PALOUSE LIGHT AND COLOR FEATURING PHOTOS BY ED BROBERG
Date: June 4-June 30.


Images of the Palouse by Ed Broberg will be featured in a new exhibit at the Dahmen Barn. "Palouse Light and Color” presents vibrant images of soil, sky and turf, and runs June 4-30. 

Broberg became interested in photography while growing up in Walla Walla. Surrounded by the Blue Mountains and golden wheat fields, he was inspired to bring the outside in through his art. Stints as an alpine ski coach, photojournalist, and sailboat racer took him to all fifty states, several foreign countries, and Chewelah, which is the current base for his photography business. This past season he was reintroduced to the beauty of the Palouse when he covered the Washington State University Cougars for The [Chewelah] Independent. "The Palouse region is a performance-enhancing drug for landscape photographers and reminds me so much of my hometown, only on steroids without the wine,” Broberg said. Images of local landscapes, weathered buildings and Washington State University will be on view, along with a few street and sailing images from San Francisco. Prints will be available for sale, as well as unique items, such as greeting cards, tote bags and shower curtains.

"I find the greatest reward of photography is the opportunity to share what I see with people in hopes they look at the world in a different way,” said Broberg.


REALIST WORKS OF SAM COLLETT
Date: July 2-July 30
OPENING RECEPTION: JULY 2 FROM 1-3PM


Join Artisans at the Dahmen Barn in July for a special exhibit of  "realist"works by Oregon artist, Sam Collett.  Mr. Collett will also be conducting a two day workshop at the end of July in addition to being our featured artist for the month in the Hay Loft Gallery.

Sam Collett considers himself a "portrait, figurative and landscape painter” and "realist painter” and lives in Joseph in Wallowa County Oregon. He shares about his inspiration on his own gallery page, "In the northeast corner of the state, it is a land of vast and majestic beauty. The mixture of forested mountains, rural farm and ranches has become my artistic metaphor. Wallowa County is a constant source of inspiration; this land and its people are always an artistic challenge to me.”  His expressive emphases are drawing and painting, with oils, pastels, watercolor and all major drawing materials as his mediums.
  
Mr. Collett received his formal education at Westminster College studying with Don Doxey followed by study in the MFA program at the University of Utah Art Department with Alvin Gittins, Earl Jones, and Albert Handell and again with Albert Handell at Woodstock, NY. The Artist has taught drawing and painting for over 25 years in many venues in Utah and the pacific northwest.  Sam Colletts’ work has been exhibited at the Salmagundi Club of New York, American Pastel Society of New York, Degas Pastel Society of New Orleans Louisiana, Oil Painters of American, Salon International Competition Green House Gallery Texas and has had one person shows at Kimball Art Center, Park City Utah, University of Utah, Springville Art Museum Utah, Bountiful Art Museum Utah, and Pendleton Art Center Oregon.
