Traditional 19th century landscape paintings, impressionist views of the north coast, and vibrant abstractions from the 1940s and 50s make this exhibit a guided tour of exceptional, early Oregon artists’ 100-year, stylistic evolution. Many paintings in the exhibit originated in Manzanita – all capture Oregon’s magic.

Opening Reception April 2, 1 pm -5 pm. Author Ginny Allen of the newly published “Oregon Painters, Landscape to Modernism, 1859-1959” will be signing books from 2-4. The $55 book is available for purchase at the gallery.

The exhibit was inspired, and artwork was curated, from the recently published second edition of the book Oregon Painters, Landscape to Modernism, 1859-1959. The book is available through Oregon State University Press and found at many local bookstores. Authors Ginny Allen and Jody Klevit spent years gathering information about Oregon’s early painters and compiling it in this encyclopedic, coffee table, book. The exhibit showcases many of the color reproductions used in the book. The beautiful, historic paintings, borrowed from private collections, are rarely available for public viewing, making this a “must see” exhibition for those interested in both regional fine art and Oregon State history.
