Paintings from the Palouse: The Art of Andrew L. Hofmeister

Hofmeister was an important artist and instructor at Washington State University from 1947 – 1978. This exhibition features a selection of his paintings spanning five decades—from the 1940s to the 1990s.

While heavily influenced by his Montana roots, Hofmeister worked mostly from memory and imagination, drawing inspiration from a variety of sources including classical music, traveling and the unique landscape of the Palouse where he had his studio for over 50 years.

Quiet Hour: The Photography of Yukio Morinaga

Yukio Morinaga, Quite Hour, circa 1925. Bromide print. Private collection

This is the first solo exhibition of the work of Northwest photographer Yukio Morinaga (1888–1968). As a distinguished member of the Seattle Camera Club, Morinaga produced an important body of work that displays elements of both pictorialism and modernism.


The dates for Coffee with the Curator on our feature exhibitions Paintings From the Palouse: The Art of Andrew L. Hofmeister and Quiet Hour: The Photography of Yukio Morinaga are July 21, August 11, and October 13.
