Confluence Gallery in Twisp will host four concurrent shows from Aug. 24-Sept. 28, featuring. contemporary artists from Washington state. An opening reception for all four shows will be held on Aug. 24, from 5-7 p.m.

The show will feature print works from Robin Doggett, ceramics from Don Ashford, 2-D and 3-D work from Vern White, as well as colorful botanical works from Tonia Gonzalez-Ortega.
Pacific Northwest artist ML Harris will show her body of work, “The Gift of Water” in the Community Gallery. “Water is the lifeblood of our landscape – the foundation that supports the web of life on which we all depend,” Harris said in the release. “These photographs express my gratitude for the priceless gifts that our watershed bestows.”
“Weatherbound,” a body of work created during Perri Howard’s recent artist residency at Kingsbrae International Residency for the Arts in New Brunswick, Canada, will also open. The exhibit is inspired by the landforms and seascapes of the Bay of Fundy.
The fourth show, “Women in the Workplace,” is a solo presentation by Liberty Bell High School student Cymone Van Marter. Using strong women, Cymone tells their stories through her camera.
