About CASCADIA ART MUSEUM

Location:

190 SUNSET AVE STE E, EDMONDS, WA 98020, US

Mission Statement

The Cascadia Art Museum is an educational, nonprofit organization that celebrates the rich tradition of visual arts in the Northwest as shaped by our environment, the Cascade Mountains. The museum provides enriching experiences for community and visitors through temporary exhibitions, public programs, and educational outreach. CAM seeks to illuminate the cultural and social threads that have empowered Northwest art from the time of the first settler communities to the period of the Seattle World's Fair, and the links between this legacy art and that created in our own time.

Description

Cascadia Art Museum premiered in September, 2015 as a result of the growing national and international interest in American regional art.

We feature paintings, prints, photography and sculpture created exclusively by artists active in the Northwest during the mid- 19th through the mid-20th centuries. With few exceptions, this fertile period of our creative history has been largely overlooked and understudied.

The museum employs a series of five galleries; the Gateway Gallery changes yearly and features an overview of artistic activity created within the parameters of our focus. The remaining four galleries are dedicated to changing quarterly exhibitions.

Geographically, it would be difficult to find a more beautiful environment than what our area has to offer. In addition to a reverence for nature, our regional art was informed by a wide variety of cultural influences from the contributions of our substantial indigenous and immigrant population. This has created a unique visual language that is completely distinct from the rest of the country.

Northwest Art is inherently diverse, created by artists with various cultural and social backgrounds. It is our intention to present their works without hierarchy through groundbreaking exhibitions and publications that define and record the contributions to the local, national and international developments within their chosen mediums.
