Northwest Collects

This exhibition consists of a selection of art and decorative objects in various mediums loaned from regional collections. We are focusing on national and international artists and designers that are rarely exhibited in Washington State museums.

Fine art includes European and American paintings and original prints that span several generations from Albert Bierstadt (1830-1932) to German Expressionist Karl Hofer (1878-1955) and examples of American regionalism and Impressionism.

Photographers include Diane Arbus (1923-1971); William Mortensen (1887-1965), George Platt Lynes (1907-1955) and others.
