European Vacation, Girls Night Out and The Agony and The Ecstasy of Art

Well, there’s plenty going on around the valley and beyond for artist and art lovers alike.

Here in Town, Russ Helper did a fine job of retooling the show at Two Rivers Gallery which was quite a joy to see this week prior to the First Friday event which I did not attend. I loved the whimsically colorful display in the front room as well as the more down to earth assortment of water colors and oils by Jan Theriault and others in the inside hall and the Tourists in Europe painting by Dan Bosich. And the mixed media piece by Evelin Williams reminds a lot of some photos I took from Alkie Cove last year while on a diving expididion. All in all a good show.

And, of course they were participating in the ‘Girls Night Out’ raffle. I’m still not sure though what the prize actually is for on that one. But, I hope it went well.

Also, here in town, was a first for me anyway, that being to see a full display of the art of Kasey Kosky over at Lemolo’s Café. Very nice and enjoyable. At the other artful café in town, that being Café Mela, there is the Jan Cook Mac and Nic Penny displays. Very nice those. Nic is the up and coming protégé of Jan’s and the two of them show well together.

Down the street at Gallery 4South Charlene is showing the work of Londa Lowry who is showing some truly lovely photos taken in Italy. You can’t help but dream of a European vacation when looking at those. And, she still has a couple of watercolors by Yuri Volkrov on hand as well.

Interestingly, out in Cashmere, Artie Bowman is also showing photography of Europe. There she featuring the work of Jesse Lane. And, they are, of course, showing the work of many local artists from the Cashmere area such as these by Evelin G. Too bad I won’t be in town for Second Saturday there in Cashmere next week as I will be in So. CA. for more family adventures, but that’s another story.

Further out yet in Leavenworth, they are featuring a glass art show called ‘Glass Two Ways’ by local artists Terri and Amber Zimmerman a mother and daughter artist duo. I haven’t been out to see this show yet, but I’m really hoping to get out there before I leave town. And, thinking of Icicle Arts in Leavenworth, it’s time to be planning a piece for this year’s Icicle Prize recycled art show there… hmmm…what to do for that.

Meanwhile back here in town Mr. Terry Johnson that crazy artist over at Terry Signs just keeps making more and more interesting and creative art on/in canvas, glass and clay.

And, lest I forget over at Amanda's Book Store she has a new photo in the front room and and some more art books in the new room in the back.

And, for me it’s the eagle, the eagle the eagle… when will it be done… answer… when it is finished. Or, is it the other way around. I’ll have to go back and take a look at ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’ to get that line right.

Well, enough for now and have a very artful day.
