Elberta (Betty) J. Wood, titled "Walla Walla and Beyond".
The show dates are August 1st through September 20th. Opening show
reception is August 9 from 5 to 8 P.M.
(Betty) Wood is a local multi-media artist who recently was awarded the
2014 Leola Condotta Award from the Allied Arts Association for
excellence in a 2-dimensional medium.
In this CAVU Cellars show, she will feature art inspired by this
beautiful Walla Walla Valley as well as international travel. Travels
included a three-week watercolor workshop on the Island of Amorgos in
Greece, a pastel painting workshop in a villa near Florence, Italy, a
trip to China with the national People to People program, trips to,
the Netherlands, as well as
annual trips to visit family in Maine. The venue will also include 3D
art in wood. She
participated in many workshops and classes taught by local and regional
Betty has lived in the Walla Walla Valley nearly 40
years and worked at the local VA Hospital for many years until
retirement. ‘Creating’ has
always been an integral part of her being from childhood.
However, early creativity had more to do with fabric and fiber
for ‘art’ activity was not available in childhood or high school.
Creative activity was focused on home decorating and family
clothing while raising four children and in full-time employment.
Her paintings began in watercolor and expanded to
include pastel. Exploration
and experimentation with other media continues to increase possibilities
for artistic expression.
Woodcarving is one of those more recent interests.
Her work in wood has received many ribbons and a Best of Show
award as well as publication in the National Woodcarving Magazine.
She recently carved wood blocks for an inter-active feature for
children at the Fort Walla Walla Museum.
CAVU Cellars is hosting The Mythical / Movable
Blue Mountain Bluegrass Jam on each second Friday of the month from 6:30 to 10:00 PM. No
cover charge. New musicians are always welcome!
Bluegrass is an American
music form that traditionally employs acoustic, string instruments
(guitar, bass, banjo, fiddle and mandolin) and harmony singing.
While some bluegrass jam groups are very particular about what they play
and how they play it……the Mythical / Movable Jam Group is fairly
relaxed. Most music can be played “bluegrass style” and you may
hear a folk, old-time or even a rock tune at one of these jams.
Song choice is passed around the jam circle, so
everyone gets to choose at least one tune that they know, each time
The Mythical / Movable Bluegrass Jam actively promotes bluegrass music
and encourages people to listen, appreciate and participate in keeping
bluegrass & acoustic music alive in the Walla Walla valley.
