String Theory and Questions of Art

Well, along with everyone else on the Icicle Arts Gallery mailing list, I received my invitation to the opening reception for Wenatchee artist Jim Huber’s String Theory: A New Lyrical Vision on display through August 19. The reception will be at the gallery (347 Division St., Leavenworth) on Friday July 27, from 5-7PM. All ages are invited and light refreshments will be served. In reading the invitation I was struck not only by the title of the show (more on that in a bit) but by Jim’s thoughts on his ...

Pybus Demo, Bike Surfing the Columbia Swamp Trail and More

Well, it’s been a full week for art in the Valley. Friday last was of course was First Friday and having only time to get to one venue due to other commitments, I stopped in at Two Rivers Gallery where I had the pleasure of meeting friends and enjoying the art of Dean Rainey and the other artist showing there this month. It was well attended and our out of town guest a artist from Yakima loved the venue and art therein.

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.

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.
