Support Local Journalism


The 2017 edition of Gallery One’s signature event, Paint Ellensburg, was a tremendous success. My thanks goes out to gallery’s executor director, Monica Miller, Board Chair Sara Jones,  the Board of Directors, the auction committee, and all the artists, mostly local, who donated unique works of art, to this event. 

I understand that both the turnout and funds raised for this wonderful gallery set new records! All proceeds raised at this event go to support the museum and the educational programs, many of which serve children in Kittitas County. This year’s event honored Don O’Conner, one of the county’s talented artists, for his more than 30-year career dedicated to the arts. I have gone to a lot of fundraisers over the years.

Beyond a doubt, Paint Ellensburg is the best one! The board made all who come to this event feel welcome. The meal served CWU Catering was delicious and deserts provided by local restaurants and cooks was exceptional. Gallery One is a Kittitas County treasure. Our law firm, Abeyta Nelson Injury Law, is proud to be a major sponsor of Paint Ellensburg.
