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!

Looking Back & Looking Forward: The 1994 and 2014 Fires
September 05, 2014 5:30pm
This summer marks the 20th anniversary of the 1994 fires. Wildfires burned over 181,000 acres around Leavenworth, Blewett Pass, and the Entiat valley, destroying 37 homes. As North Central Washington faces another hotter- and drier-than-average season, and communities to the north of us experience significant property loss, we will gather to reflect on the 1994 Fire Season and the 20 years of rebuilding, regrowth, and the resilience of local communities and the natural ecosystems that surround us.
Please join us at 5:30pm for a community potluck on the lawn at Barn Beach Reserve, to be followed at 7:00pm by a presentation in The Barn Learning Center, showcasing John Marshall's stunning fire photography. We will also open the floor for community storytelling; please consider bringing a story to share.
This event is a partnership between the Wenatchee River Institute and the Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition. All donations will go towards regional fire relief efforts through the Community Foundation of North Central Washington.
Location: Wenatchee River Institute at Barn Beach Reserve
