An Evening of Art and Local History
Saturday, April 15th, 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.203 2nd Ave S, Suite 120 in Okanogan
Join us for a special two-part evening featuring:
Art Open House from 5-7 pm: Local History Presentation by Doug Woodrow at 7 pm:
As part of OLT’s rotating art exhibit, the Open House will feature works from Colville Tribal member Georgia Tongel and long-time local artist Linda Vance.
These artists belong to Okanogan County Artists Association, a group which displays artwork at OLT’s office and several other locations throughout the county.
Retired teacher and local historian Doug Woodrow will present the photographs of Frank Matsura and Malott postmistress, Mabel Gavin, which preserve an important historical record of exiled Methow Indian families struggling to maintain their traditions in a changing world.
Although from two incredibly different cultures, the two photographers developed a bond of friendship and appreciation for each other’s work.
Through these photos we can reconstruct the life of a very dynamic community in Malott during the late 19thand early 20th centuries.
