"Art and Memory"
“Art and Memory" is an exhibition created in partnership between the Redmond Historical Society and VALA. This exhibition features artists and Redmond residents Dorisjean Colvin and Loana “Barney” Johnson Reilly. These artistic women each captured a unique view of Redmond in their works, offering an opportunity to see the city we share through their eyes.
Some locations you may still recognize, while others are now just a memory.
How will today’s artists shape our view of Redmond in the future? What will you remember?
On Display March 1st - 31st 2022
At the VALA Art Center, 8020 161st Ave NE, #104, Redmond, WA 98052
