July 30 - September 3, 2020

Photograph of a sandy beach along the Columbia River under clear blue skies. Looking toward the shore, there is an installation of artworks clustered in a circle by the waters edge, revealing the backside of three paintings, which are hanging from wooden stakes pounded into the beach sand. There is a 5 gallon hardware store bucket on the right hand side, which holds one of the wooden stakes. We can make out the face of one abstract painting, which is traversed by a diagonal line of blacks and brown from top right to bottom left. Above the dark diagonal are shades of blue and green. The paintings are far from the lens of the camera, and it's difficult to discern more details of the paintings.

Featuring Endale Abraham, David Lechner, and Elmeater Morton.
