Juried Art Show entries on display at Allied Arts

Last month, the Gallery at the Park in Richland showcased its annual Juried Show, featuring 57 pieces from 43 artists. The show ran throughout the month of July, and it will be on display at the gallery until Aug. 17.

At the reception and awards ceremony on July 6, Paul Lewing, the juror for 2018, presented 10 awards, including one introduced just this year — the Burger award, named for Leland and Eleanor Burger.

The Burgers became Allied Arts Association members soon after moving to the Tri-Cities in the late 1940s, and the couple remained members and patrons for their entire lives.

Yu-Heng Dade became the first-ever recipient of the Burger award for her piece “Show Off.”

The Best of Show award went to “Boardman Tree Farm,” a photograph by Adam Sims, while Susan Steinhaus Kimmel received the gold award for her mixed media collage “Evening Breeze,” and Alex Roeder received the silver award for her beadwork “Blushing Blossoms.”

Children’s work shown

On Aug. 21, the Gallery at the Park will present its Children’s Summer Workshops Show, which features works from children who have taken art classes during the summer.

Two workshops are still open for signups — “Creating Collage” and “Little Picassos (Mommy & Me).” Both classes will be held from Aug. 13 to Aug. 17.

For more information, stop by the Gallery at the Park or visit the website at galleryatthepark.org.

The Children’s Summer Workshops Show will be on display until Aug. 26. The reception will take place on Aug. 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the gallery

Adult workshops

On Aug. 18, from noon to 4 p.m., Sam Collett will be hosting a “Fundamentals of Drawing” class.

Participants will gain basic representational drawing skills, and they will learn how to create recognizable twodimensional images of what they observe.

The fee for this workshop is $60. Register online at galleryatthepark.org or at the gallery, at 89 Lee Boulevard near the entrance to Howard Amon Park in Richland.

The Gallery at the Park is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
