Lance Dooley: "The Greatest Sacrifice" Art Exhibit at St. Luke's Episcopal Church
July 04, 2014 - August 31, 2014 5:00 to 8:00 pm Friday July 4th - Reception
Lance Dooley will exhibit 8 of his unique pieces including a sculpture and 7 oil sketches in a one person show, July 4 - August 31, 2014, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 428 King St., Wenatchee. An opening reception honoring him will be held July 4, from 5 – 8 PM, and is free and open to the public.
The focal point of the exhibit will be a large bust of Jesus depicting the moment his spirit departed. Lance wants to draw the viewer into the moment so that one's own life could be reflected upon. The scale of the portrait is nearly on par with the portrait portion of "The David" sculpture in Italy. The style of this work is a cross between Neoclassical and Renaissance.
Lance attended the Florence Academy of Art in Florence Italy (2005-2008) and graduated with the Best Sculpture of The Year award and thereafter has devoted his life to the creation and educational process of art.
With the mind of an engineer, the soul of an artist and the dedication of a soldier, Lance continues to create artwork and public commissions in the beautiful state of Washington he calls home.
Most recent projects include the highly publicized 7-foot bronze sculpture at Pybus Public Market, a bronze eagle on basalt column for the Veterans Tribute project on the campus of Wenatchee Valley College and a series of sheet metal birds in the downtown corridor of Edmonds, WA.
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, located in the Grandview Historic District, is a holy place dedicated to worship, healing, and outreach. We actively seek to develop a diverse, wholly engaged community. All are welcome!

Wenatchee RIver Clean Up
August 09, 2014 9 - 12
Join us to remove debris from the Wenatchee River. Meet at the East Leavenworth boat launch or Cashmere Riverfront Park at 9 am Sat August 9th. We will have a post-clean up BBQ with food and entertainment at Riverfront Park in Cashmere from 12-1.
The Wenatchee River Cleanup started in 2009 when a local citizen voiced concern about hazardous metal objects in the river. Since then, the Chelan County Natural Resources Department has removed hazardous material from the river and hosted volunteer clean up events where citizens float a section of river or walk the river banks to remove garbage and debris. Since 2009, the clean up has removed ~29,000 pounds of metal and trash from the Wenatchee river and tributaries. Each year the volunteer clean up has removed ~ 3,000 pounds of debris.
In 2014, Chelan County Natural Resource Department is teaming up with Cascadia Conservation DIstrict and the Cashmere Lion's Club to host a volunteer river clean up. Come join us!
If you plan to float a section of river as part of the Clean Up on August 9, please contact us to discuss launch and take-out time and locations.
Location: East Leavenworth Boat Launch, Cashmere Riverfront Park, or float the river!
