August 12th and 13th is the annual Columbia Basin Culture Tour weekend and a great time to get out and enjoy all of the wonderful artists and historical and cultural sites in the Basin Region!
 
Admission is by donation the whole weekend! This is a great chance to come up and see our newly renovated space, new exhibits, and take a tour of the property.
 
Inside our new entrance gallery we will be featuring a small temporary exhibition from Art for People: the artwork of Andy Holmes and Martine Bédard.
 
Bio: Andy Holmes and Martine Bédard, the founders of Art for People, are both art makers and art therapists who believe in the extraordinary benefits of creativity. Through donations, Art for People sponsors creative community projects around the world. Thus far, Art for People has been involved in projects in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Kenya, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, The Phillipines, Haiti, Nepal, and Syria.
 
"As artists, we recognize that different materials are more environmentally friendly and 'green' than others. We try to use re- used and recycled materials as much as possible.
In purchasing Art for People paintings, you are not only receiving a beautiful art piece, but are also keeping the creative cycle moving by supporting creative projects globally." - Martine and Andy
