November 2021

The museum closes for the season November 15. We will re-open March 15, 2022. 
There is still lots going on at Maryhill!
Read on for information about upcoming programs
and a sneak peek at our 2022 season.
Saturday, November 6 | 1 PM 
As an introduction to the Exquisite Gorge Project II: Fiber Arts, Carolyn Hazel Drake, one of the 13 participating artists, will give us a live peek into her workshop and creative process. After the tour, there will be time for questions.

Carolyn is partnered with the Goldendale Community Library, who is hosting this program. She will also present two more programs with the library as her art piece is progressing. Carolyn’s final artwork will be displayed in front of the Goldendale Library for the month of July 2022. The piece will then be moved to Maryhill Museum of Art, where it will be installed with the remaining art pieces to form the complete EGPII work.

Carolyn Hazel Drake is a Portland-based sculptor and third-generation Oregonian. Her work integrates textiles, ceramics, and domestic objects assembled and layered through traditional craft techniques and collage. Her meticulous handwork, made of tiny, repetitive marks or stitches, creates a visual effect of intricacy and obsessiveness that is intended to elicit a flow or out-of-body meditative state. Drake references devotional objects, archetypal imagery, and folktales to create work that feels familiar yet cryptic.

Northwest/Southwest: Indigenous Art After 1980 
March 15–November 15, 2022 
Since 2010, Maryhill Museum’s collection of contemporary Indigenous art has greatly expanded and includes regional artists such as Rick Bartow (Wiyot), Lillian Pitt (Warm Springs-Wasco-Yakama), and Joe Feddersen (Okanagan and Arrow Lakes). Diné (Navajo) artists Shonto Begay, Marwin Begaye, and Will Wilson are also represented in the collection, as are Cara Romero (Chemehuevi) and Merlin Little Thunder (Southern Cheyenne). Northwest/Southwest draws on this work and select loans from public and private collections to present an overview of some of the diverse expressions that have been produced in the Indigenous community during the last four decades.
Ornithology: Avian Imagery from the Permanent Collection
March 15–November 15, 2022

Ornithology is the scientific field dedicated to the study of birds. Birds are also a popular subject for artists—especially printmakers. In 2022, the museum’s Maryhill Favorites Gallery is dedicated to works on paper showcasing avian subjects. Featured artists include Katja Oxman, Betty LaDuke, Arthur Higgins, and Dyann Alkire.
Silver and Turquoise Jewelry
March 15–November 15, 2022 

Turquoise has been known for centuries in Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and throughout the ancient world. In the Western Hemisphere, the Aztecs utilized quantities of it, and, in the American Southwest, Indigenous peoples have worked with turquoise for more than a millennium. During the last quarter of the 19th century, Navajo (Diné) and Pueblo artists began creating jewelry combining turquoise stones with silver settings—work that is now synonymous with Southwestern artistic expression. Maryhill’s 2022 exhibition of silver and turquoise jewelry features late 20th-century examples drawn from private collections in Vancouver, Washington.
Théâtre de la Mode
In 2022, all or part of three different sets will rotate onto view: Louis Touchagues’ “La Rue de la Paix en la Place Vendôme”; Georges Douking’s “L’Île de la Cité”; and a portion of Christian Bérard’s “Le Théâtre.”
Will you consider a year-end gift to Maryhill? While the past 18 months have been extremely challenging, our staff has been resilient and we are optimistic about the future. We have engaging exhibitions and programs planned for 2022, but need your support to make it all happen.
Membership dues and admission revenue, reduced by 30% in 2021 due to lagging tourism, cover only portion of our operating costs.
Can we count on you to make a year-end donation to Maryhill? Your gifts, of any size, are essential to the future of the museum and allow us to bring quality arts programming to the Columbia River Gorge region. 
Thank you for your generosity!
