Ishaan Raga
January 12 - February 25, 2017
A doctor by profession, Deepali Mahanta Kayal started painting at a young age after she won a national level painting competition. She has honed her skills over a period of time at several places: New Delhi, Jaipur, Chennai, and Guwahati in India. She has explored a variety of forms and experimented with different techniques and styles. Her engagement with various morbid conditions of her patients has not dampened her spirits, but rather inspired her to search for hidden beauty, pathos, and meaning in our day-to-day lives. Indian folklore, mythology, and philosophy have been recurring themes in her work. She firmly believes that art is the quest for self-expression and truth. Dr. Kayal currently lives in Madhya Pradesh, India.

LGG Bus Tour to the Terracotta Warriors
May 7th, 2017
More Information to Come
Experience Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor, a one-of-a-kind exhibition premiering at Pacific Science Center in Seattle for a limited five-month run in spring of 2017 and featuring artifacts from the first imperial dynasty of China. The expansive collective of terracotta statues—including soldiers, civil officials, and entertainers—at the burial complex of China’s First Emperor is awesome in its scope. Pull them apart, however, and each individual statue tells its own piece of the story of the culture, craft, and science of one of history’s most monumental endeavors.
The story begins in 1974, as farmers are digging a well in an orchard, and come across something mysterious underfoot. The story continues back in time, to 210 BCE, as guests learn of the audacious emperor who built an empire from clay to rule for eternity. This exhibit will take guests on a journey through the discovery of the statues, their symbolism, the cultural and historical context of the warriors, the mystery of the tomb that they guard, and the technology that contributes to our understanding of the statues today. Featuring an impressive immersive experience where guests will see a simulation of the original boldly-colored warriors transforming over time, and where rows of pristine terracotta sculptures seem to repeat endlessly, Terracotta Warriors will express the awesome scale of the project to build and preserve these quiet guards of the afterlife.
Cascadian Camera Club
March 23, 2017, 3-8pm
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. 

The Camera Club meets the second Monday of each month, 7 pm, at the Yakima Alliance Church, 902 South 36th Avenue, Yakima. Annual dues are $25.
