Cascadia explores the current artistic climate of the pacific northwest regions of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Once a geographic area proposing to become its own independent nation, this North American stretch stands unique against its adjacent states and provinces. With a distinctive coastal landscape containing natural wonders such as sea stacks, volcanoes and rain forests, it’s not hard to see how folkloric creatures such as vampires dwell in its territories. Cultural idiosyncrasies of this region also make the northwest alluring, having given birth to popular movements from grunge to gourmet food foraging. Making connections between dramatic landforms and individual and cultural nuances, the artists in Cascadia address themes involving living in the Pacific Northwest — and participate in exploring the creation of a wormhole from the northwest to the northeast.
