WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU.
Serving the Tri-Cities for over twenty years, the Art Gallery at Evergreen 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.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: In the exhibition Arrangements, the artists delve into the multiple significances held by cut flowers, ornamental gardens and wild plants to reveal how flowers act as surrogates for all kinds of ideas. Drawing on the personal, the political and the cultural meanings of flowers, the artworks in the exhibition go beyond notions of beauty to take an unexpected look at this familiar floral subject matter.

AGE Youth Committee
The AGE Youth Committee is a group of visual arts loving volunteers who support the Art Gallery at Evergreen by helping to create engaging content for younger gallery visitors.
Recent projects include a zine publication, field trips to Emily Carr University of Art + Design and Equinox Gallery, bookbinding and embroidery workshops, and ongoing input on gallery programming. All projects are led by AGE Youth Committee members, with facilitation from our gallery staff. Our goal is to provide our youth committee with the tools and resources they need to make desired programming possible.
