Washougal teacher has art displayed in museum exhibition


Washougal — Washougal High School art teacher Evan Rumble was picked as a featured artist at the Maryhill Museum of Art’s “Teachers as Artists: Washington Arts Educators” exhibit. His piece, “Shattered Sandstone, Table Rock, ID, 2017” is an acrylic on aluminum composite panel. Rumble is in his second year of teaching at the school, and said in a release from the district that he has struggled to make time for his own art, but he felt responsible to overcome similar creative demands that he puts on his students. “Painting in this manner allows me to break the project down to fit my schedule, a few shapes a day, and still strengthen my own artistic problem solving,” he said in the release. The subject of his painting was pulled from a black and white photograph taken of a large boulder, about 12 feet high, located off a trail on Table Rock in Boise, Idaho.
