SMITH & VALLEE | Exhibits
Smith & Vallee Gallery launches twelve exhibitions a year, a mix of solo and group exhibitions. Our gallery is especially well-suited for exhibiting sculpture due to the abundant natural light that floods through the original school house windows.
We often pair a sculptor along with a two dimensional artist. The month of December is reserved for our annual year in review show.
Tricia Stackle is an artist/designer, living and working in the Skagit Valley in Washington. Inspired by simple, geometric shapes, bold colors, and tactile materials, she is an artist and educator committed to rethinking the way people live with and relate to art and design. She is drawn to the dance between form and function and interested in creating artwork that invites both playful and therapeutic interactions for people of all ages. Whether making furniture, soft sculpture, home textiles, or mixed-media drawings, quality craftswomanship is at the forefront of her ethos of making.
Patty Haller’s colorful and analytical paintings explore the beauty, order and chaos of the northwest forest. Andrew Vallee presents new wood and bronze sculptures, a shift towards representation. Man-made natural objects, derived from the shores of the Samish Bay.
