 Larson Gallery Executive Director David Lynx has, in the course of his career, studied and taught about Asian art quite a bit. But his interest is not academic; it is passionate. That is to say, he’s not just an Asian art expert but an Asian art fanatic.

So if you attend “The Smile of Buddha,” Lynx’s entry in the Yakima Valley Community College Fall Lecture Series, you will be hearing a man who genuinely loves the subject matter — in this case, the evolution of how Buddha is represented artistically.

The lecture is free. It begins at 7 p.m. in the Parker Room in YVCC’s Deccio Higher Education Center. For information, visit or call 509-574-4809.

 The Larson Gallery’s annual Central Washington Artists’ Exhibition is always a varied, interesting look at the state of visual art in the Yakima Valley and the rest of Central Washington. Every year the show features the work of veteran artists alongside that of up-and-comers, and every year it includes all sorts of different techniques, materials and disciplines.

This year’s show, juried by Michael D’Alessandro of the Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend, will definitely be worth a look. It opens with a reception from 3 to 5 p.m. in the gallery on the Yakima Valley Community College campus and will remain on display through Dec. 6.

YVCC could spend millions on new buildings in Yakima & Toppenish


YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima Valley Community College is making plans to expand. Administrators want to build two new buildings. One for facilities in Yakima. The other for students in Toppenish. KIMA learned the cost would run in the millions.

It's business as usual in YVCC's print shop. Hard to do when the space is unusual.

"Palmer was not designed to house all the new copiers and the new equipment that the print shop uses," said YVCC's Vice President of Administrative Services, Teresa Holland.
