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.

Jack McEntire
Artist Reception: April 28; 6-9 pm
Local sculptor Jack McEntire will present a showing of wood and rock sculpture at the Yakima Maker Space Gallery during the month of April.  Carvings will cover the time frame from the beginning of his career 21 years ago.  The exhibition will include his first 3-D carving, first relief carving, and a totem created just this year.  The bulk of the works will be derived from his personal collection of sculpture produced by artists from all over the world.  There will be works from artists in Italy, Australia, Zimbabwe, and all across North America.  Most of the art will be made from wood, but there will also be several stone works presented.

In the Main Gallery:

Debris - Evan Blackwell, Karen Hackenberg, Bonilyn Parker
It’s no coincidence this exhibit was timed for Earth Day. This exhibition brings together three artists who gain inspiration from items that most of us discard. Their inventive reuse and re-purposing of unique materials draws on themes as varied as ocean degradation, material transformation and the cycles of growth, decay, and renewal.

Bonilyn Parker is a ceramics artist-in-residence at Gallery One. In addition to being an artist, Boni also is the ceramics technician and teaches art after school and adult classes. In her functional ceramic work you will discover textures made from bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard, 2 liter bottles and beer cans.

Karen Hackenberg, a painter from the Discovery Bay near Port Townsend, lusciously depicts and rearranges discarded ocean debris in her paintings. Her environmental investigations have recently made their way onto the iPad and some of those drawings will be on display at Gallery One as well.

Evan Blackwell uses materials in surplus such as frame corners and other construction materials to create strong forms. Much like construction sites, his work is site specific and challenges the concept of the framed art piece.

In the Eveleth Green Gallery:
Mano de Orula - Xavier Cavazos
Inspired by the street art of Cuba, Xavier explores themes of the sacred along with everyday life. Cavazos also integrates discarded materials from construction sites. 

In the Hallway Gallery:

Ink for Alaska
A traveling exhibit of prints capturing the soul and art of Alaska originally created to generate awareness for the Alaska Wilderness League. Their mission is to preserve and protect the beauty and natural resources yet untapped in Alaska.
