February 16: Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present

This feature-length documentary film follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major retrospective of her work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. To be given a retrospective at one of the world's premiere museums is, for any living artist, the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more - it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades:
'But why is this art?'

Donni Reddington on exhibit at Family Health Centers Dental Clinic in Twisp, WA


Confluence Gallery presents

Donni Reddington

A solo exhibit at Family Health Centers Dental Clinic in Twisp, WA

January 15th - April 15th

Family Health Centers Dental Clinic
110 East 2nd Avenue Twisp, WA
509-422-5700 call for open hours
The exhibit can be viewed anytime the clinic is open on Fridays and Saturdays.

Donni Reddington is a Methow Valley photographer doing free-lance work since 2007. Her subjects range from scenic landscapes, adventurous outdoor activities to people in nature. Her addiction to photography grew quickly during her freshmen year in high school. From that point on it was clear that photography was going to be part of her life. During college, she created her own photo lab in a rund own college rental basement in Colorado. It was dark and dingy, and on a budget, it was the perfect place to set up an old Beseler enlarger and star developing her own prints.

Since the digital era took over, Donni has been shooting with multiple SLR's and creating images for various projects and just for fun. Over time, she has developed an awareness using natural light and a passion for black and white photography.

Shadow and Light exhibit

Confluence Gallery presents 

Shadow and Light


January 16 - February 27

Shadow defines light and light defines shadow, giving definition to the world around us. Artists will explore shadow and light in many dimensions; physical and metaphorical, literal and abstract.

Shadow and Light seems a description of our wonderful, snowy winters with dappled light on snow, frozen rivers, all with our low winter sun throwing long shadows. The other seasons come to mind with Shadow and Light being special to each.

But is that all it is? Stepping away from literal ideas we think of shadow and light of the human psyche, of dreams, hopes, fears or dealing with the challenges of everyday life.

Curated by Mary Lou McCollum, Shadow and Light presents a mesmerizing exhibit with variety of mediums and artists exploring the theme. Several new artists are in the gallery and we hope you will enjoy a walk through this wonderland of light.

Thanks to our exhibit sponsors KTRT, Sawtooth Dental, and Floyd Company.
