“It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

2. Oregon Arts Watch: Maryhill’s Exquisite Gorge Woodcut Print 

On a bright & shining Saturday, it all came together: Maryhill Museum’s audacious, 66-foot long print project went to press via steam roller.

AUGUST 28, 2019 // ARTSWATCH FOCUSCULTUREFEATUREDVISUAL ART // FRIDERIKE HEUER

THE EXQUISITE GORGE PROJECT

“…a collaborative printmaking project featuring 11 artists working with communities along a 220-mile stretch of the Columbia River from the Willamette River confluence to the Snake River confluence to create a massive 66-foot steamrolled print. The unique project takes inspiration from the Surrealist art practice known as exquisite corpse. In the most well-known exquisite corpse drawing game, participants took turns creating sections of a body on a piece of paper folded to hide each successive contribution. When unfolded, the whole body is revealed. In the case of The Exquisite Gorge Project, the Columbia River will become the ‘body’ that unifies the collaboration between artists and communities, revealing a flowing 66-foot work that tells 10 conceptual stories of the Columbia River and its people.”  – Louise Palermo, Curator of Education at Maryhill Museum
