Exhibition: Fate of the Forest



An Open Hanging


Presented at the Whatcom Museum Lightcatcher

June 4 – September 18, 2011

In celebration of our upcoming exhibition, Evergreen Muse: The Art of Elizabeth Colborne (1885-1948), the Whatcom Museum will be hosting FATE OF THE FOREST: AN OPEN HANGING. The reception for both exhibitions will be held on June 17, 2011.

Any artist who is a member of the Whatcom Museum can submit one exhibition-ready work in any media interpreting the Pacific Northwest forest. From alpine meadows and rocky peaks to surf-splashed coastline, the dense forests of the Pacific Northwest offer boundless inspiration for art. The exhibition will stimulate vital dialogue on the future of our forests while strengthening the Museum’s relationship with regional artists.

For the first time, the Whatcom Museum will be introducing a special artist membership rate: $30 for the year. As long as artists – or their representatives – can deliver and pick-up their artworks in person, it does not matter where they reside; participation is open to all members from any geographic area.
