SEATTLE — Robert Edward Graves, the former Wenatchee artist and educator for whom Wenatchee Valley College’s art gallery is named, died Saturday. He was 84.

The painter and lecturer earned his master’s in fine art from the University of Washington in 1962, studying with notable Northwest artists including Alden Mason and Mark Tobey. He taught at WVC for the next 32 years before his retirement.
