This Month at Cascadia Art Museum:

Delbert J. McBride (Cowlitz/Quinault 1920-1998)


This month the museum is featuring the art of Delbert J. McBride (Cowlitz/Quinault 1920-1998), Painter, ceramic artist and historian. He is credited as an early proponent of Northwest Native American art and culture. McBride was one of the founders of Klee Wyk Studios known for producing architectural and decorative tile murals as well as utilitarian objects that were among the finest mid-century designs utilizing Northwest Coast Native American motifs.
As a painter, McBride exhibited in local museums and institutions such as the Seattle Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma Art League, and the University of Puget Sound.

His works are displayed in the museum’s Native American Modern exhibition alongside non-native contemporaries Worth D. Griffin (1893-1981), R. Bruce Inverarity (1909–1999) and others who were highly influenced by Northwest indigenous design and culture.

For more than 60 years, Junior League Seattle has brought visual art learning directly to children across King County through traveling art exhibits, training for educators, and PTSA docents. The Northwest Art Collection specializes in original Northwest art, and has toured schools in the greater Seattle area exposing thousands of children to original works by some of the region’s most prominent artists. Select pieces from the collection are currently on display at Cascadia Art Museum. Please join us for a drop-in art event during the Edmonds Art Walk, where you will have the opportunity to create your own drawing inspired by the paintings Channel Meadows by Storm by Guy Anderson and Crystalline World by Kenneth Callahan (the very first piece in the Northwest Art Collection!).

Admission is free from 5:00 – 8:00pm on Thursday evening, September 21st for Art Walk Edmonds. All Museum galleries will be open so you can enjoy our on-going exhibitions: Urban Scenes of Seattle and Mid-Century Figurative Sculpture as well as the new Native American Modern exhibition.
