For Immediate Release
Tacoma Art Museum Examines Regional Art History and Trends
with A Concise History of Northwest Art
The history of Northwest art is both rich and complex, starting with the native peoples of the region and greatly expanding with the arrival of Anglo-American artists in the mid- and late nineteenth century. Local artists gradually formed a dedicated community in the early twentieth century, and that community changed and adapted over the course of the century. Northwest artists have captured the ambitions and visions of many generations and defined how residents of the region saw themselves in relationship to the world. A Concise History of Northwest Art offers a look at the art history of Washington, Oregon, western Montana, and British Columbia, exploring how national and international trends and the unique characteristics of this region shaped the art and art history of the Pacific Northwest.
"How these artists found particular stylistic voices from their work here in the Pacific Northwest will be a key point of the exhibition," said
A Concise History of Northwest Art will include opportunities for visitors to share their thoughts and opinions on the selection of works and the definition of Northwest art as presented by the curators. Video interviews with prominent members of the arts community and online discussions will also play a role in the structure of the exhibition.
