Confluence Gallery will launch a new artist networking/education program, “Artist to Artist,” on Saturday (Jan. 9) from 5 – 7 p.m. at Weagant Studios, 62 Old Twisp Highway. Each quarterly gathering will be hosted by a Methow Valley artist in their working studio. Resident artists will share something about themselves and their work at the free events. At the Saturday meeting, artist Rod Weagant will present an intimate look at his work space and his art process. Confluence artist in residence Perri Howard will also provide a short presentation. For more information, call 997‑2787.
Confluence Gallery is coordinating two exhibits opening this month. Works by local artist Mary Powell are on exhibit through March 30 at the Mazama Country Inn. Works by local photographer Donni Reddington will be on display from Jan. 15 – April 15 at the Family Health Centers dental clinic in Twisp.
