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 ...

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 ...

Menorahs, Rhunes, Sanshin, World Dancers and More

Well, it’s been a fun filled and entertaining weekend so far for arts in the valley and beyond. Friday night had multiple events going on in town and in the upper valley.

Icicle Prize and First Friday, New Art and Another Bike Mural

Well, I am happy and a little bit proud to say that the recycled art project that Martha and I submitted to this year’s Icicle Prize was accepted and is on display at O’Grady’s Pantry at the Sleeping Lady Resort near Leavenworth. There are a bunch of other great pieces by the other artists there as well. It looks like pretty stiff competition. So, we’ll see how we do.
