Working with Tradition: Folk Artists of Washington State

This exhibit ran from November 15th, 2011 to February 18th, 2012.

Beginning November 15th, 2011, the Washington State Historical Society‘s traveling exhibit Working with Tradition will be on display in the north-west gallery. This exhibit will explore the “hand-made” traditions carried on by artists in Washington State. Exhibit panels around the gallery will describe fourteen folk artists’ work. Examples of folk art from the museum’s own collection will also be featured.

This exhibit is brought to the Clark County Historical Museum through the generous support of Humanities Washington with media support from the Vancouver Business Journal.
