Smith & Vallee Gallery Tenth Anniversary Show Exhibit dates: May 6-28, 2017 | Anniversary Celebration: May 6th, 2017 (4-8pm) This May Smith & Vallee Gallery will celebrate ten years of showing some of the finest art and artists in the Northwest. They will be hosting an extraordinary group show that includes over eighty artists they have represented over the years. This show is a celebration of the artists who have contributed to their success and helped establish Smith & Vallee Gallery. In 1995 Andrew Vallee, while still an art student at Western Washington University, was invited to participate in an art show at the legendary Edison Eye Gallery. It was then that he first laid eyes on the turn-of-the-century schoolhouse that would come to house the Smith & Vallee Gallery 10 years later. In 2005 Andrew and his fiancée Andrea were in Edison to attend another show at the Edison Eye. They took a stroll up the street and saw that this long-coveted building had a For Sale sign on it. The next day Andrew pitched the idea of purchasing it to his longtime Smith & Vallee Woodworks business partner Wesley Smith. The concept was simple. They would renovate the building into a gallery space in the front and a home for Andrew and Andrea in the back. A year of renovations followed, the house was warmed by the Vallee’s wedding, and the gallery was launched with Smith & Vallee furniture and artwork by Andrew Vallee. In 2008 Wesley and Sarah Smith were married in the gallery and made Edison their home as well. The gallery has hosted over eighty exhibitions over the last 10 years, featuring legendary artists such as Clayton James, Joel Brock and John Simon, while also leaving room in their schedule to feature up and coming artists like Pieter VanZanden. The gallery features artists ranging from right here in Edison to nationally recognized artists, including David Eisenhour, Rick Allen, Shelly Muzylowski Allen, Lanny Bergner, Lisa Gilley and Karen Hackenberg. The gallery also features the fine woodworking of Smith & Vallee Woodworks, established in 1997. The gallery has grown and thrived over the years. They host a new exhibition reception on the first Saturday of every month, and are open daily from 11-5. They have grown a great community of art supporters who come to their shows every month, and are discovered daily by those passing through the quaint village of Edison. Smith & Vallee is thankful to be part of a vibrant art community, made up of many talented artists, generous patrons and world-class institutions such as the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner and the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham.
