Allied Arts presents Juried Show, Art in the Park

Allied Arts Association is getting ready to host its annual summer events — the Juried Show and Art in the Park.

The 2018 Juried Show will feature works by artists primarily from the Pacific Northwest. Some of the featured artists will win monetary prizes, with more than $2,500 being awarded in total.

This year’s juror is Paul Lewing, a professional clay artist from Seattle. Lewing is most noted for his expertise in glaze chemistry, and he is the author of the book China Paint and Overglaze, which was published by the American Ceramic Society in 2007. He has also written articles for Ceramics Monthly, Studio Potter, the Crafts Report, Clay Times and Pottery Making Illustrated.

Lewing’s work is included in collections at the Montana Institute of the Arts, Colorado Springs Art Museum, Overlake School and Pacific Northwest Bell.

The Juried Show artwork will be on display at the Gallery at the Park in Richland from July 6 to Aug. 17. The reception and award ceremony will be held on July 6 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Art in the Park

This year marks the Allied Arts Association’s 68th annual Art in the Park celebration. The open-air festival, which is free to attend, invites visitors to browse and purchase works from more than 200 artists, including many who have never before been showcased at Art in the Park. Stop by to see artwork from painters, jewelers, photographers, woodworkers and more.

Along with a wide array of arts and crafts, Art in the Park will also feature activities for children and live performances by local musicians.

Art in the Park is a two-day event that is fun, family-friendly and has something for everyone, regardless of how old they are or where their interests lie. It will take place at Howard Amon Park on Friday, July 27, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, July 28, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Children’s workshops

The Gallery at the Park also provides a variety of children’s workshops throughout the summer.

In the “Cultural Art” class from July 9 to July 13, Felicia Follum will offer projects inspired by prominent cultures in our local communities.

From July 16 to July 20, Cameron Milton will teach “Melting Miltons” that will include a series of colorful, inventive projects.

A watercolor class called “In Flight,” from July 30 to Aug. 3, will be taught by Gail Roadhouse. Kids will learn about birds and paint a different one each day.

These classes will be held from 10 a.m. to noon for ages 7 through 11 and at 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for ages 10 through 15. The fee for each workshop is $60, and class sizes are limited.

Allied Arts presents scholarship show, woodturning

The Gallery at the Park celebrates students this month with a show featuring the recipients of the Allied Arts Association’s student scholarships. As a way of promoting the visual arts in our community, Allied Arts awards annual scholarships to Columbia Basin College students and students working toward a master’s degree in fine arts.

This year, scholarships went to Olivia Wells, a student at CBC, and Caitlyn Wilson, a graduate student attending the University of Washington.

Though Wells has enjoyed working in a variety of media, including photography and traditional animation, she has found her niche in oil and acrylic painting. While growing up in Prosser, she did not have specific artists or teachers guiding or influencing her and was almost completely self-taught — influenced mostly by superhero comic books.

Now, Wells has found a mentor in Tracy Walker, an associate professor at CBC. With Walker’s guidance throughout the past year, Wells has been able to improve her techniques and develop her skills as an amateur artist. She hopes to one day publish original comics or create animation. She is working toward an associate degree with an emphasis in visual arts.

Caitlyn Wilson has followed an unlikely path to where she is today, on her way to her master’s degree. She always considered herself “terrible at drawing” until her friends persuaded her to sign up for an art class during her sophomore year of college. Not long afterwards, she saw a show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles featuring the works of Cy Twombly and Mark Rothko.

The influence of abstract expressionism, as well as support from friends and mentors, eventually convinced Wilson that art could be more than representational drawing, so she switched majors and took every printmaking and drawing class Austin Peay State University offered. At UW, she has been able to try her hand at different media such as acrylic paint, ink, airbrush and three-dimensional materials, and to explore the meaning of being an artist. See more of her work online at caitlynlwilson.com.

The student scholarship show will be on display at the Gallery at the Park from May 1 to May 15. The artist reception will be on May 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the gallery.

Woodturning show

Opening on May 22 at the gallery is an exhibit called “New Horizons.” This show, which features acclaimed woodturning artists from across the United States and Canada, gives successful artists the opportunity to branch out in different directions and explore other artistic styles.

For this exhibit, the woodturners have created new works unlike anything they’ve done in the past. The purpose of “New Horizons” is to encourage innovation and discover the new ideas and concepts that emerge.

“New Horizons” will be on display from May 22 to July 1, and the reception will be on June 3 from 1 to 3 p.m. Several artists will also be doing live demonstrations.

On May 26 at 2 p.m., Pat and Karen Miller will show decoration techniques, and on June 2 at 2 p.m., Jim Christiansen will show the importance of form and detail. Learn more by visiting newhorizonswoodart.org.

Children’s workshops

Registration is now open for the 2018 children’s summer workshops. Class topics include comic-book making, watercolors, cultural art, inventive projects, paper maché, sensory art for infants and toddlers, and collages. Register online at galleryatthepark.org.

The Gallery at the Park is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Visit the gallery at 89 Lee Boulevard near the entrance to Howard Amon Park in Richland.

‘Fusion’ conveyed in paintings, glass at Allied Arts Gallery at the Park

The Gallery at the Park is bringing Women Painters of Washington to Richland for the featured April exhibit. The gallery is showcasing these beautiful paintings alongside glass art by Deborah Barnard.

Women Painters of Washington is an association of professional artists throughout the state. It was founded in 1930 by six female artists who wanted to empower professional women to exhibit and market their artwork, as well as to promote art appreciation in their communities.

Women Painters of Washington has had more than 1,000 members since its origination. Today, it has more than 150 members.

The exhibit at the Gallery at the Park is Women Painters of Washington’s 2018 Spring Juried Show, “Fusion.” Though all the works of art are tied together by the theme of fusion, each artist has interpreted the theme in a unique way. For instance, some have chosen to explore combined media, while others have focused on subject matter or narrative. The result is a wonderful collection of diverse paintings.

Women Painters of Washington maintains a gallery in Seattle’s Columbia Tower building. Every year, the gallery features four non-juried exhibitions, usually with about 20 members showcasing 70 different paintings. Visit the gallery at 701 5th Ave., Suite 310, in Seattle, or visit online at womenpainters.com.

Glass art

The Gallery at the Park is also featuring three-dimensional art in the form of Deborah Barnard’s fused glass. Using heat, molds and various forms of glass, Barnard is able to create spectacular works of art. Her 2018 pieces use soft, warm colors to convey the emerging warmth of springtime.

Ten years ago, Barnard opened db Studio, a small teaching facility and retail shop for glass-fusing supplies. In 2013, the size of db Studio increased sixfold, giving it the capacity for a kiln room, cold shop, sandblaster, printmaking, mold-making, a teaching ‘Fusion’ conveyed in paintings, glass at Allied Arts Gallery at the Park facility and a large retail space. The studio is located at Barnard Griffin Winery in Richland, and the website is dbstudiofusedglass.com.

The “Fusion” and fused glass exhibits will be on display at the Gallery at the Park from April 3 to April 27. The artist reception will be on April 6 from 6 to 8 p.m.

The Gallery at the Park is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Find the gallery at 89 Lee Boulevard near the entrance to Howard Amon Park in Richland. You can also go online to galleryatthepark.org.

Nature’s beauty is expressed in ceramics, photography

The exhibit during March at the Gallery at the Park in Richland features two wonderful artists — Jill Smith and John Clement. Like February’s art installation, this exhibit is a mix of three-dimensional and two-dimensional works, with Jill Smith providing clay works and John Clement showing photography. Stop by the gallery sometime this month to see intricate hand-sculptured totems coupled with beautiful photographs of nature.

Jill Smith has a long history of working with clay. She studied ceramics at the University of Puget Sound and later received a master’s degree in fine arts from Whitworth. In 1972, she established her own professional pottery studio, Clay Fox Pottery. Smith’s current work explores high fire stoneware and raku — two distinct techniques for firing pottery.

For the Gallery at the Park exhibition, Smith displays pieces called “Future Fossils,” which resemble rock walls, and totems. Inspired by the natural world, she uses the fluidity of clay and earth pigments to create lasting works of art. If you’re interested in taking pottery classes from Jill, check out clayfoxclayschool.com.

John Clement has been in the photography business for about 40 years, and during that time his work has received more than 60 regional, national and international awards and been accepted into numerous galleries and art shows, including the Washington State University Museum of Art. Clement also has 17 murals on display in CenturyLink Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks and Sounders.

Clement’s photography and Smith’s clay works complement each other because both bodies of work are based around nature. For Clement, photography is a way of sharing God’s creation with others. Using proceeds from his work, he supports a number of Eastern Washington-based nonprofit organizations such as Young Life Ministries, Boys and Girls Clubs, the Walla Walla Hospital Foundation and many others. Visit his website, johnclementgallery.com.

The exhibit will be in the Gallery at the Park from March 6 to March 30. The artist reception will be held on March 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Workshops

Lisa Day will hold a two-day mosaic design class on March 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and March 18 from 9 to 11 a.m. The fee is $80 for members and $90 for nonmembers. Day will provide most of the necessary supplies. To see some of Day’s work, check out the mosaic wall and paint pot in front of the Gallery at the Park.

On May 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Barbara DePirro will lead a class on collage and mixed media. You will discover how to create works of art using various techniques and products. By the end of the day, you will have a reference guide to assist you with future projects. Most supplies will be provided. The cost of the workshop is $115 for Allied Arts members and $125 for nonmembers.

The Gallery at the Park is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays at 89 Lee Blvd., near the entrance to Howard Amon Park in Richland. Visit online at galleryatthepark.org.

‘Precision and Symmetry’ features art by scientists

Stop by the Allied Arts Gallery at the Park in Richland during February to see Tracy Horner’s and Jane Holly Estrada’s beautiful exhibition exploring themes of precision and symmetry. Horner has provided the two-dimensional images, while the three-dimensional art was supplied by Estrada.

Tracy Horner has been creating her own designs and patterns since she was young, and her company, Ink Circles, has been providing crossstitchers with unique embroidery patterns for 12 years. The inspiration for her artwork comes from the details and patterns that emerge when a shape is rotated or mirrored.

Horner even appreciates the slight wobbles and imperfections inevitable with freehand drawing, as they are a direct contrast to the automated drafting products she handles as an electrical engineer. These little imperfections keep the works comfortably human and give them a look of spontaneity. Horner’s featured wall art comprises intricate mandalas and Celtic knots. For more information, visit TracyHorner.com.

Jane Holly Estrada’s artwork includes beautiful handmade porcelain and gemstone jewelry and housewares. Like Horner, Estrada works in the sciences (as a radiochemist) and has an eye for detail. She is influenced by the ephemeral and temporal. Her process involves capturing a fleeting moment of time and using art to transform it into a state of permanence.

Estrada’s unique approach is evident in her work: her pieces take inspiration from the leaves of trees, particularly in autumn after they have fallen. She also uses colors found in nature, such as green from the forest and blue from the river, to create an impression of the natural world. Check out her ceramic jewelry business at Etsy.com/shop/JaneHollyDesigns.

Tracy Horner and Jane Holly Estrada’s exhibit will be on display at the Gallery at the Park from Jan. 30 to Feb. 23. The reception will be held on Feb. 4 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Adult workshops

On Feb. 17 from noon to 3 p.m., Carol Betker will hold a workshop on oil and acrylic painting. Participants will learn an easy approach to a loose style of painting with pure color. The fee for the class is $50 for Allied Arts members and $55 for nonmembers. Stop by the gallery for a supply list.

Lisa Day will hold a two-day mosaic design class on March 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and March 18 from 9 to 11 a.m. The fee is $80 for members and $85 for nonmembers, plus $5 extra for a bowling ball. Day will provide most of the necessary supplies, so the supply list is short.

The Gallery at the Park is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays at 89 Lee Boulevard near the entrance to Howard Amon Park in Richland. Visit online at galleryatthepark.org.

Quilters’ Guild presents ‘Persistence of Pattern’

This month, visit the Gallery at the Park in Richland to view featured quilts and three-dimensional fiber arts brought to us by the Tri-City Quilters’ Guild. For the last 30 years, the Quilters’ Guild has presented an annual quilt show, and the show for 2018 is called “Persistence of Pattern.”

The featured quilts include bed quilts, artistic wall hangings and miniature quilts. They range from the simple — traditional quilts you’ll want for your bed or sofa — to the intricate, including wall hangings with beautiful beading and painting.

Ever since its origination in 1982, the Tri-City Quilters’ Guild has been dedicated to promoting the art of quilting through education and fellowship. Guild members participate in monthly meetings, friendship groups, community service sewing days and many other activities. Learn more about the guild by visiting their website at tcquilters.org.

The gallery exhibition also includes the Quilters’ Guild’s 2018 raffle quilt. Every year, the Guild raffles a quilt made by local members, and the proceeds from raffle ticket sales go toward fabric and other materials used to make community service quilts for local service agencies.

This year’s raffle quilt, “Falling into Place,” is a beautiful and unusual quilt that features five cascading Bali Wedding Star blocks. “Falling into Place” was pieced together a few years ago by Aicha Bourouh, Carol Capelle, Jane Frank, Jerrine Kirsch, Andrea Melius, Patty Morehouse and Darlene Smith. Though its original purpose was to be the back of a different quilt, the two pieces did not work together.

Ginny Hildreth took the opportunity to long-arm the orphaned back as its own quilt. She won several awards for her machine quilting, including third place for bed quilts at the 2015 Home Machine Quilting Show.

“Falling into Place” was quilted with wool batting, and it measures 105 inches by 91 inches. Visitors of the Gallery at the Park may purchase raffle tickets for $1 throughout the duration of the quilt show. The drawing will be held on March 24 at the Tri-City Quilters’ Guild’s show at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick.

The quilt show will be on display at the Gallery at the Park from Jan. 2 to Jan. 26, and the artist reception will be held on Jan. 7 at 1 p.m. at the gallery.

Upcoming workshops

On Feb. 17 from noon to 3 p.m., Carol Betker will hold a workshop on oil and acrylic painting. Participants will learn an easy approach to a loose style of painting with pure color. The fee for the class is $50 for Allied Arts members and $55 for nonmembers. Stop by the gallery for a supply list.

Lisa Day will hold a two-day mosaic design class on March 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and March 18 from 9 to 11 a.m. The fee is $80 for members and $85 for nonmembers, plus $5 extra for a bowling ball. Day will provide most of the necessary supplies, so the supply list is short.

Allied Arts hosts annual Gallery Aglow fundraiser

This November, get all your holiday shopping done early at the Gallery at the Park in Richland. From Nov. 8 through the end of December, the gallery will be host to the Allied Arts Association’s Gallery Aglow event.

Gallery Aglow has been an annual tradition for a little over 30 years, and each November, local and regional artists submit hundreds of works to the show. Stop by the Gallery at the Park to see beautiful decorations and to purchase unique, handmade gifts such as ceramics, glassware, jewelry, fiber art and metal work.

During this event, you can also buy wreaths, trees and other holiday décor. These items were all made by Allied Arts volunteers, and the proceeds go toward funding the Allied Arts Association, which in turn gives back to the community.

Fundraisers such as this allow the Allied Arts Association to continue providing scholarships and expanding programs like Beads Behind Bars and Art Connection. These programs play an important role in the community by making art education more accessible and allowing participants to explore their creativity and gain a greater sense of their own value.

Holiday Watercolor Cards

On Nov. 18 from 1 to 4 p.m., Gail Roadhouse will be leading a class in watercolors. She will teach students the watercolor skills necessary to create two beautiful watercolor holiday cards. This holiday season, if you’d like to have unique cards with a personal touch, register online at galleryatthepark.org. The deadline to register is Nov. 10.

‘Four Northwest Artists’ exhibit opens at Allied Arts

This month, the Gallery at the Park in Richland presents “Four Northwest Artists,” an exhibit featuring the works of Pamela Claflin, Laura Gable, Deanne Lemley and Melanie Thompson. Though the four artists have a shared interest in beautiful landscape paintings, each brings a unique style and perspective to the collection.

Pamela Claflin’s inspiration arises from a deep love of nature. She often works outdoors, allowing her experiences in nature to influence her paintings, and she uses road trips as a way to generate ideas and collect painting materials. For more information on Claflin, visit ClaflinArt.com.

Meanwhile, Laura Gable’s devotion to landscapes began when she was young, originating from family vacations to national parks and hours spent playing outside in the rural Midwestern sunshine. She is influenced by both nature’s vast spaces and the tiny details that emerge in light and shadow.

Gable portrays the essence of nature in her paintings, using “lyrical trees, rugged basalt cliffs, the soft addition of chamisa and sagebrush, and water’s quiet, meandering fluidity” as inspiration. You can learn more about her at LauraGable.com.

For Deane Lemley, art is a “celebration of life itself.” She aims to go beyond simply identifying and illustrating an object. Her goal is to transfer everything she sees, thinks and feels to her paintings. Lemley says she often finds it challenging to capture the beauty of a landscape in the medium of a painting, though she enjoys being able to relate nature’s beauty to viewers. Visit Lemley’s website at DeanneLemley.com.

Finally, Melanie Thompson’s interest in landscape painting stems from her background as a wildland firefighter. She spent time hiking, monitoring fire behavior and sleeping under the stars, which gave her the opportunity to appreciate beautiful landscapes and the “fierce beauty of nature.” Trained in design, she uses her skills to create simple yet powerful images.

Her goal is to reflect the pure wonder of the outdoors and allow viewers to lose themselves in her paintings. She says, “I’d like them to taste the desert air, feel the sun on their skin, and see the splendor of the wild places around all of us.” Thompson’s website can be found at MelanieThompsonArt.com.

These artists have an impressive body of experience, with all four being featured in various shows and galleries in Washington, Oregon and across the United States.

The Four Northwest Artists exhibit will be on display at the Gallery at the Park from Oct. 3 to Oct. 27. The reception will be held on Oct. 6 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Adult workshop

On Nov. 18, from 1 to 4 p.m., Gail Roadhouse will hold a workshop on watercolor holiday cards. The fee for the class is $30, and the deadline to register is Nov. 10. If you sign up for this workshop, please contact the Gallery at the Park in advance to receive all the necessary information.

The Gallery at the Park is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Visit the Gallery at 89 Lee Boulevard near the entrance to Howard Amon Park in Richland, or visit online at galleryatthepark.org.

Allied Arts will feature the fiber art of Barbara Sherrill

As summer comes to an end, the Allied Arts Gallery at the Park in Richland wraps up its annual Juried Art Show. The next featured exhibit, and the first one of the fall season, is Barbara Sherrill’s fiber art show.

Sherrill spent 25 years practicing and developing a variety of surface design techniques — painting, fusing, heating, dyeing, stenciling, beading, stitching and other mark-making — and now she incorporates these techniques into her work to draw out unique colors and textures. Sherrill utilizes elements such as color, shape and visual texture to create beautiful works of fiber art.

Other incredible and unique components featured in Sherrill’s wall art are the multiple layers and three-dimensional embellishments she adds. Much of her work is textured abstract art, though she has also done realistic landscapes, three-dimensional thread vases, beaded and framed pictures, beaded jewelry and boxes.

Many of Sherrill’s recent pieces are connected by themes of aging, faith, life choices and the passage of time. With such an eclectic body of work, Sherrill is able to express these themes in multiple ways, with works of art that viewers will find poignant, thought-provoking and interesting.

Her art demonstrates the uniqueness of the human experience and captures the essence of the world’s natural beauty. With an eye for design, a penchant for experimentation and a passion for all things fiber, she creates the beautiful art that you can find at the gallery.

This exhibit will be on display at the Gallery at the Park from Aug. 29 to Sept. 29. The reception will be held on Sept. 8 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Workshop scheduled

On Sept. 16, the Gallery at the Park will host a lecture on Golden Acrylics, sponsored by Golden Artist Colors, Inc. This presentation is available to artists of all levels and backgrounds, and it will cover a wide range of techniques for various media, including watercolors, paint markers and pastels. If you attend, you will also receive information packets and free samples.

The presentation will be led by Barbara De Pirro, a painter and sculptor whose artwork is exhibited in museums, galleries, sculpture parks, art centers and public spaces.

This workshop will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sept. 16. It is free to attend, but space is limited, so call the Gallery at the Park at (509) 943-9815 to reserve your spot.

The Gallery at the Park is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Visit the Gallery at 89 Lee Boulevard near the entrance to Howard Amon Park in Richland, or visit the website at galleryatthepark.org.

Allied Arts presents Juried Show, Art in the Park

Along with the many things to do in the summer in downtown Richland, make sure you take some time to see the entries in the annual Juried Show beginning July 1 at the Allied Arts Association’s Gallery at the Park.

This year, the show features 47 works from 36 different artists, chosen from 194 submitted pieces from 66 artists. Some of the featured artists will win monetary prizes, with more than $2,000 being awarded altogether. The majority of the artwork comes from around the Tri-Cities, but there also many pieces from Walla Walla and a few from Spokane and Seattle.

The juror for the 2017 show is Sarah Haven, an artist who has run the ceramics program at Central Washington University for several years. Haven was also a member of Seattle’s Punch Gallery for two years and of the Culture Lab artist collective, an organization whose members have worked together for eight years, creating art and participating in group shows.

Haven travels around the Northwest, attending craft shows and searching for new artists to represent at Gallery One in Ellensburg. She frequently participates in the craft shows as well, and she has won many awards in juried shows across the country.

This exhibit will be on display at the Gallery at the Park from July 1 to Aug. 18. The reception and award ceremony will be held on July 7 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Art in the Park

The 67th annual Art in the Park will be held July 28 and 29 in Richland’s Howard Amon Park. You can browse among the works of more than 200 artists, primarily from around the Pacific Northwest. You can visit the artists’ booths, meet and talk with the artists themselves, and find beautiful, completely unique creations.

Art in the Park always features a variety of products from handmade clothes and jewelry to woodworkers’ creations and home décor. No matter where your interests lie, Art in the Park will have a booth for you.

This year, Art in the Park has widened its scope to include an increased focus on families and children. Kids will be able to visit a booth where they can make art of their very own.

“A lot of times when you walk through, you hear, ‘Don’t touch, don’t touch’,” explained director Bethany Beard. “We really want to make it where kids can interact with the art and feel like art is a part of themselves.”

In addition to arts and crafts and children’s activities, Art in the Park include food booths and entertainment by various performers scheduled throughout the two days.

Children’s workshops

During the summer, the Gallery at the Park offers week-long classes for children ages 7 to 15. Classes in July are “Paint the Town: Watercolor,” from July 10 to 14; “Pixelated,” from July 17 to 21; and “Printmaking,” from July 31 to Aug. 4.
