Ten percent of all entry fees will be donated to KEEN (Kittitas Environmental Education Network), a nonprofit based in Ellensburg, WA whose mission is to cultivate an active awareness and understanding of the endangered shrub-steppe.
This year our juror, Jane Kim, selected 46 works from the 475 submissions received from across the US through the Cafe’ online call site. Scroll down for a slideshow of all the accepted works. Check back soon for 360 tours of the exhibition.

Eveleth Green Gallery:
CWU Student Show Exhibit Award Winner
Each year we select one artist from the CWU Student Show to receive an award for a solo show in our gallery. We welcome Cameron this year who utilizes daily life as his subject matter. While commenting on disputing the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, Wilson touches on various overlapping themes
and strategies. Recurring subject matter in the work include his relation with popular culture and media, working with repetition, reminiscence and the investigation into the development of the slightly absurd everyday imagery. His paintings are based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multilayered images arise where he tries to develop forms that do not always follow logical criteria but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels, which incite the viewer to make new and personal associations.
