A Sense of Place: Artists Honor Redmond With Centennial Collection

A juried exhibition of sculpture, painting, mixed-media, photography and more is currently on display at the VALA Gallery at Redmond Town Center.

Judy Selogy's contribution to the Redmond Centennial Collection is a bit more abstract than many of the works hanging next to it in the VALA Gallery at Redmond Town Center.

Using fabric, glue and oil paint, the Redmond resident created a flowing blue scene that perhaps resembles one of the town's many bodies of water. Without saying exactly what inspired her artwork, Selogy did acknowledge that Redmond's natural beauty almost always plays a part in her creations.

"You absorb all that, and eventually it comes out in your work," she said.

Selogy is one of 22 local artists currently featured in a centennial collection presented by VALA Eastside. An opening reception for the juried exhibition took place last Thursday.

From painting and photography to fabric arts and jewelry, each work is intended to convey the artist's relationship with Redmond. Many pieces are available for purchase.

The VALA Gallery is located on the second floor of the town center, next to Game Stop. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday-Sunday.

The centennial collection will continue through Jan. 25. On weekends through Dec. 23, VALA is also hosting a holiday art shop at Redmond Town Center across from Z Gallerie.
