Current Exhibition

“Essence of Art" by Art Gallery of SnoValley

During the summer months of June through August, Art Gallery of SnoValley will curate a show called “Essence of Art” at Blakely Hall. The show will bring together diversified art from about 15 gallery artists.
While Blakely Hall is closed for summer camps on weekdays, please be sure to view the gallery during upcoming community events like The Village Market and various Global Grub and Groove celebrations. Meet the artists and learn about each of their individual processes during a reception in the hall on Thursday, June 6, from 4–7 p.m.
“The upcoming show at Blakely Hall was inspired for the artists,” says local artist Diane Sarr. “Such a venue has little impact on the artist’s time, while giving them space to display larger works with good visibility.”
A wide range of artistic interpretations will come together for this gallery show, she adds. The exhibition features landscapes in oil, acrylic, watercolor and metal leaf as well as digitally generated pieces, abstracts and more across various mediums.
According to Diane, Art Gallery of SnoValley is a fine arts display of inspiration and creativity that extends beyond the gallery.
“Art Gallery of SnoValley has grown since the humble beginnings of a few artists in 2016 to a current Collective Membership of 20 artists,” she says.
The collective membership shares inspiration and encouragement for the arts while providing artists the opportunity to exhibit their work in a gallery open seven days a week, year-round. Art ranges from abstraction to realism in a variety of mediums: oil, watercolor, acrylic, glass, ceramics, woodworking, jewelry and mixed media.
Diane says artists in the membership have an online store presence and exposure to international tourism as well as the local Snoqualmie Valley and Puget Sound areas. Additionally, she notes that artists are able to share their talents and expertise with the community by offering art classes for all age groups.
Outside of the Blakely Hall show this summer, you can view more artwork from the Art Gallery of SnoValley in downtown Snoqualmie every day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The artist-run gallery is located at 8130 Railroad Ave SE.
