The World of Peter Fortune - New Exhibition Opening February 21, 2024 at Cascadia Art Museum

Updated: Feb 28

Peter Fortune (1904-1989), Untitled, c. 1960, oil, Estate of Peter Fortune The World of Peter Fortune (1904-1989) Exhibition opens February 21, 2024, at Cascadia Art Museum in Edmonds. A Northwest iconoclast, Peter Fortune created a unique body of work in painting, printmaking and ceramics. This will be the first comprehensive exhibition of his work produced from the 1950s through the 1980s. Of special interest is the large-scale ceramic installation “An Apple Began It,” which features a group of bawdy vignettes based on the Old Testament story of Adam and Eve.

Other works include a series of blockprints depicting an unusual iconography of saints as well as the irreverent “Athlete Series” where major sports figures of the period are transformed by Fortune’s satirical and comical observations. Cascadia Art Museum is open 11am to 5pm Wednesday through Sunday and during Art Walk Edmonds the Third Thursday of each month from 5 to 8pm. Cascadia Art Museum
