Join Historic Seattle for a special Members Only presentation and guided walk-through of the Cascadia Art Museum, the first museum dedicated to Northwest art from the late 19th century through the 1960s. With five galleries, a multi-purpose education room, gift shop, and event space, the 11,000 square foot museum is an outstanding adaptive re-use of one of Edmonds’ most iconic, mid-century modern buildings, a former Safeway store and most recently, an antique mall.
Art collector and founder Lindsey Echelbarger will talk about the vision, planning, site development, and design of the building. David Martin, co-founder of Martin-Zambito Fine Arts, who has spearheaded visibility for regional artists through research, exhibitions, catalogs, and lectures, will walk us through the inaugural exhibition he curated, A Fluid Tradition: Northwest Watercolor Society… The First 75 Years.
