CHELAN -  Showing a new suite of realist landscapes and wildlife photography, award-winning photographer Lance Stark will brighten the winter night, Thursday, January 13, as a prelude to Chelan’s annual Winterfest. 

“From an early age, I was allowed to experiment with my father’s cameras. Perhaps it was his enthusiasm that infected me to continue to grow, learn and explore photography in the world around me,” Chelan-based  Lance Stark said. “I was an apprentice of the photographic image under my father. However my main career as an aircraft technician led my passion as more avocation and less of a vocation. All in all, It’s been a great trade off,” Stark added.
The Stark art exhibit and personal appearance are co-sponsored by Main Street Gallery and Sigillo Cellars. The show will be at the winery’s new facility at the historic Lakeside School building that’s open to the public from 12–6 p.m. at 2037 West Woodin Avenue in Chelan. 
“We trust this art show will be the first of many in in the coming year,” boutique and gallery owner April Marcel said. “Open to guests over 12, the show opening will blend Stark’s beautiful images, Sigillo Cellars' delicious wines. This will be in their tasting room with dramatic winter views of the lake. Guests will be able to peruse a selection of fashion items from Main Street Gallery. What’s better to do on a cold, Thursday, winter night?”
“This art and wine event will allow us to premiere our new public house bar that features live music by Gavin McLaughlin on our permanent soundstage plus our upcoming restaurant that’s scheduled to open later in the year,” Ashtyn Catoe, Sigillo Cellars' manager reported.
“The wine and art scene in the Chelan Valley is growing at a steady rate,” said Main Street Gallery Art Curator Terry LaBrue, who now calls the valley home. “It takes continuous exposure but nobody needs special training to appreciate and collect art or taste wine. I encourage everyone to acquire what that like and surround themselves, their family, and businesses with inspired art and experience the fruit of the vine.  
“Already, the gallery is rotating a new range of collectable fine art including: sculptures, carvings, lithographs, and paintings by David Marty,  John Ebner, Diane Paton-Peel, and Phil Skochilich,” LaBrue added. 
Main Street Gallery is the largest fine-art gallery in Chelan and features pieces retailing from a just a few dollars for a lithographic print to original paintings worth hundreds. 
The Main Street Gallery is located at 208 Woodin Avenue, Chelan. Telephone 509-682-9262, email Open Monday through Thursday 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m.-8 p.m., closed Sundays. Website:
