“… I appreciated Natalie’s ceramics lesson with my class at Ida Nason today. She was organized, great with the kids, well-planned and flexible with our time constraints. I was so impressed with her level of expertise and kind demeanor with the class. They loved it and are so thrilled to get their pinch pots back! In my 19 years in the Ellensburg School District, I have only had a few lessons from guests go so smoothly. I will definitely get her on my calendar next year! She is a gift to the gallery and to us in the community. ” – Katrina Durham
“I am very impressed with everything you are doing at the center. I will say again that the show is stunning.  There are so many pieces that I found direct connections to and others that stand alone as unique and breathtaking.  Hopefully we will get a chance to continue that conversation.”  – MacRae Wylde

“… sharing a personal story can create connection and hit a nerve in a room full of strangers. We are all in this together and we have a responsibility to do something.. and we are! PK is a perfect example of bringing people together to connect!” – Lindsay Morris


“I learned so much at Gallery-One that not only helped me to improve my work but also taught me about the administrative side of things and how the professional art world operates. Your stellar letters of recommendation helped pave the way towards grad school at UAlbany and ultimately my teaching career. You guys have significantly impacted me both as an artist, and as a person and I thank you.” –  Adrian Lee


“Ken and I are transiting through Los Angeles and did a marathon museum-hopping day today, using our NARM pass all the way.  We nearly paid for the membership in one day!  We’re having a great time. Thanks for making this membership possible.”Patricia Cutright


“I love Gallery One and Ellensburg! Last March I was juror for their show called Cut it Out, the national collage competition, AND they gave me a solo show there. Renee and staff are so warm and smart and accommodating and generous! I have total respect.”   – Deborah Faye Lawrence, Artist


“This was a very special night in our small town, a Pecha Kucha night hosted by Gallery One with a huge array of speakers talking about education in some form. How we learn, why we learn, how technology is changing the way we learn, how important hands-on and independent learning is, even just how what food we serve kids is transforming them. It was the perfect blend of people and I left feeling filled up because sometimes you really really need that. When the to-do list is never ending and it seems impossible to juggle family and work life you need others to tell their stories to you to remember why you do what you do ‪#‎pechakucha ‪#‎pechakuchaeburg”  – Christina Miller, Greenbow Farm


“The premier venue in this small western college town for small (50 – 250) receptions, concerts, fundraisers, galas. Nice rotation of artist showings, with stable offerings of some in residence, interesting local jewelery/pottery/prints/textiles. Also has classes (kids and adults) that I haven’t experienced but are always full. An important component of the local cultural scene, perfectly located in historic downtown.”

“Love this place and the people in it! I have made the short drive from Yakima many times to attend various classes and events. I always come away inspired and excited to forge ahead with my artistic endeavors!” Carol Guthrie


“Excellent wine tasting event at Jazz in the Valley! Clean, modern, and yet, historic venue with friendly staff and a fun atmosphere, again, thank you. You deserve a pat on the back.” – Alison Huntzinger
