Short Term Art Gallery

The Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum boasts a temporary gallery where it hosts a variety of changing exhibits. Currently the staff is proud to be displaying art from three local artists with three distinct styles, which will be at the museum through July 9, 2012. (Most pieces are for sale.)

Donna Van Tuyl of Goldendale, WA, works “en pleinar” (French for outdoors) and she says she is compelled to paint what she sees and feels. She is passionate about the natural world and being in tune with nature.

Nick Miles of The Dalles, OR, expresses his artistic self through metal wall hangings. His creations range from western cowboys to wildlife. He said he also can create custom pieces, such as entry gates for ranches, store fronts and businesses.

Bonnie White of Hood River, OR, paints mostly in her studio from photographs and memory, occasionally venturing outside for a specific creation. She said sometime in the early ‘70s she took a watercolor class and has been painting ever since.
