The Haiti Connection - Daily Video Diaries - Episodes I & II

A two-man film crew from North 40 Productions has joined a group of humanitarians from Wenatchee that have traveled to Milot, Haiti for the last 20 years to deliver aid. Our goal is to document the efforts of a local group comprised of medical personnel, Rotary members and other volunteers who are delivering much-needed aid to a small town about 100 miles north of Port au Prince, the capitol city of Haiti.

Two First Fridays From the Trippy to the Traditional

Well, I’m back from California… the OC to be exact. And, so Knowing I would miss the third year anniversary of Two Rivers Gallery’s First Friday and ‘Celebration of the Membership’ at the co-op gallery, I made sure to get in there and get some pics prior to First Friday while the show was being set-up. I wasn’t disappointed.

Giant Mammoth, African Art and Harvest Pide on a Pedestal

Well, there was art stuff happening in the Valley and Beyond yesterday. First thing in the Morning it was time to help change out the Martha Flores ‘Inflorescence’ art at the Icicle Arts Gallery in Leavenworth to make room for the incoming photo exhibit by local Photographer Reed Carlson. That should be a great show, and I am definitely interested to see it.

Serenity, Symbolism, Surrealism and Passionate Poetry

Well, last night was First Friday in Wenatchee and what a great experience it was to get out and see the art around town. Before the festivities could begin I helped deliver and install some more sculptures at Two Rivers Gallery and while I was there took a few pics of the show before all the art walkers would be there. Then as the evening approached I was off to town eager to see what awaited my eye. And, I was not disappointed.

First Friday January 2012... Perfect!

What a delight to the eyes was the first First Friday of 2012. I began my art journey with a visit to the new still in development gallery of Lila Putnum. For years she was displaying her art at the solon just outside her new digs. While I was there she and her daughter were busily putting up the show for the throngs of First Friday visitors that hopefully found her place on Columbia Street just across from both the train station and bus depot. I really felt remiss in ...

Warm Colors, Intense Emotion, Raku Boxes and Bronze Sculptures

Well, the year ended much as it began and as it was lived for art and artists in the valley and beyond.Image Much of the last two days of the year were spent for many local artists in the process of changing out art and preparing for the January shows and First Friday events at local galleries.

Senior singers, Library Art, Old Fashioned Carols and More

Well, it’s been another full and exciting week for art in the Valley and Beyond. Saturday was the Second Saturday Opening and Reception at the Cashmere Arts and Activities Center which had a whole slew of lovely art creations for under a hundred dollars apiece in the main gallery for the Christmas show. The highlight of the night though was the live performance by the fourteen member Wenatchee Senior Center Singers. They sang so many of the Christmas Carols we all love to hear at this time of year especially ...

Dulcimers, Luthiers, Heidi's Good Road and All Things Musical

Well, today I’m feeling rather musical, or at least musically inspired. I am thinking not only of the art of making music, but the art of making musical instruments. I began thinking about instruments and inspired to write of them when I heard of the upcoming presentation of Heidi Muller and Bob Webb by Icicle Arts coming up on December 9th. Muller and Webb will be performing at the Leavenworth Community Coffeehouse playing holiday and winter solstice songs from their new holiday/solstice album,’ Light the Winter’s Dark’, in addition to ...

First Friday, Stepping Up, Stepping Out and a Fine Tme Out On The Town

Well, another First Friday has come and gone, and what an enjoyable evening it was. For Martha Flores and I the evening really underscored some of the best qualities and benefits of living in this wonderful valley. The convenience of being able to shop for hors d’ oeuvres for our Home Art Sale this weekend before heading to an office party at the 434 Orondo Counseling Center… meeting there with not only our close friends and co-workers but to met an artist new to us by the name of Cameron ...

Dancing and Having Fun on Black Friday Preparing for Tomorow

Well, today we braved the crowds and found parking at Office Depot and the Wenatchee Mall in order to get dadadada!!! 24”x36” foam core board to take to the NUART Gallery so Gary Doane could mount some posters showing the history and articles about Martha Flores past and present. This is to be displayed at the gallery tomorrow while Martha Dances and Paints live in front of the gallery from 11am till 3pm.
