We Invite You To Enjoy The Wenaha Experience.

The gallery also features original works by outstanding Pacific Northwest artists. The gallery’s artistic consultants select every piece of art for inspiring and thoughtful beauty, satisfaction of ownership and long-term value.
- Denise Elizabeth Stone
The batik watercolors of Denise Elizabeth Stone are a fusion of contemporary chic with primeval nature, an expression of color and texture that grabs the viewer's eye and pulls him or her forward toward the art.
Visit the gallery today to see the beginning of Stone's month-long Art Event. The LaGrande, OR, artist is donating 10 percent of her sale proceeds to bird and habitat preservation organizations.
Read all about Stone in our article, Batik Beauty, and meet Stone in person Saturday, July 21, during our Summer Celebration Art Show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Jerry Poindexter
carved wooden birds are so lifelike that when you step into the gallery, you'll be tempted to stop, hushed and still, to avoid frightening them into flight.
The Spokane artist, who has been carving birds for more than 20 years, spends hours researching their shape, form, size, proportions, and coloration before making the first cut in a piece of tupelo wood. His expertise in bird anatomy, in conjunction with an eye for form and movement, makes him a sought after judge for carving exhibitions, such as the international Columbia Flyway Wildlife Show in Vancouver, WA.
Visit the gallery today to the see Poindexter's month-long Art Exhibit, a flock of winged creatures that stand poised upon their perches. Or click on this link to view Poindexter's art and purchase it online. And read all about Poindexter in our article, Carving Birds.
- James Christensen: Whimsical, Witty, and Thoughtful.
We can all use an extra smile in our lives, and the art of James Christensen encourages us to stop and take things not so seriously for awhile.
Drop into the gallery today and take in our wall of James Christensen artwork, which ranges from the sublimely, dryly humorous to the musingly thoughtful.
We have an incredible selection of the late artist's work -- feel free to ask a gallery assistant to show you our full collection.

- Kirk Campana
Kirk Campana is an urgent care physician from Eagle, ID, who paints richly colored, tranquil landscapes in pastel. Enamored of art from childhood, Campana did not allow the insane schedule of medical school to derail his need to create art, and in the midst of endless studying and lab work, made sure he always took a class in art on the side.
Visit the gallery Monday, June 4, to catch the first day of Campana's month-long Art Event, and enter into a world of nature's peace and beauty.
(Read all about Campana in our article, Physician and Artist.)
- Alan Bean
Alan Bean made his name as an astronaut when he became the fourth human being to walk on the moon, and he made his name as an artist when he documented the historical achievement through his paintings.
The beloved astronaut/artist, who passed away May 26, left behind a legacy of adventure and space exploration, celebrating the earth seen from space, and space seen from the moon.
Visit the gallery today to see a wall of Bean's work, commemorating the life of the man who brought the moon down to the earth and our vision up to the stars.
- Deborah Bruce
In the 30 years that she worked as a professional florist, Deborah Bruce fell in love with flowers and trees and plants.

-Mary Calanche Jewelry
Dayton bead artist Mary Calanche sometimes works with beads so small, it is difficult to find the holes through which to string them.
But the sheer intricacy and detail is what makes each project exciting, and Calanche's Art Event of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings includes everything from those itty bitty beads to semi-precious stones that glisten and glitter in the light.
Visit the gallery today to see Calanche's exquisite display, and read all about the artist in our article, Beads, Beads, and Beads.

- Patrick Fleming
Kennewick artist Patrick Fleming creates pottery that is as beautiful as it is functional. Much of the clay Fleming uses is hand-dug by the artist from the area around the Tri-Cities, adding a special touch of the region to each piece.
- Focus on Framing
Special times, special days, special places.
A vintage-style commemorative poster of Dayton's All Wheel Weekend nestles in a pleasingly rustic frame, coalescing with the nostalgic image of the artwork.
