Our Executive Director and longtime educator Kate Brosnan Bradley will be leaving the organization in order to relocate to Arizona to be with her family members. Although we are sad to see her go, we respect and admire her decision to dedicate this time of her life to her loved ones. Anyone who has ever been around Kate has most likely been affected by her warm laughter and sincere kindness. Those who have worked with her have lauded her professionalism and astute leadership.

Kate started at WPCA in 2006 as Education Director and became Executive Director in January 2014 Read more →

In the Realm of Innocents: An Exhibition of Mysticism and Lore

“Good Luck Painting” by Gina Litherland

January 30 – March 7, 2015
Open Reception: Friday, January 30, 5–9 pm.

Old stories live on through the retelling in each generation and are given new life from reinterpretation. We often learn about our own virtues through characters portrayed in folklore and fairy tales. In our exhibition In the Realm of Innocents we present six artists and their artwork that takes on classic iconography. The visual narrative can be seen as introspective of the artists, just as we often see ourselves in stories in which we are most drawn to.

The exhibition is curated by Michael Flanagan and Kimberly Storage. Read more →

We proudly continue our 20142015 Featured Member Exhibition installment with artist Kevin Giese‘s “Glass House” and “My Buddhist Cave” series.

WPCA member artist Leann Wooten presents her work at our spring Featured Member Exhibition.

Her work uses found objects and materials of varied texture and shape to create imagery that are reminiscent of folklore and mythology. Wooten’s approach to art is spontaneous, never preconceived, and tends to explore the world around us by molding it into something new.
