Well, last night was quite an enjoyable event at the Robert Graves Gallery in Sexton Hall at Wenatchee Valley College. The show featured two artists each with a unique take on the world and their own way of portraying it.

All along the walls of the gallery were the digital photos and montages ‘Tongue Tide ’works by Nance Van Winckle. I really loved how she has taken what were photos of existing walls in a variety of urban and not so urban looking settings and then added her own addition classic posters, ads and murals making them look as though they were one organic or original piece. I had to ask her if she had photographed some of these walls as they were or added her own material and how much of each… the variety of colors, textures and feels that she was able to create goes beyond my ability to describe here. One really must go see the works and appreciate them directly.

In the center of the gallery were the three dimensional pieces ‘Blur_Reclamation_Entropy’ by Bryan Miller created from repurposed material found locally in Wenatchee Valley. His theme here presented the urban rural overlay upon the land. I for one really liked the piece that reminded me of a sailing vessel… I know that’s not what it was. But, as a lover of the sea and of sailing vessels, I naturally thought of this as I looked upon it. Maybe you will too when you see it.

As to the crowed at the opening, it was a real who’s who of the local art scene. There were artists, gallery directors and board members from all the major galleries in the area. And, all were having a grand time enjoying the art, chatting with each other and meeting and talking with the artists and their spouses. Kudos to John Crew for putting on an enjoyable event at the Robert Graves Gallery. Well, enough for now. See you all tonight at the First Friday Opening Reception for Martha Flores at Two Rivers Gallery.
