 The Washington Center Gallery presents

 Dates: May 13 - July 10
Reception: May 16, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Olympia is a town with a strong artistic magnetism but living in our corner of the theater world is not for the weak of heart. Love and passion drive us forward but having a vast array of skills, discipline, strength of vision and soul is what gets a true artist where they need to be. This exhibition features the work of local theater artists that live beyond the walls of the theater.
