Seattle-based artist Magda Nica's sculptural artwork is now on display at the Maryhill Museum of Art until August 4, 2022, in the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center.

Her textile piece is part of Exquisite Gorge Project II: Fiber Arts, a collective artwork in collaboration with the local community and a designated community partner, among which ARCS.

Drawing inspiration from the people, the landscape and the river, artists have designed an original fiber-based artwork in collaboration with the local community and a designated community partner.  The different sections, featuring 13 artists, will connect to create a large, 66-foot flowing sculpture with the Columbia River as a central element.  

Developed by Curator of Education at Maryhill Museum of Art, Louise Palermo, The Exquisite Gorge Project II: Fiber Arts features 13 regional fiber artists working with communities along 220 miles of the Columbia River from the Willamette Confluence to the Snake River Confluence. Artistic Director for the project is artist Tammy Jo Wilson.

On Saturday, August 6 all individual projects will be brought together at the Maryhill Museum of Art to reveal the continuous artwork. Save the date and come join us for this incredible event!

ARCS is proud be a partner for this multicultural project that features Magda Nica's work. You can learn more about the project and see a map of installations here.

Make it a day trip and enjoy the beautiful drive along the Columbia River Gorge!
