Maryhill Museum of Art presents Ancient Greek Ceramics from its permanent collection. In 1926, Queen Marie of Romania’s oldest daughter, Elisabetha, the former Queen Consort of Greece, gave Maryhill Museum of Art a collection of terracotta Tanagra figures and ancient Greek pottery vessels. Tanagras are figurines that were rediscovered near the Beotian town of Tanagra, (central Greece) in the 1870s. They are made of mold-cast terracotta and were produced after the late 4th century A.D. The amphorae and related ceramic vessels are mostly from Cyprus and date from the Iron Age to the Early Roman Period (c. 1050 B.C.E.–50 A.D.). The exhibit continues through November 15 at the Maryhill Museum of Art, Goldendale, Washington. For details see the Maryhill Museum website.
