RedDoor Gallery Announces Soft Opening on Friday, May 3

Red Door

Camas, WA — The public is invited to experience RedDoor Gallery (RDG) for the first time on Friday, May 3rd from 5-8 pm. Renovations are complete at the new art gallery, located in the historic building at 411 NE Dallas Street in downtown Camas. An official ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration will follow on Friday, June 7th. The gallery will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 12 pm to 7 pm and by special appointment.

RDG’s mission is to provide a vibrant art space open to the public and foster a creative art-making community. In addition to a gallery of fine art, quality art instructional classes are offered in RDG’s professionally equipped studio. The vibrant art space is designed to include a small artist community within the building for individual painters who desire a private art studio on a lease basis.

RDG seeks to promote the joy and transformative power of art while actively supporting the work of local visual artists. Artwork on display features diverse fine art from ten locally acclaimed artists: Sarah Bang, Shirley Bishop, Matthew Clarkson, Heidi Curley, Cheryl Folkers, Dave Garbot, David Gerton, Cheryl Mathieson, Liz Pike and Tamra Sheline.

“We are developing a thriving art space that will last for years to come. Camas has a history of supporting a vibrant arts community and we are very excited about this new artistic partnership,” said Liz Pike. 

She is joined by business art/partners Heidi Curley and Tamra Sheline in the new venture. In addition to having fine art in the gallery, Curley and Sheline will also occupy a spacious portion of the upstairs mezzanine as their personal art studio space as well as teaching several on-site art classes each month.

Pike noted her affection for the space at 411 NE Dallas Street. She opened her first art gallery there in 2005. “I love this building; it feels like coming home,” said Pike. 

Curley and Sheline also have history with the space, having leased art studio space there previously. 

“We are thrilled to be involved with this new art experience in Camas,” said Curley. “We look forward to sharing art with the general public,” added Curley. 

“We are delighted to open our space up to the community to create an authentic art hub for creative people and art patrons alike,” added Sheline.

In addition to hosting an upscale First Friday Art Walk reception from 5 pm to 8 pm on the first Friday of each month, RDG will also host weekly Thirsty Art Thursday featuring a live painting demonstration from 5-7 pm.
