The 3rd NCW Juried Art Show & Sale presented by the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center showcases quality work by regional artists in a museum setting. The art show opens during the First Friday Artwalk of June on Friday, June 1 from 5-8pm. This year’s event highlights area artists of both two and three-dimensional original works that will be on display and for sale. The exhibit will be open to the public during regular museum hours through the first Friday of September. This exhibit is co-sponsored by the City of Wenatchee Arts, Recreation & Parks Committee.
From 1907 to 1930 photographer Edward S. Curtis took on the colossal task of documenting the remaining intact Native American tribes of the American West. The resulting portfolio, The North American Indian, contains twenty volumes of photographs and ethnographic text. The Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center will recognize the 150th anniversary of Edward Curtis’ birth by presenting an exhibition displaying images selected from Volumes 7 and 8 of Curtis’ portfolio along with interpretive text panels, an exhibit guide and relevant displays on loan from private collections. The images used in this exhibit have been graciously provided by the Seattle Public Library.
