Cascadia Art Museum presents a lecture on its featured exhibition, “Painters of the Northwest: Impressionism to Modernism, 1900-1940,” 10 a.m. Saturday, March 2.
John Impert, author of the exhibit’s accompanying book, will speak on the exhibit, surrounded by the work he’ll be discussing.
“Painters of the Northwest” is the first book written on Washington and Oregon artists active in the first third of the 20th century.
Published by the University of Oklahoma Press as the 32nd book in its series on the art and photography of the West, it combines an in-depth investigation of early Northwest art and culture with 53 full-page color illustrations.
Most of the paintings featured in the book are included in the Cascadia show. On opening night, Jan.16, nearly 400 museum members were in attendance, setting a record for Cascadia.
Impert is an art historian with a doctorate in art history from the University of Washington. A Yale College and Harvard Law School graduate, he worked at Boeing as an international lawyer and government affairs representative in Europe before seeking his master’s and doctorate in art history.
Impert is a founding board member and is vice president of the Cascadia Art Museum.
Tickets are $10 for museum members and $15 for non-members (includes ticket to the exhibition). Buy online at www.CascadiaArtMuseum.org or at the museum ticket counter.
