Las Brisas, Peggy Lewis and Icicle Arts: Great Shows Great Art

Well, the week past was, and, the week ahead promises to be, quite the art filled week for us in the valley and beyond. Last week was the intake of artwork for the juried art show out at Peggy Lewis Gallery in Yakima. For that event I accompanied Martha Flores out to Yakima and was pleasantly surprised to meet other members of the Two Rivers Gallery there bringing their artwork as well.

Minds Eye, Pybus and Gateway VIP Lounge Art Photos and Remembering on Memorial Day

Well, Thursday last offered an opportune bit of rest and relaxation away from a busy schedule of clients and home projects. For a few hours in the middle of the day I did my volunteer stint as a docent at the Two Rivers Gallery where I enjoyed yet another chance to meander about the art and of course take a few pictures.

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.

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.
