As it was for numerous mid twentieth-century Oregon artists, the coast was a constant inspiration for Carl Hall, and many of his paintings and drawings depict the natural and man-made formations of the state's ocean beaches. "Wailing Wall", exhibited in "Artists of Oregon 1954" at the Portland Art Museum, was inspired by the beach and seawall where the D River joins the Pacific in what is now Lincoln City. It meets Hall's criteria that the "Northwest artist [be] concerned with the physical aspects of his environment," transforming these "into works of art." The book "Eden Again: The Art of Carl Hall" published by the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, is available at the sales counter in the lobby.
