What A Weekend! February 21 and 22

Pansies and Primroses

It was necessary to hunt all over the Tri Cities to find fresh spring flowers to replace the winter ornamental cabbages that had lost their artistic appeal.  February 14th, 2020.  I did not plant peas, but i did fill the pots with color.

Lower Columbia Basin Shrub-Steppe

Bookart by Bobi Wilson

A Northwestern view of the local mountain range 

(etched copper, through the windows) with geological, environmental and ecological information hand- scribed  and drawn though a naturalist's journal.

The solidity of basalt, the certainty of the mountains, the steadfastness of the Columbia River and the magnitude of events that created them belie the fragile nature of the Lower Columbia Shrub-Steppe region.

The Flora, Fauna and creatures expressed on fragile paper represent only some of the local species considered Endangered, Threatened, of Concern, or Watched. As easy as a simple snipping of thread these species can be gone and with them much of the rarity, beauty and integrity of this place we call home.

A day in the Life of a Little Monster

BA Brad Anderson's Coloring Book is now available in our gallery. You can get one now and/or have Brad sign one for you at the Artist Reception being held on Friday, February 21st from 5 to 8 PM (Brad will be hanging out to see family, friends and fans from noon to 9) His coloring book is adorable, most likely conjured up from childhood memories.

On the day, December 23, 2019

Jay Hollick, an art instructor from Denver, and his mother, Irene Heurkens, came into the gallery today and I invited them to doodle on our wall.  Here here they are, busy with with their fine point Sharpies, creating right on the wall. We are unveiling the doodle wall in January and leaving it in place for an indeterminate amount of time. . 


Our festive and whimsical Holiday Art show will remain in place through December 31st.  

On JANURARY  5th, The Gallery will re-open with a a delightful Spring show.

We will unveil our doodle wall that local artists have been creating for weeks,

 (imagine how fun it's been to be invited to scribble on the gallery walls.... )

We have prints of Alicia Tormey's exquisite encaustic florals

And new work by Laural Gable, DS Watkins, MaryAnn Free Smith, Nathan Robles, Trevor Anderson and Neva Scott.  


opens sometime in January, stay tuned for updates






What the heck!!!! Santa walked in the door today, November 16, 2019.  I asked him what he was doing in the neighborhood.  "Just checking up on you, Neva," he replied.  He also thought our gallery was the coolest place EVER. Which was a very fine compliment coming from the toy man himself.

He hung out for a bit and wanted to sign the guest book.  I asked him where he was from.

"Ho, ho ho," replied, "You KNOW where I live!" 

Oh, yeah, silly me, I'd thought for a minute he was just somebody  playing dress up>... duh.....


PLASTIC?  Yes. Plastic, re-purposed, re-imagined, re-appreciated, found, salvaged, rescued, saved from landfills, oceans, beaches, playroom floors, and turned into art. Is it any more outrageous than Marcel Duchamp's sideways urinal? More colorful, at least... this is the art you should be seeing on pediatric dentist walls, in doctors offices, childcare facilities and in the homes of daring collectors of art.

Neva Scott Art is a gallery located near the entrance to the charming and historic Parkway in Richland, Washington.

 Just a block from the beautiful Columbia River and Howard Amon Park, we showcase fine art created by local artists

 and artists with ties to the TriCities. The gallery opened for business in late June, 2019.  

We were overwhelmed with a warm response from the community at our 

     Grand Opening on July 12.
