VALA Gallery presents the Redmond Centennial Collection

To commemorate Redmond’s 100th Anniversary, and to share the rich history of art and artists in the area, VALA Eastside (Venues for Artists in the Local Area) has selected 22 local artists to create the Redmond Centennial Collection. The collection will be installed at the VALA Gallery at Redmond Town Center and will run from Nov. 29 through January. The VALA Gallery is located on the second floor of Redmond Town Center (next to GameStop). The public is invited to attend the opening reception and awards presentation from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Nov. 29.

The Centennial Collection celebrates the artists and their unique connection to Redmond. About the collection, Marianne Johnson, VALA assistant director says, “Redmond means something different to each of the artists. We’ve asked them to share their connection to help celebrate the centennial year because whether you live or work here, we all have helped Redmond grow and change into the community it is today.”

The Artists selected to make up the Redmond Centennial Collection are:Angelina Kidd, Beth Anderson, Christopher Peltz, Crystal Edwards, Debbie Donaway, Denise Shaffer, Enisa Memic, Erika Simon, Jacqueline Calladine, Judy Selogy, Lee Hendrickson, Linda Kelly, Phil Jensen, Sadia Hussain, Shawn Simon, Sondra Friedman, Stephanie Reilly, Susan Melrath, Terri Gordon, The Redmond Muses, Ulrike Kreppold and Yiota Georgas.

The Redmond Centennial Collection is in partnership with Redmond Town Center and is sanctioned by the Redmond Centennial Planning Committee.
