Granger man displays gourd art at Larson Gallery now through July 6

YAKIMA - This year's Larson Gallery Guild Members Arts and Crafts Show is on now through Friday, July 6.

And to top it off, Granger resident Guillermo Castaneda is showing off his gourd art.

The gallery, situated on the YVCC Yakima campus, recently opened its non-competitive art-piece display of its active membership.

Gallery directors, according to Castaneda, say his entry was one-of-a-kind from the Lower Valley. In addition, a majority of participants hail from Yakima Ellensburg, Wenatchee and Tri-Cities.

Castaneda says, "Had I not entered my oil medium gourds, the Lower Valley would not have been represented.

"I encourage members of our communities to visit the gallery to view the many artworks showing," he added.

Castaneda transformed three ordinary gourds into artwork. The titles of the oil-painted artwork are "Renaissance: Madonna of my valley and St. Michael the Archangel," "Grapes of my Valley," and "Rainer cherry tree in bloom."
