"The Pacific Northwest has inspired artists since the time of the first explorers and inhabitants in the area. The earliest settlements in the region date back to 2000 BCE, as does the history of artmaking. Some of the Northwest's first formal imagery came from the region's earliest explorers. Captain James Cook published drawings, maps, and charts executed by his draftsman, John Webber, created during Cook's famous 1776 expedition. Lewis and Clark's renowned expedition across the western United States was also a rich source of early imagery of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. Alfred Agate and Joseph Drayton produced many fine-line drawings during Captain Charles Wilkes' 1841 expedition through Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. By the mid-1840s, American pioneers were arriving in the Northwest territories by the thousands. Paul Kane, a Canadian and one of the first serious artists to work in the region, was eminently successful in depicting the daily lives of the native inhabitants, producing over four hundred sketches and numerous canvases. In 1859 he authored the highly successful Wanderings of an Artist Among the Indians of North America, thereby drawing upon what was to become one of the region's most prominent themes." (Promo Copy)
