West Valley Fair History Book

The West Valley Fair history book is coming together!! Good thing, too. I’m looking at about 350 pages when the thing is done! But, hey, a lot can happen in 60 years!

I had a one hour interview in Yakima with the Yakima Herald newspaper concerning the West Valley Fair 60th anniversary book. It went well. I took the only known cardboard ribbon from the first fair with me for a photo op. The article will be coming out before the fair on July 21st. I hope we sell a lot (at …$10 each). With state budget cutbacks, the fair needs every penny it can get.

Upcoming work!

Another art show opening in my future…All 3 of my entries for the “Mighty Tieton” show were accepted. The show is called “Smaller is Bigger.” All had to fit in a 10 by 10 by 10 inch box. I have a set of 3 miniature coil baskets, a clay Anasazi style canteen, and a Hupa-style coil basket. One more show to go that I know of–I have to finish a feather basket for the Yakima Allied Arts “Cowiche Canyon” show.

Hello all! I’ve got a few projects in the works right now, getting ready for a couple of events coming up.  Just finished up an art show at the Allied Arts Center in Yakima, as well as the West Valley Fair. I also have a couple of projects on display at the Sixth Street Gallery in Prosser. Also, check out the displays in the hallways at the WSU Tri-Cities campus- you just might find some of my projects.

Look for my work in a couple of upcoming shows and fairs. I plan on bringing some work up to Grandview, WA to display in the Yakima Valley Jr. Fair. I am also working on a couple projects to put on display at the Benton-Franklin County Fair.

Currently in progress is a Klickitat style basket- I started working on this project in February and expect for it to be completed by the end of August, in time for display at the Benton-Franklin County fair. Here are a couple shots of it in progress.
