March 10 - April 14, 2018

Over the past eight years, Judy Gelles has interviewed and photographed more than 300 fourth grade students from a wide range of economic and cultural backgrounds in China, India, South Korea, England, St. Lucia, Italy, South Africa, Nicaragua and multiple areas of the United States including Toppenish, Washington. She asked all of the students the same three questions: Who do you live with? What do you wish for? What do you worry about?

A Fourth Grader's Take on 4th Grade Stories
Article by: Allison Dorn 
Roosevelt Elementary School

I’m in fourth grade and I went to the show Fourth Grade Stories at Larson Gallery. It was not what I expected. There were many pictures of fourth graders facing the wall in different poses. Around them were the answers to these three questions: Who do you live with?, What do you wish for?, And What do you worry about?

As I walked around the room I noticed some similarities in many of the pictures. When they said who they lived with they also explained what their families did for work and food. Some of the things I thought were most noticeable were how they said they had many family members in their houses but they didn’t have very big houses so some of them had to have many family members in single beds. Many were also worried about security and family members getting lost or running away. Many of their families had split apart from each other because they either didn’t have money, were divorced, working in different places, or one of the fourth graders had a father in jail.

When I went in, I also noticed a few similarities that they had with me like how some of their parents worked at colleges and they had fences in case of someone trying to rob them. My mom also works at a college and my family also has precautions for robbery.

Allison is the daughter of Rachel and Sean Dorn. She goes to Roosevelt Elementary School; her teacher is Joshua Alexander.

The Artist Within – A Different View of Dementia​​​​​​​
March - April
The Artist Within – A Different View of Dementia.
Surprising, delightful and inspiring art by vibrant people, 60-101, living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementias. This extraordinary artwork is a revelation, opening hearts and minds to a different way of thinking about dementia, enabling us to see that people living with dementia are still here, living with dignity, creativity, and joy.

Jen Borst
If one were to observe Jen Borst’s career over the last decade, it would seem that she has found more than 24 hours in the day: in addition to participation in many multi-artist shows across Washington State, “The View From Here” is Borst’s seventh solo exhibition as a painter, the shutter counter on her camera indicates that Jen takes about 30,000 photos a year in her life as a professional portrait photographer, somehow finding time for both visual mediums, while simultaneously gaining the attention of national press outlets for her work as a songwriter and vocalist in a folk group that plays more than 100 shows annually. This work ethic has allowed her to carve a meaningful place for herself in all three disciplines. Continue reading here.

April 28 through May 26

Opening Reception April 28th, 2018 

11:00 AM to 4:00 PM 


The International Sculpture Center changed their previous idea about a specific date to:  the last Saturday in April   -    ISC Day will be Saturday, April 28, 2018.

This year the Boxx Gallery in Tieton will be hosting, Sculpting the Valley II, and Andy Behrle and I have again volunteered to coordinate this exhibit and a number of other events that will be taking place in Tieton and Yakima this year.  We would love to have you include a piece of your sculpture in the exhibit.   We do need to start planning specifics so please let either Andy,, 509 823-3113 or Carolyn,, 509 952-8383,  know if you plan to participate.  Andy will be in touch with you asking for images closer to the exhibit opening.

There are a number of other events in the planning in both Tieton and Yakima that day and when those are firmer, we will get that information out to you along with check in date, etc.  If you have an idea for something you would like to do/see happening, would love to hear it! 

Hope you have Sculpting the Valley II on your list of 2018 exhibits.

Please send confirmation to one or both of us, or
