Paintings from the Palouse: The Art of Andrew L. Hofmeister (1913-2007)

Hofmeister was a distinguished artist and instructor at Washington State University from 1947 – 1978. Cascadia Art Museum presents an overview of his paintings that span 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 (1888–1968)

This is the first solo exhibition of works by Seattle photographer Yukio Morinaga, an important member of the Seattle Camera Club and one of the country’s leading pictorialists of the 1920s.

All of the works in this exhibition are vintage bromide photographs, printed by the artist. They were accepted in numerous international salons during Morinaga’s heyday and now assembled for this rare opportunity to view what the world’s experts once praised.Cascadia Art Museum will also be presenting a few artifacts that include two walking sticks that Morinaga hand-carved while interned at the Minidoka Relocation Center during WWII.

Cascadia Art Museum is located at 190 Sunset Ave. S., Edmonds. Hours are Wednesday – Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Admission is free during Art Walk Edmonds on Third Thursdays, 5-8 p.m.  Learn more at the museum website.
