On Now: The Photography of Nick Deal

Nick Deal- who has won many awards in photography at the Washington State Fair and other county fairs in Washington and Oregon, is now exhibiting in Redmen Hall.

He has exhibited at many locations in Washington and Oregon including Redmen Hall last year, and was so popular we have asked him back for a one man exhibit. He is a young man who has a unique view of the environment, concentrating on the architecture of negative and positive space giving us all a different way of seeing our world. 

The exhibit titled "As I See It", will run through the weekend of November 17th and 18th and will be followed the next weekend by our annual Holiday Open House. Redmen Hall is at 1394 SR-4 in Skamokawa, Washington, and is open Thursday through Sunday from 12 noon to 4 p.m.

New Exhibit opens Saturday, April 14th

The Friends of Skamokawa will open its new exhibit, Legacy of the Columbia River Fishery, Saturday April 14 at 1 p.m. at the River Life Interpretive Center, Redmen Hall, 1394 State Route 4, Skamokawa, WA. 98647. Funded by the Wahkiakum Marine Resources Committee, the exhibit examines the traditions of the Columbia River commercial fishery and Native American fisheries through photographs, salmon labels and text. Boatbuilding, traditional tools, fish processing, and ethnic traditions are all featured on colorful panels containing original art by Keith Hoofnagle and text by author Irene Martin.

“This exhibit was such a pleasure to work on,” stated Martin. “The vast archives of illustrative material contained in private collections and in museums such as the Columbia River Maritime Museum provided an incredible resource. We are also very grateful for the photographs of upriver treaty tribal fisheries that expanded the scope of the exhibit and demonstrated the rich cultural heritage of the fishing peoples of the Columbia River .”

"Since I only recently moved to Skamokawa," Keith Hoofnagle said, "working on this exhibit has been a superb introduction to the story of the vast fishery that has been central to the human history of the area. The vintage photos and other graphics that Irene Martin has assembled, many never published before, are gems that augment the text, and make this a dream project for any exhibit-designer." Hoofnagle worked on numerous exhibits during his career with the National Park Service. He is a well-known cartoonist and artist.

The exhibit will run through May 6 at Redmen Hall and will then travel to various other venues.
