John Bissonette & Sarah Haven

Painter, John Bissonette of Yakima and ceramic artist, Sarah Haven of Ellensburg, feature their colorful and patterned works in a two person exhibition.

John is interested in images and information that are in flux.  No one object that he makes is meant to be understood as a unified statement or something to be comprehended concretely. Much like memes, search histories, and information that comes to us via the digital, any one piece has the potential to be re-imagined at some point in the future.

In addition to being the Gallery One Retail Manager, Sarah Haven has a studio practice creating well-designed ceramic vessels. Her intrigue with color and pattern makes itself known in the myriad designs she overlays onto her functional hand-built works.


Eveleth Green Gallery (exhibit held over):

Robin & Scott Mayberry

We’ve held over this fantastic show by this dynamic local couple featuring works that explore memory, relationships and the constancy of change.

Scott’s intricate pen and ink drawings look at the weight of nostalgia in everyday objects, and how images from childhood continue to symbolize the complexities of adulthood. Robin’s work in fiber and encaustic explores the echoes of history through rich layers, looking at the way the past paves the present even as it is forgotten beneath fresh experiences.

Brought together into a cohesive collection through a subtle palette, Connect/ Disconnect is a journey through the mind, both abstract and image-driven, fantastical and rooted in life’s daily stage.

Picasso & Hallway Gallery:
Downtown Ellensburg Poster Project
Rob Fraser, Jesse Cunningham, Mindy Siks

In partnership with the Ellensburg Downtown Association, Gallery One commissioned three local photographers to take portraits of Ellensburg business owners. With a focus on the downtown core, this project showcased 36 businesses and business owners, lining their portraits in the downtown store fronts. This project, funded by the Ellensburg Arts Commission, represents a sign of solidarity and resilience in our community during the recent business shutdown caused by the pandemic.
