The "Watching the River Flow" exhibit featuring the work of local artist Carol Peacock has been extended through July 4th. This is a beautiful exhibit. Tranquil, peaceful, moving are just a few words that come to mind. Experiencing this work in the Friends of Skamokawa Redmen Hall makes it even more special so come on by if you've not had a chance to see this exhibit. We are open Thursday through Sunday 12:00-4:00, there is easy access into the main floor from the parking lot and the view of the river is truly spectacular!

We would like to let you all know that we have had to postpone our exhibit on the History of Lower Columbia River Commerce until next year. We want to make sure that this exhibit receives the time, attention and planning that it greatly deserves. We've recently realized that realistically, we need more time to properly plan this wonderful exhibit. Please accept our apologies and thank you for your patience. Our current exhibit featuring the beautiful work of local artist Carol Peacock has been extended through July 4th. Thanks so much and see you soon.
