"Legacy of the Columbia River Fisheries" and "Work is Our Joy" Exhibits now at Redmen Hall!

There is now a cozy little area at the top of the stairs on the second floor at Redmen Hall, complete with seating and a beautiful rug.  Our TV/VCR is set up to show "Work is Our Joy: The Story of the Columbia River Gillnetter".  In addition, we have a new display of smaller versions of the award-winning exhibit "Legacy of the Columbia River Fisheries".  The larger display travels around the country, so now we have a stay-at-home version for Redmen Hall, thanks to memorial donations (in honor of Robert and Eva Keatley and Freddie Koontz) and the generosity of area fishermen.  

These exhibits give visitors to Redmen Hall even more to enjoy when they come to see our ongoing line of exciting exhibits and talented performers!

Carol Peacock Exhibition May 2 - June 21

Local artist Carol Peacock will have an exhibit at Redmen Hall from Saturday, May 2nd through Sunday, June 21st.  Carol speaks about her art:

"With each painting I create, I strive to show the expressions of love, kindness, joy and ecstasy on the faces of spiritual beings.  That is my  message... we are spirits with bodies with all the attributes of the universe available to us eternally.  I encourage everyone to meditate, to ask to be shown ones very own path of creativity that empowers to be the one can be and to share it with all mankind.  In this way we contribute to the process of evolution."

Carol Peacock grew up in a military family and spent her formative years in Europe. The exposure to the culture, ancient architecture, and the museums featuring the works of the old masters set her on the path of becoming an artist. After attending UC Berkeley she traveled extensively then spent many years in San Francisco painting and working with Children with Autism.  A move to an Art colony in Arkansas solidified her career as an artist where she showed at many galleries and had many one woman showings.  Carol has had exhibitions in Kansas City, Chicago, San Francisco, Little Rock, New Orleans, Barrington, IL (where she won best in oil) and Algonquin, IL where two of her paintings were exhibited as public art for a year at the Department of Education, and of course, in Eureka Springs, AR. Carol moved to Cathlamet in 2011 to be near to her sons and grandchildren .  This exhibit represents the paintings she has done since moving to Cathlamet.  Carol's paintings may also be seen at TSUGA Gallery, Scribbles Nail and gift Salon, and Maria's Restaurant all on Main street in down town Cathlamet.
