The play RED written by John Logan, about artist Mark Rothko, will be performed in the Larson Gallery the evenings of April 20 and 21 at 7:30 pm and a matinee on Saturday, April 22 at 2:00 pm.
Mark Rothko, born Markus Yakovlevich Rothkowitz, was an American painter of Russian Jewish descent who immigrated to the U.S. in 1913. Rothko is known for painting rectangular fields of color and light. He completed 836 works on canvas during his lifetime.
The play takes place in Rothko's New York Studio from 1958 to 1959, where he is painting murals commissioned for him by a New York restaurant. Mark Rothko, played by Yakima Valley College instructor Timothy Jeske, gives orders to his assistant Ken, played by Yakima Valley College recent graduate Cody Jordan. As Ken mixes the paints, he questions the concept of Rothko's work being used for such a commercial venture.
The play is directed by Ray Pritchard, Drama instructor for YVC and Kendall Hall Technical Director. Tickets are $30 per person and will be available in the Larson Gallery and online at Seats were sold out to our previous play, ART, so get yours early! Proceeds from these performances will benefit the Larson Gallery Guild and Yakima Valley College Playmasters. All performances will be held in the Larson Gallery at Yakima Valley College.

Cascadian Camera Club
March 23- May 13, 2017

Cascadians Camera Club is a group of outdoor enthusiasts that enjoys capturing images of their hikes and travels in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Images are diverse as members travel popular hiking trails, Cowiche Canyon, Mt. Rainier National Park, Columbia River Gorge attractions, and the rolling hills of the Palouse. Most shared images are outdoor scenes and/or nature shots. Some members have mastered capturing eagles in the Yakima River Canyon and the Milky Way. Others within the group enjoy capturing horses in natural settings, including wild horses of the Satus/Yakama Indian Reservation.

Following what has become a popular, beautiful, and educational tradition, Larson Gallery Guild once again invites you to "Living with Art" the 18th annual Tour of Artists' Homes and Studios. The tour will take place on May 20, 2017, from 10 am to 4 pm and will feature five homes/studios of artists and one home of a prolific art collector.
This year promises to be an amazing year. The ever-popular artists, Leo Adams, has agreed to open his home/studio for the tour. His reputation is widely known; his work widely purchased. Other artists are Bernadette Crider, porcelain artists; Carolyn Nelson, sculptress, and painter; Pamela Searcy, bronze work and painter; and new to our classifications - "industrial artist" Nate Monick. His wood and metal works are crafted in his shop, Atlas and Cedar. His first big installation was Cowiche Canyon Kitchen. In addition, we present the large collection of artworks at the beautiful home of "quilt" artist, Ann Stohl.
Each artist will present items for sale. Not only do you see the work, you meet the artist in their milieu. Each "host" artist has invited a few other artists to display and sell their items, so the tour is an opportunity to see and purchase from a variety of artists.
Tickets ($20.00 and $5.00 for students) may be purchased at the Larson Gallery, Yakima Bindery, and OH! Oak Hollow Gallery and Frames. The ticket book contains directions to each tour stop allowing you to proceed as you wish.
