An Uncommon Beauty

Stop by the Favell Museum until July 31 to enjoy a painting project by Vicki Shuck and Janice Druian depicting life and land east of the cascades. The spirit of independence has its roots in the generations of farmers and ranchers who settled these areas and this exhibit shares the words of people who live in these areas along with Vicki’s and Janice’s paintings. The Shaw journal issue “Where Fortune Calls” features stories on the founding of many of these communities.

The Favell will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday with admission at $10 for adults, $5 for kids age 6 to 16, and $25 for a family four (two adults and two children).


Be sure to visit the Shaw Historical Library and see the new display “Rope & Wire: The Poetry of Western Ranching”
