Yakima Valley artist's unique works on display now through end of December

YAKIMA – The Larson Gallery and Yakima Valley Museum in Yakima are displaying artwork by Yakima Valley’s Leo Adams. His work and designs have captivated art enthusiasts due to the unique and simple mediums Adams chooses to utilize. At the museum, “Leo Adams: Art∙Home” is on display through Dec. 28. Adams has turned his home into a showcase for his artwork. Not only do his paintings decorate the walls, but many of his fixtures and furnishings are his designs. Adams’ home has been featured in numerous publications, including Metropolitan Home, Renovation Style, Pacific Northwest and Washington Magazine. He has a unique talent for creating intricate designs from modest materials, such as plywood, dried vegetation, rusty metal and other “found” objects. It’s the design elements included in his home that are on display in “Leo Adams: Art∙Home” at the museum. The Larson Gallery is featuring “Leo Adams: Art∙Life,” which is a comprehensive retrospective of his career, spanning more than 50 years. There are examples of his early artwork to some of his most recent achievements. Larson Gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. The Yakima Valley Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
