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.

Empty Bowles to Full Palettes

Well, there’s lots going on for art in the valley and beyond. Saturday was the third annual general meeting and social for the Two Rivers Gallery which was well attended and a good deal of fun as well. This year meeting of the membership was held right in the gallery itself. Many new and old members were present and much to the appreciation of all was the presence of the galleries prime benefactor Frederick Johnson. At the meeting it was announced that the gallery will share a booth with the ...

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.

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 ...

The Beat Goes On With Yuri Konyshev, Fantastic Artist and Musician Too

Well, last night’s Second Saturday opening and reception for Yuri Konyshev was a resounding success. Some folks came, left for dinner and came back for more art and socializing. Others came and stayed all the way through till the doors were closed. Some art was purchased even before the installation was complete… so I’m sure this will be a very successful show over the next two months.

Art From Nature, Getty Images, Video at the Museum and Making the Rounds on First Friday

Well, yesterday was quite the busy day for art in the valley. Here at home for me the day started with putting together a little movie of the 5th! grade kids at the park making art from natural found objects at the river followed by a very special experience for them... that, being tutored in the bronze sculpture making process by none other than the phenomenal sculptor Kevin Patel. What a treat that was for the kids and for me to get to video. The video shot was for in ...
