Tri-City Herald - - Explore -

A pop-up gallery filled with work by sev­eral well-known Tri-Cities artists is open in Richland.

Shoot­ing Star Gallery’s hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tues­days to Satur­days through Dec. 23. It’s at 767 Wil­liams Blvd.

“Sev­eral of us tried this on a smaller scale last year, and it seemed to fill a need, both for shop­pers and for lo­cal artists,” said pho­tog­ra­pher Scott But­ner, gallery founder, in a news re­lease. “There’s a large num­ber of tal­ented artists in our area, and some­thing of a short­age of gallery space for them to ex­hibit their work, es­pe­cially dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. So I de­cided to do some­thing about that.”

The work ranges from hand­crafted note­cards and lo­cal scenic post­cards to larger orig­i­nal pieces.

“It’s so easy to buy mass pro­duced, ‘cookie cut­ter’ items, but when you want to give a gift that is truly orig­i­nal, it’s some­times a lit­tle harder to know where to look – so we try to fill that niche,” But­ner said.

The artists with work in the gallery in­clude But­ner, David Bian­cosino (wood turn­ing), Leo Bow­man (wood turn­ing), Charlette Burge (pho­tog­ra­phy), John Cle­ment (pho­tog­ra­phy), Heidi Elk­ing­ton (pen­cil and pen), Peter Hui (pho­tog­ra­phy), San­dra Jewell ( jew­elry), Brenda Kelmel (acrylic paint­ing), Terry Mad­sen (wa­ter­col­ors), Heid Riha (glass) and Pam Sharp (wa­ter­col­ors).
