Washougal, Wash. – July 9, 2012
The Port of Camas-Washougal today announced the opening of a new art display in the lobby of the port office, showcasing the photography of Washougal resident Mike Ladage.
His original photography depicts landscape scenes around Clark County, including fall and winter scenes along the Washougal River along with several pictures of popular outdoor recreation spots. The photos also show the unique beauty and color of the local flora and fauna. The port announced the opening of a rotating art display in the lobby of the port office in March 2012.
Artwork is selected from submissions by local artists, including students from kindergarten through college. Original landscape paintings, wildlife photography from the nearby Steigerwald National Wildlife Refuge, northwest fishing and recreational aircraft images are also encouraged. We also welcome local artwork that supports themes that reflect the port’s mission as an economic engine, recreation sponsor and historical and cultural institution. Criteria for artwork submissions and how to apply are found on the port website at http://portcw.com/index.php/about/art_display/.
The exhibits are free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 24 South ‘A’ Street, Washougal, 98671.
