The city of Enumclaw, 4Culture of King County and Arts Alive! are presenting “Class Act,” a month-long exhibit of current works by students of local art class teachers.

The exhibit opened Oct. 4 and will run through Nov. 6 in Gallery 2018, found at Enumclaw City Hall. A community reception for the artists is planned for 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 19.

The Enumclaw Arts Commissioners invited the teachers and their students to exhibit in Gallery 2018 to share with the community the artwork being done and the kind of classes offered locally for adults interested in improving their art skills. This exhibit features artworks in oil, watercolor and pastel.

The classes take place at the Arts Alive Gallery. Instructors are Lorrie Maras, Elaine Lynest and Helma Raycher.

Arts Alive! is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that raises funds to support the Plateau arts community.

The local arts commissioners are Anne Crandall, chair; Janet Berthon, vice chair; Elaine Lynest; Jody Olson; and Darlene Dihel.

Gallery 2018 is in the council chambers at Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. Hours for the exhibition space are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
