This 45-oil-painting exhibition is Paquette’s re-exploration, after having lived in five places near its shores, of the entire length of the Mississippi River. It started as a project to paint images of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area — honoring the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016 — and ended with an additional 2,200 miles being added to its scope.

NOTE: Shown below is the last of four groups of paintings  showing 1/4 of the works in the exhibition. On the first day of each month starting in August 2018, the gallery below will be changed to feature half of the paintings from the exhibition. Check back again!
