Ryann Mallasch, a graduating senior from Mt. Si High School, was awarded the first Mt. Si Artist Guild Scholarship in 2018.

Mallasch was chosen as the first recipient of the scholarship through her resume, teacher recommendations and her artwork. Mallasch paints as well as creates beautiful pottery. She will be attending Azusa Pacific University in California this fall and will continue her study of art.

“The mission statement of the Guild is to promote art and artists in the Valley, and giving a young artist a scholarship seemed like a great way to do that,” stated Leslie Kreher, guild president, in a press release. “We’ve wanted to start a scholarship for a long time, and I’m proud that we are finally in a position to do this.”

The guild scholarship will be awarded annually. Mallasch has also been asked to display her pottery at the Art Gallery of SnoValley this summer.

The Mt. Si Artist Guild was founded in 2009 and is a nonprofit 501(3)c located in Snoqualmie.

The guild maintains the collectively operated Art Gallery of SnoValley showing art and gifts and offers workshops and displays to promote their members. The group curates artwork for the Mountain View Gallery/ Visitor Center and the Mt. Si Community Center, both in North Bend.

The guild is also sponsoring its first juried art show, which will be on display in September at the gallery at 8130 Railroad Ave., Snoqualmie. The guild is open to new members. You don’t have to be an artist to join. All members are encouraging and welcoming to anyone who loves art. For more information, visit www.mtsiartistguild.org.
