If you missed out on the Jacob Lawrence art exhibit at the Larson Gallery in Yakima, that is a tragedy. That was a rare experience unlike any other, being that this exhibit has been featured at the Smithsonian and in Seattle art museums. Don't fret, my pet, there is another exciting art exhibit coming to the Larson Gallery that I have to tell you about.

This new exciting art exhibit coming to the Larson Gallery is called the "Art Works Northwest" and will be featured in the gallery from March 19th through April 23rd.

The exhibit will feature pieces from artists all over the Yakima Valley and even dip down into the Tri-Cities area (Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland).

Members work in both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional media and include painters, potters, jewelry artists, photographers, wood turners, sculptors, and glass artists.

Some 60+ artists will be excited to see their works on display inside the brand new elegant facility belonging to the Yakima Valley College (formerly Yakima Valley Community College). Art Gallery Director, David Lynx, was one of my bosses when I worked as a receptionist at the Yakima Valley Museum. He was the Art Curator then and eventually became the new director at the Larson Gallery. When I heard that he was teaching an art class at YVC, I quickly signed up for it. Professor Lynx was tough, but fair, and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Eastern Asian art of past centuries. He has transformed the old Larson Gallery into the state-of-the-art hidden treasure in plain sight that it is today.
