Vintage holiday cards now on display at Cascadia Art Museum

Now through Jan. 26, 2020, Cascadia Art Museum presents its annual holiday exhibition with never-before displayed vintage cards, and for the first time, a catalogue. Just in time for the holidays, the museum is releasing the first catalogue of Vintage Christmas Cards by Northwest Artists

For most of the 20th century, many regional artists created original works of art to send to their fellow artists, friends and families to celebrate the holiday season. The cards were created using relief printmaking such as woodcut and linoleum blocks as well as watercolor, oil, collage and other materials.

While some crowd favorites will return, many new cards will be on display, from such artists as John Matsudaira (1922-2007), Milt Simons (1923-1973), Mac Harshberger (1900-1975), and many more

Cascadia Art. Museum is located at 190 Sunset Ave., #E, Edmonds. You can find hours and admission prices here.



  1. What a spectacular array! Admittedly, I was apprehensive about entering the museum due to concern with the images I imagined being inundated with from “The Lavender Pallette” (based on its subtitle). In the end, I was glad I visited. The primary exhibit is tastefully done and could largely be mistaken for mainstream art; though I did not enter the gallery bearing the sign, “Mature Content.”
