The Larson Gallery hosts Art Works NW exhibit

This spring the Larson Gallery is excited to host the Art Works NW exhibition. The show is an artists cooperative which features 21 artists selected from a group of 60 artists in the Tri-Cities and surrounding area. Their goal is to promote local artists via exhibits and shows by developing working relationships with local businesses and galleries to exhibit art, mentor emerging artists and educate the public about the arts.

“The exhibition came as a suggestion from Larson Gallery Guild member Patrick Fleming, who, as an artist, has participated in the Central Washington Artists’ Exhibition at Larson Gallery,” shares David Lynx, Larson Gallery director.

“This is a chance for the local community to see what is being created by other regional artists outside of Yakima,” continued Lynx, “most of the names of the artists are new to me.”  Lynx, who also served as curator of this exhibit, chose 45 works to display.

Twenty-four artists with work in this exhibit include Karen Powers, Diana McPherson, Margo Fox, Rosemarie Quirk, Sally Green, Marcia Wyatt, Amber Prejean, Paula Bashforth, Leo Bowman, Yu-Heng Dade, William Hermanns, Stephanie Bucci, Barbara Sutton, Claire Hastings, Shanna MacPherson, Carol Betker, Maja Shaw, Denise Wagner, Marsha Bates, Terri Rice, Pam Sharp, Geneva Carroll, Mary McGuire, and w.e. McMillin.

The show runs March 19 – April 23.
