Meet the Neighbors in Troutdale

"When I first started seriously painting I would drive through Troutdale to get onto the scenic highway. I thought what a great place we have, a treasure … it just felt like home.” Meet our neighbor, Robert MacGinnis, the featured artist at the 2018 Fall Festival of the Arts in Troutdale. 

Known as The Gateway to the Columbia Gorge, Troutdale is home to a thriving arts community, with a charming Main Street decked out in murals that tell the tales of the town, and dotted with bronze scuptures by artist, Rip Caswell. Stroll and explore, shop and dine, and stop in to the Tasting Room at Calcagno Cellars for a sip of the Pacific Northwest’s best.
