In your May 30 editorial, "Tri-City Summer: the most wonderful time of the year," you mentioned summer camps as activities, and you included Allied Arts' workshop program in a list of "camps."
That's great, but we'd like readers to know that Allied Arts Association also runs Gallery at the Park and July's Art in the Park, where people can enjoy looking at art, too. In the gallery, there's always original regional artwork and gifts and a featured show every month, as well as children's classes in summer and adult workshops at other times.
This month, the featured artists are Anne Krohn Graham and Kathryn Kaye. Anne is an internationally known metalsmith whose work is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Museum. This exhibit displays her virtuosity and innovative techniques, with an array of objects from elegant jewelry to large sculptures.
Kathryn is one of the Mid-Columbia's most beloved artists, a Kennewick native (once rodeo princess) whose work is collected throughout the country and beyond. Her must-see new work is a dramatic departure from her familiar watercolors. Her large colorful paintings and Anne's "rock" sculptures make a stunning first impression, and looking for the meaning and details of both artists' creations will be time well spent.
