Tag Archives: Confluence Gallery

Both The Winthrop Gallery and the Confluence Gallery hung new shows this week and I have new work in each show.

At The Winthrop Gallery, the theme is Methow Wonderland. I brought in two pieces showing Alpenglow on mountains that I can see from my house. One of my favorite things is to watch the sunlight spread over the snow-covered mountains as I have my coffee in the morning. Today is overcast so that won’t happen.


The Winthrop Gallery is open from 10:00 til 5:00 Thursday through Monday.


At The Confluence Gallery in Twisp, Caryl Campbell curated a show titled Weathering Change. I had this in mind while I was traveling through Utah in November.

The Confluence is open Wednesday through Friday from 10:00 til 5:00, and on Saturday from 10:00 til 3:00. There will be a reception tomorrow, Saturday the 12th from 5:00 til 7:00 pm.

I continue to work on photo encaustics this winter. Three of my new pieces are hanging in the new show – Shadow and Light – at The Confluence Gallery in Twisp. Photo encaustics are a combination of photos, beeswax and pigments. For this series I have been embedding the photo in the beeswax on a wooden substrate. I hope you have a chance to see this show in person.

Last weekend I had the opportunity to take a documentary photograhy class at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp. Lyn McCracken, of Seattle, who is showing her work, Mujeres de la Guerra, at the gallery, taught it. Lyn is a teacher at the NW School in Seattle and also has worked on several documentary projects of her own. I was very impressed with her large format black and white darkroom prints.

We were a small and varied group of students. One person borrowed a camera, another used only a cell phone. We all had stories to tell. I worked on a couple of different story lines and when it was time to show our final projects, I did a simple walk through Twisp.


I started with an image of Lyn giving us direction. Please excuse the typo in the first slide! Egads.






This fellow has a great story. I hope to follow up on it at some point.











At some point we were supposed to include a self portrait.

Many thanks to Donna Keyser, Confluence Gallery manager, for inviting Lyn to come to Twisp, show her work and teach for us. And many thanks to Lyn for coming.
