ebb & flowVideo footage of light reflecting off of water at six important sites in the Pacific Northwest combine to create a moving stained-glass window. The footage used for this composition was collected at Neah Bay, 8mile Creek (North Cascades), Edmonds Bay, Puget Sound, Grand Coulee, Irrigation Canals (Yakima County), Hanford Reach (Columbia River near Tri-Cities), and Lake Crescent.

4Culture's e4c screens bring dynamic media art to an urban audience on the go. Located inside Pioneer Square's famed TK Building, adjacent to Gallery4Culture, and visible from the street and sidewalk on Prefontaine Place South, e4c features new works every month from media artists around the country.

ebb & flow

Multiple video files capturing the textures and colors or water in nature at various locations throughout Washington are layered to become a single composition inspired by stained-glass windows. As in nature, these microcosms combine to create a beautifully interdependent system. The footage used was collected at Neah Bay, 8mile Creek (North Cascades), Edmonds Bay, Puget Sound, Grand Coulee, Irrigation Canals (Yakima County), Hanford Reach (Columbia River near Tri-Cities), and Lake Crescent. Without the ocean, there is no rain. Without rain, there are no streams. Without streams, there are no rivers. Without rivers, there would be no lakes and inland rain water could not return to the ocean.

Come celebrate the sculptors of Yakima at The Seasons on International Sculpture Day (IS Day). The evening will feature remarks by David Lynx, director of Larson Gallery, and Sean Hawkins, the City of Yakima’s Economic Development Manager and short presentations by artists Rachel Dorn, Carolyn Nelson, Gregory Pierce, Denali Granholm, Andy Behrle, and John Barany and Deborah Ann. Each presenting artist will give a 10 minute presentation of selected aspects of their artistic processes, materials, and/or inspiration. After the presentations, there will be a one-night-only viewing of Andy Behrle’s newest artwork inspired by the stained-glass windows of The Seasons Performance Hall.

 Also on April 24, the public is invited to take a FREE guided tour of downtown Yakima's public with host, Carolyn Nelson. The tour will begin at 4 p.m. on April 24 in front of the historic Yakima Depot on the corner of Front Street and Sgt. Pendleton Way in the heart of downtown Yakima. It will conclude at The Seasons Performance Hall before 5 p.m. The reception and event at The Seasons is the third and last in a series of events organized by artists Carolyn Nelson and Andy Behrle (artist) to celebrate the 3-dimensional art of the Yakima Area. 

This year's events were kicked off on April 1 with the opening of "Sculpting the Valley," an exhibition of sculptures by 21 artists with strong ties to the Yakima Area at Yakima Maker Space Gallery. The exhibition will be open on IS Day from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. IS Day is organized by International Sculpture Center (in Hamilton, New Jersey), who helps connect independently registered events around the world via weblinks and live-streaming video feeds. The event will also feature live-streaming video of other events around the globe celebrating IS Day. 

 All are welcome to attend.

Immemorial is a new work that will act as a monument to timeless moments of the past, present, and future. Digitally capturing reflections of water, Behrle casts the imagery through a translucent obelisk. The organic patterns stretch and fade as they saturate the geometric monolith.

While installing hydrodome at The Prichard Art Gallery in Moscow, Idaho, I was asked to discuss my project and how visual art plays a role in what #americancultureis.

What is American culture? This project by Cultures in Harmony encourages YOU to answer that question! To catalyze reflection on this important question,violinist William Harvey will visit all 50 states in the USA—one week per state—in a collaborative, educational, and participatory quest to highlight the many strands that combine to form the American cultural tapestry. In each state, he will perform, interview people about what American culture means to them, and conduct workshops designed to encourage reflection on the topic.
