There is a lot of activity in the art community going on. Thursday night Bill Rietvelt at the Wenatchee Museum and Cultural Center and a group of volunteers worked on the Giant Puppet project for the Apple Blossom Parade. Don Collins and a bunch of High School kids were there as were others including Martha Flores and myself. This was the first night that clay was put on any of the heads and hands. The kids and adults did a great job, even though all were unclear of how to proceed at the beginning and more clay was needed. Friday new art was delivered for the upcoming show at the Cashmere Arts and Activities Center, and ,art from the previous show was picked up. Gallery director Artie Bowman indicated that new art will be coming in all weekend as the old art continues to be moved out. She was very pleased with January February show and is really excited about the upcoming March and April show. She added that all shows run for two months. Saturday marked the beginning of the transition from the January February show at Two Rivers Gallery as well. Old art will be picked up and new art checked in through Monday. The upcoming show is to feature the art of Walter Graham or at least some of his work as no single gallery could possibly do justice to the volume of work created by Mr. Graham. It is expected that a number of the Graham works to be displayed have never been exhibited before…now that is exciting. I Can’t wait to see the exhibit. There will be a raffle of a Walter Graham painting and the tickets are only $5.00… what a steal. I’ll be buying several tickets…maybe I’ll get lucky.
