Portland Art Museum Exhibits
On the fourth Friday of every month the Portland Art Museum has a free admission night. A few months ago I happened to be in town, and decided to go to further indulge my new found interest in art.
While not a world class art museum like some, by my un-expert opinion, some of the pieces are quite nice. At least I believe so.
This is a portion of a painting titled “Mt. Hood” by Albert Bierstadt. While this is the East side of Mt. Hood, he added a lot of fanciful features. Extra glaciers, an extra mountain, waterfalls where none exist. None the less it’s still a gorgeous painting and recognizable as Mt. Hood.
Among some of the French painting in the gallery is one titled “A Shipwreck” by artist Charles Francois Lacroix de Marseille
This is an extremely small portion of the museum, and one could easily spend a full day looking around.
