Confluence Gallery’s next exhibit, “Legacies,” opens with a reception from 5-7 p.m. on Feb. 29 and continues through April 12.
According to curator Joanne Marracci, the show will feature long-time Methow artists “to honor the artistic legacies they have created.”
“The Methow Valley is and has been home to several artists that have, over the years, shaped what we know of today as our thriving art community,” Marracci said in a press release. “While the valley began humbly enough as small rural towns based on mining, logging, agriculture and ranching, a small enclave of talented dedicated forward thinking artists had the insight and fortitude to develop a circle of artists and art spaces. The circle widened, thereby influencing our local economy, schools, and how we approach what a healthy well-rounded community is.”
The exhibit includes long-standing Methow artists as well as those who have passed on. “We hope to honor the artistic legacies they have created,” Marracci said. “They have shaped our past and are paramount to directing our future in the arts.”
Also opening in the Community Gallery is “Ancient Light,” a photography exhibition by young artist Ilo Curtis, He is a nature and landscape photographer and outdoorsman who has been raised in the Methow Valley. He is a homeschooling freshman and participates avidly in the local theater scene.
