillaguamish.
