Welcome to the Art Gallery at Evergreen.
Serving the Tri-Cities for over twenty years, the Art Gallery at Evergreen (AGE) engages visitors through curated exhibitions, activated by public programs and dynamic school workshops. The AGE focuses on contemporary art and ideas explored by professional artists working in all mediums. We believe that art is integral to the fabric of daily life and seek opportunities to connect people with artists and the creative process.

Evan Lee: Forged
November 20, 2021 – January 30, 2022
Forged is an exhibition of photography, painting and sculpture by Evan Lee, a Vancouver-based Chinese Canadian artist who explores the limits and possibilities of materials (particularly lens-based media) through experimentation, adaptability and an economy of means—a process that considers the extraordinary within the multitude of mundane, easily discarded and mass-produced objects that occupy our lives.
