Art Event: Laura Gable – Oil Painter

Browse Laura Gable’s art:

It’s easy to forget that, when we put something in the back seat of the car, it doesn’t go away.  Artist Laura Gable, however, never forgot what she set in the back seat, and when the time came to retrieve it, she readily and happily did so.

“In college, I loved all my art classes,” the Kennewick oil painter says, “but they started to take a back seat when my family advised I follow more practical pursuits rather than art (which ‘didn’t make any money’).” So she switched her double major from Art and Accounting to Accounting and Data Processing, and entered a career as an accountant and auditor.

“The funny thing about it,” Gable adds, “is that when these business roles needed anything artistic done (posters, invitations), they came to me and I’d create them by hand.”

So, even though art was sort of in the back seat, it functioned in the capacity of back seat driver, ensuring that Gable always heard — and heeded — its voice. When a job layoff prompted Gable to retrain as a graphic designer, the art in the back seat settled into the passenger seat, and not many years later, took over the driver’s position as Gable turned to painting full time.

Gable now works out of a studio in historic downtown Kennewick, maintaining hours “by appointment” because, on any given day, she is more likely in the field somewhere, painting en plein air, a French term which describes painting outside, as opposed to in the studio.

“I started doing it before all the Plein Air conventions and hub-bub started, and before everyone was doing it and it became the new buzzword, the new ‘golf,'” Gable says. “I thought I knew how to paint until I went outside, and it was like I had to start all over again.

“Painting outside is a constant learning experience, and nature is a consummate teacher.”

There is the weather — which isn’t always, and frequently isn’t — balmy; there are insects and crawling things and larger creatures and other living and unpredictable elements of nature; and there’s the light, which doesn’t stay conveniently in one place for hours on end. Plein air painting, Gable explains, requires that the artist stop and truly see, processing the colors before her eyes, and letting the brush speak with a few expressive strokes as opposed to many smaller, painstakingly detailed ones.

Art Event: Kathy Snow – Sewing

Browse Kathy Snow’s art:

Santa Claus could use a person like Kathy Snow on his staff, and not just because her last name fits well into his company theme.

Nor is it because the Dayton sewist  (a recently coined term that combines the words “sew” and “artist”) creates doll clothes to fill the dream wardrobe of every child who owns and loves an 18-inch American Girl style doll.

Snow’s prowess with the sewing machine, and her ability to transform fabric, notions, lace, and buttons into intricately sewn items of art, approaches a proficiency that borders on wizardry, a level of achievement in line with what St. Nicholas demands at his North Pole shop.

Appropriate for the correlation, Snow discovered the magic of hand sewing as a 9-year-old child, fully launching into the craft in 7th grade, when she took a sewing class and decided to never stop.

“I have made LOTS of things in my lifetime,” Snow says. “Dresses for myself, dresses for my daughter when she was growing up, costumes for her and my grandchildren. I have made many many things through the years that I have given away to family and friends.”

Snow’s present passion focuses on dresses, coats, nightgowns, jackets, slacks, skirts, and blouses for those 18-inch dolls, which she purchases on sale at box stores and decks out in fashion for every season. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have time to create a multiplicity of items from fabric, ranging from kitchen tea-towels that look like old fashioned aprons (and fit, incidentally, an 18-inch doll, should you happen to have one on hand) to quilts, from full-sized 1930s style aprons for full-sized humans to Christmas stockings.

“I get involved in making other things that steer me away from the doll clothes,” Snow says. “I tend to start too many things at the same time, but I do manage to get things done, just not as quickly as I once did.”

What a great gallery!  I am impressed by the way you display the art.  The ambiance makes you want to stay.  I like the mix of national artists and local artists.  You have something for everyone – the serious art collector and the casual visitor.  The small gifts remind me of an excellent museum shop.

Larry O. Mausten, WI

The Wenaha Gallery feels like a second home to me. I always feel welcome when I come through the door; I’m not just another customer whose money they’re after, they really care.  In my personal experience with the gallery the staff bent over backwards to make me happy and this kind of quality is as valuable as the fine art they keep.

Katrina J. Dayton, WA

The client-centered service approach provided by Wenaha Gallery included much curiosity about what each piece of art or photography meant along with the history or story behind each piece.  The owners and staff took the time to understand not only the vision I had for each piece but wanted to understand the intended space, environment and lighting.  Their level of expertise about color provided fruitful conversation about each individual piece and the different framing/matting options.  The creative opportunities that arose between my vision, their vision, and their expertise lead to a custom conservation framing experience. The owners and staff working across the state in Dayton, WA were very creative and timely in conducting effective communications by knowing when best to use the phone, email, texting and/or social media.  In the end, the framed memories are inspiringly beautiful, preserved and even more meaningful.

I have been coming to the Wenaha Gallery for several years and every time I walk in the door, there are new items to admire, new artists to view and interesting people to meet.  The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and both able and willing to discuss any of the artists and their art.  From time to time I have had the Gallery frame some of the artistic pieces that are family heirlooms.  The care that they take to understand the piece, its history, and where I want to place it in my home adds to the pleasure of doing business with them.  When they are finished, the frame has become part of the artistic piece.  When I am in Eastern Washington, the Wenaha Gallery is a certain stop.

Ann G. Berrien Springs, MI

The framing memories project all started with the decision to develop a will and a desire to eventually will my meaningful art and/or photography to family and friends.  The experience with Wenaha Gallery would provide me with not only the most treasured framed memories but the most treasured experience.
