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 Learns Connect Grand Opening
August 28, 2014 2 - 5 p.m.
Wenatchee Learns Connect, The Wenatchee School District’s new partnership center is a resource center for cultivating partnerships between the community and the Wenatchee School District.
On August 28, 2014 from 2-5 p.m. the Wenatchee School District will host a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for their new partnership center Wenatchee Learns Connect located at 2. South Mission Street in Wenatchee.
Wenatchee Learns Connect was created in response to the Wenatchee Learns shared visioning campaign survey that the Wenatchee School District launched in 2011. The results of the survey showed overwhelming support for the development and creation of a partnership center that would serve as a liaison between schools and the community in an effort to personalize learning by expanding the role of educator to citizens, parents and business partners.
“We’ve spend the last 12 months taking the vision of over 4,000 members of our community and carefully crafting both a physical location and online resource for volunteers and business partners to connect with the Wenatchee school district to support personalized learning”. Says, Wenatchee Learns Coordinator, Diana Haglund. Additionally we’ve constructed a new online portal – wenatcheelearns.com for parents, citizens and businesses to get connected with volunteer opportunities that match their time and talent.
Businesses and organizations can create company profiles in the portal that are linked to the District’s new web-based career exploration system for high school students. Through these profiles businesses can share information about their products, services or caeers or offer work-based learning opportunities, company tours, classroom presenters and answer questions on a virtual message board.
Through innovative programs like this “Businesses and organizations in Wenatchee can bridge the gap and nurture the future workforce by creating a profile or offering experiential learning opportunities to students. With an anticipated shortage of skilled workers in the future due to baby boomer retirement it’s more important than ever to create a talent pipeline starting in K-12.” says Haglund.
Ribbon cutting ceremony begins promptly at 2 p.m. and the event is open to the public.
