ELLENSBURG, Wash. - An art gallery in Ellensburg is celebrating 50 years in the community.
Gallery One, a non-profit organization has been operating since the late 1960’s.
Not only does it provide art exhibits but it also offers ceramic and art classes, including summer camps for the youth.
Organizers said it’s been a space for the entire community to not just look at art but learn how to make art by inspiring creativity all around.
“You don’t get to 50 year as a non-profit organization in the arts without the love and passion of a community that supports your mission,” said executive director Monica Miller. “They’ve embraced the arts in our schools when often the pendulum is swinging in the opposite way and most important they’ve embraced the arts as a way to form community,”.
In celebration of this milestone they invited every artist that has exhibited at the gallery in the past.
They have about 175 art pieces from these artists come dating back to when the gallery first opened.
