Generation Retrospective Pt. 1

April 18th – May 10th

Public Reception: April 18th 6 – 9pm

Generational Retrospective is a two-part exhibition showcasing two different trajectories one of father and one of son. Part one features outsider artist Richard Tracy, more affectionately known as RichArt”. Both a teacher and artist Richard spent a varied career in eastern and central Washington slowly becoming an icon in the folk art world. In the late 1980’s Richard settled in Centralia Washington and began transforming his home through installational collage based art, ultimately developing the work he is best known for called “Art Yard”.

Generational Retrospective Pt. 1 features recent works from Richard Tracy. Although “Art Yard” no longer exists he has translated the same spontaneous dynamic to his low relief multi-media works that will be featured in Fulcrum Gallery.

Got Your Back – Healing Through Art

Back Prints by Stephanie Koscelnik
May 6, 2017 7:30pm – 11:30pm.

A collaborative art collection grown from a healing experiment and a coming together of friends after a great loss.

After two major knee surgeries I found a new way of self expression through painting. When I first created a “back print” I felt like I found a hidden beauty. A story of self. After a close friend passed away from cancer this project turned into something much more meaningful. “got your back” is a healing journey that involves 21 back prints of myself and friends that surrounded me during this time. -Stephanie

Join us Saturday May 6th 7:30 – 11:30 for a very personal exhibition of Stephanie’s work. You will be able to experience her unique “Back Prints” in person. The prints will be paired with the musical styling Gina Belliveau and light refreshments.

Blue Collar

Blue CollarDecember 4th – February 19th
Opening Reception: December 4th 6pm
Artist Talk: December 17th 6pm

Paintings by Adrian Bouchard

Blue Collar is a unique collection of work sourced from the early part of the last century. Period photographs and antique serving platters are wedded, transforming into bold dimensional portraits. Miners, farmers, child workers, and housewives are presented as haunting reflections of hardship and longing juxtaposed within the opulent filigree of service and wealth. Blue Collar reminds us of who we are and where we have come from. This work is especially poignant for today’s culture as we slide into a similar economic dynamic as The Great Depression.
