The Art of Elizabeth Colborne
Elizabeth Colborne never saw the Northwest landscape as a postcard portrait. Dividing her time between the Northwest and New York City, she produced a series of color woodblock prints of local landmarks like Mt. Baker and Bellingham Bay that bring a sophisticated cosmopolitan sensibility to the depiction a region still emerging from the surrounding wilderness. Now, Seattle-based curator David Martin and Bellingham’s Whatcom are offering the first retrospective show of Colborne’s work since her death in 1948.
