The Intimate Diebenkorn: Works on Paper, 1949-1992

This exhibition features fifty-two of Richard Diebenkorn’s (1922–1993) drawings and paintings on paper, which reveal the working hand and mind of one of America’s most respected and admired twentieth century artists. Created while living and teaching in different locations—Albuquerque, New Mexico, Sausalito, Berkeley, Ocean Park, and Healdsburg, California—these works represent a painter of profound lyricism and curiosity.

Endangered Species: Artists on the Front Line of Biodiversity

Art Show

Endangered Species highlights 60 artists who celebrate biodiversity's beauty, interpret natural and human-induced extinctions, and focus on endangered species from diverse ecosystems. It includes the work of artists who spotlight the human activities threatening biodiversity alongside art projects that revitalize habitats and reconnect people to the natural world. The exhibition surveys a wide range of approaches and media used by artists spanning the nineteenth through twenty-first centuries. By tracing links between contemporary and earlier artists, it reveals continuity within a rich cultural tradition of engagement with nature conservation. Juxtaposing the history of art and natural science, Endangered Species explores artists’ pivotal role in raising awareness about biodiversity’s importance. Major funding for the exhibition and catalogue has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and The Norcliffe Foundation, with additional support from the City of Bellingham, the Whatcom Museum Foundation, the Museum Advocates, Alexandre Gallery, and Heritage Bank.
