An Art Day in The Life at Bird Fest 2012

Well, Friday was a great day for art, birds and bird art in Leavenworth. From Noon till 5pm Martha Flores was scheduled to volunteer at the Bird Fest Art Show at the studio of Reed Carlson in Leavenworth, so I planned to get a bike ride in while she did the gallery sitting and then we would attend the opening reception for the High School and Middle School kids Recycled Art Show at the Icicle Arts Gallery from 5-7pm.

Out Door Painting In and Out of Town

Well, yesterday was another fine day for art in the valley and beyond. The big story of the day was the Wenatchee River Conservatory of Music fundraiser at Beecher Mansion near the old Blewett Hwy. The event featured a whole slew of artist from Two Rivers Gallery painting live on site, while a variety of musical groups performed around the grounds. It was nice to see good friend Tanya Lawson there with one of the musical groups. And, we shared a good laugh together over a funny encounter just last ...

Dancing Zebra at the NuArt, Plein-Air at Beecher Hill and a Classy Chassis Clay Art Class

Well, great things continue to take place in the arts community around town. Serendipity was the word for the day yesterday for Artist Martha Flores who was happy to find amongst the old photos she brought back with her from a recent trip to visit aging parents in El Salvador, a clipping of her and Robert ‘Bob’ Graves from a Wenatchee World article from the early ‘90s that she had long since given up hope of ever finding. In that article she the first local Ethnic Heritage Award and Robert ...

Pybus, Putnam, Glass Balloons and Art at the Cashmere Mission District

Well, it’s been a busy last few days for me since returning from CA where I videoed the rehearsal for my granddaughters at their hip hop dance school and the trampoline birthday party at a place called Sky High Sports near the Orange county Airport from which I posted two video on Youtube.

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.
